New Music For You, Just the way you Like It:

New Releases - May 20th

Mike Adams at His Honest Weight - Casino Drone (Joyful Noise)

On his 3rd solo album, Mike Adams at His Honest Weight emerges as both a Hoosier power-pop auteur and a poet of the Indiana everyday. He crafts supremely catchy melodies and fashions ingenious arrangements that thrum with synthpop sparkle, shoegaze drone, classic rock fervor, and sonic textures that draw from easy listening as well as avant garde experiments. And it's all in service to sharply intelligent songs balancing whimsy and melancholy, exuberance and doubt. Adams recorded these eleven songs himself, recording almost all the instruments in his Bloomington living room. Red splatter Vinyl w/ bonus flexi available while they last!!

Honey Radar - Blank Cartoon (Whats Your Rupture)

Blank Cartoon is as Pollard-ian (or Flying Nun-ian) as ex-Hoosier Jason Henn has gotten at this point, as everything on this record is runaway adderall; a continuous stream of melodic consciousness where songs can expand from a few seconds of an idea into a four minute single just as tightly wound and bombastic as those seedlings. But little has changed from the their playbook if you've studied it up this point. Blank Cartoon does not abandon those warped 60s rock fantasies and the record wobbles on the turntable. What it does do is up the cohesive ante for Honey Radar, where the bursts of creativity are more than just fits, but tangible threads carefully stitched together.

Bob Dylan - Fallen Angels (Sony)

Fallen Angels is the 37th studio album from Bob Dylan. Featuring 12 classic American tunes written by some of music's most acclaimed and influential songwriters including Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Sammy Cahn And Carolyn Leigh- the album showcases Dylan's unique and much-lauded talents as a vocalist, arranger and bandleader. The Jack Frost-produced album marks the first new music from the artist since his 2015 release, Shadows In The Night.

Mudcrutch [Tom Petty] - 2 (Reprise)

The album is the follow up to the band's 2008 eponymous debut which Rolling Stone called "a country-rock instant classic" in a rave four star review. The new album is produced by band members Tom Petty and Mike Campbell with Ryan Ulyate. All members of Mudcrutch contribute songs on their new album. The album includes 7 originals written by Petty, with band members Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh & Benmont Tench composing one each.

Angry Angles [Jay Reatard] - s/t (Goner)

This 17-song collection comprises the complete studio recordings (+5 unreleased tracks) of Angry Angles, the Jay Reatard and Alix Brown project that came together shortly after the mid-2005 demise of The Lost Sounds. The band's songs are guitar-based noise-pop / punk (not "pop punk") certainly informed by the garage-rock / punk landscape that Lindsey was constantly and effortlessly schooling. There are outside influences (post-punk...whatever the hell that means, really) but "the hook" is the biggest concern at the end of the day.

Marissa Nadler - Strangers (Sacred Bones)

On her 7th album, Marissa has shed any self-imposed restrictions her earlier albums adhered to, stepped through a looking glass, and created a truly monumental work. Once again partnered with producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Black Mountain) Nadler has created an album equal in sonic quality to the apocalyptic lyrical tone that covers its 44 minutes.

Mutual Benefit - Skip A Sinking Stone (Mom + Pop)

Mutual Benefit's debut album was a fave of many from 2013. A short but gorgeous suite of seven exquisitely arranged baroque folk compositions, its peaceful, mellow mood belied an introspective lyrical theme, exploring the importance of being in control of one's own emotional well-being in order to adequately support others. Band leader Jordan Lee compares life's ups and downs to the act of skipping stones across a lake: some throws work out better than others, giving the album its title.

Andy Shauf - The Party (Anti)

Andy is sad-sack Saskatchewanian songwriter who grew up in a tiny town off the Trans-Canada Highway. His breakthrough album was called Bearer of Bad News. But don't feel bad for him. Social invitations have been pouring in from Jeff Tweedy, Nick Hornby and Low. Brevity is key: these vignettes are rooted in classic pop songwriting, with shades of the Shins, Belle & Sebastian, and Grandaddy seeping into Shauf's modern arrangements. This Prairie boy is the first Saskatchewanian musician with an international record deal since Joni Mitchell and Buffy Sainte-Marie.

Brett Dennen - Por Favor (Elektra)

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), Por Favor was recorded in Nashville and features ten new songs. Por Favor is Dennen's sixth full-length album.

Allen Ginsberg - The Last Word on First Blues (Omnivore)

Internationally revered as a Beat Generation spokesman- Allen's poetry is an iconic part of the counterculture spanning decades. His 1956 epic poem "Howl" inspired the songwriting of Bob Dylan as well as the 60s hippies. Punk rock also claimed him as an influence- including recording with The Clash on Combat Rock. In 1971, Allen called on Bob Dylan to record a slew of songs: political, gay rights, and just plain wacky! Along for the ride was Jack Kerouac's musical partner David Amram, Happy Traum, and a young avant-garde cellist; Arthur Russell. Allen was lyricist, composer, and lead vocalist. Omnivore is proud to reissue the album, plus much more- the deluxe 3CD set contains the original double LP, plus 11 previously unissued songs from 1971 and 1981 sessions, plus demos and live recordings including Dylan and/or Russell and even a cameo by Don Cherry on kazoo!

Methyl Ethel - Oh Inhuman Spectacle (4AD)

Hailing from the remote fringes of Perth, Western Australia, linchpin Jake Webb started Methyl Ethel in 2013 as a way of getting his bedroom recordings out in the public domain. Like 4AD peers Grimes and Bradford Cox, Webb wrote, played and recorded everything on Oh Inhuman Spectacle. Crafted in isolation, its understated psychedelic pop quickly drew positive plaudits from local media, leading Webb to recruit Chris Wright (drums) and Thom Stewart (bass) - friends from the tight-knit and thriving music scene in Perth - to realise the songs live as a fully-fledged band.

Pantha du Prince - The Triad (Rough Trade)

Since his first 12" in 2002, Hendrik Weber has steadily built himself a career as a progenitor of the organic, humanistic branch of minimal techno that has helped the genre earn itself the place at the cultural table that it now has. His first proper solo LP in 6 years further refines and advances his uniquely naturalistic style into a sweeping and grand, but detailed and absorbing album. The tracks evoke the tides' crashings as much as the orchestra's chamber, a cool night in a damp, mossy forest as much as the thrum of the dancefloor.
