    Frank Turner - No Man's Land - UME
    In Frank Turner’s latest release, No Man's Land, he masterfully hones his song-writing skills into 13 new songs, each telling the story of real women from history whose lives have not been widely documented. From Jinny Bingham, "The Shrew of Kentish Town," to Dora Hand, the American vaudeville singer, each song is fascinating, moving, funny, and most of all, worth sharing and celebrating. Produced by Catherine J Marks and recorded with an all-female ensemble.

    Seratones - POWER

    Seratones - POWERSeratones - POWERSeratones - POWER - New West Records
    Seratones aptly named sophomore release POWER is described by poet and author Hannif Abdurraquib as a glorious, swelling album[a] sonic monument, and precise lyrical tapestry. AJ Haynes bends her gloriously malleable voice seamlessly around the temples of rock, and soul, and funk. All of them, unfurling in waves of keys, staccato percussion and wailing curves of guitar. Based in Shreveport, Louisiana, Haynes and founding members, drummer Jesse Gabriel and bassist Adam Davis, form the kind of laser-focused rhythm section that you only get from bandmates who've been playing together since they were teenagers. New members Tyran Coker (keys) and Travis Stewart (guitar) bring a fresh dynamic to the band with interstellar soundscapes and entrancing melodies, all while maintaining the emotional edge and intensity from their acclaimed proto-punk debut record Get Gone. POWER exemplifies a true strength in vulnerability, a kaleidoscopic view into Haynes passions, hopes, and worries: from her love of poetry to her advocacy for Reproductive Justice and racial equity. Hard-learned lessons from lovers and intimate friends. The struggles to adapt and overcome. POWER is as much a statement as it is a question, a semiotic exploration of sound and Soul.

    Tanya Tucker - While I'm Livin - FANTASY
    Produced by Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings, While I'm Livin’ is Tanya Tucker’s first album of all new music in 17 years and signals the return of this country music icon. "While I'm Livin'" is an album of mostly original music written by Brandi Carlile, the twins and Tanya Tucker about her real life and the places she's seen. This album is a musical biography of sorts narrated by the greatest country and western singer this side of Johnny Cash. When the kids heard Cash stripped down on "American Recordings" they knew where their outlaw country music came from. When they hear Tanya stripped down on "While I'm Livin'", they'll know it again.

    Vince Gill - Okie

    Vince Gill - OkieVince Gill - OkieVince Gill - Okie - MCA Nashville
    GRAMMY Award-winning MCA Nashville country star Vince Gill wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs on Okie. The album's title is taken from the once-derogatory term used to disparage migrants from Oklahoma to the nation's west coast during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression eras. A proud Oklahoman, Gill has appropriated this term on an album that embraces his roots and explores some of the most important issues of our time. I thought this was going to be a songwriter record, not a concept album, Gill says. It wound up being more information than I'd envisioned. A friend sent me an email saying, You could have only written this record after living a 60-year-plus life. He said, There's no struggle in these songs, just truth and your experience. Okie marks Gill's most recent solo album since 2016's Down To My Last Bad Habit and 2011's Guitar Slinger. In 2013, Gill partnered with famed steel guitarist Paul Franklin on Bakersfield as a tribute to the Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. With 21 GRAMMY Awards to his credit. Gill has solidified his place as country music's most eloquent and impassioned champion. He is both a world-class musician and a wide-ranging songwriter whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. Gill has also made appearances on over 1000 artists records. In 2017, Gill was invited to join the Eagles for their worldwide tour, and later this month he will again join the band for the European leg of their upcoming tour with stops in Antwerp, Belgium, Cologne, Germany and Amsterdam.

    Oklahoma! 2019 Broadway Cast RecordingOklahoma! 2019 Broadway Cast RecordingOklahoma! 2019 Broadway Cast Recording - Decca
    Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is Oklahoma! as you’ve never heard it before and reimagined for the 21st century. Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider, and the violence of the frontier that shaped America. Funny and sexy, dark and terrifying, “this is the OKLAHOMA! that was there all along” (New York Magazine).

    UPCOMING RELEASES

    Bon Iver - i,i

    Bon Iver - i,iBon Iver - i,iBon Iver - i,i - Jagjaguwar
    i,i is Bon Iver's most expansive, joyful and generous album to date. If 'For Emma, Forever Ago was the crisp, heart-strung isolation of a northern Winter; Bon Iver the rise and whirr of burgeoning Spring; and '22, A Million', a blistering, crazy energy Summer record, i,i completes the cycle: a fall record; Autumn-colored, ruminative, steeped. The autumn of Bon Iver is a celebration of self acceptance and gratitude, bolstered by community and delivering the bounty of an infinite American music. The sales and accolades are well-known multiple Gold albums, multiple Grammys, chart-topping collaborations and festival headlines. But even more significantly, with each release Bon Iver quietly shifts the state of modern music. From the boundaries of folk, to the rules of autotune, to production work for others, Bon Iver s fingerprint finds its way across the mainstream every time. Vernon has always been a master collaborator, and on i,i that desire becomes maximal, with guests ranging from Moses Sumney and Bruce Hornsby to Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Here, the music and band, and themes, and creative space are bigger than ever.

    Olivia Jean - Night Owl

    Olivia Jean - Night OwlOlivia Jean - Night OwlOlivia Jean - Night Owl - Third Man Records
    Olivia Jean is back on the beat with her second full-length (and first self-produced) album, Night Owl, due out August 30, 2019 on Third Man Records. The album mines the shared spaces between bubblegum, beach pop undercurrents and fuzzed out garage a la B-52s and Dick Dale, lyrically diving headfirst into the frustrations of perfectionism, mental barriers, obsession and modern heartache. Unlike Bathtub Love Killings on which we found Olivia playing every instrument on the vast majority of the album, Night Owl is decidedly more collaborative, with a studio band of buddies backing up her up.  Night Owl is exactly what it sounds like: the wee-hour workings of an artist engrossed in a project, pushing against omnipresent forces of fear and judgment to do exactly what you’ve always wanted to do and be exactly what you’ve known you are. It's candy-coated and also bittersweet, fully aware and also full-hearted.

    New Releases 16 August 2019
     

    Sleater-Kinney - The Center Won't Hold - MOM & POP MUSIC
    “How does brokenness walk? Or move through the world?” says guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein about The Center Won't Hold, Sleater-Kinney’s tenth studio album. “We’re always mixing the personal and the political but on this record, despite obviously thinking so much about politics, we were really thinking about the person – ourselves or versions of ourselves or iterations of depression or loneliness – in the middle of the chaos.” The Center Won’t Hold is Sleater-Kinney’s midnight record on the doomsday clock. After twenty-five years of legendary collaboration, rock’n’roll giants Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss rise to meet the moment by digging deeper and sounding bigger than we’ve heard them yet. Here are intimate battle cries. Here are shattered songs for the shattered survivors. The Center Won’t Hold drops you into the world of catastrophe that touches on the election,” says guitarist/vocalist Tucker of the title track. “We’re not taking it easy on the audience. That song is meant to be really heavy and dark. And almost like a mission statement, at the end of that song, it’s like we’re finding our way out of that space by becoming a rock band.

    Ride - This Is Not A Safe Place

    Ride - This Is Not A Safe PlaceRide - This Is Not A Safe PlaceRide - This Is Not A Safe Place - Wichita Records
    Ride return with the 6th studio album of their career and their second since reforming in 2015 and signing to Wichita. As with their previous album, the highly acclaimed Weather Diaries, Erol Alkan was in the producers chair, whilst career-long collaborator Alan Moulder (with Caesar Edmunds) mixed the album. The albums title was inspired by one of the hobo code symbols once used by those who travelled the railroads of the US, and then found in the early artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The phrase clearly resonates with the current state of the world politically and environmentally. This Is Not A Safe Place is arguably the Ride album with the broadest sonic palette thus far. You can hear sounds and styles that span their entire catalogue but, both musically and lyrically, this is clearly an album made by a band who love being back together and who are at the very top of their game.

    Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors - DragonsDrew Holcomb & The Neighbors - DragonsDrew Holcomb & The Neighbors - Dragons - MAGNOLIA MUSIC
    Over the last decade, Drew Holcomb has established himself as one of Americana s freshest upstarts, building his following and critical appeal with every release, show, and entrepreneurial undertaking (like his curated Moon River Music Festival and Magnolia Record Club).

Produced by Cason Cooley (Ingrid Michelson, American Authors) Dragons features collaborations with Lori McKenna, Natalie Hemby, Sean McConnell, and Zach Williams of The Lone Bellow.

    King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Infest The Rats' Nest - ATO RECORDS
    King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are back with their 2nd album release of 2019, entitled Infest The Rats' Nest. In complete contrast to the laid back, feel good vibes of Fishing for FishiesInfest the Rats Nest is a full on thrash metal inspired assault and one of the most complex records the band has made in their extensive discography, their 15th album and counting! All album details below and attached along with the videos for the first three single releases “Planet B”, “Self Immolate” and “Organ Farmer”.  In the words of Stu Mackenzie from the band: “In year 4 there was an older kid who was into Rammstein. I made friends with him and we put together a performance at our school assembly where we headbanged to ‘Du Hast.’ I got whiplash, which I thought was pretty cool. That was my introduction to heavy metal, and soon Rammstein led to Metallica, Metallica led to Slayer, Slayer led to Kreator and Sodom. The German bands really kicked my ass and scared the hell out of me too. Later on, when I picked up a guitar I realised that shit was too hard to play, so I got into rock ‘n’ roll and garage. That was liberating.”

James Goodwin. Formed in 2003, The Hold Steady have released six albums, numerous singles and played over 1000 shows during the past 16 years. The Brooklyn-based band, by way of the Midwest, has performed in all 50 states in the USA, and throughout Canada, the UK, Europe and Australia. The Hold Steady began releasing two-song singles in November 2017 ahead of the sold-out weekend shows they do in select cities each year and have released five new singles (nine songs total) thru March 2019. The band will launch "Constructive Summer 2019" in August + September four weekends of US shows in Seattle, Chicago, Nashville and Boston. Craig Finn: "I've been saying for a few years now - since Franz came back- that this six piece lineup of The Hold Steady is the best band we've ever been. The new songs recorded by this version of the band are super exciting to us. It's been a very fun and creative period for The Hold Steady.¯

While 2015’s Edge of the Sun brought the Tucson-bred band to the Mexico City borough of Coyoacán, their new full-length The Thread That Keeps Us mostly came to life in a house studio near the Northern California coast nicknamed “The Phantom Ship” by CALEXICO vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino.

In 2013, Gill partnered with famed steel guitarist Paul Franklin on Bakersfield as a tribute to the Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. With 21 GRAMMY Awards to his credit. Gill has solidified his place as country music's most eloquent and impassioned champion. He is both a world-class musician and a wide-ranging songwriter whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. Gill has also made appearances on over 1000 artists records. In 2017, Gill was invited to join the Eagles for their worldwide tour, and later this month he will again join the band for the European leg of their upcoming tour with stops in Antwerp, Belgium, Cologne, Germany and Amsterdam.

The Rubinoos - From Home [First Pressing Black/Yellow Splatter LP]

The Rubinoos - From Home [First Pressing Black/Yellow Splatter LP]

New Vinyl: $22.98

Power pop legends The Rubinoos are known for turning bubblegum into gold with ridiculously catchy tunes like I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, their cover of Tommy James & The Shondells' I Think We're Alone Now, and the theme song to Revenge of the Nerds. They were the backing band when Jonathan Richman recorded the alternate version of Roadrunner and they opened 56 shows for Elvis Costello on his Armed Forces tour. But what's most impressive is that The Rubinoos are approaching their 50th anniversary and penning some of their finest songs to date. From Home is a homecoming recording of sorts. It reunites the original lineup of the band and was recorded in the same studio where they recorded their first single for Beserkley Records nearly half a century ago. The album was co-written and produced by Chuck Prophet, and right from the opening of the lead track Do You Remember, you'll realize that The Rubinoos never left and are here to take you back to Berkeley with them. The first pressing of From Home arrives on limited edition black and yellow splatter vinyl!

Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is OKLAHOMA! as you’ve never heard it before and reimagined for the 21st century. Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider, and the violence of the frontier that shaped America. Funny and sexy, dark and terrifying, “this is the OKLAHOMA! that was there all along” (New York Magazine).

Musically, it's guitars, bass, and drums topped with a generous portion of sweet vocal melodies often delivered with an ambiguous edge.

Michael Cleveland - Tall Fiddler

Michael Cleveland - Tall Fiddler

New CD: $16.99

"It's obvious he was destined to become one of Bluegrass's contemporary stars." -Boston Globe "Michael Cleveland is as versatile as they come, but when it comes to straight-up bluegrass, whether it's a 'bootstomper' or a high and lonesome lament, his peers are few and far between" -All Music Guide "He takes no prisoners but he plays with a restraint and a soul. He plays without abandon." -Vince Gill Featuring Special Guests: Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tommy Emmanuel, Béla Fleck, Del McCoury, Tim O'Brien, the Travelin' McCourys, and Dan Tyminski "Untouchable." That's how Vince Gill describes the playing of bluegrass fiddler Michael Cleveland in the inspiring documentary about the GRAMMY-nominated musician's life, Flamekeeper: The Michael Cleveland Story. On his new album TALL FIDDLER, Cleveland lives up to Gill's lofty praise, showing off the verve, dexterity and intensity that have made him one of the most transfixing performers today - of any genre. It's that crossover appeal that distinguishes TALL FIDDLER, a record that blends string-music with country, jam-grass with folk, and is geared to introduce Cleveland-who, as he talks about in the Flamekeeper film, overcame partial deafness and being born blind-to a wider audience. Yes, bluegrass may be the Indiana native's first love, but on this album, Cleveland rocks. His masterful playing attracts an all-star roster of guests on TALL FIDDLER. No less than Del McCoury, a pillar of bluegrass, appears on the album, singing "Beauty of My Dreams" (Cleveland's favorite Del song) with Flamekeeper vocalist Josh Richards. Elsewhere, Dan Tyminski harmonizes with Richards on the chugging "Son of a Ramblin' Man" and the gorgeous "Mountain Heartache," also featuring Jerry Douglas on Dobro. Tim O'Brien and make appearances too, helping flesh out an album that, while a collaborative effort, is guided by the gifts of Michael Cleveland. It can also be tempting to sum up his playing as effortless. But that'd be selling the musician short. His journey to a GRAMMY-nomination and a record-setting 11 wins as Fiddle Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association, among other IBMA honors, only came through hard work and indomitable spirit.

Raphael Saadiq - Jimmy Lee [LP]

Raphael Saadiq - Jimmy Lee [LP]

New Vinyl: $26.98

Jimmy Lee is the new album from Raphael Saadiq, the Grammy Award- winning musician, songwriter and go-to collaborator/producer Raphael Saadiq. This collection is Raphael's first new album in eight years, and is the follow-up to 2011's Stone Rollin.' The album was announced in June, 2019 with the release of the single Something Keeps Calling Me." Jimmy Lee is a deeply personal, musically ambitious work inspired by his brother's struggles with addiction that explores the razor s edge people walk as they pursue pleasure that leads to pain a brilliantly incisive and empathetic work from a master at the peak of his art. The album takes the listener from Saadiq's native Oakland to Rikers Island as he traces the everyday struggles of addiction and incarceration, taking in both the thrills and pitfalls he witnessed throughout his brother's life. Comprising narcotic funk, steely gospel affirmations, and quaking protest soul, Jimmy Lee is a resonant examination of modern life, in all its exuberance, destruction and consequence. Jimmy Lee was self-produced by Raphael Saadiq and recorded at Blakeslee Recording Co. in North Hollywood. The album features contributions from Brook D Leau, Kendrick Lamar, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. Raphael Saadiq came up in the 80s and 90s with the multi-platinum R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! before embarking on a critically acclaimed solo career. He also has been active as a producer, co-writing career-defining hits for D'Angelo ("Untitled (How Does It Feel) ) and Solange ("Cranes in the Sky") and working with artists like John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder.

Lina Tullgren - Free Cell [LP]

Lina Tullgren - Free Cell [LP]

New Vinyl: $19.98

Mainly recorded and produced at Brooklyn's Figure 8 Studios, with Ty Ueda later assisting on final tracking at his Mount Misery studio, Lina Tullgren's Free Cell is masterfully con dent. Some rock elements like nonlinear song structures and syncopated rhythms bleed over from the debut album Won era on tracks like "110717," but the album offers a wider musical palette than it's predecessor, with lush arrangements utilizing strings, brass and sculpted synths throughout. "Golden Babyland" abounds in tension and claustrophobia, finding Tullgren alone and "in the kitchen melting Legos," while the elegant and introspective ballad "Bad at Parties" scores a moment of quiet social paralysis. The strings (arranged by Simon Hanes) that carry through Free Cell echo back to Tullgren's education as a classical violinist, and Lina moves deftly between these various soundscapes, resulting in their most dynamic music to date. Throughout Free Cell, Tullgren looks back on their memories from the position of an analyst, often cool and cynical but always with an undercurrent of humor and deep feeling. In their poetry Lina Tullgren writes anthems for the alienated, for those alone on busses, at parties, at their parents' house, for those who cannot help but feel lonely even if they are surrounded by others. Free Cell invites us to sit and listen, to reflect, but with no guarantee of any of those things being easy.

New Vinyl: $24.99

When it was time to make Jay Som’s second album, Duterte relocated from her hometown roots in California’s Bay Area to Los Angeles and started writing. The result, Anak Ko, is some of Duterte’s strongest work to date. Translating to “my child” in English, Anak Ko, features sweeping, shoegazey guitars (“Superbike”), delicate string & pedal steel arrangements (“Nighttime Drive,” “Get Well”), and incredible production that showcases Duterte’s evolving skills in the studio (“Anak Ko”). Anak Ko presents an exciting glimpse into Duterte’s creative process and solidifies her undeniable progression as one of 2019's strongest and gifted songwriters.

The Rembrandts - Via Satellite [LP]

The Rembrandts - Via Satellite [LP]

New Vinyl: $19.98

Let's get this out of the way first: The Rembrandts the pop-rock duo of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Phil Solem and Danny Wilde co-wrote and performed the effervescent Friends theme song, "I'll Be There For You." That song, with its inimitable handclaps and jangly guitar riffs, spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart and continues to find new audiences thanks to Friends reruns. However, for Solem and Wilde, that song is just one small chapter in a friendship and creative relationship spanning four decades, two bands, five studio albums, two greatest hits records, a handful of U.S. radio hits, and two U.S. Top 40 singles. "Via Satellite" is the first Rembrandts studio album in 18 years. The meticulous, guitar-driven songs explore every nook and cranny of the pop continuum. "How Far Would You Go" is jangly rock singed lightly with '60s psychedelic atmosphere; "Broken Toy" hews toward dizzying power-pop with hollering vocals awash in emotional grit; and "Come to Californ-i-ya"" is electrified roadhouse blues-rock burnished by glam-soul detailing. Anchoring these songs are Solem and Wilde's harmonies, which are imploring and tender on the twangy "Count On You"; Beatles-esque on the jaunty "Me And Fate"; and graceful spirals on the chiming mid-tempo ballad "Now."

After Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's marathon ''Rising Tour'' came to an end in 2003, Clarence Clemons felt like he needed a break. So he packed up his saxophone and voyaged to China, where he could be more-or-less a nameless traveler in a foreign land.

Featuring interviews with President Bill Clinton, Joe Walsh, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons, former bandmates, friends, and close family members, ''WHO DO I THINK I AM'' highlights Clarence's life as musician and member of the E Street band while also presenting another side of Clarence not many saw when he was away from bright stage lights. It's an intimate portrait of a man who searched for enlightenment and meaning at the unknowingly final years of his life.
