Warner Brothers has scheduled a 180g vinyl LP reissue of The Nightfly for May 8.  The Nightfly is the first solo album from Steely Dan member, Donald Fagen, which was originally released in 1982.  If you’re a vinyl addict like myself, you have this on your checklist now.

Warner Brothers plan the US release of Vows by Kimbra, an interesting pop vocalist.  Kimbra is one of several new Pop phenomenon pampered by record labels in the wake of successes by Adele, and other talented female vocalists.  Vows was originally released in 2011 in New Zealand and Australia, where it unleashed three singles.  Success?  Oh, that means a release in the US.  This US issue is expected on May 22.  Kimbra is heard on her official SoundCloud page.
