After undergoing open heart surgery that saved his life, Crockett says he considered calming down for “just a minute.” Welcome to Hard Times was shaped by his heart issues and producer Mark Neill’s desire to make a dark, gothic, country record. “I think you can hear that deep, dark sadness in this record,” he says, “but I think it’s the kind of darkness that will uplift others.”

Cooking Vinyl

Laura Marling - Song For Our Daughter

Laura Marling - Song For Our DaughterLaura Marling - Song For Our DaughterLaura Marling - Song For Our Daughter - Chrysalis / Partisan
Laura Marling’s exquisite seventh album ‘Song For Our Daughter’ arrives almost without pre-amble or warning in the midst of uncharted global chaos, and yet instantly and tenderly offers a sense of purpose, clarity and calm. As a balm for the soul, this full-blooded new collection could be posited as Laura’s richest to date, but in truth it’s another incredibly fine record by a British artist who rarely strays from delivering incredibly fine records. Taking much of the production reins herself, alongside long-time collaborators Ethan Johns and Dom Monks, Laura has layered up lush string arrangements and a broad sense of scale to these songs without losing any of the intimacy or reverence we’ve come to anticipate and almost take for granted from her throughout the past decade.

Matador

A decade after debuting on Matador, Spoon's first album Telephono and follow-up EP Soft Effects have been brought back into print by Merge, reminding us that while the band's taut rhythms, spiky guitars, and jaded urbanity have always been with them, the starkly gestural rock they perfected on later efforts was only attained by a gradual paring away of excesses.

Republic

Pop Smoke's legacy continues with posthumous debut album, Shoot For The Stars.... Features include Quavo, 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby & more. True to the intentions of showing the breadth of his artistry on "Got It On Me", fans will discover a new side of Pop Smoke, stepping outside of the Brooklyn drill sound that he brought on a global scale.

Last Gang

Mondo Cozmo does not regret putting his fist through that window while crafting his second LP. In the aftermath, he learned how to “Say no,” departed amicably from the major label system, “taped a fucking pick to his cast” in order to play guitar, lost feeling in the aforementioned hand for two years, and wrote the rock ‘n’ roll record he always meant to write.

alt_text
Somewhat Damages/AWAL

While they have sonically mastered the art of dreamy, hook-laden synth-pop, The Naked and Famous have stuck to their guns as far as intimate storytelling. Recover is largely an autobiographical record rooted in a powerful sentiment of survival, and of the very human process of self-preservation - of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.

New Release Round-Up 07-24-20

New Releases

X - ALPHABETLAND - Fat Possum Records
ALPHABETLAND is the eighth studio album by American punk rock band X. Released digitally in April 2020, it is their first studio release in 27 years and the first with their original line-up in the past 35 years. The release has received positive reviews from critics. Alphabetland was recorded across several sessions in 2019 and 2020 with producer Rob Schnapf, who has previously worked with Elliott Smith, Beck, and Joyce Manor. Even though these songs date from a time when the band's only songwriters were vocalist Exene Cervenka and Doe, all tracks are credited to all four members of X and the recording sessions coincided with the individual musicians improving their relationships with one another.

The Naked And Famous - Recover - Somewhat Damaged LTD
The Naked And Famous' album reasserts the group as one of modern indie-pop's most exciting sonic trailblazers, taking them to emotionally inspired depths, while maintaining the fresh effervescence that has led to over 600 million collective streams to date. While they have sonically mastered the art of dreamy, hook-laden synth-pop, The Naked and Famous have stuck to their guns as far as intimate storytelling. Recover is largely an autobiographical record rooted in a powerful sentiment of survival, and of the very human process of self-preservation - of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.

Neck Deep - All Distortions Are Intentional - Hopeless Records
With this album Neck Deep wants to continue carving out their own unique space within rock, punk, and alternative music. They have no delusions of "saving rock" or being the biggest rock band out there. They just want to remain Neck Deep and be an even bigger, better Neck Deep than before. They understand their roots are in pop punk, but want to expand on their sound in their own way, taking inspiration from artists like The Beatles and Nirvana who did things their own way and still were able to be massive.

PJ Harvey - Dry + Dry Demos

Produced over the course of two years, Yaeji started writing with no specific narrative in mind. Through that freedom, melded in cozy and laidback production, the album spans a wide range of sounds, including the Korean indie rock and electronica that she listened to as a teenager in Seoul, and late ’90s and early 2000s hip hop and R&B she grew up listening to.

Since breaking through with her first two Eps, Arca’s created an unprecedented body of work drawing from club music, experimental noise, and the ballad tradition of her native Venezuela, while reaching beyond music to encompass performance, visual art, and technology. For KiCk i, Arca pursues pleasure, dignity, and dance floor liberation by refracting club music, reggaeton, and pop through her radical vision.

After a legendary career as the enigmatic frontman for Pulp, and a successful run of solo albums and collaborations, Jarvis Cocker debuts his first new full length album since 2009 with musical project JARV IS... an ongoing live experience because life is an ongoing live experience. This is not a live album. It's an alive album.

Epic

In a departure from the nuanced introspection of her previous work, Fetch the Bolt Cutters is Fiona Apple’s fifth studio album and her first in eight years since 2012’s The Idler Wheel. It’s the sound of a woman freeing herself from the constraints of form, expectation, and establishment — burning everything down to make a profoundly singular work unlike anything that’s ever existed.

Red Bull Records

Known for their stellar synth-pop melodies, and relatable lyrics about love, loss and everything in-between, pop quartet The Aces have gained worldwide popularity since their 2018 debut album, When My Heart Felt Volcanic. They describe the new record as a "whole new chapter" for them –– an "an exploration" that deepens their previously established feel-good sound.

Capitol

The intimate collection of songs featured on Manos’ debut EP has been described as raw and deeply personal. The artist explained, “If it feels like looking in on something private, it is”. The New York Times called “Tennessee,” first single, “An electronic lament, Auto-Tuned and steeped in James Blake and Frank Ocean.”

New West Records

While the Gentlemen’s sound is clearly steeped in the classic roots, rock and pop music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, there’s a dreamy, spacey, and occasionally progressive element. Add in elements of funk, soul, country, r&b, southern rock, gospel and you have more than just a mere album. Rather, Floor It!!! is a rich and righteous ride.

4AD

While on a surface level, Species is an exploration of the sonic possibilities of the Farfisa organ, aided only by a clarinet and double bass, it’s a nod to both humanity and humility. It’s also about suspended time and trance; not just a steady movement from A to B, but as something that flows, meanders and eddies, like water.

Blue Note

The session for Just Coolin’ (March 8, 1959) finds The Jazz Messengers’ saxophone chair in transition. The band had last recorded in October 1958 when they cemented their place in jazz history with the classic album Moanin’ featuring Benny Golson on tenor saxophone. By July 1959, Blakey had recruited tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter who would remain a fixture of the band until 1964.

Gaslighter (produced by Fun.’s Jack Antonoff) is the brilliant new album from the superstars, renegades, innovators, heroes, villains, and moms that have grown from a band into a cultural phenomenon.

Normaltown Records

Written over the course of a decade in which the Athens, Georgia-based duo was primarily known for their own respective projects, the songs here represent something of a look behind the curtain, a captivating series of musical journal entries that reveal the evolution of a relationship in all its messy, honest, imperfect beauty.

Goldstar Recordings

The fourth album by Nashville-based self-described “sunshine pop” band. This twelve-song-set is their boldest work to date, breaking sonic barriers while maintaining lush melodies and artistic influences. Musically adjacent to successful pop artists from the 1960s and 70s like The Beach Boys, Turtles, Association, Grass Roots.

Rounder

In a departure from the nuanced introspection of her previous work, World On the Ground unfolds as a finely wrought collection of stories from her hometown of Wimberley, Texas (population: 2,626), presenting a series of character sketches nearly novelistic in emotional scope. Jarosz reveals her remarkable gift for slipping into the inner lives of others and patiently uncovering so much indelible insight.

RSD is now scheduled to be celebrated with special, properly distanced release dates on Saturdays in August, September and October.


Record Store Day will look very different this year, but supporting indie record stores may be more important than ever. We don't know what sort of rules will be in place, or what sort of gatherings people will be in the mood for this year, so we're focusing on the music and getting the really great titles on the RSD Official List this year into the stores and into your hands, in the most financially and socially responsible way.

The titles on the RSD 2020 Official List, launched on March 5th, will be released at participating record stores on one of these three RSD Drops: August 29th, September 26th, and October 24th.   The new version of The List, with newly assigned RSD Drops dates will launch on June 1 so check back here for a look at when you'll be able to pick up the titles on your RSD 2020 wishlist at your local record store.

Haim regularly push themselves out of their comfort zones, experimenting with glitchy electronics, slatherings of sax, and dubby syncopation (“Another Try”, which feels like a sparkier sibling to Lana Del Rey’s cover of Sublime’s ‘Doin’ Time’). Between all of the new, though, the sisters are still experts at deploying irresistible rock, like the rousing, shout-a-long brilliance of “The Steps.”

Grey Daze, Chester Bennington’s pre-Linkin Park outfit, had just reformed before the untimely death of Bennington in 2017.

Corb Lund embraces his rich and rustic western heritage with a style that’s unique, honest and resolute, while touching on a range of cowboy themes — from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons, to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch. It’s a classic sound with a twist, something of a rarity these days, but one that evokes the spirit of the American West, past and present.

Monovision is Grammy Award-winning artist Ray LaMontagne’s eighth studio album.

The legendary dancehall singer’s 13th studio album - his first since Grammy-winning Before the Dawn in 2010. Banton says of the album, “[it] comprises 20 tracks. Why? Because it’s 2020... 2020 has a deeper understanding in my mind. It resonates with a clear vision and seeing things for what it is. After a 10-year absence, we try to give the people some music for that missing time.“

Sumerian

Like A House On Fire is an album that shows the group's continuity of a more straight forward and melodic hard rock sound, as established on their previous self-titled fifth album, while also shifting into different genres. It’s also yet another Asking Alexandria album that will divide opinion. And, once again, the band themselves are unlikely to care.

Blue Note

Color of Noize reflects a melting pot of influence and experience with jazz flow, hip-hop groove, soulful depth, spiritual uplift, and creative fire — but the concept is best described in more abstract terms. As Hodge lays it out, “It’s the contrast, it’s the beauty, it’s the chaos, it’s the freedom — all of that.”

Although the album directs itself at the failures of people to love and be loved, it also seeks to restore justice and attain blissful union. Its arc crests through the dark towards the light and learns how to dance with the dizzying rhythms of the heart. The songs bubble, sustain, dissolve, expand, retract.

Ocean Alley

Guitarists Mitch Galbraith says of the new album, “It’s pushing forward into the unknown.” An unknown that consists of 70's guitar rock, country and western, old school funk and synth-heavy new wave to create a deeply contemplative and atmospheric odyssey reminiscent of music legends including Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits and Pink Floyd.

Growing out of Jones’ acclaimed singles series, the unreleased songs unexpectedly congealed into an album of tremendous depth and beauty. Featuring a range of collaborators from Brian Blade to Jeff Tweedy, Pick Me Up Off The Floor is connected by the sly groove of her piano trios, lyrics that confront loss and portend hope, and a mood that leans into darkness before ultimately finding the light.

Hailed as an “Americana prodigy” by Rolling Stone and one of the “teenagers shaping pop” by The New Yorker, Brue has always been an artist seemingly wise beyond his years. But on Crash Test Kid he often gets at the heart of a matter or melody with just a simple but insightful turn of phrase or cleverly-picked guitar.

For years, Trixie Mattel has broken boundaries not only for drag performers in the music world but also for LGBTQ+ artists in the genres of country, folk and Americana.
