    Death Cab For Cutie

    Thank You For Today

      Atlantic Records’ 8x Grammy® award nominated band ‘Death Cab for Cutie’ has officially announced the release of their upcoming ninth studio album. 

      The band will celebrate their new album with a much anticipated fall tour which will span intimate venues and theatres across North America and begins on September 24th at Eugene, OR’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts. Meanwhile, Death Cab for Cutie are currently poised to embark on a limited series of sold-out international summer live dates, including headline shows in Amstelveen, NL and London – the latter set for June 18th as part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre.

      Thank You for Today is the sound of Death Cab for Cutie both expanding and refining; a band twenty years into its evolution, still uncovering new curves in its signatures, new sonic corners to explore. The Seattle band’s ninth studio album, recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rich Costey in late 2017 and early 2018, stands alongside classic Death Cab for Cutie albums including their 1998 debut Something About Airplanes and 2003’s masterful Transatlanticism as a definitive collection - ten tracks that are by turns beautiful and dynamic and darkly anthemic and bittersweet.

      22 year-old South London artist Matt Maltese today released Bad Contestant, his long awaited debut record via Atlantic Records. The record, a culmination of 12 days spent in Foxygen instigator Jonathan Rado’s Los Angeles studio and many hours of sessions with Londoner Alex Burey, displays a no-less-than stunning leap forward in songwriting confidence from the already critically acclaimed young musician.

      Credited with steering the lush sounding debut albums from Whitney, Weyes Blood and the Lemon Twigs, as well as Father John Misty’s critically acclaimed new album God’s Favourite Customer, Jonathan Rado has helped drench the record with Californian atmospherics, drawing out Matt’s sweetly drifting vocals over a swell of jubilant guitars, brass and drums. Featuring reworked versions of fan favourites and previous singles ‘Strange Time’ and ‘As The World Caves In’ amongst nine beautiful new tracks, Bad Contestant is a grand coming-of-age album packed with Matt’s typically complex, witty melancholy and uplifting melodies.

      British but born to Canadian parents, and a focal point of the vibrant South London scene which includes Shame, HMLTD and Goat Girl to name but a few, Matt Maltese’s acerbic, witty songwriting has won admiring glances on both sides of the Atlantic around the release of Bad Contestant. The record has received rave reviews with four stars coming from CLASH, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, NME, and Q, and five from DIY. NPR crowned Bad Contestant “love songs for the end of the world”, and Noisey labelled Matt a teenage Jarvis Cocker, “if he’d spent more time at The Windmill pub in Brixton and was in a better mood.” While Wonderland said “the songs twinkle with sincerity and hopefulness” just as Another Man lauded the record’s “to-the-bone depictions of young life.”

      Fresh from his biggest headline show to date at London’s Scala, which saw Matt’s band fleshed out to six members including two backing vocalists, and a gloriously debonair ‘70s lounge stage set - he further highlighted the joyful and knowing pathos that skewers the entire record to a packed-out room. 


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: The superb Matt Maltese brings the languid, symphonic indie vibes for his newest album, sounding like a mix between the dulcet drawl and synthy bliss of John Grant and the nuanced indie stomp and chord progressions of Ariel Pink, Maltese has yet ANOTHER killer LP on his hands, and now it can be in your hands too. Superb.

      Otis Redding

      (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay

      “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” will be released as a 7” single on gold vinyl to mark the golden anniversary of 50 years since the single’s release. The track continues to transcend generations, holding the distinction of being one of a handful of songs from the ‘60s to have over 100 million streams on Spotify.
      A detailed reproduction of the original mono single, it features the B-Side “Sweet Lorene,” is branded as a Volt release, and comes in a die-cut sleeve like those used by Atlantic Records, which was distributed Stax/Volt Records at the time.
      This single includes the rare, original version of the song, which is shorter and with Redding’s vocals noticeably lower in the mix. This original version was quickly pulled after a brief release and replaced with the version that the world has known ever since. This anniversary 7-inch marks the first time the original version has appeared on vinyl since the initial release in 1968.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Millie says: Otis Redding bringing us this upbeat spectacular seven inch featuring the legendary (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay which is rightly pressed on gold coloured vinyl! Paired with this is the single “Sweet Lorene” which provides all your funk and soul needs.

      Los Angeles, CA’s Weezer will release their eleventh album, Pacific Daydream on Crush Music/Atlantic Records. Produced by Butch Walker, Pacific Daydream is the follow up to the critically acclaimed album Weezer (The White Album), which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album at the end of last year.

      Following the release of Weezer (The White Album), the band began working on what they called “The Black Album,” but as they worked, they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world. Instead of forcing a different direction, they began an entirely new album; Pacific Daydream was born.

      The War On Drugs

      A Deeper Understanding

      The War On Drugs announce their fourth full-length album, A Deeper Understanding, out August 25th on Atlantic Records. A Deeper Understanding is the band’s first album since 2014’s universally acclaimed Lost In The Dream, and their debut album with Atlantic. Following the Record Store Day release of the 11-minute “Thinking of a Place,” The War On Drugs present the album’s lead single, “Holding On.”

      For much of the three and a half year period since the release of Lost In The Dream, The War On Drugs’ frontman, Adam Granduciel, led the charge for his Philadelphia-based sextet as he holed up in studios in New York and Los Angeles to write, record, edit, and tinker—but, above all, to busy himself in work. Teaming up with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), Granduciel challenged the notion of what it means to create a fully realized piece of music in today’s modern landscape. Calling on his bandmates – bassist Dave Hartley, keyboarding Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez -- continuously throughout the process, the result is a “band record” in the noblest sense, featuring collaboration, coordination, and confidence at every turn. Through those years of relocation, the revisiting and re-examining of endless hours of recordings, unbridled exploration and exuberance, Granduciel’s gritty love of his craft succeeded in pushing the band to great heights. 


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Andy says: Adam Granduciel and co. exploded into our hearts with the peerless ‘Lost In The Dream’, three years ago. Taking classic 70s rock (particularly of a Dylan vintage) and somehow making it modern, here was a band for right across the ages, a band to truly believe in. They returned, this year (on Record Store Day!) with their magnum opus, and it was immediately apparent that with "Thinking Of A Place", they had, incredibly upped the ante. Here was 11 massive minutes of bliss and wonder. High summer and the album dropped: ‘LITD’ part two, or squared, if you like. The songs were huge (in every way) but the production was out of this world. This was sun-roof down, beers in the back, cruise control, heart-rending, shimmering classic rock. But, crucially, with a drum machine! Everything we could have hoped for in a follow-up to a modern classic.

      Grammy-winning band Phoenix are thrilled to announce their new album, Ti Amo, via Loyaute/Glassnote/Atlantic Records. The band - comprised of Thomas Mars (vocals), Laurent Brancowitz (guitar), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Deck D’Arcy (bass) - detailed creating the album to the New York Times earlier this week, who called it “the band’s most unabashedly romantic record yet.

      Ti Amo is Phoenix’s first album since 2013’s critically lauded Bankrupt!. Produced by the band and recorded at La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris) with the help of long-time collaborator Pierrick Devin, Ti Amo is - in the band’s own words – an album about simple pure emotions: love, desire, lust and innocence, it’s also a record about their European, latin roots, a fantasized version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), juke-boxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroiani, fearless desire and Antique marble statues.

        THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2017 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.





        '99 Cents' explores the commercial nature of our world and the ways in which we package ourselves and our lives for consumption. Santigold commented - “We have no illusion that we don’t live in this world where everything is packaged. People’s lives, persona, everything, is deliberate, and mediated. It can be dark and haunting and tricky, and freak us out, but it can be also be silly and fun and we can learn to play with it.” She also explores our fascination with perfection and our inherent inability to attain it. The use of playful satire, social critique, and self-examination to explore these themes is reflected in the album’s cover art; a collaboration with photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi, that finds Santigold blister-packed amongst her cluttered possessions ready for the store shelves.

        On '99 Cents', Santigold wanted to explore new corners of her sound and different ways to convey her vision and political commentary. She worked with long-time collaborators John Hill, Dave Sitek, and Doc McKinney and collaborated with artists she hadn’t worked with previously, including Patrik Berger, Vampire Weekend’s RostamBatmanglij, Hit Boy, Justin Raisen, BC, ILOVEMAKONNEN, and Sam Dew. The result is the bright and big sound of '99 Cents' that takes the genre-defying fearlessness Santigold has become known for to new places.


        The Velvet Underground

        Loaded: Re-Loaded - 45th Anniversary Edition Deluxe 5CD/1DVD Boxset

          One of the greatest albums of all time, Velvet Underground’s Loaded will return as a six-disc collection that includes:

          - The original album remastered in both stereo and mono
          - A generous selection of demos, early versions and alternate mixes from that era
          - A newly remastered/re-edited version of Live At Max’s Kansas City
          - Two high resolution mixes, plus a surround sound mix in DTS and Dolby Digital
          - An unreleased May 1970 concert recorded in Philadelphia

          Remastered stereo and mono versions of the album fill out the first two discs, along with various outtakes, and the mono mix for the unissued single: “Rock & Roll” b/w “Lonesome Cowboy Bill.” The third disc explores the creative process behind many of the songs on the album with more than 20 demos, early versions and alternate mixes.

          Fans will be excited to hear the unreleased club performance featured on the fifth disc. It was recorded on May 9, 1970 at the Second Fret in Philadelphia by Bob Kachnycz, a fan who hitchhiked to the show and recorded it on reel-to-reel. The band was down to a trio that night: Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and Doug Yule, who alternated between bass and drums to fill in for Moe Tucker, who was pregnant at the time. Loaded, which came out six months after the show, is well represented with seven songs, including: “Cool It Down,” “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” and “Sweet Jane.”

          The final disc is an audio only DVD that features three different mixes of Loaded.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Andy says: The VU's final album (we are NOT counting "Squeeze"!) gets the box set treatment and what a delight it is. You could get lost in here for days. And it would be time well spent!

          Kwabs’ hugely-anticipated debut album 'Love + War' is released on Atlantic Records. Having been tipped by - among others - the respected BBC Sound Poll 2015, Kwabs has spent this year perfecting his debut offering; harnessing the emotional ups and downs of a less-than-conventional route to where he is today, resulting in an open-hearted record, full of soaring confessional soul. Recently revealed new tracks 'Look Over Your Shoulder' and 'Forgiven' are perfect examples of his stunning vocals and delicately-crafted lyrics, highlighting the breadth and originality of his debut.

          Atlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie release their much-anticipated eighth studio album.

          'Kintsugi' marks their first new album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla. Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them. As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an object’s history. “Considering what we were going through internally, and with what a lot of the lyrics are about, it had a great deal of resonance for us – the idea of figuring out how to repair breaks and make them a thing of beauty,” says bassist Nick Harmer, who suggested the name to singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard and drummer Jason McGerr. “Philosophically, spiritually, emotionally, it seems perfect for this group of songs.”

                  The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group’s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of “Good Times Bad Times,” on through to “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Communication Breakdown,” and “Dazed And Confused,” the album introduced the band’s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape.

                  The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of “Dazed And Confused,” as well as “Heartbreaker” and “Moby Dick,” which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.

                  Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.

                  The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”

                  The band wrote and recorded nearly all of Led Zeppelin II while touring relentlessly to support its debut album. Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969. Led Zeppelin II features some of the band’s most beloved tracks including “Ramble On” and “Heartbreaker” as well as “Whole Lotta Love,” considered by many to be one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time.

                  The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band’s recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to “Thank You” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman),” and the previously unreleased track “La La.”

                    Led Zeppelin

                    III - Super Deluxe Remastered Edition

                      Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum. 

                      The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”

                        Joy Formidable

                        Cholla

                          The Joy Formidable return with their first release from new album ‘Wolf’s Law’ on October 15th. As NME noted prior to their first UK shows of 2012 at packed NME / Radio One Stages at Reading and Leeds Festivals on hearing sneak previews of the new songs, ‘Wolf’s Law’ ‘could well see them become the next big British guitar band’.

                          The finished album, for which ‘Cholla’ is the perfect calling card, takes the band’s already acknowledged mastery of melody and dynamic to another level, achieving the band’s aim at its inception ‘to keep the sense that everything is possible.’

                          Drank Up All The Wine Last Night / Venus Blues

                          Two of the finest examples of belting barrelhouse jumpin’ blues at their very best and finally available on a 45 format. "Drank Up All The Wine Last Night" is another classic to add to the 'drunk R&B' sub-section.

                          The hotly-tipped Santogold precedes here self-titled debut CD with new single "LES Artistes". Originally the B-side of her debut 12" on Downtown, this catchy pop track now gets A-side billing. "LES Artistes" artists sounds just like it's been taken from a 1980s Brat pack film (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off etc), and is possibly actually by The Bangles or The B-52s. Yep, it's one of those US electrorock'n'roll chuggers with a big sing-along chorus! On the flipside of the 45 we have "Your Voice", a super-sweet lovers reggae track that comes across like Altered Images In Dub!

Co-produced by Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and Nitin Sawnhey, "Searching For The Hows And Whys" is the follow up to the twenty one year old's 2006 debut album "The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager" which was a massive hit with fans and critics alike.

                          "Lupe Fiasco's The Cool" - a largely conceptual tour-de-force - is the stunning new album by Chicago native, Lupe Fiasco. It includes the club smash "Dumb It Down" and "Superstar", the first single to be taken from the album. This second long player from the Chicago native shows that "Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor" was no one-off. Lupe once again possesses an array of head-spinning wordplay and a topical range more akin to the underground than the mainstream. "Lupe Fiasco's The Cool" proves that talent can still make waves in the rap game.

                          Switches continue their ascent with this forthcoming Southend stomper of a single, "Lay Down The Law". The band have spent the last three months building their collective armoury and sharpening their shows with gigs here, there and everywhere. They now exit the starting blocks faster than a steroid influenced sprinter with this, a brand new Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith) produced version of the demo track that was originally released on 7" only in Autumn last year.

It also contains some of the most visually arresting artwork to grace a musical release in recent times. In keeping with the tone of the rest of their work the band have eschewed hiding behind computer trickery and all other mod cons and chosen to work with a real human being, a pen and a pad of paper.

                          Jet

                          Shine On

                          Hanging out with the Gallagher brothers has definitely rubbed off on Jet, as this title track from their second album proves. "Shine On" is an anthemic rock ballad with Bealtes-ey guitars and a gospel choir backing.

                          Crosby, Stills & Nash

                          Crosby Stills & Nash

                          If you know and love this all time classic already, then you may be tempted by the superior sound and artwork, or the four extra songs, three of which are previously unheard. One, their seemingly impromptu yet meltingly delivered cover of "Everybody's Talking" is worth the entrance fee on its own! If, on the other hand, you've never heard this music, think melodic, stoned, warm, groovy, daydream folk rock. It was an album which perfectly resonated with its times (late 60's) and you can still feel its glow, 35 years later. A total classic!

                          How to follow one of the greatest albums of recent years? More of the same, please! That's what Norway's Even Johansen serves up here, and no way should we complain. His music is gentle, folk-based and extremely melodic, but luxuriously produced with pedal-steel, banjo, trumpets and all sorts of electronic squiggles and pops. Even has the sweetest, dreamiest voice that's a mixture of weariness and wonderment, but it's his songwriting skills that impress. Overall not quite as strong as 2003's "On Your Side", you're still not likely to hear a better collection of tunes all year. Recommended!

                          No Hope In New Jersey

                          Steady Diet Of Decline

                          No Hope In New Jersey's emphatic debut album "Steady Diet Of Decline" sees the Manchester quartet come of age, with a maelstrom of devastating riffs and razor-sharp lyrics, and production courtesy of Chris Sheldon. 'We're not the most overtly macho band in the world like, say, Black Flag back in the day,' says Andy, 'but we play with the same abandon and disregard for current convention. And to my mind that's what you really want with a live band. Not this streamlined stuff that passes for punk rock.'

                          Ash

                          Renegade Cavalcade

                          The third single off their acclaimed "Meltdown" album. "Renegade Cavalcade" is the musical link from 2001s "Free All Angels" to the harder edged feel of Ash circa 2004. As ever, Tim Wheeler appears to make it seem a simple task to write a killer tune and harnessed with (the now almost) ubiquitous Ash harmonies, "Renegade Cavalcade" certainly fulfils that criteria.

                          Melvinmania

                          From grunge rock legends The Melvins, this 'best of' compiles five tracks from each of the three albums they recorded for Atlantic records in the mid 90s. Widely regarded as the band's best period, this 15 track collection is also an enhanced CD that includes three of the band's videos. It includes expanded packaging containing, liner notes & photographs and all for a nice cheap price too.

                          When Rick Wakeman replaced Tony Kaye on keyboards in 1971 the last piece was finally in place and Yes were soon to be regarded as amongst the premier progressive rock acts around. Surrounded by banks of instruments, Wakeman played organ, synths, Mellotron, piano and electric harpsichord alongside Anderson, Squire, Bruford and Howe and the first recordings by (what many believe to be) the definitive Yes line-up resulted in "Fragile". Four group tracks and five featuring each individual band member produced classic tracks like "Roundabout", "Heart Of The Sunrise" and "Long Distance Runaround".

Influenced by the explosion of new pyschedelic prog rock bands like Pink Floyd, Cream and the Nice (who weren't afraid to mix rock idioms with classical music) "Yes" was issued in November 1969 it featured Jon Anderson's distinctive vocals, Chris Squire's huge bass sound, Peter Banks' angular guitar and Tony Kaye's keyboards which were underpinned by Bruford's remarkable drumming that managed to be both complex and effortless. It was their first step on the path to prog rock success.

                          The long five year absence from the recording studios of one of prog-rock's biggest bands - Rush, is over. Neil Peart's tragic loss has taken time to overcome but his drum roll on the album's storming opening track "One Little Victory" announces that Rush are back to their best. There's a genuine energy and commitment to "Vapor Trails" that shows a will to make things work, to redefine themselves through their music and this album will be seen as one of the best of their later works.

                          Wicked jazz dance LP from '68 from Hammond maestro McDuff and Dave 'Fathead' Newman on sax and flute.

                          A vaguely disturbing concept album from an interesting new female vocalist, given to theatrics and inner meanings as she tries to engage in a dialogue with her dead father. As much Sheryl Crow as Tori Amos but with a penchant for the dramatic and the unsettling image.

                          Dee Dee Bridgewater

                          Billy Cobham

                          Crosswinds

                          One of the most brilliant drummers of his generation; Billy Cobham has recorded with some of the towering giants of jazz and fusion. His solo albums may be overshadowed by his work with John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra but this 1974 release is one of his best works. Strong compositions, beautifully played with George Duke, John Abercrombie and Randy Brecker all adding their skills to a superb album.

                          Spectrum

                          On 1973's "Spectrum", Cobham unleashed Jan Hammer and Tommy Bolin (later of Deep Purple) loose on his strongest fusion compositions yet. The results were epic in every sense of the word and respect for Cobham increased beyond that given to the worlds greatest drummer. This is brilliant powerhouse fusion and is as vital today as when it was recorded.
