    The Times They Are A Changin' (MONO)

    The Times They Are A-Changin', the third album featured in our ongoing campaign to restore Bob Dylan's legacy on vinyl, is also the third album Dylan recorded for Columbia. Released in February 1964, the incisive title track quickly became an anthem for all those seeking social justice, and served as the soundtrack for an entire generation.
    This Sundazed edition is an exact reproduction of the rare original 1964
    mono album, featuring the original 11 Outlined Epitaphs insert and
    all-analog mastering from the absolute original source tapes.

    The Times They Are A-Changin'

    The Times They Are A-Changin' on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Stark, Austere, Acoustic Record Dylan's First With All-Original Material


    Title Track, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, With God on Our Side Establish Dylan as Voice of Social Consciousness


    The Bard Addresses Issues Such as Equality, Racism, and Poverty and Helps Ignite 1960s Political Movements


    Faithful to the Source: Information-Rich 45RPM Pressing Brings the Simple Sounds of Dylan's Voice, Acoustic Guitar, and Harmonica into Lifelike Perspective


    Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and its unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and its unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, this restored 45RPM analog version delivers the landscape-shifting music in reference-quality sound that practically transports you to Columbia's Studio A. Reflecting the austerity of the topics and Dylan's mood, the sonics are direct and unadorned-each word hitting with weight, each phrase lingering until it pulls you under, each storyline echoing as fact. The hollow body of Dylan's guitar, internal mechanisms of his harmonica, and graininess of his throat come across in full-on detail. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity. Seemingly anticipating the dark events surrounding President Kennedy's assassination and the turmoil that followed, Dylan eliminates with conjecture and disguise. Akin to dispatches from the typewriter of literary icons John Steinbeck and William Faulkner, his songs give voices to the voiceless, challenge cultural precepts, upend traditional beliefs with rapier wit and truths, and underline tragedies swept under the rug.


    In doing so, Dylan creates stinging protest music that rallies against unchecked authority, discrimination, brutality, and division. A testament to the power of great art, The Times They Are A Changin' is a righteous assault on ignorance and agent for sweeping action, a necessary impetus for transformation and enlightenment. Via bold originals such as the nonfiction "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll," assertive "Restless Farewell," and semi-autobiographical "North Country Blues," Dylan casts hardships, greed, and victimization in such relatable terms it's impossible to turn away and ignore their implications.


    As correctly relayed by Dylan expert and cultural critic Greil Marcus, "[The record] forever fixed Bob Dylan in the popular imagination: the protest singer, the young man 'able to see through metal' (again, from Chronicles), to see through the lie and find the truth, then to hammer the truth into words and send them out with a voice that would never break."

    Title Track, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, With God on Our Side Establish Dylan as Voice of Social Consciousness

    Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies and Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Mobile Fidelity's 45RPM Mono Vinyl Set Presents Dylan's Voice, Guitar, and Harmonica in Superlative Sound


    Immediately distinguished by the direct mono sound and you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and its unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and its unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner like few albums before or since.

The hollow body of Dylan's guitar, internal mechanisms of his harmonica, and graininess of his throat come across in full-on detail. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    As the preferred mix at the time of the recording, the mono version presents Dylan as he and his producers originally intended. Since the separation of the stereo versions isn't as sharp, the mono edition places Dylan's vocals in the heart of the musical action and as one with the accompaniment. It paints listeners an incredibly accurate portrait of the attention-getting, concrete mass of sound that features no artificial panning and straight-ahead immersion into the music. This is how almost everyone first heard this timeless album-making the mono mix all the more historically valuable and truthful.

    Hard Times Are Relative

    Our favorite songs are like one-night stands: passionate or sad, capable of recalling moments with Proustian power. Our favorite artists are lifelong companions: fixtures we turn to for comfort and highs.


    Over the last two decades, Jason Boland and the Stragglers have delivered and become both.


    "We've always just wanted to entertain ourselves and put out music that would be a part of people's lives, not just something passing to them," says Boland. "We want to be something more monolithic." He pauses and grins as he adds, "We're just a social experiment at this point."


    Boland is talking about the deep body of work he's created with his band of jangly honky-tonk aces, the Stragglers--Grant Tracy on bass; drummer and background vocalist Brad Rice; Nick Worley on fiddle, mandolin, and harmonies; and Cody Angel on guitar and pedal steel. Fronted and co-founded by Boland with Tracy and Rice, the band has featured only a handful of other members over the last 20 years, all of whom--whether they're currently Stragglers or not--are like brothers. As they've independently sold more than half a million albums, the outfit has packed iconic dancehalls, theaters, and other big rooms across the country.


    With their new record Hard Times are Relative, Boland and the Stragglers stack the smart, road-ready outlaw country longtime fans have come to expect alongside creative risks that flirt with punk and psychedelic sounds. The 10-song collection is a rare blend of instantly gratifying and rewarding of closer listens--a definitively Stragglers accomplishment. "It's an upbeat album--a lot of fast songs, but it doesn't try to be fast," Boland says with characteristic insight. "It just sits in the pocket."


    No one has combined Woody Guthrie's conscience with Waylon Jenning's panache quite like Boland and the Stragglers. Since debuting in 1999 with the Lloyd Maines-produced Pearl Snaps, the band has matured without taming their refreshing irreverence. "We always joke that we try to take as much as we can from Lloyd and apply it to producing our own records," Boland says. "We've worked with him so many times. The most obvious thing he taught us is: just be musical. Don't hammer through the songs like a garage band all the time."


    That mix of subtle musical sophistication and unruly Oklahoma junkyard pedigree has resulted in some of the best independent honky tonk in recent memory. "You just have to be where you are--keep plugging away and doing the best you can at any moment," Boland says, reflecting on their career thus far. "For a bunch of slackers [like us], that's not too terribly tough."


    Co-produced by the Stragglers, David Percefull, and Adam Odor, Hard Times are Relative is the band's ninth studio record. All songs were recorded live to tape and without the use of any computers--now a Stragglers' hallmark. Upbeat steel guitar kicks off album opener "I Don't Deserve You" before Boland's signature baritone thunders in, smooth and stronger than ever. When fellow sly honky-tonk champ Sunny Sweeney joins him in out-front harmonies, the two become the rootsy dream team you never knew you always wanted.


    The album's title track is a masterpiece: an epic story song about a young orphaned brother and sister depending on the land and one another. Rich details layered over strings paint a scene that's compelling and lush. The song has become one of Boland's favorites. "Folk music is hard to write. Country music is hard to write," he says, reflecting on the difficulty of spinning a long tale while keeping it simple and engaging. "When you hit your own little tuning fork in your head, that one is a hard sell, even to me. But I enjoy that song."


    "Right Where I Began" sounds like vintage Stragglers: clever wordplay and muscly guitars ready for two-steppers. Fiddle and vocal showcase "Searching for You" shows off Rice's and Worley's harmonies that are downright divine. Crunchy guitars drive "Dee Dee OD'd" as Boland offers another round of wry observations. Easy gem "Going Going Gone" makes a solid argument for fiddle in rock-and-roll as Boland deftly turns a baseball metaphor into a classic leaving song.


    Gorgeous waltz "Do You Remember When" bemoans some of modern life's emphasis on disposability and the dismissal of heritage. Rollicking "Tattoo of a Bruise" picks up the same idea, and is tongue-in-cheek country doo-wop, fueled by fiddle, steel, and drums. "I'm not judging anybody," Boland clarifies. "Our music has always called it like we see it, right or wrong, smarter or dumber."


    Praise for the past but acknowledgement of nostalgia's limitations is a career-long theme for Boland, and one that this record continues to carry. "We don't want to lose the chili recipes and the Schroeder Halls because people are moving on to faster, louder, and newer," he says. "But instead of just hemming and hawing, remembering what's old and gone, we want to have new experiences within those frameworks--make memories with what's left of the good stuff."


    With lines like "Empty pockets don't mean you need money / It's just another place to put your hands / And focus on that rock you've been kicking / One day it's going to be a grain of sand," "Predestined" challenges listeners as it soothes. The song is a lyrical victory for Boland, who's long-since become a master of distilling heady ideas into digestible nuggets.


    Penned by Oklahoma music godfather Randy Crouch, "Grandfather's Theme" serves as the album's climactic closer. Attacked with psychedelic ferocity by the band, the song picks up the record's recurring concepts of the ground's insistence on shifting, inevitability, and our complex relationship with the past. Stripped down as Boland sings, the song soars off into a trippy, robust jam-band send-off--a serious triumph especially considering it's a defiantly analog recording. "We're fighting the digital world because they can make it so huge," Boland says, discussing the balancing act of filling out songs while letting them breathe. "I'm really proud if what we did."


    As he mulls over where the Stragglers have been and where they're headed, Boland comes back to one idea over and over again: he and his band are who they are, and with that genuineness comes grit, beauty, and staying power. "We're fortunate that we're not trying to fool anybody," he says. "That's what it comes down to. We're all loners but somehow a team. Now that I can look at it all, I can see: it's been fun."

    They Shall Inherit

    Menagerie is the new spiritual jazz project from the prolific Australian producer/songwriter Lance Ferguson, best known for his eclectic and highly acclaimed work under the Lanu and the Bamboos monikers. They Shall Inherit features a guest appearance from the legendary US jazz/funk vibraphonist Roy Ayers, and the album has had early support from the authority on all things leftfield, Gilles Peterson.


    Two musicions featured heavily on They Shall Inherit are Philip Noy and Mark Fitzgibbon. Phil is one of Melbourne's top saxophone technicians and for this album, he reconfigured his horns to match Coltrane's settings. Mark Fitzgibbon's background includes time soaking up London's jazz dance scene in the 80s, playing keys at the legendary Dingwalls sessions hosted by Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge. Also featured is special guest Roy Ayers on vibes.

    Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes

    Legendary Punk Rock Band's 1st Studio Record Since 2004



    Group Embraces Gritty, Soulful Currents on Can't-Miss Set



    Social Distortion's first new studio record in nearly six years, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes builds on singer Mike Ness twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile On Main Streetâ€era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortions anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful albums of Ness career.



    From opener California (Hustle and Flow), a song with enough attitude to redline a 40 Merc, to the dark rockin cover of Hank Williams' Alone and Forsaken, longtime fans will find the trademark punk roar they love. New fans, too, will be drawn to Ness maturing songwriting and vocals with an eye to his rock and roll legacy. Ness also produced Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes (his first time at the production helm).



    Cigar-puffing hoodlums, sleazy pimps, staggering winos, down-and-out blue-collar stiffs, on-the-run hustlers, wounded romantics, and spurned lovers are among the crowds that congregate on the street corners of Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, one of the most consistent, complete, soulful, and tunefully gritty records of Social Distortions career. The set reflects the groups progressive embrace of organ into arrangements. As such, subtle spiritual undercurrents coarse through several tunes.

    The album went onto receive more attention from radio programmers across the globe as even further hit songs would rapidly develop including the blues rocker Undercover Man, the country rock feel of Round & Round and of course another top charter with the summer Top 40 Rock driving sounds of Dan Hartmans Free Ride.

    We Are Miracles


    Colored-Vinyl


    Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, the acclaimed performer's
    Emmy-nominated and first headline special for HBO, will be available
    for the first time on LP via Sub Pop Records. We Are Miracles',
    recorded at the famed Largo in Los Angeles, California, was written by
    Silverman, directed by Liam Lynch and produced by Funny Or Die and
    Black Gold Films. The special was executive produced by Heidi Herzon,
    Mike Farah, Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch, Amy Zvi and Silverman.


    Emmy winner Sarah Silverman is as versatile of a performer as they
    come. Her repertoire includes everything from film and television,
    stand-up comedy, to iconic online videos. She voiced the role of 'Vanellope'
    in the Oscar nominated Disney animated film Wreck It Ralph, alongside
    John C. Reilly, and recently co-starred in Seth McFarlane's A Million
    Ways to Die in the West. She stars as the lead in the drama feature, I
    Smile Back, a film adaption of a novel by Amy Koppelman and was
    previously seen starring in Take This Waltz. In 2004 Silverman made
    an impressive splash with her concert film "Sarah Silverman: Jesus is
    Magic," which garnered major attention at the Toronto Film Festival,
    and she also received critical praise for her work on the documentary
    feature, The Aristocrats.


    Silverman was nominated for a 2009 Primetime Emmy in the
    Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category for her work on the
    Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program. This marked
    Comedy Central's first ever Emmy nomination in a scripted acting category.
    She also received a WGA nomination for her work on the show. Silverman
    won a Primetime Emmy in 2008 in the Outstanding Original Music and
    Lyrics category for her musical collaboration with Matt Damon. In addition,
    she was honored with a Best Actress Webby Award for her online video
    "The Great Schlep." She is now a part of JASH, a comedy collective on
    YouTube featuring original content by Silverman and friends. She has
    guest starred in a slew of acclaimed and notable television shows such
    as the Emmy nominated drama The Good Wife, and Monk, which earned
    her an Emmy nomination in 2008 in the Guest Actress category, and
    she has lent her voice to Fox's Emmy nominated animated series, Bob's
    Burgers. She also released a book in 2010, New York Times Bestseller,
    The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. Silverman
    was dubbed "the most outrageously funny woman alive," by Rolling
    Stone. She grew up in New Hampshire and attended New York University.
    In 1993 she joined Saturday Night Live as a writer and feature performer
    and has not stopped working since.

    Where Are We From

    There is protectiveness in the fist that holds a bag of wolf teeth. These incisors are each of the songs held inside Tender Forever's fourth EP. To spend time with this magic while the first of the fall leaves suicide bomb your bare feet, and the cicadas are strangely silent, is like feeling the phantom sting of your own baby wolf fangs where they once bit into your most vulnerable parts.

    These Are The JBs

    The Unreleased Album By James Brown's Backing Band: The Bootsy Collins-lead JB's


    Never-before-heard James Brown and J.B.'s originals and covers of Jimi Hendrix, Kool & the Gang, the Meters. Contains a 12-page booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and never-before-published photos.


    This album is the Rosetta Stone of funk's dominant idioms, yet its existence has barely been a rumor. In 1970 James Brown perfectly captured a definitive moment in modern music when he ordered Bootsy Collins into the studio to record the tracks that would be test pressed on King Records as These Are The J.B.'s. This album is the epitome of funk music, Brown's innovation that influenced everything that came after it, from Afro-beat to disco to hip-hop. And if there is any funk ensemble as influential as Brown's, in the post-"Cold Sweat" musical landscape, it's the Parliament/Funkadelic contingent. Those two streams, as Grammy Winning James Brown historian Alan Leeds details in this album's liner notes, converged for the first time here.


    This link between Brown's funk and all that followed features Bootsy and his young band running through twelve-minute instrumental take of Marva Whitney's "It's My Thing," replete with blues chord changes, alongside interpretations of the Meters, Kool and the Gang and none other than Jimi Hendrix. This is a young band's James Brown-turned-on-his-head style of funk that they nail in a one-minute vamp that pre-dates their obscure but important work as the Houseguests ensemble and embodies the essence of the psychedelic-flavored music that would propel them into the orbit of
    George Clinton and his mothership, where they poked cosmic holes in funk's polyrhythmic ozone layer in the mid-1970s.


    There are only two extant copies of the original King Records test press LP of These Are The J.B.'s. This, the first commercial issue of this album, was overseen by Now-Again's Egon alongside Leeds and Universal Music Group's James Brown expert Harry Weinger. It was mastered specifically for vinyl by Elysian Master's Dave Cooley from the original two-track stereo master that James Brown and his engineer Ron Lenhoff delivered to production forty-four years ago. It comes with a 12-page booklet with liner notes by Leeds and Egon and many unpublished photographs and ephemera.

    You Are Someone Else


    Fickle Friends' hugely anticipated debut album,'You Are Someone Else,' will be released via Interscope Records.


    Blessed with the same dedication to writing quirky anthems on their own terms as The 1975, the brittle icy synth flourishes of Chvrches and a new era indie pop IT girl in singer Natti Shiner, Fickle Friends have established themselves as the essential new British indie-pop band of 2018. They've played over 350 live shows together, been playlisted regularly on Radio 1 with an incredible string of singles including 'Brooklyn', 'Glue' and 'Hello Hello', headlined a sold-out London Forum - and all before announcing their debut album. Until now


    'You Are Someone Else' is an irresistible debut record, effortlessly capturing both the joy and uncertainty of growing up a 2017 millennial. Songs addressing social awkwardness, self-doubt, anxiety and the qualms of growing into young adulthood all through a prism of perfect timeless pop.


    Current single 'Hard To Be Myself' is an undeniably brilliant pop anthem for a pre-loading generation of wasted youth that flips lyrically from gloriously hedonistic abandon to naked self-analysis, while tracks such as 'Wake Me Up' addresses angsty obsession and the art of over-thinking. The album as a whole pivots around relationships and their tireless effects on the young mind, exploring the highs and lows of dating, falling in love and of course, breaking up.


    Fickle Friends are ultimately a great band with killer tunes who have worked hard at their trade and built a devoted fanbase the old fashioned way - playing as many shows as they could for as little cost, booking their own shows and writing songs on the road. Now, after huge festival shows at Reading and Leeds and a sold out Forum in London, things are slightly easier, but the dedication to writing undeniable songs and playing great gigs remains the same and they look set to dominate festival bills next year and play their debut album to the masses.


    On writing their debut album, Natti says, this album mostly talks about the feeling that you don't fit in your own life, forever craving something else. I felt like I was stuck in a perpetual nightmare of bad relationships and worry for so long and this collection of songs kinda pulled me out of that. We wrote and produced the bulk of everything between Jack's bedroom, the tour van and LA so it's been mostly DIY with an array of producers allowing us to get that extra 20%. We always wanted to make a record that made people dance and think at the same time. If any of these songs help anyone feel cool, or strong or even just less alone then we'll have achieved what we wanted.

    Are We There

    For all the attention that was paid to her 2012 break-through Tramp, Sharon Van Etten is an
    artist with a hunger to turn another corner and to delve deeper,writing from a place of honesty
    and vulnerability to create a bond with the listener that few contemporary musicians can match.
    Compelled by a restless spirit, Van Etten is continuously challenging herself. Now, the result is
    Are We There, a self-produced album of exceptional intimacy,sublime generosity, and immense
    breadth.


    Most musicians are quite happy to leave the production end of things to someone else. It's
    enough to live your music without taking on the role of producer as well. Yet Van Etten knew it
    was time to make a record entirely on her terms. The saying goes "fortune favors the bold" and
    yet this boldness had to be tempered. For this,Van Etten found a kindred spirit in veteran music
    producer Stewart Lerman. Originally working together on Boardwalk Empire,they gently moved
    into new roles,rallying around the idea of making a record together in Lerman's studio in New
    Jersey. Lerman's studio expertise gave Van Etten the freedom to make Are We There the way she
    imagined.Van Etten also enlisted the individual talents of her band, consisting of Heather Woods
    Broderick, Doug Keith and Zeke Hutchins, and brought in friends Dave Hartley and Adam
    Granduciel from The War on Drugs, Jonathan Meiberg (Shearwater),Jana Hunter(Lower Dens),
    Peter Broderick, Mackenzie Scott(Torres), Stuart Bogie, Jacob C. Morris and Mickey Freeze.


    It is clear from the opening chords in the first song, Afraid of Nothing, that we are witnessing a
    new awareness, a sign of Van Etten in full stride, writing,producing and performing from a place
    that seems almost mythical, were it not so touchable and real. Always direct, and never shying
    away even from the most personally painful narratives, Van Etten's songwriting continues to
    evolve. Many of the songs deal with seemingly impossible decisions, anticipation, and then
    resolution. She sings of the nature of desire, memory, of being lost, emptiness, of promises and
    loyalty, fear and change, of healing and the true self, violence and sanctuary,waiting, of silence.
    The artist who speaks in such a voice is urging us to do something,to take hold and to go deeper.
    Living in this way,the questions of life remain alive, as close and steady as breathing. Many of the
    ballads of old are as dark as pitch, and people for whom the issues of life and death were as vivid
    as flame wrote them.You could turn off the electricity,remove all the instruments and Sharon's
    voice and words would remain.They connect her to the mystic stratum which flows just beneath
    the everyday, which is rarely acknowledged as the forces of distraction sweep our attention away.

    Deep Time

    Deep Time (YellowFever) are from Austin TX, a bewitching pop duo, comprised of Jennifer Moore on organ, electric guitar and vocal microphone, and Adam Jones on drums; who are as infectious and delightful as this time demands.


    Moore, once the torchbearer for girl-group legends The Carrots is something altogether unusual in the modern age; a singer with those endangered qualities: personality, style, and an arresting delivery. Jones is the jazzy 'batterista,' as musical and dynamic a drummer as you will see on the scene today. Once upon a time, creatures such as these roamed the earth in the dozens; now they are as rare as the barely glimpsed yeti.


    But it's not just their personality that recommends them, it's the tunes. Just listen to the new-wave polka-soul-serenading madness of Gold Rush, the toe-tapping Italo-mutation of Sgt Sierra, the easy-listening doom-incantation of Gilligan, every song on the record is a bon-a-fide catastrophe for the forces of predictability and boredom.

    Past Time

    Bassist/vocalist, Hannah Lew, drummer/vocalist, Lillian Maring and guitarist/vocalist,
    Raven Mahon chose the name for their San Francisco-based three-piece as a way to
    represent the approach they take to writing music. The phrase is rooted in 17th century
    literature; commonly referring to a woman whose husband is away at sea, but the visual
    associations of each word also provides an opportunity to interpret meaning on multiple
    levels. We write lyrics about very personal and often dark subjects, but present the
    ideas in a way that disguises the content within metaphor and upbeat instrumentation.
    Influenced by similarly all-female punk and post-punk acts like The Neo Boys and
    Kleenex, they also note Roy Wood's The Move and The Kinks as a major source of
    inspiration, which can be heard in their three-part harmonies, complex arrangements
    and odd chord progressions. Grass Widow is also influenced by a legacy of women
    who have paved the way through their music and politics. Their collaborative
    songwriting process, the fact that they don't have a front person and that they all equally
    contribute to the work of the band speaks to this philosophy. In addition, they take the
    opportunity as an all female band to bring attention to the roles of spectacle and
    spectator in their scene and make a conscious effort to play shows where women are
    involved.
    In a statement from the band: We want to thrive in our scene as musicians, with a
    focus on our musicianship first, not our gender. Our goal is to normalize the role of
    gender in our craft and have an avenue to express our intelligence and our love of
    music. We acknowledge that movements of the past created by or affecting women in
    the art and music worlds are hugely influential, but there is potential for the original
    sentiments to lose potency if the meaning is misinterpreted or not redesigned for a
    modern context. Even the riot grrl movement is kind of antiquated. You never really
    hear people talk about that 'new riot grrl' band. We owe a great deal to that lineage but
    it's time for something new. We want to be portrayed as the responsible, thoughtful
    people that we are.

    Mockingbird Time

    During their heyday in the first half of the 1990's, The Jayhawks perfected a captivating sound that seamlessly blended the elegant folk-rock of The Byrds, the adventurousness of Buffalo Springfield, the hippiebilly soulfulness of The Flying Burrito Brothers, and the soaring harmonies of The Beach Boys. So it's richly ironic that their reappearance coincides with a dramatic resurgence of the musical approach they played such a central role in perpetuating. But this time around, The Jayhawks themselves are revered as icons by the young bands carrying on those same traditions, and it's their own legacy that they're advancing.


    On Mockingbird Time, their eighth album, and the first with the original lineup since 1995's Tomorrow The Green Grass, they're once again pushing the envelope on songs and performances of rarefied dynamism and grace. The album's shapes and textures range from the string-laden grandeur of Hide Your Colors and the widescreen vistas of Tiny Arrows to the streamlined 12-string jangle of She Walks in So Many Ways and the amphetamine frenzy of High Water Blues.

    Lost Time

    Greg Fox (Guardian Alien, Liturgy, Zs) and Kid Millions (Man Forever, Oneida, People of the North) each approach their drums with a spiritual reverence. Together, they test the boundaries of rhythmic interplay through subtle and ecstatic means. They are often highlights of the groups they're respectively known for, Liturgy and Oneida, while concurrently leading cutting-edge ensembles and collaborating with some of the most innovative musicians of our time. Explorative by nature, each drummer is constantly challenging themselves and setting new musical goals, and it is these qualities that have made them in demand not only in New York, but through out the world. Lost Time is their first collaborative album, sparked by a mutual admiration and cemented by a deep and abiding friendship that has grown over the past five years. Improvisation is a language, and this album is a dialogue between two skilled musicians whose hunger to cover new musical ground binds them together. Their friendship is not only an essential foundation for, but also a key ingredient of, this display of improvisational and compositional mastery Lost Time is comprised of two long pieces that represent opposite ends of a musical spectrum, one blasting and one meditative. "Telegy/Time Lapse" is an astounding array of rhythm and noise, with Fox and Millions using their amplified heartbeats as the backdrop for percussive mayhem. Both musicians are maniacal, playing frantic but precise patterns bolstered by synthesizer loops and bursts of noise programmed by Fox. The incorporation of their heartbeats, the synchronization of their internal and external rhythms, was inspired by Fox's mentor and legendary free-jazz drummer Milford Graves. "Post Encounter Effect" exists in a space of relative calm, its complexity less conspicuous but no less profound. Fox and Millions play a slow and steady pattern that phases in and out of sync like a slow-motion Reich composition throughout the piece's 20 minute run-time. Perhaps most surprising is the emphasis on non-percussive instruments, guitars, keyboard, and even trumpet, that provide a tonal base drone and further the rhythmic exchange significantly.

    Are We Not Men? We Are Diva! (Awaiting Repress)

    In that mythical era known as the 90's, five brave young men emerged from the legendary halls of some of the mightiest bands on Fat Wreck Chords with a single mission: make all the rest of these dildo punk bands covering popular songs obsolete. They crowned themselves Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and the world rejoiced. Now, seven records, scores of singles and nearly a thousand years later, having tackled every genre under the sun, the bold young knaves known colloquially as the Gimmes have ridden their success hard, and decayed into desiccated, old divas. Yet, the diva, she is immortal. And thus, imbued with the old-world, Mystic Pizza-esque swagger of Cher, the modern pop-art sensibility of Lady Gaga and the enthusiasm-for-drug-consumption of Whitney Houston, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes have returned from their beauty rest, busting out of their sequined gowns, and throwing vases at their assistants in order to present you with their latest opus, entitled Are We Not Men? We Are Diva!, slated to be released on none other than Fat Wreck Chords. And you'd best believe, whether because of their tantrums or their virtuosity, once you hear these fat ladies sing, there's not gonna be a dry eye in the house.


    For the uninitiated, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes consist of Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape on the guitar, Shiflett brother (and Foo Fighter) Chris Shiflett on the other guitar, Lagwagon drummer and Fat Wreck utility superhero Dave Raun on the skins, and are rounded out by Fat Wreck-head-honcho/NOFX main-dude Fat Mike, and incomparable crooner Spike Slawson. Together, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes-an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular mortal band-contain so much hot air, so much pomp, so much attitude, that it's a wonder that these guys can still manage to pull their five individual tour buses into the same parking lot, put their differences aside and belt out the ballads without clawing each other's eyes out. But they do, for the love of the fans, the music, and of course, the applause.


    In the past, The Gimmes have tackled such disparate genres as Motown, country, show tunes and even Japanese pop (sung in real live Japanese!) but none of that enabled them to truly soar as high above the eagles as they desired, feeling the wind of other, lesser bands beneath their wings. So this time, the Fat (Wreck) Five decided to take on the un-take-on-able and hit us with cuts from the likes of Celine (gasp!) Christina (Sigh!) and Paula Abdul (oh no you di'int!) among others. And as Spike's baritone somehow manages to make Whitney Houston's (Dolly Parton-penned) Theme Song To The Bodyguard EVEN MORE EPIC, you will be moved to tears. You will find joy. You will shake in your very skin as the music of these divas gently takes you by the hand and shows you how to love again. AND! You'll buy tickets to see 'em on tour.


    Because that's right folks! Nothing says 'diva' like coming to your town to bask in the torrential, gushing blasts of your love, and the Gimmes will be hitting the entire world in support of Are We Not Men? We Are Diva!, except maybe Mike, who's such a diva that he's got substitutes on hand! So grab those flowers off of your grandma's grave and head out now, to check out Me First and the Gimme Gimmes on wax and in your town, before these five outrageous harpies either kill each other or wind up as a Vegas destination act, bloated, high on pills and uh, nevermind that last part. Just go see em, eh? It's a helluva time.

    Are You Serious (Awaiting Repress)

    Andrew Bird has always been highly respected and has held a captive audience with his story telling prowess, but it's with his new album, Are You Serious, that he has made a breakthrough record. Coming out via his new label home, Loma Vista Recordings (Spoon, St. Vincent, HEALTH), and produced by Tony Berg, the album propels him into a new category of American songwriters. It's his most direct lyrically to date with key contributions from Fiona Apple and Blake Mills.


    Three years ago while traveling west to California to start a new life with his wife and young child they stopped at the family farm in rural Illinois for two weeks to catch their breath. The previous two years had been intense to say the least: raising a child in New York City as his wife battled a serious illness. With these dark days behind them he spent the next seven days on the front porch writing the lyrics for what became Are You Serious. It's a breakthrough for him in that it gets to the quick of the matter. This is the record he needed to make right now and is certain to put him in the leading class of American songwriter.


    The album was put together with a rigor akin to a novelist or playwright and musically crafted like a wrecking crew session where you have to be good right in that moment. There's little folksy quaintness or whimsical flights of fancy. There's less wordplay and more intent to process some difficult times that he went through. From the album art, created by the godfather of conceptual art John Baldessari to foregoing his traditional writing process, Bird has emerged from challenging times and a new process with an album that may be his best.


    The first single Capsized" begins to take you down the path that Bird so carefully crafted on the record, speaking from an unguarded point of view while keeping with the melodic, syntactic standards that he has held true to since the beginning of his career.

    Time To Go Home

    Chastity belt is a rock band consisting of four friends - guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in eastern Washington, but their story begins for real in Seattle, that celebrated home of Macklemore and the twelfth man. Following a post-grad summer apart, a handful of shows and enthusiastic responses from the city's diy community led them, as it has countless others, into a cramped practice space. They emerged with a debut album, No Regerts, sold it out faster than anyone involved thought possible, and toured America, a country that embraced them with open-ish arms. Now they're back and the tab is settled, the lights are out, the birds are making noise even though the sun isn't really up yet: it's time to go home, their second long-player and first for hardly art. In the outside world, they realized something crucial: they didn't have to play party songs now that their audience didn't consist exclusively of inebriated 18-22 year olds, as it did in that college town. Though still built on a foundation of post-post-punk energy, jagged rhythms, and instrumental moves that couldn't be anyone else's, the songs they grew into in the months that followed are equal parts street-level takedown and gray-skied melancholy. They embody the sensation of being caught in the center of a moment while floating directly above it; shapiro's world spins around her on on the floor, grounded by Grimm and Truscott's most commanding playing committed to tape. They pay tribute to writer Sheila Heti on drone and John Carpenter with the thing, and deliver a parallel-universe stoner anthem influenced by electrelane with joke. recorded by JosÉ Díaz Rohena at the unknown, a desecrated church and former sail factory in anacortes, and mixed with a cathedral's worth of reverb by Matthew Simms (guitarist for legendary british post-punks and one-time tourmates Wire), time to go home sees Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hungover.

    Last Days and Time

    Last Days and Time is the third studio album by American R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, released in 1972, their debut album on Columbia Records. It was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood, California, with founder and multi-instrumentalist Maurice White, Verdine White and Philip Bailey.


    Due to their live performances it cemented their status as the main funk band and set the stage for the band's blockbuster breakthrough. Songs on the album like Make It With You (originally from Bread) the pre-Brazilian Rhyme powerful funk sax style Power, (which sounds like an early version of Serpentine Fire) and Remember The Children are excellent examples of the great songs and albums they have made during their career.

It features the group's current line-up of co-founder and sole surviving original member Otis Williams alongside Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs and Willie Greene. All The Time arrives 54 years after the appearance of the Temptations' first Motown album Meet The Temptations, released as they began to build their rare and legendary place in the history of soul music.


    Among many notable inclusions, the Temptations' version of Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me' becomes a gospel-tinged love song, and the group bring their unique presence to The Weeknd's Fifty Shades Of Grey track 'Earned It.' Willams' unmistakeable speaking voice rings out over the introduction of Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud.'


    The new songs on All The Time are 'Waitin' On You,' 'Be My Wife' and the funky 'Move Them Britches.' The bonus tracks on the digital album are a 'Gospel Mix' of 'Stay With Me' and a 'Heathens Mix' of 'Move Them Britches.'


    Last autumn, the new musical Ain't Too Proud-The Life and Times of The Temptations became the highest-grossing production in the 50-year history of the Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, California. It has five-week engagements at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, DC in June and July, at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles in August and September and at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre in October, ahead of its Broadway debut.


    As the modern-day Temptations continue to tour the world, Williams observes: "I'm 76 now. Looking back, I never could have imagined where my life has taken me. I'm so proud of what the Temptations have achieved, and I'm grateful for every opportunity we've been so fortunate to receive. The music carries me. Together, we lift our voices with love and wonder. We had a great time recording All The Time and we hope everyone enjoys it."
