New Releases on CD for December 13th (12/13)

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!

Chicano Batman – Cycles of Existential Rhyme

$12.99

addcart

Chicano Batman’s Cycles of Existential Rhyme, to me, represents one of those rare moments when everything goes completely as planned. There is so much that can be said about this album, which, I will make no attempt to hide, is one of my all time favorites. The cover is a clear homage to the Door’s Waiting for the Sun, and the band’s influence is clear through whirling organs on the title track. Ironically, this was one of the Doors albums that did not prominently feature the instrument, but there are other clear influences. Dreamy, romantic, and ultra-poetic lyricism dominates Chicano Batman’s album.

The album has highs and lows, but in a way it functions like one great big jam, with each track flowing into the next with a sort of reserved logic.

It moves anywhere from the brassy funking fun of “El Frio II” to the majorly mellow, aptly titled, “Stoned Soul Picnic”. There are some tracks, like “She Lives On My Block” that I can listen to anytime, but there is no bad place to start on this album.

Bardo Martinez has a voice like a classic crooner, and it can rarely hide his infectious optimism. Eduardo Arenas’s bass lines are incredibly distinct, and they create a full sound for the recordings. Each spicy, bouncing track on this album is more infectious than the next.

Decemberists – Traveling On

$6.99

addcart

It’s been a busy year for the Decemberists, who stirred some synth-pop into their folk-rock sound with this spring’s I’ll Be Your Girl and revived their Traveler’s Rest festival for a second year in Missoula, Montana in August. They’re not done yet, either: the Oregon group is closing out 2018 with a new EP, Traveling On, made up of outtakes from the I’ll Be Your Girl sessions with producer John Congleton.

The five-song EP’s title track is available to hear now. With its sighing accordion and searching harmonies, “Traveling On” is a rewarding return to a more familiar Decemberists style. Lead singer Colin Meloy rhymes “boys in blazers” with “union labor,” mopes about having to “meet the new dauphin at the Louvre,” and generally seems to be imagining a weary indie-rock band’s tour schedule in fantastical, historically haywire terms. Also on the EP: a song called “Midlist Author,” which one can only hope is a somber mid-tempo retelling of the story from the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer.”

Bruce Springsteen – Springsteen on Broadway

On Sale: $17.99

addcart

With last year’s myth-shattering, deeply evocative memoir Born to Run, Springsteen introduced readers to the real, vulnerable, complex human being behind his larger-than-life persona. Springsteen on Broadway, at the 975-seat Walter Kerr theater, is in many ways a live version of the book, even if reports that he’d be “reading” from it aren’t quite right: Most of the extensive spoken-word segments are brand new or heavily altered from the book versions. It’s clear from the beginning that this is nothing like a typical latter-day Springsteen concert, where set lists can vary wildly from night to night and Bruce often has little to say between songs. There’s no room for his usual athleticism here – Springsteen just shuffles a few feet between a piano on stage left and a microphone at center stage. The intensity is, instead, emotional, as Springsteen digs hard into the bedrock of his life story, and ours: childhood, religion, work, death. The performance is hard to categorize. It’s not a concert; not a typical one-man-show; certainly not a Broadway musical. But it is one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory.

Some of Springsteen’s more impatient hardcore fans may grumble that he hasn’t released an album of new material in five years (2014’s “High Hopes” consisted mostly of songs written in the previous decade). Springsteen on Broadway is a fresh, powerful artistic achievement in its own right – a man who’s a couple of years away from his 70th birthday confronting his past and putting it all into a new and unique context. But it’s still hard not to hope that a great new album is next, and that there are still plenty of chapters left to write in this singular life story.
