Spring has sprung! You need some new tunes for porch time, gardening, partying!

New Releases - April 29th

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Nonagon Infinity (ATO)

2nd release from the Australian psych rock/garage 7 piece on ATO Records, coming 6 months after Paper Mache Dream Balloon! Each of the nine, complex, blistering tracks on 'Nonagon Infinity' seamlessly flows into the next, with the final song linking straight back into the top of the opener like a sonic mobius strip. It's exactly the kind of ambitious vision that prompted Rolling Stone to dub the band "one of the most compelling collectives of art-rock experimentalists in recent years.

Brian Eno - The Ship (Warp)

Originally conceived from experiments with 3D recording techniques and formed in two, interconnected parts, The Ship is almost as much musical novel as traditional album. Eno brings together beautiful songs, minimalist ambience, physical electronics, omniscient narratives and technical innovation into a single, cinematic suite. The result is a record without parallel in his catalogue. The album opens with the 21-minute "The Ship" on which Eno's cyclically sung sea-chant builds in ominous drama.

Aesop Rock - The Impossible Kid (Rhymesayers)

Aesop continues to find new ways to improve on the skills that have made him one of the kings of indie hip-hop. His creative process now includes a newfound willingness to open up about his personal life, going deep on topics like depression, his sometimes rocky relationship with his family, and the turbulent handful of years that culminated in Aesop leaving his adopted home of San Francisco to live in a barn out in the woods. He also taps into the funny side of his persona that he suppressed during the period where being taken as a serious lyricist was more of a priority.

New Madrid - magnetking magnetqueen (Normaltown)

Years of relentless touring, hundreds of shows and several thousand hours playing together have yielded a battle-hardened brotherhood - a band on a mission. New Madrid's new record comprises a sprawling 15 tracks, equal parts groove and jangle, psyche and fuzz, rock, grit and slow burners. Co-produced with David Barbe (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Drive-By Truckers), it rewards the careful listener with unfolding layers of experimental soundscapes and grooves, bearing new discoveries with each listen.

Kyle Craft - Dolls of Highland (Sub Pop)

Kyle Craft grew up in a tiny Louisiana town on the banks of the Mississippi, where he spent most of his time catching alligators and rattlesnakes instead of playing football or picking up the guitar. He's not the product of a musical family, and bands never came through town. It was only a chance trip to K-Mart that gave him his first album, a David Bowie hits compilation that helped inspire him eventually to channel his innate feral energy into songwriting and rock and roll.

Egyptian Lover - 1983-1988 (Stones Throw)

Amazing collection of 22 essential tracks culled from 1983-88 from the pioneer of West Coast hip hop that brought electro rap to the masses in the early 80s and influenced DJs and MCs the world over such as Dr. Dre and the World Class Wrecking Crew, N.W.A + more! 2CD collection in Deluxe Packaging featuring 20 page booklet, liner notes and detailed song track history from Egyptian Lover!

Wrong - s/t (Relapse)

Miami's high-energy noise rock quartet WRONG (featuring ex-members of Torche, Kylesa and Capsule) unveil their full-length debut, a raucous and modern take on 90's grunge and alternative metal comprised of eleven riff-driven, powerhouse songs replete with battering grooves, dissonant melodies and cathartic vocals. WRONG play noise rock for a new millennium: this is one of the most infectious and captivating heavy debuts in years.

John Doe - The Westerner (Cool Rock)

Psychedelic soul from the Arizona desert. New album from the veteran singer/songwriter and guitar slinger from influential punk band X. Features Chan Marshall (Cat Power) & Debbie Harry (Blondie) among others. The Westerner was produced by Howe Gelb (Neko Case, M. Ward), Dave Way (Fiona Apple) and Doe. The album's artwork was designed by Shepard Fairey and Aaron Huey to support Native American rights via a campaign called Protect The Sacred.

The Jayhawks - Paging Mr. Proust (Thirty Tigers)

Paging Mr. Proust finds the 2016 Jayhawks still remain one of America's foremost rock bands: based around leader Gary Louris gift for melody that has made them such a respected and seminal group for almost three decades. From the jangle of album opener Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces to the trademark harmonies of Isabel's Daughter to the more pensive Lover Of The Sun, it is clear that The Jayhawks power remains undiminished from their initial national impact in 1992.

Plants and Animals - Waltzed In From The Rumbling (Secret City)

Plants and Animals are a Montreal-based trio that began playing together as kids. The influences are far and wide: the broken soul of Van Morrison; the off-kilter geometry of J Dilla; the dark, French funk of Serge Gainsbourg; the fire of John Coltrane's quartet; Messiaen's synaesthesia; the quirk of Angelo Badalamenti. It sounds like P&A, wide open with room to move. This is their most soulful and inventive collection of music yet. Eleven soundtracks for leaps taken, ships sailed, dark water and pink skies.

The Bo-Keys - Heartaches by the Number (Omnivore)

The Bo-Keys genesis happened when members of the Hi Records and Stax rhythm sections intersected with members of The Bar Kays and Gregg Allman band. The Bo-Keys have been together for nearly two decades, and Omnivore is proud to unleash their 3rd LP. The Memphis torchbearers explore the intersection of country, folk and soul. In addition to stunning originals, they include interpretations of classics from Hank, Merle, Dylan, Swamp Dogg, and Ray Price, to prove that the past will always inform the present.

Purson - Desire's Magic Theatre (Spinefarm)

Desire's Magic Theatre is a technicolour trip through the mind's eye of songstress / vocalist / guitarist Rosalie Cunningham, blending progressive complexity and cabaret romp into a compelling, multi-faceted rock 'n' roll show. Drawing inspiration from rock operas of the 60s and 70s, Sgt. Pepper's and Bohemian Rhapsody, from The Pretty Things SF Sorrow & The Small Faces' Ogden's Nut Gone Flake; musically, visually and lyrically, it touches folk, prog, psychedelic, gothic & classic rock.

The Boxer Rebellion - Ocean by Ocean (Kobalt)

Now in their 15th year as a band, and 3 years since the band's 4th album, Ocean By Ocean presents itself as an accomplished, beautifully orchestrated and impeccably freighted album, with a depth of emotion to every one of the 10 songs that lift each towards the hymnal. Produced in conjunction with Billy Bush (Garbage, Jake Bugg, Against Me!), the sound is brooding and ruminative.
