New Release Round-Up 01-27-15

New Releases - Tues. 27 Jan 

GOV'T MULE - SCO-MULE - Evil Teen Records 
Gov’t Mule
 release Sco-Mule , which spotlights two 1999 shows that the original trio of Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts played with jazz guitarist John Scofield.  The Atlanta performances, which also featured keyboardist Dr. Dan Matrazzo, have been widely traded, discussed and revered by Mule fans for 15 years.


PAPA ROACH - F.E.A.R. - Eleven Seven Music
This eighth album from the nu-metal survivors is their follow-up to 2012's The Connection. Expanding upon the electronic edge first introduced on that album, this release sees Papa Roach turning in another fan-pleasing slab of melodic, industrial-tinged pop-metal. The singles "Warriors" and "Face Everything and Rise" are included.

Danny Kroha - Angels Watching Over Me

Danny Kroha - Angels Watching Over MeDANNY KROHA - ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME - Third Man Records
As a mainstay on the Detroit music scene and founding member of the Gories, Danny Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention. With his first full-length release under his own name, it may come as an unexpected turn that he’s dealing in classic gospel and folk songs. Playing every instrument himself, the end result is a collection of compelling, timeless traditional songs. With Angels Watching Over Me, Kroha firmly establishes himself as one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre in desperate need of someone with his creativity and vision in moving forward the classic American art form.


THE LONE BELLOW - THEN CAME THE MORNING - Descendant Records
Then Came the Morning, the second album by the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based indie-folk trio The Lone Bellow, opens with a crest of churchly piano, a patter of drums, and a fanfare of voices harmonizing like a sunrise. It’s a powerful introduction, enormous and overwhelming, as Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin testify mightily to life’s great struggles and joys, heralding the morning that dispels the dark night: “Then came the morning! It was bright, like the light that you kept from your smile!” 


PUNCH BROTHERS - THE PHOSPHORESCENT BLUES - Nonesuch
After working with T Bone Burnett numerous times—most recently on the soundtrack for the Joel and Ethan Coen film Inside Llewyn Davis and the related Town Hall/Showtime concert Another Day, Another Time—Punch Brothers decided to join forces with the multiple Grammy Award–winning producer for their new record. Last summer, the band and Burnett spent a month at Hollywood’s Ocean Way Recording laying down the songs that guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjo player Noam Pikelny, mandolinist and lead singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher had written during several writing “retreats” last winter and spring.


Venom - From The Very Depths

VENOM - FROM THE VERY DEPTHS - Spinefarm
Venom - From The Very DepthsFrom The Very Depths is the brand new album and 14th overall release from Venom, the originators of Black Metal!!! “This album is perfect, all three members are totally over-the-top confident with the new songs and the production,” says Venom frontman Cronos. “We had a great atmosphere in the studio while we were recording. Dante created pure thunder from his drums, while Rage tears the flesh off your face with his riffs, making everything fall into place so well. It’s a strong release and really shows the band maturing into an unstoppable force of pure Black Metal. We can’t wait to play the new songs live for the Legions… Hell Yeah!”

UPCOMING RELEASES

Father John Misty - I Love You Honeybear

Father John Misty - I Love You HoneybearFATHER JOHN MISTY - I LOVE YOU HONEYBEAR - Sub Pop
I Love You, Honeybear was recorded from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles. 'There’s a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn. The songs are a narration of my experience falling in love. My ambition was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love, the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons with an imprint that is undeniably my own. Blammo'.

He finally makes the leap on The Simple Truth, his solo debut and maiden voyage with Yep Roc Records.

Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love 

Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love

SLEATER-KINNEY - NO CITIES TO LOVE, Sub Pop Records
No Cities to Love
 is the first album in 10 years by Sleater-Kinney (guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein, vocalist/guitarist Corin Tucker, and drummer Janet Weiss), who came crashing out of the '90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk's political insight and emotional impact. Formed in Olympia, WA in 1994, Sleater-Kinney were hailed as "America's best rock band" by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006. No Cities to Love was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator John Goodmanson.

Ryan Bingham - Fear And Saturday Night

Ryan Bingham - Fear And Saturday NightRYAN BINGHAM - FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT - Thirty Tigers
Recorded mostly live with a brand new backing band Fear And Saturday Night shows Ryan Bingham facing down his past with a poetic grace throughout. The lead single Radio is about coping with a darkness that does not want to let go, searching for a safe place to make sense of your life and the strength to stay on the right track through it all. Some of the most affecting moments on the album are in the harmonica-driven wistful waltz Broken Heart Tattoos, a song written to an unborn child, and in the title track, Fear and Saturday Night. Those hard-learned lessons, through both good times and bad, helped make Bingham the man he is today. Fear And Saturday Night is the most authentic, personal, and deeply moving portrait of that man we have heard yet.
