Helvetia "Dromomania"

We are extremely excited to share this news... Helvetia is back! We haven't heard from Helvetia (pronounced “hel-vee-shuh") since we released "Nothing In Rambling" back in 2012. The project (led by Jason Albertini) was essentially absorbed into Built To Spill as full time members. And with the new BTS record under their belt, we now have the first bonafide Helvetia album in over three years. The new album Dromomania is raw, experimental, and psych-tinged. The songs evoke the simplicity of ‘70s Kinks, with a good dose of Captain Beefheart and the randomness of The Residents.


Lou Barlow "Brace The Wave"

We are extremely excited to announce that Lou Barlow will release his first solo album in six years on JNR! Barlow's extensive and celebrated catalog includes releases from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, and his new solo album will mark the third release under his own name. You can hear snippets of various album tracks -- along with commentary from Barlow himself -- in this new album trailer.

Released September 4th, we have a special VIP Exclusive edition, limited to just 500 hand-numbered copies on marbled pink & seafoam vinyl (available while they last). Plus, 100 random copies will include an original Polaroid "selfie" by Lou Barlow.


You heard that right... Dumb Numbers w/ David Lynch, Melvins, and David Yow.

The release is limited to a one-time pressing of 975 hand-numbered copies, packaged within a custom wooden box set, with screen-printed art by Mackie Osborne.



We are very happy to unleash the debut full-length from J Fernandez! On "Many Levels of Laughter", J Fernandez invites us into his own, very special universe. Blending lo-fi recording techniques with psychedelic, dreamy melancholy textures, this is a debut for the history books.
