New Albums Out Today: Lianne La Havas, Antony and the Johnsons, Niki & the Dove and More

Posted by Billy Gil, August 7, 2012 07:14pm | Post a Comment
liane la havasLianne La HavasIs Your Love Big Enough?
 
Liane La Havas’ debut is the kind of globally appealing pop record that comes along so rarely. The title track has the funky bounce of a Meshell Ndegeocello track with a big pop vocal that could land it on radio stations across the dial, while the catchy “Forget,” with its alternately belted and cool chorus, suggests a rockier Kelis. It’s La Havas’ ballads, though, where she often shines brightest. On “Lost & Found,” her lyrics are so bleak that it’s almost shocking (“You broke me and taught me to truly hate myself,” begins the chorus), given how sprightly she sounds elsewhere. Shades of classic soul (“Au Cinema”), bossa nova (“No Room For Doubt”) and jazz (“Age”) color other tracks, while somehow it avoids becoming a mishmash of unmatched ideas — everything sounds ideally effortless and true to La Havas’ identity. It’s a dynamic and addictively listenable debut that poises the 22-year-old as one of 2012’s breakout stars and one who could deliver quality records for years to come.
 
antony johnsons cut the worldAntony and the JohnsonsCut the World
 
Antony Hegarty’s latest release consists of live performances of his work with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra. As a collection it is a consummate summation of the incredible work put forth by Hegarty and his collaborators over the course of four albums, as well as some of the messages threaded throughout Hegarty’s music. The title track, which begins the album, is a stunning piece created for The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic, a theatrical representation of the life of the renowned performance artist. Hegarty then launches into a speech labeled “Future Feminism” which puts forth ideas Hegarty has represented in his music — of ecology, queer identity and feminism, exploring the idea of matriarchal forms of government being the hope for a humanity, even with the rise of Sarah Palin, as it ties to the moon, menstrual cycles and religion. It’s a fascinating, sprawling discourse that provides a setting for highlights from Hegarty’s catalog, including “Cripple and the Starfish,” “Another World” and “I Fell in Love With a Boy,” the long pause of which grows more chilling given the song’s more lush presentation. It’s by no means a greatest hits selection — no “Hope There’s Someone” or “Aeon,” for instance — but it’s a great reinterpretation of material that actually calls for such orchestration. Antony’s quivering voice soars over ballooning strings, and we’re reminded of the healing power possessed by these songs of loss and hope.
 
niki and the doveNiki & the DoveInstinct
 
Niki and the Dove create a sort of fantasy pop on Instinct. It sounds beamed in from an alternate futuristic universe of space tribes and robotic unicorns. In a more corporeal sense, the electronic pop duo drum out tribal beats electronically and unleash claustrophobic chants on “The Gentle Roar,” one of their strongest tracks. Vocalist Malin Dahlström sounds lost in the forest of metallically lush sounds created by keyboardist Gustaf Karlöf on “Mother Protect.” She comes on like one of Prince’s many protoges on the slow funk of “Last Night,” singing intoxicatingly, “last night we got married in a back seat.” Niki and the Dove share some qualities with their Swedish brethren — the warped, chirpy vocals of The Knife/Fever Ray; the space-age disco of Robyn; the alternately dark and naïve introspection of Lykke Li; and yes, the operatic drama of Welsh band Florence & the Machine. However, lyrically and vocally, Dahlström harkens back to Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks in a truer sense than some of her contemporaries — when she’s left spinning through a digital wilderness among the lovely surroundings of “Tomorrow,” you feel like you’re out there with her.
 
elle varnerElle VarnerPerfectly Imperfect
 
Glossy yet classy pop R&B with some surprises — take the fiddle (!) running throughout “Refill.” That song and its refrain (“Can I get a refill of your time?”) are a lot of fun, while other tracks leave a more lasting impression, like the incredibly soulful “Sound Proof Room,” in which Verner’s vocals sound like they could burst through any sound proof that would hold her.
 



 
redd krossRedd KrossResearching the Blues
 
Red Kross return after a 15-year absense from releasing music with Researching the Blues. The album balances its tunefulness and bite as well as on classics like Third Eye, sounding beamed in from another time as the album finds the band doing what they do best — no ill-fated electronic experiments here, just heavy melodic rock, from the garagey title track to the surprisingly delicate power pop of “Dracula’s Daughter.” Kneel before Redd Kross! 
 



JovanottiItalia 1988-2012
 
Italian singer, songwriter and rapper Jovanotti gets the retrospective treatment on Italia 1988-2012. Producer Ian Brennan selects songs and remixes some from across Jovanotti’s 12 albums to present a modern presentation of the Italian superstar. As you might expect from such an expansive time period from someone most American audiences haven’t heard, the sounds vary quite a bit here. “Con la luce negli occhi” is a haunting, spare acoustic rap of sorts that feels removed from time — its folksiness and eerie asides make it feel like something out of a Spaghetti Western. Just a song later, we get the bouncy, Gorillaz-esque pop of “Sulla frontiera.” The wild ride across Italia’s 12 tracks gives us just a snippet of his legacy, but the glimpse they offer make the case for Jovanotti as the rare artist of another language who can connect to English-speaking audiences, given the widely appealing nature of the production and Jovanotti’s ease with meshing folk, rap and classic Italian pop.

 
janka nabayJanka Nabay & The Bubu Gang En Yay Sah
 
Sierra Leonean singer Janka Nabay teams up with a bunch of Brooklyn musicians (from Chairlift, Skeletons and other bands) to create hypnotic “bubu” music, a rare form of African music built around quick pulsing beats. The other musicians add backup vocals, throbbing bass, African-inspired guitar lines and vibrant organ and synth sounds to Nabay’s songs. Doing the research is fine and all, but you don’t have to in order to enjoy tracks like “Eh Mane Ah.” Put it on and you won’t be able to sit still.

New Albums Out Today, New Ones Coming in July/August

Posted by Billy Gil, July 3, 2012 06:36pm | Post a Comment
Today saw the releases of new albums by Belle & Sebastian member Stevie Jackson, comedian Doug Benson and a 7” from Animal Collective, among others. Check out what’s out today and what’s coming down the pipe:
 
Stevie Jackson
Stevie Jackson – (I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson
 
(I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson makes a name for itself quite outside of Belle & Sebastian, coming off like the next in line of a lineage of singer-songwriters who exist on their own terms, from John Cale to Brian Eno to Elvis Costello. Far from just being twee, Jackson rocks out to a new wave beat on “Try Me,” singing “I got pills and I’m lookin’ for thrills/At the same time I want to start a family.” The distinctive, reverb-laden lead guitar he lends Belle & Sebastian is on songs like the lovely display on the Kinks-y “Richie.” And even at his most clearly indebted to Summer of Love-era rock, he creates a varied and thoroughly rewarding listen, notably on the swinging, Mamas & Papas-style “Where Do All the Good Girls Go?”

Doug Benson – Smug Life
 
Huge pot fan and hilarious comedian Doug Benson releases two different versions of the same jokes on Smug Life, both performed on April 20 (4/20!) at the same club. It plays like a case study in how varied performances of the same material can yield such different results — in one case, you hear a comment yelled from the audience that gets incorporated into the joke in the later performance.

out this week 10/12 & 10/19...Belle & Sebastian...Antony & the Johnsons...Sufjan Stevens....Morrissey Bona Drag 20th Anniversary

Posted by Brad Schelden, October 28, 2010 01:16pm | Post a Comment
sufjan stevensOctober is always one of my favorite months. I love when summer starts to go away and it starts to get cold again. We have been having some October rain out here in Los Angeles that has been fabulous! This also means that Halloween is right around the corner! Many labels save their big releases for the end of the year, which also makes this time of year exciting for those of us that love music. October 12th is a big release day -- three of my favorite artists have releases on this date! It's almost too much to handle! Sufjan Stevens, Belle & Sebastian, & Antony & the Johnsons all have new albums -- all in one day! I have been patiently waiting for Sufjan to continue his series on all the 50 States. He gave us the brilliant Illinois and Michigan and then nothing else. I am of course wanting California and New York, but also all the States in between. I am hoping that he has actually been working on them in secret. He just continues to release these other albums to distract us, right? But then in a couple of years he will release a comprehensive 50 state box set. It will have an album for each state and also contain 2 7"s for the commonwealths and it will come with a puzzle. I could even be satisfied with an album of 150 songs with 3 songs for each state -- just give me something, Sufjan! A 7" for each state would also be amazing! His new album is called Age of Adz. I sort of had a strange reaction to it at first. It incorporates some electronics and at times sounds like a Lil Jon album...but it is still Sufjan, and I still love it. I just takes a couple of listens.

Belle & Sebastian
's new album Write About Love also took a couple of listens to fall in love with. I was sort of still on my Belle & Sebastian high from seeing them in Vegas. And I do love the contest they ran to get fans to write about love. There are some great songs on Write About Love for sure but I really could have lived without the Norah Jones duet. I know this band is both easy to love and hate. Some people are very proud of their hatred of the band. I am one of the lovers of the band and I always will feel the same.

Antony & the Johnsons also has a new album called Swanlights. I still think that Antony sort of peaked at I Am a Bird Now in 2005. The new album is still good. It is just not great. I don't keep going back to it for more like I did with his first two. I still think he has some more briliant albums in him; I am not giving up on him yet. And I will also not give up on this album. There has just been a lot out this year to distract me. I still might love it yet! And Antony is absolutely brilliant live so perhaps getting to see him perform might just make me fall in love with the new material.

One of my recent favorites, Zola Jesus, also just released a new album, Valusia. The album is also known as Stridulum II. And yes, there is a Stridulum I. It is hard to believe that Nika Rosa Danilova, the woman behind Zola, is only 21. She has already done so much. She is like a more dreamy or shoegazey version of Siouxsie. It is music made for me and I love it! I am now a Zola Jesus fanatic and collector, trying to get my hands on everything she has put out. This is some amazing stuff! Thank you, Zola Jesus!

Can you believe Bona Drag was released by Morrissey 20 years ago? I am having a hard time grasping that Morrissey has been in my life for over 20 years already. I was in 10th grade when Bona Drag was released. By that point I was a full time Morrissey fan but it had really only been a year. I was too young to be a Smiths fan when The Smiths actually existed. But I was in 8th grade when Morrissey's first solo album, Viva Hate, was released in 1988. It took me a couple of years to really get into Morrissey and The Smiths but by the time Bona Drag came out in 1990, I owned every album that I could find. I honestly always thought that Bona Drag was a new album. It had 12 new songs on it that had not been on any other albums yet. "Suedehead" and "Everyday Is Like Sunday" had both already appeared on Viva Hate but everything else was new to me. I was just happy to have a new Morrissey album to call my own. He had been putting out a ton of singles and had a bunch of unreleased songs so putting out Bona Drag was a smart idea, but Kill Uncle was just right around the corner in 1991. Bona Drag included some of my favorite Morrissey songs of all time: "Piccadilly Palare," "Interesting Drug," "November Spawned a Monster," "Ouija Board, Ouija Board," and "Lucky Lisp." I basically love every song on this album. It is my favorite Morrissey album or collection or whatever you want to call it. The 20th Anniversary Edition is all remastered and repackaged and includes some great bonus tracks. I can't really think of anything more exciting than hearing a song for the first time from 20 years ago that you never heard before. I was not really a singles collector back in 1990 -- that phase in my life didn't come until a couple of years later when bands like Blur, Pulp, and Suede put out about 10 singles every year all with amazing b-sides. So hearing the bonus tracks on Bona Drag was pretty awesome. The first bonus track is "Happy Lovers at Last United." This is an outtake from the "Everyday is Like Sunday" sessions. The next track is "Lifeguard on Duty." This is a track from the Viva Hate sessions. The album also includes "Please Help the Cause Against Lonliness," "Oh Phoney," "The Bed Took Fire," & "Let the Right One Slip In."

Bona Drag still holds up as a brilliant collection of songs. It is reissued as both a CD and an LP and is just an import at the moment but I imagine a domestic release will be sometime soon. And maybe those Smiths reissues that we are all hoping for will finally happen too! What we all really want is a box set by The Smiths. I have my Cure and Siouxsie box set; I have my Depeche Mode boxes and my Joy Division box set; Jesus & Mary Chain and New Order have great boxes as well; but what we really need is The Smiths box set! Somebody please make this happen! I know I will most likely never see a Smiths reunion show but at the very least I would like deluxe 2CD reissues from all albums by The Smiths and Morrissey and one amazing comprehensive box set by The Smiths. I also wouldnt mind seeing Hulmerist, The Malady Lingers On, Live in Dallas, and Oye Esteban on blu-ray! But wouldn't a reunion by The Smiths be amazing? One can dream. I do have some friends that I idolize that actually got to see them live. I imagine a whole month of performances for this reunion show. You know that some of us would go to every single one. Maybe something like a month of performances at the Greek or the Orpheum? I would even fly to London for something as amazing as this. I never thought that I would get to see Yaz or My Bloody Valentine but they both had reunion shows in the last couple of years! Stranger things have happened. But for now at least you can enjoy this reissue. It is just as fantastic as you remember. It has been 20 years but it really does feel like just last week that I listened to my Bona Drag cassette for the first time. It was a friend's tape that I listened to on a cassette player during our lunch break at high school. I went out and bought my very own copy that weekend. Morrissey, I love you. And thanks for being in my life for over 20 years!

out this week 8/10 & 8/17 & 8/24...blonde redhead...conan o'brien...antony & the johnsons...sufjan stevens

Posted by Brad Schelden, August 26, 2010 12:20pm | Post a Comment
It is hard to believe that September is almost here -- it seems like summer just started! But before we know it the kids will be back in school and we will all be getting ready for the holiday season. I love this time of year... The end of summer, I mean. I was actually one of those weird kids who didn't mind going back to school. I looked forward to the end of summer and the beginning of fall and winter. The award season is also right around the corner and the Emmy Awards are this Sunday! I am thinking they are actually going to be very funny this year since they are hosted by Jimmy Fallon. I do still love Jimmy Fallon from his SNL days. I am rarely up late enough to catch his show but I do like it whenever I manage to watch it. I still think that Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon should host the Oscars together. And yes, the Oscars are also right around the corner -- the Oscar nominations will be given out January 25th and the actual Oscars will be on February 27th!
                                                                                                                                                                        
It has been a couple of slow weeks for music new releases. Arcade Fire week was amazing a couple of weeks ago but it was all sort of downhill after that. Now things are getting exciting again this week! The great end of summer albums are coming out and there are some fantastic albums right around the corner to get us through the end of the year. Additionally, there are some exciting new EPs and singles and 7"s out this week. No Age put out a new single called "Glitter" on 12" and 7". They have a new album, Everything in Between, out on September 28th. Blonde Redhead released "Not Getting There" as a 12" this week. They are one of my absolute favorites who never let me down and I can't get enough of them! They have a new album out on September 14th called Penny Sparkle. I still remember the first time I heard Blonde Redhead. That girl has one of those amazing voices and I have never heard anyone like her. Glad to have them back in my life! I assume by now that everyone has heard them but if you haven't, check out A Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons and In an Expression of the Inexpressible first.


One of the coolest and weirdest releases this week is by Conan O'Brien. Jack White has released a new 7" from Conan on his very own label, Tconan o'brien 7"hird Man. Yes, you heard it right -- Conan has released a 7" single! I can't really remember the last time a late night show host put out a single or an album. I do own a couple of Joan Rivers albums...but it has been a while. The A side is "And They Call Me Mad?" It is basically a spoken word sort of storytelling. Conan tells a Frankenstein story in the style of Vincent Price. The B side is a previously unreleased interview with Conan and Jack White. It is actually more of Jack White interviewing Conan. I don't know about you, but I am super excited about the new Conan show. Team Coco! I actually really have not watched hardly any late night since Conan left the Tonight Show. I don't really know anyone who likes Jay Leno and I am getting a bit bored of David Letterman. I am ready for Conan to be back in my life! The new show airs on TBS in just a couple of months. The date is November 8th, so mark your calendar. I can't wait! I will be patiently waiting for the Jimmy Fallon 7". Or maybe a Jenny Jones or Sally Jessy Raphael 7"! I for sure think that Oprah should put out a 7"! Come on, Oprah! It is the last year of your show! I would probably buy an Oprah/Whitney Houston split 7".
                                                                                                                                                                       Also out this week is a new EP from one of my other favorites, Antony & the Johnsons! Antony releasesantony & the johnsons Thank You For Your Love as a CD EP. The vinyl version will be out in a couple of weeks. The new full length album is called Swanlights and is out October 12th. As you would expect, I can't wait. I fell in love with Antony when Amoeba Hollywood first opened. He was just starting to become a little well known. His first album was released on Durtro at the time and then later reissued on Secretly Canadian. It was one of those albums that you really only had to listen to once to fall in love with. He really seemed like he came from a different period in time. Somebody really could have told me that they had uncovered some recording from some husky lady vocalist from the 1940's. His vocal style is sort of amazing -- imagine a goth version of Nina Simone. I know Nina is already sort of goth! Maybe imagine Marc Almond or Alison Moyet mixed with Nina Simone. It is that good. You can't help but be physically and emotionally affected after listening to an Antony & the Johnsons album. I knew he would eventually get more popular over the years -- he was just too good to be ignored. He has gone on to record 2 more full lengths for Secretly Canadian. His first album was self titled, then I Am A Bird Now came out in 2005 and The Crying Light came out in 2009. He also released many singles and EPs over the years. The Another World EP came out in 2008 before his last full length. This new EP is also a sort of teaser for the new album and I am in love with it. I am just glad that we don't have to wait until 2011 for a new album! Anyway, Thank You For Your Love is a bit on the sad side, which is probably why I love it. It also includes a brilliant cover of "Imagine." Antony! Thank you for your love! I like to think that this EP is a thank you to his fans like me for our love for him. I am just so glad Antony decided to give us the gift of his music. If you have never seen this guy perform live, you simply must do it. His shows are up there on my list of my favorites. They are magical experiences.
