New Releases - February 24th

Screaming Females - Rose Mountain (Don Giovanni)

Screaming Females had such a clear goal for their new album that it became almost a mantra: they wanted songs that were concise, crisp and melodic. That's exactly what the NJ punk trio delivers on their 6th album, Rose Mountain. Not only does it reflect a new approach to the their songwriting, the LP marks the first time they have worked with an outside producer (Matt Bayles), and comes as the trio celebrates 10 years together. LP comes with bonus 7"! Playing at the Bishop on March 26th!

THEESatisfaction - EarthEE (Sub Pop)

THEESatisfaction's EarthEE is the follow up to awE naturalE, the alternative R&B group's critically acclaimed debut. EarthEE was recorded in Seattle and Brooklyn, and features guest appearances from Shabazz Palaces, Meshell Ndegeocello, Porter Ray and Taylor Brown. EarthEE was produced by THEESatisfaction and Erik Blood at Protect and Exalt Studios: A Black Space, and mastered by Adam Straney at BreakPoint Mastering in Seattle. Playing at the Bishop on April 12th!

Torche - Restarter (Relapse)

Torche rose to popularity merging huge infectious melodies with downtuned, crushing sludgey rock- and on Restarter they've perfected the marriage. This is a record that is simultaneously hum-able and heavy that will just as easily appeal to fans of Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth as it will Melvins and High On Fire-heads. But what truly set Torche apart from their peers is their ability to use top-notch songwriting and soaring, harmonic vocals to create records that are heavier and louder and hookier than anyone else out there. Free sunglasses with purchase!

Dan Deacon - Gliss Riffer (Domino)

Gliss Riffer marks new territory for Baltimore-based Dan Deacon who, following up on the release of his large ensemble-based recordings - Bromst and America - has returned to a simpler way of writing and recording, similar to that of 2007's Spiderman of the Rings, which resulted in this self-produced album. What Gliss Riffer shares with Spiderman of the Rings as a musical experience is an aesthetic directness and its ecstatic energy.

James McMurtry - Complicated Game (Complicated Game)

McMurtry's first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolutely peak form as he turns from political toward personal ('These Things I've Come to Know, You Got to Me'). 'The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships', McMurtry says. 'It's also a little about the big old world verses the poor little farmer or fisherman.' James spins stories with a poet's pen and a painter's precision.

Elvis Perkins - I Aubade (Mir Image)

Third full-length album from songwriter and recording artist Elvis Perkins - coming out on his own label. Guest appearances from Nick Kinsey and Wyndham Boylan-Garnett of Dearland, drummer Otto Hauser and multi-instrumentalist Frank Fairfield, singer Cornelia Livingston, and long-time collaborator Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond. Playing at the Bishop on April 24th!

Colleen Green - I Want to Grow Up (Hardly Art)

The latest collection of songs from LA songstress Colleen Green follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion. Her firm belief in true love is challenged by the inner turmoil caused by entering modern adulthood, but that doesn't mean that her faith is defeated. This time, she's got a little help from her friends: the full band heard here includes Jeff the Brotherhood's Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet's Casey Weissbuch.

Diamond Rugs - Cosmetics (Sycamore)

In rock journalism, the term supergroup is often doled out a little too easy. But Diamond Rugs fit the bill in the most valiant ways - Deer Tick's John McCauley & Robbie Crowell, former Black Lips guitarist Ian St. Pe, Dead Confederates T. Hardy Morris, Los Lobos Steve Berlin and Six Finger Satellite's Bryan Dufresne. On the band's new LP, each musician maintains the distinct personality you loved about em in the first place, while at the same time locking in like puzzle pieces, feeding off each other in a way that make most full-time bands jealous as hell, and leaving in their wake a breezy, wide-open, unpretentious set of rock & roll songs that beg you to dance your ass off.

Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders - Playmates (Fat Possum)

Three years after the acclaimed "Hurtsville" and a move from the inner city of Sydney to the Blue Mountains, Jack Ladder returns with his new album 'Playmates.' The album is produced by Kim Moyes of The Presets, and mixed by David Rench (Jungle, FKA Twigs, Caribou). The Dreamlanders (Kirin J. Callinan, Laurence Pike, Donny Benet) reunite to play on the record, with Sharon Van Etten contributing vocals to two tracks.

Big Sean - Dark Sky Paradise (GOOD)

The album features guest appearances by Drake, Ariana Grande, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla Sign, Jhene Aiko, Lil Wayne, Partynextdoor, John Legend, and E-40. The album's production was primarily handled by Kanye West, along with additional production from DJ Mustard, Mike WiLL Made-It, Vinylz, among others.

Devo - Hardcore Live DVD (MVD)

Devo, captured live in Oakland, performing early experimental tracks written between 1974-77, prior to any label deal or public success. No matter how messy, beginnings are exciting. Especially when what happens next endures the test of time. For Devo, the beginning happened in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio. The songs they wrote were raw and unfiltered with no commercial intent. They called it Hardcore Devo. Performing 21 oddities, this is a tribute to departed, original Devo bandmate, Robert "Bob 2" Casale. Filmed live on June 28, 2014 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California.
