New Release Round-Up 07-22-14

Hot on the heels of their acclaimed album Indigo Meadow, The Black Angels release their new EP Clear Lake Forest featuring 7 entirely new tracks.  Originally released as a limited edition 10" Vinyl for Record Store Day the EP is now available on CD or Limited Edition Clear 12" Vinyl.

Ever since his single War Sweater jettisoned him into stardom five years ago (thanks to a game-changing plug on One Tree Hill), Wakey!Wakey! has built a following that's as passionate as his compositions. Built on broader themes such as rescue and hope, Salvation is the follow-up to Wakey!Wakey!'s acclaimed debut, Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last time I Saw You.

Heaven & Earth is the first YES album featuring new singer Jon Davison along with bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, and keyboardist Geoff Downes and follows on the heels of the successful and acclaimed 2011 release, Fly From Here. The new album was produced by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, The Who, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Cars, Foreigner, Journey, Cheap Trick etc.)

In the grand tradition of great pop duos like Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, Captain and Tenille, Simon and Garfunkel, Hall and Oates, and Shields and Yarnell; Got a Girl is the blossoming collaboration between Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Smashed; The Spectacular Now) and superproducer Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura (Gorillaz; Deltron 3030).  On their debut album I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, Got a Girl serves up a sweet and sharply carbonated cocktail of the epic, the baroque, the absurd by turns sentimental and postmodern, and in total, utterly irresistible.


Mike Doughty - Live At Kens HouseLast year Mike Doughty went on tour playing only songs from his old 90's band, Soul Coughing. The last 4 days of the tour, Pete Wilhoit, Catherine Popper, and Doughty himself recorded an album of the Soul Coughing songs they played during the tour performed live.  Live At Ken's House is available now and you can preview the album here and watch the video for his reworking of the track Super Bon Bon






Plus there are other great, new releases including Toronto based Alvvays who on their debut album Alvvays have created a sun-splashed record which is loud and clear and sure. Houston-based R&B singer Dominique Henry AKA Love Dominique follows up her critically successful EP Wicked Heart with the self titled album Love Dominique.  ZZ Top underscore their bad and nationwide bonafides with The Baddest, a hit collection packed with many of the biggest songs that have made "that little ol band from Texas" among rock's most legendary groups. Two-time Grammy Award-winning Chicago rapper, actor Common releases his tenth studio album Nobody's Smiling. British synthpop artist La Roux returns with Trouble In Paradise which may well be the best pop album we will hear this year.  And The Raveonettes Pe'ahi is the duo’s finest effort in years and a great example of what shoegazey noise-pop can do in 2014.

Jenny Lewis - The VoyagerThe Voyager is Jenny Lewis's most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager's rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis' longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness. The album is available now for pre order and you can check out the fantastic video for her recent single Just One Of The Guys which features a few of her famous friends taking on band duties.

New Release Round-Up 07-15-14

New Release Round-Up 07-15-14

Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business

Morrissey is one of the few iconic musicians making radical, counter-cultural work, and Harvest Records is proud to release his latest album World Peace Is None Of Your Business which explores the tragedy of human apathy in our turbulent, modern era. Morrissey's career as a writer reaches new lyrical heights but maintains his signature humor, drama, and emotional longing. World Peace Is None Of Your Business was produced by Joe Chiccarelli at La Fabrique Studios in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as watch the moving video for his spoken word track Earth Is The Loneliest Planet here.  

Despite the internal lineup changes and increased success that has followed Rise Against it is clear that on their seventh album The Black Market they have not lost any of the angst and soul that made the Chicago activist punks such a thrilling band in the first place. Sure they have become more melodic but the defiant energy and aggression is all still there, as witnessed on their lead single I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore.

Jason Mraz - YesJason Mraz’s fifth studio release, YES! sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. “YES!,” produced by Mraz along with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Rilo Kiley), was recorded in rural Omaha, Nebraska and inland Oceanside, California. While somewhat intimate and esoteric, “YES!” still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as check out the beautiful video for his single Love Someone.


After playing live together since 2008, Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones and Catherine Popper have at last taken their collaboration into the studio.  As Puss N Boots they release their album No Fools, No Fun which includes five original songs two each from Dobson and Popper, one from Jones and seven spirited cover tunes, all culled from Puss n Boots live repertoire.

Luluc - PasserbyPasserby is the second album by Australian/Brooklyn band Luluc; it is their first international release and their Sub Pop debut. Co-produced by the band and The National's Aaron Dessner, Passerby shows off all of Luluc's best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo's debut while adding textures built with a cadre of impressive players. Band influences like Simon and Garfunkel and Gillian Welch (and, of course, Nick Drake) can be felt throughout Passerby, while the poignant restraint aligns them well with label mates Low. The album is available now and you can preview the album here which includes their incredible first single Without A Face




Plus there are other great, new releases including Trampled by Turtles with their seventh studio album Wild Animals where themes of impermanence run deep, both lyrically and sonically. Hercules & Love Affair’s third and most versatile album to date, The Feast Of The Broken Heart sees visionary founder Andy Butler and his ever-evolving musical collective pushing the boundaries of house music, disco, and pop to create a collection of stunningly original new dancefloor anthems.  Spiritualized release a set of limited edition vinyl re issues which include Fucked Up InsideLet It Come Down and Royal Albert Hall, October 10 1997:Live. With his new album Terms of My SurrenderJohn Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. Bleachers unleash their new album Strange Desire.  The highly anticipated album was written and produced by Grammy Award winning musician Jack Antonoff with co-producer John Hill (MIA, Jay Z, Empire of the Sun) as well as Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Yaz, Erasure) and others.  And Jerry Garcia releases GarciaLive Volume Four: March 22nd, 1978 Veteran's Hall, a 2 CD Set featuring over 2 hours of previously unreleased music mastered from original soundboard recordings. The fourth installment of the recently launched archival series presents the Jerry Garcia Band's performance from March 22nd, 1978 at Veteran's Hall in Sebastopol, California.

It is the last song Cash wrote before his death. The single is backed with his Depeche Mode cover of "Personal Jesus".

Freeman - Freeman Freeman - Freeman
New CD: $12.99
Digital Tracks
FREEMAN is Aaron Freeman's first album of original material since disbanding Ween and getting sober, but it's not a record mired in its maker's private struggles. It's a collection of gorgeous, subtly offbeat songs. The lush psych pop of "...Stallion"; the melancholy plea of "More Than the World"; the unflappable, Plastic Ono Band esque blues-rock of "Gimmie One More." FREEMAN distills the Aaron Freeman aesthetic equal parts wonder & malaise, frankness & mysticism, defiance & vulnerability to its headiest essence, proving that this man, known for so long by another name, is finally free.

Digital: $7.99
<p>Drenge (Danish for "boys") hail from Castleton, near Sheffield in the North of England.

Even though the brothers are barely in their 20s, they have accumulated enough confidence, vim and vigour in their music to sweep any discerning listener off their feet.</p>
PS I Love You - For Those Who Stay PS I Love You - For Those Who Stay
New CD: $12.98
Digital Tracks
Half of PS I Love You left home. Paul Saulnier and Benjamin Nelson raised their band from Kingston's lowest places, raised it higher than basements and bars and late-night pits of the heart, higher than the ''Muster Station'', above the swirling fog of death dreams and depression, until this two-piece rock 'n' roll act was like a black and red corona setting St. George's aglow. And then while Nelson minded the fort(s), Paul left home - to Toronto, following his heart. ''For Those Who Stay'' is PS I Love You's third album, and it was made after Paul quit Kingston for a different big smoke. It was encouraged by the girding strength of love but of course it's still dredging and confused, of course it's still resplendent in its churn. Of course the band had to go back to Kingston to record it - working at a place called the Bathhouse, the duo's first time in ''a proper studio.''

Within The Ruins - Phenomena Within The Ruins - Phenomena
New CD: $11.99
Digital: $9.99
Who says a band needs to disappear for years at a time between albums? Pantera dropped a classic album every other year from 1990 to 1996. The late Chuck Schuldiner unleashed seven classic Death albums in the span of just over ten years. So when a band hits the kind of creative stride, chemistry and metallic momentum WITHIN THE RUINS tapped into with last year's breakthrough album they'd be fools to slow down now.

Saga - Saga City Saga - Saga City
New CD: $13.99
Digital: $12.99
With Saga's new album 'Sagacity' , the Canadian progressive rockers manage to keep their signature sound alive with a touch of modernity. Or as Michael Sadler puts it: For me this album marks a return to many of the signature elements that put Saga on the map the onset of the band's career, while maintaining a firm grip on the here and now. The balance between past, present and future is the key and I think that's what we've managed to achieve. Quite simply, this is SAGA...2014!
