New Releases on CD for September 13th (09/13)

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!

Blink-182 – Nine

$12.99

addcart

2016’s ‘California’ proved that there was a future for Blink-182 after the soap opera departure of founding member Tom Delonge and the addition of Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba.

Excitable, eager to please and with a sugary smile, its 16 tracks represented an attempt to offer all things to all people. From the classic pop-punk escape of ‘Kings Of The Weekend’ and the moody ‘No Future’ to the juvenile humour of ‘Built This Pool’, it was a scrapbook reminder of the band’s best bits.

With ‘Nine’, there’s no room for nostalgia. It sees Blink back to the future and standing knee-deep in 2019. When, after the opening crash of ‘The First Time’, they admit that “there ain’t nothing like the first time,” the band set off to break new ground. Bouncing between an effervescent pop chorus and a much more snarling verse, it gives the classic Blink ingredients a big old shake-up. The fizz can be felt throughout.

Fitz and the Tantrums – All the Feels

$12.99

addcart

 

Though there will be a range of feels on Fitz and The Tantrums’ new album, the four songs the band have unveiled hint that the 17-song project will take a positive approach to the ups and downs of life. “All the Feels” in particular is the most raw of the songs they’ve released so far, with a pulsating melody to match the vulnerable — yet uplifting — lyrics like “We dive right into the deep end/ You win, you lose/ You get back up and try again.”

Fitz and The Tantrums also released the music video for “All The Feels,” which sees Fitz gain a brighter outlook on life after receiving (non-graphic) open-heart surgery.

Brittany Howard – Jaime

$12.99

addcart

Any discussion of Ms. Howard’s music has to start with her voice, an instrument of rare power and authority. It’s impossible to hear it without thinking of earlier vocalists: When singing in her lower register, she channels the heavy seriousness of Nina Simone, and when she sings high, she touches on the angelic lightness of Curtis Mayfield. These are lofty comparisons, but Ms. Howard has earned them.

The record’s strongest moments find Ms. Howard confronting darkness. “Run to Me” sounds like a mid-1980s Prince bootleg, with a bleak de-tuned synthesizer and thudding drum machine beat, while Ms. Howard’s vocal aches with torment. And on “Goat Head,” filled with searing details from her childhood, she describes the anguish of being stuck between worlds, rejected by both black and white neighbors (“My mama was brave to take me outside,” she sings, following a couple of lines later with “When I first got made / Guess I made these folks mad”).

That song comes from a fragment of memory, where Ms. Howard saw a man slash her father’s tires and stick the severed goat head of the title in the back seat of his car. This is the sort of image that terrifies a child who can’t understand what it means and she brings the grim details to life, but the production is loose and funky enough to make the pain bearable. That’s “Jaime” in a nutshell—horror and heartache transformed into deeply affecting songs that heal.

M83 – DSVII

$13.99

addcart

DSVII is another strong album from Gonzalez under the M83 moniker. The record, a follow-up to the now decade-old Digital Shades, Vol. I, follows the format of that earlier record by being heavier on the ambient and soundtrack form of his music rather than the synth-pop end. This is, judging based on the failures of Junk, a good thing; M83 works best when the dense infusion of dream pop, shoegaze, and goth rock alloy the interior of the synth pop, with flecks of psychedelia and prog and ambient to boot, so if those things can’t easily fuse then it’s better to not bother. Thankfully, Gonzalez’s deep ties to the soundtrack work of Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter has persisted his entire career, making those short enigmatic sound sculptures easy to replicate in his own work. The Digital Shades sub-series of records from M83 are a venture designed to capture that impulse, his own variant of Selected Ambient Works. Freed of doomed conceptual conceits, he’s able to craft sound more freely and without concern for catch or melodicism.

By ditching the kitsch, something that was meant to charm but instead made his songs gaudy, Gonzalez does more to reaffirm that value of these sonic palettes and compositional choices he draws from in ’80s synthesizer music more than a cheap joke ever could. It’s an open question on whether he will capitalize on this restored good faith and if so how (a turn to the abstract and cinematic could be just as satisfying a triumphant return to dream pop). But as it stands, DSVII affirms that the composer we all fell in love with in Anthony Gonzalez, with his melodrama and nostalgia-drenched sonic miniatures, remains intact.

Robbie Robertson – Sinematic

On Sale: $12.99

addcart

Robbie Robertson, the generally reclusive former primary songwriter and co-founder of The Band is on a roll in 2019. Robertson composed the music for longtime friend Martin Scorsese’s new film The Irishman and played a major role in the feature documentary about his old group (based on his 2016 autobiography), Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band. He’s also one of the non-playing forces behind a new Last Waltz Tour 2019, an extension of the Jazzfest show from earlier in the year. This solo album adds to the recent activity. It’s his first in eight years and only fifth of non-soundtrack material since going it alone in 1987.

The album’s title accurately describes the visual aspects this music conjures. And since Robertson hasn’t exactly been prolific with his releases, there’s plenty of quality music here to bask in. Headphones enhance the experience as they help immerse the listener in Robertson’s edgy, creative and literate world.

Hiss Golden Messenger – Terms of Surrender

$12.99

addcart

Terms is alive with bright flashes of texture and melody that flirt with excess but never cross the line. It’s a fitting backdrop for songs that cast a fearful eye toward certainty, optimism, and the danger of getting carried away when everything feels right.

This thematic undercurrent flows from the excellent opener “I Need a Teacher,” where Taylor struggles to overcome the tricky divide between fathers and sons. Sharp, forceful pangs of electric guitar occupy the bridge, erupting like the convictions that parent and child seek to overcome in a divided political climate.

At the end, amid the bestial blues skronk of “Whip,” Taylor sings with fiery determination about how he can’t stop chasing a “spirit on the water.” Then, on a title track backed by steady brushes of piano and guitar and intermittent plumes of drone, he sings, “And I saw the fires / 10,000 burning / All this water behind me, my love / No boat for the turning.”

Don’t get trapped by your convictions, he suggests, closing an album that heeds doubt instead of struggling against it. After convincing himself to love the dark, Taylor is reminding us to be wary of the light.
