G I R LRedefining cool for a new generation, Pharrell Williams is a creative force, using music, fashion, and design to express his distinctive style. From his beginnings as a teenage prodigy and multi-instrumentalist in Virginia Beach back in the early '90s, through enough hits to earn him Billboard's Producer of the Decade in 2010, to his current status as multi-media superstar, Williams has never stopped creating. Starting his producing career as one half of The Neptunes with Chad Hugo, Williams has helped create such classics as Daft Punk's Get Lucky, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, Nelly's Hot in Herre, Jay-Z's I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me), Britney Spears's I'm A Slave 4 U, and Justin Timberlake's Like I Love You.
With over 100 million copies of his productions sold, his music sounds like something no one else has thought of just yet. He's also created a new way of looking at established stars like SnoopDogg, Madonna, and even the Rolling Stones. Over four albums, Williams and Hugo along with Shae Haley created an unpredictable hybrid as part of the alt-rock/hip-hop group N.E.R.D. His prolific body of work also ranges from designing a sculpture with Tokyo-born artist Takashi Murakami to accessories and jewelry for luxury goods brands Louis Vuittonand Moncler. Now, with his latest venture i am OTHER a multi-media creative collective that serves as an umbrella for all his endeavors, including Billionaire Boys Club & ICECREAM apparel, textile company Bionic Yarn and dedicated YouTube channel Williams' vision continues to push pop culture forward.
G I R L is Pharrell's highly anticipated new album, and features the hit single, Happy, an international phenomenon and radio smash. Happy was first featured on Despicable Me 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). It is nominated for an OSCAR this year for Best Original Song, and Pharrell will perform Happy on the OSCARs on March 2nd, on ABC.
Happy has sold more than 2.3 million tracks worldwide, and has topped the chart in more than 175 countries. Currently in the US, the song generates over 120 million weekly audience impressions across 6 radio formats - Top 40, Rhythm, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, and AAA. Happy has also just been certified Platinum.

ChallengersTHE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS return with their fourth
album and their first recorded outside of bassist John
Collins's basement studio. Airier, more spacious and
more relaxed than its jackhammer predecessors,
'Challengers' is the sound of songwriters Carl Newman
and Dan BÉjar stretching out. In a recent Pitchfork interview, Newman rejected the power-pop label and suggested power-folk instead, and several songs on the
new album live up to it, particularly the luscious Neko
Case fronted ballads Go Places and Challengers.
That's not to say the band doesn't play anthems - it certainly does, but a rousing track like BÉjar's Myriad
Harbour is more imbued with the ghosts of Fred Neil
and Viv Stanshall than with the new-wave songsters of
yore. In general, Newman's songwriting is slightly more
scrutable this time around; his lyrics still ring with wry
perception and political metaphor, but betray some of
the magnanimity that comes with new love - our arms
fill with miracles, he writes in Go Places.
The sophisticated, rich production values and complex
range of songwriting will allow us to extend the New
Pornographers' audience to new groups: AAA radio listeners, fans of Neko's solo work, and coffee drinkers in
general. At the same time, the overflow of glorious pop
hooks and stompers like Heaven & Earth and Mutiny
will keep the existing fanbase in the groove. Our most
ambitious Buy Early, Get Now preorder promotion will
recruit those existing fans and deploy them online
months prior to street date, while allowing retailers to
sell the record at the same time.1. My Rights Versus

AcousTech Electronic Stylus Force Gauge
The Deluxe AcousTech gauge is set apart from the standard version by a full metal casing, AAA battery support, and a deluxe storage case. Includes mini screwdriver and calibration weight.
The AcousTech gauge will accurately read your tracking force within 0.002 grams, the finest reading available. Many imitators only read accuracy of 0.01 grams.
Accurate and simple to use - that's the essence of a great stylus force gauge, and that's what you get with this AcousTech model. We all know, or certainly we all should know, that dialing in your correct tracking force is absolutely essential for optimal record playback. If you miss on the heavy side, your sound becomes thick and sluggish. Miss on the light side, and your cartridge is more likely to mistrack and the sound will be light and anemic.
So stop messing with those mechanical stylus balances that aren't even accurate. This is one case where digital makes more sense when it comes to fine-tuning your analog.$79.99Electronic Stylus Force Gauge Buy Now

Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of SongFor his fifth album, Amos Lee took a different path for the recording, working in a new city with a new producer. Recording with Amos' road tested touring
band, the album was the first project to be recorded in a brand-new studio, built in a converted church in Nashville by producer JAY JOYCE (Emmylou
Harris, Little Big Town, Eric Church). The follow-up to 2011's chart-topping Mission Bell brings the artist into new sonic territory, while retaining the
trenchant impact of the scenes, characters, and stories in his writing. Joyce introduced a broader palette to Amos' work, creating a richness and a variety
that's never distracting or self-conscious. Being in Nashville also allowed several remarkable guests to come by the sessions including ALISON KRAUSS
and PATTY GRIFFIN lend heavenly vocals.
Amos' last album was a surprise entry at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and in an amazingly consistent career he's now sold a million albums over his first
four albums. With each album, Amos has deepened his connection to the Nashville community earning fans and performing with an A to Z of the country
world, from Lady Antebellum from Zac Brown. Making the album with a proven country hitmaker and doing a much-buzzed about showcase in Nashville in
June has furthered that cause. Major daytime and latenight TV looks, NPR looks, AAA domination, a series of high-profile synch placements and an
amazing sold out tour this fall and early next year will insure that there are drivers for this album well into 2014.1. Johnson Blvd.

Far Cry Primal: Original Game SoundtrackTwo-time BAFTA winning composer, Jason Graves has composed the original game soundtrack for the next exciting chapter in the award-winning Far Cry® franchise, Far Cry® Primal. Graves is renowned for his textural concept scores and cinematic orchestration on AAA titles such as Until Dawn, The Order: 1886, Evolve, Tomb Raider and Dead Space.
As a classically-trained composer and world percussionist, Graves created an entirely live organic score for Far Cry® Primal, blending a diverse array of sounds from the natural environment and incorporating many animal effects into the score. The evocative soundtrack features a unique set of textures representing each of the tribes that players will encounter, including a ram's horn and solo flute (Wenja); Aztec death whistles, female vocals, ritualistic percussion (Izilia); raw sounds from Far Cry's Stone Age natural environment including bushes, bones, antlers, clay pots, wooden artifacts and male vocals (Udam). Crafted together the sounds bring the rich and primal gameplay alive to players challenged to survive in a hostile environment and rise to become the apex predator.LP 1

The StormZZ Ward didn't have to look far for inspiration on her second full-length album, 2017's The Storm. Equally evocative of blues grit and hip-hop bounce, the Los Angeles-based vocal powerhouse and multi-instrumentalist leapt forward by taking a deeper look at some of her earliest inspirations including Howlin Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Vera Ward Hall and Big Mama Thornton.
For me, this album wasn't really about experimenting, she admits. It was more about simplicity, honing in on what I love about music and what makes me who I am as an artist. Growing up, I listened to a lot of hip-hop and blues, and I love those two genres so much. Sometimes, to evolve you don t need to go outside of yourself; you can reach further inside of yourself instead.
It s a realization earned over a whirlwind five years. The Fedora-rocking, guitar-shredding, harmonica-wielding blues siren peppered an old back porch musical recipe with hip-hop urgency and hashtaggable wisdom on her 2012 mixtape Eleven Roses. Followed by her full-length debut Til The Casket Drops yielded a veritable hit in the form of Put The Gun Down. The latter generated 7.4 million-plus Spotify streams and held strong in the Top 10 of AAA radio for 10 weeks as well as receiving over 100 high-profile licensing placements and syncs, including the feature film We re The Millers. Kendrick Lamar [ Cryin Wolf ] and Freddie Gibbs [ Criminal ] were quick to collaborate, while Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Elle, Interview Magazine, USA Today, NPR and more extolled her.1. Ghost

Bashed OutThis Is The Kit is the much beloved musical project of Kate Stables, born in England and based in Paris. Bashed Out is her band's third album, the result of an extended period collaboration with the record's producer Aaron Dessner (Sharon Van Etten, Local Natives). Dessner--the co-founder of the Brassland label--is best known for his work in The National. Indeed, the backing band he gathered for Bashed Out combines the talents of This Is The Kit's touring members (Rozi Plain, Jesse Vernon, Jamie Whitby-Coles), alongside a number of session players drawn from the Brooklyn music scene: Bryce Dessner, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming), Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) and Ben Lanz (Beirut, The National) all made key instrumental contributions. This music is honest, human and humane-a folky-lovely slow-rumble. It's rock but of the hangover-friendly, stoner variety; it's folk but at a groovy speed. As notable as the music, however, is front woman Kate Stables, whose voice hearkens back to the classic singer-songwriter era--her distinctive, cutting vocals up front in the mix. It's a self-confidence gained since her previous album, 2011's Wriggle Out the Restless, which made her band a minor institution in the United Kingdom, especially on the radio which has embraced the group. This Is The Kit has received across the board support from BBC 6 DJs Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie, Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, and Mary Anne Hobbs--receiving further play from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Jen & Ally, and Phil Taggart. Wonderful wonderful stuff, said DJ and Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, before arguing their last album should have made the Mercury Prize shortlist. The Line of Best Fit has already called This Is The Kit an essential fixture of British folk music for the past 10 years one of a handful of truly innovate songwriters working with the British folk template today. In America, however, the band is just building up to their breakout moment. Bruce Warren, program director at influential American AAA station WXPN has praised Stables' "warm and gorgeous voice" and we expect similar notices to come across on this new LP. From Kate's earliest year growing up in the UK town of Winchester, she learned that great art takes time. In some ways the place I grew up is defined by being a Roman Saxon medieval cathedral city, she explains. They started building the Winchester Cathedral a thousand years ago and they've been working on it ever since. It's an exciting moment to join This Is The Kit's continuing musical evolution into a synesthetic, shape-shifting entity-rooted in folk but encompassing elements of psychedelia, alternative rock, and electronic textures and sensibilities.1.

Too Blessed To Be StressedToo Blessed To Be Stressed stakes out new territory for the popular roots-rock songwriter and performer. In the past, I've told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life, the former prizefighter and literal son of a preacher man offers. This time, I've written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and I've done it with a purpose: to make people feel good. I don't think I could have written anthemic songs like this if I hadn't made my last album, Thorn says of 2012's What the Hell is Goin On? Like 2010's autobiographical Pimps & Preachers, it was among its year's most played albums on Americana radio and contributed to Thorn's rapidly growing fan base. And Thorn followed that airplay success with his current AAA-radio hit version of Doctor My Eyes from April 2014's Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson Browne. It helps that those big vocal hooks on Too Blessed To Be Stressed are being reinforced by the sound of Thorn's flexible and dynamic band, as they have been doing for years in concert. During their two decades in the club, theater and festival trenches, the four-piece and their frontman have garnered a reputation for shows that ricochet from humor to poignancy to knock-out rock n roll. These guys really bring my songs to life, says Thorn. A lot of albums sound like they're made by a singer with bored studio musicians. My albums sound they're played by a real blood-and-guts band because that s what we are. And when we get up on stage, people hear and see that.1. Everything's Gonna Be Alright
