New Releases - September 23rd

Danny & the Darleans - Bug Out (In the Red)

Danny Kroha is one-third of The Gories. Their 2nd LP refines some of the savage bombast of the Gories while ditching almost all of the glam camp of Kroha's other long-running act, the Demolition Doll Rods. Backed by fireball drummer Richie Wohlfeil (Detroit Cobras) and bassist Colleen Burke, they're something of a party band. The tunes are often lighthearted, fun, and rowdy, but there is also an undercurrent of science fiction dread. Apocalyptic party rock makes sense from a trio of Detroit shadow dwellers, and the good times are never too far from the hard times over the course of this mono masterpiece.

Devendra Banhart - Ape in Pink Marble (Nonesuch)

The album, Banhart's ninth, was written, produced, arranged, and recorded in Los Angeles by the singer / songwriter / guitarist with his longtime collaborators Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, both of whom also worked on Banhart's most recent album, Mala (2013).

Beach Slang - A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings (Polyvinyl)

Written and recorded in the midst of a relentless touring schedule that found the band selling out sweat drenched shows across the U.S. and Europe, A Loud Bash is exactly what its title implies -- a raucous collection of shout-along punk rock anthems anchored by frontman James Alex's trademark heart-on-sleeve lyricism. Playing at The Bishop on 10/25.

Bruce Springsteen - Chapter and Verse (Columbia)

The audio companion to Bruce's autobiography, Born to Run, arriving in bookstores September 27th. Five of the album's 18 tracks are previously unreleased. Springsteen selected the songs on Chapter and Verse to reflect the themes and sections of 'Born to Run.' The compilation begins with two tracks from The Castiles, featuring a teenaged Springsteen on guitar and vocals. The collected songs trace Bruce's musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book, and is a must for any Bruce Springsteen fan.

David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 - 1976)

The follow up to the awarding winning Five Years (1969-73). This box set includes Diamond Dogs, David Live, Young Americans and Station To Station, as well as The Gouster, Live Nassau Coliseum '76 and a new compilation entitled Re:Call 2 which is a collection of single versions and non-album b-sides. Exclusive to the box set is The Gouster- previously unreleased as a complete album, it was recorded at Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974 and produced by Tony Visconti. The album was mixed and mastered before David decamped to NY to work with John Lennon & Harry Maslin on what became Young Americans. Tons of free schwag with purchase!

Billy Bragg & Joe Henry - Shine A Light (Cooking Vinyl)

Billy Bragg & Joe Henry Explore America's Rails And Musical Heritage On 'Shine A Light: Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad'. Recorded While Travelling By Train Shine A Light Features Songs Originally Made Famous By Hank Williams, Lead Belly, The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Glenn Campbell, Gordon Lightfoot & more.

How To Dress Well - What Is This Heart (Domino)

Since the release of his debut, Love Remains, in 2010 and the haunting, glacial neo-soul of 2012's Total Loss, Tom Krell has crafted a reputation as one of America's most original, focused and beguiling young songwriters. Its twelve songs were conceived and written during months of grueling international touring and realized with producer Rodaidh McDonald (Vampire Weekend, The xx, Savages, Adele), and the result is an ambitious 21st century pop album.

LVL UP - Return to Love (Sub Pop)

What starts with unassuming guitars and vocals adds new lines, depths, and intensity, until its unrestrained, triumphant finish. "God is peeking, softly speaking," repeats the chorus, working through the relationship between spirituality and creative inspiration, and introducing a band that is always pushing further. LVL UP is a true collaboration, a band that takes the stylistically distinct ideas of four members and brings them together into something new. The music itself grows from a shared melodic and experimental sensibility, as well as a nod to iconic influences like Neutral Milk Hotel and Mount Eerie. Playing at the Bishop on 10/28!

Daniel Lanois - Goodbye to Language (Anti)

Daniel Lanois is one of the most influential record producers of the modern era. But before all that, he was an experimental musician, recording his unique guitar voicings for albums with guys like Eno and Jon Hassell. Constructed entirely from the sounds Lanois on the pedal steel and his mate Rocco Deluca on the lap steel. The album has compositional rigour that recalls the 20th century dreamscapes of Ravel and Debussy, with a sense of sonic futurism and yet also with the naturalness that can only come from someone rooted in centuries of grassroots music.

The Sword - Low Country (Razor & Tie)

Following nine months of touring in support of their critically acclaimed album "High Country", Austin, Texas metal luminaries The Sword returned to the studio to experiment with a stripped-down acoustic presentation of the LP's songs. The result, produced by bassist Bryan Richie and mixed by J. Robbins, is "Low Country".

Dwight Yoakam - Swimming Pools, Movie Stars (Sugar Hill)

Dwight's first ever bluegrass album. Rather than rambling through bluegrass standards, he revisits songs from his own catalog, some of them fairly deep cuts handpicked by Nashville's Gary Paczosa and Jon Randall, the contemporary bluegrass studio pros with whom Yoakam co-produced it. The only outlier? An earnest, and apparently unplanned, cover of Prince's iconic "Purple Rain."

Mild High Club - Skiptracing (Stones Throw)

Following on the mellow buzz generated on their 2015 debut album, Timeline, The Mild High Club returns this summer with their second full-length, Skiptracing. Investigating the spirit of American music, The Mild High Club re-imagine AM radio hits as blasting in from a parallel universe, the sound of early 70s LA in a smog of sativa. It's a cosmic connection that tethers The Mild High Club to fellow sonic brethren like Ariel Pink, Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Connan Mockasin and more. LP in a couple weeks.
