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!

Lizzo – ‘Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)

$12.99

addcart

Cuz I Love You follows through on the legend she’s been steadily building over the past few years. She’s a punk rocker at heart, like her mentors Sleater-Kinney — many Lizzo fans first heard her as the opening act on the riot-grrrl legends’ 2015 reunion tour. If you watched Someone Great on Netflix this weekend (like most of us), you got blown away by the pivotal scene when Rolling Stone music critic Gina Rodriguez has a self-care moment listening to Lizzo.

She’s got a sly sense of music history, which is how she can reach so far on Cuz I Love You, mixing it up with producers Ricky Reed, Oak and X Ambassadors. The single “Juice” has the classic Eighties R&B glide of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. (Any basic can imitate Janet Jackson — but it takes nerve to nail the precise vibe of Cherrelle circa High Priority.) “Cry Baby” dips into Prince slow-love mode, though her attitude is more like if Apollonia took over the Morris Day role in Purple Rain.

Lizzo turned heads with the pithy question she once asked in “Truth Hurts”: “Why are men great until they gotta be great?” But it’s not a question she wastes much time on here. When she belts “Cuz I Love You,” it’s obvious her “you” is the star she sees in the mirror. As she testifies all over the album, it was difficult work for Lizzo to learn that she’s her own hero. But it just takes listening to Cuz I Love You to make her yours.

Stone Sour Hello You Bastards: Live in Reno

On Sale: $11.99

addcart

If you love Rock-n-Roll, then you already know all about the internationally acclaimed Stone Sour. Fronted by the incomparable Corey Taylor (famous for some band called Slipknot), the Iowa quintet delivered their eponymous debut in 2002, immediately receiving two Grammy nods and cementing their place in Rock history. Then came 2006’s Come What(Ever) May, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, followed by 2010’s Audio Secrecy and 2012’s  monumental House Of Gold & BonesParts 1 & 2.

Hydrograd, their sixth studio recording, arrived in 2017, and set the stage for an epic headlining tour that made a truly memorable stop at the Grand Sierra Theatre in Reno, Nevada, on October 5, 2018. Thankfully, the performance was recorded for posterity and that is what provides us with the 16-song Hello, You Bastards: Live In Reno. Promised to be 100% live with zero overdubs.

As far as live albums go, Hello, You Bastards: Live In Reno is an enjoyable experience. While they probably won’t feel as though they are in the middle of the pit, fans will still rejoice to have this raw, unedited concert recording in their collection.

Harry Styles – Fine Line

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

Harry Styles has chosen to use his superpowers for good and not evil. These powers were vested in him by the superstar status of One Direction, which with each passing month sets new records for longest hiatus ever, even as its members meander in multiple directions. The most satisfying of these detours has been Styles’ full immersion in an era that predates him by a few generations, the mellow gold of the 1970s, which, when he released his eponymous solo debut two and a half years ago, made for quite an interesting dichotomy between his fan base and his bank of influences.

Several of the songs have McCartney-esque interludes, like slightly druggier versions of album tracks he might have released in his fruitful ‘70s solo heyday. Is it coincidence, or conjuring, that ex-Wings guitarist Laurence Juber pops up on one song? Juber’s hit-songwriter daughter, Ilsey Juber, co-wrote a track on the album, so that’s probably the connection — but you get the feeling that Styles is the kind of guy who totally knows and digs that Juber was a band member on one of his favorite McCartney albums, “Back to the Egg.”

It’s an album about romantic ambivalence, really, which is a perfectly fine subject for a 25-year-old who’s still sowing some oats to settle in on. You don’t need to be ambivalent about “Fine Line,” though. If he’s not necessarily ready to play the hero in a relationship yet, he’s certainly coming off as one of the good guys in how he’s defying blockbuster expectations by following his muse back into the classic rock era and casually claiming it as his own. He’s still stuck on what’s apparently his real first true love: analog.

Tool Fear Inoculum (CD/DLC Deluxe)

$34.99

addcart

These days, 13 years between records may as well be 13 eons. In that time, Tool has been through the music business gauntlet of personal differences, creative differences and of course, legal issues. But the band hasn’t been idle. The purveyors of what’s sometimes been called thinking person’s heavy metal have toward pretty much every year between 2006 and 2016. Tool has also played bunches of festivals, and that roadwork is the secret ingredient of the tight and tightly scripted Fear Inoculum.

The new music has a strong prog rock undercurrent. Happily, Tool did not make a super-technical, look-how-many-notes-we-can-fit-on-the-head-of-a-pin record. Even when there’s chop-shop higher math going on – and many of the rhythms are organized in fitful seven-beat groups – the emphasis is on the dramatic arc, the way things unfold in performance. This record gets the whiplash intensity that the band brings live.

Across its 29-year run, Tool has released just five studio albums. We’ve had angry Tool, dark, sociopathic Tool, majestic Tool, abrasively loud Tool. Now comes reflective, wiser Tool. It’s not a total reinvention, but Tool fans who have waited so long for this day probably won’t care.

Satyricon – Rebel Extravaganza

$14.99

addcart

From the ten-minute meanderings of Tied In Bronze Chains and The Scorn Torrent (with some great female vocals on the latter) to shorter, almost catchy blasts like Filthgrinder and Havoc Vulture, this is Satyricon exploring their moral and aural depths. This was a crossroads in the band’s career, where they could have gone careening off into Dødheimsgard territory. That they ultimately went catchy is just one path in time; in another, Satyricon are the Avant-Garde masters of Norway. Without doubt, this fits perfectly alongside the band’s earlier albums in terms of atmosphere, whilst being just catchy enough to merit a place atop Volcano and Now, Diabolical as the father of that much-maligned sound.

Looking at Rebel Extravaganza on its own merits, however, there’s much to like. The majority of tracks are between six and ten minutes long, with just a few shorter interlude pieces, and these longer tracks all have a traditional Black Metal foundation with an oddly progressive focus, still relying more on hypnotic repetition than weird sound effects or catchy riffs, although obviously both are used. Aspects such as the Hammond-y backing keyboards in Havoc Vulture and the Industrial-esque percussion throughout dotted here and there make it a very interesting listen, although the backing Black Metal is wonderful, of course. Say what you like about them signing to Roadrunner, this band are more than skilled at what they do, and Rebel Extravaganza is a classic release in more ways than one.
