King Buzzo

Gift Of Sacrifice [LP]

$21.98

New Vinyl: $21.98 Add to Cart

The Melvins’ King Buzzo has a new solo acoustic record called Gift of Sacrifice. This is exciting news!

What makes this news even more exciting is that King Buzzo has recorded this record with the fabulously talented bass player Trevor Dunn. Trevor was a founding member of Mr. Bungle and also plays bass in the psycho metal/spaghetti western band Fantômas, as well as recording and touring with the Melvins (as Melvins Lite).

The addition of Trevor’s stand-up bass makes Gift of Sacrifice a step up from King Buzzo’s last acoustic record, This Machine Kills Artists. It gives this new record a haunted quality which drives the songs to a new level. Another new element is the addition of modular synth, which adds its own angular sounds to the acoustic guitar and bass. This is an odd combination of sounds not heard before on an all acoustic record.

Bruce Hornsby is on a roll. After taking the music world by surprise with his wide-ranging, critically acclaimed 2019 album Absolute Zero, the singer, songwriter, composer and bandleader returns with a follow-up that picks up where its predecessor left off. Non-Secure Connection features 10 new songs exploring a broad range of themes, from civil rights to computer hackers, mall salesmen to the tribulations of youth basketball.

Hornsby plays piano, of course, but the songs on Non-Secure Connection also feature Hornsby’s electric sitar and Chamberlin, along with guitars, horns, strings and subtle samples from sources as varied as minimalist composer John Cage and Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand. Like Absolute Zero, Non-Secure Connection also features a wealth of collaborators: singer James Mercer of The Shins and Broken Bells, singer and poet Jamila Woods, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid, Bon Iver leader Justin Vernon and the late Leon Russell, who appears thanks to a demo that he and Hornsby recorded together more than 25 years ago.

MOJO [LP]

"Evann McIntosh is only 16 years old, but she's ready to take over the world. In a short time, the singer/songwriter has already built up a loyal fanbase and tons of buzz with her soulful and in-the-now take on modern pop and R&B sounds.
 
MOJO has been in the works since Evann first picked up a guitar at nine years old. She spent her childhood nights recording rough drafts of songs through a USB Yeti microphone in the living room after her family had gone to bed. It was when Evann met producer and now-frequent collaborator Jesty Beatz through Instagram that she figured out how to take her music out of the family room and into the world.

In McIntosh's words, MOJO is a fully realized expression of youthful perspective that breaks the mould of modern pop: "The whole album has feminine pronouns being used in the place of a love interest. I wanted to write those songs for the younger audiences to hear, because I think it should be normalized in the pop music you hear today.”

With a colorful and impressive debut album already to her name, all eyes are on McIntosh as she hits the studio to work on her next project."

Imagine a shoreline alone, carved from the continent, without land or water to border it,a rind of possibility, a moon-colored border between land and sea, knowing andunknowing. This is Conceptual Beach, a place John Rossiter, vocalist/guitarist of LosAngeles-based Young Jesus, describes as his long-time mental refuge, where heimagines himself living'like a medieval, stigmata-wrought hermit'all his needs forokay-ness finally met. Out this August on Saddle Creek, their new albumWelcome toConceptual Beachpries our sobs from parentheticals and wields them with a brutalbut tender force. They take these elements and translate them into a spacious groundfor growth, for ourselves, our communities, our world. They affirm that change startswith how we reckon with ourselves as individuals, that we are all magicians, as theclosing track suggests, 'making love and doing dishes,' capable of conjuring newworlds for ourselves, and to live in others'.

Kathleen Edwards

Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. In the late aughts, Kathleen Edwards' career was on the rise and her four studio albums had received critical acclaim; she garnered Polaris Prize nominations, a SOCAN Songwriting prize win, and several Juno nominations. But amid this success she stepped back from the music industry and started a coffee shop outside of Ottawa called Quitters, a successful small business she ran for over a decade. Now, she's releasing album number five, just as a global pandemic has forced her to shut down the coffee shop and furlough the workers who became like family. Total Freedom, self-produced alongside Jim Bryson and Grammy winner Ian Fitchuk, opens a door to her view of life as it is now, with all it's wonderful complications.

Candid [LP]

$20.98

New Vinyl: $20.98 Add to Cart

Following their acclaimed sophomore album Forever Turned Around, Whitney have returned with Candid, a 10-song collection boasting covers of artists like Kelela, David Byrne, John Denver, Labi Siffre, and more. Covers have always been an integral part of the band’s ethos, with renditions of classics by Allen Toussaint, Dolly Parton, and Neil Young a highlight of their setlists for half of a decade. But for Candid, Whitney decided to challenge themselves finding their favorite songs that also fell outside of musical comfort zone. Marking the first time the full touring band was in a recording studio together, they hashed out these covers after a tour over sessions in Chicago and Portland. “This could’ve been as simple as we really just love these songs and we love our bandmates and making a covers record just felt right but this was a bit of an exercise to see how we can evolve as a band going forward,” says drummer and singer Julien Ehrlich. He adds, “We didn’t want to beat these songwriters at their own game. Instead, we wanted to find songs that were great at their core and could be molded into our own thing.”

Eric Hilton
After 25 years as the cofounder/writer/producer of Washington D.C. downtempo group Thievery Corporation, Eric Hilton releases his first solo record. Infinite Everywhere, a triphop dreamscape of beautiful melodies and wistful instrumentals, is an exploration of inner space. While Thievery genre-hops across and within their albums, Hilton’s solo debut is distilled, focused, more personal. The title and concept is remarkably prescient, conveying melancholia and optimism in equal measures.

Caylee Hammack

Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a self-described “hippie in a hillbilly town” in her tiny hometown of Ellaville, Georgia. “I used to pray every night as a kid, ‘God, just please make me different. Don’t make me like everyone else,’” she remembers. Hammack is indeed refreshingly different. And at only 25, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out just a few months later, sleeping in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire. “My dad has always said that the most beautiful and strongest things are forged in the fire,” she says. “Iron is nothing until you work it in a fire. Glass cannot be blown without intense heat. You can’t make anything beautiful or strong without a little heat.”

Die Midwestern

$11.98

New CD: $11.98 Add to Cart

2020 release. Coming out of the eclectic Cincinnati music scene that has produced everyone from The National and Walk the Moon to Bootsy Collins, Arlo McKinley has washed his songs in the blood of street soul, country, punk and gospel - and tattooed them onto the underground. Filled with a weight, honesty and gritty-hope from rustbelt city life, McKinley rolled downriver to Memphis to Sun Studio where Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine) gathered a working man's all-star band to record his Oh Boy Records debut, Die Midwestern. McKinley's 10 original songs bleed truth and emotion from a heart scarred by wild nights and redeemed by Sunday morning confessions. "She's Always Around," "Suicidal Saturday Night," "Bag of Pills" and "Ghost" - a song he wrote in a funeral home parking lot after carrying the coffin of his best friend - are all songs carved out in the key of life. Filled with a hardscrabble spirit akin to the late, great Johnny Paycheck, McKinley is making a name for himself that blue-collar way - humbly stacking piles of soulful acoustic songs that hurt so good. Along the way, he has shared stages with kindred musical spirits John Moreland, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle, Lucero, and contemporaries Tyler Childers, Ian Noe, and Colter Wall.

Tanya Donelly & The Parkington Sisters

Teal Colored Vinyl, Single Pocket Jacket, Inner Sleeve, 1 LP, Includes Download Card, Callout Sticker. Tanya Donelly and the Parkington Sisters cover some of Tanya's favorite songs by The Go Go's, Leonard Cohen, Kirsty MacColl, Split Enz, Linda Ronstadt, The Pretenders, Wings, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Mary Margaret O'Hara on this outstanding new album. "When Joe from American Laundromat asked if I'd be interested in doing a covers album, I was hesitant, mainly because most of the songs I truly love are already perfect in their original form. But then I had the idea to ask the brilliant Parkington Sisters to be the band for this project, to bring their gorgeous sound and spirit, and make it something cohesive and centered. Happily, they said Yes. So I chose a handful of songs that have been on heavy rotation in my head and heart from the first time I heard them, and the Sisters took over. They charted and plotted and arranged, and I joined Rose and Sarah and Ariel recording at Jon Evans' Brick Hill Studio in Orleans MA, with guest players Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans (who also engineered). Lydia P put down some cello later, and I recorded additional vocals at Q Division Studios in Somerville MA, with James Bridges engineering. These are some of the most honest, moving, beautiful, unfiltered, true and cool songs that have ever been written, in my opinion. And those same adjectives apply to the Parkington Sisters as well." -Tanya
