New Releases on CD for January 18th (01/18)

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!

Deerhunter – Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

On Sale: $13.99


addcart

On Deerhunter’s eighth album and first since 2015’s Fading Frontier, Bradford Cox turns his gaze towards the horizon, surveying a ravaged environment and vanishing landscapes. Recorded in Marfa, TX, with Cate Le Bon, Ben Etter, and longtime co-producer Ben H. Allen III, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? reflects the desert it was created in. Arid and expansive, the album shimmers with thoughtful meditations on destruction of both human life and nature itself, drawing inspiration from climate change, the 2016 murder of a British politician by a mentally ill man with ties to a Neo-Nazi organization, the 1917 Russian Revolution, and the final months of James Dean’s life.

Greensky Bluegrass – All for Money

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

Nobody starts a string band to make a quick buck. Then again nobody can accuse Greensky Bluegrass of taking any shortcuts. The Michigan-bred quintet, known for marathon live shows that have earned a continuously swelling Grateful Dead-like fanbase, have been gigging relentlessly for nearly two decades, using the best parts of bluegrass — hard-driving rhythms, speedy solos, ascendant harmonies — as a foundation for a broadly inclusive sound that features wide-open psychedelia and sturdy Americana songcraft.

“We don’t want to put ourselves in a box, even though bluegrass is in our name,” guitarist/singer-songwriter Dave Bruzza tells Rolling Stone. “That’s how we found each other — through our love of bluegrass — but our tastes are all over the board. We’re more of a rock band.”

That certainly comes across throughout All for Money, the group’s ambitious new album. Opener “Do It Alone” starts with hissing feedback and sustained, distorted chords before charging forward with a head-bobbing groove. The seven-minute title track moves from the fleet-fingered picking of Bill Monroe to the floating space of Pink Floyd. In the latter, Paul Hoffman, Greensky’s mandolinist and other main songwriter, looks at the motivations and grapples with the pitfalls of being in a steadfast independent band. With a rugged, reverb-laced voice he sings: “What if we’d done it all for money, and nobody ever even really cared?”

“The important thing about our band is the community that surrounds us. Our fans like to come for the experience, because they know it always changes,” says Bruzza. “We never shy away from experimenting with almost anything. Living in the moment is something we do really well.”

Malibu Ken – Malibu Ken (Aesop Rocky/ Tobacco)

 $13.99

addcart

Aesop Rock has always been funny, though listeners could be forgiven for not noticing. Anybody who raps this often about cats doesn’t lack for self-awareness. But between the claustrophobic production, the miserablist worldview, his imposing delivery, and the sheer density of his wordplay, his music scans as dead-serious even when it drips with pitch-black humor. He’s funny, sure, but he’s a lot of other things first.

If he just needed the right producer to highlight that wit, he’s found a choice one in Tobacco, of the Pittsburgh synth-psych outfit Black Moth Super Rainbow. Aesop Rock and that band toured together over a decade ago, and Aesop guested on the producer’s nutty “Dirt” in 2008. Now they’ve released a full-length together as Malibu Ken, a madcap project that unmoors Aesop from expectations of high-mindedness. Tobacco previously produced the bass-addled “Silicon Valley” theme song, and, like that jingle, his Malibu Ken tracks radiate demented whimsy. For all its erratic shifts and kinks, his miswired electro-funk is purely pleasurable, a rarity in Aesop’s catalog.

Neyla Pekarek – Rattlesnake

 $12.99

addcart

Pekarek has taken the tale of a woman named Katherine McHale Slaughterback, who reportedly killed 140 rattlesnakes in 1925 while defending her three-year-old son, and written an album’s worth of music around it. Nicknamed “Rattlesnake Kate,” she collected rattlesnake venom for research, was a trained nurse and taxidermist, and married and divorced six times. Pekarek penned this self-described “folk-opera” about Slaughterback’s life based on love letters she wrote to Colonel Charles D. Randolph who she never met. You following this?

Not surprisingly, the result is an audacious, somewhat cheeky album featuring Pekarek’s trilling, powerful voice and songs that shift from ’60s Grease-styled ditties to more histrionic moments, all seemingly made for the stage. It often has the feel of an original cast recording, although sung by one person (Brian Cronin takes the part of Buckskin Bill on a duet). You may expect a chorus to break into some of these performances, like something out of Oklahoma. It’s a lot to absorb — listening with the lyrics in front of you helps — and those expecting something similar to The Lumineers are advised to preview tracks before taking the plunge because this is nothing like that band’s style.

Toro y Moi – Outer Peace

 $13.99

addcart

Chaz Bundick is all about the level up. Since his debut album in 2010 under the moniker Toro y Moi, the talented producer’s music has shown up in diverse collaborations — everywhere from Nosaj Thing to Travis Scott tracks. It’s evolved accordingly: from mellow, lo-fi dreaminess to fuzzy, psychedelic guitar jaunts to dancier, funk-crunching material that finds solace in the idea of leaning into your own listlessness. Two years out from his last project, 2017’s Boo Boo, the chillwave crusader has transitioned into a full-fledged vocalist and groove operator who shares his sonic keys to finding Outer Peace.

Bundick says he drew influence from the accessible dance music of Daft Punk, the innovative synths of France’s Wally Badarou and recent trips to places like Mexico City and Northern California when creating the new project. Those fingerprints are all over this record.

The heartbeat bass of “Fading” numbs doubt with a bokeh effect. The pseudo-submerged steel drums in “Baby Drive It Down” help peel away layers of self-consciousness. The lucidity of ABRA’s vocals in “Miss Me” land delicately like droplets on a lilypad. (The birdsongs at the beginning of the track almost immediately transport you to flower beds in a rain forest.)

At roughly half an hour, the worlds inside Outer Peace provide worthy terrain in which to get lost. As for the album’s title? That comes from Bundick once again coming up with a challenge. “It references all the elements of what the music could sound like,” he says. “And usually the peace is within, so to have peace on the outside is the challenge. I kind of just wanted to call that out.”

Sharon Van Etten – Remind Me Tomorrow

 $11.99

addcart

In October, Sharon Van Etten released her first new song in almost five years. ‘Comeback Kid’ a thumping slice of electro-pop, coincided with the announcement that she didn’t want the single and her fifth album, ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, “to be pretty”. Mission accomplished, then. Because this album, in all its chaotic glory, is raw, heavy and almost certainly the most immediate piece of work she’s done thus far.

That mindset reflects the album’s scattered conception and completion. Given that it was written while she was pregnant with her first child, starring in Netflix’s hit show The OA and studying to become a mental health counsellor, it’s no surprise that Van Etten says this period in her life forced changes. This hectic schedule made her embrace new styles of songwriting, swap guitars for pianos and synths and hand over the self-recorded demos to a new producer, John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Future Islands).

‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, then, serves not so much as a nudge, but a forceful and playful shove to remind listeners just how special Van Etten’s talent is on both a lyrical and musical level. Don’t call it a comeback, but it may well be her most intoxicating and impressive work to date.
