New Releases - December 2nd

Kevin Krauter - Changes LP/Tape (Winspear/Warm Ratio)

Last year, Kevin Krauter (of Hoops) recorded his debut EP while attending school in Muncie. The songs were a collection of old demos thrown together into a six-song EP for a friend's semester project. A year later, the same friend approached Krauter with the idea for another project. What resulted is a cohesive collection of songs that range from a multitude of influences from bossa nova to Americana. Each song is born from a different emotional/personal background, but they each follow a theme of change and growth. Using his solo work as an outlet for non-Hoops material, it is Krauter's first attempt at writing and recording a set of songs that flow together thematically while maintaining their own distinctive sound and feeling. "Reminds me of A Ghost Is Born-era Wilco or a more melodious Kurt Vile, but delivered with Grizzly Bear's delicate chamber-pop touch. It's really lovely" - Stereogum. FREE instore performance Saturday at 3pm!

Childish Gambino - Awaken My Love CD (Glassnote)

As Childish Gambino once again sheds his skin, Awaken My Love! is a sonic evolution. It has been described as R&B meets Pink Floyd, by one journalist while others have cited an amalgam of rock, funk, and soul influences. It is a groundbreaking next step following the genre blending STN MTN / Kauai mixtape and the twice-Grammy nominated rap album. Vinyl next year, hopefully.

Demdike Stare - Wonderland (Modern Love)

A project that came to life fueled by collector's obsession and a life-long willingness to dive head-first into unknown musical wormholes, Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty have never been defined by a singular musical trajectory. Their opening salvo of releases dabbled with the aesthetic of the occult and provided an alternate, parallax view of the Italian Library records with which they were both obsessed at the time, but as their long running mixtape series and brilliantly curated DDS label attest, their interests extend far outside the crevices of early electronic music and into dance music, dancehall, roots, jungle, techno, industrial, noise and beyond. Wonderland has been constructed with a narrative in mind- it's probably the most enjoyable and loose-limbed hour of music in their catalog, or that you'll likely hear in these weird, angst-ridden times.

Magnetic Fields - The Wayward Bus / Distant Plastic Trees 2LP (Merge)

The first two albums, on vinyl, for the first time. Distant Plastic Trees, from 1991 was composed and recorded electronically with virtually no live instruments. "This tinny and intimate recording, in quiet defiance of the reigning roar of pop music, recalls both the early, scratchy field recordings of folk music and the first experiments in electronic music- precisely the sort of stylistic balance the Magnetic Fields liked to achieve." The album includes the early-90s college radio single "100,000 Fireflies" was later covered by Superchunk. While both albums feature singer Susan Anway, the latter LP, from 1992, introduced several new players who would subsequently make regular appearances on Merritt's various musical projects.

The Rolling Stones - Blue & Lonesome CD/LP (Polydor)

Their first studio album in over a decade. Recorded in just three days in London, England, Blue & Lonesome takes the band back to their roots and the passion for blues music which has always been at the heart and soul of The Rolling Stones. Double heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with album download card.

Damien Jurado & Richard Swift - Other People's Songs Vol. 1 CD/LP (Secretly Canadian)

Over the weekend of August 21-22 2010, not long after Jurado & Swift first collaborated to produce Damien's 2010 record, Saint Bartlett, the pair hunkered down with a 4-track recorder and a ribbon microphone to record a collection of cover songs that run the gamut from John Denver to Chubby Checker to Kraftwerk. We can see the scaffolding of what would become a creative turning point for the pair - later seen with the release of Damien's Maraqopa, the first record in his Maraqopa trilogy. The opening drum hits of "Be Not So Fearful", the falsetto vocals of "Sweetness", and the Spaghetti-Western swing of "Radioactivity" are, by now, hallmarks of the Jurado/Swift sound, and makes this a transitional fossil, a marking of the pair's collaborative evolution.

VA - The Hamilton Mix Tape (Atlantic)

Musical companion to the landmark Broadway musical 2CD from Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. Executive produced by The Roots' Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and Tarik "Black Thought" Trotter, The Mixtape sees songs from the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical covered and remixed by a remarkable cast of contemporary artists. Superstars contributing to the one of its kind collection include Sia, Usher, Kelly Clarkson, The Roots, Alicia Keys, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Chance The Rapper, John Legend, Regina Spektor, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Miguel, Queen Latifah, Common, Ben Folds, Andra Day, Jill Scott, Jimmy Fallon, Busta Rhymes, Aloe Blacc, and more. The Hamilton Mixtape also includes three previously unreleased Hamilton demos.

Permit - Vol. 1 7" (Fat Possum)

Permit is a Bloomington based duo featuring Jack Andrew and Drew Auscherman (of Hoops). A love of 70s-80s classic rock, punk, and power pop heavily influenced both song structure and tone. The duo describes the tracks as "Thin Lizzy, but twice as fast" inreference to their tendency for speed laden guitar harmonies. The songs feel like fleeting, sub-2:00 bursts of hazy sunshine that never overstay their welcome.
