Amperland, NY (CD)


Pinegrove's new album features reimagined versions of tracks from over the band's career -- a treat to their longtime fans. It's also the soundtrack to a film by the band about their home in upstate New York, affectionately dubbed Amperland. The 20+ tracklist is a deep dive into the band's wistfully angsty sound, expressed through indie rock and emo guitar, with alt-country banjos and pedal steel. There are swelling melodies and strong dynamics to spare, drenched in a dreamy atmosphere. Opening track "Moment" encapsulates the overall feel for new fans -- shimmering, propulsive and dramatic.

The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo (CD)

Mr. Bungle

It’s the first new release from Mr. Bungle since 1999…kinda. The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo is a rerecording of the group’s impressive 1986 high school thrash metal demo, performed by OG Bungle members Mike Patton, Trey Spruance, and Trevor Dunn, along with Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Dave Lombardo (Slayer/Dead Cross). With roots in the late ‘80s hardcore, punk, and metal scenes, these eleven scorching tracks feature pounding rhythms, punishing riffs, and intense vocals. It’s crazy to look back at what these guys were already capable of even in their teens and see the direct routes to what they would become in Mr. Bungle. Turn it up loud!

Lost Themes III: Alive After Death (CD)

John Carpenter

Created with his son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies, John Carpenter's Lost Themes III: Alive After Death is his first album of non-soundtrack music in nearly five years. The 2016 release of  Lost Themes II was a comeback for the beloved director/composer, but since then he scored the acclaimed 2018 version of Halloween and has continued to delight music lovers and movie fans with his creepy, ominous, synth-heavy creations à la "Alive After Death." But these tracks conjure dramatic movie scenes as well as that kind of sinister crawl: "Weeping Ghost," for example, has an exciting forward motion to it and "Skeleton" is pulsing and dynamic.

The American Negro (CD)

Adrian Younge

Producer Adrian Younge has released a timely multimedia project consisting of a short film, podcast and the album The American Negro . The latter is ambitious and fiercely intelligent, pairing intense spoken word with chorused vocals to address racism in America. Younge performed all the instruments and vocals himself, except for the orchestra/chorus, and the music is exuberant soul and jazz with a vintage flair. Both "Revolutionize" and the title track feature syncopated, mesmerizing beats with solid bass grooves and soaring strings and voices.

120,000 Stories (CD)

Nobuko Miyamoto

Nobuko Miyamoto, singer/songwriter, theatre actress and activist, releases her first new album since 1997, 120,000 Stories . In addition to new songs, the album includes reimagined versions of older ones and tracks from her 1973 debut with Chris Kando Iijima and William “Charlie” Chin, A Grain of Sand: Music for the Struggle by Asians in America . Songs like the folky "Not Yo' Butterfly" - which shares a name with her upcoming memoir - directly address exoticism and sexism in punchy, singsong vocals. "What Time is It On the Clock of the World" is more theatrical and features some bluesy harmonica, but it's just as up front about its message: the dangers of climate change. There's no doubt that Miyamoto's activist spirit remains earnest and strong.

Becoming (Music from the Netflix Original Documentary) [Score] (CD)

Kamasi Washington

Kamasi Washington's soundtrack to Becoming , the Michelle Obama Netflix documentary, is just what you might expect from the talented saxophonist and the subject matter: classy and uplifting smooth jazz. The title track is soulful with a little retro swing and "The Rhythm Changes" is lightly funky, like the theme song for a smart '70s TV series. "Provocation" stands out for its ominous, dramatic chords and flurrying swells, but the highlights here might be "Southside V.1" and "V.2." The related tracks will put a smile on your face with their feelgood optimism. Remember "Hope"?

The White Stripes Greatest Hits (CD)

The White Stripes

Here's an unexpected gift from The White Stripes, the quirky duo that shook up the world of alternative rock back in 1997, and introduced us all to the prolific Jack White -- a greatest hits album. The "siblings" behind that scrappy hit "Fell in Love With a Girl" went on to win four Grammys and go platinum with 2001's White Blood Cells . The Greatest Hits double album is an appropriately non-obvious set that goes beyond the standard collection of singles, including lesser known tracks like "The Nurse" from Get Behind Me Satan . But the album does wrap up with the anthemic "Seven Nation Army" and kicks off with their very first single, "Let's Shake Hands," just like at their concerts.

The Blue Of Distance (CD)

Elori Saxl

Composer Elori Saxl's debut album is a beautiful set created with chamber instruments, samples of water and wind sounds that have been digitally processed, and analog synths. These pieces feel more like stories than your average ambient music, often building on layers and movement rather than meditative stillness. "Wave II" for example feels as if it's steadily propelling itself forward and even the peaceful "Wave I" maintains a walking melody throughout its warbly atmosphere. With The Blue of Distance , Saxl has painted an intriguing, living landscape that blurs the natural world with technology.

K.G. (CD)

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's new album KG serves as a sort of Volume 2 for 2017's Flying Microtonal Banana . Embracing classic psych-rock's Eastern music influences, while adding plenty of modern indie rock and world music flavors, the Aussie band delivers on a grand scale with epic, soundtrack-ready numbers like "Automation." "Straws In The Wind" is an intriguingly groovy and ominous track while "Ontology," with its near-frantic rhythm, is celebratory and danceable. There are even shades of desert blues rhythms like in "Minimum Brain Size," contrasted with hazy, Stones Roses-style vocals. Lots of good stuff here on this furiously eclectic and accomplished set.

Believer (CD)


Norwegian electronic duo Smerz follow up two EPs with their full-length debut Believer . The album is eclectic and absorbing, centered around their soft, intense vocals. There are some style similarities to The Knife and Fever Ray, the latter especially in the murky, repetitive title track. Songs like "The favourite" are unexpectedly elegant and orchestral, while "I don't talk about that much" is swirling and intricate techno. The instrumental closing track, "Hva hvis" feels like one long, haunting exhalation, from somewhere out in the elements.

Arctic Monkeys Live At The Royal Albert Hall (CD)

Arctic Monkeys

Back in 2018, Arctic Monkeys performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London and admirably donated the proceeds to War Child, which supports children in conflict areas. Now the audio recording of that concert is available as a double album, also in support of the foundation, featuring a fun setlist that includes tracks from each of their six studio albums. The evolution over the years of this beloved British band's sound is encapsulated here with full rock-star energy, making this a must-have for fans, especially those that haven't made it to a show.

Cuttin' Grass - Vol. 1 (The Butcher Shoppe Sessions) (CD)

Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson's Cuttin' Grass Vol. 1 is an album of over 20 previously recorded tracks from this wild card country artist rearranged as bluegrass numbers. Performed with artists like Sierra Hull, Stuart Duncan, and Tim O’Brien, these tracks from Metamodern Sounds in Country , A Sailor's Guide to Earth and more thrive in their new setting with exquisite, intricate picking, lively fiddle and lush backing vocals. The already lovely "Breakers Roar" is sped-up here without losing its sense of melancholy, and lifted into euphoric folk. "I Don't Mind," a straightforward country-rock number from Simpson's previous band Sunday Valley, is softer and sweeter here with its sorrowful fiddle, but there are plenty of danceable tracks like "Life Ain't Fair and the World is Mean." For fans of Simpson's ever-fluctuating sound as well as lovers of folk and bluegrass.
