We'll keep it brief. One last email reminder about the super-fab show we are sponsoring this Monday at the Bishop w/ Mdou Moctar (and band), all the way from Niger. RIYL Tinariwen, Bombino, Ali Farka Toure, Desert Blues, Tuareg Music. Leave your comfort zone and hear something unlike you've seen before! Now, the new stuff:

New Releases - September 15th

Mdou Moctar - Sousoume Tamachek (Sahel Sounds)

Music for desert picnics. Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar delves into his more sensitive side with a minimal studio recording of dreamy ballads. Thumping calabash, droning guitars, and vocal overdubs evoke an imagined desert soundscape. All instruments and vocals performed by Mdou only, creating very personal and auteur sessions. Emotive and introspective, exploring themes of religion, spirituality, and matters of the heart. Songs that are difficult to place, lifted out of half remembered memory for one last time. Playing with a full band at the Bishop Monday September 18!

Foo Fighters - Concrete And Gold (RCA)

"I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin's sense of melody and arrangement... Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper, or something like that." So speaks Dave Grohl of the mission statement made manifest in Foo Fighters' ninth epic, the aptly-titled Concrete and Gold. Written and performed by Foo Fighters, produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and mixed by Darrell Thorp.

Lee Ranaldo - Electric Trim (Mute)

New studio album from the Sonic Youth guitarist. Nine new songs recorded in NYC and Barcelona with help from many of the players associated with Lee's recent music, and some new friends: The Dust - Alan Licht, Steve Shelley & Tim Luntzel, plus Nels Cline, Kid Millions, and Sharon Van Etten, who sings on 6 songs, including a duet with Lee on 'Last Looks,'. The lyrics for 6 of the songs on the record were written in collaboration with American author Jonathan Lethem. Cover art by Richard Prince. This album extends the work of Lee's previous two 'song' albums and moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques.

Ariel Pink - Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (Mexican Summer)

This recording is his first solo album since his highly acclaimed 2014 prog-pop opus Pom Pom. The new release's title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life Los Angeles musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story.

Courtney Marie Andrews - Honest Life (Fat Possum)

There's a new generation of women burning down the Nashville music industry. Powerful voices like Margo Price and Nikki Lane have been rewriting the script, owning their own songs and vision. Now, add to this list Courtney Marie Andrews. After a decade spent touring solo and with large pop bands, she realized her desire for a place to come home to. She found that in a small rural town in the deep forests of Washington State. There, she posted up at a local bar, slinging drinks, basking in the simplicity and reflection it allowed. She has emerged with a new fire, melding indie-folk and Americana with a rebellious country flavor reminiscent of her Southwestern roots.

Willie Watson - Folksinger Vol. 2 (Acony)

Produced by David Rawlings and recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, the album features eleven songs unearthed from the canon of American folk music and brought to light by Willies remarkable voice and wise beyond his years performances. Special guest appearances by the Fairfield Four, Gillian Welch, Morgan Jahnig and Paul Kowert round out the arrangements on this stunning sophomore collection. Coming to the Bluebird on 10/15!

Deer Tick - Volume 1 / Volume 2 (Partisan)

Loved for both their introspective singer-songwriting and their raucous rock n' roll, these two records are a reflection of the two sides of Deer Tick's career that has spanned over 10 years. Deer Tick Vol. 1 is an acoustic record and Deer Tick Vol. 2 is a rock record. Playing at the Bluebird on 10/22!

Rostam - Half-Light (Nonesuch)

Half-Light is the debut album from Rostam Batmanglij, who is known for his work with Vampire Weekend and produced each of their three albums. The kaleidoscopic album features fifteen songs written, produced, and performed by Rostam in his Los Angeles home studio.

Son Little - New Magic (Anti)

Aaron Livingston is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R&B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound-blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll- through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. The new album delivers a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.

The Lone Bellow - Walk Into A Storm (Sony)

The Lone Bellow's earnest and magnetic folk-pop was built to shake the rafters - it's hooky and rousing and performed with absolute commitment. It has been since the beginning and continues with their new album Walk Into a Storm. Recorded at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN, the album was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and includes the first single, Time's Always Leaving.

Prophets Of Rage - s/t (Fantasy)

Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill have lived the resistance from day one. So it's no surprise that in the midst of the tumultuous election, the revolutionary musicians would join together to combat the coming storm, whatever it may be. These creative kindred spirits knew immediately this was a different beast. The 12 tracks, produced by Brendan O'Brien fuse the diverse styles, sonic firepower and hard-hitting social consciousness of the group's previous work into an inventive and commanding new musical statement.

Mike Gordon - OGOGO (ATO)

Produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Shawn Everett, OGOGO was recorded earlier this year in Boston and Los Angeles, and features Mike's regular touring band: Scott Murawski (guitar/vocals), Robert Walter (keyboards), John Morgan Kimock (drums), and Craig Myers (percussion). OGOGO is Gordon's fifth solo album, following 2014's Overstep, 2010's Moss, 2008's The Green Sparrow and 2003's Inside In.
