ANNOUNCING: Tropical Fuck Storm
Deep States

Most of us have lived some inner Tropical Fuck Storm over this past year and a half. Even for a band that’s made a career out of crafting songs attuned to political and social crisis, there was a new bleak in the air for Tropical Fuck Storm, what the band calls “give-a-fuck fatigue.”

The third album from the avant-punk quad—aptly titled Deep States—mines familiar ground as well as new cultural terrains, while digging deeper into the subjective state of contemporary panic.

The VIP Edition is on Yellow & Orange Moonphase vinyl ltd. to 500, includes exclusive bonus flexi-disc of "Lose The Baby (Live)." Ltd. 2k on Teal LP, Orange LP, CD, Green Cassette, & Digital right this way…



We’re thrilled to announce that the JNR Family has gained a new member: Cedric Noel!

Cedric has spent the past decade creating soul-stirring pieces that muse on identity, Black beauty, and celebration, informed by his unique worldview: He was born in Niger to Canadian and Mozambican/Belgian parents, spent his upbringing around the world, and is currently based in Montreal.

Over the past decade, Cedric has released a number of critically praised full-length albums, EPs and collaborative works of his own, while also playing bass for acts like Ada Lea, Alexia Avina, and Dana Gavanski. This fall, he’ll be releasing a milestone piece of work on JNR, but for now, check out his previous work on Bandcamp...

The Witness

Self-recorded and self-produced over the majority of 2020 – through a year of strife, solitude and reflection – The Witness finds the band holding a magnifying glass over their own default state of playing and performing. “There’s something interesting about the idea of a collective witness, being a witness to the time we’re living in now,” vocalist-guitarist Ben Shemie reflects.

VIP Edition is Black & Pink Pinwheel vinyl, limited to 500 & includes an exclusive bonus flexi-disc of SUUNS cover of Colder's "Crazy Love." Limited Edition Bright Blue LP, Black LP, CD & Digital also available right this way…


Essential Aliens

Jason Albertini has solidified and simplified the Helvetia sound with new album Essential Aliens. The character of the recordings are informed with warm fuzz and intimate room sounds. The songs are short blasts of psychedelic chill, unrooted by genre, a rummage around an alien radio dial.

The visual elements were inspired by a recurring dream in which Jason's life is turned upside-down by a ghostly force. The dreams culminate in Jason awaking convinced that he, too, is a ghost.

VIP Edition is ltd to 400 on ‘Cerulean Blue Inside Ectoplasm Clear' vinyl & comes with Flexi of new unreleased track “For Sam”. Also available in Ectoplasm Clear LP & Digital.


OUT NOW: Lou Barlow
Reason to Live

Over the last 18 months, we have engaged in an experiment with Lou Barlow known as the "Artist Enabler Club". This incredible series consisted of countless new and archival songs being released in limited formats to club members – AND had the effect of creating a ton of amazing music that wouldn't have existed otherwise. The culmination of this creative experiment is Lou’s new LP, Reason To Live.

Featuring 17 new songs, this is Lou Barlow’s first full-length in 6 years (since 2015's Brace The Wave). Subscribers to Lou's Artist Enabler Club, have likely already received the ultra special early limited edition of this record. Formats available now, Light Blue Vinyl, CD, Light Pink Cassette, & Digital.


OUT NOW: Kishi Bashi

Arranged and recorded over the last year (in Emigrant, Montana), this EP serves as a time capsule of the 2020 condition as it meditates on the anxieties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the comforts of nature, the pains of resource-fueled conflicts, and the resiliency that emerges from struggle.
