New Releases on CD for March 13th (3/13)

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

Circles Around the Sun – Circles Around the Sun

$15.99

addcart

This third CATS album is wholly in keeping with the growing confidence of the band (in contrast to the somewhat laissez-faire sophomore outing, appropriately titled Let It Wander) as well as the creative progression of its forebears. In 1978, music lovers in general and Grateful Dead-heads, in particular, were more than a little flummoxed by the disco-overtones of the title track on the Shakedown Street. But that inclusion made no less sense during that period than the expansion of style for Circles Around The Sun in this era of groove-oriented synth-pop and its many derivatives.

Founder and titular leader Neal Casal is prominent in the eye-opening layout of the poster enclosed with this LP and, notwithstanding how ego-less and deferential he plays on something like “Leaving (Rogue Lemon),  that’s as it should be. His wish for the surviving band members to carry on in the wake of his passing is a righteous one, all the more so as, prior to that tragedy and including this endeavor, Circles Around The Sun had established a foundation for itself too firm to leave behind. As suggested by this very record—and the group’s recent tour—the stability of that ground-work also left room for exploration that, in the long run, should continually maintain the novelty of its studio endeavors while rendering the group’s live shows comparably fresh.

Ella Fitzgerald Complete Piano Duets

$21.99

addcart

Ella Fitzgerald was masterful in any musical format, but there was something especially luminous about her singing alone with a piano. This was clear when pianist Ellis Larkins was first asked to work with her for her 1950 album, Ella Sings Gershwin. “Larkins said he strongly believed that piano accompaniment alone would best serve the singer’s extraordinary talents,” NPR wrote in 2008. “She just loved singing with Ellis,” producer Milt Gabler said in 1990. The result was a delicacy of 1950s vocal jazz, revealing that Fitzgerald—a three-octave dynamo—was just as brilliant without any bells and whistles.

Sometimes, as on Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Cole Porter Song Book and Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Duke Ellington Song Book, her sparer recordings were sandwiched between big band and orchestral work. Now, for the first time ever, all of Fitzgerald’s exquisite piano duets have been assembled on one program. Whether you’re a fan of vocal jazz, solo piano or American popular song in general, The Complete Piano Duets is a must-have document of a masterful interpreter—raw, intimate, vulnerable, and oftentimes at her very best.

Deap Lips Deap Lips

$13.99

addcart

This is an album that, within two minutes of meeting you, grabs you by the lapels, sticks its tongue down your throat and drags you back to their place. Intense? Sure. But effective, if you’re into that sort of thing. Against our expectations, it turns out we are that way inclined. All it took was the combination of Los Angeles duo Deap Vally & quirky indie hall-of-famers Flaming Lips. Together, they form Deap Lips and, as you might expect, the sound is truly unique. There is a Flaming Lips flavour to it, the slightly more left-field sound that you’ve come to expect from them is present on tracks like the catchily titled ‘One Thousand Sisters With Aluminium Foil Calculators’ (by the way, if that isn’t a Flaming Lips song title, we don’t know what is) and ‘Love is a Mind Control’. But there is also a punchier, punkish drive to other songs like the opening ‘Home Through Hell’ and latest single ‘Motherfuckers Got To Go’. As these two sounds blend with each other, the result is a cocktail that is constantly engaging and intriguing.

If nothing else, this record will bring more attention to Deap Lips’ back-catalogue (which includes the hilariously titled 2016 LP, Femejism), which can only be a good thing for them. As for the Flaming Lips, this record shows that their distinctive sound is adaptable, adoptable and strong enough to avoid dilution through collaboration. Hopefully, both parties will agree that this experiment has been a success and more records will come because we are now fully, and immediately, invested in this relationship.

Grouplove Healer

$12.99

addcart

Grouplove kicked off HEALER with the release of their lead single, “Deleter.” After its premiere on Sirius XM, the track and companion video were met with widespread critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Billboard hailed the “much-anticipated return” as “political and powerful” while Consequence of Sound stated, “It’s almost impossible to hear the song without imagining the band dancing around the recording studio. For the first single from a new album, it certainly bodes well for the musical direction Grouplove are going in.”

Recorded at El Paso, TX’s famed Sonic Ranch with producer Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Weezer) and at Larrabee Studios in Los Angles with Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde), Healer marks the first new album from Grouplove since 2016’s acclaimed third LP, BIG MESS. Grouplove has spent much of its existence on tour, including worldwide headline tours, countless festival appearances, and support runs alongside such like-minded artists as Imagine Dragons, Young the Giant, Foster the People, and Florence and the Machine.

Niall Horan – Heartbreak Weather

$14.99

addcart

It has been three years since Niall Horan delivered his impressive debut solo disc, Flicker, and now he’s ready to wow fans yet again with its follow-up, Heartbreak Weather.  Again opting to work with a cavalcade of producers—including Julian Benetta (One Direction, Louis Tomlinson), Greg Kurstin (Sia, Halsey), and Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, Sia)—the talented singer-songwriter provides his fans with 14 new tracks that show greater growth and sonic evolution. From danceable, summery vibes to heartfelt intimacy, Horan spans genres and influences as he delivers his cohesive storybook of love and loss.

There are multiple layers to Horan’s songs, layers that often utilize the effects and electronics of today but are kept subtle enough to never detract from the songwriter’s talents. In this, Horan has found his sound on Heartbreak Weather, embraced his eclectic influences, and delivered a powerful Pop record. Full of love and loss, loneliness and joy, there’s a feel-good, light and airy vibe to the album…

While he continues to shine brightest in his minimalist moments, Heartbreak Weather provides an elevated dose of Pop that Cryptic Rock is willing to embrace. For this, we give the record 5 of 5 stars.
