New Releases - February 17th

Ryan Adams - Prisoner (Capitol)

Ryan Adams' first original studio album since 2014, featuring Do You Still Love Me. With Prisoner, Ryan songs tackle another milestone: his divorce from actress and singer Mandy Moore. And, though it sometimes returns to the calmer feel of his other recent studio albums, Prisoner in many ways feels like a retreat: to self-reflection, to primal emotions, and to a tense, rootsy rock sound that recalls the mid- to late-80s work of Bruce Springsteen. Limited Red vinyl version available. Bonus lithos and rolling papers with purchase while they last!

Bing & Ruth - No Home of the Mind (4AD)

Established in 2006, Bing & Ruth is an ever-evolving collective steered by composer David Moore. A pianist from Kansas and graduate of NY's school of Jazz and Contemporary Music at the New School, Moore's work follows in the great tradition of fellow alumni John Cage and Steve Reich, albeit looking past the more studied repetition of the style's forerunners toward a meditative form built on feeling. With Moore at its nucleus, the line-up has transmuted from the 11-strong line-up that created debut album City Lake to a cast of 7 for 2014's Tomorrow Was The Golden Age. With No Home of the Mind, the ensemble has been streamlined to a 5-person unit, exploring the piano's percussive qualities alongside running woodwinds, warbling tape delays and splattered upright bass lines that stare out with a wide-eyed transcendence, taking so-called "classical" music to new limits.

Tim Darcy - Saturday Night (Jagjaguwar)

The first solo album from Tim Darcy of Ought. Each track is woven to the next in a winding, complex journey through a charged, continuous present. There are love/love lost songs like the standout, almost-New Wave "Still Waking Up" in which a Smiths-esque melody builds upon an underbrush that recalls 60s AM pop and country. Darcy's unmistakable, commanding voice and lyrical phrasing are, as they are in Ought, an instrument here: vital to the entire affair. At the Bishop on 3/22!

Hanni El Khatib - Savage Times (Innovative Leisure)

Hanni's first idea for his Savage Times project was to do something he'd never done before. Instead, he ended up doing... well, everything he'd never done before. He'd be playing new instruments, writing in unfamiliar new ways, opening himself up to an unrelenting stream of ideas and dedicating himself totally to pure musical instinct. Originally, he'd hoped to explode the lingering idea that he was simply a blues-rock guitar player, but that's why Savage Times touches on everything from garage rock to punk to disco, hip-hop and even some unexpected solo-guitar self-portraiture. But on the way, he also exploded his own idea of what he could do- even maybe who he was, or would be.

Alison Krauss - Windy City (Capitol)

The most awarded female artist in Grammy history (27 awards including Album of the Year in 2009). Windy City is a beautifully curated collection of classic songs produced by Nashville veteran Buddy Cannon. While they span different eras and musical genres, there is a unifying sensibility. Some of the songs are familiar like Gentle On My Mind, a signature song of Glen Campbell's, and You Don't Know Me which was a hit for Eddy Arnold and Ray Charles. Others were lesser known, like Willie Nelson's I Never Cared For You and All Alone Am I, originally recorded by Brenda Lee.

Nikki Lane - Highway Queen (New West)

At the Bluebird on March 9th! Nikki Lane's remarkably dazzling third album sees the young Nashville rebel emerge as one of country and rock's most gifted songwriters. Produced by Lane and fellow singer-songwriter Jonathan Tyler, and recorded in Denton, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, its an emotional tour-de-force. Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage 60s country-pop swagger, Lane's new music will resonate as easily with Black Keys and Lana Del Rey fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty.

Jens Lekman - Life Will See You Now (Secretly Canadian)

Jens describes his new record playfully, but also honestly, as "a midlife-crisis disco album; it's an existentialist record, about seeing the consequences of your choices". It's a typical Lekman album in several ways: sly humour is key to its heartfelt nature; it inverts pop's writing norm by making songs with sad concerns sound happy and songs with a happy subject sound sad; and it plays with notions of identity and the self. It's the more expansive, upbeat sound of a revitalised Lekman, who is just one of many characters in his new stories about the magic and messiness of different kinds of relationships.

Mind Over Mirrors - Undying Color (Paradise of Bachelors)

The new album by the ever-evolving project of Jaime Fennelly is his most spellbinding set of roiling, meditative recordings to date, and the first to supplement his foundational arsenal of Indian pedal harmonium, analog synthesizers, and incantatory voices with a full ensemble, including Janet Bean (Eleventh Dream Day, Freakwater), Jim Becker (Califone, Iron & Wine), Haley Fohr (Circuit des Yeux), and Jon Mueller. Undying Color braids folk and formal, praise and play, within its heady swells and troughs, invoking American vernacular musical traditions and pulsating avant-garde electronics alike. With prayerful patience and ceremonial gravity, it conjures and celebrates the cyclical rhythms of nature: tidal surges, human breathing, cicadas in the wilderness gloaming.

London O'Connor - OA (True Panther)

London is a NY based self-produced songwriter from suburban Southern California. His debut album was created entirely from his backpack while living between apartments in NY. OA is based on the suburban upbringing he fled to NY from. Initially released on Soundcloud, the album garnered him international critical acclaim. London O'Connor's work is honest, inventive and spatial, ranging from expansive ambient renderings of his travels to more turbulent, focused pop statements about the unrest of domestic American life. OA represents a new type of musical project, birthed onto the internet and referential to a range of musicians from the likes of Earl Sweatshirt to early Beck in its genre-spanning explorations.

Matt Pryor - Memento Mori (Equal Vision)

Matt Pryor, former vocalist of the Get Up Kids, was "thinking a lot about death" while writing songs for his fifth solo album. Pryor had good reason to strike a dark tone on the gentle, spare 10-song set. During 2015 he lost his stepfather, his grandmother (the namesake for the closing track, "Virginia") and a 27-year-old family friend. Performing live at the Bishop on 3/18 w/ Dan Adriano of Alkaline Trio.

Son Volt - Notes of Blue (Transmit)

The 10 songs on Notes Of Blue are inspired by the spirit of the blues, but not the standard blues as most know it. The unique and haunting tunings of Mississippi Fred McDowell, Skip James and Nick Drake were all points of exploration for Farrar for the new collection. The album opens with country soul, followed by a song that could stand alongside the great Son Volt songs of their early albums. However, Notes Of Blue reflects the blues as it resides in the folk tradition, but heavily amplified. Primal stomps and frenetic guitars and raw slides exude grit and attitude. Conversely, other tracks seamlessly meld blues with hypnotic melodies that add a unique balance.

Strand of Oaks - Hard Love (Dead Oceans)

Tim Showalter's latest emanates an unabashed, raw, and manic energy that embodies both the songs and the songwriter behind them. "For me, there are always two forces at work: the side that's constantly on the hunt for the perfect song, and the side that's naked in the desert screaming at the moon. It's about finding a place where neither side is compromised, only elevated." Drawing from his love of Creation Records, Trojan dub compilations, and Jane's Addiction, and informed by a particularly wild time at Australia's Boogie Festival, he sought to create a record that would merge all of these influences while evoking something new and visceral.

Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Got Soul (Sony)

Pedal-steel virtuoso Robert Randolph returns. Got Soul takes stock of Randolph's past as a church musician as it pushes the band forward into new places. There is no shortage of originality on the album with songs that run the gamut from gospel numbers to deep, funky grooves to incendiary rock-and-soul jams. The hauntingly exquisite "Heaven's Calling" features Randolph on solo steel while guest vocalists Darius Rucker and Anthony Hamilton lend their golden voices to "Love Do What It Do" and "She Got Soul" respectively. "I Thank You," the 60s Sam & Dave R&B smash, is completely re-imagined in the hands of the Family Band and Snarky Puppy's very on Cory Henry.

Tash Sultana - Notion (Mom + Pop)

Tash Sultana is a young, dynamic Australian artist. She has made a name for herself busking on the streets of Melbourne and having homemade videos go viral getting millions of views online. Since having her hands wrapped around a guitar at the age of three, the self taught artist quickly developed her own unique style that has people lining up to see her perform live. Her vocal shines with a magical quality, she has a natural gift for melody and her virtuosic guitar playing is from another planet.
