    Fade Away

    Fade Away is the first release on Bethany Cosentino's Jewel City label. It sets Best Coast off on a new burst of independence and creativity.
    And it reflects the increased confidence that Cosentino and her band mate, multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno, gained in the three surreal years since
    their break-through album Crazy For You. Celebrated as darlings of the lo-fi, it lead to defiantly hi-fi events like performing with childhood idols,
    Green Day and No Doubt, dueting with Kendrick Lamar and Iggy Pop, having Drew Barrymore direct their Chloe Moretz-starring video, creating a new
    collection for Urban Outfitters, and working with the widescreen producer Jon Brion, who's overseen master-pieces by Kanye West and Fiona Apple on an album that made Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine's Top Albums of 2012.


    Best Coast has taken the best elements of their previous records and combined them with more guitar, more conviction, and a louder more energized feel than ever before. They took complete ownership of their sound and their direction with a determined focus on who they are and who they want to be.


    "It's kind of like if you took Crazy For You and The Only Place and created a baby out of them -- that's what Fade Away is. It's not super lo-fi and DIY sounding, but it's not too produced either."

    Fade

    Fade is the most direct, personal and cohesive album of Yo La Tengo's career. Recorded with John McEntire at Soma Studios in Chicago, it recalls the sonic innovation and lush cohesion of career high points like 1997's I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and 2000's And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out. The album is a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, rhythmic shadowplay and shy-eyed orchestral beauty, songfulness and experimentation.

    Fading Love

    Fading Love establishes an exciting new chapter for acclaimed British producer and DJ George FitzGerald, marking an expansion out from his blistering mainroom sets across Europe and the UK, and into the realm of songwriter / producer peers such as Caribou, Jon Hopkins, and Four Tet.


    The album diverges from previously released club singles such as "I Can Tell (By The Way You
    Move)" and "Magnetic" (both out on Double Six, 2013), submerging the listener into lush,
    electronic pop songs. Its heartstring-tugging melodies generate physical, real emotion and
    are perfectly suited for both headphones and the dance floor.


    Fading Love is an outstanding debut album from an artist ready to be heard beyond the
    clubs.

    Out In The Storm

    Recorded With John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth)

    LP Housed In A Matte Jacket With Silver Foil Detail

    Includes A 12 x 24" Printed Poster Insert

    Out in the Storm is the blazing result of a woman reawakened. Her mostautobiographical and honest album to date, Out in the Storm is a self-reflective anchorin the story of both Katie Crutchfield's songwriting and her life. The album tells thestory of taking control of a volatile situation, embracing flaws, and exploring a newsonic freedom.

    The album was tracked at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia with John Agnello,known for working with some of the most iconic musicians of the last 25 years,including Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth. For Agnello, it was Crutchfield's voice thatdrew him in. "The first demo song I heard was 'Fade'. The melodies, the way she singsit, the way she turns the melody, and the way she goes note to note is literally beautiful.Singers-you either have it or you don't. She has it." Agnello and Crutchfield workedtogether for most of December 2016, along with the band: sister Allison Crutchfieldon keyboards and percussion, Katherine Simonetti on bass, and Ashley Arnwine ondrums; Katie Harkin, touring guitarist with Sleater-Kinney, also contributed lead guitar.At Agnello's suggestion, the group recorded most of the music live to enhance theirunity in a way that gives the album a fuller sound compared to past releases, resultingin one of Waxahatchee's most guitar-driven releases to date. "My experience workingwith John was genuinely life-changing," says Crutchfield. "We had such a greatconnection right off the bat, and I really feel like he was always looking out for me. Hepushed me when I needed it, and gave me space when I needed it."

    Crutchfield's voice oscillates between effortless grace and commanding righteousness,taking the listener with her on an explicitly personal journey. Songs like "Hear You"and "No Question" are lyrically unapologetic and musically resolute, while the softeracoustic songs like "A Little More" and "Fade" let fear and melancholy seep through.But it is on the atmospheric "Sparks Fly" where we feel an essential redemption."Sparks Fly" acts as an inner dialogue and marks the first time since the inception ofWaxahatchee that any semblance of self-love has shone through. This moment is aperspective we've yet to see from Crutchfield: it is a rediscovery of herself, and therealization of a full life she is completely worthy of. "It's about self-preservation, self-care,and reclaiming your autonomy," says Crutchfield. "When you find the things thatmake you happy, sometimes it's easier to see things that make you unhappy."

    Lucky

    Lucky, the title of Nada Surf's fifth album, is at once literal and ironic. Like the songs that singer-guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot crafted for their previous two albums, let go (2003) and the weight is a gift (2005), lucky is filled with images of restlessness, longing and the elusiveness of love. Yet the band counterbalances the lyrical bittersweetness with a musical buoyancy. Intimate songs become in-it-together anthems, thanks to the chiming guitars, propulsive rhythms, and the emotional candor in Caws' vocals. A song like beautiful beat segues from a sparsely arranged, confessional first verse into a harmony-laden chorus and reaches multi-layered, canon-like proportions before the track fades out. If Caws is often suggesting that romance and resolution may still be an inch or two out of reach, he's also proffering immediate musical solace. Turn up the volume, hit the repeat button, and your troubles, for a blissful three minutes or so, will disappear.

    Valtari

    You can forgive Sigur Rós for being hazy on the details of the recording of their sixth album Valtari. It's either the album they always wanted to make, or the album they almost didn't make, depending on how you look at it.


    In 2011, the band started the painstaking forensic task of piecing together a cohesive and magical work from disparate constituent parts. If this sounds unromantic, the results are anything but. Something alchemical occurs when the four members of Sigur Rós are in the room together, and even if Valtari is more a "studio based" album than any of its predecessors (which usually start life as rehearsal room jams), the long hours of experimentation and unsentimental editing have yielded incredibly persuasive results.


    In English Valtari translates as "steamroller" and there is something right about the title in terms of the process of its creation. The last three tracks of Valtari are like one long slow gorgeous fade out, as the listener, having been softened up by the slightly more "songy" start to the album, is left with the subtly shifting, deep introspective beauty of the last 24 minutes.


    After that, penultimate track, Valtari is like the far heart of the album; eight minutes that feel like being alone in row boat on a chill day, small irregular waves lapping the wooden hull as a dense fog bank rolls in and ice slowly encases every surface. Below the fathomless green, deep endures. Gatefold 2LP with MP3 coupon.

    Resistance Is Futile (Awaiting Repress)


    In interviews prior to the release of their 2010 album 'Postcards From A Young Man', Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire stated that the record represented "one last shot at mass communication". Twenty years on from their incendiary debut for Heavenly ('Motown Junk'), it seemed like the biggest cult band in the country were readying to stand aside to let any number of young upstarts attempt to scale their pedestal.


    Recorded concurrently, the twin albums that followed saw the band explore previously uncharted territory. On 'Rewind the Film' (2013), the band channelled their Welsh heritage as never before in a series of raw acoustic paeans; released a few months later, 2014's 'Futurology' presented a gleaming, panoramic vision of 'Europe Endless'. Following those releases, Manic Street Preachers toured two of their peerless albums - 1994's 'The Holy Bible' and its follow-up, 1996's 'Everything Must Go'. Maybe Wire's pre-Postcards prediction was right; perhaps this was time for the band to fade out gracefully?


    One listen to 'International Blue' - the first single from Manic Street Preachers' 13th album, 'Resistance is Futile' - blows that thought out of the water. The single is intensely melodic, supremely confident and driven by an empathetic melancholy. It's the perfect herald for a classic Manics album that's less one last shot at mass communication and much more a record ready made for massive communion.


    Unexpectedly lyrically open, 'Resistance is Futile' finds the band working from an emotional palette they are not immediately associated with. From the cascading opening of 'People Give In' to the scattered resonance of 'The Left Behind', the album is very much the work of a band demanding to be heard and joined, at full volume. These are Manic Street Preachers songs written for the stage; songs to be sung against sunsets and shared in full-throated union.


    The first Manics album to be recorded at their new Door to the River studio (situated at the head of a valley just outside Newport) with long-term Manics collaborators (producer Dave Eringa and mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge), 'Resistance is Futile' finds the Manic Street Preachers completely reinvigorated, clearly revelling in the change of scenery. The songs play to wide-vistas and open roads, nodding to the band's past (with echoes of 'Generation Terrorists' chaotic ambition of and the unrelenting melodies that run right through 'This Is My Truth ') while drawing a route map for the future.

    Hollow Bones

    Hollow Bones, the most anticipated blues rock album of the year from Long Beach, California's Rival Sons will finally be upon us! Having supported some of the biggest and best names in rock history, including being hand-picked to support Black Sabbath on their final world tour, following sold out tour after sold out tour, and just recently being added to the main stages at Europe's premier festivals such as Download, Hellfest and Rock Am Ring, the Rival Sons hype train continues to gain momentum, and Hollow Bones will surely propel them to their rightful place at the pinnacle of today's rock scene!


    Arguably the most soulful voice in rock music today, Jay Buchanan's vocal performance on the album is as fiery and passionate as ever. Infused perfectly with Scott Holiday's fuzzy guitars, a powerful bassline courtesy of Dave Beste, and held together by the precise drumming of Mike Miley, and the two-times Grammy award winning talent of producer Dave Cobb, the lead single, Hollow Bones, Pt. 1 and the electrifying anthem Pretty Face encapsulate the harmonious blend that we've all come to know and love, now further refined and perfected to create a unique, timeless sound that sets the band apart.


    Of course, no Rival Sons album would be complete without a heartfelt tune or two, provided here by the raw, dark Fade Out, which showcases the band's immense songwriting capabilities with haunting melodies and a touch of wistful melancholy. The final track, All That I Want, is an incredibly tender, touching finale, with the guitars this time taking a backseat allowing Jay Buchanan to deliver a breathtaking performance that'll tug at your heartstrings in a way that only he can. The man himself offers his own views on their latest work:


    Each record we've made has been part of a distillation toward revealing the band's essence. This record, finally is the release of the unapologetic, wild beast that has long lived within the ribs of Rival Sons howling to be freed.


    In keeping with a theme the band have touched upon several times, the stunning album artwork comes courtesy of renowned Brooklyn-based artist Martin Wittfooth, who's exhibited extensively in galleries and museums throughout North America and Europe. This particular piece, entitled Rainsong, is an oil-based painting featured in his latest solo exhibition, Offering, which was displayed at the famous Jonathan LeVine Gallery, New York in late 2015.


    Through his work, Martin Wittfooth has presented a dystopian world, devoid of human life and filled with strong symbolic implications that the root cause is our own disrespect for the natural world. In contrast to some of his earlier work, which have often featured creatures removed from their own natural environments and instead surrounded by trash and decay, Offering explores the ancient art of shamanism, demonstrating a more optimistic view that perhaps its current revitalisation can peel away the materialistic obsessions through which we are collectively destroying our planet. In Martin Wittfooth's own words, the reemergence of shamanism appears to be having a great impact on consciousness around the globe by severing individual attachments to the ego-driven, ideology-based monotheistic modality that has shaped so much of the human enterprise over the past millennia.

    Brahms - Piano Concerto 1 (Speakers Corner)

    Brahms originally intended his Piano Concerto No. 1 as a symphony and he extensively reworked his ideas before setting down the work in the form as we know it today. The composer's original intentions still shimmer through however, for the work goes far beyond mere concertante playing and a display of virtuoso brilliance by the soloist. The first movement in particular, with its relentless, threatening main theme, embodies Brahms's dramatic symphonic writing and even a conciliatory secondary theme offers no relief for it too must give way to the heavy, fateful initial theme.



    The passionate and grandiose opening movement is followed by an Adagio full of tranquillity and quiet devotion; the solemn atmosphere is taken to exalted heights by the soloist and orchestra only to fade out pianissimo.
    Although the forceful, belligerent Finale occasionally conjures up the dark powers of the first movement, the work ends in a confident and cheerful vein.
    It is amazing how the sheer presence of the emotions in this composition have been captured on the present DECCA recording from 1962. This is not only true of the gripping interpretation but also of the recording itself which remains transparent and brilliant throughout.



    Musicians:



    • Sir Clifford Curzon (piano)

    • London Symphony Orchestra

    • George Szell (conductor)




    Recording: May/ June 1962 at Kingsway Hall, London by Kenneth E. Wilkinson

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.



    and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Hive Mind

    If youve heard Daniel Martin-McCormicks name recently, it would have been either in association with his disco / punk / echo band Mi Ami, or as Sex Worker on the Not Not Fun label, or as Ital on NNFs sister label 100% Silk. Raised in Washington, DC, Martin-McCormick has a history in the citys hardcore scenehe was in Dischord Records band Black Eyes in the early 2000sbut was also making dance-inspired tracks during the same period, coming from a very different angle than the average guy with a copy of Logic Pro and a working knowledge of dance musics history.


    Martin-McCormicks music is a stranger thing. Hive Mind, his debut full-length under the Ital moniker, uses houses easygoing 4/4 structure as a kind of camouflage for more out-there sonic explorations, subverting expectations, seeking the links between dubs space- and sound-bending, industrials unsettling sonics and the effects and black holes of minimal at its weirdest. The album has a sculptured feel: sounds twist in space while melodies pitch-shift in an unsettling way, voices fade in and out, nothing is ever allowed to settle comfortably, everything vibrates.


    Opener Doesnt Matter (If You Love Him) sounds a bit like Tackhead if they had made house music, using a flickering and confidently repeated phrase over a lumbering drum and bass line, introducing swirling and bombing synths into the mix once the secret comes out. The strange marriage of treated voices and swelling, pitch-bent chords and effects on Floridian Void draws the listener into its strange atmosphere; its an ambient house track of sorts, but the ambience here is a swirling, confusing, watery vortex rather than fuzzy, new age pap. Privacy Settings builds creepy wolf howls over a slow bass line and cold, far-away drums, estranged from their usual disco setting, while Israel picks things up again, with weird, pitch-shifting bells over dubby toms and cold chords. Final Wave restores the album to something resembling normality, with a disco-like swing that recalls Moodymanns beat-down productions slid through brutal dub-like effects that bring out a shade of strangeness in an otherwise happy groove.

    Versus

    Some bands burn out, other bands fade away. Emarosa did neither of these things. They
    released their previous self titled album in June of 2010, the album was praised by both fans and
    critics, and the band toured the world over, headlining everything from club shows to festivals.
    Then right at the peak of the bands success, they took a surprising step back. It wasn't a break
    up, and it wasn't a proper hiatus, it was just a band who had been busy relentlessly touring and
    recording for 5 years deciding that they needed to take a deep breath.


    It's been 4 years and Emarosa is back, and stronger than ever. The nice thing about taking a
    break when you're at your peak, is that everyone is anxiously waiting for you to return. Emarosa's fanbase is still here, and it's just as rabid as it's ever been. They have been begging for the
    band to return. And that's exactly what the band has done. Emarosa's new album Versus is
    the bands strongest material to date. And while the bands absence from the scene these past 4
    years has been frustrating, it's all forgiven the moment you hear the album in it's entirety. The
    band has been busy playing the new songs on tour with Chiodos this past spring, and they will
    head out on tour making a stop at Riot Fest then hi ing the entire U.S. with Yellowcard and
    Memphis May Fire this fall to support the album around its release.


    They always say that good things take time, and in the case of Emarosa it's the truth.

    After Hours (Pure Pleasure)

    This Roulette Records' 1961 Birdland Series LP of Sarah Vaughan's After Hours was the first ever album by 'Sassy' to feature just her voice with bass (George Duvivier) and guitar (Mundell Lowe) in a program of mostly ballads, with Miss Vaughan crooning quietly in a rarely used style. Her voice is at its peak on these intimate, relaxed, almost spontaneous sessions. A true jazz classic of considerable beauty, with George and Mundell perfectly complementing 'the Divine Sarah' as she runs through a set of carefully chosen (yet unrehearsed) favorites, all songs one might've heard her perform in a smoky club well After Hours.


    Just one gorgeous track after another here. On Wonder Why Vaughan plumbs the depths of her vocal range. Easy To Love features an outstanding walking bass line. They swing it so well, Sarah is moved to finger-snap. Her exquisite enunciation and vocal sliding are most noticeable on a mellow cover of Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Lady. The LP's most energetic song, Great Day again spotlights George's amazing bass work. A mere fragment, it fades out much too soon. On an impressive Sentimental Mood, Sassy utilizes sharp, flat and quarter tones, and a few notes perhaps never heard before. The facáde of aloofness that shields a broken heart in Vanity makes for a melancholy, yet apropos, set closer. - Annie Van Auken

    Hermit Of Mink Hollow

    First Time Audiophile Vinyl And Gatefold Cover Presentation Of This 1978 Masterwork


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Bearsville Records Tapes


    As founding member of the late sixties Philly rockers Nazz, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter and producer Todd Rundgren was barely in his 20's when he began his long solo journey with success as one of the music industry's most prolific
    and celebrated rock artists.


    For his masterpiece Hermit Of Mink Hollow, Todd Rundgren delivers 12 solid performances which made this one of his most revered efforts in the late 70's. As with many of his solo albums, Todd played all of the instruments, sang and produced this major fan favorite and nailed one of the finest albums of his career and also catapulted Todd Rundren's marquee as a singer/songwriter even further with his smash hit single Can We Still Be Friends.


    Album opener All The Children Sing immediately brings the listener onto a magical journey as only Todd Rundgren can deliver. Filled with exceptional guitar work, solid lyrical imagery and his stellar vocals, the artist truly delivers a fine opening
    track for this musical event. Followed quickly by two stellar ballads the aforementioned smash Can We Still Be Friends and the R&B infused Hurting For You, the LP continues to thrill the listener with even more Todd Rundgren staples like the hard rockin' Determination, the bossa nova groove of Too Far Gone, and his follow-up hit single You Cried Wolf.


    Known to write some very key social commentary oriented songs in his long career, Todd nails some of his finest ever with his brilliant Bag Lady and Bread. Soon to be followed with more hard rockers like his guitar driven Out Of Control, the stellar piano ballad Lucky Guy, and the beautiful Fade Away which closes out the Hermit Of Mink Hollow album, making this one of the most important and finest albums of his career.


    This amazing album hasn't been on vinyl for several decades that is until now ..Friday Music is honored to announce for the first time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, the classic Todd Rundgren masterwork Hermit Of Mink Hollow.

    Heaven

    Fat Possum Records is excited to present the new album, Heaven, from the celebrated New York quintet The Walkmen. The record is the band's sixth and was produced by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Shins, Band of Horses) in Seattle.


    The Walkmen just celebrated their 10th anniversary and are still comprised of the same members that started the group in 2001: drummer Matt Barrick, multi-instrumentalist Pete Bauer, singer Hamilton Leithauser, guitarist Paul Maroon and bassist Walter Martin. The Fleet Fox's Robin Pecknold sings harmonies on two songs on the record.


    When describing Heaven, Leithauser portrays a band hitting maturity, comfortable in its mastery, after a decade together. "The detachment you can feel throughout our younger records is gone. We felt like it was time to make a bigger, more generous statement. Adds Maroon, "When you're starting out, you're sitting there trying to come up with a big idea, but after a while, you learn about the process of writing. You learn about your friends in the band and how they work best."


    It's been ten years since the Walkmen made their debut album, Everybody Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone. Ten years since they mixed the lovingly recorded analog tapes down to the cheapest CD burner they could find. Ten years since Leithauser snapped Maroon's arm in a celebratory wrestling match. Ten years since critics attached them to a New York scene they never wanted any part of. In the spring of 2011, the band played a series of 10th anniversary shows that demonstrated how far they have outstripped their peers: two sets over two hours, no filler, rapturously received. In contrast, fellow graduates from New York's celebrated rock revival class of '02 have burned out or faded from view.


    The Walkmen are the great New York band of their generation, and in Heaven, they have delivered their third killer album in a row. Although Leithauser argues that "our biggest accomplishment is just being here," they are making the best music of their career and filling their largest venues yet. Heaven is a definitive statement of purpose and commitment, from a band at the peak of its powers that is finally winning the recognition it deserves. LP includes a digital download card.

    Inquisition Symphony

    Cello-playing Finnish quartet Apocalyptica's sequel to their well-received first album departs from the safe haven of Metallica covers (only four tracks) and introduces material by other heavy metal bands, and even a few originals.


    Of the latter, Harmageddon is probably the standout track, and while most Metalli-fans will be eager to hear the group's rendition of the smash hit One, the song takes a backseat to inspired renditions of earlier classics such as For Whom the Bell Tolls and Fade to Black.


    As for the other bands covered, the arrangements of Pantera's Domination and Sepultura's Refuse/Resist are rather dull, but Faith No More's From Out of Nowhere works surprisingly well, and the group's performance of the album's incredibly complex title track (another Sepultura original) is simply stunning.

    Seer (Awaiting Repress)

    Received a 9.0 Best New Music rating from Pitchfork. The Seer took 30 years to make. It's the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I've ever made, been involved in, or imagined. But it's unfinished, like the songs themselves. It's one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade.


    The songs began on an acoustic guitar, then were fleshed out with (invaluable) help from my friends, then were further tortured and seduced in rehearsals, live, and in the studio, and now they await further cannibalism and force-feeding as we prepare to perform some of them live, at which point they'll mutate further, endlessly, or perhaps be discarded for a while.


    Despite what you might have heard or presumed, my quest is to spread light and joy through the world. My friends in Swans are all stellar men. Without them I'm a kitten, an infant. Our goal is the same: ecstasy! -Michael Gira

    Travels

    If you've ever desired a Pat Metheny Group greatest hits album, then Travels is for you. Compiled from the group's touring activities in 1982, this double set is a must-have. From the glittering lotus of melody that is "San Lorenzo" to the even more effusive "Phase Dance," the requisite classics are all here. We also get a curtailed, though no less epic, version of "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls," which here draws out like a long cinematic fade and throws the windows open wide to the band's boggling sonic purview. And one can hardly help but swoon from the dizzying heights reached by this live version of "Are You Going With Me?" Here the studio version seems but a memory on the path to glory, and finds exuberant life in what is perhaps Metheny's best solo on record. An absolute affirmation.


    Yet the album's true value comes in the handful of songs exclusive to it. Through these we encounter softer sides of the PMG, each burnished like a different shade of leather. "The Fields, The Sky" is an outstanding place to start. Vasconcelos's unmistakable berimbau threads a supremely melodious backdrop, while Metheny is at once distant and nearby, winding a slow and organic retrograde around the fiery center within. Vasconcelos is also the voice of "Goodbye," a forlorn piece of sonic stationery across which Metheny inscribes a most heartbreaking letter toward a ripple of an ending. This pairs nicely with the title track, a laid-back photograph of Americana that is like a rocking chair on the back porch: lulling, and affording an unobstructed vista.


    Similar strains await us in "Farmer's Trust," a slow plunge into an ocean of undriven roads gilded by the whispering of baby birds and the rustling of the leaves that hide them, and in the smoothly paved blacktops of the synth-driven "Extradition" and "Song for Bilbao." Each of these creeps along like wispy clouds over badlands, spun by keyboardist Lyle Mays into sunset. But it isn't all drawl, as drummer Dan Gottlieb proves in the invigorating "Straight On Red," throughout which he provides the perfect springboard for the masterful dialogues of Metheny and Mays.


    Travels is what the PMG are all about, and this album shows us the collective at its finest hour. Those hearing the PMG for the first time will want to start with the studio sessions, and especially Offramp, from which Travels was in part drawn. That way, one can appreciate the enthusiasm of the crowds, and get at least a taste of what it must have felt like to be there among them. With a depth and cleanliness of sound that no band can match, the PMG were a force to be reckoned with, but also one so welcoming that reckoning need never have applied. Theirs is a space where nature and nurture shared the same pair of lungs. - Tyran Grillo

    This Is Another Life

    Case Studies is the musical project of Jesse Lortz, a prolific Seattle based
    musician. His lyrics wax and wane with truth and bare tales from his life.
    Melodies surface as lines hummed in the in-between times. These easy
    melodies coat the heavy subject matter of suicide, heartbreak, grief and
    regret. As with his previous project, The Dutchess and the Duke, listening to Case Studies feels like taking part in an exploration of sentimental
    landscapes. They appear and fade like dark light lingering on the horizon.
    The meandering verse journeys to seek comfort in loneliness and vulnerability. Through the twisted subconscious, dawn breaks, breathing its
    light on both the joyous and dismal occasions that mark life's milestones,
    each song a continuation of his story, each song a probing examination of
    motivation and consequences.


    This Is Another Life is Lortz's second full-length solo release on Sacred
    Bones. It is the follow-up album to 2011's highly acclaimed The World is
    Just a Shape to Fill the Night. This is Another Life features guest vocals by
    Marissa Nadler on "Villain" and has the same producer and engineer,
    Greg Ashley of the band Gris Gris, as the last album. Ashley also plays
    percussion, organ and adds additional vocals & guitar. Lortz is also helped
    out by Jon Parker (guitar / piano), Oscar Michel (bass), Joe Haener (percussion), Carey Lamprecht (violin) and Shawn Alpay (cello).

    The music industry sees artists come and go on a regular basis. Plans change, life gets in the way and bands fade away. Occasionally we're lucky enough to see an important band return from their silence: enter At The Drive In. While At The Drive In was quiet, the members (Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Tony Hajjar and Paul Hinojos) were incredibly busy, selling millions of albums, winning Grammys and putting out a lot of quality music with their other projects (The Mars Volta, Antemasque, Gone Is Gone and many more).


    After a 15 year break, the band returned to the studio to create the follow-up to 2000's Relationship of Command. It's the moment fans have been waiting for since their return to the stage as 2012 Coachella and Lollapalooza headliners prepare for in·ter a·li·a. Produced by the band's own Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Rich Costey (Muse, Sigur Rós, Santigold), in·ter a·li·a includes eleven songs that resonate the classic At The Drive In intensity that fans love, while breaking the band's 15-year drought with something fresh and exciting, that slides right into 2017.


    Their impressive catalog has earned At The Drive In positions on the Billboard Top 200 chart, spots on various "Greatest Albums" lists, and performances on David Letterman, Jools Holland, Conan O'Brien and more. This album is sure to provide nothing less. The band will be touring throughout 2017 to support this release, as well as perform on late night television. The silence is finally broken resume transmission.

    Bury Me In My Rings

    As of the Spring of 2010, Blake Sennett, had quit music. Abandoned it completely. No more Rilo Kiley, no more The Elected. The former guitarist and songwriter focused his efforts elsewhere, writing and directing a short film, moving out of his house of 12 years and taking in a rescue dog. Music was a thing of the past, an afterthought.


    So why is there a new record by The Elected, titled Bury Me in My Rings. Did Blake struggle in his new endeavors, find failure in the harsh realm of the film industry? Is he making his return to the world of music defeated, tail between his legs, scratching at the back door of his past successes? The answer, one simply finds, is no. It was simply the interest of friend and colleague Jason Cupp that culled Blake from the depths and had him writing again. Jason, the man that mixed The Elected's previous effort, Sun, Sun, Sun, suggested an impromptu recording session. Blake had no material, no songs to explore, but Cupp insisted. Pressure free, no expectations.


    The results stand as a singular vision, in what is The Elected's strongest work to date. For longtime listeners, there are new sounds to enjoy, such as the mid '70s Bowie bounce of Go For The Throat, or the calculated Miss You era Stones cum Early Talking Heads groove of Babyface. Signature tones remain, and can be found on the island sunset serenade Trip Round the World, with the melodic slide of the lap steel, the comforting pluck of a ukulele, offering new ears a sense of what's come before.


    More than a mere dalliance, this former side project now begs the attention reserved for one's main focus. As the ghosts of Rilo Kiley fade into the ether, Bury Me in My Rings presents the man responsible an opportunity to further himself from the past, and to continue to develop his artistic identity.

    Tell Me I Belong

    Jim-E Stack has come a long way. Born and raised in San Francisco, the now
    Brooklyn-based artist born James Harmon Stack cut his musical teeth as a jazz
    drummer, but it wasn't until he entered the world of solo production at the age of 16
    that he found the freedom necessary to write and record how he wanted. After seeing a set from Fade to Mind boss Kingdom in 2009, freeform DJ sets and hybridized
    club music planted the seeds of inspiration in the burgeoning producer. He made
    his first splash with a bass-loaded remix of Nuguzunguzu's "Mirage", and went on
    to release the bright and drum-focused Come Between EP, garnering acclaim from
    international DJs and tastemakers alike.


    Following time spent in New Orleans, James moved to New York in summer of 2012,
    and started the slow process of sketching, refining, and developing the diverse tracks
    that would make up his captivating Tell Me I Belong LP. The album was equally
    fleshed out by looking forwards and backwards, which gives it the kind of purpose
    and cohesiveness many debut outings lack. In every corner of Tell Me I Belong, you
    can hear an artist who reveres classic jazz musicians like John Coltrane and McCoy
    Tyner, experimental pioneers like Steve Reich, and Detroit techno greats Omar-S
    and Robert Hood, but contemporary boundary pushers Arca, Oneohtrix Point Never,
    and Actress are no less inspiring for Stack. "More so than anything, it's really on
    some personal shit," he says of the themes woven into his debut LP. "The time period
    between leaving San Francisco and moving to New York was a tough time for me,
    and the music is kind of a reflection of that, the feeling like you don't belong." The
    music may speak about a kind of alienation, but it also abundantly offers the chance
    of collective experiences in the form of hard-hitting, club-specific dancefloor jams.
    That fearless juxtaposition is the lifeforce of Tell Me I Belong.

    Live From Austin, TX (Fats Domino)

    In my humble opinion, this is the definitive Fats Domino performance ever captured on camera. First of all, like his hero Louis Armstrong a generation earlier, Fats is synonymous with New Orleans. Not to mention the early days of rock-and-roll. Who doesn't love the infectious lyrics and floating melodies of "Blueberry Hill," "Ain't That A Shame," "I'm Walkin'," "I'm In Love Again" or "Blue Monday?" Music was practically a birthright for Antoine Domino, Jr., one of nine kids from a poor family. He never made it past 4th grade, but he was already playing boogie-woogie piano. By the time he cut his first record at 21, he already stood out from the crowd with his baby face smile, rollicking beat and that magic voice - youthful, warm and rich. Despite all the hits, his records don't do justice to the incredible excitement and energy of his live shows, driven by one of New Orleans' preeminent bandleaders and Fats' mentor, Dave Bartholomew. Fats is notoriously shy, but I pursued him to Las Vegas in my quest to lure him to the ACL stage. I found him in the old Elvis suite at The Flamingo, where he sat in his bathrobe peeling fresh Louisiana shrimp. I don't remember what I said or he said, but it worked - a few weeks later he came to Austin. When Hurricane Katrina hit, Fats had to be rescued from his home, sharing the trauma and devastation with his old neighbors in the Lower Ninth Ward. But don't worry - careers fade and styles change, but the music of Fats Domino is timeless.

    The Way We Separate (Awaiting Repress)

    Thomas Mullarney and Jacob Gossett, aka Brooklyn duo Beacon,
    introduced themselvesto the world with theNo Body and ForNow EPs,
    both released last year on Ghostly International. The EPs were united
    by minimalist, R&B-inuenced instrumentation, and also by a lyrical
    theme, with both serving as meditations on the darkness that
    underpins the most intense of human emotions: love.


    The duo's debut album The Ways We Separate both consolidates and
    developsthese ideas. The album focuses, asthe title suggests, on the
    idea of separation - both within the context of relationships and in a
    more intimate, psychological sense. As Mullarney explains, The
    narrative contained inside The Ways We Separate deals with two kinds
    ofseparation: one where two entities grow apart, and the other where
    we grow apart from ourselves. Over the course of a relationship, the
    two sometimes happen together, one being the result of the other.
    Desires, passions and regrets are central to the songs on The Ways We
    Separate, which take a variety of perspectives to construct a nuanced
    reection on the album's central theme. 'Between the Waves' draws a
    clever analogy between relationships and soundwaves falling out of
    phase: I know all the ways we separate/ Where we start to fade at
    di erent frequencies. 'Overseer' catalogues a parting of the ways with
    discom ting clarity: Isn't it ne?/ Taking it slow?/ Watching you watch
    me walk out your door. And album closer 'Split in Two' explores how th
    extremes of love and loss can take you far away from being the person
    you thought you were, making explicit the connection between the two
    ideas of separation: What I'd do for you?, sings Thomas Mullarney,
    Split myself in half/ Divided into two.


    Musically, The Ways We Separate nds Beacon working with a richer
    sonic palette than ever before -as Gossett says, The production on
    this album is much more expansive than anything thing we've done
    thusfar. We spent a lot of time exploring new gear and experimenting
    with how to pull a wide range of sound out of various instruments.
    Some ofthe key sonicsthatshaped this LP are analogue synthesis, lots
    of heavily processed guitar work, and vocal layering/processing. While
    the abiding mood remains that of late-night introspection, the
    production draws from elements of hip hop and a wide gamut of
    electronic music, marrying intricate beats and subtle textures to
    honeyed pop melodiesthat belie the album's conceptual depth. Rarely
    has bleakness sounded so pretty - this is a record that's deceptively,
    compellingly beautiful, an exploration of a place both discom ting and
    darkly seductive.
