New Releases - June 15

Kevin Krauter - Toss Up (Bayonet)

In between tours, the Indiana musician spent long hours in his basement, guitars and vintage keyboards his only company, and tested out ideas, explored new sonic avenues, savored new sounds, and taught himself how to play a few instruments. An insightful songwriter with a lyrical style that is both economical and evocative, Kevin crafts songs that scramble a range of influences - 60s flower pop, 70s easy listening, 80s New Wave, 90s alt-radio, 00s indie rock. Free balsa-wood flyer w/ purchase while they last!

Protomartyr - Consolation EP (Domino)

A 4 song EP of brand new songs recorded in collaboration with Kelley Deal (The Breeders) and Mike Montgomery (R.Ring, Ampline). "They were graciously tolerant and receptive to my production ideas on the songs and the project quickly grew beyond our private orb. We have cello, viola and even bass clarinet, and I do some singing. There's a lot of trust involved when an artist places their songs in your hands, and we were very mindful of that while intentionally trying to take the songs in new directions." - Kelley Deal

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - Hope Downs (Sub Pop)

It's rare that a band's debut album sounds as confident and self-assured as RBCF's Hope Downs. To say that the first LP from the Melbourne quintet improves on their buzz-building EPs from the last few years would be an understatement: the promise those early releases hinted at is fully realized here, with ten songs of urgent, passionate guitar pop that elicit warm memories of bands past, from the Go-Betweens' jangle to the charmingly lo-fi trappings of New Zealand's Flying Nun label.

Fantastic Negrito - Please Don't Be Dead (Cooking)

"A cross between James Brown, Led Zeppelin and Chuck Berry with a Don King haircut, Negrito is a brilliant, natural showman who gave us whats described as one of those "lemon sorbet" moments - the kind that take audiences out of their comfort zone and define festivals." - The Guardian 2017

Yuno - Moodie (Sub Pop)

Moodie is such a New York record. It veers from Tame Impala psych-pop to wonky Vampire Weekend college rock via backpacker hip-hop and, well, Len's "Steal My Sunshine." It's a collection of songs that chimes with pop's increasing lack of concern for genre. It's the opposite of tribal, as multi-cultural and diverse as a ride on the NYC subway, across all five boroughs.

Melody's Echo Chamber - Bon Voyage (Fat Possum)

Melody's Echo Chamber, aka French musician Melody Prochet and her long-awaited sophomore album. Prochet has collaborated with the Amazing's Fredrik Swahn and Dungen's Reine Fiske. Other guests include Dungen's Gustav Esjtes and Johan Holmegaard- she describes the Danish group as "soulmates and extreme beings, uncompromisingly intense and sensitive"- and Pond's Nicholas Allbrook.

Mourn - Sorpresa Familia (Captured Tracks)

The obstacles and injustice Mourn have faced in recent years has provided a fertile foundation for new songs that display a palpable maturity and evolution, while retaining every bit of the fiery angst and attitude that has shaped their sound from the start. Railing against greedy businesses, exploitation, fake friends, dishonest figures of authority, and ever complicated global politics, it's an album of decidedly higher stakes than their past outputs, delivered with the newfound poetic grace of a band rising up out of the ashes of those who stood in their way.

Marisa Anderson - Cloud Corner (Thrill Jockey)

Marisa Anderson is undeniably a master of the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on guitar. Here, she expands on those styles as well as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of remarkably intimate beauty. Marisa fiters musical history through her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music. Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the horizon it looks towards.

Calpurnia - Scout (Royal Mountain)

Calpurnia is a 4-piece from Vancouver, Canada, led by Finn Wolfhard who is best known for his performances in 'Stranger Things' and 'It'. Through a chance meeting on the set of a music video shoot, Finn and drummer Malcolm Craig hit it off immediately. This chemistry then led to Ayla Tesler-Mabe and Jack Anderson to join the band, and through their unequivocal passion for music, Calpurnia was created.

VA - African Scream Contest 2 (Analog Africa)

Who knew that some of the most exciting Afro-funk records of all time were actually made in the small West African country of Benin? Once Analog Africa released the first African Scream Contest in 2008, the proof was there for all to hear; gut-busting yelps, lethally well-drilled horn sections and irresistibly insistent rhythms added up to a record that took you into its own space. Right from the laceratingly raw guitar fanfare which kicks off Les Sympathics de Porto Novo's pile-driving opener, it's clear that African Scream Contest 2 is every bit as joyous a voyage of discovery as its predecessor. Includes meticulously researched text and effortlessly fashion-forward photography, supplied by the artists themselves.
