    Over the past 20 years Tiger Army have made themselves a household name in the sub-culture and
    punk rock communities. They've toured the world over countless times, sharing the stage with Morrissey,
    AFI, Social Distortion and more. They've appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and have headlined many
    punk rock / rockabilly festivals such as The Hootnanny. With four full-length albums, and three EPS
    Tiger Army have sold over 430,000 albums to date.


    It's been almost ten years since their last release, but Tiger Army are back and stronger than ever with
    their heavily anticipated new album, V. The album was produced by Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem,
    Flogging Molly, The Bouncing Souls) and includes 13 tracks that showcase the band doing what they do
    best, fusing elements of punk, rock, and rockabilly. V is the album critics and fans have been hoping for.
    Tiger Army is alive and well, and V proves that the band is still just getting started, even after 20 years.

    Burials

    Multiplatinum alt-rock band AFI release their highly anticipated new album Burials.


    Rolling Stone described the albums first single I Hope You Suffer as an epic song, layering [lead vocalist Davey] Havok's anguished cries within a lightning storm of distortion, synthetic orchestrations, and volcanic percussion.


    AFI perform and preview new songs from Burials during their North American tour, which kicks off September 12th, 2013 in Minneapolis.


    Burials is AFI's ninth full-length studio album and first for Republic Records. The Cali-based band recorded the album with producer Gil Norton (Pixies,
    Patti Smith, Foo Fighters) at East West Studios in Los Angeles. The record was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers).


    In other news, a remix of the first single 17 Crimes will serve as the end title track to the film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
    Since the release of 1995's debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI have written and recorded five top ten hit singles (Miss Murder,
    Medicate, Love Like Winter, Silver and Gold, Girl's Not Grey), hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered
    critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal international following whose members number in the millions.

    Dreamcar

    In the summer of 2014, No Doubt s Tony Kanal [bass], Tom Dumont [guitar], and Adrian Young [drums] and singer Davey Havok [AFI, Blakq Audio] began writing and demoing music together. Without telling a soul outside of their significant others, the four musicians clandestinely moved into a cramped downtown Los Angeles rehearsal spot and revved up what would become DREAMCAR. The result of this collaboration is their self-titled debut album, DREAMCAR, produced by Tim Pagnotta [Neon Trees], with whom the band found a kindred spirit.


    The band's name actually reflects their ambitions. DREAMCAR speaks to a nostalgia, but as much as it speaks to the past, it also speaks to the present and the future, singer Davey Havok says. It mirrors hopes, aspirations, and attaining the unattainable. I would hope the songs do the same thing. Rife with shimmering guitar tones, percussive slap bass, bombastic drums, and a neon-lit dancefloor dreaminess, DREAMCAR gleefully nods to the decade of Boy George and Back to the Future through a kaleidoscope of wisdom earned from three decades creating and connecting with fans worldwide.


    The first single Kill For Candy instantly enchants with its upbeat energy and sweet, saccharine chant punctuated by a twisting and turning guitar and driving rhythms. The album swings between the Frankie Goes To Hollywood-style risquÉ spoken narrative of On The Charts to the delicate longing of the synth-washed Slip On The Moon where Havok pleads, Just look for me, I will look for you. Born To Lie builds from a breathy verse into an expansive refrain, while the opener After I Confess sees his hypnotic and haunting vocal soar over airy and open soundscapes. Ultimately, it's that combination of delectable and dangerous which will leave listeners everywhere satisfied. This is a big moment for us, Kanal leaves off. It's a new beginning. We can't wait to perform the songs live.

    Bahamas Is Afie


    His voice and his guitar playing merge with a lush beauty. - NPR Fresh Air


    A sublime, incomparable leading man, one with a soulful, sweet and stylish touch in his song-writing. - Globe and Mail


    Brushfire Records is set to release the third full-length album from Afie Jurvanen, who performs as Bahamas. The new release, Bahamas
    Is Afie, is the first self-produced album from the Ontario-based musician. With this record he pursued a far more complex sound than on prior releases
    and is responsible for the majority of the instrumentation. The album follows 2011's Barchords, which was praised for being a reserved yet melodically
    rewarding exploration of rewarding exploration of relationships and heartache by The New Yorker.


    SPIN recently premieredAll The Time, the first pre-release track from the album. The first radio single Stronger Than That will go to radio mid-July.
    Jurvanen sought to create and produce a more developed arrangement of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion, and chamber choruses on
    Bahamas Is Afie. Prior to this record, Jurvanen's releases have all been sparsely recorded bedroom records with this new album making a transition to a
    more complex and fully arranged collection of music.


    Jurvanen's debut album Pink Strat was released in 2009. The record was nominated for both a Juno Award and the Polaris Music Prize. Bahamas hit the
    road for two years after the release, touring with artists such as Wilco and Robert Plant. In 2011 he released Barchords, which was nominated for two
    Juno Awards including Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of The Year and was named Best Singer/Songwriter Album of 2012 by iTunes.
    Wall Street Journal praised the record as bluesy and hypnotic, and The Los Angeles Times called is a delightfully rare kind of record that commands an
    instant replay.

    Earthtones

    Bahamas, the easy-going alias of Toronto-based singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen, is returning with his first LP in four years. His new album Earthtones will be released via Brushfire/Republic Records, following up his 2014 record Bahamas is Afie.


    Largely recorded in a compact, three-day session, Jurvanen finds himself joined by drummer James Gadson and bassist Pino Palladino, who separately have supported the likes of Beck and John Mayer, and together played alongside D'Angelo for his superlative comeback album, Black Messiah. The inclusion of the Vanguard members illuminates the grounded qualities that have always always been just beneath the surface of Bahamas' breezy music.

    The Girl on the Train is an American thriller drama film from 2016 directed by Tate Taylor and written by Erin Cressida Wilson, based on Paula Hawkins' New York Times No. 1 bestselling debut novel.

    The Score is composed and conducted by Grammy Award Winner Danny Elfman. One of his most famous compositions is the theme to the animated TV show The Simpsons. He also composed the Original Soundtrack of the recent film Goosebumps and the film classic Big Fish.

    First Pressing Of 750 Individually Numbered Copies 180 Gram On Red Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter

    Based on the graphic novel of the same name, M*A*S*H from 1970 is one of the most commercially and critically successful films in television history. After the release of the film a spinoff series was released and gained as much as success.

    The film displays the setting of the 4077th MASH, located just three miles from the front line in Uijeongbu, where the doctors and nurses perform meatball surgery and otherwise do what they can to patch up the physical (and, occasionally, psychological) wounds of the conflict's casualties while staving off their own fear, stress, boredom and fatigue by fair means or foul.

    Johnny Mandel's work on the soundtrack largely involved arranging period tunes and effect music (especially military and football-related themes), although he also wrote a memorable main title theme.

    Song from M*A*S*H (Suicide Is Painless) is written by Johnny Mandel (music) and Mike Altman (lyrics), which was the theme song for both the movie and TV series M*A*S*H. Mike Altman is the son of the original film's director, Robert Altman, and was 14 years old when he wrote the song's lyrics.

    Several instrumental versions of the song were used as the theme for the TV series. It became a number one hit in the UK Singles Chart in May 1980. The song was ranked #66 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs.

    Barchords (Awaiting Repress)

    Bahamas is the moniker for Afie Jurvanen (pronounced AY-fee), a highly sought after musician who spent three years as a guitarist/pianist for Feist among others. Barchords is Bahamas' sophomore album and follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 debut Pink Strat which received nominations for a Juno award and a 2010 Polaris Music Prize.


    Much like its predecessor, the 12 songs on Barchords defy simple categorization. Jurvanen's vocal delivery and masterful playing create a distinctive sound that is both subtle and intense. His soulful folk features sparse arrangements where the space is as powerful as the performance, accentuating the impact of the songs.


    From the understated blues of the opening track Lost In The Light to the pop-infused Caught Me Thinking to the classic standard feel of Time and Time Again, the songs on Barchords continue to reveal themselves far beyond the literal interpretation of the lyrics upon first listen.

    Reckon

    Political. Personal. Poetic. Such is the new album Reckon from one of Canada's most renowned songwriters, Jason Collett. Recorded at Revolution Recording Studios in Toronto, the album was produced by Howie Beck and includes guest appearances by Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas), Basia Bulat, Kevin Drew and Zeus. An 11-song retrospective titled Essential Cuts will be released as a companion to Reckon as a digital download in the vinyl package. Chosen by Jason himself Essential Cuts represent the sense of community that he has always held in such high regard.


    There is a poetic serendipity to the fact that Jason Collett started recording Reckon during the same month that Occupy Wall Street began. Not necessarily setting out to make a record with these overtones, his travels and political engagements lead to the subject matter being unavoidable. "The consistent thread throughout this record is loss," he explains. "The love songs are largely emotive reflections of the 'political' songs. All written through the distillation of events since the economic calamity of 2008 and it's insidiously long looming shadow. I've seen first hand the kind of devastation this crisis has wrecked upon much of the world I've toured these last few years. The shut-down-shops and foreclosed homes on the suburban fringes as I've made my way to and from cities I've played. This record is a personal reflection of the crisis we've all witnessed and read about every day in the paper. Calling it Reckon is an acknowledgement of loss ... lost jobs, lost homes, loss of faith in our political and financial institutions and in turn, loss of illusion."


    The Essential Cuts album is more or less a family affair featuring everyone from Amy Millan (Stars), Zeus, Feist, Emily Haines (Metric), Bahamas and more as well as production from long time friends Andrew Cash and Howie Beck. Collett reflects, "With a little help from my friends indeed...There is a revolving door cast of characters that make this a sweet selection of the back catalogue. The myriad of producers and players that have graced these recordings are a testament to the blessed incestuousness of the musical family I'm lucky to be part of."

    Loyalty

    The record was called Loyalty from the beginning-it was the first decision I made about it. It's a word you
    usually see written in copperplate script, a virtue: LOYALTY. But the songs don't treat it that way, just as a
    thing to unpack. It's a force that you have to reckon with: loyalty to the dream, to the "work," to the mythical idea of "you" that somebody thought they saw. It can be a weakness as much as a strength; it can keep you from the reality of your own life, your own self. - Tamara Lindeman


    In excess virtue lies danger, or at least limits to pragmatic action-it's a lesson hard learned by anyone
    disillusioned by the erosion of youthful mythologies. Strict fealty to a fixed ideal of identity doesn't do us
    any favors as adults. Loyalty, the third and finest album yet by The Weather Station (and the first for
    Paradise of Bachelors) wrestles with these knotty notions of faithfulness/faithlessness-to our idealism,
    our constructs of character, our memories, and to our family, friends, and lovers-representing a bold
    step forward into new sonic and psychological inscapes. It's a natural progression for Toronto artist
    Tamara Lindeman's acclaimed songwriting practice. Recorded at La Frette Studios just outside Paris in
    the winter of 2014, in close collaboration with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist),
    the record crystallizes her lapidary songcraft into eleven emotionally charged vignettes and intimate
    portraits, redolent of fellow Canadians Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and David Wiffen, but utterly her
    own.


    Lindeman describes La Frette, housed in an enormous, crumbling 19th-century mansion, as
    "a secret garden, a place of enchantment and grace": walls mantled in ivy and lions, corridors piled high
    with discarded tape machines, old reels, and priceless guitars. As she puts it, "Recording where we did
    meant we embraced beauty-we weren't afraid of it being beautiful." Like the record itself, it's a quietly
    radical statement, especially since certain passages achieve a diaphanous eeriness and harmonic and
    rhythmic tension new to The Weather Station. The stacked vocal harmonies of "Tapes," the drifting,
    jazz-inflected chording in "Life's Work," and the glacial percussion in "Personal Eclipse" contribute to a
    pervading sense of clock-stopping bloom and smolder, recalling the spooky avant-soul of Terry Callier's
    Occasional Rain.


    Beyond the decaying decadence and vintage gear, the brokedown palace atmosphere of
    La Frette afforded a more significant interior luxury as well, one stated with brutal honesty in the
    stunning "Shy Women": "it seemed to me that luxury would be to be not so ashamed, not to look away."


    Accordingly, Loyalty brings a freshly unflinching self-examining gaze and emotional and musical control
    to The Weather Station's songs. She is an extraordinary singer and instrumentalist-on Loyalty she plays
    guitar, banjo, keys, and vibes-but Lindeman has always been a songwriter's songwriter, recognized for
    her intricate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, ambiguities, and complex metaphors.
    Though more moving than ever, her writing here is almost clinical in its discipline, its deliberate wording
    and exacting delivery, evoking similarly idiosyncratic songsters from Linda Perhacs to Bill Callahan.


    Outside her musical practice, Lindeman also happens to be an accomplished film and
    television actor, and it's her directorial eye for quietly compelling characters and the rich details of the
    everyday, Bressonian in its specificity and scope, that drives the limpid singularity of The Weather
    Station's songs. As in Bresson's films, there is no trace of theater here, no brittle singer-songwriter
    histrionics, but rather a powerful performative focus and narrative restraint, a commitment to what the
    auteur called the "simultaneous precision and imprecision of music." Despite the descriptive delicacy, the
    album never lapses into preciousness or sentimentality, instead retaining its barbs and bristles and
    remaining resolutely clear-eyed and thick-skinned. Lyrically, Loyalty inverts and involutes the language
    of confession, of regret, of our most private and muddled mental feelings, by externalizing those
    anxieties through exquisite observation of the things and people we accumulate, the modest meanings
    accreted during even our most ostensibly mundane domestic moments. ("Your trouble is like a lens," she
    discerns in "I Mined," "through which the whole world bends.")


    "Tapes" and "I Could Only Stand By" expose and exalt the quotidian-"the little tapes"
    hidden beneath a lover's bed, "the sunken old moorings" at the "bruise-colored lake"-without romanticizing
    these scenes of, respectively, grief and guilt. "Like Sisters" analyzes the darker contours of a
    friendship with devastating scrutiny. The breathless momentum of "Way It Is, Way It Could Be"-"both
    are," she sings of the way we sometimes live, for better or for worse, amid multiple truths-hinges on a
    mysterious moment when two brown dogs die underwheel, then don't, and that gut-sickness is
    overturned, a sin redeemed with a second glance. "Floodplain" and "Personal Eclipse" are also road songs
    about traveling through, and owning, the empty places in-between, literally and figuratively-what
    Lindeman deems "the various ways people try to disappear from themselves, in physical distance, in
    politeness."


    To invoke Melville (author of PoB's namesake story), "extreme loyalty to the piety of love"
    can be a destabilizing force, a kind of bondage from which we must emancipate ourselves. The line is
    from his strange masterpiece Pierre, or the Ambiguities; The Weather Station's Loyalty could quite easily
    support the same subtitle for the fascinating ways it navigates the deep canyons between certainty and
    uncertainty, faith and doubt.
