New Releases - September 15 2017

 
Foo Fighters - Concrete And Gold - RCA
"I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin's sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that." So speaks Dave Grohl of the mission statement made manifest in Foo Fighters' ninth epic, the aptly-titled Concrete and Gold, out on Roswell Records / RCA Records. Concrete And Gold was written and performed by Foo Fighters, produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and mixed by Darrell Thorp.

SLOTFACE - Try Not To Freak OutSløtface - Try Not To Freak Out - Nettwerk RecordsSLOTFACE - Try Not To Freak Out
On their debut album Try Not To Freak Out Norwegian four-piece Sløtface deliver political punk wrapped in pop packaging. They’ve won over fans and critics alike with their massive hooks, scorching riffs, and sometimes biting, sometimes earnest, yet always relatable lyrics. Sløtface are a young band poised for a break-out year on the back of a fully-formed, tenacious debut. Prior to the album’s release, the band – lead singer Haley Shea, guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad, bassist Lasse Lokøy, and drummer Halvard Skeie Wiencke – are taking on the EU/UK festival circuit with their powerful live show. And they are planning a North American tour in support of the album this fall.

THE TEXAS GENTLEMEN - TX Jelly

THE TEXAS GENTLEMEN - TX JellyTHE TEXAS GENTLEMEN - TX Jelly - New West RecordsTHE TEXAS GENTLEMEN - TX Jelly
The Lone Star-bred collective, The Texas Gentlemen, takes its cues from some of the iconic acts of the past — the quicksilver brilliance of The Wrecking Crew and Bob Dylan’s one-time backers The Band are the most obvious examples. Founding member, Beau Bedford, who shares chief engineering and production responsibilities at Dallas’ Modern Electric Sound Recorders, assembled The Texas Gentlemen as an all-purpose backing band for an eclectic array of singer-songwriters, including Leon Bridges, Nikki Lane, Jonathan Tyler and Paul Cauthen. That deft fusion of what came before with what is right now develops through the members’ unswerving dedication to simply play to the best of their abilities, trusting their instincts, and letting the music guide them. Case in point: TX Jelly was created in less than a week — four days, start to finish — at Muscle Shoals’ singular FAME Studios. Pared down from the 28 songs the Gentlemen recorded in that 96-hour span, TX Jelly effortlessly connects way back to what’s next, summoning the spirits of American songcraft even as it heralds the arrival of 21st century talent. Cut live, with little use for the blinding polish and careful presentation of so much modern music, TX Jelly oozes with skill backed up by that hard-won authenticity. TX Jelly moves between contemplative and raucous, encompassing the full breadth of the American experience. The music touches on blues, soul, folk, country, rock and gospel — from first track to last, you can feel The Texas Gentlemen reaching deep inside themselves and finding what’s genuine — what illuminates the truth of the country’s rich, complicated and singular artistic history — and delivering it the only way they know how: real, raw and righteous.

The Sydney-born siblings produced and largely engineered Snow themselves, in Angus's cottage studio, Belafonte, in the Byron Bay hinterland. “It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us,” says Julia. “The last phase of writing and recording was just eight weeks of him and me and the quiet of the land. It was a beautiful time.” Since they began in 2006, Angus & Julia Stone have amassed multi-platinum sales and numerous ARIA awards at home, and won a fanbase of millions over tours of the UK, Europe & North America.

YUSUF / CAT STEVENS - The Laughing Apple

YUSUF / CAT STEVENS - The Laughing AppleLeon Russell - On A Distant Shore [Indie Exclusive Deluxe Edition] - Palmetto Records
Leon Russell turned 74 years old in 2016. At the time, he’d already logged more than half a century onstage, weaving a legendary path through the worlds of rock & roll, soul, country, blues and classic pop music. He was still active in the recording studio, too, where he spent much of the year working on a new album, On A Distant Shore, during breaks in his busy touring schedule.  Released in September 2017, On a Distant Shore arrives 10 months after Russell’s passing. It’s his final album, offering up a stunning batch of original material — including updated versions of three hits from his older catalog — all influenced by the timeless sounds of the Great American Songbook. These aren’t cover songs. Instead, they’re Russell’s own version of pop and jazz standards, filled with sweeping strings, upright piano, pedal steel, horns, and a voice that retained its powerful, poignant punch until the very end.  This collection of songs will be released in two configurations, a 12 song CD, and an Indie Exclusive Deluxe Edition of 16 songs, including 4 additional songs+lyric booklet.

Enter Shikari - The Spark

Enter Shikari - The SparkEnter Shikari - The Spark - PIAS AmericaEnter Shikari - The Spark
In fifth album The Spark, Rou, Chris Batten (bass), Rob Rolfe (drums) and Rory Clewlow (guitar) have written a soundtrack to our tumultuous world; a record for everyone who’s filled with frustration, but hasn’t lost the capacity for hope. “The spark is a new connection, a new beginning,” says Rou. “It can be short and insignificant, but it can create something so significant. The spark is that light at the end of the tunnel – when everything seems to be falling apart, but you’re able to see some sort of path out of the dark.” Produced by David Kosten (Everything Everything, Bat For Lashes), it’s Enter Shikari's most melodic album, invigorated by the energy they felt as a band after a sold-out 2016 arena tour, and one that will see them break beyond punk to be recognised as a great British band in a lineage spanning The Beatles via Pink Floyd and Joy Division to Blur. “We’re here to disgrace that list or be embraced into that list, I haven’t decided which yet,” Rou grins.

Midland - On The Rocks

Midland - On The RocksMidland - On The Rocks - Big Machine RecordsMidland - On The Rocks
Midland intentionally nods to the wild west with Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, channeling idols Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson, both legends whom they previously opened for on the road. Their 2016 self-titled debut EP was featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and Billboard and their music video earned them their first CMT Music Awards nomination for Group Video of the Year. On The Rocks is Midland's anticipated first full-length release on Big Machine Records.

Otherwise - Sleeping Lions

Otherwise - Sleeping LionsOtherwise - Sleeping Lions - Nettwerk RecordsOtherwise - Sleeping Lions
Otherwise have announced the release of their third, full-length album, Sleeping Lions, set for a Sept. 22 release. The band has been on tour this summer, playing some of the new tracks from the album to live audiences prior to the release. The group believes that the title captures their essence in a way that touts who they are as artists, and how they have evolved. “We named the album Sleeping Lions because that’s what we feel like — we’ve been hibernating in our neon desert cave, licking our wounds and regaining our strength for the hunt,” says Otherwise frontman Adrian Patrick. “Now we’re back on the prowl again, and our eyes are wide open. The album title absolutely references a bigger awareness of who we are and what we’re capable of. The last thing you ever want to do is wake sleeping lions.” The 12-track offering runs an emotional gamut that parallel real life struggles. Among the suggested highlights in the press materials include the blistering “Angry Heart,” the more heartfelt “Blame,” the gut punch of “Bloodline Lullaby,” the chaos of the relationship-based “Monster” and the symphonically emotional “Nothing to Me.”

New Release Round-Up 09-08-17

New Releases - September 08 2017

 
MOGWAI - Every Country's Sun - Temporary Residence
Every Country's Sun takes two decades of Mogwai's signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock, and transcendental euphoria. Produced by psych-rock luminary Dave Fridmann, it's a structural soundscape built from stark foundations up; from a gentle, twinkling, synth-rock spectre to a solid, blown-out, skyward-thrusting obelisk. There's percussive, dream-state electronics (“Coolverine”), church organs as chariots of existential fire (“Brain Sweeties”), tremulous, foreboding bleeping – possibly from a dying android (“AKA 47”). Their most transportive album yet, it also hosts their most fully realized art-pop sing-along of their storied history, “Party In The Dark,” a head-spinning disco-dream double-helix echoing New Order and The Flaming Lips, featuring Braithwaite's seldom-heard melodic vocals declaring he's “directionless and innocent, searching for another piece of mind”. This is music as a keep-out chrysalis, protective audio armor through exalting organs and portentous, dissonant guitar fuzz warping at the edges, bending the world inside-out into a reality in which you’d much rather live. The last three songs ascend into explosive exorcism, closing with the colossal “Every Country’s Sun,” its searching intensity whooshing towards infinity in a dazzling cosmic crescendo.

JACK JOHNSON - All The Light Above It Too

JACK JOHNSON - All The Light Above It TooJACK JOHNSON - All The Light Above It Too - RepublicJACK JOHNSON - All The Light Above It Too
Jack Johnson returns with his 8th album 'All The Light Above It Too' releasing on 9/8. The album is being led by first single 'My Mind Is For Sale' which hit the airwaves in July, followed by a run of North American tour dates. Jack will also embark on a run of dates in the Southeast following album release. The press anticipation on the music is massive with early support from Rolling Stone, NPR, Coastal Living, Surfer, SiriusXM and forthcoming TV bookings around album release.

KIP MOORE - Slowheart

KIP MOORE - SlowheartKIP MOORE - Slowheart - MCA NashvilleKIP MOORE - Slowheart
Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore announces his upcoming third studio album Slowheart, available Sept. 8.  Moore, who was inspired to name the release after his fiercely loyal fans who have adopted the name SLOWHEART themselves and who "defines himself by his honesty, which feeds directly into his music, which earned him a fan base of die-hards and helped make him a breakout star in Nashville,” (Washington Post) gave fans the opportunity to view and share the album cover first via social media. The cover image, taken in Costa Rica during Kip’s extended break earlier this year, speaks to the personal nature of the collection which Rolling Stone praises for its "gut-punch of a vintage album, the vocals out front and clear as crystal." "My former guitar player called me a ‘slowheart’ many years ago, claiming I don't just jump the gun and show all my cards or my emotions on what I truly feel," said Moore. "He always said 'you're a slowheart, man...you observe before you act.' I eventually named the band the slowhearts, and my fans are the slowhearts too. And so, its only fitting that the record I've been waiting to make, was named SLOWHEART."
