    Thee Oh Sees - Smote Reverser-Castleface
    Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy album of head-destroying psych-epics to grok and rock out to. Notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of Memory Of A Cut Off Head-alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas, while the Paul Quattrone/Dan Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there's a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer's made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning it's flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman!

    The Devil Makes Three - Chains Are Broken

    The Devil Makes Three - Chains Are BrokenThe Devil Makes Three - Chains Are BrokenThe Devil Makes Three - Chains Are Broken- New WestRecords
    The power of words isnt lost on longstanding Americana triumvirate The Devil Makes ThreePete Bernhard, Lucia Turino, and Cooper McBean. For as much as they remain rooted in troubadour traditions of wandering folk, Delta blues, whiskey-soaked ragtime, and reckless rock n roll, the band nods to the revolutionary unrest of author James Baldwin, the no-holds barred disillusionment of Ernest Hemingway, and Southern Gothic malaise of Flannery OConnor.In that respect, their sixth full-length and first of original material since 2013, Chains Are Broken, resembles a dusty leather-bound book of short stories from some bygone era. As the band began writing ideas for Chains Are Broken, they veered off the proverbial path creatively. Instead of their typical revolving cast of collaborators, The Devil Makes Three stuck to its signature power trio, with one addition. This time, they invited touring drummer Stefan Amidon to power the bulk of the percussion.Another first, they retreated to Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, TX a stones throw from the Mexican border to record with producer Ted Hutt [Dropkick Murphys].The incorporation of new sounds as well as the experimentation in space finds the Devil Makes Three crafting a new yet still familiar sound. Coupled with a continued focus on in-depth lyricism that tells a story in every song, Chains Are Broken is a liberating, rump-shaking collection of past, present and future.

    New Releases 10 August 2018


    Death Grips - Year of the Snitch- Harvest
    Year of the Snitch is the sixth studio album by experimental hip hop group Death Grips, released this weekthrough Third Worlds and Harvest Records. LP and Indie Exclusive Clear LP to follow next month.

    Jason Mraz - Know.-Atlantic
    The album serves as a follow-up to the 2014 LP "YES!", and is Jason Mraz's first full-length studio recording in over four years.The bulk of the album was written against the backdrop of the 2016 Presidential election and its aftermath, and Mraz found himself writing a lot of "frustrated, angry, even sad songs, but nothing I wanted to sing." Instead he has chosen to convey an uplifting, positive message. Know.was produced by Andrew Wells, who brings an organic and groovy feel to the album's classic, acoustic rock sound.

    Shooter Jennings - Shooter-Low Country Sound
    Ever the outlaw, Shooter Jennings has now crafted what might well be his most truly idiosyncratic work thus far, Shooter. Produced by longtime friend and collaborator, Low Country Sound founder Dave Cobb, at the renowned RCA Studio A on Nashville's Music Row, the album sees Jennings staking out a fairly straightforward goal: to simply make a great country record. It should be noted, Jennings' last studio album was a genuinely visionary tribute to Giorgio Moroder so in some ways, making a straight up country record is as much of a left turn as anything else in his brilliantly mercurial career thus far. But with songs like "Fast Horses & Good Hideouts" or the raucous "I'm Wild & My Woman Is Crazy," Jennings more than affirms his mission by returning to country's original, if oft misplaced, mandate: singing songs about growing up and getting older, about going out and getting trashed. In short, making music for real people with real lives. With SHOOTER, Jennings truly puts his own mark on country music, living up to his extraordinary birthright with unparalleled passion, experience, and heart.

    The Magpie Salute - High Water I- EagleRecords
    High Water I is the first album of original material from The Magpie Salute. The album, pressed on 2LP, is limited to 1,000 copies pressed on blue and white splattered vinyl. These colors will not be used on future pressings of High Water I.This is the story of The Magpie Salute. As much as the group represents a musical union of swaggering rock n roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling, it also marks a reunion of musicians whose paths twisted and turned right back to each other. Pulled together by guitarist Rich Robinson, it continued a storyline he began in the Black Crowes with guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien. Meanwhile, vocalist John Hogg shared Hookah Brown with Robinson as keyboardist Matt Slocum and drummer Joe Magistro both joined him for solo records and tours over the years.

    Jake Shears - Jake Shears-Freida Jean Records
    Showcasing the essence of what Jake Shears does best, the eponymously titled solo debut from the Scissor Sisters frontman is an album brimming with anthemic choruses and lyrics about the joys and vagaries of love and sex - all of it underpinned by a swampy soul influence imparted from his newly adopted hometown New Orleans. Shears' artistic vision blossomed in the epicenter of Southern decadence, where he had headed following the Scissors hiatus in 2012. Initial ideas for the album were mapped out at the city's famed Marigny Studios before he decamped to Louisville, KY to work with producer Kevin Ratterman (Ray LaMontagne, My Morning Jacket) who recruited members of My Morning Jacket, VHS or Beta, Jim James' solo band, and Floating Action to lay down the album's foundation. With string and brass arrangements by Christian Hebel (Barbra Streisand) and Lance Horne (Alan Cumming), they returned to NOLA to capture the city's signature sound with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Sturgill Simpson's brass section. The result is a thrilling work that plays inside some of the hallmarks of classic American rock music and marries them with Jake's inimitable point of view, humor, and gift for unforgettable hooks.

Ariana Grande - Sweetener

Ariana Grande - Sweetener

New CD: $13.99
Video

Sweetener is the fourth album from Ariana Grande, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi platinum, record-breaking superstar that has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. The album features the number 1 smash 'no tears left to cry,' as well as 'the light is coming (feat. Nicki Minaj)' and 'God is a woman.' With the release of 'no tears left to cry,' she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut in the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. By the age of 24, Ariana Grande delivered three platinum-selling albums in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Since making her full-length debut with 2013's Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash 'The Way'), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Her 2014 sophomore effort My Everything garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits 'Problem' and 'Bang Bang' (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of 2016's Dangerous Woman and wrapped up her widely lauded 'Dangerous Woman Tour' in support of the album in 2017, performing 85 arena shows worldwide. Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize). She has also graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue.

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy album of head-destroying psych-epics to grok and rock out to. Notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of Memory Of A Cut Off Head-alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas, while the Paul Quattrone/Dan Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts.

Mitski - Be The Cowboy [LP]

Mitski - Be The Cowboy [LP]

New Vinyl: $21.98

The breakout success of 2016s Puberty 2 saw Mitski hailed as the new vanguard of indie rock, the one to save the genre from the white dudes whove historically dominated it. But the often overlooked aspect of being a rising star is the sheer amount of work that goes into it. I had been on the road for a long time, which is so isolating, and had to run my own business at the same time, Mitski explains, a lot of this record was me not having any feelings, being completely spent, but then trying to rally myself and wake up and get back to Mitski. I was feeling really nihilistic and trying to make pop songs. We want our artists to be strong but we also expect them to be vulnerable. Rather than avoiding this dilemma, she addresses directly the power that comes from appearing impenetrable and loneliness that follows. With a lot of the romantic infatuations Ive had, she says, when I look back, I wonder, Did I want them or did I want to be them? Did I love them or did I want to absorb whatever power they had? I decided I could just be my own cowboy gure that I so desire. In Be The Cowboy, Mitski delves into the loneliness of being a symbol and the loneliness of being someone, and how it can feel so much like being no one.

Circles Around The Sun - Let It Wander [2LP]

Circles Around The Sun - Let It Wander [2LP]

New Vinyl: $39.98

LET IT WANDER signals a new beginning for the band as they move beyond their original musical mandate of evoking the spirit of the Dead and fully embrace their own personality. More than anything, what you hear on this album is a band growing into its own sound, Casal says.

--
The songs on LET IT WANDER are focused and filled with imaginative musical turns. Horne and Levy form a veritable groove machine that knows intuitively when to tighten up and when to stretch out. They expand and collapse the rhythmic pocket around Casal and MacDougall, who pass melodies back and forth in an elaborate game of musical tag as they take turns adding color and shade from a seemingly endless kaleidoscope of cosmic sounds.
