New Releases on CD for Friday July 21st (07/21)

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!

Nicole Atkins – Goodnight Rhonda Lee

$9.99

addcart

When musicians take inward turns and begin penning lyrics that scrutinize the lives they’re living, they’ll often underscore the maturation and sophistication of their perspectives by striking a pensive tone. That way we’ll hear how serious they are about doing away with facades. But that’s not the only method of making artistic use of personal catharsis.

The Jersey-bred, Nashville-based theatrical pop singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins devotes much of her fourth album to emotional excavation without ever assuming the subdued posture people might expect from a work of disclosure. In the press materials accompanying Goodnight Rhonda Lee, she wastes no time establishing that the 11-song set depicts high-stakes personal struggles. Only Atkins doesn’t treat getting sober and navigating major life transitions, like getting married and moving 900 miles away, as a somber affair.

Lana Del Rey – Lust For Life

$Price to come

addcart

Time is weighing on Lana Del Rey on her fourth major-label studio album, “Lust for Life.” At 32, she’s thinking not only about the troubled romances that fill most of her songs, but also about a next generation: flower-crowned children she sees around her at the Coachella festival, young lovers she notices on the street. In the album’s opening song, “Love,” she looks at, “You kids with your vintage music coming through satellites,” and observes, “You’re part of the past, but now you’re the future.”

That entanglement of old and new has been Ms. Del Rey’s gift and her strategy. Some pop careers unfold as a progression, an implicit narrative of an artist discovering new ideas and choosing different challenges. Ms. Del Rey’s catalog has been more like an Alexander Calder mobile: a fixed set of elements in a shifting balance, realigned with each viewing. “Lust for Life” is her most expansive album; it has 16 songs, stretching nearly 72 minutes. It also, in rare moments, hints at a wink behind Ms. Del Rey’s somber lullabies.

Foster The People – Sacred Hearts Club

$12.99

addcart

Sacred Hearts Club, is the new album from Foster The People. The album is available on CD July 21st, followed by the vinyl LP on August 11th.

Goldfinger has become a household name in the punk/ska community since their mid 90s inception. With 6 full-length albums under their belt, they have charted in the Billboard Top 200, their self-titled debut album went gold, and have been featured in several films and video games. Nine years after their last release, 2008’s Hello Destiny…, fans will be thrilled that Goldfinger are back with The Knife and will be eager to scoop this record on release day. The Knife includes 13 catchy, energetic tracks that showcase the evolution of Goldfinger. With a list of highly notable special guests, including Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, Twenty One Pilots’ Josh Dun, Mighty Mighty Boss Tones’ Nate Albert and ONE OK ROCK’s Takahiro Moriuchi among many others, this album is sure to attract existing fans, as well as new listeners.

In This Moment – Ritual

$13.99

addcart

In This Moment are currently traveling the Midwest with the second leg of their Half God Half Devil headlining tour, bringing sensational theatrics to the starving Metal masses. However, on Friday, July 21, 2017 they set to inspire a brand-new Ritual for the entire world, thanks to Atlantic in conjunction with Roadrunner Records.

A band that should require little introduction, In This Moment have been taking names since 2005. Their 2007 debut disc, Beautiful Tragedy, set the wheels in motion for a lengthy career that, to date, has spawned some five studio albums. Now with their sixth full-length effort just days away from release, In This Moment – Vocalist Maria Brink, Guitarists Chris Howorth and Randy Weitzel, Bassist Travis Johnson, and new Drummer Kent Diimmel – are poised to take the next big step in their evolution. Produced by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch), the new material weaves a unique spell that combines bluesy grit alongside bewitching tales of spirituality to create something that is bigger than any black widow’s web.

Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley will be releasing Stony Hill from Republic Records. The album features new singles ‘Medication,’ ‘R.O.A.R’ & ‘Speak Life.’ Marley’s previous album GRAMMY-Award winning Welcome To Jamrock is certified RIAA Gold, and won Best Reggae Album and Best Urban/Alternative Performance at the 2006 GRAMMYS.

Stanton Moore – With You In Mind: The Songs Of Allen Toussaint

$14.99

addcart

With You In Mind: The Songs Of Allen Toussaint, a new release from Galactic-drummer Stanton Moore with David Torkanowsky (keyboards) and James Singleton (bass) features an all-star cast: Cyril Neville, Jolynda Kiki Chapman, Nicholas Payton, Donald Harrison, Trombone Shorty, Maceo Parker, and Wendell Pierce. The musicians on With You in Mind: The Songs of Allen Toussaint are present-generation masters of the unique musical style of the world-historic city of New Orleans. These singers and players felt the mission of the album, and delivered inspired, focused performances. Producers Torkanowsky and Moore sculpted it all into a great album that grows with every subsequent listen.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood – Barefoot In The Head

$15.99

addcart

“They say the only people who know true freedom are musicians and gangsters,” Chris Robinson says with a laugh. “And Bob Dylan said to live outside the law you must be honest. We’re living in these anxiety-filled times, in an era of ‘no truth,’ but what our music represents is this truly honest way of communicating with people, and that’s a really freeing thing.”

If their stellar new album, Barefoot In The Head, is any indication, freedom suits the Chris Robinson Brotherhood well. The band is in the midst of one of their most prolific periods to date, with a slew of studio and live records coming out amidst a rigorous tour schedule that only seems to fuel their fire even further. Barefoot In The Head finds the band pushing boundaries and breaking new ground with more joy and wonder than ever before. The album showcases the continued growth of Robinson’s songwriting partnership with his bandmates (guitarist Neal Casal, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, and bassist Jeff Hill), while reveling in the kind of playful adventurousness that can only come from five artists tuned in to the same sonic wavelength.

Avey Tare – Eucalyptus

$13.99

addcart

Eucalyptus is the new studio album written and produced by Animal Collective’s Avey Tare. Conceived on Hawaiian mornings, written on a sunlit bedroom afternoon in Los Angeles, practiced in the dark early hours of the California twilight, recommended listening for dawn or dusk. Recorded by Animal Collective’s Deakin (Josh Dibb), featuring chamber orchestration arranged by Eyvind Kang, musicians Angel Deradoorian and Jessika Kenney, Eucalyptus is an immersive album length electroacoustic movement through leaves, rocks and dust.

Tyler The Creator – Flower Boy

$14.99

addcart

FLOWER BOY, is the new and long awaited album from Tyler, The Creator. The album follows up 2015’s Cherry Bomb.

The first track and self-directed video to be released from FLOWER BOY was “Who Dat Boy” featuring A$AP Rocky, along with a second track “911/Mr. Lonely,” which feature Steve Lacy and Frank Ocean, respectively.

FLOWER BOY is a 14-song album, and the physical version of the CD features two unique covers, the first one designed by Tyler himself and the other by artist Eric White. It is only fitting that Tyler would commission White, whose paintings have been described by Leah Ollman of The Los Angeles Times as being “nostalgic and at the same time also vaguely futuristic, even dystopian,” to visually articulate the world of FLOWER BOY.

Violent Femmes – 2 Mics & The Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

2 Mics & The Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged In America sees Violent Femmes reinventing their own extraordinary canon with all-new live performances, including rearranged classics, songs played live for the first time, spontaneous requests and random improvisations. Featuring The Horns of Dilemma, Violent Femmes’ ever-evolving cabal of multi-instrumentalist backing musicians, the album was recorded last year as the band visited supportive public radio stations and music media outlets across North America in support of their acclaimed ninth studio album, We Can Do Anything.
