New Release Round-Up 01-27-15

New Releases - Tues. 27 Jan 

GOV'T MULE - SCO-MULE - Evil Teen Records 
Gov’t Mule
 release Sco-Mule , which spotlights two 1999 shows that the original trio of Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts played with jazz guitarist John Scofield.  The Atlanta performances, which also featured keyboardist Dr. Dan Matrazzo, have been widely traded, discussed and revered by Mule fans for 15 years.


PAPA ROACH - F.E.A.R. - Eleven Seven Music
This eighth album from the nu-metal survivors is their follow-up to 2012's The Connection. Expanding upon the electronic edge first introduced on that album, this release sees Papa Roach turning in another fan-pleasing slab of melodic, industrial-tinged pop-metal. The singles "Warriors" and "Face Everything and Rise" are included.

Danny Kroha - Angels Watching Over Me

Danny Kroha - Angels Watching Over MeDANNY KROHA - ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME - Third Man Records
As a mainstay on the Detroit music scene and founding member of the Gories, Danny Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention. With his first full-length release under his own name, it may come as an unexpected turn that he’s dealing in classic gospel and folk songs. Playing every instrument himself, the end result is a collection of compelling, timeless traditional songs. With Angels Watching Over Me, Kroha firmly establishes himself as one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre in desperate need of someone with his creativity and vision in moving forward the classic American art form.


THE LONE BELLOW - THEN CAME THE MORNING - Descendant Records
Then Came the Morning, the second album by the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based indie-folk trio The Lone Bellow, opens with a crest of churchly piano, a patter of drums, and a fanfare of voices harmonizing like a sunrise. It’s a powerful introduction, enormous and overwhelming, as Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin testify mightily to life’s great struggles and joys, heralding the morning that dispels the dark night: “Then came the morning! It was bright, like the light that you kept from your smile!” 


PUNCH BROTHERS - THE PHOSPHORESCENT BLUES - Nonesuch
After working with T Bone Burnett numerous times—most recently on the soundtrack for the Joel and Ethan Coen film Inside Llewyn Davis and the related Town Hall/Showtime concert Another Day, Another Time—Punch Brothers decided to join forces with the multiple Grammy Award–winning producer for their new record. Last summer, the band and Burnett spent a month at Hollywood’s Ocean Way Recording laying down the songs that guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjo player Noam Pikelny, mandolinist and lead singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher had written during several writing “retreats” last winter and spring.


Venom - From The Very Depths

VENOM - FROM THE VERY DEPTHS - Spinefarm
Venom - From The Very DepthsFrom The Very Depths is the brand new album and 14th overall release from Venom, the originators of Black Metal!!! “This album is perfect, all three members are totally over-the-top confident with the new songs and the production,” says Venom frontman Cronos. “We had a great atmosphere in the studio while we were recording. Dante created pure thunder from his drums, while Rage tears the flesh off your face with his riffs, making everything fall into place so well. It’s a strong release and really shows the band maturing into an unstoppable force of pure Black Metal. We can’t wait to play the new songs live for the Legions… Hell Yeah!”

Father John Misty - I Love You HoneybearFATHER JOHN MISTY - I LOVE YOU HONEYBEAR - Sub Pop
I Love You, Honeybear was recorded from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles. 'There’s a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn. The songs are a narration of my experience falling in love. My ambition was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love, the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons with an imprint that is undeniably my own. Blammo'.

With the success of these records came '66 tours with the Rolling Stones and Beach Boys. From all reports, the Standells proved a superb live act. But for decades, their on-stage reputation rested on an earlier, Pre-Tower label live album documenting the Standells in an unrecognizably clean-cut night club incarnation.
