New Releases - January 20th

Tycho - Epoch (Ghostly)

Nominated for the Grammy for Electronic Music! Epoch hones the sonic aesthetic of Dive while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awake, it explores darker themes and new musical territory. The album was produced and recorded by Scott Hansen predominantly in his home studio in Berkeley, California. The album was arranged alongside long time collaborator and partner in the project, Zac Brown. Brown contributed bass and guitar parts to the songwriting process. Rory O'Connor performed drums on the album. Hansen sees Epoch as a multi-dimensional artistic vision at the confluence of his graphic design work via ISO50 and music with Tycho. The graphic presentation of album artwork is as important as the music itself. Free slipmat w/ LP purchase!

Foxygen - Hang (Jagjaguwar)

Frequently compared to rock icons such as The Rolling Stones and David Bowie, which have been warranted in the past, Foxygen goes a decidedly different route on its fourth LP, Hang. Here, the L.A. act, composed of the duo Sam France and Jonathan Rado, emulates the Day-Glo ebullience of producer Dave Fridmann's Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev albums, with kitchen-sink ambition courtesy of a 40-piece orchestra, assisted by Matthew White and conducted by Trey Pollard. Also crashing the party are guest players such as The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd and The Lemon Twigs' Brian and Michael D'Addario. The band fortunately wears the opulence well throughout, as these pieces and guests embellish when they could easily clutter. Bonus flexi w/ LP purchase while they last.

Michael Chapman - 50 (Paradise of Bachelors)

After five decades of recording and touring, veteran British songwriter and guitar sage Michael Chapman has finally made what he calls his "American record," and the aptly titled 50 now stands as his late career masterwork, a moving legacy statement by a legend. Backed by a collaborative group of friends and acolytes- Steve Gunn (who also produced), Nathan Bowles (Pelt), James Elkington (Jeff Tweedy), Jason Meagher (No-Neck Blues Band), Jimi SeiTang (Rhyton), and fellow UK songwriting luminary Bridget St John- Chapman tears into both bold renderings of new songs and radical reinterpretations of material from his revered catalog, the crack band adeptly scaling the same rarefied sonic heights of classic Harvest albums like Fully Qualified Survivor, guided by a true survivor's instinct, wit, and wisdom. The result is a sublime chiaroscuro self-portrait, more shadow than light, as an invigorated Chapman wrestles with weighty themes of travel, memory, mortality, and redemption, his world-weary whispers assuming the incandescent power of prophecy.

Cherry Glazerr - Apocalipstick (Secretly Canadian)

Society would deem a prodigious girl can't be in a progressive rock band while also being in complete control of its creative vision, business plan and social messaging. Society is wrong. Clem, a 19 year old teen Queen dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her LA bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path. Back in 2014, much-loved Cali imprint Burger Records released their intoxicating debut Haxel Princess and Suicide Squeeze released the Had Ten Dollaz 7". Cherry Glazerr has evolved into a wildly complex, hugely guitar heavy, and unapologetically loud machine. Playing at the Blockhouse on 4/1!

Austra - Future Politics (Domino)

If you're still feeling drained and deadened by the traumas of 2016, perhaps it's time for a musical tonic. Like cold, clean water, Austra's 'Future Politics' washes clear the mental muck, leaving you feeling alive again. Latvian-Canadian producer Katie Stelmanis's aim on her electropop outfit's third album is, she's said, "a commitment 
to replace the approaching dystopia". Its beats are suitably bracing; where Austra's 2011 debut 'Feel It Break' was minimal and cold wave-y, and 2013's 'Olympia' embraced a warmer, housier feel, 'Future Politics' contains their most purposeful music yet, sci-fi synths bolstered by futuristic dreams, gearing you up for the hard work of rebuilding your faith in humanity.

David "Honeyboy" Edwards - I'm Gonna Tell You Somethin That I Know (Omnivore)

The last of the great Mississippi Delta bluesmen. Born in Shaw, Miss, on June 28, 1915, his life was intertwined with almost every blues legend including Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sunnyland Slim, Howlin' Wolf, and Muddy Waters. In early 2010, Honeyboy was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, and later that year returned to LA to perform at the G Spot. Even at 95 years old, Honeyboy was still singing and playing like a man of less than half that age. That show turned out to be the last time Honeyboy was filmed and recorded. The DVD contains over 20 minutes of Edwards giving advice to musicians and telling stories of his life, including vividly recalling the night Robert Johnson died, tales of Charlie Patton, Big Walter Horton, and much more.

Kid Koala w/ Emiliana Torrini - Music To Draw To: Satellite (Arts & Crafts)

An uncharted musical journey for the legendary scratch DJ, producer, and composer. Kid Koala's 5th studio album is an expansive work of ambient electronic soundscapes and chilling ballads sung by Icelandic artist Emiliana Torrini, with lyrics by Kid Koala. This inaugural volume in the Music To Draw To series is the renowned audio-collagist's first non-sample-based record, instead using an array of synthesizers, keys, guitars, strings, turntables, and inventive recording techniques to lay out this heartrending musical story about a couple separated by space travel. The output is over 72 atmospheric minutes of stardust settling over Kid Koala's trove of turntables and sentiment.
