New Release Round-Up 07-08-14

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's long-rumored and highly anticipated, CSNY 1974 captures the band's one-of-a-kind harmonic alchemy during its remarkable outdoor stadium tour, a trek that spanned more than two months and included 31 concerts, in 24 cities, with combined audiences of over a million people. Produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, the 40th anniversary CD features 16 live tracks, electric and acoustic, selected from the band's boxed set. The release is also available as a Deluxe Package with 3CDs and a DVD and also as a Pure Audio Blu-ray version.

Australian pop singer-songwriter Sia releases her sixth full-length album, 1000 Forms Of Fear and it seems destined that this will be the album that will rocket the singer out of relative obscurity to where she belongs at the forefront of the pop-music universe.  With her undeniably flawless songwriting skills this is probably Sia's finest body of work yet.

Among LA's newest bands is French Style Furs, made up of Cold War Kids' Nathan Willett and Matt Maust, plus Nathan Warkentin from We Barbarians and this week they release their debut album Is Exotic Bait. Equal parts punk and funk the album blends multiple genres in an energetic and enticing manner which never loses steam and appears to be an album that can only result from a band that is clearly having fun while pushing itself. 


Jon Allen - Deep RiverJon Allen knows song-writing. The acclaimed singer-songwriter from England releases his highly anticipated new album, Deep River via OK! Good Records in the US and Canada. 'Deep River' sees Allen paying tribute to great tunes of the past; mixing catchy Sixties-inflected rock, soul, and country blues, while waxing lyrical about relationships, moving on, and finding oneself. You can preview the album here and also check out the amazing performance video for his single Night & Day.



Bright Light Bright Light - Life Is EasyLife Is Easy builds on the success of Bright Light Bright Light's debut pop album championed by Billboard, Time Out, Sirius XM and Pet Shop Boys. Enlisting Elton John for a duet, Scissor Sisters' Del Marquis for guitar and vocals, and Iggy Azelia / Jessie J producers The Invisible Men for production, 'Life Is Easy' packs a pop punch to match major label offerings. The album is available for preview here and you can watch the video for the pop tastic lead single I Believe.





Plus there are other great, new releases including Goatwhore with Constricting Rage of the Merciless. This is their fourth studio outing with producer Erik Rutan at the helm, and to achieve an even more dark and powerful tone on this album, all drums, bass, and rhythm guitars were tracked to 2-inch tape! R&B/Soul singer-songwriter Leela James releases her fourth studio album Fall For You which features the title track single, a softhearted ballad produced by James herself and co-written with Rex Rideout (Ledisi, Babyface, Luther Vandross).  The Mastersons are now "poised to be one of Austin's breakout acts in 2014..." (Austin American Statesman) thanks to their sophomore album Good Luck CharmJudas Priest mark their 40th anniversary by offering up more classic metal with the release of Redeemer of Souls. Swedish 80's metal band Zone Zero finally get going with their album The Lost Legacy.  And in the early hours of New Years Day 2013, a radio astronomer at the Allen Telescope Array in northern California discovered a mysterious signal emanating from a star within the Ophiuchus Constellation. Contained within the signal was a Message--of human origin--foretelling the details of man's imminent demise. The Message was brought to The Starset Society, who quickly realized the importance of its immediate publication. Risking extreme danger, The Starset Society commissioned a group of musicians and scientists to assist them in spreading the knowledge to a broader audience. This group became known simply as STARSET.

World Peace Is None Of Your Business explores the tragedy of human apathy in our turbulent, modern era. Morrissey's career as a writer reaches new lyrical heights but maintains his signature humor, drama, and emotional longing.

While somewhat intimate and esoteric, “YES!” still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace.

New Release Round-Up 07-01-14

New Release Round-Up 07-01-14

Within weeks of the release of their acclaimed debut album Someday World, Brian Eno and Karl Hyde continue their collaboration as Eno.Hyde as they release their second full-length album, High Life.  Written and recorded across a series of recording sessions in April of 2014 (some of which were open to selected media from around the world), none of the music on High Life existed before Someday World was completed! The resulting record, at 6 tracks and 45 minutes, is the clearest expression yet of the 'Reichkuti' (Steve Reich meets Fela Kuti) direction that first brought the Eno Hyde collaboration into being.


Old Crow Medicine Show  - RemedyThe Americana bluegrass string band Old Crow Medicine Show continue to maintain their sound as heard on their previous albums while embracing new techniques and directions on their eighth effort Remedy. This release marks the follow up to 2012's Carry Me Back and includes the track "Sweet Amarillo" which, like previous recording and band signature tune "Wagon Wheel," is a reinterpretation of music by Bob Dylan. You can preview the album here and also check out the album trailer video which gives you a perfect taste of their incredible album.

Multi-platinum alternative rock trio Seether release their highly anticipated, sixth studio album Isolate And Medicate via The Bicycle Music Company/Concord Music Group. The band has again teamed with ace producer Brendan O'Brien (Springsteen, Pearl Jam) to deliver the most poignant, passionate, and powerful record of their career. Having racked up seventeen Top 5 multi-format hits including eleven #1 singles, Seether, Billboard's 2011 Active Rock Artist of the Year, is gearing up for another long, prolific run on the nation's airwaves.

Grammy nominated soul singer, musician and songwriter Robin Thicke returns with his brand new album. Written and produced entirely by Robin, Paula features the brand new hit single “Get Her Back” and is sure to set the charts alight once again this summer.

Plus there are other great, new releases including Canadian pop reggae act Magic! who release their major-label debut, Don't Kill the Magic. The album sees the band continuing their sound from the lead single "Rude" by fusing pop and reggae with a hint of indie rock. The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume 3 is the long awaited release from the late, great Levon Helm, collecting standout performances from the legendary Midnight Ramble concerts held at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY. Jethro Tull release their beautifully packaged 2CD/2DVD case-bound book expanded edition of A Passion Play which includes the original album and earlier Château d'Hérouville Sessions both of which have been mixed to 5.1 surround sound and new stereo mixes by Steven Wilson. Trey Songz's sixth studio album Trigga serves as his most personal album to date. With his first single "Na Na" blazing up the chart with old school samples, he solidifies his placement as one of the best artists over the past ten years to blend the sounds of hip hop, R&B, and pop. Corrosion of Conformity once again excite their legion of fans, the trio presents their ninth studio album, simply titled IX.  And In 1988 New Jersey spent 4 straight weeks at No. 1 in the U.S. and spawned five Top 10 singles ('Bad Medicine;' 'Born To Be My Baby;' 'I'll Be There For You;' 'Living In Sin;' and 'Lay Your Hands On Me') - the only rock album in history with that many Top 10 hits. Bon Jovi originally envisioned the New Jersey project as a double-LP, using the working title Sons Of Beaches. But in the end, Mercury Records released the album as a 12-track single LP and the band renamed it simply New Jersey, in honor of their home state. With this Deluxe Edition, the New Jersey originally imagined by Bon Jovi can finally be shared with fans.

The title of this David Cronenberg sci-fi horror film refers to a group of people who have telekinetic powers that allow them to read minds and give them the ability to make other people's heads explode. The children of a group of women who took an experimental tranquilizer during their pregnancies, the scanners are now adults and have become outcasts from society. But Darryl Michael Ironside decides to create an army of scanners to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is his brother Cameron Stephen Lack, who wants to forget that he was ever a scanner. Winner of the International Fantasy Film Award at the 1983 Fantasporto Film Festival, Scanners was followed by a pair of sequels, neither of which involved Cronenberg.

Director Robert Bresson chose Uruguayan nonactor Martin LaSalle for his leading man in Pickpocket. LaSalle's inexperience works against the film for some viewers, though Bresson himself was satisfied because his star proved himself a quick study in the art of lifting wallets a genuine pickpocket was engaged as "technical adviser". Essentially, the story is a character study of a cocky young criminal who becomes so entranced by the act of picking pockets that he literally can't stop himself. The Bressonian technique of concentrating more on the mechanics of the plot than the emotions of the characters is, as always, a matter of taste. Filmed in 1959, Pickpocket was released in the US in 1963. Loosely inspired by Feodor Dostoyevsky's novel Crime and Punishment.
