The Lower Side Of UptownToadies will release their next album The Lower Side Of Uptown via Kirtland Records. This will be the band's seventh studio album and a ‘return to form' as explained by frontman Vaden Todd Lewis: "This album is ‘roots Toadies", full of riffs and time shifts.' The Lower Side Of Uptown is the follow up to 2015's Heretics which saw the band taking a change of pace with a stripped down sound and mostly acoustic. When they were preparing to enter the studio this time around there was no set idea for what was to come but, the process ultimately had the band going back to their signature sound: "I feel that subconsciously we thought that this record would have ended up incorporating some of that quieter sound, but that didn't happen. When we got to the studio with nothing more than a pile of riffs, what came out of the band was really loud and heavy music. So not only is this album louder than Heretics, I think it's louder and heavier than the last couple Toadies albums" guitarist Clark Vogeler said of the sessions, which were recorded Arlyn Studio, a favorite of the legendary Willie Nelson, and The Bubble in Austin.1.

PsychphonicRock choir Polyphonic Spree return with Psychphonic, an LP that pays homage to frontman Tim DeLaughter’s cinematic experience by taking the innovation of the band’s most critically acclaimed album to date, Yes, It’s True, and remixing it towards a more atmospheric sound.
“I always enjoy a date with my Linn drum machine. Once I set the mood and tone I go from there in terms of songwriting,” said DeLaughter in a press release.
Twenty-two members strong, Polyphonic Spree orchestrates an album that’s ambient without being dull, rhythmic without being repetitive. It’s fitting, since DeLaughter’s first instrument was drums: he says his first set was an assembly of empty Baskin-Robbins containers. In more recent work, he’s focused on drums as an underpinning for more integrated orchestral sounds. Violins, baritone sax, and piano accelerate the melodies on Psychphonic rather than accenting their own self-conscious solos.

Yes It's TrueYes, It's True is the first proper studio album by The Polyphonic Spree since 2007′s The Fragile Army.
“The songs here are from many different periods in the last few years,” frontman Tim DeLaughter explains. “This record feels like a collection of “songs” rather than a long listening piece which we’ve done previously in the Spree stylistically. It’s kind of refreshing.”
The album was recorded in stages and produced by The Speekers alongside Eric Drew Feldman (PJ Harvey, Captain Beefheart) with mixing done by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2).1. You Don't Know Me

Alternative rock first emerged in Britain in the late 70s and early 80s, but it didn’t really hit its stride until the 90s with the arrival of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction. That was also right around the time that Nirvana and Pearl Jam fueled the grunge rock explosion.
And when you want the full and real alt rock experience, you’ve gotta try it out on vinyl, and SoundStage Direct is your one-stop shop for all the best alternative rock vinyls.
