New Releases - October 23

Bruce Springsteen - Letter To You (Columbia)

Recorded at his home studio in New Jersey with the E Street Band, it is Bruce's 20th album, and is his first album including the E Street Band since 2012's High Hopes. "I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we've never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I've ever had." It includes nine recently written songs, as well as new recordings of 3 of his legendary, but previously unreleased, compositions from the 70s, "Janey Needs a Shooter," "If I Was the Priest," and "Song for Orphans."

The Mountain Goats - Getting Into Knives (Merge)

In March, John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Matt Douglas, and Jon Wurster, aka The Mountain Goats band, visited legendary studio Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, TN. Darnielle armed his band with new songs and reunited with producer Matt Ross-Spang who engineered last year's In League with Dragons. In the same room where The Cramps tracked their 1980 debut album, The Mountain Goats spent a week capturing the magic of a band at the top of it's game. The result is a perfect album for the millions of us who have spent many idle hours contemplating whether we ought to be honest with ourselves and just get massively into knives.

Adrianne Lenker - Songs and Instrumentals (4AD)

Big Thief's singer/guitarist/songwriter returns with an album of songs and an album of instrumentals. "Nine of these songs were written freshly during the recording session. We began and closed each day with an improvised acoustic guitar instrumental, and we made a collage of our favorite pieces, which became the first side of the instrumentals album. I'm grateful that this music has come into existence. These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you." - Adrianne Lenker

This Is The Kit - Off Off On (Rough Trade)

Kate Stables' group This Is The Kit have created a name for themselves with songs that untangle emotional knots and weave remarkable stories. Their second album for Rough Trade Records, Off Off On, is a beautifully clear distillation of Stables' songwriting gifts. The songs are exquisitely astute, the album title suggesting life's glitchy rhythms ' 'two steps backwards, one step forwards' Swinging between good places and bad places inside and out.' Color LP while they last.

Gorillaz - Song Machine, Season One (WB)

Gorillaz' newest concept started in January, releasing brand new material episodically – and has continued throughout the year. The ever-evolving process has seen our characters joined by an expanding roster of collaborators. The result is an expansive collection of tracks embracing a myriad of sounds, styles, genres and attitudes- including Beck, Elton John, Fatoumata Diawara, Georgia, Kano, Leee John, Octavian, Peter Hook, Robert Smith, Roxani Arias, Schoolboy Q, Slaves, Slowthai, St Vincent and 6lack, as well as Chai, Earthgang, Goldlink, Joan As Police Woman, Jpegmafia, Moonchild Sanelly, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Skepta and the late Tony Allen.

Clipping - Visions of Bodies Being Burned (Sub Pop)

Last Halloween, LA experimental rap mainstays Clipping ended their silence with the horrorcore-inspired There Existed an Addiction to Blood. Now, rapper Daveed Diggs, and producers Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson return with an even higher body count, more elaborate kills, and monsters that just won’t stay dead. Less a sequel than it is the second half of a planned diptych. Visions of Bodies Being Burned contains 16 more scary stories disguised as rap songs, incorporating as much influence from Ernest Dickerson, Clive Barker, and Shirley Jackson as it does from Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs, and Brotha Lynch Hung.
