Caroline Rose - The Art of Forgetting

Caroline Rose - The Art of Forgetting- New West Records
The time is now for Caroline Rose. Their last record, Superstar, was released on March 6, 2020. The record was critically acclaimed and positioned Rose as the next big breakthrough in music. Needless to say, the resulting pandemic grinded all momentum to a halt while at the same time throwing Roses personal life into turmoil. The result of that turmoil is the fuel that fired the creation of their latest album, The Art of Forgetting. With The Art of Forgetting, Rose took on the dual role of writer and producer. The album encapsulates the feeling of experiencing recent memories, having them turn into old ones and then ultimately forgetting those memories altogether. There is a romantic nature within the sonic landscape of this record. Tape effects and loops emulate the feeling of aging while the juxtaposition of modern acoustic-electronic textures, like lo-fi tape next to hi-fi granular synths result in some of their most mature and honest work to date.

Fake Names - Expendables

Fake Names - Expendables- Epitaph
If credibility were currency, Fake Names wealth would be off thecharts. Composed of Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty), Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace), Dennis Lyxzn (Refused, INVSN,The [International] Noise Conspiracy), Johnny Temple (Girls AgainstBoys, Soulside) and the newest member Brendan Canty (Fugazi, Rites ofSpring), the band is a veritable post-hardcore dream team.However instead of rehashing the past, Expendables is a reinventionthat sees the band dialing back the distortion and leaning into themelodies. The result pairs their unparalleled pedigree with a popsensibility thats slightly unexpected and wholly satisfying. For ourlast record [2019s FAKE NAMES]the general influences were 70s U.K.punk and power-pop; but it wound up with a little classic rock vibe aswell, like the Vibrators meets Aerosmith. We never saw that coming! ,Baker explains.For Expendables the band enlisted producer Adam Atom Greenspan (IDLES, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Baker explains, The pop influences are alittle more out front on this one and the production really helps it shine. It sounds more direct, more urgent.Expendables is the latest exchange in a musical conversation that spans four decades. Baker aptly refers to the lineup of FAKE NAMESas a mutual admiration society and says that once the five members got in the same room together, it felt as if they had already been inthe band together for years.

Elton John - Honky Chateau: 50th Anniversary

Elton John - Honky Chateau: 50th Anniversary- Island
Released in May 1972, Honky Chateau was the album that made Elton John a superstar and ushered in a new era for him. Named after the residential studios outside Paris where the album was recorded, Honky Chteau bought a new level of simplicity and directness to Eltons music that had previously only been seen in glimpses. Shorn of the complexities and ornate orchestrations of his recent work, Honky Chateau seemed freewheeling and intimate. It was helped by Rocket Man, the record which became another of Eltons signature songs. These special editions contain the original album, and on both vinyl and CD editions a newly created selection of outtakes from the sessions, produced from the original tapes by Matt Still, which highlight the warmth and humor of the sessions.On CD only there are eight tracks from the album that were recorded at the Royal Festival Hall in 1972, all receiving their live debut, just a few days back in the UK after recording. Assembled with the customary care by Eltons catalog team, the album comes as a gatefold with an eight-page booklet with rare photos, memorabilia and an essay by co-curator and music writer Daryl Easlea, featuring interviews from those who were there. Honky Chteau has been mastered at Lurssen in California, and the vinyl cut at Abbey Road.

What's New 3-10-23


Recorded in the Tuareg guitarists home country over the past five years, these live and alternate takes offer the chance to hear his music in the cultural context in which he forged it. As the Niger EP demonstrate, a field recorder pointed in the general direction of a band in the middle of a wild party can capture a lot of life.

Rough Trade

Though no strangers to the dancefloor, the minimal yet immersive beats and grooves of UK Grims's tracks which include collaborations with Dry Cleanings Florence Shaw and Janes Addictions Perry Farrell among them add a new, physical dimension to Sleaford Mods sound that makes their words more vital than ever. Music for body AND mind.

Sonic Records

The Big Bottle of Joy is about celebration - hard-won, overflowing, exuberant celebration. Over a dozen songs infused with raw blues-rock, rollicking Americana, thoughtful folk, and ecstatic gospel, Andersen testifies to something we could all do well to remember: the time we have together is special, so let's spend it the right way.

New West

After recording over 20 songs, including some that dabbled in electro-pop and stripped-down country, the band settled on the final 14 songs containing the best elements of 70s-driven blues rock. Sonically, the album is reminiscent of Sticky Fingers-era Stones, but the lyrics are mini-vignettes that embody the spirit of what The Nude Party are going for and their growth as a band.

Otherwise - Gawdzillionaire

Otherwise - Gawdzillionaire- Mascot
If anybody knows how to fight, it's Otherwise. The Las Vegas quartet Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar], Nick Bedrosian [bass], and Joe Conner [drums]-have weathered personal tragedy and trauma, withstood the tides of the industry, and still stand tall. If anything, the boys are stronger than ever with a one-two punch of airtight guitars, stadium-shaking grooves, and hypnotic hard-hitting hooks. Over the past decade, they've clawed their way through the rock 'n' roll ranks and emerged as an unbreakable force. Their catalog spans fan favorites such as True Love Never Dies [2012], Peace At All Costs [2014], and Sleeping Lions [2017]. However, their fifth full-length album, Gawdzillionaire [Mascot Label Group], trumpets their fighting spirit louder than ever before.

The Cold Stares - Voices

The Cold Stares - Voices-Mascot
For the past ten years, The Cold Stares have toured the world relentlessly as a duo, blowing away audiences across the US and Europe with a fierce, blistering live show that belied their bare bones, guitar-and-drums setup. Now, the band is embracing a whole new kind of chemistry as they launch their next chapter, adding a third member and channelling the classic power trio sound they grew up on with their explosive new album, Voices. "The chains were off when we made this record," says guitarist/singer Chris Tapp. "Suddenly, all the parameters that had dictated what we could and couldn't do just disappeared and we were free to create whatever sound we wanted." That sense of total artistic liberation lies at the heart of Voices, which pushes The Cold Stares' signature mix of blues, southern, and hard rock to bold new heights.

What's New 3-3-23


Uchis most immersive project yeta bottomless plunge into the waters of love and loss. The fluid groove of Blue feels like a Sade B-side, while Love Between weaves doo-wop nostalgia into crystalline romantic reverie. Often, its her smoldering voice that holds all the dreaminess together. Its never maximalist, always utilitarian, molded to fit revenge and desire in equal measure.

Metal Blade

Technical Death Metal is a notoriously crowded arena which is why its exciting to see a band like Entheos ascend by becoming a wholly more progressive and experimental entity. No longer needing to compromise their vision, the increased diversity in almost every facet has only seen this band grow exponentially into an exciting and creative force. The more tantalizing aspect is that they can go even further.


Four master collaborators at the peak of their craft with near-telepathic cohesion. Silver Saturdays features 10 new songs that pay homage to a 25-year journey. All four members lend their distinctive vocals. Their concise, meticulously crafted songwriting is interwoven with Lebos soaring acoustic-electric guitar. Gills tasty keyboard comping and Adams bass groove married to Lipps rhythmic flourishes.


The third solo album from the Seattle native, rapper and songwriter best known as one-half of duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Includes "Chant (featuring Tones And I), "Faithful" (featuring NLE Choppa), "Heroes" (featuring DJ Premier considered one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time), and "Maniac" (featuring Windsor). *Available on Indie Exclusive vinyl with alternate cover*

Big Loud

The 36-song mega collection brings together Wallens many musical influences including country, alternative and hip-hop, and features with country bigwigs Eric Church, Hardy and Ernest. Of the hefty length, Wallen says, there are 36 songs on this album because we just kept exploring with fresh lyrics, music and production ideas and these are the songs that felt right to me.

Kill Rock Stars

Over the course of the record traversing between oddball dance-punk and noise pop, Gallo shares detailed anecdotes and takes on male entitlement, the age of anxiety, apathy vs. action, narcissism, retail therapy, xenophobia, the dread of future generations, right wing extremists in giant pickup trucks, capitalism, and climate change. its the opposite of background music - unavoidable, urgent, in your face.

Thirty Tigers

Alabama native Drayton Farley has as honest a voice as you're likely to hear in this burgeoning scene of country, folk, roots, and Americana music we're all wrapped up in. He sings as deeply about the love he holds as the love he's lost and there's something so broken-in and comfortable about that Southern inflection that every song feels like coming home.

Blue Note

Drummer and composer Kendrick Scott returns with his first compositional treatment of trio context: saxophone, bass, and drums. Corridors unveils an exposed rumination from the Houston-born artist and his acclaimed collaborators: saxophonist Walter Smith III and bassist Reuben Rogers. Born during the pandemic lockdown, the record focuses on posing outward questions instead of inward contemplation.
