Dirty Heads

Just when you thought you had the Dirty Heads fig­ured out, the Hunt­ing­ton Beach reg­gae crew switched up their sound once again. On sixth stu­dio al­bum SWIM TEAM, they mixed el­e­ments of hip-hop, house, al­ter­na­tive rock, dub­step, pop and world mu­sic.



A su­per­group formed from mem­bers of Pan­tera, Mud­vayne and Noth­ing­face, HELLYEAH have spent the last decade trans­form­ing into a group that stands out on its own. This deluxe edi­tion of UNDEN!ABLE fea­tures four ex­clu­sive live tracks to bring their mon­strous live show straight to your bed­room.

Colter Wall

Hail­ing from Swift Cur­rent, Saskatchewan, Colter Wall’s brand of folk and blue­grass has gone in­ter­na­tional, with co-signs from Amer­i­can folk icon Steve Earle and pro­ducer ex­traor­di­naire Rick Ru­bin. Nev­er­the­less, Wall re­mains true to his roots on his de­but al­bum.
