New Releases - April 21st

Kendrick Lamar - Damn (Aftermath)

His first release since last year's demos collection untitled unmastered, and his first formal record since 2015's To Pimp a Butterfly. There are only 3 announced guest stars: U2, Rihanna, and Zacari. Mike Will produced 3 songs. Bad Bad Not Good, Sounwave, DJ Dahi, and the Alchemist are credited on the album as producers. James Blake, too. Sounwave and Terrace Martin, who've been collaborating with Kendrick for years, are also credited. Kaytranada appears to feature on a song. Kendrick described the album as "very urgent". Features the new single Humble. LP version later this summer, hopefully!

Black Angels - Death Song (Partisan)

Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music on 'Death Song' serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease. "Currency," a strong contender for the heaviest song the band has ever put to wax, meditates on the governing role the monetary system plays in our lives, while slow-building psychedelic earworm "Half Believing" questions the nature and confusing realities of devotion. Recorded between Seattle and Austin, 'Death Song' features production from Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, Shins). The 11-track collection offers a sharply honed elaboration on their signature sound - menacing fuzz guitar and cutting wordplay, steeped in a murky hallucinatory dream. Glow in the dark LP only available Saturday for Record Store Day!

El Michels Affair - Return to the 37th Chamber (Big Crown)

The highly anticipated follow up to 2009's underground cult classic Enter the 37th Chamber. This time, in addition to re-interpreting the Wu-Tang Clan compositions for a live band, EMA pays homage to the production and sonic fog that makes a RZA beat so recognizable. Producer and bandleader Leon Michels recorded the album completely analog, sometimes hitting 6 generations of tape before it was ready for mixing, giving the Return to The 37th Chamber its own hazy sound. Adding to the unique fidelity, the record is laced with psychedelic flourishes, John Carpenter synths, heavy metal guitars, triumphant horns, and traditional Chinese instruments that make up for the lack of the Wu's superlative vocals. From start to finish it's a dark trip that walks the line between RZA's timeless hip-hop aesthetic and the cinematic soul EMA has become known for.

Tanika Charles - Soul Run (Record Kicks)

Soul Run is the debut album by raising soul star Tanika Charles. The album was co-produced by Slakah The Beatchild, best known for his collaborations with Drake. The album strikes a seamless balance between the warm vintage Motown soul sound, but contains a contemporary twist to it. A tricky thing to accomplish, however, Tanika has undeniably managed to achieve this, judging by the glowing reviews and support she's currently receiving from all around the globe. Growing up on a musical diet of Patti Labelle, Jill Scott, Bob James, Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo, Bjork and The Black Crowes, Charles' eclectic music taste subconsciously shines through.

The Raveonettes - 2016 Atomized (Beat Dies)

Now LA based, The Raveonettes are Sun Rose Wagner (guitar and vocals) and Sharin Foo (bass, guitar and vocals). Revered by the likes of Tom Petty, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Little Steven and Johnny Marr, to name but a few, the band continue to evolve sonically and visually as their live shows continue to captivate audiences around the world. Their music is characterized by close vocal harmonies combined with hard-edged electric guitar sounds and liberal doses of noise. Their songs juxtapose the simplicity of 50s and 60s rock with intense electric instrumentation, driving beats, and dark lyrical content.

Toby Foster - 100 Ways (Lauren / Lets Pretend)

"This is my first solo record in about 7 years. I'd like to think that I'm writing about a lot of the same things I always have, but hopefully with a more mature perspective." Having released his first solo album at the same time he moved to Bloomington, Foster thinks about change, saying "there are some underlying themes about being content with the place you are in, but also wondering if maybe it's time for a change. I do really love it here, but now I've spent almost my entire 20s in a small college town and worry that I am going to someday regret not making some more major changes."

Joe Goddard [Hot Chip] - Electric Lines (Domino)

Electric Lines, the landmark new album from producer Joe Goddard, is all about connections. It's an apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the broad-ranging strands of a unique career. Whether it be as a key member of Hot Chip, one half of the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, remixer or co-founder of the influential Greco-Roman label, Goddard's influence has been keenly felt in clubs and headphones all over the world for over a decade. Electric Lines is the culmination of all this and more, and confirms Joe Goddard's place in the front rank of British producers.

Ray Davies - Americana (Legacy)

This is Ray Davies' first new album in 10 years. Davies wrote and arranged all the music and co-produced the album, with the Jayhawks serving as his backing band. 'Americana' was recorded in London at Konk Studios, the legendary studio founded by The Kinks in 1973. The album is an autobiographical work, taking inspiration from the vital role America has played in Davies' life over five decades. It also features a number of short spoken-word passages from his memoir. In Davies' own words, "America is such a big story, a vast landscape, you can get lost in it. It's possible in America to go ahead and have a new start somewhere."

Sheryl Crow - Be Myself (WB)

For this album, Sheryl worked again with producer, musician, and songwriter Jeff Trott, a long-time collaborator throughout her career. Crow says her main goal was "to investigate what made my early songs strike people as being authentic and original. So for the first time in my life, I made it a point to sit down and really listen to my old records. I'd drive my kids to school and play the old stuff as I came back home. That helped me remember what it felt like when I was just beginning as an artist. But it wasn't about repeating myself. It was about revisiting where I came from and seeing where that would take me now."

Cait Brennan - Third (Omnivore)

"If you combined Harry Nilsson, Paul McCartney, Emitt Rhodes, and a touch of Jane Wiedlin into one person, you'd have Brennan, whose sound identifies clearly with the most timeless and idiosyncratic songwriters in rock & roll." -LA Weekly. She and producer Fernando Perdomo ventured off to the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis to record album #3, even before her second album had even been released. At this time, it is still in the can, waiting to be revisited at a later date. Given the location and inspiration, there was no doubt the album would be called Third. Recorded in the same studio with many of the original instruments used on Big Star classics.

Matthew Logan Vasquez - Does What He Wants (Dine Alone)

Sophomore album from the Delta Spirit frontman. It feels urgent and intense. Impatient landlords, financial woes and other frustrations fan the agitation embedded in the opening track, "Same." Isolation darkens the brooding images of "From Behind The Glass." Death takes a bow on "The Fighter." Vasquez can't help but juxtapose the celebration of "Fatherhood" with a lament that "we ain't got the money to pay the hospital." In the end, it turns out to feel pretty optimistic after all - a perfect statement for these times and possibly for some time to come.
