New Releases on CD for January 19th (01/19)

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!

Tommy Emmanuel – Accomplice One

$12.99

addcart

Accomplice One is a testament to Tommy Emmanuel’s musical diversity, the range of expression that stretches from authentic country-blues to face-melting rock shredding, by way of tender and devastating pure song playing. The songs are a mix of new takes on indelible classics and brand new originals from Tommy and his collaborators. The artists who stepped forward to join Tommy in the studio are an impressive list of some of today’s most respected performers, from across the musical spectrum – a lineup including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss and many more.

Fall Out Boy – Mania

On Sale: $13.99

addcart

Rockers are having a tough time on pop radio these days. Unless they’re willing to go the full Maroon 5 and chase the latest trends the way the pop singers do, bands can’t really get radio to stay interested in them.

Fall Out Boy has been one of the few bands, along with Imagine Dragons, that still commands attention in both the pop and rock worlds. And their adventurous new album “Mania” (Island / DCD2) shows why.

Singer-guitarist Patrick Stump makes the most of his distinctive voice, which manages to always sound soulful whether he’s playing tough (“The Last of the Real Ones”) or vulnerable (“Bishops Knife Trick”). He also manages it in an array of ever-changing musical settings.

First Aid Kit – Ruins

On Sale: $11.99

addcart

Ruins is the new and eagerly awaited album from Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit. This new album finds First Aid Kit as you’ve never heard them before: wounded and biting back hard. While Ruins follows the traditions of the classic folk rock sound that First Aid Kit revived via their breakthrough album Stay Gold (2014) and previous releases The Big Black And The Blue (2010) and The Lion’s Roar (2012), the difference is that this time they’ve lived, and the results are intense.

Tracks such as “Rebel Heart” the album’s opener documents a love doomed from the start. “It’s A Shame” the lead single is a plea to live in the moment because everyone disposes of each other eventually. On “Postcard” and To Live A Life,” you feel the breath-stealing weight of despair when a shattered love leaves you bereft of hope. “Fireworks” introverts the blame with self-loathing.

In many ways, First Aid Kit’s largest asset is their biggest problem. Their voices are so damn pretty. The [previous] records were always so perfect,” says Johanna Söderberg. On Ruins, the duo didn’t want it to feel perfect. They wanted it to feel rough and wrenching. Johanna comments further, “Given the material, the lyrics had to be the focus. These sentiments didn’t need to be dressed up. They needed to be naked.”

Ruins was made with one target in mind: make it sound more real a result the Söderberg sisters clearly achieved.

Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac (2CD)

$15.99

addcart

FLEETWOOD MAC : EXPANDED EDITION features a newly remastered version of the original album along with single mixes for “Over My Head,” “Rhiannon,” “Say You Love Me.” Also included is a second disc with an alternate version of the complete album comprised of unreleased outtakes for each album track, plus several unreleased live performances from 1976.

Ghost – Ceremony & Devotion

$19.99

addcart

The album was recorded during the band’s critically exalted Popestar tour during the summer of 2017 and documents Ghost’s unforgettable live show in pursuit of becoming the world’s next great arena band. Ceremony and Devotion was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety and features fan favorites spanning the band’s entire catalogue from Opus Eponymous (2010) to Infestissumam (2013) to Meliora (2015) to the Popestar EP (2016). Ghost’s most recent studio album, Meliora, and its accompanying EP Popestar, elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of the greatest rock bands on earth and resulted in a Grammy Award for ‘Best Metal Performance’. Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with “Square Hammer”. Along the way Ghost have racked up both widespread critical acclaim and adoration from a legion of fans across the globe in a genre stagnated by Nü metal for nearly two decades.

Glen Hansard – Between Two Shores

$12.99

addcart

With Between Two Shores, Glen Hansard has crafted a heartfelt rock n’ roll romance. That’s not much of a surprise for an artist who’s always preferred grand, emotional gestures—from his all-inclusive anthems with his band, the Frames, to the hushed intimacy of the songs from writer-director John Carney’s Once, in which he starred. What’s surprising is the album’s quiet confidence and casual assurance. Just three albums into his solo career, Hansard sounds like an old pro; more than any music he’s ever made, the songs on Between Two Shores are possessed of warmth and familiarity.

Earnestness is Hansard’s default state, and he eschews poetic abstractions in favor of directness here—speaking plainly and wearing his heart on his sleeve. Rather than collapsing into generalities, his songs convey an assertive universalism; he doesn’t tell stories as much as he conjures feelings, and this album maintains a conversational tone that adds to its intimacy.

The prevailing mood on Between Two Shores is melancholic, but it’s one that’s buoyed by hopeful determination. Across songs about tumultuous relationships, Hansard alternates between asking his lover to stay and recognizing that perhaps their time together is over. On “Why Woman,” a swaying soul ballad in the Van Morrison vein, he wonders why his partner isn’t more willing to give things a second chance. On “Movin’ On,” though, the narrator is resolute in packing his bags and heading out, and the song’s arrangement mirrors the singer’s inner turmoil: The verses are spare and haunted, but when the chorus hits, Hansard furiously strums his acoustic guitar, breaking into a soulful howl while surrounded by a wailing organ.

The Shins – The Worms Heart

$12.99

addcart

The Worms Heart is a complete re-work of The Shins critically acclaimed March, 2017 album ‘Heartworms‘. The album offers new reworked versions of the ‘Heartworms‘ album original tracks, and the sequence is flipped as well. The album is available on CD, and VINYL LP.

When James Mercer wrote, produced, and recorded the Heartworms album, he had this desire for an alternate version, an opposite version. The album’s slow songs would be flipped and re-recorded as fast songs, and vice versa. The reasoning was to showcase the versatility and strength of his songwriting, and the result is The Worm’s Heart. This ‘flipped’ collection is produced by Yuuki Matthews, Jon Sortland, & James Mercer; and is a must for any fan of The Shins.

They Might Be Giants – I Like Fun

$13.99

addcart

They Might Be Giants is back! The Brooklyn originals can’t stop and won’t stop, with 2018 already destined to be one of their most magnificent and productive years to date. Thirty-five years deep into their epic career, this January will see the release of their brand-new studio album I Like Fun. The fifteen-track album was produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, David Byrne, Mary J. Blige, The National, Donald Fagen) and recorded at Reservoir Studios (the former Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum album Flood). The lead track;I Left My Body; is a prime slice of the power They Might Be Giants commands. Hyper-melodic, fresh, and ever rocking, They Might Be Giants formidable live lineup enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the best shows around, and this album is a real showcase for that musical energy. I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling, singular point of view TMBG always delivers.

Coinciding with the album’s release is the first leg of the band’s extensive world tour that kicks off with a fifty-city run across the US. And 2018 will also see the resurrection of TMBG’s legendary Dial-A-Song service on streaming sites everywhere, featuring new music all year long!

Tune-Yards – I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life

$14.99

addcart

Tune-Yards’ magnum opus will arrive on January 19 in the form of new album I can feel you creep into my private life. Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards’ most immediate and upbeat music yet- this is Tune-Yards’ music to dance to. On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards is officially a duo. Garbus is joined by longtime collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with mixer Mikaelin “Blue” BlueSpruce (Solange, Kendrick Lamar). Tune-Yards’ 2014 release Nikki Nack was one of the most well received albums of the year. New York Magazine called it “possibly the catchiest record of the year,” the New Yorker praised its “joyful energy” and “surprisingly sweet singing and catchy tunes,” and Entertainment Weekly said “life needs joyful noise like this.” Since the release of Nikki Nack, Tune-Yards has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as penning the standout track, “Action,” from Mavis Staples’ 2016 album.
