New Releases - July 24th

Ducktails - St Catherine (Domino)

St. Catherine is the 2015 album from Ducktails, the solo project of Real Estate's Matt Mondanile. It is by far his most accomplished album to date. The album is filled with his baroque pop flourishes and layered with his soothing, but sharp vocals. Recorded in Los Angeles and Berlin and mixed by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, FIDLAR), St. Catherine is a complex, moody work filled with yearning and lots of the gorgeous melodic fretwork for which Mondanile has become well known for with his work in Real Estate.

Flying Saucer Attack - Instrumentals 2015 (Drag City)

Flying Saucer Attack present Instrumentals 2015, their first album in 15 years. Comprised of 15 fresh David Pearce solo performances recorded in characteristically lo-fi manner at home, using guitars only on tape and CD-R, Instrumentals 2015 is an album that will appeal both to FSA diehards and those wholly unfamiliar with the outfit's recorded output. The 15 tracks present an impressionistic narrative which transports the listener through the excoriating dronescapes and rueful introspection of the album's early pieces to the more redemptive cadences of the its closing half. Given its sense of momentum, maintained through Pearce's thoughtful sequencing, this is an album that should be experienced in its entirety, the better to appreciate its deliberate emotional arc.

Amy Helm - Didn't It Rain (eOne)

After years of recording and touring as a member of alt-country stalwarts Ollabelle, her father Levon Helm's band and her own celebrated group, Amy is finally ready to release her debut album under her own name. Featuring and produced by fellow Ollabelle member Byron Isaacs and Levon Helm band alums Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, "Didn't It Rain" will definitely be a contender for Americana event of the year. The album also features Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne, John Medeski and Elizabeth Mitchell. The album marked he final recording sessions for Levon, who acted as executive producer as well as his trademark drumming to three tracks.

Strange Wilds - Subjective Concepts (Sub Pop)

Strange Wilds is a musical power-trio from Olympia, Washington. They slay with the hellish fury of the Northwest hardcore scene's best, the heavenly scuzz of a Bleach-era Nirvana, and the purgatorial punishment of Touch & Go post-rock meets Devo's de-evolution machine. The 11 songs here bleed with the hybrid DNA of Seattle's past and future, disparate scenes fused together with sneering menace and intelligent fury in equal shares. Some songs plow through the thick fog of sludge and dirge, while others soar and speed along at breakneck pace. The titles are heady; the sensations are primal. Riffs and energy are kings in their world, connecting dots and moving the whole dense show along.

Sleaford Mods - Key Markets (Harbringer)

Their admirers in the media have cited reference points such as the Fall, John Cooper Clarke, Streets, and New York avant-gardists Suicide. But to describe the Sleaford sound is not easy. The music is unbelievably sparse, sometimes stripped down to just bass and drums, usually clattering along as if to evoke a mind in overdrive. Jason Williamson's words - delivered relentlessly, and in his chewy East Midlands accent - often flip between direct descriptions of life's most rage-inducing aspects ("I worked my dreams off for two bits of ravioli and a warm bottle of Smirnoff/ Under a manager that doesn't have a fucking clue"), stream-of-consciousness tirades that conjure up a world of sticky cafe table-tops, grinding hangovers, cold comfort of consumerism and the odd political statement.

Grave Babies - Holographic Violence (Hardly Art)

In the five years since their debut album Deathface was released, founder Danny Wahlfeldt has been handling all songwriting and recording duties for the Seattle-based band, with invaluable help from friends in performing their material live. For Holographic Violence, he chose a different path, enlisting the help of Bryce Brown (Crypts) on bass and Mark Gajadhar (Blood Brothers, Past Lives) on drums, causing a significant change in the band's overall sound. Holographic Violence is Grave Babies' second Hardly Art full-length after Crusher (2013), and further explores the themes of nihilism, the pending doom of mankind, and shaming humanity, which the band has been building their gloomy reputation on since the beginning.

Omar Souleyman - Bahdeni Nami (Monkeytown)

Originating from the Hasake region of Syria, Souleyman earned his reputation by singing and leading years of weddings, birthdays, christenings, corporate parties, and more, answering invitations from all peoples living in the region - be they Muslims, Christians, Kurds, Iraqis, Syrians, Assyrians. For this album Souleyman opened his doors to collaborations with a number of renowned electronic producers, all of whom were established fans eager to offer unique interpretations of his sound. Four Tet returns to produce a track, Gilles Peterson lends his considerable talents to one song, Modeselektor turn in the two fastest dance numbers of the set, and Legowelt offers a remix. Omar continues to tirelessly bring his wild dance party to all corners of the globe, everywhere from SXSW to the Nobel Peace Prize Concert to rock clubs in cities around the world. Despite the world's insistence in associating him with his home country's unending war, Omar Souleyman gives back nothing but love.

Watkins Family Hour - s/t (Family Hour)

The acclaimed musical collective featuring siblings Sara and Sean Watkins along with Fiona Apple, Benmont Tench, Don Heffington, Greg Leisz and Sebastian Steinberg. The album, recorded live over three days in the studio of their friend and producer-engineer Sheldon Gomberg, captures the freewheeling spirit of the collective's live shows. An all-covers affair, the album additionally includes Sara leading vocals on the Grateful Dead's "Brokedown Palace," Sean essaying Roger Miller's wistful "Not In Nottingham," from Disney's 1973 animated Robin Hood, and Apple singing "Where I Ought To Be," originally performed by Skeeter Davis.

Warren Haynes w/ Railroad Earth - Ashes & Dust (Concord)

Ashes and Dust is a masterful work of art and a particularly important statement for the famed songwriter. The songs are immediately and clearly different from his usual style - encompassing beautiful acoustic arrangements, a rootsy/Americana soundscape and honeyed vocals that cut straight through to the soul. Grammy winner Warren Haynes is rightly revered as one of the best guitarists in the world. Throughout his career, he played with - among others, the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule and The Grateful Dead.

Kasey Chambers - Bittersweet (Sugar Hill)

Kasey is big in Australia. The Aussie lass has sold lots of discs and won a butt-load of awards in her native country during the course of her 15 year recording career. Seven of her ten albums have hit the Australian top 10, including four that reached number one. She's considered Country in Oz, but she shares little in common with the Nashville stars of today. Her music harkens back to the classic sounds of Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan. The question of why Aussies appreciate American-style music more than Americans is hard to fathom. What matters though, is Chambers new disc mostly kicks butt.
