New Release Round-Up 09-04-15

New Releases - Friday 04 September 2015 


THE ARCS - Yours, Dreamily, - Nonesuch
The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, is released on Nonesuch Records. In anticipation of the release, “Stay in My Corner” was premiered on June 9 at NPR Music. Of the song, NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson praises, “…it's got a slinky, timeless feel, propelled with alluring ease by Auerbach's falsetto and a lush instrumental backdrop befitting The Arcs' roster.” The Arcs collaboratively wrote and recorded 13 tracks for Yours, Dreamily, with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally. Co-produced by Auerbach and Michels, the album was recorded in roughly two weeks through spontaneous, informal sessions across the country at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, the Diamond Mine in Queens, Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and in a lounge room at Electric Lady in Manhattan. Tchad Blake mixed the album on his horse farm in Wales.  

IRON MAIDEN - The Book Of Souls - BMG Recorded Music
The Book Of Souls is the band's 16th studio album since their eponymous debut in 1980 charted at #4 in the UK, in a career achieving sales of over 90 million albums worldwide. Their previous album, 2010's The Final Frontier was Iron Maiden's most successful chart-wise to date, reaching Number One in 28 countries and was their highest chart debut in the U.S reaching #4 in the Billboard 200.

YOUNG EMPIRES - The Gates

YOUNG EMPIRES - The GatesYOUNG EMPIRES - The Gates - VotivYOUNG EMPIRES - The Gates
Young Empires first formed in Toronto in 2009, but only now are releasing their first full-length album, The Gates. A triumphant tour de force, the stunning debut deftly delivers chant-worthy choruses and weaves together head bobbing beatcraft and avant-pop melodies with gospel vibes, hip-hop savvy, and a modernist Motown feel that takes only one listen to be forever etched in your brain.

BEN FOLDS - So There

BEN FOLDS - So ThereBEN FOLDS - So There - New West RecordsBEN FOLDS - So There
Ben Folds takes a turn on his forthcoming album, So There, available September 11th. He embraces strings and chamber music yet still maintains a passion for his love of pop. So There consists of eight chamber pop songs with the very talented yMusic Ensemble and a 21 minute piano concerto performed with the Nashville Symphony. Ben Folds meeting and recording with yMusic became the bridge between the classically themed concerto and the contemporary chamber rock songs that live in harmony on So There. The combination is an inspired body of work on both small and grand scales.

Music Releases 08-28-15

Beach House - Depression Cherry Beach House - Depression Cherry
New CD: $13.98
Beach House is Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally. We have been a band for over a decade, living and working in Baltimore, MD. Depression Cherry is our 5th full-length record. This record follows the release of our self-titled album in 2006, Devotion in 2008, Teen Dream in 2010 and Bloom in 2012. Depression Cherry was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana from November ’14 through January ’15. This time period crossed the anniversaries of both John Lennon’s and Roy Orbison’s death. In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role.
Foals - What Went Down Foals - What Went Down
New CD: $13.98
All of the truly transformative and era-defining albums have grappled with questions that are a world away from the bland bleatings of homogenized pop. Permanence and impermanence, life and death, solitude, vulnerability, intimacy, passion, rage, humanity - weighty issues that make demands of the people creating that music, and of all those who listen to it, too. What Went Down confronts these issues head-on.
Mad Season - Live At The Moore [Vinyl] Mad Season - Live At The Moore [Vinyl]
New Vinyl: $36.98
Originally released on Columbia as a home video on August 29, 1995, Mad Season: Live at The Moore will be available in a collectible 2LP 12" gatefold package with new liner notes penned by Mad Season drummer Barrett Martin especially for this 20th anniversary edition. The 2LP edition of Mad Season: Live at The Moore features live versions of "River Of Deceit," "Wake Up," a blistering cover of John Lennon's "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier" and more.
Yo La Tengo - Stuff Like That There Yo La Tengo - Stuff Like That There
New CD: $14.98
Rare is the band that can cover themselves. Rarer is the band that would even think of it and rarer still is a band that would return to the conception and re-imagine its first breakthrough record. Someone may have read recently that old quote about how “in not knowing history one is doomed to repeat it.” There’s not another band that I know that is less doomed than Yo La Tengo. As stated previously, the album features covers from bands other than themselves: The Cure, Hank Williams, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more. Stuff Like That There, a 14 song collection of covers, originals and reworking(s) happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Yo La Tengo’s landmark 1990 album, Fakebook.
Atlas Genius - Inanimate Objects Atlas Genius - Inanimate Objects
New CD: $13.98
Warner Brothers Records release Inanimate Objects, the new album from Atlas Genius. "Molecules," the euphoric first single, is available now.

Written entirely between midnight and four in the morning, twelvefour is a concept record that explores the theory that an artist’s creative peak lays within these hours. The Paper Kites’ music has been featured on numerous television shows including ABC’s Forever and Grey’s Anatomy, as well as The CW’s Reign.

Most importantly, their fifth full-length album, Dark Night Sweet Light debuted at #1 on Australia’s ARIA album chart. Dark Night Sweet Light is a proper introduction to a worldwide audience (out August 28 via Nettwerk).
Steep Canyon Rangers - Radio Steep Canyon Rangers - Radio
New CD: $15.98

Halsey - Badlands Halsey - Badlands
New CD: $10.99
Motorhead - Bad Magic Motorhead - Bad Magic
New CD: $17.98   $16.98
Bristling with thunderous attitude, and some of the fiercest rhythms and riffs that’ll assault your ears this year, Bad Magic demands that you fall to your knees and pray heartily that your senses don’t get completely pulverized, because big-rig head crushers like the totemic and Motöranthemic “Thunder And Lightning” show that Motörhead are as strong, mean, loud, relentless, uncompromising and goddam heavy as ever.
Andra Day - Cheers To The Fall Andra Day - Cheers To The Fall
New CD: $13.98
Cheers To The Fall, Andra's debut album, is what she calls "a biography told in the form of soul music." The 13 tracks see her exploring relationships with both others and herself, grappling with past mistakes but ultimately finding forgiveness and truth.
The Weeknd - Beauty Behind The Madness The Weeknd - Beauty Behind The Madness
New CD: $13.99

Defeater - Abandoned Defeater - Abandoned
New CD: $15.98
Boston’s most devoted and steadfast hardcore band, Defeater knows what it takes to remain credible in a scene where fans demand both unapologetic, in-your-face power and intense emotional honesty. For Defeater and their die-hard fans, this honesty is key, and with their Epitaph debut Abandoned, Derek Archambault (vocals) and fellow band members have created their masterpiece.
Ahab - The Boats Of The Glen Carrig Ahab - The Boats Of The Glen Carrig
New CD: $16.98
German nautic doomers Ahab have not only created their very own subgenre, they are also incomparable dabblers in solemn melancholy! The Boats of the Glen Carrig is a novel by William Hope Hodgson from 1907 that tells the gruesome story of survival after shipwreck: the ice-cold embrace of the sea this as always has been turned to molten lead in the utmost atmospheric manner by Ahab! Since the band's founding in late 2004, the four-piece has continuously worked its way to the top of (funeral) doom. The Boats of the Glen Carrig is their magnum opus and is gracefully nestled in between slow-motion anthems and haunting melodies.
I See Stars - Phases I See Stars - Phases

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats - The Night Creeper Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats - The Night Creeper
New CD: $13.98
The Night Creeper is the new album by Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. Contained within are ten tracks of the type of sonic psyche-frazzling heaviness and blood-drenched pop that have made Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats one of Britain’s great cult bands. Recorded at Toe Rag studios in early 2015 with engineer Liam Watson (White Stripes, Tame Impala, Electric Wizard), their fourth opus The Night Creeper finds the quartet in full-on death-tripping, third eye-widening mode. Here songs ooze louche evil over flesh-melting riffs that creep like hot magma bubbling up through the earth’s crust at their own malevolent pace. This album is in no hurry to destroy you. But it will. It will.
