Amazon Says: Beta Love marks Ra Ra Riot's first outing as a four-piece. Inspired by their lean new lineup (with Wes Miles on vocals, Milo Bonacci on guitar, Mathieu Santos on bass and Rebecca Zeller on violin), the recording process found the band members expanding and re-defining their roles within the new makeup of the group. They built upon demos created mostly by Miles and producer Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, Wavves) at Sweet Tea Studios in Oxford, MS. Joined by session drummer Josh Freese (Devo, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer) the band enjoyed exploring its potential, experimenting with new influences and exciting sounds. less...

Amazon Says: Originally independently released on September 25, 2012, Concord Records will give Live at the Blue Note Tokyo Koz's first-ever live album its wide distribution physical release on February 12, 2013. Recorded in Japan in 2011, the disc features a dozen songs, including such hits as "You Make Me Smile," "Faces Of The Heart," "Honeydipped" and "Put The Top Down." Live at the Blue Note Tokyo has also been nominated for a GRAMMY® award in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. "I feel so fortunate to have spent my professional life on the road, touring all over the world, doing shows for almost 25 years now," Koz says. "I love it. I ve gotten to see many amazing places, learned so much, and met so many truly wonderful people. A lifetime on the road...it s been a real blessing. This CD, my very first live record, captures one magical night of that lifetime and I wanted to share it with you." less...

Amazon Says: "Get Ready" is a spirited and distinctive tour-de-force of pop/ rock/soul Gospel that captivates listeners from beginning to end. From the instantly memorable piano-driven pop melody of "Heaven" to the swirling throwback in-the-pocket rhythm of the title track and lush melodic song of worship "You Can Do Anything", the songs alone are remarkable selling points from this otherwise "debut" group. "All of our songs are born out of our 9 A.M. family devotions," says father Dewitt. God-breathed, indeed. less...

Amazon Says: Four years after Cantando, a new album from the Bobo Stenson Trio recorded in Lugano last December explores a broad arc of material. Here we find: free playing (the trio has its own, fresh approach to collective improvising), tunes by Bill Evans (Your Story, offered here as a tribute to Paul Motian, for whom this tune was a favourite) and by George Russell (Event VI from Living Time, another piece associated with Evans), Danish composer Carl Nielsens Oft Am I Glad, a Norwegian hymn (in an arrangement by Anders Jormin and folk singer Sinikka Langeland), contemporary composition by Norways Ola Gjeilo, a Wolf Biermann protest song, Argentine composer Ariel Ramírezs folkloric La Peregrinación, and more. Wide-ranging repertoire has become a hallmark of Bobo Stenson recordings. But its not just the eclecticism that is striking: Bobo Stenson, Anders Jormin and Jon Falt take their far-flung sources and make of them an organic music that sings with its own voice. less...

Amazon Says: British breakthrough band The Virginmarys are a powerhouse trio who've spent the past two years tearing through Europe with a sound the BBC hailed as "raw, intoxicating rock and roll in the finest traditions of the genre." Kerrang! hailed the group with a four-star review, praising them for "channeling the pure rock grooves of Zeppelin; tight, explosive and wired." They arrive on this side of the pond with their fiery full-length debut, King Of Conflict, produced by Toby Jepson and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Pixies, Foo Fighters). The big, bouncy and bombastic album captures The Virginmarys at their thrilling best. less...

Amazon Says: Frightened Rabbit is among the most acclaimed bands of the 2000 s, earning wide-ranging critical applause and a fervent international fan following with their emotionally exhilarating melodies and scathingly frank lyricism. The band's 2010's full-length, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks (FatCat Records), was met with unanimous acclaim both here and at home. The Guardian's Dave Simpson declared that "(Scott Hutchison's) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs - with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention - have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountain...This is the sound of a band upping their game." What's more, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks was selected by NPR listeners as one of their "50 Favorite Albums of 2010. " As moving and triumphant on stage as they are on record, Frightened Rabbit has performed countless headline shows, as well as sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Modest Mouse and Atlantic labelmates Death Cab for Cutie. The band has also won over audiences at a scope of international festivals, including Glastonbury, T In The Park, Oxegen Festival, and Latitude in the UK, Australia's Splendour in the Grass, and our own Lollapalooza and South By SouthWest (SXSW). less...

Amazon Says: The Sea and Cake deliver an album with the freshness and energy of a new band, and the ease and musicianship that can only come with experience. Runner began as the companion piece to 2011's The Moonlight Butterfly, and using that album's sonic experimentations as a starting point for a new process of writing and recording, became something completely new. Songs that began as synthesizer experiments in Sam Prekop's home studio were reimagined by the other members, and eventually recorded and mixed by John McEntire at Chicago's Soma Studios. The result is an album that feels like a private travelogue. Start listening at one place, and end up some place else. Cherishing the unexpected mysteries around every corner. less...

Amazon Says: 2013 release from Solange Knowles, younger sister of mega superstar Beyonce. While she may share the same musical genes with her sister, Solange takes her music in a different direction than that of her big sis. Using Soul music as her foundation, Solange adds a retro '80s influence to her sound while still managing to keep the production modern and engaging. She doesn't aim for the same commercial heights as Beyonce, but by doing things her way, perhaps she'll het their by doing things her way. less...

Amazon Says: Grimes is the moniker of Canadian producer, singer and artist Claire Boucher. She approaches music in a way that is both sensually pleasurable and exploratory; sonic experimentalism run through a 'pop' filter. The music is youthfully schizophrenic and searching, a voyage into the yet undefined territory of post-internet, re-spiritualized sound. Grimes strongly values a physical and communal experience of music (it's danceability), experimental vocalization, and psychedelia. Grimes is self-indulgence, devastation and ecstasy. humanity, spirituality, escapism, identity, reality. less...
