New Releases - August 18th

Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins (RCA)

Grizzly Bear's highly anticipated fifth full length album follows 2012's Shields, which was a critical and commercial breakthough. Shields debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned the band Pitchfork Best New Music and a four star review in Rolling Stone. Grizzly Bear - Chris Bear, Ed Droste, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor - spent the better part of two years writing and recording the 11 new compositions on Painted Ruins. Taylor produced the album and it was mixed by the Grammy Award-winning engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs, Weezer), who Pitchfork recently called "indie rock's new go-to sound engineer."

The Cowboys - Volume 4 LP (Drunken Sailor)

Bloomington's Cowboys will slap you about the ears with their punk'n'roll mess, whether channelling Jello Biafra fronting Thee Mighty Caesars (or Billy Childish fronting the Dead Kennedys?) or a half-cut Glen Campbell setting fire to his copy of Meat Puppets II while it's spinning on the turntable. The surfy pop of The Barracudas, left too long on a radiator and melting all over the carpet. Devo chilling out, maxing and relaxing all cool before bursting into the sort of sound that feels like having hairs pulled out of your nostrils with rusty tweezers. They'll bash you furiously about the head with pillows and gently tickle the nape of your neck with ragged blades.

Kacy & Clayton - The Siren's Song (New West)

Kacy & Clayton first met Jeff Tweedy in the backroom of the Fillmore in September 2016. The band had been invited to open for Wilco on night 4 of their annual 5-night run. While waiting for their soundcheck, Jeff appeared through a curtain backstage and introduced himself. Their conversation would eventually blossom into an invite to stop by Wilco's studio, the Loft, a visit they made only weeks later. In January 2017, Kacy & Clayton returned to the Loft with a rhythm section and a batch of new songs. Over the course of 8 days, the band recorded 9 songs with Jeff Tweedy producing and Loft house engineer Tom Schick at the helm. Kacy & Clayton found inspiration in the music of Sammi Smith, Everly Brothers, Link Wray's chicken shack LPs, country records with harpsichords, Sir Douglas Quintet, Gene Clark, Jeannie C. Riley, as well as British traditional singers like Peter Bellamy and the Watersons.

UNKLE - The Road: Part I (PIAS)

The founder of UNKLE, James Lavelle, has worked with some of the most influential artists of the decade (DJ Shadow, Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft, Massive Attack, etc.) and continues to do so on his first new album in seven years. The Road Part 1 is a collective creative venture by musicians including London folk-rock artist and poet Keaton Henson, Primal Scream's Andrew Innes, The Duke Spirit's Liela Moss, long time UNKLE collaborator Mark Lanegan, and Mercury prize nominee ESKA. The masterfully curated list of visual collaborators extends to the physical release, which will include a 36-page booklet featuring artwork by contemporary luminaries. Deluxe 2CD version also available.

The Jerry Douglas Band - What If (Rounder)

Jerry Douglas, the 14x Grammy award winner who has played on over 2,000 separate recordings (Alison Krauss, Mumford & Sons, James Taylor, etc.), presents a new album with a unique sound and a brand-new outfit of musicians, hand-picked by Douglas himself. Douglas decisively merges jazz inclinations with the bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul he's spent his life absorbing and performing, forging a sound that flies beyond the boundaries of anything he - or anyone else - has done before. From the up-tempo combination of what Douglas calls 'bebop jazz and caveman jazz' on 'Cavebop' to the symphonically sweeping title track, What If delves into areas unexplored by any other musician. The album also includes a funky, soulful take on Tom Waits' '2:19' and a blistering bluegrass-meets-jam-band reinvention of the classic 'Hey Joe.'

Raspberries - Pop Art Live (Omnivore)

Over 30 years since the original four members of Raspberries last played together. You can now experience the power and magic that led the group to a successful reunion tour in 2005. Founding members Eric Carmen, Wally Bryson, David Smalley, and Jim Bonfanti powerfully muscle through 28 slices of pure rock 'n' roll heaven, bringing to life the legacy of power pop's founding fathers. The Midwestern quartet has never sounded this good! Pop Art Live contains live versions of songs from all 4 of the Raspberries' classic albums including the hits "Go All The Way," "I Wanna Be With You," "Let's Pretend," and "Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)" as well as perfect renditions of timeless favorites by The Beatles and The Who.

Yawpers - Boy in a Well (Bloodshot)

The Yawpers third album, Boy in a Well, sounds like Alan Lomax using his field recorder to capture Mance Lipscomb ripping a laced joint with the Cramps and strapping on their instruments to let it fly. It's a complex concept album - manically conceived, historically situated, emotionally underscored and set in a plot-driven fictive universe. It's demented, unpredictable, taboo, ambitious, and yet distinctively cohesive. The Yawpers are a rock 'n' roll trio from Denver, Colorado. Their name is derived from a Walt Whitman poem, entitled "Song of Myself": "I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world." The Yawpers play in a unique setting of two acoustic guitar players and drummer, yet their music is played with "raucous glee comparable to seeing a metal band".

Dent May - Across the Multiverse (Carpark)

Following the lead of musical-polymaths-with-LA-ties before him like Brian Wilson, Van Dyke Parks, and Harry Nilsson, Dent's style on Across the Multiverse will be familiar to fans of his previous work. Yet there's something more refined about this collection... Stately strings mingle with boogie piano like old friends. Synths weave a celestial backdrop throughout. The title track, a duet with Frankie Cosmos, is a deep space love song about finding love beyond impossible boundaries.

The Accidentals - Odyssey (Sony)

The Accidentals adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates. Having both grown up in musical families with professional pianists for fathers and vocalists for mothers, their shared influences bounced between classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, alt-rock, and the obscure.
