New Releases - July 12

Khruangbin - Hasta El Cielo (Dead Oceans)

The glorious dub version of their album 'Con Todo El Mundo'. The full album has been processed anew along with two bonus dubs by renowned Jamaican producer Scientist. The band's exotic, spacious, psychedelic funk aligns with the dub treatment particularly well. Their sounds are rooted in the deepest waters of music from around the world, infused with classic soul, dub and psychedelia. Their debut album was heavily influenced by 60s-70s Thai cassettes. Con Todo El Mundo took inspiration not just from South East Asia but similarly underdiscovered funk and soul of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, particularly Iran. Limited Yellow LP!

Honey Radar - Ruby Puff of Dust (Whats Your Rupture)

The songs are short and sweet with diamond-bright hooks, strangely baroque melodies, and so much grit it feels like a spin through a rock tumbler is necessary to polish it enough so that styluses won't be mercilessly shredded. As usual, there's plenty of Guided by Voices-style mini-mod in the mix, some Elephant 6 whimsy, psychedelic weirdness, and garage rock strut, too. Jason Henn proves yet again that he's a master of writing songs that stick even as they barely have time to take off before the landing gear comes out. - Allmusic

Drab Majesty - Modern Mirror (Dais)

Fusing the sonic aesthetics of predecessors like New Order and The Cure within the cautious instruction of Greek mythology and modern scifi, Drab Majesty has birthed a hybrid of dreamy malaise, captured for a future moment. The first single, "Ellipsis", romantically plays up the distorted concept of courting through modern technology in a world that has yet to adapt, while on "Long Division", Deb's resounding guitar cascades around the chorus shared with No Joy frontwoman Jasamine White-Gluz, wistfully warning us against our vanity and self-obsession.

Kaina - Next to the Sun (Sooper)

In Chicago, cutting edge hip-hop and R&B artists are forging influential new sounds and catapulting one after the other into the national spotlight. Kaina has been at the edges of many of these successes and is one of the most prominent Latinx voices in this developing story. In the last two years she has regularly collaborated with some of the biggest names in Chicago hip-hop, graced the stages of major festivals, and amassed several million streams over a couple of EPs. Written by Kaina and co-produced with Sen Morimoto.

Bleached - Don't You Think You've Had Enough (Dead Oceans)

Producer Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) helped open every door to experimentation, wanting to be exploratory while keeping the sound singularly Bleached. The resulting album's explosive 12 tracks mark some of the sisters' most visceral, rawest songwriting to date - and some of their best. The work glimmers with inspiration found in touring with the The Damned and Paramore. That arena- ready pop, incisively catchy, was a palpable influence helping to push Bleached's sound in a new direction.

Gauche - A People's History of Gauche (Merge)

Washington, DC's Gauche presents a collective catharsis of anger, frustration, and trauma through creativity. They find their agency and joy through creating and performing music together in 36 minutes of groove-filled power punk. Sure, this music continues in the vein of the last 70’s greats like The Raincoats, The Rezillos, X-Ray Specs, and (my beloved) Slapp Happy. But this music jumps, bounces, and simply wiggles with the delight, just as, I suppose, the entire Garden of Eden bopped the very moment after our dear Eve pressed the forbidden E-5 button and unleashed the rock ‘n’ roll of “Johnny B. Goode” to an unsuspecting, but sadly groove-starved universe.

Kyle Craft - Showboat Honey (Sub Pop)

There is this curious equilibrium to existence: In order to create balance, the universe must giveth, and the universe must taketh. Kyle Craft, with his now solidified backing band, dubbed Showboat Honey, know this all too well. "This is basically an album centered around bad luck and good fortune hitting at the same time" Kyle and his band worked at such a feverish wine-fueled pace that they actually ended up with two completely different albums. But at the end of the day, they decided to combine the two into Showboat Honey, a moonstruck rock 'n' roll record teeming with reckless abandon.

Imperial Teen - Now We Are Timeless (Merge)

Imperial Teen's releases over the past 20+ years have been pointed and specific diaries of musical celebration, windows into the hypersensitive personal drama of relationships within the band, individual conquests and failures, and collective, aspirational hopes, dreams, and perspectives. Roddy Bottum, Will Schwartz, Jone Stebbins, and Lynn Perko Truell - who they've become, how they are dealing, and what their lives are in 2019 - all of this is on Imperial Teen's Now We Are Timeless.
