Friday’s New Releases, August 21, 2015

NEW RELEASES
for the week of August 21, 2015:

Wilco: Star Wars

Star Wars is Grammy-award winning Wilco’s ninth studio album and it’s first since 2011’s The Whole Love. Wilco is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary and has recently released two anniversary-related collections: Alpha Mike Foxtrot and What’s Your 20?. First Single: ‘Random Name Generator’


Jackie Greene: Back To Birth

Jackie Greene: Back To Birth

Greene’s seventh album and his Yep Roc debut – is more than worthy of some serious attention. The 11-song set showcases the multitalented artist’s uncanny knack for synthesizing his deep affinity for multiple American roots styles into timeless, personally-charged music. Armed with a persuasive voice, a vivid songwriting skill and an instinctive mastery of several instruments, Greene has carved out a unique musical niche, and Back To Birth marks another creative landmark in his already-compelling body of work.


Disturbed: Immortalized

Disturbed: Immortalized

After a four year hiatus, Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum hard rock titans Disturbed have announced their return in 2015 with their sixth studio album, entitled Immortalized. The album follows 2010’s gold-certified Asylum, Disturbed’s fourth consecutive #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and the group’s subsequent four-year hiatus, which gave members David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass] the necessary reprieve to make this imminent and deliberate return. The album includes the single ‘The Vengeful One’ as well as ‘The Eye Of The Storm’, ‘What Are You Waiting For’, ‘Save Our Last Goodbye’, ‘Who Taught You How To Hate’ and more.


Bon Jovi: Burning Bridges

Bon Jovi: Burning Bridges

the 13th album by AOR/arena rock band Bon Jovi. Burning Bridges is the first album without founding member Richie Sambora, who left the band in 2013. According to Jon Bon Jovi, the album serves as a “fan record” to tie in with an accompanying international tour: “It’s songs that weren’t finished, that were finished, a couple of new ones…” The first single, ‘Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning’, was originally written during The Circle sessions but finally finished for this album. The second single, ‘We Don’t Run’, is a drum and bass driven rock song.. Unlike the previous single, this song was written exclusively for Burning Bridges.


Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats

New release from the Denver-based outfit. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats practically explodes with deep, primal and ecstatic soulfulness. You don’t just listen to this record-you experience it. So it’s fitting that the self-titled album will bear the iconic logo of Stax Records, because at certain moments Rateliff seems to be channeling soul greats like Otis Redding and Sam & Dave. But as this gifted multi-instrumentalist honors the legacy of the legendary Memphis label, he’s also setting out into audacious new territory. Nathaniel and Co. Have previously released albums as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Wheel. Includes ‘I Need Never Get Old’, ‘Howling At Nothing’ and many more.


Wynton Marsalis: Live In Cuba

Wynton Marsalis: Live In Cuba

Live In Cuba captures nine-time Grammy Award-winner Wynton Marsalis and the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s dazzling first – and only – performances in Cuba, where they explored the profound connections between American jazz and Afro-Cuban music, from bebop to bolero and beyond. The historic concert is now another first: it’s the debut, double disc release from Blue Engine Records, a new label dedicated to preserving and promoting jazz. Recorded in front of clamorous, sold-out crowds over three nights at Havana’s Mella Theatre in October 2010, Live in Cuba finds the The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performing Ellington standards, Afro-Cuban numbers, and distinctly modern compositions from the band members. Live in Cuba is a document of two nations’ indelible cultural connections, of a journey into uncharted musical territory, and of some of the world’s most virtuosic musicians sharing a stage.


Rob Thomas: Great Unknown

Rob Thomas: Great Unknown

the highly-anticipated album from the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and Matchbox Twenty frontman. Produced by a remarkable roster of studio all-stars including longtime collaborator Matt Serletic, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Beyonce), Ricky Reed (Jessie, J, Jason Derulo, Twenty One Pilots), and Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta (American Authors), Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer, and accomplished songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists.


The Sword: High Country

The Sword: High Country

the fifth album by American heavy metal band The Sword. The album was recorded at Church House Studios in Austin, Texas with producer Adrian Quesada. Over the course of four weeks, they hammered out the album’s 15 tracks in the old converted church. High Country became new territory for The Sword, and they began doing things differently. That approach included more attention to backing vocals and harmonies, implementing more synthesizers and percussion elements, and tuning to E-flat instead of all the way down to C. As a result, the guitars stand out as more vital and vibrant than ever. The Sword’s impact continues to expand. 2012’s Apocryphon debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200, marking their highest entry on the chart. Since first emerging with 2006’s Age of Winters, the group has been extolled by everyone from Rolling Stone and The Washington Post to Revolver and Decibel. Metallica personally chose them as support for a global tour, and they’ve earned high-profile syncs in movies including Jennifer’s Body and Jonas Åkerlund’s Horsemen. However, High Country is the band’s biggest, boldest, and brightest frontier.


Ghost B.C. : Meliora

Ghost B.C. : Meliora

New release from the Swedish metal band. A band rife with contradictions, Ghost B.C. preach extreme Satanic viewpoints over surprisingly lightweight Heavy Metal, and it’s members maintain a strict vow of anonymity, both on record and on-stage, where they obscure themselves under monks’ cowls, except for their lead singer, whose skull-faced makeup, cardinal robes, miter and thurible reflect an anti-Pope, instead. As a result, the band’s rare concerts come across like an occult ritual, and their 2010 debut album, Opus Eponymous, totally defied expectations with it’s surprisingly accessible melodic rock sound, reminiscent of ’60’s Psychedelia, ’70’s doom, and ’80’s New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Just how long Ghost’s musicians will manage to keep their identities secret as their notoriety grows remains to be seen, but that only touches the surface of the band’s multi-layered enigma. While their identities were still cloaked in mystery, the band released their highly anticipated second record, Infestissumam, in early 2013, followed later that Autumn by the Dave Grohl-produced covers EP If You Have Ghost.


Linda Ronstadt: Just One Look

Linda Ronstadt: Just One Look

two CD collection from one of pop, rock and country’s finest vocalists. This chronological collection begins with Michael Nesmith’s timeless “Different Drum” as performed by The Stone Poneys featuring Linda, then jumps forward to the 1973 solo album Don’t Cry Now. From that point on, Just One Look touches on all of Ronstadt’s LPs through 1982’s Get Close. The collection then picks up with 1989’s smash Aaron Neville pairing Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind and concludes with tracks from 1993’s Winter Light. Just One Look includes key hit singles from this period including “You’re No Good, “Tracks of My Tears,” “Heat Wave,” “Blue Bayou,” “It’s So Easy” and “Just One Look.”


Dr. Dre: Compton

Dr. Dre: Compton

Compton (also known as Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre) is the third studio album by American Hip-Hop recording artist, bully, woman abuser and mogul Dr. Dre. “During principal photography of Straight Outta Compton, I felt myself going to the studio and being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” Dre.

I am an American aquarium drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I’m hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you?

Let’s forget about the tongue-tied lightning
Let’s undress just like cross-eyed strangers
This is not a joke, so please stop smiling
What was I thinking when I said it didn’t hurt?

I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
Take it from the inside, baby hold on tight
You were so right when you said that I’ve been drinking
What was I thinking when I said good night?

I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn
You’re quite a quiet domino, bury me now
Take off your Band-Aid because I don’t believe in touchdowns
What was I thinking when I said hello?

I’d always thought that if I held you tightly
You’d always love me like you did back then
Then I fell asleep and the city kept blinking
What was I thinking when I let you back in?

I am trying to break your heart
I am trying to break your heart
But still I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t easy
I am trying to break your heart

Disposable Dixie-cup drinking
I assassin down the avenue
I’m hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you?
~ Wilco
