Faith No More: Sol Invictus

Faith No More: Sol Invictus

Faith No More: Sol Invictus

The music of Faith No More has lived through five presidents, endless wars, economic booms and busts, global meltdown and revolutionary rebirths. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, the hardedged group’s hybridized sound has scored the soundtrack to a time of change, and now in the 21st century, the legendary band has evolved once more to return with a powerful new album, Sol Invictus, and a new focus.


 

Brandon Flowers: The Desired Effect

Brandon Flowers: The Desired Effect

Brandon Flowers: The Desired Effect

2015 solo album by The Killer’s frontman. Almost five years since the release of his critically acclaimed solo debut, Flamingo, Flowers’ solo return follows a time of continued huge success with his band The Killers, who released the global chart-topping album Battle Born in 2012, as well as the greatest hits collection Direct Hits in 2013, selling out the likes of Wembley Stadium and Madison Square Garden while continuing to headline major festivals around the world.


 

Jeff Beck: LIVE +

Jeff Beck: LIVE +

Jeff Beck: LIVE +

2015 live release spanning the legendary guitarist’s vast and varied career along with two new studio tracks. The 14 live performances on Jeff Beck Live+ were recorded at multiple venues in 2014 and feature Beck backed by his band: vocalist Jimmy Hall, bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Jonathan Joseph and guitarist Nicolas Meier. The quintet explored Beck’s vast catalog-which stretches across five decades-with performances of “Morning Dew” (from Truth, 1968), “Superstition” (from Beck, Bogert, Appice, 1973), “Big Block” (from Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop, 1989), as well as two Grammy-winning tracks: his cover of the Beatles’ “A Day In The Life” and “Hammerhead.” Live + concludes with two new studio tracks: “Tribal” and “My Tiled White Floor,” with guest vocals from Ruth Lorenzo and Veronica Bellino, respectively. These aggressive new songs mark Beck’s first studio recordings since 2010 and show a stark departure from the sound on his previous album as the guitarist continues to push the envelope of musical innovation, just as he has his entire career. These tracks are sure to whet the appetite of Beck fans as the guitarist prepares his 17th studio album.


 

Ceremony: The L-Shaped Man

Ceremony: The L-Shaped Man

Ceremony: The L-Shaped Man

Ceremony’s fifth studio album, The L-Shaped Man, uses singer Ross Farrar’s recent breakup as a platform to explore loneliness and emotional weariness, but it is by no means a purely sad album. Rather than look inward, Farrar uses his experience to write about what it means to go through something heavy and come out the other side a different person.


 

Sammy Hagar & The Circle: At Your Service

Sammy Hagar & The Circle: At Your Service

Sammy Hagar & The Circle: At Your Service

Murs: Have a Nice Life

Murs: Have a Nice Life

Murs: Have a Nice Life

2015 album from the rapper. Destined to be one of the most talked about albums of the year, with production by Mayday, Grammy-nominated producer Jesse Shatkin and tracks like “Okey Dog”, “No More Control”, “Mi Corazon” and “Black Girls Be Like”, Have A Nice Life is a stellar addition for longtime fans of Murs and a mind-blowing introduction to new fans, from an artist that takes Strange Music to an entirely different level.

Graham Parker & the Rumour: Mystery Glue

Graham Parker & the Rumour: Mystery Glue

Graham Parker and the Rumour, one of the UK’s pioneering pre-punk bands, returns with the 2015 album, Mystery Glue. Written in Parker’s second home of New York and recorded in just six days in the legendary RAK studios in London, Mystery Glue is a real return to form for this seminal British songwriter and powerhouse band, which features its original lineup of Parker, Bob Andrews, Brinsley Schwarz, Martin Belmont, Andrew Bodnar and Stephen Goulding.


 

Paul Weller: Saturns Pattern

Paul Weller: Saturns Pattern

Paul Weller: Saturns Pattern

2015 release, the 12th solo album from the veteran British singer/songwriter and former leader of The Jam and The Style Council. The follow up to 2012’s No. 1 album Sonik Kicks, Paul continues to push the boundaries with another kaleidoscopic tour de force delivered with a verve and ambition to shame his contemporaries as he continues to adapt and evolve to stay one step ahead of the pack. Written and recorded at de facto HQ, Black Barn Studios in Surrey, Saturns Pattern was produced by Jan “Stan” Kybert and Paul himself. Musicians on the album feature some of the touring band faithful: Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier and Steve Pilgrim plus an illustrious roll-call of guest musicians who include The Strypes’ Josh McClorey and Paul’s old mate from Woking Steve Brookes who was guitarist in the original line-up of The Jam. Paul also brought in members of his favorite new band Syd Arthur to add to the proceedings. Passion, progression, languid grooves and, as ever, spine-tingling rock ‘n’ roll – Paul Weller has, yet again, delivered another masterpiece.

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell: The Traveling Kind

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell: The Traveling Kind

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell: The Traveling Kind

The Traveling Kind follows the longtime friends’ first duet album, 2013’s Old Yellow Moon, which won Best Americana Album at the 56th annual Grammy Awards as well as two awards at the 2013 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards Show, for Album of the Year and Duo/Group of the Year. Produced by Grammy Award winner Joe Henry (Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann), The Traveling Kind comprises 11 duet tracks, including six new songs written by Harris and Crowell with co-writing by Mary Carr, Cory Chisel, Will Jennings, and Larry Klein. Also featured are new renditions of previous Crowell cuts including “No Memories Hanging Around” as well as new interpretations of Lucinda Williams’ “I Just Wanted to See You So Bad” and Amy Allison’s “Her Hair Was Red.”


 

Leonard Cohen: Can't Forget

Leonard Cohen: Can’t Forget

Leonard Cohen: Can’t Forget

The ten songs on this hypnotic album are Cohen rarities recorded on his recent, celebrated Old Ideas World Tour. The songs on Can’t Forget have the immediacy, spontaneity, and thrilling intimacy of the best studio recordings made in the white heat of live performance and Cohen’s legendary soundchecks, in which he brings the colors of his virtuoso band to full bloom in harmony with his voice, never more seductive. Here is a full range of Leonard Cohen’s work: new songs including the wickedly funny “Got a Little Secret” and “Never Gave Nobody Trouble”; luxurious performances of such Cohen masterpieces as “I Can’t Forget,” “Light As a Breeze,” “Night Comes On,” and a sublime “Joan of Arc”. Cohen also treats us to a gripping version of the Quebecois love song “La Manic,” performed before a captivated audience in Quebec City, and a moving tribute cover of the late country master George Jones’s “Choices.” These are songs and performances of the first order that you can’t forget. Can’t Forget gives listeners an extremely special glimpse into Cohen’s intimate rehearsal process, widely known to be in-depth ‘concerts before the concert!,’ heard by fans for the first time with this new record. Cohen continues to work with vocalists, musicians, producers and engineers who are the best in the business.

Della Mae

2015 sophomore release, the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated 2013 album, This World Oft Can Be. Della Mae’s self-titled second release for Rounder finds the all-female combo delivering 11 compelling new tunes that embody the musical and emotional qualities of the group’s prior output while venturing into uncharted creative territory. Produced by Jacquire King (Of Monsters and Men, Norah Jones, Dawes, Kings of Leon), Della Mae showcases the band’s emotional intensity and musical invention on such originals as ‘Boston Town,’ ‘Rude Awakening’ and ‘For the Sake of My Heart,’ as well as on vivid, insightful readings of the Rolling Stones’ ‘No Expectations’ and the Low Anthem’s ‘To Ohio.’ With an approach that’s steeped in tradition yet firmly rooted in the present, Della Mae draws from a well of influences to create vibrantly original music that conveys their expansive musical vision with timeless lyrical truths and a contemporary sensibility all their own, placing them alongside such young acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

JD Souther: Tenderness

JD Souther: Tenderness

After a 25 year performing hiatus, JD Souther returned to recording and live performance in 2008, blending his trademark Americana-influenced style with new flavors of jazz and blues. On Tenderness, he worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein who has produced albums for Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux, Herbie Hancock and Tracy Chapman, to name a few. Tenderness is a late-night masterpiece, haunting and wise and entirely reflective of the persona of this mysteriously brilliant American treasure. An architect of the Southern California sound and a huge influence on modern songwriting, J.D. Souther has written or co-written many of the Eagles hits including “Heartache Tonight,” “Victim of Love,” “New Kid in Town,” “Best of my Love,” Don Henley’s “The Heart of the Matter,” as well as the Eagles’ 2007 hit, “How Long.” Linda Ronstadt has recorded many of his songs, including “Faithless Love,” “Simple Man, Simple Dream,” and “Prisoner in Disguise.”

I drove my car in the middle of the night
I just wanted to see you so bad
The road was dark but the stars were bright
I just wanted to see you so bad
It didn’t matter what my friends would say
I was gonna see you anyway
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so bad
You were staying in a big hotel
I just wanted to see you so bad
I didn’t know you very well
I just wanted to see you so bad
We’d always talked on the telephone
But I’d never been with you all alone
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so bad
~Lucinda Williams


See you on the Avenue!
