Speaking about the new album, which is based on a more traditional singer-songwriter style, the artist otherwise known as Daniel Woolhouse commented: "It wasn’t a conscious decision. But I've become more accepting of my voice, so it's more prominent now, which led to structuring the songs in a more classic way. I also wanted people to hear the lyrics. It's a process of being more upfront and honest." The album is available now for Pre-Order and you can watch the video for the lead single Two Hearts here.

Cold War Kids - Hold My Home

Looking ahead to next week's chart, we are excited to present an Early Listen for Hold My Home, the fifth studio album from American indie rock band Cold War Kids which comes just a year after 2013's Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. The record was produced by guitarist Dan Gallucci alongside Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta and Juliette Lewis) at the band's own studio in San Jose, California. The album is available now and you can watch the video for the lead single All This Could Be Yours here.




Bush - Man On The RunMarking 20 years since their multi-platinum debut Sixteen Stone catapulted them to megastardom, Man On The Run, the sixth studio album from the British alternative rockers Bush is the follow-up to 2011's The Sea of Memories and the second to feature the new lineup which frontman Gavin Rossdale formed in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Mastodon) and Jay Baumgardner (Helmet, Lacuna Coil), the album sees the quartet continue with their patented heavy, dark, melancholic grunge rock sound. The album is available now and you can watch the visually stunning video for the lead single The Only Way Out here.



On NostalgiaAnnie Lennox pays tribute to some of the greatest artists of the 20th century – including Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – and interprets compositions that have moved her, stripping them down to their emotional and musical core and making them her own. "To have been given the opportunity to record these classic, timeless songs on such a significant label as Blue Note, representing 75 years of legendary jazz history, is truly a privilege for me," said Annie Lennox.

The definitive Primus line-up Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and releasing their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, Primus & the Chocolate Factory. 'The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film,' says Les Claypool. 'The notion wasn't so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books.'

Tough Love is the second album from English singer Jessie Ware. The London-based artist began work on the album at the start of 2014, with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Kid Harpoon, Julio Bashmore, and production duo Benzel all credited on the record. Her title track single was debuted as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record on the Earth, and went on to reach the U.K. Top 40.

Sleater-Kinney - Start TogetherSleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist, left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest. Start Together is a deluxe box set compiling all seven of Sleater-Kinney's critically-acclaimed albums, plus a 44-page hardcover book and an art print. Each LP is on a different color of vinyl, and this box is the only way to get these albums on colored vinyl. Each album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.  The Limited Edition box set is available now and you can also grab copies of the individual albums which are available as remastered CD and Vinyl versions. Check out this video to see more info on the releases.

Plus there are other great, new releases including The Bsst Day, from Thurston Moore.  The fourth full-length solo release for the Sonic Youth guitarist/singer sees the return to guitar rock with backing from Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe, and James Sedward. Hip Hop megastar T.I. drops his ninth studio album Paperwork. London based Bear's Den release their much anticipated debut album Islands.  Wallflower is a collection of songs from the late 60's to present day that inspired Diana Krall in her early years. Kiesza releases her debut album, Sound Of A Woman.  Her hit single Hideaway rocketed to the #1 spot in the UK charts earlier this year and remains the fastest-selling debut of year. When Sunn O))) first approached Scott Walker about appearing on their 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, they didn't know what it would actually lead to. Four years on, Scott returned with something even more enticing, collaborating on Soused, a body of work he was writing with them in mind. And the masked Iowan nu-metal heroes Slipknot return with their fifth studio album 5: The Gray Chapter, their first in six years and the follow-up to 2008's All Hope Is Gone. It is the first to feature their new (and as yet anonymous) rhythm section, following the departure of drummer Joey Jordison and the untimely death of bassist Paul Gray. Marking a return to a more raw, brutal, dissonant sound reminiscent of their earlier work, the album includes the singles "The Negative One" and "The Devil in I."

New Release Round-Up 10-07-14

New Release Round-Up 10-07-14

Stevie Nicks releases her collection of never-before-released songs, 24 Karat Gold - Songs from the Vault. “Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul… They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories - the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box; These songs are for you.” – Stevie Nicks.

Standing In The BreachJackson Browne's fourteenth studio album, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.

Weezer appear to be back on form as they return with their first collection of new material in four years.  Everything Will Be Alright In The End was Produced by Ric Ocasek, who previously helmed production on the band's first and third records (The Blue Album and The Green Album).  Also for those who grab the album early we have some Free Lithographs to give you as a reward.

It's not often that you stumble across a songwriter whose lyrics both sound and read like poetry. When those lyrics are set to music that balances burning indignation with lilting tenderness, and delivered in a voice imbued with the spiritual passion and yearning of gospel and the blues, you figure you've chanced upon something special. And so it is with 23-year-old Andrew Hozier-Byrne, an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from County Wicklow who goes by the name of Hozier.

The Barr Brothers - Sleeping OperatorThe Barr Brothers.  'Sleeping Operator' represents an immense creative output. The group, featuring brothers Brad on guitar/vocals and Andrew on drums, classical harpist Sarah Pagé, and pianist/bassist Andrès Vial, recorded 40 tracks in the process of making this record. The 13 songs on 'Sleeping Operator' are meditative and explosive, exploring the far reaches of folk laced with West African influences, hypnotic modernist pulsing and beyond. While the record extends into cinematic and other-worldly territories, it maintains a campfire-like intimacy throughout. The album is available now and you can preview the album and watch the video for their single Half Crazy here.



Sixx AM - Modern VintageSIXX: A.M., the band featuring Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx alongside guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael, release their third album, Modern Vintage.  Says Sixx: "Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, SIXX: A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics — three core elements that helped to define that era. SIXX: A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on 'Gotta Get It Right' and the rest of 'Modern Vintage', having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again." The album is available now and you can preview the album and watch the album's making of video in which they discuss the new album and their latest single 'Gotta Get it Right' here.

Philip Selway - WeatherhouseWeatherhouse is the sophomore solo album from Radiohead's drummer Philip Selway, and the follow-up to 2010's Familial. A more complex and involving album than his mostly acoustic debut, Weatherhouse, has something of the feel of latter-day Radiohead or Yorke's solo work but with an uncategorizable '80s/'90s melodic twist. The single "Coming Up for Air" is included. The album is available now and you can preview the album and watch the video for his latest single It Will End In Tears here.


Plus there are other great, new releases including Flying Lotus with You're Dead! Which is a shamanic pilgrimage into the psychedelic unknown of the infinite afterlife. A sonic, visual and metaphysical fusion of technological innovation and technical virtuosity that amounts to a transcendent, mind-expanding plasm that could only exist between our world and another.  Johnny Marr's upwards trajectory continues unabated with the release of Playland. Work on the album commenced in London in spring 2014 as soon as the year of touring in support of The Messenger came to a close. It finds Marr continuing the creative connection that was forged on The Messenger with collaborator and co-producer Doviak, as well as the other musicians who performed on the album and accompanying tour. Macy Gray's impressive catalog of work is filled with highlights. She has released six studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations. The Way is a beautifully crafted pop and R&B masterpieces that is sure to reinforce Gray's reputation as the ground-breaking and innovative artist that she has been since day one. Yellowcard's latest release, Lift a Sail, is their most modern album to date. While Sean Mackin's distinctive violin persists, setting the band apart from their contemporaries, Lift a Sail doesn't fail to bring the rock with tunes like Crash the Gates and MSK. The follow up to Infinity Overhead, which reached #31 on the Billboard 200 as Minus The Bear's highest charting album to date, Lost Loves lives up to its title quite literally as a collection of hard to let go songs pulled from the band's past seven odd years of writing, recording and releasing records. And The distinct sound and integrity of Kasabian's fifth studio album defines the very essence of the band, their trademark sound distilled and re- packaged into one incredibly exciting, unique statement of intent. 48:13 is driven by the continuous evolution and musical experimentation of the band through their previous 4 albums.

Video
Compilation from electronic punk-hop duo from Nottingham. Black, standard weight LP includes download card. Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic situations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performances, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London and trod the boards there for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009.

Dream Ritual - Dream Ritual [Vinyl] Dream Ritual - Dream Ritual [Vinyl]
As soon as 6131 Records heard Springfield, Missouri's DREAM RITUAL they immediately knew they wanted the band to join their roster. Fortunately for the label, this impressive new group agreed and planning quickly began for the release of their debut EP.

Hemingway - Pretend To Care [Vinyl] Hemingway - Pretend To Care [Vinyl]
Digital: $9.99
Lots of bands have been mining the fertile landscape of '90s music for inspiration lately, and HEMINGWAY is no exception. What sets this Portland, Oregon band apart though is what they're tapping for influence, reaching deep into the lesser known realms of that decade and extracting elements of infectiously melodramatic pop. Think Silver Scooter, Superdrag, and Knapsack, yet filtered through nearly two decades of collected dust and bargin bin obscurity. Some might call the music HEMINGWAY creates 'emo' but to do so relegates their heartfelt creations to something less than genuine and authenticity is something this band has unmistakably.

Lily & Madeleine - Fumes Lily & Madeleine - Fumes
From the beginning, the Lily & Madeleine's calling card has been the breathtaking and intuitive union of their voices. When the two come together in ecstatic and seamless blood harmony, it's a sound that continues to haunt long after the songs are sung, leaving an electrical charge behind like a sparkling tracer in the air. When they step out individually as vocalists, Lily's warm, smoky alto is the counterpoint to Madeleine's crystalline, bell-like soprano.
Ben Ottewell - Rattlebag Ben Ottewell - Rattlebag

On his newest record, Rattlebag, Ottewell once again collaborated with childhood friend and his Shapes & Shadows writing partner Sam Genders, previously of Tunng. Simultaneously stripped-down and lush, Rattlebag is a collection of beautifully poetic tales of salvation and redemption, of sanctuary and braving rocky seas in search of distant shores. Ottewell s infectious melodies and bluesy riffs will stick with you.
Drgn King - Baltimore Crush Drgn King - Baltimore Crush
Digital: $8.99
On Drgn King s second album they tell the story of growing up in Baltimore, The songs revolve around a community of disenfranchised kids looking for kicks while trying to make a world they can call their own. An underground punk scene in a church basement flourishes until drug abuse and other mayhem derails their DIY dream. Baltimore Crush trips through time, re-visiting rock 'n' roll ghosts, churning in the undertow of the present and imagining worlds to come. Angela's guitar playing is matched by Ritz Reynold's keyboard soundscapes and a dynamic rhythm section that drive the songs home.
Mono - The Last Dawn Mono - The Last Dawn
The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness are a pair of new albums by MONO. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story. No strangers to narratives, the twin albums explore familiar themes for the band: Hope and hopelessness, love and loss, immense joy and unspeakable pain. Those elemental parts of life and the complicated relationships they create have never been more resonant through MONO's music than they are here. The Last Dawn is the first of these two companion albums, and is the "lighter" of the two.
Mono - Rays Of Darkness Mono - Rays Of Darkness
The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness are a pair of new albums by MONO. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story. It is MONO's blackest album ever, a collection of scorched riffs, doom rhythms, and an unexpected contribution from post-hardcore pioneer Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy. The album ends with the smoldering wreckage of distorted guitars and ominous drones playing out a eulogy to the days when MONO shot blinding rays of light through seemingly endless darkness.

Rancid - Honor Is All We Know [Vinyl w/CD] Rancid - Honor Is All We Know [Vinyl w/CD]
Rancid s 2014 record Honor Is All We Know is much like their other records in the sense that it is filled with the stories and characters that populate the band s lives, and reflects the cultural and political climate in which it was written and recorded. It has classic Rancid songcraft: two minute songs packed with melody, personally empathetic and politically denunciatory. But Honor Is All We Know is also unique in that it is filled with the growing insight of a band who has been doing this for a while now: it feels natural and organic, written without an agenda or a bone to pick, rather the culmination of lives lived largely with a keen interest in the world and a sense of brotherhood.
Chris Webby - Chemically Imbalanced Chris Webby - Chemically Imbalanced

Based on Time Krabbe's The Golden Egg, The Vanishing is a deeply disturbing psychological thriller about a young man's search for his girlfriend after she disappears at a rest stop during a short trip. Over the course of three years, the man obsessively searches for her, using his spare time to put up posters and leave handbills, hoping that someone will give him a clue to the mystery surrounding her disappearance. The kidnapper, having watched the man for some time, is intrigued by his increasing obsession and finally contacts him.
