Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Luciferian Towers

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy – we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat. 1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS – look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen – the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes! 2. BOSSES HANG – labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also – the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also – more of us than them! 3. FAM / FAMINE – how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine. 4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE – kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a shit because it knows it’s dying too. much love to all the other lost and wondering ones, xoxoxox god’s pee / montréal / 2017

Chris Hillman – Bidin’ My Time

$10.99

addcart

Chris Hillman, whose credits include co-founding Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the Byrds, as well as the Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas and Desert Rose Band, is truly one of the architects of American music. His newest solo work, Bidin’ My Time, produced by Tom Petty and executive-produced by Herb Pedersen, captures a rarity: an icon who has never sounded better, making music with old friends for the sheer love of it. Collaborators and admirers from Hillman’s storied career appear throughout the record: Tom Petty; Hillman’s Byrds bandmates David Crosby and Roger McGuinn; the Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell, and Steve Ferrone; Desert Rose Band’s John Jorgenson, Pedersen, and Jay Dee Maness; premier upright bassist Mark Fain; singer/guitarist Josh Jové; and fiddler Gabe Witcher. The album kicks off with a new recording of Pete Seeger’s and Welsh poet Idris Davies’ ‘The Bells of Rhymney,’ which the Byrds recorded for their debut. ‘Here She Comes Again’ was co-written by Hillman and McGuinn and, until now, had only been recorded on a live Byrds album in Australia. ‘She Don’t Care About Time’ was written by Byrds co-founder Gene Clark, and was the original B-side to ‘Turn! Turn! Turn!’ Covers of the Everly Brothers’ ‘Walk Right Back’ and Petty’s ‘Wildflowers’ round out this understated yet undeniable masterpiece. Folk, rock and roll, bluegrass and the unmistakable country-rock Hillman himself helped pioneer come together seamlessly on the triumph that is Bidin’ My Time.

The Killers – Wonderful Wonderful

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

The Killers have a formula that works for them. Every album has a handful of tracks that are the greatest thing you’ve ever heard, a perfect arrangements of chords and guitar licks and magic that sets off all the right vibrations in your brain, pillowed by a few tunes that eventually grow on you and the rest as little more than forgettable melodrama.

Wonderful Wonderful carries on this tradition, with “The Man” and “Tyson vs. Douglas” as the standouts, a pair of unshakable songs that join “Smile Like You Mean It,” “When You Were Young,” and “Miss Atomic Bomb” as moment-defining soundtracks. Admit it, you know where you were when these songs first landed on your ears, the soaring in your heart when the chorus hit.

Macklemore – Gemini

$11.99

addcart

GEMINI marks Macklemore’s first solo project in 12 years, following two releases with producer Ryan Lewis including the multiple-GRAMMY award winning album The Heist and 2016 release This Unruly Mess I’ve Made (featuring Platinum-certified single “Downtown”). Collectively Macklemore’s music videos have been viewed over 2 billion times and he is one of only two rappers to have a Diamond-certified single. The viral video for current hit single “Glorious” feat. Skylar Grey starring Macklemore’s 100 year old grandmother garnered over 30 million views in less than a month, while the video for “Marmalade” feat. Lil Yachty starring a Mini Macklemore and a Lil Lil Yachty was viewed over 11 million times in less than a week. “Glorious” continues to climb the charts, Top 40 radio, Billboard’s Hot 100, Spotify’s Global Top 50, racking up 2 million streams a day. In the past year, the Seattle rapper released two solo songs “Wednesday Morning” and “Drug Dealer,” performed on Ellen and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, was featured in an MTV special with President Obama about the opioid epidemic in America and was the first US citizen ever to participate in the Presidential Weekly Address.

Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers – The Long-Awaited Album

$14.99

addcart

Rather than a departure, Martin’s musical career is an extension of the storytelling impulse that drove his work as a comedian, an actor, a screenwriter, a playwright, an essayist, and a novelist.

The Long-Awaited Album, Steve Martin’s brand new project with the North Carolina Grammy-winning group the Steep Canyon Rangers, is full of stories that mix humor and melancholy, whimsy and realism, rich characters and evocative details. And lots of banjos. That instrument-so dexterously, even acrobatically picked and strummed-proves just as crucial to relating these tales as the lyrics themselves, each chord and riff revealing depths to Martin’s narrators and to his musical talent.

Mastodon – Cold Dark Place EP

$6.99

addcart

Following the March release of their epic full length, Emperor Of Sand, Mastodon have returned once more to deliver the haunting and moody Cold Dark Place just in time for autumn. The four song EP was recorded while the band was in the studio for Once More ‘Round The Sun and Emperor Of Sand and gives listeners yet another look into Mastodon’s vast collection of music.

“North Side Star” opens the EP with quite possibly some of the band’s strongest vocal harmonies alongside rich acoustic guitar. The theatrical opener quickly transports you back into Mastodon’s world and feels a bit dark, as the EP’s title suggests. Picking up the pace before the end, “North Side Star” is easily one of the most versatile songs on the EP, but that’s not to say that the three that follow aren’t well worth listening to either.

Van Morrison – Roll With The Punches

$12.99

addcart

Roll With The Punches – Van Morrison’s 37th studio album – sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin’ Hopkins among others) and recording a set of new self-written songs. It’s an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of rock’n’roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists. Roll With The Punches was produced by Van Morrison and recorded with an incredible team of studio collaborators including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

Stephen Stills & Judy Collins – Everybody Knows

$15.99

addcart

2017 release. Judy Collins and Stephen Stills together at last! Two folk legends of Laurel Canyon’s counter cultural music scene join forces on this gorgeous album of all new recordings! Features captivating versions of classic tunes by fellow folk icons Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen plus a few of their own compositions!

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun

$14.99

addcart

While past albums operated on the intimacy of stripped-down folk music (The Grime and the Glow, Unknown Rooms), or the throbbing pulse of supplemental electronics (Pain Is Beauty, Abyss), Chelsea Wolfes sixth official album Hiss Spun wrings its exquisiteness out of a palette of groaning bass, pounding drums, and crunching distortion. Recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge), the album was conceived as an emotional purge, a means of coming to terms with the tumult of the outside world by exploring the complexities of ones inner unrest. I’m at odds with myself, she explains. I got tired of trying to disappear. The record became very personal in that way. I wanted to open up more, but also create my own reality. Hiss Spun features contributions by Aaron Turner (Old Man Gloom, SUMAC) and Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure).
