JOHN CONGLETON – UNTIL THE HORROR GOES

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JOHN CONGLETON – UNTIL...

Until the Horror Goes, Grammy award-winning producer (St. Vincent, David Byrne, Explosions In the Sky etc) John Congleton’s debut full-length album as John Congleton and the Nighty Nite, is a howling, sardonic document of existential angst. Released April 1st, 2016 on Fat Possum Records, Until the Horror Goes, rows firmly against the placating currents of popular music. Crafting a genre of his own, Congleton creates a kind of horror-gospel mixing unflinching examinations of modern life with humor, high art with low culture. Pop melodies given voice by massive and unexpected orchestration live within wild sounds and atonality. Until the Horror Goes is a raw record compelled by an anxiety particular to our time and place, squarely out of fashion with the post-industrial morass of music conceived and created to sell a lifestyle. One is reminded of John Cale, whose angry, emphatic Fear debuted the week Rock Me Gently by Andy Kim, a saccharine soft-rock ballad, sat at the top of the charts. Like ...

YEASAYER – AMEN & GOODBYE

YEASAYER – AMEN &...

The fourth studio album from Brooklyn-based band Yeasayer, Amen & Goodbye, will be released on April 1, 2016. To visually interpret the album, Yeasayer collaborated with renowned sculptor David Altmejd (whose artwork is a major influence on the band) to create the gatefold artwork. The teasers released prior to album announcement contained some of the sculptures Altmejd created while listening to the band’s new album. This was a dream come true for the band and the full artwork is utterly spectacular. Amen & Goodbye is the follow up to 2012’s Fragrant World. Moving away from a digital-heavy approach, Yeasayer recorded Amen & Goodbye to tape at Outlier Inn Studio in upstate New York, then brought on board Joey Waronker (drummer - Atoms For Peace / Beck) to deconstruct everything to make the final document. Yeasayer offered a peek into the world of Amen & Goodbye with ‘I Am Chemistry’, the first track to be ...

JOE BONAMASSA – BLUES OF DEPRESSION

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JOE BONAMASSA – BLUES OF...

Blues of Desperation is Bonamassa’s most powerfully diverse and boldly realized album yet, with the material ranging from the gutsy, gritty blues call to arms of “This Train” (Joe’s guitar is set to “rude” throughout) to the elegant yet emotionally shattering ballad “What I’ve Known for a Very Long Time” to the soul-nourishing, acoustic-based Americana of “The Valley Runs Low,” on which Bonamassa’s voice rises up majestically to meet Barnes, McRae and Tippins in gospel-like rapture. And then there’s the bleary, tequila-soaked “Drive,” dripping with the kind of raw, wicked and unsettling sensuality that could make David Lynch green with envy. Throughout the record, Bonamassa’s epic guitar playing conjures up stirring benedictions and explosive exorcisms of sound. “No Good Place For the Lonely” features some of the guitarist’s most cauterizing licks yet, and the walloping title track is a white-knuckled, six-string thrill ride guaranteed to jolt the senses. Guitar fans everywhere (like those who recently voted Bonamassa ...

2 CHAINZ & LITTLE WAYNE – COLLEGROVE

2 CHAINZ & LITTLE WAYNE &...

While 2 Chainz has become one of the most reliably entertaining personalities in the pop‐rap orbit, Lil’ Wayne remains a trickster extraordinaire and rap myth made flesh. A portmanteau of the neighborhoods where they grew up (Chainz in College Park, just outside Atlanta; Wayne in Hollygrove, New Orleans), Collegrove is an inspired pairing, from the quiet menace of “Gotta Lotta” (produced by Cash Money legend Mannie Fresh) to the mentholated reggae of “MFN” (produced by Atlantans Mike Will Made‐It and Zaytoven) and the sprawling “Rolls Royce Weather Every Day,” where Wayne issues a rare apology: “I do me and love it, Lord I done overdid it.”

IGGY POP – POST POP DEPRESSION

IGGY POP – POST POP...

In some ways, “Post Pop Depression” also picks up where “Lust for Life” left off. “Where those records pointed, it stopped,” Mr. Homme said. “But without copying it,” he continued, “that direction actually goes for miles. And when you keep going for miles you can’t see these two records any more.” – NY Times Article Later, at a separate interview at Mr. Homme’s Pink Duck studio in Burbank — surrounded by odd‐brand guitars and amplifiers and his grandmother’s paintings — Mr. Homme was more laudatory about Mr. Pop. “He is the last one of the one‐of‐a‐kinds,” he said. “This is a much deserved victory lap for a man who’s not sure if he won. But he did. He may have tunneled underground for lots of that, but he still got to the destination.” – NY Times article The first Iggy Pop album co‐created with producer/guitarist/songwriter/multi‐instrumentalist/bandleader Homme, Post Pop Depression began with a succinctly worded text from Iggy to ...
