In case you missed the announcement, Jenny Lewis' new band is now opening for M. Ward on 6/13 at the Bluebird. Tix are still avail!

New Releases - May 27th

Austin Lucas - Between The Moon & The Midwest (Last Chance)

Between The Moon And The Midwest marries traditional & cosmic country sounds with sharp, vivid storytelling in a fully realized album concept. From the country-gold sound of "Unbroken Hearts", the infectious "Ain't We Free", to the plaintive truths in "Wrong Side of the Dream" and "The Flame", Austin delivers an album at once timeless and modern. Boosted by guest appearances from John Moreland, Lydia Loveless, and Cory Branan, the album finds Lucas at the top of his game and taking his music into exciting new territory.

The Monkees - Good Times (Rhino)

The highly anticipated new album by The Monkees is the band's first new album in 20 years and tied to their 50th anniversary and tour. All 3 surviving band members (Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork) take turns on lead vocals, play a wide range of instruments, and share new compositions. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal on the Neil Diamond-penned "Love To Love." Produced by Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy). Includes tracks written specifically for the band by Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, Andy Partridge of XTC, as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher (Oasis) and Paul Weller (The Jam).

Beth Orton - Kidsticks (Anti)

Co-produced by Beth and Andrew Hung (Fukc Buttons), Kidsticks reframes Beth's unmistakable voice inside ten pure, audacious, playful and kinetic songs. A resolutely focused album, it represents a rare chance to hear an established artist get plugged in and completely rework the songwriting process with wide-eyed, open-minded glee.

Kristin Kontrol - X-Communicate (Sub Pop)

Over the course of 3 LPs, 4 EPs, and an array of singles, Dum Dum Girls morphed from the girl-group-gone-bad moves of their debut, to plush noir-pop of 2014's Too True, a dark heart burning bright. In 2015, she decided to shed her skin, ditching Dee Dee for her real name, Kristin, and adding Kontrol. Arguably the biggest shift, beyond the music itself, is that as Kristin Kontrol she tells her stories using a sonic palette splashed with bold pop melodies, her vocals showcasing a range hitherto unexplored on record. The songs that emerge from Kristin's universe - a menagerie of new wave and R&B, European synth pop, and experimental disco - are both familiar and unique, using genre rather than adhering to it, with a distinct nod to the present.

Flume - Skin (Mom + Pop)

More than any other high-profile release since the new dawn of crossover EDM, Flume's Skin -a 16-track odyssey of drops, booms, and well-crafted bliss- reflects the state and times of the genre. Half of the material is purely commercial, with Flume looking to score his own "Wake Me Up," "Lean On," or "Latch," while the other half buzzes with fascinating, insular experiments. Featuring collaborations from Beck, Raekwon, MNDR, Little Dragon, and Tove Lo.

Travis - Everything at Once (Caroline)

New release from the heralded Scottish band, their eighth studio release and follow up to 2013's Where You Stand. Everything at Once is their liveliest and most lighthearted effort to date, a celebration of both their legacy and their maturity.

Catfish & The Bottlemen - The Ride (Capitol)

Catfish and the Bottlemen make no bones about their stadium-level ambitions. For years, they claim in interviews, the Welsh four-piece have thought of themselves on the scale of bands like Arctic Monkeys and Oasis, seeking to make music that simultaneously induces dancing and feels, songs that strike at both the heart and the instinct. They began that process with their raw 2014 debut, The Balcony, and that growth continues on The Ride, which sounds like the sonic manifestation of an upgrade in concert billing. The hooks are bigger; the band is tighter; there's more self-conscious confidence, as if the album were composed on a stage.

Withered - Grief Relic (Season Of Mist)

Georgia has churned out a bumper crop of melodic and progressive sludge acts like Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa, and Black Tusk, but Withered always had more in common with classic Florida death metal and obscure Norwegian black metal. Neither the bands they came up alongside nor their own musical influences shared the elegiac sound and introspective lyrics, though, and so Withered remained a wholly separate entity, caught between two worlds and sworn to none. Fitting its title, Grief Relic sounds old and gloomy. They've written an emotional death metal record that meditates on the inevitability of human suffering, drawing on the warmth of an analog production to drive its point home.

Big Thief - Masterpiece (Saddle Creek)

Big Thief's music, rooted in the songs of Adrianne Lenker, paints in vivid tones. Their debut album is filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Adrianne's voice and guitar playing speak of rich emotional territory with grace and insight. In her words, the record tracks "the masterpiece of existence, which is always folding into itself, people attempting to connect, to both shake themselves awake and to shake off the numbness of certain points in their life. The interpretations might be impressionistic or surrealistic, but they're grounded in simple things. Opening for M Ward on 6/13!

Daniel Romano - Mosey (New West)

Daniel refuses to be confined to narrow classification - in fact, out of necessity he created his own genre: Mosey Music. With his 5th solo record, we get a fresh new vista into the mind of the prolific singer-songwriter, the masterful lyricist and the multi-instrumentalist. New sonic territories are mapped, genres are splintered, conventional rules discarded. Imagine Rolling Thunder Revue era Bob Dylan conspiring with Lee Hazlewood, Tom Waits and Peter Green. You'll hear heavy swells of fuzzed out electric guitar, horns, and keys delivered with a fire and fury that demands your attention.
