Sara Hickman - Newborn Too

From Sara: “I’m thrilled to announce the latest addition to my music collection is for children, parents and ANYONE having trouble sleeping. I promise you will sleep because every time I listened back to check on edits, song arrangements, etc, I fell into a deep slumber. (And this is a singular time I WANT people to fall asleep to my music!) So, if you enjoy the love and care on the original Newborn, created after Lily Blessing was born, you’ll love snoozing through songs by me, songs from musicals, Billy Joel, John Lennon, the Sherman Bros., David Roth, up and coming songwriters and a special song called “Welcome Home,” written by Eddy Hobizal and myself.”

We have some great bundles available, including both Newborn and Newborn, Too for a discounted price. These make great gifts for the parents-to-be!

The Howlin’ Brothers - Trouble

The Howlin’ Brothers latest release, Trouble, was produced and engineered by indie rocker Brendan Benson of The Raconteurs and solo career fame. Benson describes Trouble as “effortless artistry . . . woebegone, lovelorn and wrought with pain, but not without installments of lightheartedness and beauty, downtrodden and then uplifted.” He adds, “The Howlin’ Brothers are somehow able to conjure images of a bygone era and make it believable. The Howlin’ Brothers live the life they sing about in their songs. They are authentic and the real deal through and through. On top of that, they are the hardest working musicians I've come across. They play their instruments every waking moment and are truly possessed by music.”

Benson recently joined the Howlin’ Brothers at a record release party and it was featured in Rolling Stone magazine. Click here to order Trouble on CD, Vinyl, and Digital Download!

Empyrium - The Turn Of The Tides

Twelve years after their last studio effort Weiland, Empyrium - the masters of natural ambiances set to music - return with a much-anticipated new album. Notwithstanding their creative break, The Turn Of The Tides is an Empyrium-album par excellence, although it bears strong testimony to the artistic and personal growth Schwadorf and Helm have undergone since 2002. The Turn Of The Tides addresses cycles, both within nature - the tides of the sea, the change of seasons, the eternal circulation of water - as well as human life, and insinuates how everything rediscovers itself in everything.

Along with the new release, Empyrium is putting out a Vinyl Box Set containing all their recordings in a collectible wooden box. The box itself is made of pine and beech wood from Empyrium's home in Rhoen/Franconia and comes with an embossed Empyrium branding. "1994 - 2014" is limited to 500 copies.

Preorder now in the Prophecy store, releases July 18th.
