New Releases - November 17th

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - Soul of a Woman (Daptone)

Sharon's final studio album is a lush, orchestral masterpiece. A true testament to the life and career of Daptone's fearless leader and one of the world's greatest performers. Soul of a Woman features 11 songs which reveal that the emotion, dynamics, and drama of Jones' voice remained at full power until her final days. The songs on Soul Of A Woman exemplify two distinct sides of the band s sound. Side One showcases the grittier, bluesier material, giving her the room to flex her vocal prowess, creating a liveness that few studio albums posses. Side Two takes on a more sophisticated orchestral mood. Bonus photo w/ purchase while they last...

The Cowboys - s/t LP (HoZac)

This band manages to escape all of the pitfalls of modern DIY punk/garage and break out into a field of their own instantly. The songs have this hard-to-pin Midwest je ne sais quoi and and the guitar and rhythm section are just off-the-charts in their ability to bridge themselves between the polarity of tightness and looseness. Coming off like summery sons of The Gizmos circa 1981 at one minute, and then diving head-first into their other-worldly piano-based tracks, which surprisingly simmer along perfectly next to their punkish rockers without any abject knee-jerk derailment. - Victim of Time. RIYL: The Gizmos, The Saints, Walker Brothers, Velvet Underground, Todd Rundgren, Sparks, Eric & the Happy Thoughts, The Yolks, Modern Lovers

Charlotte Gainsbourg - Rest (Because)

Charlotte's first album in seven years. The LP is called Rest and it was produced by Sebastian (aka the guy who narrates "Facebook Story" on Frank Ocean's Blonde) and features collaborations with Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de-Homem-Christo, Paul McCartney, Owen Pallett, and Connan Mockasin. Listen to lead single "Rest" and preview the video, directed by Gainsbourg herself. One lucky buyer will find an autographed glossy in their LP!

Morrissey - Low In High School (Etienne)

Morrissey's first studio album since 2014 and the first on his new label, Etienne Records. Low In High School was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone's Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who has worked with The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to name a few). Morrissey's talent for combining political statements and beautiful melodies is more prevalent than ever, capturing the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world. Free mini-poster while they last!

Princess Nokia - 1992 Deluxe (Rough Trade)

NYC rapper Destiny Frasqueri has been releasing music online since she was in High School, and slowly bubbling up on the internet. Last year, with the self-release of her mixtape, she catapulted herself to the next level. She is not only a brilliant rapper & lyricist but a feminist icon who is unapologetically herself, and aligns equally with the values of punk rock and riot grrl, 90s R&B, and the best of forward-thinking hip-hop. This is powerful, passionate, outspoken, vibrant modern music with deep roots in both NYC and rap history. Expanded version includes the original 1992 tracks fully remastered + 8 brand new songs. Available as CD, LP or Cassette!

Mavis Staples - If All I Was Was Black (Anti)

Mavis is an American Music legend. She was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the 60s as singer for the legendary gospel group The Staples Singers. Mavis, along with her father, Pops, and siblings marched and worked alongside Martin Luther King Jr on the fight for equality in this country. In December 2016, Mavis went to Washington, DC to receive the coveted Kennedy Center Honors from President Obama, with whom she has had a long standing friendship. Mavis invited Wilco frontman and dear friend, Jeff Tweedy as her guest for the weekend's festivities. The two spent hours discussing the current events and how today's fight for equality is very similar to those in the 60s. Inspired by these events, Mavis and Jeff got together and wrote Mavis' new album.

Vess Ruhtenberg - Tremendous Downtime LP (self)

Though he's been a touring musician since the age of 18, Vess has never put out a solo album. While on the road with bands like the Lemonheads and Zero Boys, he was able to see the world and merge his passion for music and architecture. Though often serving as frontman/songwriter for bands like the Pieces, United States Three and Action Strasse, Vess never stepped out completely on his own... until now. Drums on "the times they better be changin'" and "You're done chasing me" by Devon Ashley. Mastered by Mahan Kalpa at Mahern Audio. No computers were used to record or mix this record, though it might've helped.

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight - Steals the Hits Off Country Beauties (Flannelgraph)

A new cassette-only EP of country classics done in the style of the Honest Weight. Includes: Heads Carolina, Tails California written by Tim Nichols & Mark D. Sanders, originally performed by Jo Dee Messina. How Can I Unlove You written by Joe South, originally performed by Lynn Anderson. Seven Year Ache written & originally performed by Roseanne Cash. Tender When I Want To Be written & originally performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter. (Do You Love Me) Just Say Yes written by Bob DiPiero, John Scott Sherill, and Dennis Robbins, originally performed by Highway 101.

VA - 13 Days of Xmas (Bloodshot)

Bloodshot's 13 Days of Christmas is a 13-song compilation of off-kilter original Christmas songs and unlikely covers by Bloodshot artists and friends like Murder By Death, Jon Langford, James Elkington, Dex Romweber, Barrence Whitfield, Devil in a Woodpile, Yawpers, Kelly Hogan, and Ha Ha Tonka. The collection runs the gamut of garage rock, doo wop, honky tonk, surf, and more. From the traditional to the subversive, there's something for everyone's stocking.
