Private Space, the group’s third album, is a previously untapped vibe at the heart of The Indications. Pushing beyond the boundaries of the funk and soul on their previous releases, Private Space unlocks the door to a wider range of sounds and launches boldly into a world of synthy modern soul and disco beats dotted with strings. It’s an organic, timeless record that’s as fresh as clean kicks and familiar as your favorite well-worn LP. Developed after being apart for much of the year, Private Space is creatively explosive and delights in upending expectations. Its 10 tracks are both an escapist fantasy and a much-needed recentering after a tumultuous 2020. Throughout, The Indications highlight a collective resiliency – as well as the power of a good song to be a light in the darkness.

Durand Jones & The Indications have long provided the soulful soundtrack for such deep thoughts, both on stage and on your turntable. But as the world slowly resets from the chaos of the past year, Durand Jones & The Indications’ Private Space is arriving at just the right time.

The album features some of Prince’s only studio collaborations with the bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Chris Coleman, and engineer Jason Agel, with additional contributions from New Power Generation singers Shelby J, Liv Warfield, and Elisa Fiorillo and keyboardist Morris Hayes, who Prince also recruited to co-produce the album. The Deluxe Edition of Welcome 2 America combines the 2LP and CD versions of the album with a never before released Blu-Ray of Prince’s full April 28, 2011 performance at the Forum, part of the Welcome 2 America Tour’s historic 21 Nite Stand in Los Angeles.

Tony Glausi has created a mixtape to his life, thanks, in part, to his willingness to try anything. EVERYTHING AT ONCE is cinematic, a feature length production introducing Tony Glausi the polymath. "The album is literally a two year snapshot of my life. Each story is like a scene from a film, or I guess 10 different films" Glausi concludes. They're all worth watching, over and over again.

Hieronymus Dros takes no responsibility for any cigarette habits formed, bank heists performed, turtle necks purchased, rooftop sniping acts of domestic terrorism, illegal gun fights, federal automobile pursuits or unprotected sexual encounters that may be perceived as being caused by the extensive play of the audio recordings on (but not limited to) "The Age Of Hieronymus" and all subsequently related materials. If you're gonna make a disclaimer about your album, that's the way it should be done. Australian producer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Allister, known as Dros in the studio, banded together with 15+ other like-minded soul brothers and sisters to create The Age of Hieronymus, a disgustingly good concoction of cosmic jazz fusion, soul funk and hip hop. A whopper of a double album at 17 tracks, this scorching debut could comfortably soundtrack your next block party barbecue, a bank heist, or a steamy evening in (and morning after) with your concubine.

Group member and songwriter Thomas Gatling says this about the song:"During slavery, songs were a form of communication for black people. These songs became known as hymns, or as our seasoned saints call them, the songs that brought us over. "Fight On" was inspired by a hymn called "Hold On (Just A Little While Longer)", a song used to encourage black people to not give up. Through that song, God gave me "Fight On." It was written to amplify the voices that for so long have fallen on deaf ears and to encourage and uplift people to continue the fight for equality and against white supremacy. Be empowered, my people. We are not thugs, we are innovators. We are intelligent and our feelings, hopes, dreams, and lives matter. Fight on, and everything's gonna be alright.

Gold-Diggers Sound is the new album from Leon Bridges. This R&B collection is birthed from extended late nights at the Los Angeles, California studio of the same name. The album celebrates Leon’s immersive experience of creating music in the same East Hollywood room where he lived, worked and drank over the course of two years. The soulful collaboration between Leon as an artist and the space itself was so encompassing that he chose to name the album after the soon-to-be legendary complex.
