    A Change Of Seasons

    2x 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Includes 4-Page Booklet


    A Change of Seasons is an EP by progressive metal band Dream Theater, originally released in September 1995. It comprises the 23-minute title track and a collection of live cover songs performed at a fan club concert at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, England in January 1995. A Change of Seasons was the first Dream Theater release featuring Derek Sherinian on keyboards.


    The song A Change of Seasons was originally written in 1989 and was intended to be a part of Images and Words, but at almost 17 minutes, it was deemed too long for studio placement. It had nevertheless been performed live by the band, who continued to revise it through the years. Fans around the world put pressure on the band to officially release the song. The petition was successful, and the group entered BearTracks Studios in New York in May 1995 to rewrite and record the now 23-minute-long song. Although the song includes audio samples from the 1989 film Dead Poets Society (as well as quotes from the 1648 Robert Herrick poem To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time), the lyrics were not inspired by the film.


    Although the record is labeled as an EP, its running time of 57:30 makes it significantly longer than a standard EP, and even many LPs, including Dream Theater's first two albums. As it was important for the band and label for it not to be perceived as the latest studio record, they tagged it an EP.

    Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

    British violinist Nigel Kennedy's brilliant recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons has become one of the best-selling classical albums of all-time. Recorded originally in November of 1986 in the Church of St John-at-Hackney, London with the English Chamber Orchestra, it was a recording that would achieve unparalleled public and media attention and change the course of music history, marking the first time that commercial pop marketing was used in the classical world!

    Sound Of Change

    The Sound of Change can't come from external forces, it has to emanate from within. For Dirty Heads, evolution beyond their reggae-rock roots has developed over time and is manifested on their new album "Sound of Change." Due out summer 2014 via Five Seven Music, the album boasts some of the groups' most diverse and ambitious work to date. "Sound of Change" takes a literal meaning with the production of this album, as the band links up with Grammy award winning producer Supa Dups (Nina Sky, Bruno Mars), Buddah Shampoo (Ty Dolla $ign), Niles (of hip hop duo, The Cataracs), Ward 21 (311, Major Lazer reggae collaborators) and long-time friend and collaborator, Rome (Sublime).


    The feel-good vibe associated with their sound was not forgotten. Sonically, "Sound of Change" amps up the groundwork laid by previous albums. Fine-tuned alternative choruses work harmoniously with hip-hop influenced production that seams the songs together. Universal themes of compassion, reflection and happiness are at the core of "Sound of Change." "We wanted the songs on this album to touch on the things we deeply care about and the people we are inside" front man Jared (Dirty J) Watson asserts, "but then we want to address the other side - when the weekend comes and we need to let go and just rage." Who can't relate to that feeling?


    Vocalist/Guitarist Dustin Bushnell (Duddy B) is constantly looking to connect the dots between the live show with the album tracks, often mentally mapping out the live elements as the songs are being recorded. For the touring cycle surrounding the release "Sound of Change" the band plans to bring a live show that will energetically compliment each new track. Dirty Heads have racked up their miles bringing that live experience to fans across the globe for over a decade. "Now that our lives are touring we get to see the world," both Watson and Bushnell agree, "we're taking stories and vibes from around the world and making this album is the culmination of that."


    The band's breakout 2008 album "Any Port In The Storm" included the chart-topping hit track "Lay Me Down" which features current Sublime frontman, Rome. The track had an incredible run for eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts, laying a solid foundation for their follow up sophomore album "Cabin By The Sea" which was released in 2012. Dirty Heads then began their musical metamorphosis with their 2013 acoustic album "Home - Phantoms Of Summer," allowing time for their metamorphosis embodied in "Sound of Change." Their previous work featured contributions from talent such as Del The Funky Homosapien, Matisyahu, Rome (Sublime) and guitar legend Slash.


    "Sound of Change" is a melting pot of all the band members' experiences and musical persuasions, addressing both serious and lighthearted subject matter in their signature way. On the lighter side of the spectrum, "Burn Slow" (Produced by Rome, featuring rapper, Tech N9ne) showcases the hip-hop oriented side of the band. With anthemic choruses and a feel-good aura, Watson boasts the song is the perfect soundtrack for those times when you're "having a good time, going out with friends and realize that sometimes you just need to chill." The retro sound and sexy lyrics of "Hear You Comin," highlights Watson's soaring vocals in its hook. The first single, the metaphorical "My Sweet Summer" (produced by Niles from The Cataracs) is, in reality, a song for all seasons. An undeniable groove underlines the lyrical lament. The title track "Sound of Change" is the key manifestation of the artistic maturation of the band. "The world is always changing political and social outlooks and on a broader scale, look at the changes within yourself" Watson reflects, "the song is about embracing the change life is going to bring no matter what, because that change is inevitable." Though there is diversity on "Sound of Change," as a body of work, it is cohesive in a way only Dirty Heads can achieve.


    As a full six-piece unit, frontmen Watson and Bushnell are joined by keyboardist/vocalist Shawn Hagood, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa and bassist David Foral. This lineup is hell-bent on grabbing new ears with "Sound of Change." Their own journey can be heard within the album- all you have to do is sit back and listen.

    Poison Season

    Poison Season opens with Vancouver native Dan Bejar swathed in Hunky Dory strings. He's a dashboard Bowie surveying four wracked characters-Jesus, Jacob, Judy, Jack-simultaneously Biblical and musical theatre. This bittersweet, Times Square-set fanfare is reprised twice more on the record-first as swaying, saxophone-stoked "street-rock" and then finally as a curtain-closing reverie. "The first and last songs are actually one song tracked live with quintet," explains their author. "I even sang with the band. That song always swung between super austere and super mid-'70s Springsteen/Bowie street-rock. In the end, I decided I wanted both. Couldn't really figure out a way to sequence the orchestral version within the record, so I decided to carve it up as a book-ending motif, with the rock version squarely in the middle." Mr. Bejar has long displayed a chameleonic instinct for change while maintaining a unified aesthetic (rather than just pinballing between reference points). No two records sound the same, but they're always uniquely Destroyer. His latest incarnation often appears to take sonic cues from a distinctly British (usually Scottish, to be precise) strain of sophisti-pop: you might hear traces of Aztec Camera, Prefab Sprout, Orange Juice, or The Blow Monkeys. These songs merge a casual literary brilliance with intense melodic verve, nimble arrangements, and a certain blue-eyed soul sadness.

    Once In A Livetime

    Import

    The rst ocial live album of Dream Theater, Once In A LIVEtime, was released to great critical acclaim in 1998 after recording an intense live show in Paris earlier that year. Their musical skills guarantee a legendary performance, at times resembling Yes' or Emerson, Lake & Palmer's prog prowess. Highlights include their instrumental tour de force "Ytse Jam" as well as the fan favorites "Pull Me Under", "Lie", "Metropolis" and
    certain portions of their lengthy "A Change of Seasons" composition. Combined, this recording takes 2.5 hours to experience from front to back, and so this release deserves all 4 LP's the grooves are pressed on. Available on vinyl for the rst time!

    East Is East

    In East is East, Pepi Ginsberg and her collaborators step into the golden hour of the day and embrace The most ephemeral of seasons. A mood and a time where we know that change is coming in the form of a cool wind; we hold on until we let go. The song 'Summer Sick as Love' accomplishes this feeling, with its mythical descriptions of gutter punks and wind ravaged stop-signs. Ginsberg, with arrangements expertly handled by her band, creates a world with East is East, that is the season in between, and parts the waters, navigating change in the sea of these strange times.

    Ultraviolet (Awaiting Repress)

    KYLESA have returned as challenging and daring as ever on their 6th full length, 'Ultraviolet!' Moving well beyond their trademark riffs, 'Ultraviolet' sees core founding members, Laura Pleasants and Phillip Cope, expanding and evolving. The dualism of Pleasants' versatile singing and Cope's shouted vocals melds perfectly with the constant change in sound. Shifting effortlessly from heavy hard rock riffs to punk-infused beats to even barren cold wave concoctions, 'Ultraviolet' sees KYLESA progressing in ways never thought possible and is undoubtedly one of the best records of 2013!

    Boys Don't Cry


    Often obscure selections by marginal writers...it's unbelievable how believable she sounds. It really does sound like another season in her soul Album of the Week -Observer


    Songs worth learning especially when sung as gorgeously as this 4/5 - Independent On Sunday


    A gorgeous album -The Times


    Rumer was born and spent the very early years of her life in Pakistan. Her father's engineering job led her along with six other siblings to Darbela Dam, 30 miles northwest of Islamabad. Previously, the job had taken them to the Western Australian outback and Tasmania as well as to South Africa. . Her brother Rob gave Rumer her first guitar which she taught herself to play, and years later, she wrote all the songs on her debut album, Seasons of My Soul.


    Life changed when the family returned to the UK and settled in the New Forest. Her parents having separated, Rumer was educated in Carlisle with her Dad, and spent summers in the New Forest. She left school at 16, and began to drift; studying at Art College in Devon and then joining a fledgling indie rock band, La Honda. Plays from Radio 1 followed, as did early support from NME.


    Her mother died in 2003, and Rumer hit rock bottom. The lyrics of songs like 'Healer' document Rumer's journey through grief. On the dole and back in London, Rumer took action. She travelled to a stately home in the countryside, where she essentially lived as part of a commune, owned by a charismatic, philanthropic baronet.


    Rumer's luck changed when she met award-winning TV and musical composer Steve Brown (It's A Wonderful Life, Spend, Spend Spend) at the Cobden Club in Kensal Rise. Rumer and Steven worked together and produced the first single 'Slow'. Having been signed to ATC Management, all corners of the industry quickly began angling for her signature. Then, in March, her hard work paid off, and Rumer finally signed to Atlantic Records. She released Seasons of My Soul, her self-penned debut album in 2010.

    Divine Intervention

    The rock & roll landscape changed dramatically between Seasons in the Abyss in 1990 and Divine Intervention in 1994. With the rise of alternative rock, many metal and hard rock bands that had been enormously successful at the dawn of the '90s were struggling by the middle of the decade. Instead of doing something calculated like emulating Nirvana or Pearl Jam -- or for that matter, Nine Inch Nails or Ministry -- Slayer wisely refused to sound like anyone but Slayer. Tom Araya and co. responded to the new environment simply by striving to be the heaviest metal band they possibly could. Less accessible than Seasons but equally riveting, Divine Intervention marked drummer Paul Bostaph's studio debut with the band. Bostaph proved to be a positive, energizing influence on Slayer, which sounds better than ever on such dark triumphs as Killing Fields, Serenity in Murder, and Circle of Beliefs. Characteristically grim and morbid, Slayer focus on the violently repressive nature of governments and the lengths to which they will go to wield power. And true to form, Slayer's music is as disturbing as their lyrics.

    Esoteric Warfare

    Esoteric Warfare is the fifth studio album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem.


    It has been seven long years since MAYHEM released their fourth and last full-length Ordo ad Chao. Founded as early as in 1984 in Oslo, Norway by the late and legendary frontman Øystein Aarseth aka Euronymous, bassist Jørn Necrobutcher Stubberud, and Kjetil Manheim Haraldsson on drums, the band took its name from the VENOM song Mayhem with Mercy. Continuing and renewing the Black Metal style heralded by the English trio, MAYHEM soon became the instigators of the so called second wave and were at the heart of every controversy surrounding that genre. The suicide of misanthropic frontman Per Yngve Dead Ohlin. The murder of Euronymous by guest bass player Count Grishnakh alias the notorious Varg Vikernes. Church burnings, drugs and prison sentences, MAYHEM were always at the centre of the storm. Yet not even death could stop the Norwegians, who released one musical milestone after the other. The incredible rawness of the Deathcrush EP (1987) was followed by the still iconic and genre defining De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas (1994), which featured devilish drummer Jan Axel Hellhammer Blomberg, who had joined in 1988. The vocalist on this album was the Hungarian Attila Csihar of TORMENTOR fame, who returned later in 2004 to take over from his meantime heir, the enigmatic original singer Sven-Erik Maniac Kristiansen. The latter was featured on the Wolf's Lair Abyss EP (1997), which was written mostly by highly talented guitarist Rune Blasphemer Eriksen, who scored a massive success with the highly controversial Grand Declaration Of War (2000). Those were followed by the more classic Chimera (2004) and a masterpiece of utter darkness called Ordo Ad Chao (2007) with Attila singing again, which inspired many bands to follow in its tracks. MAYHEM had always witnessed many line-up changes due to the circumstances described above. Therefore even the loss of Blasphemer, who decided to focus on his other band AVA INFERI in 2008, did not stop the band. Activities mainly revolved around live shows, until the right balance was found again with the recruitment of Morten Teloch Iversen. The guitarist had already made a name for himself with NIDINGR, which is highly regarded amongst black metal enthusiasts yet remained mostly an underground phenomenon. Now his first compositional work with MAYHEM is unleashed and demonstrates how perfectly Teloch has captured the essence and spirit of the Norwegian legend by linking the band back to its roots, while at the same time taking a step forward into the spearhead position of the genre instead of dwelling in nostalgia. The A-side, Psywar comes with a different mastering than the album version. The B-side, From Beyond the Event Horizon is a rare track taken from the much rumoured Budapest Recording Sessions, which the band decided to scratch. Tremble world, MAYHEM are back with a vengeance!

    LA EP

    Earlier this year, Atlanta's Dog Bite found themselves with downtime in Los Angeles between a successful tour with labelmates Toro Y Moi and shows at SXSW in Austin. The four-piece that makes up the touring group started messing around with different sounds and came up with their rst full-band release, the LA EP. This document of the road-tested crew is a stunning sequel to Velvet Changes, the band's debut LP, which showcased the talents of singer-songwriter Phil Jones and bassist Woody
    Shortridge.


    The LA EP begins with "Warm, Wake Up," a song that
    captures the bliss of a sunny day in the palm tree-dotted landscape and the romantic intrigue of Hollywood's studio lots. Motoring back down that winding road, we hear "Hunting Seasons where mid-20th century boogie haunts the track's guitars as the reverberating beat oats us back up to the clouds.


    A feeling of melancholia drifts throughout the EP's songs. But the saddest part about this collection is its 13-minute length. It ies by like a short vacation or a cool breeze. But much more than sorrow for its passing, the LA EP inspires excitement for the next gust of wind.

    Legion (Original Television Series Soundtrack)

    Lakeshore Records presents LEGION (Original Television Series Soundtrack) by Jeff Russo.

    When I first started working on LEGION, the showrunner Noah Hawley gave me some great feedback regarding the tonal palate, he suggested I read neurologist Oliver Sacks Hallucinations, said Russo. It was a fascinating read and it really did help inspire. It is all about the way that our mind can change our perception of reality and what that says about our brains. It was something that directed me right to where this amazing show was going.

    LEGION, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens) - a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David's routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which he must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.

    I used many esoteric synths from the 70s including something called a 'synthi,' described Russo of his approach to the score. That along with a traditional cinematic orchestral sound makes up most of the sound of the score. I also used a lot of bowing metals...springs, and different kinds of metal percussion.

    EMMY® and Grammy®-nominated musician, Jeff Russo has become a prominent composer, songwriter and arranger in the film and television industry. Russo received two Emmy nominations for his memorable music on FX's Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series, Fargo. He is currently scoring the third season of the show, as well as Starz's hit drama Power. Russo's music was recently heard on HBO's hit Golden Globe-nominated miniseries The Night Of.

    Abandoned City

    "It's a joy to listen to, and one of the
    brightest, most invigorating records
    I've heard all year." - Pitchfork


    "It's as infectious and disarming as it
    is genre-defying." - Mojo


    Hauschka is a composer, songwriter and experimental musician who
    has brought an exciting new perspective to the prepared piano - a
    technique for getting new sounds from the acoustic keyboard by
    resting pieces of paper or drumsticks on the strings of the instrument.


    Abandoned City was recorded in Hauschka's home studio in a burst
    of creative energy following the birth of his first son. The songs were
    recorded using nine microphones. Six recorded the sounds coming
    from the piano strings through an analogue console feeding directly
    into a computer to preserve the instrument's full, warm sound. Three
    others passed the tones through a mixer full of effects - delay,
    distortion, echo - that can be triggered separately or used
    simultaneously. Hauschka creates the music and the arrangements
    as he goes, trusting the music to take him in the proper direction.
    "Most of the songs were played on one piano; I was mixing as I
    played. If I needed more piano, I overdubbed with another twiddling of
    effects. All the sounds - harp, balafon, Melodica, drums - are
    produced by the keyboard," Hauschka explains. The compositions on
    Abandoned City awaken the loneliness and unattainable romance of
    timeless, unfamiliar places, with cinematic melodies full of resonant
    overtones, bright cheerful keyboard patterns and dark percussive
    touches. The tracks all bear the names of actual vacant cities.


    Hauschka chose Abandoned City as the title of the album to convey
    the sense of hope and sadness that consumes him when he's sitting
    alone at the keyboard. "I was interested in finding a metaphor for the
    inner tension I feel when I'm composing music, a state of mind where
    I'm lonely and happy at the same time," Hauschka professes. "When I
    saw photos of abandoned cities, I felt it was perfect. People once lived
    there, but they left in a rush and now nature has taken over in a
    beautiful way, things are growing up from the sidewalk and the
    seasons are changing colors. The music is dark, but in a quiet,
    uplifting way. The piano is singing the melody but, because of the
    effects, you can't hear it directly. It's like the sound of a choir under the
    earth, something you feel without realizing it."

    Kindly Now (Awaiting Repress)

    Keaton Henson will release his third official studio album, 'Kindly Now', via Play It Again Sam. Having sold out the Roundhouse earlier this year, Keaton has also confirmed plans for his biggest European headline shows to date, including a show at London's Palladium on November 18th.


    'Alright' was written in Los Angeles shortly after the release of Henson's acclaimed second album, 'Birthdays'. Struggling with the apparent trade-off of having to put himself on display in order to make the music he loved, 'Alright' describes a very English way of grinning through pain (and also the sense that despite your world shifting so quickly, maybe you haven't changed very much at all). It's a stunning introduction to 'Kindly Now', a record which simultaneously broadens Keaton's canvas - more electronic in places, more classical in others - yet also reflects a life-long love of Randy Newman. 'Kindly Now' is ultimately Keaton Henson's most emotionally stripped-back album thus far, an unheroic and unsettling examination of past loves, the role of the artist, and owning up to your own destruction.


    'Kindly Now' continues an extraordinary journey for Keaton Henson, who quietly released his limited edition, hand-made debut album 'Dear ' in 2012, before a surprise Zane Lowe play led to a flurry of investigation into Henson's identity and whereabouts. Despite choosing not to perform or promote his record in a conventional manner, his heavier second album 'Birthdays' saw Keaton make an astonishing return to the live arena: from playing one-on-one for fans, to cinemas, museums and churches internationally. Whilst beginning to write songs for 'Kindly Now', Keaton pushed himself in two extreme directions: first, he taught himself the art of orchestration and arrangement, and surprise-released the critically acclaimed collection of bedroom-classical music, 'Romantic Works', on the same day as his immediately-sold-out date at London's Meltdown Festival (at the request of James Lavelle). Then, having completed 'Kindly Now', Henson pushed the more electronic textures of some of his new songs into 'Behaving', his first album of wholly-electronic music (also staging a DIY, immersive production of Vivaldi's Four Seasons for two-sold out nights at Oval Space, in association with The Barbican).


    On top of his work as a worldwide-exhibited visual artist, Keaton has recently released his first poetry collection ('Idiot Verse') and scored the forthcoming Balletboyz' feature-length World-War-One epic 'Young Men' in conjunction with the BBC (originally performed at Sadler's Wells, and resulting in Keaton conducting the BBC Concert Orchestra). This has all - one way or another - fed into 'Kindly Now': an album four years in the making, from an artist of whom all you can expect is the unexpected, but reliably unflinching.

    Victory Lap

    The first thing to know, if you want to know about Propagandhi, is that they came here to rock. Right from the snarling opening riff of their seventh album,Victory Lap, that much is clear. For everything else that swirls around the band now, and for the last 31 years - the politics, the people and, lately,a gnawing sense of despair - the sheer volume of it all hasn't changed.

    Frontman Chris Hannah and bassist Todd Kowalski experienced a big change in the band when after nine years with Propagandhi, guitarist DavidThe Beaver Guillas left the band for a teaching position and the band added a new member , Sulynn Hago, a seasoned guitar-slinger from Tampa,Florida. (That said, Guillas is still all over Victory Lap, contributing licksto four songs.)

    So what do you do, when you're an unapologetically political band in a time when political speech seems more fractured than it has been in years? When the darkness looms and the rapacious maws of power seem to devour more by the day? You can't stop the violence; you can't save the world. But neither can you stand to sit back, and just watch it all burn. So here's what you do: you strap up a guitar and get ready to rock.

    One From The Heart

    Numbered, Limited Edition


    Tom Waits and Crystal Gale Create Magic Together on Waits' Most Accessible Outing


    Small Combo Band Provides Jazzy and Bluesy Support


    Stupendous Sonics: Music Largely Recorded Live on Studio Floor


    One From the Heart ranks among the best soundtracks in history. Essential for any Tom Waits or Crystal Gayle devotee, it sets an example of what's not only possible, but should be expected and demanded, when two likeminded artists collaborate. Heartstrings are tugged, passions kindled and lost, sentiments exchanged, skeletons dragged out of closets, seasons changed, romantic truisms cited. And its wide-open sound is supreme, the result of most tracks being recorded live in the studio, free of after-effects and interference.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP presents the Academy Award-nominated One From the Heart in stunning sonic relief. You'll be able to gauge the signature tones of the guitars and hear inside the cavity of Waits' piano. Perhaps most importantly, Gayle and Waits' voices now sound just feet away, with your room converted into the world's coolest late-night lounge. Spatial cues, background accents, and studio dimensions emerge with striking realism.


    Inspired by a track Waits cut with Bette Midler on his Foreign Affairs effort, One From the Heart overflows with simpatico chemistry, poignant contrast, elegant atmospherics, and awestruck intimacy. On their four vocal duets, Gayle and Waits inhabit the personas of a man and woman breaking apart yet sharing common bonds. Their singing plumbs emotional depths that traverse melancholy, sensuality, and understanding. Made before Waits' baritone turned into a deep, gravel-laden instrument, the songs are more smoke than whiskey, more piano-man empathy than hipster growler.


    Written by Waits, the music occupies a common ground between laidback small-combo jazz, lounge pop, and downbeat blues. Classy string orchestrations abet a crack ensemble comprised of saxophonist Terry Edwards, drummer Shelly Manne, pianist Pete Jolly, bassist Greg Cohen, and others. The arrangements seamlessly melt into both vocalists' leads, allowing every note-every piano clink, acoustic bass ripple, brushed snare drum-to register with utmost magnitude.


    Experienced on stunning soliloquy pieces such as Gayle's mournful ballad "Is There Any Way Out of This Dream?" and back-and-forth collaborative efforts like the breakup take "Picking Up After You," beautiful instrumentation, spacious production, and flawless vocal phrasing take hold. You can picture the broken dreams exiting out the side doors of the dim bars and abandoned houses that pepper the narratives. Renowned for his sad songs, Waits has never been in better form, the goodbye fare clicking with unflinching honesty and personality.

    Saosin (Awaiting Repress)

    Saosin is the debut album by post-hardcore band Saosin. Includes a matte finish with spot UV gatefold jacket and full color inner sleeve.


    The long wait is over. California's Saosin issued their debut EP Translating the Name in 2003. They already had a well-developed fan base for their unique, even enigmatic brand of post-hardcore screamo. The band, having undergone some personnel changes -- most notably singer Anthony Green's departure in 2004 and the enlisting of Cove Reber as his replacement -- also underwent a sonic change on their self-titled 2005 EP. That primer was a guidebook to the band's new sound. Their Capitol debut, produced by Howard Benson, who also plays keyboards and does minimal programming, is a much slicker and far more imaginative outing than the band's underground fans may appreciate. That's not to say it's not impressive. It is. Quite so. This quintet are fine songwriters, excellent musicians, and have actually taken their post-underground hardcore beginnings and turned them into something that may indeed further rock music itself. This is not an idle claim. The songs on this album are tight, finished, and full of unexpected twists and turns, varied dynamics, fine lyrics, and, most of all, they're surprising. The hard twin-guitar sound at the front drives a rhythm section that is always in the pocket. Justin Shekoski and Beau Burchell work symbiotically with one another. They twin riffs and single lines without ever devolving into guitar heroics. They play as a unit. Reber's beautiful high-pitched voice walks the line but never resorts to screaming, because he doesn't have to: his instrument is powerful enough to ride the top of the musical swirl. The rhythm section carries the cradle of all this innovation, never slipping or abandoning these songs to mere workmanship. Check the killer counterpoint leads on Follow and Feel, and how drummer Alex Rodriguez takes the beat to the band inside the tune. When Reber enters with Don't let them know you're watching their situation crumble... his lyric is one of dislocation and the futile attempt to understand distance and dissolution. The killer, all-out rock riff in It's So Simple is beguiling as the song's dynamics and pace change three times inside of four minutes. That's the other beauty of this record; all but one track are under four minutes. The album flows from top to bottom; songs bleed into one another yet keep their distinctive identities. It's a strange comparison, but Saosin are as unique in their way as U2 were in their right from the beginning. Though they are seasoned road warriors, it's no mean achievement that a debut album carrying so much weight seemingly so effortlessly, is so utterly sophisticated and complete . Sure, Capitol will try to make them the next big thing, and maybe they should -- when's the last time you heard anything really new in rock music? Bury Your Head is the only track here that is a carry-over from Saosin's EP. Its woven textures, explosive singing, knotty basslines, and call and response vocals are chilling and utterly effective. Saosin walk that line between metal, indie rock, post-hardcore, and many other things. But that tautness is what gives their songs such power and ruddy grace. The album may garner the charges of sell-out from the underground, but musicians grow. In a relatively short time, Saosin has evolved into a smart, utterly talented and perhaps even visionary unit that is rewriting the book in the 21st century. They have delivered a debut album that is mature, truly original, that can garner the attention of those kids -- and hopefully, older adults who still care about rock -- from almost any side of the rock & roll spectrum. - Allmusic.com

    Dope Machines

    Every so often, one song can change everything. For The Airborne Toxic Event, that particular number happened to be an A Capella version of Queen and David Bowie's classic duet "Under Pressure".


    "Somebody played it for me, and it blew my mind," declares vocalist and guitarist Mikel Jollett. "I made a decision to change my whole approach to music. I just wanted to be joyful about it. I wasn't going to worry anymore. For the first three records, I thought mostly like writer. My mindset changed. It was about inventing a musical logic that was unabashedly catchy and rhythmic, but way weirder than anything we've done in the past."


    That "logic" came to life while Mikel composed "Hell and Back" for the Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack in August 2013. Under a tight deadline, he had no choice but to produce the track himself-a first for the Los Angeles outfit. However, he didn't stop there.


    The frontman would go on to personally produce The Airborne Toxic Event's fourth full-length album and first for Epic Records Dope Machines with the blessing and support of Steven Chen [guitar, keyboards], Anna Bulbrook [violin, keyboard, backing vocals], Daren Taylor [drums], and Adrian Rodríguez [bass].


    "Producing was massively challenging and super fun," admits Mikel. "When we finished the last record, our producer Jacquire King said to me, 'I think you're ready to produce an album now.' I felt like we had reached the apotheosis of being a proper rock band. This was the exact opposite. It was me alone in a room for 12 hours a day working harder than I'd ever worked."


    Early in the process, Mikel tapped into a boundless aesthetic, embracing electronic elements as well as pop structures and unbridled rock 'n' roll bombast. At the same time, it defied categorization at every turn. "That's one of the hallmarks of the record," he affirms. "It doesn't sound like anything else."


    The first single "Wrong" merges striking synths and an electronic swing with an evocative refrain punctuated by a robust groove. It's borderline danceable, but always chant-able.


    "It's just about a guy feeling insecure," explains Mikel. "I wrote it at a time of massive upheaval in my life. We all have that moment. You look over everything and think, 'I am an idiot!' It's not every day, but you wish you could start over. That's the idea."


    "California" turns a spotlight on a different side of the Golden State from the perspective of a true native. All the while, it still boasts an unshakable refrain and intricate instrumentation.


    "I grew up in California," he goes on. "My parents were hippies, and I was born in the back of a VW bus on the beach. I was around everybody from Beatniks to gang members to kids who just emigrated from Guatemala or Ethiopia. None of this had anything to do with the popular image of what California is-that idea of palm trees and movie stars. As soon as you've got an idea of utopia, it begs a dystopia. It's an idea of apocalypse right around the corner in a place that's considered ideal."


    Simultaneously, the title track tempers a distinct guitar bounce with entrancing harmonies, making for a provocative and potent dichotomy.


    "You can interact with all of these dope hand devices, but they make you sort of dopey an hour later," he sighs. "You make music with them. They can save you from a heart attack. They're little extensions of the things that make us fundamentally human, which is the desire to interact with one another. The machines are all of these things at the same time."


    In the middle of 2014 after moving on from Island Records, Epic Records C.E.O. L.A. Reid reached out and signed them-for the second time.


    "L.A. signed us way-back-when at Island," recalls Mikel. "He literally saw us at Bowery Ballroom in New York, came backstage, and offered us a record deal. The moment we were free, he sent us a deal memo. It's a pleasure to be working with him again. He's a big believer, and he brings a lot of energy to this."


    They've carried a similar energy through three full-length albums: The Airborne Toxic Event [2008], which spawned the gold-selling single "Sometime Around Midnight", All At Once [2010], and Such Hot Blood [2013]. In addition to reaching gold status, iTunes named "Sometime Around Midnight" the "#1 Alternative Song of the Year", and it spent a staggering eight weeks at #1 on Billboard's Heatseakers Chart. HBO utilized it on their high-profile Network Season Promo. The group has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman four times, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno four times, and on Jimmy Kimmel Live! three times. Moreover, they've taken the stage at festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza and sold over 50,000 tickets in 2013 alone.


    In many ways though, Dope Machines signals something of a rebirth.


    "It's like debuting a new phase," concludes Mikel. "It was a new approach. We've got a new label. We threw out everything we were tired of and moved on to a brand new palette. That was the goal. This isn't what The Airborne Toxic Event is supposed to be. This is who we are.

    For All Kings


    Blue Colored Vinyl


    Eleven studio albums and 33 years into their career, and ANTHRAX is set to output quite possibly the best thing they've ever done. "For All Kings" pulls no punches. This is a seriously heavy and astonishingly good record.


    2013 saw the departure of guitarist Rob Caggiano to Volbeat, and the arrival of Jon Donais from Shadows Fall, who also makes his recording debut with Anthrax. Joey Belladonna is far and away the star of this recording, and I'll tell you why. In a world where an organic instrument like a voice can deteriorate over time and change how it sounds can be devastating for someone who makes their living from it- I'm looking at you, David Lee Roth. It's very evident that Mr. Belladonna does not have such issues, as his delivery is just as powerful as it was 30 years ago. Charlie Benante's amazing drumming is another constant in Anthrax, as is Frank Bello's bass playing; always top-notch and inspired. Band leader, Scott Ian, has brought Anthrax an incredible distance, and really shows off his mature musicianship with the other guys with his superior songwriting, even contributing lyrics for the first single, "Evil Twin", which was loosely written about the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo publication offices in 2015.


    They began recording in late 2014 with producer Jay Ruston in Los Angeles, California. Reportedly 15-20 songs were recorded and completed. Early in 2015, We were treated with a new song, "Soror Irrumator" which was featured on the Catch The Throne Mixtape Volume Two, and was scheduled to appear on "For All Kings", but strangely, does not appear on the album, despite what the band had suggested. Alex Ross gets his third turn as album artist, as he depicts the band as giant statues.


    Anthrax today, is not the Anthrax of 1987, and "For All Kings" is not "Among The Living", even though 4/5 of the band are still intact from their peak period. I say that in a good way, because as good as they were then, to put it simply, they're better now. Better songwriters, better musicians, seasoned bandmates that know that they're better together than apart. If you loved "Worship Music" as much as I did, you'll love this album. When you can be a band that has played together for well over 30 years and still put out quality music like "For All Kings", it's nothing short of magic.
