Janiva Magness: Love Is An Army

After Janiva Magness added a 2016 Grammy nomination to her 27 Blues Music Award nominations – with seven wins, including Entertainer of the Year – she might have taken at least a short rest on her laurels. Instead, one of the preeminent voices in contemporary American roots music has raised the bar for herself. Magness’ fourteenth album, Love Is an Army, is a brilliantly crafted bridge between the past and present, blending the echoes of classic soul and country music with timeless themes of love and the very contemporary sound of protest. Love Is an Army’s dozen songs reverberate with the timeless character of the Memphis rhythm & blues patented by the Stax and Hi Records studios, especially in tracks like “Back to Blue,” which opens the album and sets it’s tone, and “Hammer,” which features Grammy Winner and multiple Blues Music Awards winner Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica. Another Tennessee music city, Nashville, is the geographic touchstone for the title number, a duet with Texas singer / songwriter Bryan Stephens, and for “On and On,” with Poco frontman Rusty Young on pedal steel guitar. Like Magness, both Stephens and Young are on Blue Elan Records. Other guest artists include the legendary R&B singer Delbert McClinton, Mississippi hill country blues torchbearer Cedric Burnside, bluegrass guitar and banjo virtuoso Courtney Hartman of the band Della Mae.


John Mayall: Three For The Road

2018 release featuring songs recorded live in Germany, 2017 with his trio featuring Greg Rzab & Jay Davenport. Includes recent tunes mixed with old classics. That title refers to the UK blues doyen’s great trio (John with bassist Greg Rzab and drummer Jay Davenport) who toured Europe in 2017, resulting in this new live album drawn from two shows in Germany. The guys dig into material both recent and vintage: “Big Town Playboy,” “I Feel So Bad,” “Streamline,” “Lonely Feeling,” “Congo Square,” “Don’t Deny Me” and more.


Caroline Rose: Loner

The songs and narrative’s on LONER reflect my life over the last couple years-I joined Tinder, I got my first apartment and painted it teal, I went to parties, I discussed politics, I had a girlfriend, we traveled the country, we broke up. I learned, for better or worse, how to be a member of the modern world. Turns out the modern world is terrifying. Tired of the bottomless pit of sad songs, I decided to put a spin on my greatest songwriting inspirations-misogyny, unplanned pregnancy, Capitalism, anxiety, loneliness and death-and wrap such depressing subject matter in a sprightly, angsty pop burrito… Because it’s hard being serious all the time and sometimes sad songs just need a cocktail. Loner reflects the styles of music I love-pop, folk, punk, electronic, and surf music-all thrown into a blender with a ladle full of cheeky satire. I call it Schizodrift. It sounds like Blondie drunk on mai tais. Loner was co-produced by myself and the wonderful Paul Butler (Devendra Banhart, Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul & The Broken Bones) and recorded in freezing Northern California, in addition to my parent’s attic and my last apartment. It was mixed by sound guru Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Nick Hakim, Show Me The Body) in Brooklyn, NY. – C. Rose


Al Di Meola: Opus

Al Di Meola is a pioneer of blending world music, rock and jazz. His ongoing fascination for complex rhythmic syncopation, combined with provocative lyrical melodies and sophisticated harmony, has been the heart of his music throughout a celebrated career that has spanned over four decades.

He has also earned the highest amount of Guitar awards in different categories from Guitar Player magazine.

NEW RELEASES for January, 2018 include:

Black Label Society: Grimmest Hits

Black Label Society bandleader Zakk Wylde wields his guitar like a Viking weapon, bashing out thick riffage and squeezing out expressive squeals as if the glory of his Berserker brotherhood depends upon every single note, which of course, it does. Charismatic beast and consummate showman, Wylde puts his massive heart and earnest soul on display with unbridled, unchained, animalistic passion in Black Label Society, whether it’s a crushingly heavy blues-rock barnstormer or a piano-driven ode to a fallen brother. Each Black Label Society album is another opportunity to top the one before it, but like AC/DC or The Rolling Stones, BLS isn’t here to reinvent the wheel. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s a brand we can trust. Grimmest Hits, the band’s tenth full-length studio album and follow-up to Billboard Top 5 entries Catacombs of the Black Vatican (2014) and Order of the Black (2010), Black Label Society submit new anthems like radio single “Room of Nightmares,” the bluesy “Seasons of Falter,” and Southern-fried “The Day That Heaven Had Gone Away” to the BLS faithful; 12 unstoppable tracks to add to that lifestyle soundtrack.


Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Wrong Creatures

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Wrong Creatures Vagrant Records Recorded in Los Angeles, Wrong Creatures takes a journey throughout rock’s history, taking unlikely twists and turns, both peppered with historic influences but also having one foot firmly in the present. Yet their focus still firmly set on returning to edge of the stage, never resting on their laurels and bringing people further into their live experience. – Wrong Creatures returns to the core of BRMC’s alchemy, yet plunges the knife in even further. From the Cave-esque murder balladry of “Haunt” to the garage punk of “Little Thing Gone Wild,” it runs the gamut allowing the band to flex every muscle in their armor. They remain opaque about the songs’ greater meanings, fearful of past misunderstandings. – Ultimately, the band are survivors during an era where rock’n’roll can often be overshadowed by garish pop and domineering hip-hop. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have learned how to cut out all the noise and concentrate on what matters. Robert Levon Been: “We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it’s usually best to dress accordingly. Though i’m not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything.”


Calexico: Thread That Keeps Us

The ninth studio album from Calexico, The Thread That Keeps Us is a timely snapshot of the Arizona-bred band: a family portrait capturing their stylistic variety and unpredictability while still finding solace in limitless creativity. In bringing the album to life, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino found a spiritual home in unusual surroundings-not in Arizona, but on the Northern California coast in a home-turned-studio called the Panoramic House. Built from debris and shipyard-salvaged timber-and dubbed The Phantom Ship by the band-the grandiose house and it’s edge-of-the-world-like ambience soon made their way into the songs. The specter of California also had a powerful effect: as both dream state and nightmare, it’s infinite duality is mirrored in the music, giving Calexico a new direction and new edge. With less Polish and more grit than ever before, The Thread That Keeps Us both honors enduring traditions and reveals Calexico’s confidence in songwriting, ultimately setting a whole new standard for the band.


Camila

Camila Cabello releases her first solo album, one of the most awaited of the year, titled “Camila”. According to the artist, the album composes the soundtrack of her last year, of much work and conquests. Camila was released as a solo artist in 2017, with the single “Crying in The Club”. The track accumulates more than 15 million streams in the world, has reached the Top 50 of Spotify in 40 countries and has achieved Platinum certification in Brazil. His second single (and hit) “Havana”, released in August of that year, surpasses 400 million streams, reaching the Top 5 of Spotify in 37 countries (including Brazil, where it remains as international # 1 on the platform) and Spotify’s Top 50 in 57 countries. The track hit # 2 on the Billboard / World. In Brazil the single won the 3x Platinum certification and reached # 1 on radio, iTunes, Apple Music and Deezer. Camila Cabello is a Cuban singer and songwriter, residing in the United States. She began her career as a member of the girl band Fifth Harmony, formed during the second season of The X Factor USA. He began his solo career in 2017, in which he has received several awards, including that of Artista Revelação by Billboard. Self-titled full-length debut album. Certified 2X Platinum by the RIAA! Camila is the first debut female artist of 2017 to score a #1 position at Top 40 radio, “Havana” being her second after “Bad Things,” her single with Machine Gun Kelly, which hit #1 in February 2017, Cabello is additionally just the fifth artist to post multiple Pop Songs No. 1s as a soloist while also having ruled the ranking with a group. She joins Beyoncé, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake,” Billboard. New songs include – Never Be the Same 3:47, Havana (feat. Young Thug) 3:37, Real Friends 3:34, Never Be the Same (Radio Edit) 3:47


Corrosion of Conformity: No Cross No Crown

Whenever Corrosion of Conformity releases a new album, folks take notice. But their latest is a true event. It’s been a dozen years since C.O.C. recorded new material with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan at the helm. In that time, there have been rumors, whispers and outright allegations that the legendary Southern rock outfit would reunite to blow the doors off the whole damn scene again. In 2014, after nearly a straight decade traversing the globe as a guitarist with New Orleans supergroup Down, Keenan reconnected with the core C.O.C. trio of Woody Weatherman, Mike Dean and Reed Mullin to hit the road hard and write & record “No Cross No Crown”


Fall Out Boy: M A N I A

the seventh album from alt-rock band Fall Out Boy. The album features “Young And Menace” and “Champion”. M A N I A is the follow-up album to the band’s platinum-certified American Beauty/American Psycho, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Hailing from Chicago, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, lead guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley. The band originated from Chicago’s hardcore punk scene, with which all members were involved at one point. The group was formed by Wentz and Trohman as a pop punk side project of the members’ respective hardcore bands, and Stump joined shortly thereafter. The group went through a succession of drummers before landing Hurley.


First Aid Kit: Ruins

Ruins is the eagerly awaited album from Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit. This album finds First Aid Kit as you’ve never heard them before: wounded and biting back hard. While Ruins follows the traditions of the classic folk-rock sound that First Aid Kit revived via their breakthrough album Stay Gold (2014) and previous releases The Big Black And The Blue (2010) and The Lion’s Roar (2012), the difference is that this time they’ve lived, and the results are intense. Tracks such as “Rebel Heart” the album’s opener documents a love doomed from the start. “It’s A Shame” the lead single is a plea to live in the moment because everyone disposes of each other eventually. On “Postcard” and To Live A Life,” you feel the breath-stealing weight of despair when a shattered love leaves you bereft of hope. “Fireworks” introverts the blame with self-loathing. Ruins was made with one target in mind: make it sound more real a result the Söderberg sisters clearly achieved.


Glen Hansard: Between Two Shores

Following up 2015’s Grammy-nominated Didn’t He Ramble, and his 2012 solo debut Rhythm and Repose, this 10-track collection was produced by Hansard himself for the first time. The culmination of more than six years of writing and recording, Between Two Shores came together in only a matter of weeks. The aptly titled “Setting Forth” became the catalyst for the direction Hansard hoped to achieve with Between Two Shores. Recorded with drummer extraordinaire Brian Blade and members of his Fellowship Band the song tackles themes of self-doubt in a time when it’s impossible not to be riddled with uncertainty. The album’s lead track “Time Will be the Healer” is a hopeful plea to a forlorn lover that also speaks to the way for-ward in the current social climate. Indeed, it would be impossible not to in some way address the politics of the day, which Hansard does in “Wheels on Fire” and it’s refrain of “We will overcome!”


Joe Bonamassa & Beth Hart: Black Coffee

It’s been four years since the critically acclaimed, Grammy nominated, and #1 Billboard Blues album Seesaw was released by singer-songwriter Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa. Since they have both been on fire, riding creative tidal waves live in the studio. They have reunited for another collection of 10 soul gems that pair Hart’s breathtaking vocals and Joe’s masterful expressive playing. Featuring songs by Edgar Winter, Ray Charles, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Lucinda Williams and more. The first studio album released by this magical duo was Don’t Explain in 2011, followed by the Grammy nominated album Seesaw in 2013. In 2014, they released their first live album and DVD Live in Amsterdam, recorded during their mini tour in Europe.


Joe Perry: Sweetzerland Manifesto

from the legendary Aerosmith guitarist. Sweetzerland Manifesto features 11 hard-rocking original songs from the legendary Aerosmith guitarist. Joining Perry is a Murderers Row of some of the baddest names in rock, including Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), who sings on the single “Aye, Aye, Aye”, David Johansen (New York Dolls), and Terry Reid. Even world-famous actor Johnny Depp gets in on the action, playing drums on “Eve Of Destruction”. Joe Perry was ranked 84th in Rolling Stone’s list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of Aerosmith, and in 2013, Perry and his songwriting partner Steven Tyler were recipients of the ASCAP Founders Award and were also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.


Machine Head: Catharsis

If heavy music stands for anything, it’s freedom. Formed in Oakland, California in 1991, Machine Head have forged a formidable reputation and huge global fan base by never surrendering their artistic liberty or compromising their belief in the power of heaviness. Exploding into the consciousness of metalheads worldwide with their seminal 1994 debut album ‘Burn My Eyes’, the band led by singer/guitarist Robb Flynn have consistently raged against the grain, producing a steady stream of lead-heavy but fiendishly inventive modern metal records that have both defined and redefined the sound of metal in the 21st century. Over the span of 20 years, Machine Head have sold over 800,000 records in the US alone, garnered a Grammy nomination, toured the globe with Metallica and are truly force to be reckoned with overseas. As with any band that stands strong through a near twenty-year career, there are always ups and downs, but as the beginning of the new millennium would prove, more than ever Machine Head would bow down to no one when it came to their musical output. Machine Head created the blueprint for the modern metal masterpiece.


Mary Gauthier: Rifles And Rosary Beads

the 10th album from the folk singer/songwriter. Rifles and Rosary Beads is a collection of songs by Mary Gauthier, co-written with U.S. veterans and their families, through Songwriting With Soldiers, a non-profit organization that pairs US veterans with professional songwriters. These songs are a glimpse inside the hearts and souls of both male and female soldiers, and their spouses. The eleven deeply personal songs on this album reveal the untold stories, and powerful struggles that these veterans deal with abroad and after returning home. Each song on Rifles and Rosary Beads is a gut punch: deceptively simple and emotionally complex. From the opening “Soldiering On” (“What saves you in the battle/Can kill you at home”) to “Bullet Holes in the Sky” (“They thank me for my service/And wave their little flags/They genuflect on Sundays/And yes, they’d send us back”), to the abject horror of “Iraq,” and it’s quiet depiction of a female mechanic’s rape, each song tells the story of a deeply wounded veteran



Ranky Tanky Builds On The Music And Culture Of Slave Descendants
Listen to Fresh Air Segment


Joe Satriani: What Happens Next

What Happens Next is the sixteenth studio album by the acclaimed guitarist. Joe Satriani consciously went in a more simplistic direction than on his previous album, Shockwave Supernova. As opposed to an alien alter ego, this time he wrote songs “about a human being, two feet on the ground, heart pumping, with emotions, dreams, and hopes. That seemed to be the direction I really was yearning for”. He referred to it as an ‘internal artistic rebirth’ and collaborated with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes and producer Mike Fraser. It was recorded in Los Angeles and San Francisco, with Satriani abandoning progressive elements of his last two albums and utilizing a more straightforward, accessible sound he termed “pure rock and soul”.


The Shins: Worms Heart

2018 release. The Worms Heart is a complete re-work of The Shins critically acclaimed March, 2017 album Heartworms. The album offers new reworked versions of the Heartworms album original tracks, and the sequence is flipped as well. When James Mercer wrote, produced, and recorded the Heartworms album, he had this desire for an alternate version, an opposite version. The album’s slow songs would be flipped and re-recorded as fast songs, and vice versa. The reasoning was to showcase the versatility and strength of his songwriting, and the result is The Worm’s Heart. This ‘flipped’ collection is produced by Yuuki Matthews, Jon Sortland, and James Mercer; and is a must for any fan of The Shins.


Strange Angels: In Flight With Elmore James / Various

Strange Angels: In Flight With Elmore James brings together a group of amazing artists to pay tribute to the legendary Elmore James in this 13-song collection of his classic blues standards. Warren Haynes, Billy Gibbons, and Mickey Raphael feature on a rendition of ‘Mean Mistreatin’ Mama’. Crooner Tom Jones lends his voice to ‘Done Somebody Wrong’. Keb Mo’ performs ‘Look On Yonder Wall’ and Bettye LaVette sings ‘Person To Person’. Also featured are Rodney Crowell, Jamey Johnson, Shelby Lynne, Allison Moorer, Chuck E. Weiss, and many others. Proceeds benefit Musicares and Edible Schoolyard NYC. Elmore James was known as King of the Slide Guitar and was noted for his use of loud amplification and his stirring voice.

They Might Be Giants: I Like Fun

They Might Be Giants is back! The Brooklyn originals can’t stop and won’t stop, with 2018 already destined to be one of their most magnificent and productive years to date. Thirty-five years deep into their epic career, they release I Like Fun. The fifteen-track album was produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, David Byrne, Mary J. Blige, The National, Donald Fagen) and recorded at Reservoir Studios (the former Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum album Flood). The lead track, ‘I Left My Body’, is a prime slice of the power They Might Be Giants commands. Hyper-melodic, fresh, and ever rocking, They Might Be Giants formidable live lineup enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the best shows around, and this album is a real showcase for that musical energy. I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling, singular point of view TMBG always delivers.


Tommy Emmanuel: Accomplice One

Accomplice One is a testament to Tommy Emmanuel’s musical diversity, the range of expression that stretches from authentic country-blues to face-melting rock shredding, by way of tender and devastating pure song playing. The songs are a mix of new takes on indelible classics and new originals from Tommy and his collaborators. The artists who stepped forward to join Tommy in the studio are an impressive list of some of today’s most respected performers, from across the musical spectrum – a lineup including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss and many others.


tUnE-yArDs: I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life

tUnE-yArDs’ magnum opus will arrive in the form of their new album I can feel you creep into my private life. Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as tUnE-yArDs’ most immediate and upbeat music yet- this is tUnE-yArDs’ music to dance to. On I can feel you creep into my private life, tUnE-yArDs is officially a duo. Garbus is joined by longtime collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. tUnE-yArDs worked with mixer Mikaelin “Blue” BlueSpruce (Solange, Kendrick Lamar).


Ty Segall: Freedom’s Goblin

Ty Segall goes all the way, flipping the Freedom coin to find passion, laughter and savagery on both sides. A head-spinning compendium of stompers, weepers, ballads, screamers, bangers and funker-uppers, all marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of life and loathing and the pursuit of what you love. Ty Segall is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and record producer. He is best known for his prolific solo career. Segall is also a member of the bands Fuzz, Broken Bat and GØGGS, and is a former member of The Traditional Fools, Epsilons, Party Fowl, Sic Alps, and The Perverts.
