New Releases - October 21st

Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker (Columbia)

Leonard Cohen, the acclaimed composer of "Hallelujah", continues to astonish his audience. At age 82, he presents his uncompromising and urgent new album, You Want It Darker. Described by early listeners as a "masterpiece" and "classic Cohen," it is the latest chapter in Leonard's significant contribution to contemporary music and thought. These startling songs have been beautifully realized in this his 14th studio album featuring 9 new tracks including the title track, all produced by his son, Adam. Vinyl due late Nov.

NxWorries - Yes Lawd! (Stones Throw)

On Yes Lawd!, Anderson.Paak plays a theatrically brash version of himself who raps and sings like a 70s superstar and talks sh*t like a stone cold player. The performance is seeded with details from his life, which has seen a fair share of struggle and hard-won triumph. Meanwhile Knxwledge weaves a tapestry of sampled bits and live fragments bass, brass and violin that smooths everything over, reminding us that despite whatever struggle it took to get here... well, you already know the name: NxWorries.

The Flat Five - Its a World of Love & Hope (Bloodshot)

The Flat Five is a Chicago-based super group featuring Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough and Alex Hall - five in-demand musicians who individually spend their time touring and recording with heavy-hitters like Neko Case, NRBQ, Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Mavis Staples, Iron & Wine, Jakob Dylan, New Pornographers and more. Yet, for over ten years, these 5 harmony junkies have come together over and over again in their scant downtime to make music, exploring all kinds of vocal music together, just for the sheer joy and fun of singing together. The band's long-awaited debut is 12 irresistibly catchy, instantly hummable and sweetly twisted pop songs.

Savoy Motel - s/t (Whats Your Rupture)

Nashville TN has a new band called Savoy Motel featuring Jeffrey Novak (Cheap Time) and Jessica McFarland (Heavy Cream). Driven by the pulsating beat of their Maestro brand drum machine (featured on many hits of the 70s), they produces music that combines bad time vibes with an upbeat groove...a mix of outdated boogie rock, with a dash of European prog flavoring, covered in a thin layer of cold white funk.

Lady Wray - Queen Alone (Big Crown)

Virginia-born singer/songwriter Nicole Wray has everything you'd want in a singer: an infectious Jackson-5-family-member flare, a range like Aretha's, and a church upbringing that's brought a pure, healing texture to her voice. But the struggle she's been through has made her more than a singer. The record was written and recorded in 10 days at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios, in Queens NY with Leon Michels and Tom Brenneck handling production.

Kadhja Bonet - The Visitor (Fat Possum)

Kadhja Bonet's debut album. Cosmic neo-R&B 'n' psychedelic jazz from the LA composer. Upon first listening it's hard to pinpoint what genre Kadhja should be placed under and that's a good thing. The record is free jazz, hip-hop, pop, r&b... all in one. Did you like the Kamasi Washington record? Do you dig Amy Winehouse? Do you listen to Grimes AND Nina Simone? Nice concoction of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sade + early Goldfrapp.

Weyes Blood - Front Row Seat To Earth (Mexican Summer)

Weyes Blood is folk music of the near future. The closeness of Natalie Mering's third album conceals its aspirations to the outside, to the "Earth" of its title. Mering leads us through the microcosm of the personal to the macrocosm of the transpersonal. These are not typical love songs or protest songs of folk before; they are painful, poignant riddles that celebrate the ambiguity of love. Follow-up to 2014's Innocents. For Fans of: Sharon Van Etten, Julia Holter, Joanna Newson, Beach House, Angel Olsen.

Dean Ween Group - The Deaner Album (ATO)

The Deaner Album is the debut album from The Dean Ween Group. On The Deaner Album, Dean brings his love of classic guitar rock to 14 original compositions (including four instrumentals) that echo everything from classic rock to cracked country to the quirky mix of soul, funk, metal and punk that defined Ween. For Fans of: Primus, Meat Puppets, Morphine, Violent Femmes. Vinyl due mid-Nov.

Sure Fire Soul Ensemble - Out On The Coast (Colemine)

San Diego's own The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble is back with their sophomore album on Colemine Records! Cinematic soul is the order of the day from this West Coast group. Covering a lot of soulful territory here: deep funk, soul jazz, breakbeats, and more! RIYL Menahan Street Band, Budos Band, etc.

David Crosby - Lighthouse (Universal)

Lighthouse is an intimate, stripped-down set that highlights David's instantly recognizable voice, incisive songwriting, and incomparable guitar work. The palpable joy in the collection captures the iconic artist in an unexpected burst of inspiration. Crosby received an able assist from Michael League of Snarky Puppy, who executive produced and co-wrote much of the album. Lighthouse features a rare economy of sound, filled primarily by David's voice and guitars, and Michael's bass. There's a sparse, unvarnished quality to the tracks that allows the songs breathing room and for the full emotional weight of the lyrics to emerge, unencumbered by extraneous instrumentation.

American Football - LP2 (Polyvinyl)

In 1999, Polyvinyl released an unassuming debut album. The band played a dozen shows and then parted ways. Then something remarkable happened: for the next 15 years, the album was discovered over and over, going on to sell more than 100,000 copies and becoming one of the most influential indie/emo albums of all-time. In 2014 and 2015 American Football played their first shows in 15 years, selling out venues the world over. Organically, the band started to write new material, and years of ideas gelled into the a picture-perfect second album- 17 years after the first.

Jimmy Eat World - Integrity Blues (RCA)

Jimmy Eat World's eighth studio album, via RCA Records. Integrity Blues is the follow up to 2013's Damage. Integrity Blues was written by Jimmy Eat World, produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, M83, Paramore) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Blink-182, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck).
