SERENA RYDER – UTOPIA

Just for the record, you could easily be staring a Serena Ryder triple album in the face right now. It might have taken four‐and‐a‐half years for this celebrated Toronto singer/songwriter to gift us with a follow‐up to 2012’s expectation‐defying critical and commercial hit, Harmony, but a lack of new material was definitely not the hold‐up. No, just as she did for the last record, the prolific Ryder amassed something like 65 or 70 songs during the run‐up to her star‐solidifying new platter, Utopia. The challenge wasn’t coming up with new material; the challenge was whittling it all down to fit an album‐sized package. Ryder was so flush with good stuff heading into Utopia, in fact, that she briefly toyed with releasing her own equivalent of the Clash’s Sandinista! or George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass – a triple LP composed of songs that she envisioned divided amongst moods of “light,” “dark” and the “grey” area in between.

RASCAL FLATTS – BACK TO...

ACM Awards Vocal Group of the Year nominee RASCAL FLATTS release their highly‐anticipated tenth studio album  BACK TO US (Big Machine Records) on May 19th. The collection is reminiscent of the trio’s distinct sound that catapulted their status as international superstars, while maintaining an edge that has kept them at the forefront of the genre. Twelve of this 13‐track Deluxe were produced by the group – with bassist Jay DeMarcus taking the reigns – the album explores the powerful emotions of relationships with songwriting credits from the trio throughout, adding a personal depth to the release. The album is stacked with multiple standout moments, including the vocally‐driven collaboration with Lauren Alaina “Are You Happy Now,” songwriting prowess of friends Dan + Shay alongside Cary Barlowe and Jesse Frasure for the optimistically upbeat “Hopin’ You Were Lookin’” and Chris Stapleton, joined by Luke Laird, for the effervescent “Vandalized.” “Hands Talk” also welcomes red‐hot producer busbee, who co‐wrote and produced the track ...

PAPA ROACH – CROOKED...

Papa Roach have never taken the easy way out and they aren’t going to start now. Over the past two decades the group have established themselves as true trendsetters in heavy music: They’ve been nominated for two Grammys, toured the globe with everyone from Eminem to Marilyn Manson and crafted the nü metal anthem “Last Resort,” which is still in heavy rotation on rock radio seventeen years after its release. However the group’s tenth full-length Crooked Teeth sees the band returning to their humble—and hungry—roots. The album was recorded in a cramped West Hollywood studio with up-andcoming producers Nicholas “RAS” Furlong and Colin Brittain, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired them to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably frontman Jacoby Shaddix’s remarkable rapping technique. “We’ve always kind of considered ourselves to be the bastard cousins of everything we’ve every been involved with so we wanted to be true to ...

MISTERWIVES – CONNECT...

MisterWives are an indie pop band based in New York City. Formed in 2012 around the core trio of singer/keyboardist Mandy Lee, bassist William Hehir, and drummer Etienne Bowler, they have an unusual sound that combines elements of synth pop, folk, and indie rock, falling somewhere between the quirky dance‐pop of No Doubt and the pastoral folk‐rock of Of Monsters and Men. After adding guitarist Marc Campbell and multi‐instrumentalist Dr. Blum, the group began recording its debut EP, Reflections, which was released on New York indie Photo Finish Records in early 2014. With just one EP and some demos to their name, MisterWives have garnered much buzz among major music publications like Interview, Paste, and MTV Buzzworthy. Their debut LP Our Own House was released in February 2015.
