RIYL: Generationals, Dr. Dog, Miniature Tigers, The Dodos
Label: Paper Bag Records
I’ve been looking at Paper Bag Records for the last few months waiting for their next release because they are notorious forÂ putting out great works from awesome bands. Today, I took a look after a 2 day hiatus from vinyl hunting and much to my surprise,Â Born RuffiansÂ are putting out their fifth studio album! The Canadian version is blue translucent and the US version is clear. If you are going for the Canadian version, there is a $6 USD international shipping fee. My total come to around 26 USD. The clear vinyl is also $20 USD.

Here’s a little about the album:
Produced by Richard Swift (Foxygen, The Shins), Uncle, Duke & The Chief is a record less concerned with what sounds hip than what feels good. In the Ruffiansâ€™ case that meant shedding some of their more arty influences (the Pixies, Talking Heads) and reconnecting with the sounds they first heard on their parentsâ€™ turntables as kids: Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, and pre-psychedelic Beatles. â€śItâ€™s about going back to the deepest, most satisfying itch to scratch,â€ť says lead singer Luke Lalonde. And in doing so, the album takes you back to a time when the Ruffians sounded less like a band and more like a gang, raising a wild ruckus and speaking in telepathic tongues.
Out February 16, 2018.
