New Releases on CD for April 13th (4/13)

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

The Flaming Lips – Scratching the Door: The First Recordings of the Flaming Lips

$13.99

addcart

Scratching the Door highlights tracks recorded by The Flaming Lips’ original line-up, which featured Wayne Coyne’s brother Mark on vocals. The album includes the band’s first and second cassette demos, in addition to The Flaming Lips first self-released EP, and marks the first time all of these recordings have been collected together on a single release. Among the other featured tracks are covers of The Who’s “Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere,” Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” and the theme song from the 1960’s Batman television series, which previously appeared on Rykodisc’s 2002 compilation, Finally The Punk Rockers Are Taking Acid.

Lord Huron – Vide Noir

$13.99

addcart

Somewhere between Fleet Foxes and The Black Keys lies a bourbon-soaked niche occupied by Lord Huron. This LA four-piece deals in worn, sepia-tinged folk-rock marked more by its earnestness than anything else – the kind of music that lends itself well to television soundtracks – and indeed it’s here that the band have had their most notable moment on the world stage. Last year, their sweeping 2015 song ‘The Night We Met’ formed a crucial part of the soundtrack to the controversial Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why, and thanks to that spotlight, the song was certified Platinum in January.

In the wake of that unexpected mainstream success, the band have stepped up a level for their third album ‘Vide Noir’, signing to a major label (Universal’s Republic Records) and working with big names such as Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT) and Sonny DiPerri (Warpaint, Animal Collective). The concept is bigger, too. The album title is French for ‘black void’ and its contents find Schneider’s narrator working his way through a trippy and inextricable mix of heartbreak and depression; the ambitious story of the album involves a runaway lover, a narrator questioning reality and an ominous emerald star that promises epiphany. Spoiler: it doesn’t end well.

Melvins – Pinkus Abortion Technician 

$13.99

addcart

Featuring both ongoing Melvins’ bass player Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Butthole Surfers’, and occasional Melvins’, bottom ender Jeff Pinkus on bass. “Stop Moving To Florida” is a medley of the James Gang’s “Stop” and Butthole Surfers’ “Moving To Florida,” the band also covers the Beatles’ “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and Butthole Surfers’ “Graveyard” on the eight-song release.

Old Crow Medicine Show – Volunteer

$10.99

addcart

After covering an iconic album by Bob Dylan in its entirety, that being the famously influential Blonde On Blonde no less, how is a band best advised as far as making its next move? That was the inevitable question Old Crow Medicine Show was forced to consider following the accolades that tribute received. After all, one of the main objectives at that juncture had to be to reestablish their own identity, free of anyone else’s shadow, including the biggest of all, that of Mr. Dylan. How then to make an album that might earn equal acclaim, and reaffirm their identity and ingenuity all at the same time?

While some outfits might opt to broaden their base and alter their approach, Old Crow Medicine took the opposite option, choosing instead to go back to basics. Consequently, Volunteer is an album that projects its rustic references, all etched with nostalgia and songs that offer reasons for return to the pleasures of front porch existence. “Child of the Mississippi,” “Dixie Avenue” and “A World Away” celebrate the joys of home and the hearth, and the sheer celebration that comes with knowing there’s a place where one belongs.

Pennywise – Never Gonna Die

$12.99

addcart

Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a rich punk rock history, Pennywise began in 1988. The band would go on to amass an international following through relentless touring and a melodic high energy sound merging melodic surf punk, blistering hardcore and the classic punk of their youth. The group has solidified their place in punk history and are ready to continue their legacy with their long awaited new album, Never Gonna Die. A return to form for the band, Never Gonna Die contains 14 solid tracks that a punk fan can run in circles to.

A Perfect Circle – Eating the Elephant

$13.99

addcart

It’s been 14 years since A Perfect Circle released their last record, and it finds Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel seamlessly blending the past with the present. While their early work was heavily driven by orchestral rock, their latest effort Eat The Elephant shows the band balancing darkness with a more subdued sound.

Their fourth full-length finds the band exploring the heaviness of politics, culture and mortality: an evolved version of 2004’s anti-war cover LP Emotive. From the philosophical “TalkTalk” to the stirring “Hourglass,” A Perfect Circle show that they remain dynamic even when toned down.
