NEW RELEASES
for the week of June 2,2015:

Florence + the Machine: HB3

Florence + the Machine: HB3

Florence + the Machine: HB3
How Big How Blue How Beautiful Produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, the third album by Florence + the Machine is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways. In voice and, ultimately, outlook Florence has never sounded better.


 

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie
Helmed by Nelson’s longtime producer, collaborator and friend Buddy Cannon, Django and Jimmie premieres 14 brand-new studio recordings including: “Django and Jimmie,” a dual tribute to jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, country music’s mythic “Singing Brakeman”; the reflective and meditative “Live This Long”; “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash,” an homage to country music’s original Man in Black featuring guest vocals from Bobby Bare; a sublime interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”; and the future outlaw country classic “Unfair Weather Friend,” written by rising songsmiths Marla Cannon-Goodman (Buddy Cannon’s daughter) and Ward Davis. A legendary country music producer and songwriter in his own right, Buddy helped pen five of the album’s tracks. Among the 14 essential recordings on Django and Jimmie, Nelson and Haggard each pay musical tribute to the other through heartfelt solo performances: Willie singing Merle’s “Somewhere Between” and Merle covering Willie’s “Family Bible.”.


 

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands
2015 album by the Los Angeles-based outfit. All Your Favorite Bands, produced by David Rawlings, is Dawes’ fourth studio album. Dawes has been lumped into genres such as folk-rock and Americana yet they belong to no specific musical trend. Like The Byrds, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Warren Zevon, Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash, the melting-pot that is California has informed their sound and created something that rises above any musical movement. Like Wilco, The Jayhawks and other like-minded bands, Dawes do not let labels define them. Dawes is composed of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Tay Strathairn (keyboards).

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man
Highly anticipated 2015 release. Currency of Man is an intensely creative milestone, transcending musical distinctions of jazz, blues and R&B, to offer a stirring social and musical statement. On the album, Melody joins forces again with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein. This striking musical partnership saw their last collaboration, 2009’s My One and Only Thrill, sell over 1.5 million copies, and produce songs that have become modern classics. Currency of Man marks a substantial leap forward indeed, as we see Gardot take her gift for songwriting in a completely different direction to her last record, the critically acclaimed release The Absence.


 

Jamie xx: In Colour

Jamie xx: In Colour

Jamie xx: In Colour
The eleven track LP includes previous releases ‘Girl’ and ‘Sleep Sound’ as well as forthcoming single ‘Loud Places, ‘ which features vocals from Romy Madley Croft. The release of In Colour comes on the back of an incredible six year creative period for Jamie xx, which has seen him alternate effortlessly between his role as founding member and producer of The xx, and creator of more electronic and club orientated music as Jamie xx. A string of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single ‘Far Nearer, ‘ remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Florence & The Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus We’re New Here – Jamie’s seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s final studio album – hinted at what was to come. With In Colour – a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations with The xx band mates Romy Madley Croft (‘Seesaw’ and ‘Loud Places’) and Oliver Sim (‘Stranger In A Room’), Young Thug and Popcaan (‘Good Times’) and Four Tet (‘Seesaw’) – Jamie delivers his definitive artistic statement.
