New Release Round-Up 09-30-14

Lucinda Williams - Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone

Lucinda Williams' new album is her most ambitious release to date. Twenty + songs were recorded off and on between September of 2013 through March of 2014. Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone finds Lucinda tapping into her southern roots for this double album. The songs are amplified by a range of musical talents that include Greg Leisz, Tony Joe White, Pete Thomas, Gia Ciambotti, Bill Frisell and Jakob Dylan.  The album is available now and you can preview the album which includes the single Something Wicked This Way Comes right here.




Prince - Art Official AgePrince returns with not one but two albums this week, the first, Art Official Age is a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton. Sonically the record is a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk. The melodies are immediate and prominent as ever and Prince’s vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics.  His second album Plectrumelectrum is a classic band record, with 3rdEyeGirl which includes Prince, Donna Grantis (guitar), Hannah Ford Welton (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass). Recorded live and in analog the album is an electrifying funk-rock statement.



The Rural Alberta Advantage - Mended With GoldThe new album Mended With Gold from The Rural Alberta Advantage makes it clear that The RAA have reached the next level. Two key elements led to the band composing the most fully-realized work of their career: the band’s road warrior status and the chance to take full advantage of their time in the studio this time around. The trio spent months shaping the songs, sometimes first on keyboard, then guitar (and visa versa), and taking others on the road to workshop live. The album is available now and you can watch the amazing video which captures the band at their best while on a recent tour here.

Melissa Etheridge - This Is ME

Oscar and two-time Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge releases her latest studio album This is ME. For the vibrant collection, Etheridge teamed with some of the most creative, inventive figures on the music scene: Jerrod Bettis (Adele, One Republic, Eric Hutchinson, Gavin DeGraw), Jon Levine (Nelly Furtado, K’Naan, Selena Gomez), Jerry Wonda (Grammy Award-winning producer of the Fugees, Mary J. Blige, Akon) and Roccstar (Usher, Chris Brown) at the forefront. Recorded in New York and Los Angeles, the album features 11 new songs all written or co-written by Melissa Etheridge.   The album is available now and you can watch the video for her single Take My Number here.



Madi Diaz - Phantom

Called “the most danceable break up record ever” by LA Weekly, Phantom was recorded in Madi Diaz’s newly adopted home of Los Angeles, produced by Nick Ruth (Mikky Ekko, Active Child) and mixed by John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric, Oh Land) at NYC’s famed Electric Lady Studios. The album’s 11 tracks expand upon Madi’s brand of sophisticated indie pop songs, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars.   The album is available now and you can preview the album as well as take a look at her video for the amazing track Stay Together here.


Plus there are other great, new releases including Blake Shelton who following 2013's platinum-selling Based on a True Story..., retains his producer of choice, Scott Hendricks, for these sessions. Despite its title, Bringing Back the Sunshine is a grittier offering than his previous couple of albums, but thematically the songs call on his experience of growing up in a small Oklahoma town. Seven-time Grammy winning trio Lady Antebellum's fifth studio album 747 is released this week. Nathan Champman co-produced the album with Lady A for the Capitol Records Nashville release. In The Valley Below's fantastic debut album The Belt which included the breakout summer hit 'Peaches' is now available on vinyl and you can check out the video for the track as well as preview the album here. Multi-platinum Dublin rockers The Script release their much anticipated 4th studio effort called No Sound Without Silence. Charlottesville, Virginia brothers Abe, James and Sam Wilson (aka, rock outfit Sons of Bill) release their superb new album Love and Logic via Thirty Tigers.  Flying Colors is the talent-ridden supergroup consisting of guitarist Steve Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse, bass player Dave LaRue and the comparatively new talent, pop singer/songwriter Casey McPherson. The band challenged conventional wisdom about combining virtuoso music and melodic songwriting in their new album, Second Nature.   On the follow-up to his tender, Baroque-infused debut Lysandre, former Girls frontman Christopher Owens takes a different path with the country-infused A New Testament. And (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, the follow-up to debut album Definitely Maybe, is Oasis' biggest-selling album with 22 million copies sold worldwide. It was recorded between May and June 1995 in Rockfield Studios, Monmouthshire, with Owen Morris and Noel Gallagher producing. Released on October 2nd 1995 it spent 10 weeks at No.1, is the 5th biggest-selling album in UK chart history and became the band's breakthrough album in the US where it sold 4 million copies. The new edition has been remastered from the original tapes by Ian Cooper at London's Metropolis Studios, supervised by the album's producer Owen Morris.  The album is also available as a Single Disc Remasterd VersionRemastered Vinyl and a Deluxe Vinyl Box Set

LOOKING AHEAD OUT NEXT WEEK

The Barr Brothers - Sleeping OperatorLooking ahead to next week's chart, we are excited to present an Early Listen for The Barr Brothers.  'Sleeping Operator' represents an immense creative output. The group, featuring brothers Brad on guitar/vocals and Andrew on drums, classical harpist Sarah Pagé, and pianist/bassist Andrès Vial, recorded 40 tracks in the process of making this record. The 13 songs on 'Sleeping Operator' are meditative and explosive, exploring the far reaches of folk laced with West African influences, hypnotic modernist pulsing and beyond. While the record extends into cinematic and other-worldly territories, it maintains a campfire-like intimacy throughout. The album is available now for Pre-Order and you can preview the album and watch the video for their single Half Crazy here.


Philip Selway - WeatherhouseWeatherhouse is the sophomore solo album from Radiohead's drummer Philip Selway, and the follow-up to 2010's Familial. A more complex and involving album than his mostly acoustic debut, Weatherhouse, has something of the feel of latter-day Radiohead or Yorke's solo work but with an uncategorizable '80s/'90s melodic twist. The single "Coming Up for Air" is included. The album is available now for Pre-Order and you can preview the album and watch the video for his latest single It Will End In Tears here.




Sixx AM - Modern VintageSIXX: A.M., the band featuring Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx alongside guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael, will release its third album, Modern Vintage, on October 7.  Says Sixx: "Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, SIXX: A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics — three core elements that helped to define that era. SIXX: A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on 'Gotta Get It Right' and the rest of 'Modern Vintage', having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again." The album is available now for Pre-Order and you can preview the album and watch the album's making of video in which they discuss the new album and their latest single 'Gotta Get it Right' here.

And In November 1968, George Harrison released 'Wonderwall Music'. A soundtrack to an art film called 'Wonderwall' this predominantly Indian music collection was the first solo album to be released by a Beatle and also the first album on the newly formed Apple Records.

"The goals for Heigh Ho were songs, sonics, and capturing performance," Mills said.

Marco Benevento - Swift Marco Benevento - Swift
New CD: $11.98
Digital: $8.99
Marco Benevento is used to doing things for himself. Since launching his solo career six years ago, Benevento has co-founded the label that releases his music, The Royal Potato Family, and built the studio, Fred Short Sound, where he works whenever he s not on the road. He s written, arranged and played his largely instrumental anthems, leading a band from behind his customized piano and a tiny armada of drum-machines and sequencers, keyboards and pedals. But until Benevento set out to complete his fifth solo album, he d never sung his own songs, a strange omission for music that s so often been lyrical. That changes decisively, assuredly, triumphantly on Swift, the boldest and most bracing album of Benevento s career.

They are foundational to what is now known as country music, and they imparted in Mac Wiseman a love of song that would spur the longest recording career of any American singing star alive in 2014. Wiseman became known as ''the voice with a heart,'' and that heart for music began beating back in Crimora, Virginia as he lifted his mother's hand-written words in melody. The notebooks were gifts from a mother to her son.

Jeffrey Jacob and Angela Gail met in Los Angeles, playing guitar and bass, respectively, in a loud, grungy guitar band, but the seeds of In the Valley Below were planted one night at SXSW, when they realized there was something special in the passion and chemistry they shared on-stage.

Christopher Owens - A New Testament Christopher Owens - A New Testament
New CD: $11.98
Digital: $9.99
On the follow-up to his tender, Baroque-infused debut Lysandre, former Girls frontman Christopher Owens takes a different path with the country-infused A New Testament. Working again with producer Doug Boehm, Owens colors his quirky songwriting style with a mix of pedal steel and a trio of female backing vocalists, exploring his relationship with both country and gospel music. While a heavily themed album may surprise some fans, it's not that big a stretch for the California-based songwriter. Much of his output with Girls had a distinct, old-time Everly Brothers influence and his tumultuous years growing up in the Children of God cult gives him a unique perspective on his gospel, to say the least. As with Lysandre, Owens is at his best on the slower, more contemplative fare, like the wistful waltz "It Comes Back to You" and the laid-back ballad "I Just Can't Live Without You (But I'm Still Alive)." More uptempo tracks like the twangy gospel rave-up "My Troubled Heart" and the honky tonk pop of "Nothing More Than Everything to Me" rely on a surprisingly clean, straightforward production to make their statements on this unusual release.

If you were to give country music an address, you might say it's at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock 'n' roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning. No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God in twenty-three tracks.

Three and a half years after 'Glorious Collision', acclaimed Swedish metallers EVERGREY return with their brand new piece of work 'Hymns For The Broken'.

Englund's unique voice towering above it all. 'Hymns For The Broken' probably is their most atmospheric and intense album so far - and we speak of a band that has released classic albums such as 'In Search For Truth', 'Recreation Day', and 'The Inner Circle'.

New CD: $18.98   $17.98
Leading French clarinetist-composer-improviser Louis Sclavis continues his musical adventures with Gilles Coronado and Benjamin Moussay, who contributed creatively to his Atlas Trio album Sources in 2011. The addition of Iranian classical percussionist Kevyan Chemirani, master of the zarb, has brought a new dimension to their world of sound. Adventurous contemporary music, says Sclavis, can be broad enough to embrace different but complementary traditions. Silk and Salt indicates my desire for this work to take an imaginary, nomadic, Central Asian route, but also to address the idea of emigration in world history. In this case: journeying away from and back to jazz. Travelling melodies and rhythms predominate. The changing contexts inspire some of Sclavis finest clarinet playing, captured by producer Manfred Eicher in this recording, made in Studio La Buissonne, near Avignon, in March 2014.
