Posted in: What's New | No Comments

YO LA TENGO – STUFF LIKE...

Stuff Like That There is a 14 song collection of covers, originals and reworking(s) that happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Yo La Tengo’s landmark 1990 album, Fakebook. Recorded with Gene Holder (The Feelies), Stuff Like That There as the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew augmented by the guitarist and former Yo La Tengo member Dave Schramm, with James negotiating the wonders of the upright bass for the first time. A video for their cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”, directed by Jason Woliner, may or may not prophecize a near apocalyptic event. This specific fearsome foursome — playing material from Stuff Like That There and maybe, possibly/probably (we really don’t dictate repertoire around here) ‘Fakebook’ will kick off a world tour in September to include Sept. 30th Toronto (Queen Elizabeth Theatre), Oct. 2nd Montréal (Corona Theatre), and Nov. 21st Vancouver (Commodore). On 1990’s Fakebook:  “This is Yo La Tengo laying out the vast ...

BIG SUGAR – CALLING ALL...

Big Sugar make a much anticipated return to form with a fully electric record; 10 soul selections with a rootical inflection. Big Sugar's new album "Calling All The Youth" encompasses what so many people love about Big Sugar: the mind altering dub of "Universal Vampire/All Aboard", the funky reggae party of  "Moving Up", heavy electric blues of  "Reckless and Dangerous" and the gospel tinged rock "Just Can't Leave You Alone" - a co-write with the Trews. Frontman Gordie Johnson explains, "The Nyabinghi drums, the dub reggae, the Detroit soul, the Texas blues - all of those things are coming together, sometimes in the same song. Not consciously. We acknowledge all the cultures that collide to make our music, so it just comes out the way.",

NATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATS

NATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE...

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats practically explodes with deep, primal and ecstatic soulfulness. You don’t just listen to this record—you experience it. So it’s fitting that the self‐titled album will bear the iconic logo of Stax Records, because at certain moments Rateliff seems to be channeling soul greats like Otis Redding and Sam & Dave. But as this gifted multi‐instrumentalist honors the legacy of the legendary Memphis label, he’s also setting out into audacious new territory. Rateliff & The Night Sweats already had the arrangements of the new songs down cold, having work‐shopped them on the road. When it came time to record, Rateliff chose producer Richard Swift, known primarily for his work with The Shins, Damien Jurado and Foxygen. Swift, whose specialty is capturing the intensity of live performances, honed the sound, allowing the studio itself to serve as an integral sonic component.

KIP MOORE – WILD ONES

KIP MOORE – WILD ONES

MULTI‐PLATINUM selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore's highly anticipated sophomore album, WILD ONES is inspired by the grit, grind and glamour of the live shows that have helped make him a country favourite! Each song on the 13‐track disc was born on the road during soundchecks, inside backstage dressing rooms, and in Moore’s bunk at night and recorded during "time off" from playing more than 200 shows a year. Often heralded for his live show, that mixes the wild desperation of Bruce Springsteen with the rootsy stomp of Merle Haggard and ranges somewhere between blue‐collar country music and stadium‐sized rock & roll, WILD ONES captures the feeling of a Kip Moore concert, ranging from poignant to anthemic.

POP EVIL – UP

Rock radio staples POP EVIL will release their all new album titled UP on Friday August 21, 2015.  Purposefully assembled at Studio Litho, Robert Land Studios and London Bridge Studios with producer Adam Kasper, UP is the sound of a rock band cementing a powerful identity that's steadily materialized over the course of three prior full length slabs. With their inspirational soon to be live favorite "Footsteps"    - POP EVIL prove their burgeoning success is not accident. UP is a bold reintroduction and step forward, with guitarists Nick Fuelling and Davey Grahs, bassist Matt Dirito, drummer Chachi Riot and Kakaty at the top of their game. It's always a bit of a cliche, not to mention questionalbe, when a band says that their new album is their best ever. In the case of POP EVIL, it's an absolute fact.
