What's New 7-19-24

Role Model
Interscope

Role Model's sophomore album is inspired by homesickness, heartbreak, and the process of redefining oneself. It’s a folk-tinged, lyric driven album featuring 13 new songs including "Oh Gemini" and "Deeply Still in Love." And though some of the tracks do have darker themes, you can still find a balance of nostalgic, summery vibes.

The Dip
Dualtone Music Group

Smooth keyboard washes, subtly propulsive rhythms, and restrained guitar provide a lush backdrop for the band’s signature vocal collages as their sixth full-length, But I’ll Wait For You, evokes the sounds of a broken heart, trying to cling on to the tiniest glimmer of hope that a relationship can still be salvaged.

Cigarettes After Sex
Partisan Records

With the release of their third album, X’s, Cigarettes After Sex finally takes center stage as not just one of today’s preeminent indie bands, but as one of the most globally accomplished acts across any genre. Filled with raw, imagistic, sometimes smutty vignettes set to entrancing, slow burn pop songs, bandleader Greg Gonzalez captures every emotion a romantic arc inspires.

Color Green
New West

On the Color Green’s second full-length—their first as a quartet—they ground their cosmic jams in earthy melodies, drawing from ‘60s SoCal folk-r0ck, ‘70s classic rock, ‘80s underground rock, ‘90s psychedelic dance-rock, and many other sources. It’s a meditation on loss, grief, confusion, frustration, and the clarity to which they all lead.

Louis Armstrong
Verve

Louis Armstrong traveled to England to celebrate this unexpected hit, “What A Wonderful World”, and gave his last great performance, which found him looking back at his entire musical career. That performance, recorded at BBC studios, was miraculously captured in high fidelity audio and video, and is now being released for the first time.

Bones Owens
Thirty Tigers

On sophomore album, revered Nashville troubadour Bones Owens continues to evolve his cultured rock songwriting while capturing the energy of his renowned live shows. Love Out of Lemons collects deeply grooving snapshots of carefree times and top-down drives with subtleties that linger long after the party’s over.

Travis
BMG

Glasgow’s songwriting giants Travis return with their tenth studio album. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Air, Beck, Phoenix), L.A. Times was written by Fran Healy in his studio on the edge of Skid Row, Los Angeles, the city he has called home for the last decade. He describes L.A. Times as Travis’ “most personal album since The Man Who”.

OneRepublic
Interscope

Sixth studio album from Grammy nominated OneRepublic. The album features breakout Platinum single "I Ain't Worried" which was synced to Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, breaking single "I Don't Wanna Wait (w/ David Guetta), and much-loved hits “West Coast”, “Sunshine”, and more.

Cannonball Adderley - Somethin' Else - Blue Note Records

Is that what you wanted, Alfred we hear in Miles Davis unmistakable rasp at the end of One for Daddy-O, making it clear that the legendary trumpeter was not just playing the role of sideman on Somethin' Else. The alto saxophonist was a member of Davis' band at the time, and the depth of their musical camaraderie lifts this session up to rarefied heights throughout. Pianist Hank Jones, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Art Blakey round out the quintet on this timeless classic. Indie Exclusive LP on 180g blue vinyl. Limited Edition.

OneRepublic - Artificial Paradise

Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder - Blue Note Records

Released in 1964, Lee Morgan's magnum opus, The Sidewinder, was both a comeback and a coronation. The prodigious trumpeter debuted on Blue Note in 1956 at the age of 18, but personal problems in the early '60s forced him off the scene. His rebound turned out to be The Sidewinder, featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Billy Higgins. The album became his most significant commercial success, fueled by the irrepressible title track. Indie Exclusive LP on 180g blue vinyl. Limited Edition.

Wayne Shorter - Odyssey Of Iska (Blue Note Tone Poet Series)

Wayne Shorter - Odyssey Of Iska (Blue Note Tone Poet Series) - Blue Note Records

The winds of change were blowing through Wayne Shorter's life and career in 1970. The saxophonist had just left Miles Davis' group and was soon to form his collective fusion band Weather Report. His music was evolving too as he began to delve into his own unique fusion explorations on his previous two Blue Note recordings Super Nova and Moto Grosso Feio. Recorded in August 1970, the mesmerizing Odyssey of Iska would be the last release of Shorter's early Blue Note period. The album was a tribute to his daughter Iska-who had been born the year before with severe brain damage-with four immersive Shorter compositions portraying a variety of moods: "Wind," "Storm," "Calm," and "Joy." The album's centerpiece is an extended version of Bobby Thomas' Brazilian influenced piece "De Pois do Amor, o Vazio" (After Love, Emptiness), foreshadowing Shorter's growing interest in Brazilian music which he would explore further in the years to come. Shorter's soprano and tenor saxophones are the lone horns heard on the album which featured Gene Bertoncini on guitar, David Friedman on vibraphone and marimba, Ron Carter and Cecil McBee on bass, and Alphonse Mouzon, Billy Hart, and Frank Cuomo contributing drums and percussion.

Donald Byrd - Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill (Blue Note Tone Poet Series)

Donald Byrd - Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill (Blue Note Tone Poet Series) - Blue Note Records

Recorded in 1956 for producer Tom Wilson's short-lived Boston-based label Transition Records, Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill presented trumpeter Donald Byrd in a relaxed and intimate quartet setting with his frequent collaborator Doug Watkins on bass along with Boston area musicians Ray Santisi on piano and Jim Zitano on drums. The standards heavy set was captured on a rainy Spring afternoon in the Beacon Hill home of engineer Steve Fassett which provided a casual atmosphere that gave the album both it's title and it's easy-going charm. Byrd is at his lyrical best on Joe Sullivan's tune "Little Rock Getaway" as well versions of "Polka Dots and Moonbeams," "If I Love Again," and "Stella by Starlight." The trumpeter lays out to let the trio shine on "People Will Say We're in Love" and "What's New."

Jason Moran - Ten
Jason Moran - Ten (Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series)
- Blue Note Records

Pianist and composer Aaron Parks made his first Blue Note appearances as a member of Terence Blanchard’s band, an outfit akin to The Jazz Messengers in its cultivation of future jazz greats. After appearing on the trumpeter’s albums Bounce, Flow, and A Tale of God’s Will through the early 2000s, Parks made his own Blue Note debut in 2008 with Invisible Cinema, a striking album that has only grown in its influence across the modern jazz landscape since its release. The band—a quartet featuring the pianist with Mike Moreno on guitar, Matt Penman on bass, and Eric Harland on drums—travelled across new sonic and rhythmic frontiers on this set of Parks’ evocative original compositions which were imbued with a cinematic drama and drew inspiration from the likes of Wayne Shorter, Radiohead, Bjork, Meshell Ndegeocello, and more. This first-time vinyl release includes two bonus tracks previously only available in Japan.
