    Charmer

    Between the power pop melodies of early Saves the Day and the hard driving
    folk rhythms of Fleetwood Mac lies TIGERS JAW, a band who's raw immediacy
    is infectious and intoxicating. Shimmering organ textures, chunky guitar chords,
    and male/female vocal harmonies show the Scranton, PA natives taking rural
    rock music from its legendary past to its vibrant future. Among the more innovative acts on Run For Cover Record's star studded roster, TIGERS JAW have a
    profound musical purity that is as equally stirring in a basement of 40 people as
    it is in a club of 1,000.

    Charmer

    The long awaited new album from Aimee Mann, Charmer, will be released on Superego Records. Influenced by what Mann calls the super pop of the 70s and 80s, the album is her first release since 2008's celebrated @#%&*! Smilers. Of Charmer, her eighth studio album, Mann comments, I'm fascinated by charming people and the whole idea of charm. It's hard to remember sometimes that there is usually an agenda behind the act of being charming, and that is what I'm most interested in. Is someone's charm being utilized just to try and entertain people, make them feel special and interesting, or is there a more sinister purpose behind it? Sometimes I think 'charm' can just be another word for 'manipulation.' The album also includes a duet with James Mercer of The Shins on Living a Lie. Mann will support the new album with tour dates this fall.

    The Bearer of Bad News

    There's an innate stillness and depth to Andy Shauf's music-a quiet, riveting strength that subtly steals its way into a listener's bones. He's a storyteller: a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness,
    small-town heroes and smaller-town killers. Throughout his forthcoming album The Bearer of Bad News-a co-release with Party Damage Records-he studies the universal through two to five-minute microcosms, spinning tales as few others can, where accidental, redemptive victories (the jaunty charmer "Hometown Hero") stir alongside evocative, heartrending tales of self-doubt and lost loves ("I'm Not Falling Asleep," or the achingly beautiful "Covered In Dust" ). The Saskatchewan native's tender, singular tenor guides the way over
    muted instrumentation of softly-strummed guitars, dampened drums, weathered piano, and clarinet, which lends its unique timbre to frequently brighten-or hauntingly underscore-the songs' darker undercurrents.

    Junk

    "On the last album, there was too much of me." That's how Anthony
    Gonzalez - the sonic auteur behind that most sublime purveyor of
    symphonic-indie-electronic-dream pop, M83, describes the primary
    inspiration behind his forthcoming album Junk, released on April 8 by Mute.
    Highly anticipated, Junk is not just M83's first studio artist album in half
    a decade; it's also the follow-up to Hurry Up, We're Dreaming - which
    upon release in 2011 put M83 in the direct current of the mainstream. So
    why would Gonzalez try to remove himself from its follow-up and supplant
    himself with the surprising likes of Beck and Steve Vai. Wait, Steve Vai?
    The legendary virtuoso guitar hero who defined an era? On a M83 album in
    2016?


    In trying to "remove" his identifiable musical presence, ironically Gonzalez
    may have made one of his most personal efforts yet in Junk and with no
    compromise. With Junk, M83 has succeeded in making what Gonzalez
    called "an organized mess - a collection of songs that aren't made to live
    with each other, yet somehow work together. From album opener "Do It
    Try It", a fractured yet catchy m√Člange of old-school house music pianos
    and pop-art bubblegum hooks worthy of ABBA, to "Moon Crystal," an
    instrumental whose mutant retro-futurist grooves evoke Genesis doing a
    prog-disco remix of the Love Boat theme, to the smooth new wave-meets-electro-funk
    workout "Time Wind" (featuring vocals by Beck) to "Go!", an
    exultant synth-pop charmer featuring vocals from new M83 collaborator
    Mai Lan and guitar solo from legendary shredder, Steve Vai, one thing is
    perfectly clear: "Every time I make a M83 album, I'm trying to do it on my
    own terms - and it's the same for this one," Gonzalez says. "Whatever I do,
    whatever influences I have, it ends up sounding like me. As a musician, I'm
    just trying to take you somewhere else, beyond your world."

    Gone Troppo

    Remastered From The Original Analogue Master Tapes And Cut At Capitol Studios To Ensure Exceptional Audio Quality Throughout


    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Gone Troppo, issued on Dark Horse Records in November 1982, would prove to be Harrison s last studio album for five years, during which he largely took an extended hiatus from his recording career. The album title, Gone Troppo, was an Australian slang expression meaning 'gone mad/crazy' and also a reference to the Italian term 'non troppo', used in tempo markings and meaning 'not too much'. Billboard said of Gone Troppo: 'Harrison's sunny lyricism shines brightest when least encumbered by self-consciousness, and here that equation yields a breezy, deceptively eclectic charmer.'

    Pressed On Turquoise Blue Vinyl


    Recorded with producer and longtime collaborator Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, spin is the inaugural release from Black Cement Records, a new imprint under Atlantic Records.


    spin sees Walsh and Collins trading off lead vocals which glow with sincerity on this collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics.Tracks such as Guardian, June, and Escape Plan shine on spin, which follows TIGERS JAW's 2014 critically adored LP, Charmer. ...The sound of a band bravely moving forward, declared Pitchfork while Stereogum applauded Walsh and Collins', ...soul-baring lyrical honesty, adding, TIGERS JAW are a revelation... Profoundly personal and vibrantly textured, spin exhibits Walsh and Collins' remarkable ability to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment through melody and introspection.

    Ultima II Massage

    TOBACCO can't have nice things.


    On his third album, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer deepens his approach
    to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage widens a jagged swath through the dude's
    own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to
    some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state. "I spent a lot of time
    breaking it in all the right places," says TOBACCO. "It ends up making the whole
    thing breathe - sometimes gasp for air. It feels more alive." Immediately after
    nishing 2010's Maniac Meat, he went to work on the beat-addled series begun
    with Fucked Up Friends in 2008. There were notable breaks en route to now - a
    surprising commission to remix White Zombie's "Thunder Kiss '65," a new BMSR
    record (Cobra Juicy), and producing Demon Queen's Exorcise Tape with vocalist
    Zackey Force Funk - but he saved the worst for last, amassing the most
    misanthropic material for Ultima. To wit, SPIN dubbed early share "Lipstick
    Destroyer" a "junkyard takedown of Daft Punk's beloved, pristine electro."
    TOBACCO explains his modied approach: "I wanted to push each song just
    enough, so that even when the album's at its wildest, it's something you can zone
    out to. It feels like a denitive end to a concept I've been trying to perfect forever.
    Maniac Meat was linear. This time I wanted to do a lot of di!erent things and have
    them come together as one meditative piece. At least for myself."


    Which, oddly enough, makes sense. This is easily TOBACCO's most diverse set to
    date - his own Stereopathetic Soulmanure, but about that 1-900 hotline life:
    massage parlors, plasticized sleaze, fake tans, old dial-ups to the fan clubs of
    dead B-actors. Fittingly, the album's only contributor is Beck music director Brian
    LeBarton who shrieks as Notrabel on the grimy freak-out "Streaker." At 17 tracks,
    Ultima is stacked with beautifully perverse hits - from the sickly sticky "Eruption,"
    to the wobbly demon swaggerer "Face Breakout," to the distorted punk spazz of
    "Dipsmack," to the apocalyptic sepia ambience of "Spitlord." You may hear
    disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan,
    or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of '80s horror icks. Or the sun
    exploding and everything you've ever loved melting. Again, TOBACCO was just
    trying to make meditation music.


    But to nd that rotted sweet spot, as always, he had to subvert his pop urges.
    TOBACCO went back to the cassette decks he started o! with - analog weapons
    of distortion to compliment his hissing vocoder and blown rhythms. Any moment
    that felt "just right" was brutally assaulted until ugly again. All to accomplish one
    end: "This might be my most purposely difcult album yet, but I promise if you let
    it in, it can fuck you up."


    Ultima II Massage. No happy ending.
