New Releases on CD for Friday March 24th (03/24)

The Following are some of the releases on CD that we are most excited for, but is by no means a comprehensive list, there there just too many awesome releases to cover all of them!

Bug Vs. Earth – Concrete Desert

$13.99

addcart

Despite the similarities between noise and heavy music, the pairing of the Bug’s Kevin Martin and Earth’s Dylan Carlson still makes for a bit of a curious contrast. The UK-born Martin traffics in chest-compressing beats, drawing on a lineage spanning from dancehall through grime and dubstep. Earth, meanwhile, is a Washington state doom band that trudges with an ambient, codeine-hazed pace. In other words, this electronic collaboration, Concrete Desert, is one man’s looming sonic claustrophobia versus another’s sprawling open space.

But dig into the nuances of their catalogs—like the sparse first-half of the Bug’s 2014 album Angels & Devils, or the low-end of Earth’s heatstruck churn on that year’s Primitive and Deadly—and it begins to make sense. Forget genre or even structure: Martin and Carlson value pressure. They revel in the attack and release of slow-building drone grooves and the contrast between thumping bass and a floating tempo. Concrete Desert sees them finding common ground, though there’s more debt to minimal, tense electronic music than dust-bleached rock. The beats themselves are sparer than most of what you’d expect from a producer like Martin, who is so steeped in dance, and Carlson adds a pensive quality, showing what Martin can build when he makes music to stop moving to.

Eliane Elias – Dance Of Time

$14.99

addcart

Dance of Time builds upon the success of the 2015 release Made in Brazil but delivers its own distinctive sound by providing a contemporary play on classic Brazilian songs from Elias’ youth and musical career. Elias, once again wears many hats on Dance of Time as producer, composer, lyricist, arranger, pianist and vocalist. Along with co-producers, Steve Rodby and Marc Johnson, her bass playing musical partner, Elias ventured ‘home’ and recruited a splendid cast of Brazilian musicians that include electric bassist Marcelo Mariano; guitarists Marcus Teixeira and Conrado Goys; drummers Edu Ribeiro and Celso de Almeida; and percussionists Gustavo di Dalva and Marivaldo dos Santos. Other featured musical guests include Joao Bosco, Randy Brecker, Amilton Godoy, Mark Kibble, Mike Mainieri and Toquinho.

Diamanda Galas – All The Way

$13.99

addcart

All the Way is a collection of radical re-workings of traditional and jazz standards such as “All the Way”, “You Don’t Know What Love Is”, and “The Thrill Is Gone” (made famous by Chet Baker). It also includes a solo piano interpretation of Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight”, and live voice and piano interpretations of the American traditional “O Death” and the country song, “Pardon Me I’ve Got Someone to Kill”. The album includes both electric live performances (recorded in Paris, Copenhagen, and East Sussex) and studio recordings made in San Diego, CA.

Steve Hackett – Night Siren

$15.99

addcart

2017 release, the 25th studio album from guitarist Steve Hackett, best known for his work with Genesis. The album features numerous artists and instruments from a variety of countries, including vocalists Kobi Farhi and Mr ‘Awa, from Israel and Palestine respectively, and a sitar from India, a tar from the Middle East, the charango from Peru, which Hackett brought home after visiting the country, and the uilleann pipes from Ireland. Parts of the album were recorded in Sardinia and Hungary, and involved a session of musicians from Iceland, Azerbaijan, Israel and Palestine working side by side, “proving that it is possible for people not to just coexist in peace but also do something extraordinary artistically together”.

Jesus & Mary Chain – Damage & Joy

$14.99

addcart

ether they’re playing 15-minute gigs or taking 19 years between albums, the Jesus and Mary Chain have always put a lot of care into the appearance of not giving a fuck. Ever since they first erected their wall of squall on 1985’s Psychocandy, brothers Jim and William Reid have remained permanent residents of a world where sunglasses never come off, cigarette smoke doubles as dry ice, and the only illumination is provided by strobe light. None of the albums they’ve released since has sounded quite the same, but they all invariably feel the same. As the Mary Chain’s first full-length since the late ’90s proves, it will take more than a nearly two-decade recording hiatus to diminish the band’s intrinsic ultraviolet vibe.

Despite the epic lag between releases, Damage and Joy feels very much like a logical extension of its predecessor, 1998’s seeming swan song Munki, because the Reids had been unwittingly leaving a breadcrumb trail between the two records this whole time. Half of its 14 tracks are re-recordings of songs that were previously released in some form—as Jim Reid solo releases or as part of their sister Linda’s Sister Vanilla venture. In the case, of “All Things Pass,” it’s a revved-up revamp of the lone song the Mary Chain have officially released since the Reids buried the hatchet back in 2007 (because, presumably, leaving it for dead on the “Heroes” soundtrack seemed too ignoble a fate). Jim recently told Pitchfork that all those castaway tracks “really should have been Mary Chain songs,” if only the brothers’ notoriously combative relationship hadn’t deep-sixed the band after Munki.

Paul McCartney – Flowers In The Dirt

$17.99

addcart

One of the most critically acclaimed albums of the eighties, nominated for both BRIT and Grammy Awards, Flowers In The Dirt saw Paul McCartney team up with Elvis Costello to cowrite a third of the album (‘My Brave Face’, ‘You Want Her Too’, ‘Don’t Be Careless Love’ and ‘That Day is Done’) as well as boasting production credits from producers such as Mitchell Froom, Trevor Horn, David Foster, Steve Lipson, Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney himself. Pink Floyd guitar legend David Gilmour makes an appearance on ‘We Got Married’ and George Martin’s string arrangement on ‘Put It There’ is amongst the many album highlights.

Pallbearer – Heartless

$14.99

addcart

2017 release. The third full-length by Pallbearer is their most crucial, massive, and powerful yet. With this natural progression from it’s predecessor, Foundations Of Burden, one of the most acclaimed metal albums of 2014, the band expands their sound further by harnessing classic traditional metal and the prog aesthetic even more while remaining true to the essence of their signature sound. A sonic monolith to behold, the album embraces a bigger production and sound than any of the band’s previous releases. This creative peak sets a new standard in modern-day American metal. Heartless was tracked and recorded direct to analog at Fellowship Sound Studios in their hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, mixed by producer Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age, Soundgarden, Judas Priest), and mastered by Dave Collins (Metallica, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Howard Shore).

Pink Floyd – 1965-67 Cambridge St/ation Box Set

$46.99

Pink Floyd – 1968 Germin/ation Box Set

$42.99

addcart

This volume explores the time immediately after Syd Barrett’s departure, when Pink Floyd were still writing singles and at the same time developing their own unique, more instrumentally-based style. There are non-album single releases, plus a recently discovered session at Capitol Records studios in Los Angeles, BBC sessions and other tracks.

DVD/Blu-ray includes the recently restored promo clip of Point Me At The Sky, some international TV performances and a selection of song material from other television shows:

-Early singles, BBC Radio sessions
-Tracks from Capitol Studios, LA
-Promo clip, TV appearances, rare footage

Tuxedo – Tuxedo II

$10.99

addcart

II is an eleven song offering that mixes elements of funk, soul, and dance music to deeply infectious effect. Across the entire album, Jake and Mayer demonstrate their prowess as veterans of the aforementioned genres.
