New Releases - March 3rd

Purity Ring - Another Eternity (4AD)

Purity Ring, the electronic-pop innovators Megan James and Corin Roddick, reveal another eternity their 2nd album and first new music in over 2 years. The Canadian duo's breakthrough debut album Shrines earned them Pitchfork's Best New Music, the #1 spot on iTunes electronic chart and praise from New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR and more. The release was followed by a SOLD-OUT headlining world tour and festival performances at Coachella, Pitchfork, Bonnaroo and more.

Of Montreal - Aureate Gloom (Polyvinyl)

"A golden despondency" is how Kevin Barnes translates the meaning behind Aureate Gloom, the title he gave of Montreal's 13th full-length album. The oxymoron is one Barnes says best describes the overall state of his life and mental outlook while working on the record - penning lyrics so personal they sound like entries ripped from a journal that should be permanently kept under lock and key.

Moon Duo - Shadow of the Sun (Sacred Bones)

Moon Duo began work on their latest album during a period in which they faced a curious new reality. Freed from deadlines and expectations, and suddenly off the road for a stretch, Ripley and Sanae found themselves experiencing strange shifts in their perceptions of reality. Like the beginning of an acid trip, or the edge of dusk, when shadows converge mysteriously with light, life began to slip into a surreal dream, and then back, suddenly, without warning. Unstable in these strange shadows and light, the band turned to music to tether themselves to of sanity.

Brandi Carlile - Firewatcher's Daughter (ATO)

Brandi Carlile's fifth studio album. It is the follow-up to Bear Creek, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart in 2012. A literate singer/songwriter whose music splits the difference between pop/rock and folksy Americana, Brandi returns with her best album to date.

Tuxedo - s/t (Stones Throw)

Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One join forces for their new project Tuxedo. They are descendants of the one family of funk, where you will find groups such as Chic, Shalamar, Plush & Zapp. The album was mixed by original disco don dada John Morales at his home studio in South Plainfield, New Jersey. I flew out there, Mayer says. His wife made me spaghetti and everything.

Azealia Banks - Broke With Expensive Taste (Prospect Park)

The highly anticipated debut album from Azealia Banks. The album that led many of the most critical Year End "Best of lists of 2014 including The NY Times (#3), Pitchfork (#25), The Guardian, Spin, Q, plus a host of websites and blog sites is finally releasing in physical format. "Broke With Expensive Taste is a project dripping in confidence, class, bursts of brilliance, and personality." - SPIN Magazine

BadBadNotGood & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul (Lex)

The collaborative album from Toronto jazz/hip-hop band BadBadNotGood and Staten Island rap champ Ghostface Killah. Inspired by 1960s and 70s music - taking inspiration from the recording techniques and production of that era, and eschewing sampling in favour of live instrumentation, BBNG with producer Frank Dukes have created a dramatic, cinematic musical staging for Ghostface's vivid storytelling. Sour Soul also features guest spots from MF DOOM, Elzhi, Danny Brown and prodigal new rapper Tree (Project Mayhem).

Future Brown - s/t (Warp)

Often dubbed a "supergroup", each member of Future Brown is a seasoned artist across genres. Fatima Al Qadiri, a Kuwaiti musician and visual artist, last year debuted her LP via the infamous Hyperdub. LA-based Daniel Pineda and Asma Maroof have been producing and DJing as Nguzunguzu and worked with rappers Le1f, M.I.A and R&B singer Kelela. J-Cush, runs Lit City Trax from NYC, a label providing an outlet for urban music from every corner of the globe including the late Chicago footwork legend DJ Rashad. Future Brown manage to catalyze a cosmopolitan, experimental approach to contemporary urban sounds.

Lady Lamb And The Beekeeper - After (Mom + Pop)

Aly Spaltro began recording and making music as Lady Lamb from a video store basement after house and distributed handmade recordings to local record stores. Lady Lamb's debut on Brooklyn indie Ba Da Bing drew praise from Paste, Pitchfork, Consequence Of Sound, and NPR's All Things Considered. She toured with the likes of Typhoon, Beirut, Sharon Van Etten and Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

Gill Landry - s/t (ATO)

The 3rd solo album (and first for ATO) by Gill Landry, a member of Old Crow Medicine Show. Landry's solo work finds him crafting country-folk tunes that are more sparser than his day gig and that would not be out of place in the 1970s Texas singer-songwriter movement.

Buxton - Half a Native (New West)

Some places you feel like you only sort of fit in and it is this theme that permeates Houston based folk rock band Buxton's new aptly titled album. One of the leading lights of an emerging music scene from a city with a burgeoning youth culture, Buxton have won 2 Houston Press Music awards as best Houston Folk/Americana band as well as Best Male Vocals (Sergio Trevino). Their new album ventures into vast sonic territories, sometimes pairing atmospheric piano with off-kilter electric guitar, blanketed by Trevino's heart-clenched voice and melancholic but optimist lyrics.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - Chasing Yesterday (Sour Mash)

Chasing Yesterday marks a new chapter and sound for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. It's the first album to be produced as well as written by Noel himself, and features a much broader array of instrumentation than ever before, the result is a rich, expansive and multi-layered record, drawing from a range of disparate influences - from west coast rock to classic rock n' roll and even some space jazz.

Lilly Hiatt - Royal Blue (Normaltown)

East Nashville's firebrand returns with a feisty, adventurous and smart follow-up to her critically lauded debut full-length. Recorded at producer Adam Landry's (Deertick, Diamond Rugs, T. Hardy Morris) Nashville studio Playground Sound, the new tracks skirt the edges of any neat genre definitions, boldly combining sounds of Austin folk rock, Pacific Northwest indie, pre-Oasis Britpop, 90s alt guitars, 00s indie synth and NY punk circa 1977.

Young Buffalo - House (Votiv)

There's nothing typical about Oxford, Mississippi-based band Young Buffalo or the story behind their debut album, House. Produced by Dave Schiffman (Haim, Weezer), it establishes the 5 piece as a band that's as unique as the city where they were born. Falling somewhere between Mikal Cronin, Beach Boys, and "Reptilia"-era Strokes, the quintet have been working steadily on the record since 2012. They've got an effervescent brand of pop/rock to lift spirits after a long day.
