Hold tight for the second wave of August releases!!

This batch consists a wide variety of genres including: Great singer songwriter, textured gothic and legendary metal.

SUZANNE VEGA – CLOSE UP VOLUME 3, STATES OF BEING (1LP) – MOVLP375
This third installment is a collection of her most haunting songs.
Vega used to call them her 'Mental Health' songs, as she explains: "they are descriptions of a place deep inside.
Anyone can feel like the narrator in 'Penitent', or 'Cracking', depending on your mood."

LEONARD COHEN – SONGS FROM A ROOM (1LP) – MOVLP325
Songs From A Room's naked honesty and fearless emotional intimacy is emphasized by the restrained, almost Spartan production of Bob Johnston, and again shows that Cohen was a major creative force in contemporary songwriting.

JOHN MAYER – ROOM FOR SQUARES (1LP) – MOVLP364
After earlier re-releases of the John Mayer albums 'Heavier Things' (MOVLP206) and 'Continuum' (MOVLP095) now it's time for Mayer's 2001 debut 'Room for Squares', which was produced by John Alagía (Dave Matthews Band) to receive the Music on Vinyl treatment.
Mayer earned a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the single 'Your Body is a Wonderland'.

DEEP PURPLE – PURPENDICULAR (2LP) – MOVLP361
The legendary band's 15th studio album (never released on vinyl before) was the most experimental Deep Purple album to date. There was more focus on the guitar, they used pinch harmonies and they sounded like they were having fun again. The excellent riffs and awe-inspiring solos appear on two 180 grams audiophile vinyl LPs, alongside the exclusive – and elusive – bonus track 'Don't Hold Your Breath'.

FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM – ELIZIUM (1LP) – MOVLP319
The English gothic rock band Fields of the Nephilim formed in 1984.
'Elizium', their third studio album, was originally released in 1990.
The album is considered to be one of their best, showcasing their ability to write textured, loud pieces of goth/rock but at the same time with the ability to create their own sound.
