Calle 13 - Multiviral CD


Price:  $11.99


Multi Viral, Calle 13’s fifth and newest album, is a masterpiece. It is an album that has been developing since the beginning of Calle 13’s career. Calle 13 had help from Tom Morello, Julian Assange, John Leguizamo, Silvio Rodríguez, and more in this album. The duo finally found a way to express their thoughts in an eloquent and beautiful way without the need of appealing to anything but what they stand for. Hints of this can be seen in previous albums with songs like “Pal Norte,” “Latinoamérica,” and “La Perla,” but Multi Viral truly has it all. It includes inspirational songs such as “El Aguante,” and “Respira el Momento,” focused on people’s individual power to persevere. It includes songs like, “Gato Que Avanza, Perro Que Ladra,” “MultiViral,” and “Adentro,” charged with social and political commentary about government surveillance, the greed of the wealthy, and much more.

   


Death - III CD


Price:  $13.99


Archive collection from the proto-Punk band. Death III slams the door on the vault with a powerful set of songs that bring equal amounts of Rock and ethereal soul-searching, in high-fidelity, rich bottomed, studio-grade sound. Alongside songs from 1975, 1976 and 1980, Death III contains 2 songs from 1992, as the Hackney brothers reconvened nearly a decade after they'd stopped playing together. Death III serves as a companion piece of sorts to the A Band Called Death documentary, tracking the band's movement from spiritual young rockers to older and wiser, bruised-but-undefeated brothers, in pure musical terms.

   


Eels - Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett CD


Price:  $13.99


After last year's uncharacteristically upbeat Wonderful, Glorious album, The Cautionary Tales… finds Eels frontman E on more familiar ground. Across an intensely intimate 13 songs, he sings of love lost, soul-searching, recrimination, regret and, eventually, some sort of understanding and coming to terms with the mistakes he's made. The music matches the mood, quiet orchestration replacing the neo-hard-rock sounds of its predecessor, with the exception of the beautifully judged wistfulness of "Where I'm From". The subject matter may not be as harrowing as the real-life inspiration for some of his earlier work (most notably Electro-Shock Blues), but this is still a powerful and emotionally coherent set.

G. Love & Special Sauce - Sugar CD


Price:  $10.99


Combining their branded hip-hop blues sound and a raw live recording process, the original members of G. Love & Special Sauce returned to the studio for the first time in almost a decade to make their newest album, Sugar. Vocalist/guitarist/harmonica player Garrett Dutton, upright bassist James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott and drummer Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens are back with grit and swagger, and they get some help from guest musicians like Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo (on three racks), legendary vocalist Merry Clayton (best known for her duet with Jagger on The Rolling Stones’ "Gimme Shelter") and others. What started as an album about a breakup transformed into something with a broader reflection for G. Love, as he spits his truth about struggle, love and a Mississippi-flavored jam called the “Good Life.”

Leftover Salmon - Leftover Salmon CD

“The self-titled work was a collaboration with producer-friend Bill Payne of Little Feat. Mature yet playful, graceful yet dirty, it became apparent that Leftover Salmon was poised for out-and-out domination” writes Scott Caffrey
