New Releases - March 16th

Yo La Tengo - There's A Riot Going On (Matador)

There's a riot going on. You don't need me, or Yo La Tengo, to tell you that. There are times that call for anthems, something to lift you out of your slump and put fire in your feet. And sometimes what is needed is a balm, a sound that will wrap around you and work out the knots in your neck. For Yo La Tengo, this is a slow-motion action painting. Ira, Georgia, and James did it all themselves, in their rehearsal studio, with no engineer and no complicated equipment (John McEntire later assisted in mixing). They did not rehearse together beforehand; they turned on the recorder and let things coalesce. The sound burbles and washes and flows and billows. If records were dedicated to the cardinal elements, this one would be water. There are shimmery hazes, spectral rumbles, a flash of backward masking.

Hot Snakes - Jericho Sirens (Sub Pop)

Swami John Reis and Rick Froberg have been making noises together since high school. In 1986 it was the post-hardcore chime of Pitchfork. In 1991 it was the sprawling, multi-faceted arrangements of Drive Like Jehu. In 1999 it was the lean, mean swagger of Hot Snakes. Hot Snakes streamlined Jehu's complex compositions and emerged as bona fide downstroke warlords. They made 3 albums of high-velocity, slash-your-face, piss-punk: 2000's Automatic Midnight, 2002's Suicide Invoice and 2004's Audit in Progress. (all 3 now reissued on CD/LP!) Musically, the new album incorporates the most extreme fringes of the Hot Snakes sound, while staying true to longstanding influences such as the Wipers, Dead Moon, and Suicide.

Mount Eerie - Now Only (Elverum)

Hopefully arriving later today. Now Only, written shortly following the release of A Crow Looked At Me and the first live performances of those songs, is a deeper exploration of that style of candid, undisguised lyrical writing. It portrays Elverum's continuing immersion in the strange reality of Genevieve's death, chronicling the evolution of his relationship to her and her memory, and of the effect the artistic exploration of his grief has had on his own life. The scope of Now Only encompasses not only hospitals and deathbeds, but also a music festival, childhood memories of conversations with Elverum's mother, profound paintings and affecting artworks he encounters, a documentary about Jack Kerouac, and most significantly, memories of his life with Genevieve.

The Decemberists - I'll Be Your Girl (Capitol)

The Decemberists explore a new sound on their inspired 8th album. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band worked with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Ray) and embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path, as evidenced on synth-driven lead single "Severed."

Evening Standards - s/t [tape] (Basement Pop)

New jams from Chris (Fat Shadow, Landlord, Purple 7, The Door-Keys, Obechoir), Daun (Vera Maleta, Early Day Miners, Fat Shadow, The Door-Keys, Thee Open Sex, Narcisissy), and Cole (ADD/C, Big Kitty, Future Virgins, Zippers To Nowhere). The sound- that sweet rock'n'roll betwixt Dead Moon and X. Recorded in glorious mono, Mixed, Mastered by Mike Bridavsky at Russian Recording.

Durand Jones & The Indications - s/t (Dead Oceans)

Unless you've been living under a log for a few years, if you live in Bloomington, you probably know DJ&tI by now. Durand and Co. brings you fiery soul music, pairing soaring vocal work with dusty drums, slinking guitars and screaming organs. Their self-titled debut has now been picked up for wider distribution by Dead Oceans. Now you can grab it on a red vinyl LP as well as CD. Sure to satisfy fans of Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Aloe Blacc, and Leon Bridges. Get ready to tell everyone that you knew em when.

NRBQ - debut [reissue] (Omnivore)

The New Rhythm And Blues Quintet formed over 50 years ago, and after playing together for a few years, the band began recording with Eddie Kramer and inked a two-record deal with Columbia Records. Their eponymous debut appeared on shelves in 1969, featuring the band's wide-ranging originals peppered with versions of songs from artists as wide-ranging as Eddie Cochran and Sun Ra, plus a co-write between the band's Terry Adams and Jazz experimentalist Carla Bely. It was, and is, a wildly original and influential release. For all of its stature, it's hard to believe in its 49-year existence, it has never been reissued, nor ever appeared on CD. Gatefold LP available, too!
