New Releases on CD for February 15th (02/15)

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!

Tedeschi Trucks Band – Signs

 $15.99

addcart

After a gap of around three years following their last studio album, Let Me Get By, Tedeschi Trucks have returned to the studio recording world with a genuinely excellent offering, Signs. This is an album jammed to the rafters with clever, literate songwriting and the usual truly outstanding musicianship. Their old buddy, Warren Haynes, has teamed up on writing duties, but apart from that, this is a searing, self-penned, soaring bit of R&B with a soul echo, aided by the band’s driving horn section.

Derek Trucks produced the album, which was recorded at their downtown home studio in Florida. Now about to take to the road on a punishing global tour, the band will be out promoting the album big-time. On the basis of this wonderful eleven-track release, this could easily be one of those tours you just can’t afford to miss.

Trucks brings all his old, wily Allman Brothers’ slide guitar guile and class to the mix while Tedeschi’s voice is better than it may ever have been before. The result is a genuinely great album with every track pulling the listener along, caught in the glare of these musical headlights and highlights. Although it’s still a tad early, Signs could well already be an Album of the Year, a simply stunning release that never wanes or dims with repeated listening.

Make no mistake, Signs is a truly tremendous release from a band clearly working at the very highest levels of musical brilliance.

Ryan Bingham – American Love Song

 $7.99

addcart

Ryan Bingham has been pondering the meaning of America lately — the optimism in the midst of struggle, the triumphs amid the losses. Men and women looking for a fresh start. Families like his, who pinned their hopes on the next town or job, always chasing that ephemeral dream.

Nearly a decade and two albums removed, he’s pulled together a surprisingly upbeat, bluesy collection of songs that doesn’t shy away from big-ticket topics. American Love Song is his most personal and political album to date, a rolling blues-country workout awash in slide guitar, soaring gospel-roadhouse stomps and meditative folk fingerpicking that takes on his past with a cautious hope for the future.

“This record is all about … these different pieces and moving parts of this country,” Bingham tells Rolling Stone Country. “It’s about growing up in all these different parts of America and experiencing all these different cultures … a bit of a love song and love story about getting through it all.”

India.Arie Worthy

 $13.99

addcart

Worthy serves as a follow-up to SongVersation: Medicine – EP, which dropped in 2017 and earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Age Album. India’s next offering seems to be in line with the sentiments she pushed forth in this previous work as she focused on self-love and discovery.

“I think that self-care on a deeper level is, first of all, knowing who yourself is and then caring for that self,” she explained ahead of the 2018 Grammy Awards. “Because a lot of people, I’m being general, a lot of us in our culture we don’t really have a culture where you are impressed upon that your soul is a part of yourself that you are not always connected to. And so people move out into their lives from their mind.

“For me, self-care is paying attention to all those parts of yourself. It’s like deciding you’re going to put on your makeup but not brush your teeth that day. It doesn’t make sense. There’s a part of you that’s stinky. You look good, but you smell weird. So for me, I feel like a lot of us on a spiritual level are not taking care of [ourselves], but I also think that there’s nowhere in our culture where we’re taught you need to take care of all those aspects of yourself every day.”

Motet  Death or Devotion

 $14.99

addcart

The Motet has been dropping their brand of funky jams since the turn of the millennium and Death Or Devotion marks the group’s ninth studio album and the first with some new members. The outfit has long made their bones on live stages around the country and for any band whose bread and butter is in-the-moment workouts, studio records rarely live up to the hype.

Death Or Devotion almost clears that hurdle as the tracks glisten with a bright studio sheen, sounding straight out of the late seventies disco/funk/soul heyday. Recorded in their home state of Colorado, the band (Dave Watts – drums, bandleader Ryan Jalbert – guitar Joey Porter – keys Garrett Sayers – bass Drew Sayers – tenor sax Lyle Divinsky – vocalist Parris Fleming – trumpet) have honed their craft and delivered an impeccable sounding record.

Ladytron Ladytron

 $14.99

addcart

Blighted by the misguided view that they were progenitors of the ‘electroclash’ movement, Ladytron may have, for many, fallen through the same cracks as Dot Allison, Fischerspooner, and Peaches when the novel tawdriness of the movement started to wear thin. In fact, Ladytron were, and still are, one of the savviest pop outfits in the United Kingdom. They’ve endured for almost 20 years, unlike many synth-pop bands. Intelligent electronic music that retains an organic warmth in spite of the somewhat austere musical palette. Warmth largely due to the spectral harmonies of Helen Marnie and Mira Aroya, depersonalised fem-bots with voices of deep red velvet, particularly Helen Marnie.

Self-titled Ladytron is their first for eight years since Gravity the Seducer. I’m happy to report that they’ve matched and possibly surpassed previous efforts, at least since Witching Hour. Singles “The Island” and “The Animals” are bewitching and instantly accessible, but it’s the darker tracks like ‘Run’ that agitate a different, almost reverential wonder. Sparing, minimalist electro with an ominous backfill of dark synth chords, ghostly harmonies and the confident, calculated feminism of Helen Marnie’s vocal. ‘Run’ is evidence that Ladytron are no throwaway pop tarts, and have evolved their art-school pretension into something infinitely palatable. Although there’s no overt humour in Ladytron’s music, it would be churlish to deny the satirical candour of much of their music, like that other mistress of irony, Miss Kitten, a fellow electroclash refugee.

As always, Ladytron never deviate too far from the dance floor, and techno-charged “You’ve Changed” reminds us that they have one eye on the mixing desk.
