This week’s new releases include new albums from Sinead O’Connor, Cocksure (Chris Connelly) and Stiff Little Fingers, box sets from John Foxx and Suzanne Vega and the documentary “Every Everything: The Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart.”
Not only is Wax Trax! Records being reborn as a label, but the famed Chicago record store will return next month, too — for one day only. Julia Nash is planning a one-day Wax Trax! pop-up shop inside Windy City music venue Metro on June 15 to mark the label’s first release.
The legendary Wax Trax! Records imprint will be reborn this summer under the direction of Julia Nash — daughter of label co-founder Jim Nash — and will mark its resurrection with the release of a 12-inch single from Cocksure, the new project featuring label mainstay Chris Connelly and Acumen Nation’s Jason Novak.
