    Hardly Art

    Colleen Green has always been cool, but didn't necessarily feel it. Too young to be free of insecurities but old enough to be sick of them. Five years and a new album later, we find her parsing out what it means to be grown-up. Burnt out on bad feelings and ready to have fun with melodies and beats, Green takes Cool to higher ground while keeping her lo-fi aesthetic intact.

    Empire

    Soundtrack To Your Life is the debut studio album from former O-Town star, Ashley Parker Angel. Originally released in 2006 by Blackground Records, the album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold. Primarily written by Angel himself, the 12-track album features the hit single, "Let U Go.”

    Empire

    The debut self-titled album by singer Jojo, originally released in 2004, features pop and R&B influenced tracks and vocal maturity well beyond typical thirteen-year-olds. Featuring the explosive single, "Leave (Get Out)," the platinum selling album debuted at number four on the Billboard 200, and established Jojo as a pop force for years to come.

    Empire

    Originally released in 2006, JoJo’s second album (at only 15 years of age), The High Road, features an eclectic array of styles, such as pop, alternative rock, and hip hop soul. The album’s lyrical themes showed off growing confidence in the young mega-star while slower tracks and a group of high-profile producers helped showcase JoJo’s superb vocal abilities.

    Merge

    While the pop-oriented tracks hint at sounds first explored on the Superchunk frontman’s 2015 album Non-Believers, McCaughan’s recent excursions down the rabbit hole of synthesizers and sequencers (resulting in an ambient project with Mary Lattimore) add a particularly crystalline spaciness akin to The Durutti Column and Bowie’s Berlin trilogy.

    Universal

    Includes "Let's Change The World," delivering a welcome dose of hope and optimism, the reggae-infused "Just That Way," the Country-esque "Coming Undone," Starr's first collaboration with Linda Perry who wrote and plays on the track alongside Trombone Shorty. Also, Ringo rocks his version of "Rock Around The Clock" revved up by the unmistakable Joe Walsh on guitar.

    Republic

    The songs on Bill chronicle ideas, challenges, and questions Shatner’s confronted all along the way. The resulting work blends long-form autobiographical poetry and prose, music, spoken word, performance art, and philosophical exploration. Toggling between passion and despair, reflection and yearning, this collection explores his life journey during a pivotal and chilling moment of history.

    Napalm

    Throughout his time with massive bands like Alter Bridge and Creed - and most-recently his solo band, Tremonti has never strayed from his love of writing memorable songs with strong inspiration at their core. With Marching In Time, the band looks to build upon this trend while exploring their love for searing heavy music, drawing from current events throughout the last year to form the basis of each colossal track.

    UMe

    Produced by Gary Katz (who worked on all of the original era Steely Dan records), The Nightfly was a critical and commercial success with popular singles like “New Frontier” and “I.G.Y.” This new live release sees the album performed in its entirety, in order, by Steely Dan, or ‘The Steely Dan Band’ as they tend to be referred post Walter Becker’s 2017 death.

    Black Powder Soul Records

    On his debut album, the South Carolina native has formed his own sense of unique musicianship—incorporating self-taught styles that fit each song rather than following conventional techniques With the fourteen tracks, including a special prologue featuring the voice of his late grandfather, McCall explores the balance of good and evil, destruction and healing and the importance of having faith in the darkest of times.

    BMG

    To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the landmark recording of this Cuban ensemble masterpiece, producer Ry Cooder and World Circuit's Nick Gold have gone back to the original tapes and into the archive to produce this Deluxe Remaster package, featuring previously unheard tracks from the original 1996 recording sessions, previously unseen photos, and new liner notes.

    Unique Leader

    Pittsburgh heavyweights' monumental fourth album, Absolvere, takes a dark conceptual journey into the realm of the human mind and the modern condition. With pulverizing production from Christian Donaldson (Shadow of Intent, Cryptopsy, Ingested), crushing riffs collide with insane drumming, all layered under explosive vocals pushed to the front.

    Metal Blade

    Reading, Pennsylvania's Rivers of Nihil have never fit neatly into a box, but with 2018's Where Owls Know My Name, they transcended all labels applied to them. Returning in 2021 with The Work, they have forged further into new territory, delivering an album that is as cerebral as it is visceral, and that covers a staggering sonic range, definitively placing them in a category of their own.

  • New Release Round-Up 09-24-21

    Quicksand - Distant Populations

    Quicksand - Distant Populations - Epitaph
    Distant Populations, just the fourth full-length album of Quicksand's career, comes as a comparatively swift follow-up to Interiors--which itself came a full 22 years after its predecessor, 1995’s Manic Compression. Critically lauded and deemed very much worth the wait, Interiors succeeded in reestablishing the band as the powerful and contemporary entity they had always been. Distant Populations has a punchier, more up-tempo sound than its predecessor; its 11 songs are concise, carved sonic jewels boasting not a single wasted note; and its raw power, its gripping lyricism, leaps out from the very first listening. It is a striking step up for the band.

    UPCOMING RELEASES

    Roger Taylor - Outsider

    Roger Taylor - Outsider - UMe
    Rock icon and multi-instrumentalist Roger Taylor introduces his new solo album Outsider. With much of Outsider recorded during lockdown, this new album finds Taylor in a reflective mood, conveying a palpable sense of isolation, concerns over the passing of time, and tellingly dedicated "to all the outsiders, those who feel left on the sidelines". A highly personal project, Outsider's instrumentation is almost entirely performed by Taylor, with his vocals matching the mood-piece atmosphere.

    Strand Of Oaks - In Heaven

    Strand Of Oaks - In Heaven - Galacticana Records
    To say In Heaven is about conquering grief would be oversimplifying everything Tim Showalter has achieved on the eighth studio album from Strand Of Oaks. A stunning, hopeful reflection on love, loss, and enlightenment, In Heaven is a triumph in music making, and a preeminent addition to the Strand of Oaks discography.
