New Releases on CD for July 19th (07/19)

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!

Flaming Lips – King’s Mouth

$12.99

addcart

 

The new album by The Flaming Lips is a head trip — literally. The ever-evolving, mind-blowing alt-rockers have somehow upped their game with a concept album and accompanying art project that takes us into a giant head. Weird? Yes. Thrilling? Of course. This is the Lips, after all.

“King’s Mouth: Music and Songs” is a beautifully crafted psychedelic album that may remind you of early Genesis in its musicianship and ambition. Some songs, like the cinematic “Mother Universe” are instrumental, others have sound effects and the album is narrated by The Clash’s Mick Jones.

None of the dozen songs on the album are predictable, even in the same song. “The Sparrow” morphs from an industrial lullaby to a funky Nine Inch Nails-like dance tune and back again. Other standout tracks include the childhood-evoking “How Many Times” and the funky “Feedaloodum Beedle Dot.”

The music parallels frontman Wayne Coyne’s immersive art installation of the same name that takes onlookers into a 10-foot tall chrome head, where they sit on teeth-shaped foam pillows and experience a pulsing light show triggered by the Lips’ music. It sounds like peak Flaming Lips.

Gov’t Mule – Bring On The Music: Live at The Capitol Theatre

$18.99

addcart

 

Long now a quartet with keyboardist Danny Louis, and with bassist Jorgen Carlsson, Gov’t Mule celebrate their silver jubilee with Bring on the Music – Live at the Capitol Theatre.

The iconic band covers many of its bases here by buffeting the blues of Blind Willie Johnson with crafty finesse, reigniting the engines of Grand Funk Railroad, covering themselves in thick Pearl Jam, riding the old new wave reggae of the Police, recreating a traditional folk song, stepping into the jazz-fusion pyramid of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and twirling with the Grateful Dead. But this milestone celebration mostly, rightfully, focuses on the remarkable songs of Warren Haynes and his bandmates. Their anthem “Mule” had to be present in all its relentless, blues-anchored glory. The elevated, lovely soul of “Beautifully Broken” bops until it implodes. “Mr. Man” rages like a Black Sabbath cauldron, intense in attitude, and stoked by Warren Haynes’ ripping guitar. In a most impressive coupling, “Larger Than Life,” the marauding, pouncing cat that it is, slides into the confessional, pleading love song “The Man I Want To Be.” That dichotomy might seem contradictory, but this band is defined by its seamless marriage of feel, no matter the tone, tempo, or source. There’s a beginning, a constant crescendo, and an end to everything they present.

Tuxedo Tuxedo III

$12.99

addcart

 

The L.A.-based duo of Mayer Hawthorne and and Jake One, collectively known as Tuxedo, was ahead of the mainstream pack upon the arrival of its self-titled 2013 EP. Boasting the Zapp-influenced bouncer “So Good” and the caressing slow-jam “Get U Home,” the guys’ sleek brand of west coast funk undoubtedly provided a few hints for both Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, with “Uptown Funk” and “24K Magic” building upon their old-school vibe—albeit with a more commercial vocal approach.

Tuxedo aims to broaden its base via numbers such as the hook-centered ditty “Gabriel’s Groove” and the lowrider swayer “Dreaming in the Daytime,” which includes an underwhelming rhyme slot by MF Doom. Still, the vocal harmonies are on point and the body-callin’ rhythm pattern tight throughout. A seamless continuation of previous shining entries such as “Lost Lover” and “Watch the Dance,” the uncomplicated “You & Me” delights with lightly poppin’ percussive effects amidst a bubbly beat and sophisticated keyboard work. This example of sticking to the rhythmic foundation of the group’s defining works—while adding in a few subtle vocal embellishments—is the type of cut that continues to set Tuxedo apart from many of its contemporaries.

A majority of the selections on Tuxedo III clock in at just under or over three minutes. While this results in abrupt endings in a few cases, it also keeps the flow moving along nicely—as most of the tracks segue nicely into one another. Accordingly, listeners who’ve been with Tuxedo from the start, as well as newcomers, are likely to find themselves intrigued with the team’s cultivated sowing of solid, yet nonabrasive, grooves and unassuming melodical stance.

Thom Yorke Anima

$14.99

addcart

 

ANIMA is the product of what Yorke has described as an extended period of anxiety, and it sounds like it, full of wraithlike frequencies and fibrillating pulses. That’s not a huge surprise: Yorke’s solo material has always sounded anxious, sometimes to its detriment. Where The Eraser, his solo debut, largely succeeded in channeling the decade’s post-millennium tension into compellingly moody electronic abstractions, 2014’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes too often felt claustrophobic, morose, enervated. In contrast, ANIMA’s tone throughout is meaty, full-blooded, often a little menacing. Yorke’s melancholy has grown teeth.

There are a few outright topical songs—“The Axe” will resonate with anyone who suspects technological progress is moving in the wrong direction—but for the most part, Yorke’s lyrics remain imagistic, non-specific, as intractable as eye floaters. Fragmentary lines play out like pages ripped from a journal on the nightstand. Sometimes he seems to be muttering to himself; elsewhere his voice is chopped into a jumble of words dangled teasingly near the outer limits of meaning. “Twist” ends with an incantation that might be straight from a horror film: “A boy on a bike who is running away/An empty car in the woods, the motor left running.” We’re whipped back into the hypnopompic logic of Yorke’s tangled thoughts.

Hamell on Trial Choochtown (20th Anniversary)

On Sale: $11.99

addcart

 

Choochtown tells stories about Nancy the pathetic maneater, Bobby the psycho drughead (with some kind of heart-of-gold sense of compassion as long as he’s not coming down), Chooch the guy who really wants to be a mafia big-hitter or something, and a cast of many others weak, strong, sickening and inspiring. And my favorite, a sweet little love song that sings, “I’m gonna watch you sleep a while…” wondering what she dreams about and thinking about all the things that would make their life easier (including a disturbing reference to “find(ing) your dad and chop(ping) him with a hatchet… cool, cool, cool.”) As brutal as that sounds, it makes the song even more endearing.

Anyone who cares about stories in music should own this album. Only by being chafingly honest is it possible to achieve the kind of communication in a song that Hamell does. He’s also a rock & roll shot in the arm for those of us who are tired of hardcore blandity.
