Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love

SLEATER-KINNEY - NO CITIES TO LOVE, Sub Pop Records
No Cities to Love
 is the first album in 10 years by Sleater-Kinney (guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein, vocalist/guitarist Corin Tucker, and drummer Janet Weiss), who came crashing out of the '90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk's political insight and emotional impact. Formed in Olympia, WA in 1994, Sleater-Kinney were hailed as "America's best rock band" by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006. No Cities to Love was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator John Goodmanson.

Ryan Bingham - Fear And Saturday Night

Ryan Bingham - Fear And Saturday NightRYAN BINGHAM - FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT - Thirty Tigers
Recorded mostly live with a brand new backing band Fear And Saturday Night shows Ryan Bingham facing down his past with a poetic grace throughout. The lead single Radio is about coping with a darkness that does not want to let go, searching for a safe place to make sense of your life and the strength to stay on the right track through it all. Some of the most affecting moments on the album are in the harmonica-driven wistful waltz Broken Heart Tattoos, a song written to an unborn child, and in the title track, Fear and Saturday Night. Those hard-learned lessons, through both good times and bad, helped make Bingham the man he is today. Fear And Saturday Night is the most authentic, personal, and deeply moving portrait of that man we have heard yet.

UPCOMING RELEASES

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.



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!”
Early Listen Available

New Release Round-Up 01-13-15

New Release Round-Up 01-13-15

A one-night-only concert was held at New York City’s Town Hall last fall, to celebrate the music of the Coen brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis. The evening was filmed for a documentary that was broadcast by Showtime last winter, and now Nonesuch Records releases a live recording of the concert, Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of “Inside Llewyn Davis,” on January 13, 2015. The concert, documentary, and live album were produced by Inside Llewyn Davis writer/director/producers Joel and Ethan Coen and soundtrack producer T Bone Burnett. (Nonesuch also released the film’s soundtrack.) 

Uptown Special is Mark Ronson's most inventive and vibrant work to date. Taken as a whole, the album is inspired by his musical beginnings.  As a teenager growing up in New York City in the early 90s, Ronson gravitated towards hip-hop, funk, soul and R&B. Those were the records he lugged around in boxes in the early days of his club DJ career and that scratchy, inspiring vinyl was what he returned to when creating the album.

Following the success of his critically-acclaimed-fifth-studio-album, Single Mothers, Justin Townes Earle is pleased to announce the release of the companion album, Absent Fathers. Comprised of 10 tracks, Absent Fathers was recorded alongside Single Mothers as a double album, but as Justin began to sequence it, he felt each half needed to make its own statement and they took on their own identities. Single Mothers was released on September 9, 2014 via Vagrant Records. Combined with Absent Fathers, the double album perfectly showcases exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana.

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear. It finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of 2011’s Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again (with the help of Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember), rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.” Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.

Guster - EvermotionEvermotion is Guster’s most vibrant album yet. Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen, Stereolab), the album bulldozes inhibitions, propelling the band to a harder-charging, more freewheeling sound as heard on lead single, Simple Machine. Packed with tight hooks, muscular guitar riffs, clanging percussion and surprisingly dark lyrics, the new album features adventurous turns on slide guitars, brassy trumpets and a glockenspiel, with sax and trombone accompaniment. The album is available now and you can watch the Mini Documentary on the making of the album here.




Plus there are other great, new releases including Jake Miller with his first EP on Warner Bros. Records. Lion Heart is 5 tracks long and features guest appearances from Travie McCoy and Nikki Flores. For Johnny Winter’s Remembrance Volume 1, the sorely missed artist shares a bounty of tunes from his Billboard charting Live Bootleg Series. Title is the debut album from up & coming USA pop singer Meghan Trainor and features the hit single 'All About That Bass'. Electronic Hardcore Music may not be an instantly recognizable genre, but Palisades are making it their mission to change that with the release of their new album album Mind Games. Psychedelic rock band Dr. Dog release their new album Live At A Flamingo Hotel. And The Ting Tings, known for their massive hits That's Not My Name and Shut Up and Let Me Go, among others, release their new album Super Critical. Feeling uninspired, the duo Katie White and Jules De Martin, sought out an adventure in late 2012 which took them to Ibiza. As it turned out, unleashing their party spirit was exactly the impetus and momentum needed to craft something special and true to the starting spirit of their musical adventures. The result is a hook-stuffed, introspective, modern disco record.
