Liturgy – Ananon – 93696
Liturgy transcends the traditional parameters of what constitutes a rock band. Founded by Haela Ravenna Hunt-Hendrix, Liturgy is a part of a shared discipline of composition, art, and philosophy that thrives on exploring the spaces between. As an ever-evolving practice Hunt-Hendrix has incorporated elements of black metal, art rock, opera, and trap production into the musical language of Liturgy while engaging with transcendental, theological and eschatological theory through lectures series’ and art installations. A profound sense of yearning and emotional depth weaves through the Liturgy’s dense layers and anchors the project’s increasingly complex and innovative work. 93696 is the purest synthesis of the diversity of Liturgy, a sprawling and monumental double album exploring religion, cosmic love, the feminine, and metamorphosis while manifesting the ecstatic with breathtaking grandeur.
MV&EE – No Money – Green Ark
Vermont cosmic psych duo MV & EE (Matt Valentine and Erika Elder) have been at the forefront of the psych folk /freak folk movement since early 2000.

Green Ark marks their first collaboration with Ramble Records and is chocked full of their trademark cerebral boogie and psych freefolk
The Graveyard Bookies – Johnny Two Sheds – The Graveyard Bookies
The Graveyard Bookies have officially released their debut EP, featuring four tracks that showcase their unique blend of old-school metal and blues-based rock with modern influences. The focus track, “Johnny Two Sheds,” is a high-energy, guitar-driven anthem that perfectly captures the band’s raw and raucous sound.
Formed in February of last year by guitarist and vocalist Geoff Kinch, The Graveyard Bookies enlisted the help of good friends Ian Yabsley on drums and Matt Sparks on bass, both of whom had previously played together in The Thudpuckers. After completing four original songs, the band welcomed lead guitarist Brian Lamb to the lineup, adding the perfect complement to their dynamic sound.
