Mobys eclectic career has cast him in the roles of electronic dance music pioneer, singer and songwriter, producer, activist, and restaurateur, but for his latest venture he presents his music in a whole new light.

Together with Deutsche Grammophon, he is releasing an album of his best known tracks in stunning new arrangements for classical instruments featuring Moby himself and a stellar lineup of collaborators from across the musical spectrum.

Always a daring and imaginative thinker, Mobys first classical collaboration happened in October 2018, when he performed a selection of his songs alongside the LA Phil and conductor and friend Gustavo Dudamel. This was the inspiration for the current project, which features not only full orchestral versions but new electronic arrangements, as well as sophisticated smaller-scale acoustic interpretations.

The 14-track album includes classic Moby songs like Porcelain, Why Does My Heart, and Extreme Ways in innovative new versions, featuring eye-catching collaborations including both Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Vkingur lafsson on Porcelain; Gregory Porter and Amythyst Kiah on Natural Blues; and Kris Kristofferson as well as original vocalist Mark Lanegan on The Lonely Night. The album concludes with a cover of David Bowies Heroes.

Letter To You is Bruce Springsteens new studio album with the E Street Band, and is a rock album fueled by the band's heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound. Recorded at his home studio in New Jersey, Letter To You is Springsteens 20th studio album, and is his first album including the E Street Band since 2012s High Hopes and their first performances together since 2016s The River Tour.

I love the emotional nature of Letter To You, says Springsteen. And I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way weve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences Ive ever had.

Letter to You includes nine recently written Springsteen songs, as well as new recordings of three of his legendary, but previously unreleased, compositions from the 1970s, Janey Needs A Shooter, If I Was The Priest, and Song For Orphans. Springsteen is joined on Letter To You by Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons. The album was produced by Ron Aniello with Bruce Springsteen, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig.

There are only a handful of living musicians who can continually reinvent themselves year after year, and even fewer still who can claim to have maintained equal degrees of innovation and excellence across a career spanning decades.

Pat Metheny is one of the few artists in the world who can lay claim to such a description. On his latest album, Road To The Sun, Pat Metheny surprises us once again with his seemingly endless ability to harvest new vistas while retaining the instantly recognizable Metheny sound.

With two major new works, performed by five of the world ́s leading guitarists, Metheny charts a new way of obliterating boundaries between genres while simultaneously unveiling new facets of an already expansive personal language.

Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation was tapped by Metheny to perform his four-movement solo guitar suite Four Paths Of Light.

The centerpiece of this landmark recording is Road To The Sun, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ Metheny describes them as one of the best bands in the world.

In the end, Road To The Sun is nothing if not another truly great Pat Metheny record. It will rank alongside Secret Story, Bright Size Life, 80/81,One Quiet Night, Still Life (talking), Song X, and all the rest as being yet another unexpected and almost willfully inscrutable plot twist, inevitable to a genre with only one common element: Metheny himself.

Trey takes his fans on a journey to find out what matters most in life on Back Home. "I wanna make the kind of R&B that inspired me to sing," Trey says. "The songs that make you love, the ones that make cry and the ones that make you smile, laugh and dance. Music is the soundtrack that plays while we live our lives, and I wanna be there for my fans while they are living through this truly special time that we'll never forget.

Gregory Porter, the worlds best-selling contemporary Jazz/Soul artist with over 3 million worldwide album sales returns with ALL RISE, his sixth studio album. The album marks a return to Porters beloved original songwriting heart-on-sleeve lyrics imbued with everyday philosophy and real-life detail, set to a stirring mix of jazz, soul, blues and gospel. Produce by Troy Miller (Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum, Emili Sande), the set also represents the evolution of Porters art to something even more emphatic, emotive, intimate, and universal too. After 2017s Nat King Cole & Me, Porter knew two things: one, hed bring in an orchestra for his next LP, and two, the music is medicine. In the spirit of that latter revelation, ALL RISE brims with songs about irrepressible love, plus a little protest, because the road to healing is bumpy.

Since his world-beating 2013 Blue Note debut, Liquid Spirit, which won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Gregory hasn't let down his legion of fans, whether collaborating with Disclosure on Holding On, releasing his dance hit Liquid Spirit Claptone Remix which became one of the most popular tracks in Ibiza, scoring another Grammy for Take Me to the Alley (2016), or telling his life story through Cole's songbook. Porter is still surprised by his runaway success, but he has a theory: "I was soothed by my voice as a child and I think that's the same thing others get from it. I'm trying to heal myself with these songs."

Not only has Gregory made chart history by bringing jazz back to the masses, graced the iconic Pyramid Stage and the worlds most prestigious gig venues, performed for the Queen, appeared on the biggest TV shows as well as presented his own series (Gregory Porters Popular Voices on BBC Four), 2019 saw the singer launch and host his own podcast, The Hang, featuring such distinguished guests as Annie Lennox and Jeff Goldblum.

'It's a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don't necessarily understand' some things just aren't meant to be understood.'

The Lion King like the original 1994 versionfeatures unforgettable music by an award-winning team, including Oscar and GRAMMY-winning superstar Elton John and Oscar and GRAMMY-winning lyricist Tim Rice, whove written an uplifting new song, Never Too Late, performed by John, that features an African choir and will appear in the films end credits and also on the Walt Disney Records original motion picture soundtrack.

Just hearing that music strikes you deeply, Favreau said. Even if you dont know the film or stage show, there is a spiritual strength in it. But if you know the film, and if you grew up with this musicnow it can suddenly and immediately evoke the story itself, as well as all the connected memories and emotions that you have from your own past experience with The Lion King, or from the time of your life that you were in, or your childhood, or the life events its connected to.

Added Mitchell Leib, president of music and soundtracks for The Walt Disney Studios, The incredible musical talents who came together to contribute to this project are unparalleled. Jon Favreaus deep love and instinct for musical collaboration inspired Hans Zimmer, Lebo M, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Tim Rice, Beyonc, Donald Glover and the entire music team to an awesome level of generosity, spirit and commitment, resulting in a powerful journey of song, production and performance.

The Lion King original motion picture soundtrack features new recordings of the original songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice, score by Oscar and GRAMMY-winning composer Hans Zimmer, plus African vocal and choir arrangements by GRAMMY-winning South African producer and composer Lebo M (Rhythm of the Pride Lands). Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams (Hidden Figures/producer, Happy), produced five songs on the soundtrack.

In revisiting the score for The Lion King, Zimmer realized the original themes and music were the emotional spine of the story. He brought back many who worked on the original film, including Lebo M, orchestrator Bruce Fowler, conductor Nick Glennie-Smith, arranger Mark Mancina, plus several singers from the choir including Carmen Twillie (who performed Circle of Life in the 1994 movie).

Zimmer wanted to approach the score differently for the new film and enlisted the Re-Collective Orchestra (led by founders Matt Jones and Stephanie Matthews), along with the Hollywood Studio Symphony (comprised of Los Angeles-based session players), and his band. The goal was to rehearse and record the score like a live concert performance.

Music from the animated film released in 1994 won two Academy Awards (original song and original score), four GRAMMYS and two Golden Globes. The soundtrack was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for 10 nonconsecutive weeks and was certified Diamond by the RIAA, for 10 million units sold.

It s the most ambitious project the songwriter has ever taken on, and the first album she's putting out as a fully realized woman. It's also an LP that she worked harder than ever on, re-visiting songs, editing them down, adding new layers, enriching every single moment to make it the most luscious musical experience for her audience. Yuna makes soulful pop that contains the sultriness of Sade, the flair of Aaliyah, and the sweetness of Brandy. Via her three pre-existing albums, Yuna has built her palette of melodic, uplifting soul. Her third album Chapters in 2016 was something of a breakthrough, featuring production from Fisticuffs and features with Usher ("Crush") and Jhene Aiko. Her new album s list of features is mouth-wateringly impressive. It includes: Little Simz, Kyle, G-Eazy, Jay Park and Masego. Together with executive producer Robin Hannibal and a team of producers (Jason "J. Lbs" Pounds, Fisticuffs, Cardiak, Jordan Reyes) she explored sampling culture for the first time. The title Rouge is for the color red, which has been calling to her at this moment. "It's a feeling I'm having right now. I just got married. I've become the woman I've always wanted to be. The whole album is about how I am with myself: I'm comfortable with my relationship, with my focus on my career. It s the color of becoming this woman that I am."

George Benson gets back to Americana basics on Walking to New Orleans, the jazz guitar legend's double-barreled tribute to both piano-pounding hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero and poet, Chuck Berry. Walking To New Orleans is out on April 26, 2019 on Mascot Label Group/Provogue Records. The album toggles between tracks written and/or recorded by Berry and Domino as though Benson were moderating a musical conversation between Missouri and Louisiana. It kicks off with a rock-solid rendition of Berry's 1964 post-incarceration story song "Nadine (Is It You?)," which Benson makes his own by scatting in unison with his guitar solo. Then a horn section pumps up Fats's 1951 R&B hit "Rockin' Chair" and his first R&B-pop crossover smash, "Ain't That a Shame," from 1955, with Benson's guitar standing in swingingly for the originals' sax solos. The Chuck Berry songbook is also represented on Walking to New Orleans by the good-timey "You Can't Catch Me," the sinuous "Havana Moon," the rollicking "Memphis, Tennessee," and the bluesy "How You've Changed." Fats Domino weighs in with the rollicking "I Hear You Knocking," "Blue Monday," and the album's iconic title track.

2020 was not quite what Jay Farrar was expecting for the 25th anniversary of Son Volt, the band he started in 1995 after leaving the seminal group Uncle Tupelo, whose No Depression album helped define the alt-country and Americana genre. The group had just finished an Outlaw Country Cruise when the pandemic hit and sent them into their homes on lockdown.

Instead of a triumphant tour marking the illustrious landmark, Farrar was forced indoors by the pandemic, and his Reverie during that time helped define Electro Melodier, Son Volts 10th studio album and third for influential Nashville indie Thirty Tigers. The title, taken from the names of two vintage amplifiers from the late 40s and early 50s, also describes the discs unique blend of folk, country, blues, soul and rock an electric troubadour with melodies that hit and stick. Social protest songs like Living in the U.S.A. and The Globe, the former about the promises of this nation gone wrong, the latter referencing the street protests accompanying the Black Lives Matter movement, exist side by side with odes to long-term relationships (specifically his 25-year marriage) in Diamonds and Cigarettes and Lucky Ones.

Once again accompanied by the current Son Volt line up keyboardist/steel guitarist Mark Spencer, bassist Andrew Duplantis, guitarist Chris Frame and drummer Mark Patterson Farrar takes a slight turn from 2019s politically pointed Union to a series of songs that asks questions rather than demanding answers think of Living in the U.S.A. as Farrars version of Bruce Springsteens Born in the U.S.A., Neil Youngs Rockin in the Free World or Patti Smiths People Have the Power, an anthem to unite the populace.

One listen to Electro Melodier, which opens with Reverie, describing Farrars contemplative state gazing out his window, enlivened with Mark Spencers Wichita Lineman guitar riffs and the lush Big Star melodies, and you wonder why no other rock n roll bands or singer/songwriters are making albums like this about what were all going through.

With tour dates scheduled before the end of 2021, Son Volt is ready to return to what they know best after a welcome period of introspection.

The songs of Electro Melodier help remind us to be thankful of what we still have new music from Jay Farrar and Son Volt.

Formed in L.A.s South Bay in 1978, DESCENDENTS began as a power trio featuring bassist Tony Lombardo, drummer Bill Stevenson, and guitarist Frank Navetta (d. 2008). The band recruited vocalist Milo Aukerman in 1980 and began establishing themselves as major players in the Southern California Punk movement. Over the years, the band has sustained a potent chemistry and shared vision, further cementing them as punk legends.

In 2002, the original four-piece lineup Frank Navetta, Tony Lombardo, Bill Stevenson, and Milo Aukerman got back into the studio to finally record their first-ever songs. The songs were written by the band from 1977 through 1980, before recording the Fat EP (1981) and the Milo Goes to College LP (1982). Put simply, this is the DESCENDENTS earliest material, representing a lost pre-MGTC album. Most of these songs have not been hearduntil now.

Every element of DESCENDENTS genre-creating sound is here: Stevensons hyper-caffeinated surf-beats, Lombardos intrepid bass, Navettas crunching attack, Aukermans impassioned, infinitely relatable singingand all those great melodies and harmonies.

'Triage' offers a rare look inside of the songwriter. This album finds Rodney Crowell introspectively looking for answers and for healing, resulting in what he has called his most personal record yet.

This new collection of songs was written during the great political, environmental and economic upheaval that has marked recent years. The noise of that chaos encouraged Crowell to look inward for solace and answers. The result is this series of songs that contend with these themes, but approaches them from a place of healing, love and solution. That they are being released while we find ourselves walking through a global pandemic, is a gift of perfect timing.

Rock n roll is often hard to define, or even to find, in these fractured musical times. But to paraphrase an old saying, you know it when you hear it.

And you always hear it with The Wallflowers. For the past 30 years, the Jakob Dylan-led act has stood as one of rocks most dynamic and purposeful bands a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996s Bringing Down the Horse as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012s Glad All Over.

But while its been nine long years since weve heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, the Wallflowers are silent no more. And Dylan always knew theyd return. The Wallflowers is much of my lifes work, he says simply. That lifes work continues with Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over.

Exit Wounds, which, true to its title, is an ode to people individual and collective that have, to put it mildly, been through some stuff.

I think everybody no matter what side of the aisle youre on wherever were going to next, we're all taking a lot of exit wounds with us, Dylan says. Nobody is the same as they were four years ago. That, to me, is what Exit Wounds signifies. And it's not meant to be negative at all. It just means that wherever youre headed, even if its to a better place, you leave people and things behind, and you think about those people and those things and you carry them with you. Those are your exit wounds. And right now, were all swimming in them.

This LP finally brings a Clipping fan-favorite, 2016s Wriggle, onto vinyl in an improved, expanded version that features new art, previously unreleased remixes, and a track thats exclusive to the vinyl format.

The original, digital-only Wriggle EP was six tracks that werent finished in time to make it onto the groups 2014 Sub Pop debut, CLPPNG. For Shooter, Clipping recorded themselves firing fifteen dierent guns, the sounds of which exclusively constituted the beats drums, augmented only by a synthesized tone-row. The verses referenced the well-worn technique of hashtag rap, but instead of using it to boast about the rappers personal wealth and masculine prowess, Clipping put forth imagistic narratives of three violent encounters. True to much of the groups music, Shooter was an attempt to reframe a familiar style and test the limits of its formal capabilities. Hot Fuck No Love contains what might be the most explicit verse to date from Clippings favorite New Jersey rapper Cakes Da Killa. The EPs title track, Wriggle, was built around a sample of the influential power-electronics song Wriggle Like a Fucking Eel by Whitehouse, transforming William Bennetts torturous imperative into a instructional dance-floor banger. Wriggle and Shooter have become classic Clipping tracks and staples of their live show.

With this vinyl edition, Clipping fans old and new - and there are many new fans thanks to their breakout 2020 album, Visions of Bodies Being Burned, and Daveed Diggs thriving acting career - get the vinyl version of Wriggle theyve been clamoring for.

Oliver Wood is a testament to slow and steady wins the race. Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, he relocated to Atlanta in his early twenties to pursue a career in music. Gaining a reputation over a ten year period as one of the premier working musicians on the local Georgia music scene, he was invited to join blues legend Tinsley Ellis road band. From there, Oliver would form his own group, King Johnson, whod build a loyal regional following. When opening for his brother Chris band, Medeski Martin & Wood, he was invited to sit in, which instantly reminded them of the deep musical bond they shared. Soon thereafter, The Wood Brothers were born. Theyve since gone on to release seven studio albums, perform high profile shows from Red Rocks to Bonnaroo and earn a Grammy Award-nomination.

Until the release of Soul Of This Town and The Battle Is Over," in 2020, Oliver had never stepped out under his own name as a solo artist. 'Always Smilin'' is a strong opening statement from Oliver as a solo artist, and one that sets him apart as an accomplished singer and songwriter outside of his day job with The Wood Brothers.

Almost 50 years after the sessions that would make them an accidental Texas supergroup (Rolling Stone), The Flatlanders have returned with Treasure of Love, their first new album in more than a decade. Completed during COVID-19 lockdowns with the help of longtime friend and collaborator Lloyd Maines, the record finds the iconic trio of Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock in classic form, serving up a rollicking collection of twang-fueled, harmony-laden performances full of wry humor and raw heartbreak. While a few songs here are never-before-heard originals, the vast majority of the tracklist consists of tunes the band picked up during their half-century together, some stretching as far back as the groups earliest performances in the honkytonks around Lubbock, TX, where you might have spotted Willie Nelson or Townes Van Zandt in the audience.

Largely ignored by press and radio, the initial incarnation of The Flatlanders lasted only a few years before disbanding in 1973. In the decades to come, however, Ely, Gilmore, and Hancock would all go on to considerable success as solo artists, and with the 1990 reissue of their long lost debut, The Flatlanders finally received their due. Critics hailed them as visionaries and craftsmen of the highest caliber (The New York Times dubbed their first LP a founding document of the alternative country movement), and the trio would spend the next 30 years collaborating and touring on and off again to widespread acclaim.

MARCO VEZZOSO and ALESSANDRO COLLINA, the jazz duo that has conquered the countries of the Rising Sun!The disc collects 10 of the most beautiful songs of Italian music reinterpreted in a refined instrumental version for trumpet, piano, and percussion. The artists offer a skilful reinterpretation of unforgettable pieces, creating a generational bridge between pop music and jazz.This live version is also a tribute to the artistic partnership between Vezzoso and Collina, which began in Japan and reached China via Cambodia, Indonesia, and Malaysia.In the 'Italian Spirit live' project we decided to invite the percussionist Andrea Marchesini. Andrea is a highly talented and experienced musician who, like us, loves contamination between genres. It was therefore easy for us to integrate Andrea's artistic vein, who adapted very well to our playing. Indeed, he did much more, enriching the pieces with rhythmic details, sometimes almost melodic, without ever being invasive.Since their first musical meeting in 2014, the duo formed by the Piedmontese trumpeter Marco Vezzoso (who since 2012 lives and teaches at the National Conservatory of Nice) and the jazz pianist Alessandro Collina has come a long way. They have 5 albums, numerous concerts between France and Italy and several international tours. In 2015 their first tour in Japan, "Live in Osaka" was recorded and released from a Japanese label. In 2017, a long summer tour takes them to perform in Cambodia, Indonesia and again in Japan, with a closing concert in Tokyo. In 2018 a new tour in Indonesia and Malaysia and a series of concerts in the Czech Republic. In 2019 2 tours in China where they represented Italy at the first edition of the European jazz festival in Guangzhou and a tour in Norway, followed by one in Turkey. The duo ranges from a repertoire of great classics of past and contemporary Italian music to revive emotions in Italians far from their homeland. The interplay and harmony between the musicians, creates an intense musical continuum with a strong emotional impact, which guides the audience on a musical journey within the universe of the duo turned trio.

This also brings to a close the celebration of Tom Pettys masterpiece Wildflowers, as most of the songs on this album were recorded during the same time period. Shes The One included some songs that were left off the original Wildflowers album, recently included in the Wildflowers & All The Rest re-issue. To take the place of those songs, four previously unreleased songs have been added here two Petty originals (105 Degrees and One of Lifes Little Mysteries), a cover of JJ Cales Thirteen Days, and the instrumental French Disconnection. An extended version of Supernatural Radio is also included. The album has been remixed & remastered and brand new cover art commissioned emphasizing that this is a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album, rather than a soundtrack album.

Originally conceived as a medium for Chicago-based multi-media artist/activist Damon Lockss sample-based sound collage work, Black Monument Ensemble (BME) has evolved from a solo mission into a vibrant collective of artists, musicians, singers, and dancers making work with common goals of joy, compassion, and intention. A genuinely multi-generational collective, ages of BME members range from 9 to 52 years old; members include instrumentalists and fellow IARC recording artists Angel Bat Dawid and Ben LaMar Gay. Their debut album Where Future Unfolds was released in 2019 by International Anthem glowing praise; landing at #3 on Bandcamps Best Albums of the Year, #25 on WIRE Magazines Best Albums of 2019, and being repeatedly dubbed The Best Album of 2019 by BBC/Worldwide radio titan Gilles Peterson.

Locks & BMEs new album NOW was created in the final throes of Summer 2020, following months of pandemic-induced fear & isolation, the explosion of social unrest, struggle & violence in the streets, and as the certain presence of a new reality had fully settled in. Set up safely in the garden behind Chicagos Experimental Sound Studio, the music was recorded in only a few takes, capturing the first times members of BME had ever played or sang the tunes. For Locks, the impetus was more about getting together to commune and make art than it was about producing an album. In his words: It was about offering a new thought. It was about resisting the darkness. It was about expressing possibility. It was about asking the question, Since the future has unfolded and taken a new and dangerous shape... what happens NOW?

As we all watched and waited out the storms; viral and societal, we seemed to wake up scrolling through a whole new century, a time Morris began to refer to as The Digital Age of Rome.

He scrapped the demos and began a collection of songs in quarantine where the unprecedented times and topics were unavoidable. He wanted to document the era sonically and lyrically in some way.
I wanted it to sound like how the world felt to me in the second half of 2020. Uncomfortable and chaotic, dystopian but still beautiful.

Vincent Neil Emerson is a torchbearer of the Texas songwriter tradition. He channels the straightforward truth-telling and resonance of his songwriting heroes in Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle into something fresh and distinctly his own. Where his 2019 debut Fried Chicken and Evil Women proved that he is one of the most reverent students of country and Western musical traditions, his follow-up LP, the masterful Rodney Crowell-produced Vincent Neil Emerson, which is out June 25 via La Honda Records/Thirty Tigers, is a brave step forward that solidifies his place as one of music's most compelling and emotionally clarifying storytellers. His songs are cathartic and bluntly honest, never mincing words or dancing around uncomfortable truths.
Raised in Van Zandt County in East Texas by a single mother of Choctaw-Apache descent, Emerson's world changed when he first heard Townes Van Zandt's music. "To hear a guy from Fort Worth say those kinds of things and make those songs was pretty eye opening," the now 29-year-old songwriter says. "I had never heard songwriting like that before." He's spent the better part of the past decade honing his songwriting and performance chops playing bars, honky-tonks, and BBQ joints across the Fort Worth area. His first album Fried Chicken and Evil Women, which he wrote in his mid-twenties and came out on La Honda Recordsthe label he co-founded that now includes a roster of Colter Wall, Local Honeys, and Riddy Armanis a snapshot of his growth as a songwriter and stage-tested charm with songs like "Willie Nelson's Wall" and "25 and Wastin' Time" expertly combining humor and tragedy.
These marathon gigs and the undeniable songs on his debut introduced Emerson to Canadian songwriter Colter Wall, who quickly became a close friend and took him on tour. With Wall's audience, and sold out theater shows on runs with Charley Crockett, Turnpike Troubadours, and many others, Emerson found his niche. "It took a guy from Canada bringing me on tour for people to actually start paying attention," says Emerson. "Before that it was a grind like anything else, just trying to make a living." Crockett is another staunch early supporter of Emerson's and covered Fried Chicken highlight "7 Come 11" on his 2019 LP The Valley.
Like every working musician, 2020 pulled the rug out from under Emerson. With the pandemic shuttering live music venues and cancelling promising tours, he processed the upheaval the only way he knew how: by writing his ass off. His intense and productive writing sessions produced ten finished songs over the course of just a couple of months, a body of work so personal that he knew he would have to name the final product Vincent Neil Emerson. These demos caught the attention of Texas country and folk icon Rodney Crowell, who signed on to produce and record the LP. "Rodney is a hero of mine," says Emerson. "He wanted to make something that serves the songs, as opposed to making a record trying to put focus on production or the playing. It was an honor to work with him." Crowell had similar high praise for Emerson: "if he grows on the public the way hes grown on me, its possible young Vincent will plant the flag of his [songwriting] forebears firmly in the consciousness of a whole new generation." At the studio, Emerson tracked the songs with a crack team of session players put together by Crowell. "Because of them, we were able to get those songs in one take," he says.
The limited edition indie-exclusive vinyl includes a bonus flexi-disc featuring a duet with good friend, Colter Wall.

Yves Jarvis and Romy Lightman are a pair of idiosyncratic and restlessly creative artists. In the past decade, Jarviss ever-expanding swatch have earned international acclaim, while Lightmans twin-sister-led band Tasseomancy has transfixed listeners since the late 2000s. The Lightman Jarvis Ecstatic Band marks the duos first collaboration, slingshotting both musicians out of their comfort zones into spellbinding territories of lysergic folk and impressionistic rock.

Banned was recorded in the tranquil environment of the Tree Museum, an outdoor art gallery in rural Ontario, Canada, hosting residencies for contemporary sculptors over the past 20 years. The pair credit its 200 acres of natural spaces intermingling with human-made creations as the fuel for their unfettered process. Recorded over two weeks in a free-flowing stream of improvisation, the album finds Lightman on synthesizer with Jarvis on drums and guitar, as their voices weave together into an electrified pastoral tapestry.

For both musicians, the creation offered a chance to challenge themselves: Jarvis defying his solitary practice to record with another person, while open jams provided Lightman an alternative to her preference for thoroughly composed songwriting. This album is a loose manifesto in our shared vision for a way of being, says Lightman. Its about our relationship and the dynamics in that. Theres an epicness to it and tension at times. Its like the ways particles collide. Theres an alchemical aspect to it with these base components slamming together.

CARNAGE is shot through with moments of distilled beauty and resonating with an almost defiant sense of hope. In Cave's own words, it is "a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe."

Joni Mitchell refers to herself like a bee, gathering stories like pollen and trying to make honey from it, whether or not the flavor suits people is something beyond my control.

Sucker Supreme is the third album from Rosie Tucker, and first for Epitaph Records. It is a coming of age album that aches with self-discovery, self-definition, and self-redefinition. Sucker Supreme is also just the right follow-up to where their last album, 2019s Never Not Never Not Never Not, left off: still playfully observed, still sneakily political, still indebted to folk singers of the past but also much, much bigger, brighter, louder and noisier than anything Tucker has dared before. It delivers mightily on an ambitious M.O.: to be relentlessly catchy and muscular and noisy but also beautiful; be achingly sad and searching, but never too far away from funny, either; and to spotlight Tuckers empathetic, yearning vocals on top of it all. It takes a unique group of people to make an album that leaps out of the speakers at you like this one. Sucker Supreme is the first record made by Tuckers current touring band: drummer Jessy Reed, guitarist Jess Kallen, and bassist Wolfy, who also occupied the producers chair. Its a group of people as eager to share their long-dead folk music heroes as they are to pay homage to their still-kicking pop-punk heartthrobs.

Evolfos homegrown musical universe is forever expanding. If the Brooklyn-based pysch rockers felt pressured to repeat the successes of their 2017 album 'Last of the Acid Cowboys' they certainly didnt show it. One might think a band that racked up six million plus streams on their debut record would try to recreate this by doing more of the same, but Evolfo's latest album, 'Site Out Of Mind,' finds them stepping boldly forward, using 'Last of the Acid Cowboys' as a springboard for even more vivid conceptual territory, departing its earth bound adventures in melting landscapes, rat cities, and desert sojourns for metaphysical territory in the mountains of the mind. On this latest 11-track effort, Evolfo reaches far beyond the confines of genre to create a colorful echo drenched psych rock dream all their own. Partially inspired by concepts pulled from sci-fiction and one group psychedelic drug trip, 'Site Out of Mind' is a thrilling spiral into the depths of the spiritual mind and the afterlife. During late-night overdub sessions, the band would tweak lyrics line by line until it resulted in poetic verses like those of In Time and White Foam." Comprised of one-take recordings, an organ-heavy song like Orions Belt feels like youve walked into a mind-exploding jam session where everyone is so in tune that they dont even need to make eye contact, or a rhythm-driven cut like Strange Lights which jolts with an energy akin to Can. Evolfo dont just channel 60s psychedelia on 'Site Out of Mind,' they warp the genre with experimental flair, from saxophone electronics to droning violinists. The result is a collection of songs that are unexpected, absorbing, and blissfully tripped out.

The term Front Porch Singin may actually be a metaphor for many creative and conceptual musical ideas. But, for us, this title has become more of an attitude than anything else. What if the four of us were sitting on a porch together and someone begins to sing a favorite old Gospel song, like Swing Down Chariot, or a country and Western standard like Red River Valley, and everyone else just joined in? That is what happened at RCA Studio A. But, as usual under producer Dave Cobbs leadership, this album turned into so much more. The Front Porch Singin attitude remained prevalent throughout, as songwriters, musicians, Dave and all four of us kept coming to the table with terrific creative ideas to enhance our Front Porch experience.

This project is quite honestly one of the most heartfelt albums we have ever recorded. Perhaps it is because we recorded these songs in the middle of a raging pandemic that changed the face of America and obviously took a huge toll on those of us in the music business. It was a bit strange to social-distance from each other in the studio, but we believe it drew us all closer and, in doing so, we may have inadvertently recorded the perfect project for this time period.

Big Mess marks Elfmans first solo collection in more than thirty years, but its no return to form. Clocking in at 18 tracks, the sprawling, ambitious double album finds the Grammy and Emmy Award-winning composer breaking bold new ground as both a writer and a performer, drawing on a dystopian palette of distorted electric guitars, industrial synthesizers and orchestra in an effort to exorcise the demons brought about by four years of creeping fascism and civil rot.
The songs here call to mind everything from Nine Inch Nails, to David Bowie to XTC at times, balancing dense, harmonically complex arrangements with biting, acerbic wit as they reckon with the chaos and confusion of the modern world. Elfman wrote almost all of the record during quarantine, and while the anger, frustration, and isolation of it all is palpable in his delivery, Big Mess is about more than simply blowing off steam. In making the space to truly sit with his emotions and write without limitations, Elfman achieved a kind of artistic liberation on the record that had been eluding him for decades, rediscovering his voice and reinventing himself all at once in the process.
Born and raised in southern California, Elfman began his career as part of a surrealist, avant-garde musical theater troupe known as The Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo. The group would eventually morph into the critically acclaimed rock band Oingo Boingo, whose high-energy performances and genre-bending sound garnered them a fanatically devoted cult following in the 1980s and 90s. Among the groups early fans was fledgling director Tim Burton and Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman), who enlisted Elfman to score their first feature film, Pee-wees Big Adventure. The collaboration would prove to be the start of a long and fruitful partnership for Elfman and Burton, with Elfman going on to score a string of iconic Burton features like Batman, Beetlejuice, Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. To date, Elfman has scored more than 100 films.

Crooked Machine [2LP]

Vinyl: $38.98 UNAVAILABLE

A reinterpretation of 2020s hugely successfuland critically acclaimedLP RoisinMachineby producerCrookedMan aka DJ Parrot.
If RoisinMachinewas the big night out this is the afterparty where things get darker & more twisted.
Like the original LP it is segued as a continuous listening experience.

He likes a version does our Parrot.

When RoisinMachinewas in the makingyou would often have 3 or 4 versions of a track suddenly drop intoyour inbox. All different, all brilliant so the idea of Parrot doing his own version of the LP was always on the cards. Inspired by albums such as the 1985 LP Padlock, Imaginations Night Dubbing and Love & Dancing by The Human League, theCrookedMan has delivered something quite extraordinary.Parrot doesnt try to be cool, I reckon thats the last thing on his mind. He makes music with a real sense of responsibility to the craft. He just cannot make rubbish music, hed be too ashamed. So everything he is and everything he has learned, is put into everything he does. I thinkCrookedMachineis one of his greatest achievements so far. I left him and Fat Dave to their own devices on this and they have outdone themselves! I absolutely love it!! I think I prefer it to the original album, slightly less me and all the more cool for it!

Nowhere Generations unabashedly outspoken 11 songs explore the tight bonds and the distances we share, the struggles of everyday life, our personal failings and triumphs, as well as how the social and economic decks can be stacked against us. But Nowhere Generation also hints at the reclamation of ourselves, a call to resurrect who we are at our core, who we want to be and what we want to do with our lives, despite the rampant weaponizing of our culture. As lyricist Tim McIlrath wrote on The Numbers:these cold nights are almost unbearable, but purpose keeps us warm.

Nowhere Generation was recorded at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado under the tutelage of Jason Livermore, Andrew Berlin, Chris Beeble and long-time producer/engineer Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, TheDescendents) who has worked with the band on nearly all of their acclaimed releases since theirsophomore effort, 2003s Revolutions Per Minute, and is often described as Rise Againsts fifth member.

"Listening to the story of Canadian duo cleopatrick is a bit like hearing the plot of the best, most righteously validating coming-of-age film never made. Two friends meet aged four in Hicksville, Nowheretown (real name: Cobourg, Ontario, population 19,000), grow up completely inseparable, form a band and, against numerous obstacles, blossom into a genuine, global underground sensation. There are heroes and villains, highs and lows and, crucially, some of the most poetic plot twists that could seem almost too perfect, were they not completely true.

Take the story of 2017 breakthrough track hometown for example. Its one of the craziest, most ironic things thats ever happened, begins vocalist and guitarist Luke Gruntz. I was going to college because I was too scared to put all my chips in the band pile, and thats what hometown is about: its a song about feeling like were doing all this stuff and were working so hard and were just never going to be heard. Its literally a song about people probably never hearing our songs. And then by some act of the universe, that song ended up unlocking all the doors for us.

Today, cleopatrick has logged 77 million streams and counting - all from an increasingly dedicated fanbase whove found the duo, completed by drummer Ian Fraser, their own way: no major label, no big budget, just two best pals knuckling down, cementing a unique sonic alchemy and filling a space of honest, empathetic yet undeniably heavy-hitting rock music that theyd been searching for themselves for years. Between multiple sold out tours in Canada, the US and the UK/EU and appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and Reading/Leeds, the pair have been crafting BUMMER: a debut album that sees cleopatrick harness all the magic theyve been brewing over their two-decade friendship and funnel it into a record that aims to reinvigorate the rock landscape from the ground up. Taking the ethos of their New Rock Mafia collective - a group of friends and fellow bands, united in making a more inclusive, equality-driven space in rock music - and imbuing it with the sonic ambition and ferocity of a record designed to be played hard and loud, its an album about two friends, whove been with each other since the formative first steps that adorn BUMMERs heartwarming cover image and made something thats a testament to the power of sticking to your guns."

Liz Phair brashly but effortlessly drops lyrical nuggets into her melody-driven, lo-fi songs. It makes for a devastating back catalogue; from the peerless Exile In Guyville to Whip-Smart, Whitechocolatespaceegg to the self-titled Liz Phair, each of her records acts as another timely klaxon call for a generation not prepared to sit back nor shut up. It's a career that's heralded her Grammy Award nominations, a spot on Rolling Stone's albums of all-time list, and decades of critical acclaim that has inspired and influenced some of the brightest new faces of yesterday and today, veering from cult icon to mainstream concern. Over a decade since her last record was released, Liz Phair now returns with another bagful of fireworks already fizzing to be let off in the shape of new album Soberish. Liz maintains the sass that propelled her to become such a critical darling, and that innate ear for melody and razor sharp way with words." Hey Lou" is the record's opening gambit, a mischievous ode to Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, and Liz's jaunty lament back into our ears. Welcome back Miss Phair, we've missed you.
