CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: Milky Chance releases their sophmore album Blossom on 3/17. The first single Cocoon, inspired by trying to find a period of reflection on the runaway success of their first album has already reached Top 25 at Alternative Radio. Time describes the song as Somewhere between the folksy rock of Vampire Weekend and the haunting electropop of Beach House, adding that it s, low-key alt-rock that appeals to indie listeners and mainstream pop fans. Indie Shuffle writes, They have wonderfully upbeat songs and can also put on a pretty solid live performance, and Indie Obsessive claims, The band s sound combines deep, organic warmth instrumental arrangements and it also brings forth a palpable sense of returning to a place of serenity.

Milky Chance embarks on a string of international & US tour dates kicking off in London on February 13th. It will be their first tour with new music since the release of Sadnecessary three years ago; the album that brought us the multiplatinum global hit Stolen Dance.

IN MIND (Real Estate)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
Real Estate

Genre:
Alternative Rock

Total Length:
44:52

Label:
Domino Recording Co

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: On In Mind the band fine-tunes the winsome songwriting and profound earnestness that made previous albums—Real Estate, Days, and Atlas—so beloved and pushes their songs in compelling new directions. Written primarily by guitarist/vocalist Martin Courtney In Mind offers a mild shifting of the gears, positing a band engaged in the push/pull of burgeoning adulthood. Reflecting a change in lineup, changes in geography, and a general desire to move forward without looking back, the record recasts the band in a new light — one that replaces the ennui of teen suburbia with an adult version.


TRACK LIST:

1. Darling (4:20)

2. Serve The Song (3:13)

3. Stained Glass (3:54)

4. After The Moon (4:50)

HOT THOUGHTS (Spoon)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
Spoon

Genre:
Alternative Rock

Total Length:
41:53

Label:
Matador Records

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: Hot Thoughts is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of Spoon’s career. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the quintet both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about this band are about to be obliterated. That’s not to say Hot Thoughts doesn’t have a requisite supply of infectious earworms but there’s a lyrical bent that’s as carnal as it’s crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genresmasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not fully consummated. Co-produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann and reunited with Matador Records (third time’s the charm), let's acknowledge that Britt Daniel’s spot in the pantheon of rock’s genius songwriters was well established a ways back, but with the crackling, incandescent, multi-dimensional backdrop conjured on ‘Hot Thoughts’, the lines between accessible and experimental become non-factors for once and all. It’s pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.


TRACK LIST:

1. Hot Thoughts (3:48)

2. WhisperI'lllistentohearit (4:20)

3. Do I Have to Talk You Into It (4:20)

4. First Caress (2:49)

5. Pink Up (5:57)

6. Can I Sit Next to You (3:54)

7. I Ain't the One (3:48)

8. Tear It Down (4:20)

9. Shotgun (3:38)

10. Us (4:59)




SCATTERBRAIN (KXM)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
KXM

Genre:
Rock, Metal

Total Length:
66:44

Label:
Rat Pak Records

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, iTunes


Product Description: 2017 sophomore release from the super-group featuring drummer Ray Luzier (KoRn), guitarist George Lynch (Lynch Mob) and King's X front- man dUg Pinnick. This is the follow up album to their highly successful 2014 self-titled debut release which landed at #31 on the Billboard Top 200. Scatterbrain features 13 brand new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse studio in North Hollywood California where the band once again tapped Chris "The Wizard" Collier (Flotsam & Jetsam/Prong/Last In Line) to engineer the new effort. From the infectious riff of the album opener "Scatterbrain" to the outro of "Angel," KXM have created something truly special and musically diverse. Songs like "Breakout," "Calypso," and "True Deceivers" are sonically different from each other taking the listener on a musical journey. Scatterbrain is thematically a darker record than the debut. The album builds upon the developed KXM rock sound but this time includes some different dynamics drawing inspiration from prog, ska, punk and metal. Through it all, it remains undeniably KXM.


TRACK LIST:

1. Scatterbrain (5:07)

2. Breakout (5:10)

3. Big Sky Country (4:36)

4. Calypso (5:28)

5. Not a Single Word (4:59)

7. Noises in the Sky (5:30)

8. Panic Attack (5:20)

9. It's Never Enough (3:52)

10. True Decievers (3:49)

11. Stand (5:09)

12. Together (5:22)

13. Angel (6:45)

Artist:
Tedeschi Trucks Band

Label:
Fantasy Records

Purchasing Links:
MP3, CD, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: Live From the Fox Oakland captures the band firing on all cylinders at their Sept 9, 2016 show that fans and band members regard as one of their finest performances to date. The band's commitment to making the best sounding live recording possible is evident throughout.

THE GREAT COLLAPSE (Fit for An Autopsy)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
Fit for An Autopsy

Genre:
Metal

Total Length:
39:48

Label:
eOne Music

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, as it’s devoid of preachy politics or grandstanding soapboxing, but its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive-force fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fourth album, The Great Collapse, doesn’t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene. They embrace the responsibility to put as much devoted purpose into their lyrics and message as they do into their dense, heady, songs, forging a magnificently powerful new post-deathcore.


TRACK LIST:

1. Hydra (4:16)

2. Heads Will Hang (4:13)

3. Black Mammoth (4:38)

4. Terraform (3:47)

5. Iron Moon (3:18)

6. When The Bulbs Burn Out (4:14)

7. Too Late (4:14)

8. Empty Still (5:44)

9. Spiral (5:24)




LIVE NORTH AMERICA 2016 (Gary Clark Jr.)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
Gary Clark Jr.

Genre:
Rock

Total Length:
1:14:19

Label:
Warner Bros.

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: Back when music was only available on a vinyl album, the pure excitement captured on a live album was considered the ultimate document coveted by hardcore music fans. Clark continues this tradition by bringing the live album to a younger generation of music fans. Live North America 2016 was recorded absolutely live, with no overdubs. What you hear is how it went down.

The album includes all new and unreleased live recordings from Gary Clark Jr's 2016 tour in support of his internationally acclaimed 2015 album The Story of Sonny Boy Slim. It features several songs from that album, including "The Healing," "Grinder," "Our Love," "Cold-Blooded," and "Shake," featuring Leon Bridges and his saxophonist Jeff Dazey. The set is characterized by raw soul and funk, classic solo and blues performances, and severallengthy, tour de force guitar jams. It includes two previously unreleased covers, Jimmy Reed's "Honest I Do" and Elmore James' "My Baby's Gone" as well as "You Saved Me" and "When My Train Pulls In" - fan favorites from Clark's Warner Bros. Records critically praised debut Blak and Blu.

Clark's incendiary performances were also beautifully captured on Gary Clark Jr. Live, which was released in September 2014 and met with tremendous critical and commercial acclaim. Both live albums chronicle Clark's evolution on stage as his songs expand and find new life beyond the studio recordings. Much like the great blues, jazz, and soul legends of past, these recordings are lightening in a bottle - historical moments in time for an artist who is ever-morphing and one of the truly great improvisers of his generation and our time.


TRACK LIST:

1. Grinder (Live) (5:02)

2. The Healing (Live) (5:38)

3. Our Love (Live) (7:50)

4. Cold Blooded (Live) (5:34)

5. When My Train Pulls In (Live) (9:30)

6. Down to Ride (Live) (7:06)

7. You Saved Me (Live) (8:53)

8. Shake (feat. Leon Bridges with Jeff Dazey) [Live] (4:09)

9. Church (Live) (6:02)

10. Honest I Do (Live) (3:12)

11. My Baby's Gone (Live) (4:05)

12. Numb (Live) (7:18)




SCORE (2CELLOS)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
2CELLOS

Genre:
Classical Crossover

Total Length:
61:02

Label:
Sony Masterworks

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: 2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, go to the movies for their new album Score. Bringing 2CELLOS' game-changing sound and style to the most popular melodies ever written for classic and contemporary movies and television, Score finds Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser exploring a more traditional sound-world. Joining them here to provide the ideal aural backdrop to their virtuosity is the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor/arranger Robin Smith at the helm. Sulic and Hauser also co-produced Score with Nick Patrick (Jackie Evancho, Il Divo, Placido Domingo).

On Score, themes that drove some of the biggest block-busters in film and television history are featured in fresh new treatments including an arrangement of Ramin Djawadi's melodies that score Game of Thrones, Oscar-winning themes from James Horner's Titanic ("My Heart Will Go On"), John Williams' Schindler's List and Vangelis's Chariots of Fire, as well as "For the Love of a Princess" from Braveheart (also by Horner); "May It Be" from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (introduced in the film by Enya); and the inspiring "Now We Are Free" from Gladiator, by the film's composer Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerrard and Klaus Badelt.

The vocal beauty of the cello's sound is also a perfect match for a brace of romantic themes, which include the Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer song "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's; Ennio Morricone's beautiful themes for Cinema Paradiso and Malena; Nino Rota's love theme for The Godfather; Francis Lai's Oscar-winning theme from Love Story; Hans Zimmer's theme from Rain Man; and Stanley Myers' haunting "Cantilena" heard in The Deer Hunter.

2CELLOS have forged a signature style that breaks down the boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. As impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out, Sulic and Hauser know no limits when it comes to performing live. They have sold out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim. 2CELLOS are the first instrumentalists to be featured on Glee. They have also appeared multiple times on The Today Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show in addition to The Tonight Show, The Bachelor Live Wedding Special among others.

Yoonie Han, a specialist in this repertoire, is a brilliant advocate for this evocative Suite that captures the art and musical styles of Spain. A follow-up to her praised first release on the Steinway label, "Love and Longing," which was praised for its heartfelt performances and harmonically fulfilling recording, this new album offers the complete Goyescas, recorded at the new Steinway Hall in New York City. "Yoonie Hall has gleaned considerable note for her victories at selected competitions. A pupil of Eleanor Sokoloff, Robert McDonald, and Philippe Entremont, she possesses an articulate combination of fluency and poetic feeling." (Audiophile Audition)
