Created in 2010 by Marlon Magnée and Sacha Got, two young men from Biarritz in France, La Femme is a very unique band. Between psychedelia, surf rock, electronica, krautrock and even disco they have managed to create their own very recognizable sound and have become one of the most influential French indie bands of the century. After two Gold records in France, several sold-out US tours and glowing support from the likes of The New Yorker, KCRW, NPR, Flaunt, The Guardian, Q, Uncut, Paste and many more, La Femme will be releasing their third album in the Spring. And for RSD Drops, they would like to please their fans by releasing two unreleased tracks on vinyl.
“Runway” / “Me Suive”
Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Daniel Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply. For RSD Drops this year comes the vinyl debut of this critically acclaimed album. Pressed on Translucent Ruby inside Opaque Orchid colored vinyl, and limited to a worldwide run of 4000. Includes a download card.

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. Originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently, The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This release as part of RSD Drops marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl, with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.
Side A: 1. “The Truth” 2. “Don’t Play Me” 3. “Circle of Amour” 4. “3rd Eye 5. “Dionne” 6. “Man In A Uniform”

Heir to Despair is the 11th studio album by Sigh. While the previous album Graveward (2015) was rather symphonic orchestral stuff, Heir to Despair is pointing at the completely opposite direction.
