New Release Round-Up 10-21-14

Cold War Kids - Hold My Home

Looking ahead to next week's chart, we are excited to present an Early Listen for Hold My Home, the fifth studio album from American indie rock band Cold War Kids which comes just a year after 2013's Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. The record was produced by guitarist Dan Gallucci alongside Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta and Juliette Lewis) at the band's own studio in San Jose, California. The album is available now and you can watch the video for the lead single All This Could Be Yours here.




Bush - Man On The RunMarking 20 years since their multi-platinum debut Sixteen Stone catapulted them to megastardom, Man On The Run, the sixth studio album from the British alternative rockers Bush is the follow-up to 2011's The Sea of Memories and the second to feature the new lineup which frontman Gavin Rossdale formed in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Mastodon) and Jay Baumgardner (Helmet, Lacuna Coil), the album sees the quartet continue with their patented heavy, dark, melancholic grunge rock sound. The album is available now and you can watch the visually stunning video for the lead single The Only Way Out here.



On NostalgiaAnnie Lennox pays tribute to some of the greatest artists of the 20th century – including Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – and interprets compositions that have moved her, stripping them down to their emotional and musical core and making them her own. "To have been given the opportunity to record these classic, timeless songs on such a significant label as Blue Note, representing 75 years of legendary jazz history, is truly a privilege for me," said Annie Lennox.

The definitive Primus line-up Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and releasing their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, Primus & the Chocolate Factory. 'The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film,' says Les Claypool. 'The notion wasn't so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books.'

Tough Love is the second album from English singer Jessie Ware. The London-based artist began work on the album at the start of 2014, with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Kid Harpoon, Julio Bashmore, and production duo Benzel all credited on the record. Her title track single was debuted as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record on the Earth, and went on to reach the U.K. Top 40.

Sleater-Kinney - Start TogetherSleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist, left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest. Start Together is a deluxe box set compiling all seven of Sleater-Kinney's critically-acclaimed albums, plus a 44-page hardcover book and an art print. Each LP is on a different color of vinyl, and this box is the only way to get these albums on colored vinyl. Each album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.  The Limited Edition box set is available now and you can also grab copies of the individual albums which are available as remastered CD and Vinyl versions. Check out this video to see more info on the releases.

Plus there are other great, new releases including The Bsst Day, from Thurston Moore.  The fourth full-length solo release for the Sonic Youth guitarist/singer sees the return to guitar rock with backing from Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe, and James Sedward. Hip Hop megastar T.I. drops his ninth studio album Paperwork. London based Bear's Den release their much anticipated debut album Islands.  Wallflower is a collection of songs from the late 60's to present day that inspired Diana Krall in her early years. Kiesza releases her debut album, Sound Of A Woman.  Her hit single Hideaway rocketed to the #1 spot in the UK charts earlier this year and remains the fastest-selling debut of year. When Sunn O))) first approached Scott Walker about appearing on their 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, they didn't know what it would actually lead to. Four years on, Scott returned with something even more enticing, collaborating on Soused, a body of work he was writing with them in mind. And the masked Iowan nu-metal heroes Slipknot return with their fifth studio album 5: The Gray Chapter, their first in six years and the follow-up to 2008's All Hope Is Gone. It is the first to feature their new (and as yet anonymous) rhythm section, following the departure of drummer Joey Jordison and the untimely death of bassist Paul Gray. Marking a return to a more raw, brutal, dissonant sound reminiscent of their earlier work, the album includes the singles "The Negative One" and "The Devil in I."

Hungry Ghosts is the fourth record from American alt-rock quartet OK Go.

This year has been the best of my entire life, which is not to say it hasn't come with its fair share of hurdles, heartbreak, and harsh lessons, she says. I can only write about the experiences I've had. I signed to a major label. I went through a break-up. I figured out how to be an independent person. I have been terrifyingly honest to the public about traumatic events in my life. I met the woman of my dreams.

This album is inspired by the depth of all of that love, and the journey that it takes to get there.

New CD: $12.98
Digital: $9.99
Video
If there's a pedigree for a modern conutry music star, then Angaleena Presley fits all of the criteria: a coal miner's daughter; native of Beauty, Kentucky; a direct descendent of the original feuding McCoys; a one-time single mother; a graduate of both the school of hard knocks and college; a former cashier at both Wal-Mart and Winn-Dixie. Perhaps best of all the member of Platinum-selling Pistol Annies (with Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe) says she "doesn't know how to tell the truth."
Federico Aubele - Gran Hotel Buenos Aires Federico Aubele - Gran Hotel Buenos Aires
New CD: $12.98
Digital: $9.99
Young Argentine guitarist Federico Aubele became transfixed with the music of Astor Piazzolla even as he listened to the cool lounge sounds of Thievery Corporation and the Six Degrees label. Incredibly, he put these influences together for an exceptional debut album entitled 'Gran Hotel Buenos Aires'. It's produced by the Thievery guys, but one gets the sense that this really came from Aubele. He surrounds his downtempo beats delicate acoustic guitar figures, an array of sexy women singers (all vocals are in Spanish), and a rich tapestry of sounds and tones. Pushing flamenco and various styles of Latin music to the fore, he also draws upon dub and ambient, and it's the grace of this hip fusion that puts Aubelle up there with such genre benders as Manu Chao and the Gotan Project. Highlights include the upbeat 'Ante Tus Ojos' and the rich Latin groove 'Esta Noche', but the album is strong from beginning to finish. A truly impressive first effort.

Little Big League - Tropical Jinx Little Big League - Tropical Jinx
New CD: $10.98
From the very start of Little Big League s LP Tropical Jinx, it s clear that there is nothing little about the band or their second full-length album.

The brutally honest lyrics of guitarist/vocalist Michelle Zauner are one of the album s undeniable high points: The confessions and confrontations about dealing with family life, relationships and personal failures are both relatable and cathartic. Little Big League have created something special on Tropical Jinx.

For the past eight years the duo of Rob Lowe and Michael Muller have nurtured and refined their creative partnership as the core members of the band Balmorhea.

With no label, distributor, manager, publicist, or booking agent the duo quietly self-released their first recordings and started playing live shows.

New CD: $14.98
Four days before New York noise musician Margaret Chardiet was supposed leave for her first European tour as Pharmakon, she had a medical emergency which resulted in a major surgery. Suddenly, instead of getting on a plane, she was bedridden for three weeks, missing an organ. "After seeing internal photographs taken during the surgery, I became hyperaware of the complex network of systems just beneath the skin, any of which were liable to fail or falter at any time," Chardiet said. "It all happened so fast and unexpectedly that my mind took a while to catch up to the reality of my recovery. I felt a widening divide between my physical and mental self. It was as though my body had betrayed me, acting as a separate entity from my consciousness."

These devils from Downunder brought the pain, hate & frustration that stokes my fire. Check it out below and while you subject yourself here's what they had to say about their band. "The Craw was formed a while ago, released some demos, split CD and 7", played a bunch of gigs and a couple of small tours. One guitarist was kicked out for being useless and unreliable. The band decided to change the name as both sound and lyrical content were refined. The new incarnation became Ex-Craw and began as a 3-piece with Oli on Drums, Shane on Bass and Billy on Guitar. We all did vocals. The first demo we recorded was the Extinct songs in 2011, which was recorded by Grobi who joined the band soon after on guitar. We continued until 2013 and recorded the Extant songs, soon after deciding to call the band quits after further lineup issues." They also gave me a shorter version for those with short attention spans. "...just another punk band with a passion for fast thrash and social commentary. We have all played in other insignificant punk bands, not worth a mention."
