    "Such a breath of fresh air." - Pitchfork


    Following the dissolution of his groundbreaking collage-pop duo, the Books, Zammuto rebounded with an eponymous debut album submerged in transitional anxiety and audio effects designed to intentionally obscure the very humanistic qualities that marked Nick Zammuto's best work in the
    Books. It was in many ways the most essential album of his career, in that it established his post-Books path and introduced him to a new group of musicians (most notably renowned percussionist Sean Dixon) who have immeasurably contributed to the creative inspiration and execution of his most compelling work to date, the aptly titled Anchor.


    An enormous weight has been lifted from Nick Zammuto, and you can hear as much in the opening minutes of Anchor. The arrangements have more space, the songs are more dynamic, and the vocals are delivered with a confident intimacy that is almost alarmingly beautiful (the collaborations with the enchanting Daniela Gesundheit of Canadian indie-pop duo Snowblink are particularly transcendent).


    Written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely at home in Zammuto's converted tractor garage recording studio (pictured on the front cover) using an expanding array of vintage analog outboard equipment, Anchor embodies the very DIY lifestyle and self-sufficient approach that has
    come to define all that is Zammuto. His is a rarified art made on its own terms - far away from the insular feedback loop of trend cycles and commodified expectations. His home is his anchor, and Anchor is his home.

    Anchors

    Featuring Special Guest Sheryl Crow On Little Bit Of Rust

    "I hit a wall," says Will Hoge. "I was doing the best touring of my career and I had a great, steady gig writing songs, but I was falling out of love with being in a band. I had to figure out what was next."

    For Hoge, what came next was a quest to reclaim the joy and the magic that had drawn him to music in the first place. He let his band go and hit the road for roughly a year of solo shows, crisscrossing the country by himself with just a guitar and a keyboard. He felt rejuvenated by the freedom and began writing material that reenergized him, that made him feel like a kid falling in love with rock and roll all over again. Those songs ignited a dormant flame somewhere deep within his soul, and now they form the bulk of Anchors, his strongest and most nuanced album to date.

    Recorded with an all-star band comprised of drummer Jerry Roe (Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Darius Rucker), bassist Dominic Davis (Jack White, Wanda Jackson), and guitarists Brad Rice (Son Volt, Ryan Adams) and Thom Donovan (Lapush, Ruby Amanfu), the album is a prime showcase for Hoge's soaring, gritty vocals, as well as his remarkable gift for crafting complex characters with real emotional depth and plainspoken profundity. Over the course of eleven tracks (including one with special guest Sheryl Crow), Hoge weaves elements of vintage country, literate folk, and heartland rock into a passionate, genre-busting masterpiece, one that offers an unflinching portrait of the messy challenges of adulthood and the ways in which we persevere (or don't) through hard times.

    Beginning with the release of his acclaimed 2001 debut, Carousel, Hoge established himself as a masterful songwriter and performer as well as a critical favorite, with Rolling Stone comparing him to Bob Seger and John Mellencamp and NPR praising his "sharp, smart, passionate rock 'n' roll that seems to exist out of time." He built up a loyal fanbase the old fashioned way, maintaining a steady studio output and a relentless touring schedule of more than 200 shows a year, including bills with the likes of My Morning Jacket, the Black Crowes, and Drive-By Truckers, in addition to festival slots from Bonnaroo to Austin City Limits. In 2012, the Eli Young Band hit #1 on the Billboard Country chart with their Platinum-selling recording of Hoge's song "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," earning Hoge nominations for CMA, ACM, and GRAMMY Awards. Soon he was performing everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to The Late Show with David Letterman, his music was soundtracking a high-profile Chevy truck campaign, and he'd signed a major publishing deal.

    When the inspiration ran dry, though, Hoge took a gamble on himself and walked away from it all in order to pursue the kind of art that truly moved him, to make something that mattered. If Anchors is any indication, it was a safe bet indeed.

    Hey Eugene!

    Pink Martini, the genre-bending, best-selling, supremely talented, and raucously fun twelve-piece ensemble returns with Hey Eugene!, a twelve-track sonic journey anchored by deft songwriting and a no-holds-barred dose of cabaret showmanship. Delivered with sultry grace by lead singer China Forbes, Hey Eugene! shines throughout from the golden-era Hollywood melody of Everywhere to the French cabaret of Ojala. Other collaborations anchor the set as well: the pan-world Dosvedanya, Mio Bombino with its Latin-meets-Russian beat and globetrotting subject matter, plus the Forbes-Lauderdale-penned sexy sway of City of Night. Hey Eugene! is an exhilarating album full of uncompromising musicianship, hope, beauty and joy!

    Allas Sak

    Dungen frontman/mastermind Gustav Ejstes has been making music for nearly twenty years-at first for himself, then eventually and inevitably for all of us. As a teenager in rural Sweden, he became obsessed with hip-hop and sampling, and eventually, 60s pop and psychedelia. He took up guitar and bass, drums and keyboard and even flute, then took to his grandmother's basement to put it all on tape. It's been five years since the last Dungen album, 2010's Skit I Allt, which is by far the longest interval between releases for a band that proved especially prolific and inspired during the 2000s. Allas Sak picks up where Dungen's previous album left off, but somehow it sounds bolder and livelier, feistier yet more focused. Allas Sak is about everyday matters: family, friends, the fine texture of life. Common but never mundane, these subjects anchor the music in the here and now, while the music lends a certain grandeur to ordinary moments.

    The Naive Shaman

    Richard Youngs has been making music for over two decades. The Naive Shaman, released in dual format (cd and lp), is a deeply personal work. Created on a computer at home, it is a high density digital song cycle driven by heavy, heavy electric bass guitar.


    The opening Life On A Beam combines a modal vocal line with throbbing sonics and non-linear percussion. Elsewhere a plaintive voice threads itself through frosted atmospherics and we hear Richard's first recorded kazoo work since 1992's New Angloid Sound. At the core of the album is Sonar In My Soul, a bass loop on to which are collaged strangulated guitar, singing and more singing. The track climaxes in a hollered plea for unity. The second half of the set contrasts Once It Was Autumn, a succintly crafted dub chant, with the epic Summer's Edge II, whose sprawling 16 minutes anchor a floating vocal melody and free-flowing drums with fuzzed bass octaves.


    At a time when he has increased his commitment to live performance, Richard has--paradoxically--produced an album that explores recording technology as an instrument, a work where song is modulated by sound. By critics and true music fans everywhere, Youngs has been deemed the king of the progressive minimalists. He has now released seven full-length records in addition to multiple collaborations with other artists such as Makoto Kawabata (of Acid Mothers Temple fame), Simon Wickham-Smith and Neil Campbell.

    Electronic Sound Constructions

    A hypnotic, transcendent document that generates the warm analogue hum we've all come to associate with the Bristol Sound. The ESC recordings are characterized by distant vintage synth drones anchored by looped, jazzy drumming; both are underpinned by the golden, haunting emanation of vinyl taching at 16RPM... coalescing beautifully as immaculately stoned rhythm in the background.

    Interspheres Atmospheres

    Recorded in Horus Sound Studio in Hannover, Germany under the direction of producer Fabio Trentini (Guano Apes, H-Blockx) frontman Hessler, guitarist Thomas Zipner, Sebastian Wagner (bass), and drummer Moritz MÜller have delivered 12 songs with such originality on their second album, Interspheres Atmospheres, that it makes it hard to place them into just one category.


    They mix art rock with alternative, throw in a bit of spring reverb that floats the psychedelic guitars and creates a sound that is beyond hippie beatitude. With all their infatuation with experimentation, The Intersphere have never let themselves be distracted from the essence of a good song: fabricating melodies that anchor themselves a little deeper into your subconscious the more often you hear them.


    In short, Interspheres Atmospheres is an album that sounds as if Pink Floyd and The Police got together and talked about concept albums and perfect drummers and exchanged the recipe for the perfect song at the end of the night. 180g 2LP with CD in paper sleeve.

    Shine On

    Three Time Grammy Winner and legendary singer songwriter makes her Verve debut with her eighth studio album, SHINE ON. Sarah has sold over 40
    million albums in her career and is one of the most respected female artists in music today.


    The new album was recorded in Vancouver with longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand (the co-writer of hits like Adia and Building a
    Mystery), along with contributions from producer/songwriter Bob Rock (Michael BublÉ, Nelly Furtado) and keyboardist Vincent Jones.


    In a press release, McLachlan revealed that the album was inspired by her father's passing and her own appreciation of life: "This album is about moving
    through the second half of my life in a more mindful and meaningful way, recognizing that every day, every moment is precious and though we all have
    our issues and problems, our damages, we all have the ability to continue to learn, grow from our experiences, thrive and shine on. Many of the songs are
    inspired at least partially or wholly by my father's passing three years ago and the profound effect losing him had on me. I had to find my footing again
    without the anchor of his unconditional love.

    This Year's Model

    180 Gram Vinyl


    Elvis Costello's follow-up to his debut release is now on 180 gram vinyl re-mastered from the original master tapes. This was Elvis's first album with The Attractions and includes the songs "Pump It Up," "I Don't Want To Go To (Chelsea)" and "Radio, Radio."


    Stylistically versatile, deeply varied, and melodically catchy, this where Costello came into his ownand where the chemistry between virtuosic keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Bruce Thomas, and drummer Pete Thomas produced one of rocks best groups. A dynamic maelstrom of emotional spite, bitter frustration, sexual angst, and caustic political commentary, the 1978 set boosted Costellos star and yielded innumerable standards: the undying MOR protest Radio Radio, fervent Pump It Up, smart (I Dont Want to Go to) Chelsea, and spunky No Action are all here. While often cited as Costellos angry record,


    This Years Model has more to do with disappointments and denials. The album bursts forth with a savage energy not possible without the Attractions, which are responsible for the songs being built from the ground up. Where Costellos voice and twangy guitar dominate My Aim Is True, here, sizzling rhythms and Nieves colorful organ runs anchor the foundations. This is a group effort, with Costellos biting lyrics taking chances and forcing the listener to mull double meanings all the while the music zooms by at a fast clip.

    Popstrangers are Joel Flyger, Adam Page and David Larson, three native New Zealanders who make pop music that's hard-driving, punk-influenced and sonically inimitable. After releasing several singles on fabled New Zealand label Flying Nun, the band arrives with their debut album Antipodes. Recorded in the basement of a 1930's dancehall, Popstrangers' first full-length features dissonant, claustrophobic melodies, anchored by the languid affectations of Flyger's vocals, that bring a vintage feel to their decidedly contemporary garage rock.

    Songs

    I just wanted to write really good songs, and with that outlook, everything else is a perk. -John Fullbright


    That plainspoken approach is part of what's fueled the young Oklahoman's
    remarkable rise. It was just two years ago that Fullbright released his debut studio
    album, From The Ground Up, to a swarm of critical acclaim from such notable
    sources as LA Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR-to say nothing of his GRAMMY
    Nomination for Best Americana Album.


    But for Fullbright, it hasn't been all the acclaim that means the most to him, but
    rather his entrance into a community of songwriters whose work he admires.
    When I started out, I was all by myself in a little town in Oklahoma where whatever
    you wanted, you just made it yourself, he explains. One of the most fulfilling
    things about the last two years is that now I'm surrounded by like-minded people
    in a community of peers.


    The arrangements on Songs are stripped down to their cores and free of ornamentation. Fullbright's guitar and piano anchor the
    record, while a minimalist rhythm section weaves in and out throughout the album. The performances are stark and direct,
    though, a deliberate approach meant to deliver the songs in their purest and most honest form. Fullbright inhabits his songs' narrators completely, his old-soul voice fleshing out complex characters and subtle narratives with a gifted sense of understatement.


    To be sure, Songs has its moments of darkness, tracks born from pain and heartbreak, but for a craftsman like Fullbright, there
    are few greater joys than carving emotion into music, taking a stab at that lofty goal of immortality through song.

    Hail To The Thief

    45 RPM


    Radiohead's 2003 release Hail To The Thief borrows equally from OK Computer's epic progressive rock and Kid A's skittering electronic theatrics while using eloquent metaphors and complicated arrangements to express the uncertainty, fear and anger arising from the 2000 U.S. presidential election and a post-9/11 world. The occasional hard-grooving funk rhythm and crazed rock guitar riff keeps even the airiest sentiments well anchored though, making Hail To The Thief as well balanced as it is progressive.

    Almost Holy: Original Soundtrack

    After the collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of Ukraine's youth wound up
    homeless and addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol.
    Steve Hoover's documentary Almost Holy follows a pastor named Gennadiy
    Mokhnenko, who saves street kids, at times by forcible abduction, and brings
    them to his Pilgrim Republic rehabilitation center.


    The film's depiction of a
    country in the grip of poverty, addiction, and warfare is made even more powerful
    by its captivating electronic score by award-winning composer Atticus Ross,
    his brother Leopold Ross, and Bobby Krlic (The Haxan Cloak).


    "Occasionally a project comes along where one feels compelled to contribute,"
    Atticus said of seeing the early footage that convinced him to work on the film.
    "It's a different world over there - of course we have dire poverty in the U.S. - but
    to see an army of drug-addicted children living in those conditions, children the
    same age as my own, under ten years old but covered in track marks and sleeping
    on sewers to stay warm, and someone is asking you to write a little music to help
    the cause. It would be hard to find a reason not to."


    His collaborators felt the same way, and the trio soon began work on the score
    - the Ross brothers in the U.S. and Krlic in the U.K. The distance meant the composers
    initially worked separately, but in the end, the soundtrack feels remarkably
    coherent.


    The message and content of film kept the trio inspired, and once Krlic had
    emigrated to the U.S., they met at Atticus' studio and continued to work on the
    album as a free-standing piece. The film remained the anchor and the catalyst for
    their creativity, but several of the tracks on the record don't appear in the picture
    at all. Almost Holy is thus not simply a soundtrack album, but a soundtrack and
    an album, one that both enriches its film and stands apart from it.

    This Year's Model

    Ranked 98/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The first record he made with his legendary backing band the Attractions, This Years Model is Elvis Costellos most explosive and urgent album. Picking up where his fine My Aim Is True left off, the British singer/guitarist blasts through 13 excellent tracks with the fervent purpose and headlong pace of someone who has a cab waiting for him outside.


    Stylistically versatile, deeply varied, and melodically catchy, this where Costello came into his ownand where the chemistry between virtuosic keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Bruce Thomas, and drummer Pete Thomas produced one of rocks best groups. A dynamic maelstrom of emotional spite, bitter frustration, sexual angst, and caustic political commentary, the 1978 set boosted Costellos star and yielded innumerable standards: the undying MOR protest Radio Radio, fervent Pump It Up, smart (I Dont Want to Go to) Chelsea, and spunky No Action are all here.


    While often cited as Costellos angry record, This Years Model has more to do with disappointments and denials. The album bursts forth with a savage energy not possible without the Attractions, which are responsible for the songs being built from the ground up. Where Costellos voice and twangy guitar dominate My Aim Is True, here, sizzling rhythms and Nieves colorful organ runs anchor the foundations. This is a group effort, with Costellos biting lyrics taking chances and forcing the listener to mull double meanings all the while the music zooms by at a fast clip.


    More than 30 years after its original release, This Years Model will still leave you breathless. Railing against unachievable desires, Costello and company delight in the anguish, and spit such torment back out in the form of hook-ridden music that functions as a brilliant form of situational confirmation and emotional catharsis.


    Half-speed mastered from the original tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition 180-gram LP brings This Years Models vicious songs to the forefront like never before. Punchier, gutsier, and livelier than any of the myriad CD remasters, this analog edition offers a transparent window onto the Attractions' loose interplay, Nieve's carnivalesque organ work, and rabid pounce of the Thomas-Thomas rhythm section. Here, for the first time, are previously buried tones, textures, and details. It took years to happen, but this is how This Years Model was always supposed to sound.
