Music Releases 03-15-19

Karen O & Danger Mouse - Lux Prima [LP] Karen O & Danger Mouse - Lux Prima [LP]
New Vinyl: $26.98

Lux Prima is the debut album from Karen O & Danger Mouse

Stephen Malkmus - Groove Denied [LP] Stephen Malkmus - Groove Denied [LP]
New Vinyl: $22.99   $19.99

Following hot on the heels of 2018’s Sparkle Hard comes Groove Denied, the rejected album Stephen has been telling everyone about. Groove Denied was written in Berlin and Oregon between Malkmus’ soundtrack to the Netflix series Flaked and Sparkle Hard. It finds Stephen in a playful, exploratory mode – recorded by himself in Oregon; Malkmus plays bass, organ, drum machines, a Roland 2080 and a Memorymoog alongside other instruments interspersed with loops and vocal effects. His first album as a solo artist since 2001, Groove Denied is a fine companion to Sparkle Hard, echoing the experimentation (Auto-Tune, genre-dabbling) found there.

Named one of The New York Times’ Artists To Watch in 2019 and Billboard’s Hot Country Artists to Watch, Lauren Jenkins mesmerizes crowds with her sultry vocals and authentic songwriting.

New Vinyl: $20.98
Video

British/New Zealand musician, and lead singer and songwriter of The Veils, Finn Andrews reveals his most personal songwriting to date with the release of his first solo material. The resulting songs are some of the most profound and intimate pieces of work Andrews’ has done. Recorded at The Lab in Auckland, and co-produced by Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins), not only do the songs’ subject matter expose more of his life than before, Andrews also admits that their arrangements allowed for less to hide behind, showcasing his voice in a different way.

Todd Snider - Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 [LP] Todd Snider - Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 [LP]
New Vinyl: $19.98

After spending the last six years making rock albums, Todd Snider is going back to folk. Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 was recorded at Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN. Snider wrote the set of songs and played all the instruments on the record, displaying his growth as a musician and vocalist. Of the five songs on which Snider serves up his humorous brand of socio-political commentary, three are performed in the talking blues style. He even had his friends, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires, contribute backing vocals on a few of the tracks. If Snider is anything, he is a true artist, and he reminds us of that on Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3. At a point in time when the world has never been more complicated and confusing, with people getting louder and louder, Snider did a 180, went back to his roots as a folksinger, to a simpler, quieter form of expression; and it might be what the world is waiting to hear; a man, his guitar, and the truth.

Snarky Puppy - Immigrance Snarky Puppy - Immigrance
New CD: $12.98
The Faint - Egowerk [LP] The Faint - Egowerk [LP]
New Vinyl: $19.99

The Faint's long-awaited new album, Egowerk, is set to release on March 15, 2019. Made up of vocalist Todd Fink, drummer Clark Baechle, keyboardist Graham Ulicny, and guitarist and bassist Michael “Dapose” Dappen, the group that ignited an electro-pop-punk movement is back with an 11-track deep-dive into themes on modern society, the internet, and ego - specifically social media and its dark effects. Opener “Child Asleep” echoes well-loved Faint singles from the Danse Macabre days, with rapidfire techno beats that sear so hot, your forehead will break into a sweat regardless of proximity to a dance floor. And though the synths should sound familiar to any Faint follower, the song’s monotone message is at once classic and current: “If I was wise, I would see I’m a child still asleep.” Elaborating further, Todd says, “It would be amazing if I could wake up from the world that I think I'm awake in already. If there’s a better way of understanding life, I'd love to be privy to it. You see the wisdom of all Gurus in the East, and you know they're not bothered by this or that. They've attained something, and the rest of us are just kind of banging into stuff, trying to figure out what to do with our lives.” It’s been four years since The Faint dropped a proper studio album, and more than two decades since they first tore onto the Midwest scene, alongside area staples Cursive and Bright Eyes, with anxious electro-pop-punk anthems that meshed doomsday themes with thudding dance-floor hooks. The group began to construct Egowerk shortly after releasing their 2016 career-spanning record, CAPSULE:1999-2016, with Baechle making frequent trips back to Omaha from his new home in Philadelphia to mix the record. The band made a unanimous decision to self-produce the entire record, making it unique and far more involved than any of their past work. Despite The Faint’s nihilistic musings on Egowerk, Fink and Baechle remain optimistic that things can improve if society is willing to absorb dueling perspectives. “The more you learn about any issue, any issue at all, the more you understand that it's more complicated than you think,” Fink says. “I'd like to see people less convinced that they're right about everything all the time. I guess I think we'll figure it out as time goes on.”

SONTALK - Stay Wild [LP] SONTALK - Stay Wild [LP]
New Vinyl: $30.99   $27.99

Stay Wild, the debut album from SONTALK, follows the personal trials and triumphs of Joseph LeMay, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind SONTALK. By way of familial candor and visceral vulnerability, the twelve tracks comprising SONTALK's full-length debut album Stay Wild, chronicle LeMay's journey of self-reflection, discovery, acceptance and ultimately, growth. In 2016 LeMay met producer Jeremy Lutito (Chuck Berry, Colony House, Erin McCarley) and together they brought the vision of SONTALK to life recording Stay Wild along with engineer Logan Matheny at Big Light Studio in Nashville. LeMay imbues Stay Wild with moments of triumph and despair, tossing and turning between emotional extremes to create an openly honest dialogue with himself and listeners. The album is an expansion of the emotional terrain covered in his introductory EP, SONTALK: Act I, released last April. On Act I, the lead single (included on Stay Wild) "I Am A War Machine," through jagged textures and frenetic rhythms, LeMay invokes a voice on the verge of mental unraveling realizing his own volatility and gaining awareness. The lead offering from Stay Wild, "Baby, I m Gone" fuses a stark and soulful vocal to sinewy acoustic guitar and a glitchy beat, with LeMay's haunting voice echoing with powerful passion and plaintive poetry. I Am A Mountain follows the October release of "Baby, I'm Gone" and serves as a dynamic apex and bookend to the first half of Stay Wild. With a loping pace and persistent driving beat, it illustrates the tired longing of the narrator, building to a heartbreaking crescendo that mimics the fallout of a failing relationship. Elsewhere the album is grounded by LeMay's powerful vocals and a delicate dissonance of multifarious sonic textures that range from distorted slide guitar transmissions, sequenced beats, vinyl samples and warm electronics. The result is a deeply emotional journey into LeMay's life, offering a therapeutic and universal wisdom meant to be shared for a long time to come.

Steve Perry - Traces [Deluxe 2LP] Steve Perry - Traces [Deluxe 2LP]
New Vinyl: $34.98

2 180g black vinyl LPs featuring 5 bonus songs (15 tracks).

This DELUXE package features 5 bonus songs from legendary singer-songwriter and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Perry. The famed singer introduces Traces with lead track 'No Erasin'' and reassuringly greets fans with the opening line 'I know it's been a long time comin'.' The track is an emotional homecoming, a familiar welcome from the iconic voice and writer of Journey's timeless, global hits including 'Don't Stop Believin',' 'Faithfully,' and 'Open Arms,' as well as the significant solo success of 'Oh Sherrie' and 'Foolish Heart.' Perry says, 'Putting 30 years into 10 songs has certainly been an emotional experience for me. I started writing and recording these songs with the creative freedom that I was the only one who would ever hear them. Along the way, I rediscovered my love for music. Each track represents traces of my past, but is also a hopeful look into the future. I invite you to listen with an open heart.' Produced by Perry alongside co-producer Thom Flowers, Traces is the artist's most vulnerable and honest recording to date, balancing tremendous loss with enduring hope and beauty. The album is a collection of nine original tracks that encompass the spectrum of human emotion, and also features a beautifully reimagined cover of The Beatles' 'I Need You.' It is the work of an artist who has reconnected with his music in a new way.

Fallujah - Undying Light [Orange / Beige Swirl LP] Fallujah - Undying Light [Orange / Beige Swirl LP]
New Vinyl: $22.98

California progressive death metallers Fallujah are swinging upward and venturing outward on new album, Undying Light. With new vocalist in Antonio Palermo (also of Underling fame) firmly in position and a no-filler, all-killer songwriting attack, Undying Light isn’t the follow-up to Dreamless, it’s a massive jump forward. Whereas Dreamless wandered intelligently and resonated lithely, new tracks such as “Glass House,” “Ultraviolet,” “Eyes Like the Sun,” and closer “Departure” find Fallujah stripped down, razor-sharp, and emotionally charged.

Mary Poppins [Movie] - Mary Poppins Returns: The Songs [LP Soundtrack] Mary Poppins [Movie] - Mary Poppins Returns: The Songs [LP Soundtrack]
New Vinyl: $19.98

In Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns," an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt ("A Quiet Place," "The Girl on the Train") stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and LinManuel Miranda ("Hamilton," "Moana") plays her friend Jack.

Rasputin's Stash - Make Up Your Mind / You Are My Everything [Vinyl Single] Rasputin's Stash - Make Up Your Mind / You Are My Everything [Vinyl Single]
New Vinyl: $11.98

Rescued from a haze of drugs, alcohol and questionable women comes a potent blend of heavy Chicago Funk, Modern Soul & Psychedelia. Influential recordings from the group's sought-after Funk classics have been sampled by Beck, The Chemical Brothers, Jim Jones, Raekwon & Leaders of The New School. Previously unreleased Rasputin's Stash from the forthcoming Stash album due out in April. 'Make Up Your Mind' is a contagious rhythm with Jimi Hendrix-style fuzzed out guitar riffs echoing sweet soul vocals and a brass section tight enough to please any Tower of Power fan. On the b-side is a slow-jam Soul-Steppers classic 'You Are My Everything' Cut directly to vinyl from the recently found master tapes, this music presents material from the band at their artistic peak and the last recordings before Rasputin's Stash members went on to record Crystal Winds First Flight and Attitude, Belief & Determination
