Actual Water, Call 4 Fun (Bad Actors)

Ginger-Baker-Why-Album-Cover-750x0.jpg

Ab-Soul, These Days (Top Dawg)

The Babys, I'll Have Some of That (Skyrocket Ent./All In Time Records)
The ‘70s classic rock band behind “Isn’t It Time” and “Every Time I Think of You” return after three decades apart with a new record. 

Ginger Baker, Why? (Motema Music)
Best known as the pounding drummer of 1960s classic rock Cream (with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce), Ginger Baker explores his love of African rhythms and jazz greats like Art Blakey, Max Roach and Elvin Jones with his first new album in 16 years, and a few years after 2012 documentary Beware of Mr. Baker.

Bassnectar, Noise vs. Beauty (Ingrooves)

Peter Matthew Bauer, Liberation! (Mexican Summer)
Another solo outing from a member of The Walkmen, this time bassist Peter Matthew Bauer. It's a little more raucous than the ones his bandmates have released, with a little Tom Petty twang and rock n' roll stomp. Listen to "Latin American Ficciones" below.


Black Bananas, Electric Brick Wall (Drag City)
Black Bananas — Jennifer Herrema, Nadav Eisenman, Brian McKinley and Kurt Midness — makes some really weird and loose, mind-warping indie music, a mish-mash of disparate musical elements that they've likened to "trance-bounce, new jack metal, dub-gum, rhythm-n-bus, nu country-psych-hop and glam-core."  "Physical Emotions" is dance-floor glitch with fat zippy synths. Check the amusingly retro video after the jump...

50 Cent, Animal Ambition (G-Unit)

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin, Common Ground (Yep Roc)

Mark Barrott, Sketches From An Island (International Feel)

Andrew Bird, Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of... (Virtual Label)
The whistle-savvy multi-instrumental folk pop singer-songwriter (oh, how I love his dear distinctive croon) presents a covers album of tracks by a band he loves — one I imagine few others outside his sonic realms have heard of: husband-and-wife duo The Handsome Family. You might remember his previous rendition of one of their tracks, 2003's ''Don't Be Scared'' — he includes an updated version in this set as well as his take of "Far From Any Road,'' the main theme song from HBO's True Detective. He and his band The Hands of Glory (Tift Merritt, Alan Hampton, and Eric Heywood) recorded the songs in May 2014 and present them only four weeks later. Video preview below. I want to hear this.

It's the final week of new releases in May — and how this month has flown by with a ton of great music and a slew of intriguing releases. Info and links for the ones you want to know about most for this week below, plus some other ones you may not have heard of (but should know), with audio & video for your listening and viewing pleasure. Click here to see releases from the past several weeks…

1,2,3, Big Weather (American Hermitage)
This band is rather intriguing. The first song off their new LP riffs on John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane," then goes in a completely unexpected (and charming, and just plain good) directions. Check "Big Weather Part 1" below; it's like, big-beat electro-roots-psychedelia with jangly pop stuff happening int here, bright percussion and surf-tinged vocal harmonies.


Black-Anvil-Hail-Death1.jpg
7Seconds, Leave A Light On (Rise)

Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, Dereconstructed (Sub Pop)

Bam Margera's Fuckface Unstoppable, FFU (Artery)

Matthew Barber, Big Romance (Outside Music)

Black Anvil, Hail Death (Relapse)

Clear Plastic Masks, Being There (Serpents & Snakes Records)

Hollie Cook, Twice (YSM)
Reggae music fleshed out with cinematic strings, Brazilian percs and the pretty coos and croons of British songstress Cook, a recent recruit of The Slits. There's something rather mesmerizing about her vocal quality and the swaying lush nature of her music. Check out "Looking for Real Love" after the jump, along with the rest of this week's releases.

Releases out this week; audio & video included

Posted By on Tue, May 20, 2014 at 12:11 PM


The next round of releases for the month of May. Some of these actually came out yesterday (Coldplay, The Roots, a bunch of others), but for the purposes of this post, let's just pretend everything came out today, shall we? Info and links for releases you want to know about most below, plus some other ones you may not have heard of (but should know), with audio & video for your listening and viewing pleasure. Click here to see releases from the past several weeks…

Brian-Jonestown-Massacre--Revelation-album-cover.jpg
Archie Bronson Outfit, Wild Crush (Domino)

The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Revelation (A. Records)
The first BJM album fully recorded and produced at frontman Anton Newcombe's recording studio in Berlin; this is the 14th release overall from the genre-busting outfit. (Album cover at left).

Haley BonarLast War (Graveface)
The fifth full length from the Manitoba-bred pop rock songstress is pretty, catchy, bright and fun. She's collabed with the likes of Dave King, Andrew Bird and Justin Vernon. "Don't you love a man who cries, o" she sings in first single "No Sensitive Man," which you can check out after the jump, along with the rest of this week's new releases. If you like what you hear, you can stream her album in full at NPR.

Releases out this week; audio & video included

The second week of new releases in May features some giant names, both dead and alive. Info and links for the ones you want to know about most below, plus some other ones you may not have heard of (but should know), with audio & video for your listening and viewing pleasure. Click here to see releases from the past several weeks…

toriamos.jpg
Amen Dunes, Love (Sacred Bones)

Tori Amos, Unrepentant Geraldines (Mercury Classics)
The piano-banging songstress and the first female artist I really loved — were Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink really that long ago? — presents her 14th studio LP. She also stops at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Aug. 22. 

Kyle AndrewsOne Plus One EP (self-release)

Joseph Arthur, Lou (Vanguard)

Bane, Don't Wait Up (Equal Vision Records)

blackkeys.jpg
The Black KeysTurn Blue (Nonesuch)
Who would've thought the garage-blues twosome from Akron, Ohio would get big enough to play arena-sized venues? I certainly didn't the first time I saw them at Skipper's back in '05, though that date was magical (and far more intimate than any Keys concert I've seen since). This is the eighth studio LP from the Dan Auerbach-led outfit filled out with aux players now in addition to drummer Patrick Carney; this album was co-produced by Danger Mouse.

Blondie, Ghosts Of Download (Nobel ID)

Blueprint, Respect the Architect (Weightless)

New Music Tuesday! (May 6): Lily Allen, tUnE-yArDs, Lykki Li, Lil Wayne & more

Releases out this week; audio & video included

Posted By on Tue, May 6, 2014 at 1:40 PM

The fourth week of new releases in April. Info and links for the ones you want to know about most below, plus some other ones you may not have heard of (but should know), with audio & video for your listening and viewing pleasure. Click here to see releases from the past several weeks…

lilyallen.jpg
Lily Allen, Sheezus (Warner Bros.)
It's hard not to like such a brash and sassy British pop songstress, especially when she writes such cheeky lyrics. This is her third full-length studio album, and while I'm not a huge fan of first single "Hard Out There" (for a bitch), I don't hate it. U.K. music rag Q notes that Sheezus is a blend of "punchy feminist statements, wistful party jams, NSFW love letters to her husband, two-finger salutes to her critics, and moments of startling vulnerability."  

Gregg Allman, All My Friends: Celebrating The Songs & Voice Of Gregg Allman (Rounder)
A live album of performances honoring the rock n' roll icon, by Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Devon Allman, Robert Randolph, Sam Moore, Keb' Mo', Dr. John, Pat Monahan, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal, Widespread Panic, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Jackson Brown,the Allman Brothers Band with musical direction by Don Was, and others.

Rodrigo Amarante, Cavalo (Easy Sound)

andrew-jackson-jihad-christmas-island-album-cover-art.png
Andrew Jackson Jihad, Christmas Island (SideOneDummy)

Atmosphere, Southersiders (Rhymesayers)

Badbadnotgood, III (Innovative Leisure)

Black Stone Cherry, Magic Mountain (Roadrunner)

Current Swell, Ulysses (Nettwerk)

Eno Hyde, Someday World (Warp)
[Brian Eno and Karl Hyde project]

Fujiya & Miyagi, Artificial Sweeteners (Yep Roc)
The UK's krauty electro outfit issues a fifth full-length. Check the video for first single "Flaws" below. Much more of an early '80s sound with heavy urgent synth jams, but with the same breathy-Brit vocals. Check it out after the jump along with the rest of this week's new releases....
