Amazon Says: Label Description: For a long time if you wanted to hear the most exciting new band in Britain, you knocked on a tall black door off the Lambeth Road. An aging British Rail building - part art studio happening, part squat Studio 180 was where south London's Palma Violets were gestating, away from sunlight and the world at large. A thrilling rock'n'roll four piece channeling The Clash, ? and the Mysterians, and the Bad Seeds, from September 2011 they were holed-up here writing songs "their friends could dance to" and occasionally putting on celebratory, ecstatic parties about which word quickly spread. less...

Amazon Says: Throughout her career, Ani DiFranco has given her own take on tired rock star cliches. When other artists answered to major labels, she opted to start her own. While other guitarists relied on electric heroics, she pounded on a strangely tuned acoustic. And when faced with the task of releasing a career retrospective, Ani created anything but the traditional "greatest hits" package. With Canon, the double-disc set, fans will get an unprecedented look at how the artist sees her prolific career, and newcomers will get the ultimate primer in DiFrancology. Because like everything else she creates, Ani made this record to her precise specifications, carefully selecting 36 songs from her voluminous back catalog, including tunes from her first album and her 19th. less...

Amazon Says: "After doing the soundtrack for the 2010 Scott Pilgrim video game, New York 8-bit geniuses Anamanaguchi dove headfirst into the recording of their second album. Three years (and many ideas, plans, and diversions) later, the 22-song Endless Fantasy finally saw the light of day in early 2013 on their own dream.hax label. All the time and effort put into recording the music paid off in the end, and the album is something of an 8-bit masterpiece. The band uses hacked Nintendo systems, Game Boys, and live instruments to make (mostly) instrumental music that is blindingly bright and insanely fun. ... It's a one-stop shop for all the goofy sounds, frenetic energy, and fast-paced fun one music fan can handle. Anamanaguchi may not have invented chiptune or 8-bit music, but they've pretty much perfected it."--Tim Sendra, allmusic.com. less...

Amazon Says: This second full-length partnership of Jon Foreman (Switchfoot) and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Fiction Family Reunion, sees two distinctive artists offering up their blend of folk, pop, and songcraft. Foreman and Watkins became friends at their hometown festival, San Diego's famed Street Scene. Convening at Switchfoot's Spot X Studio in Carlsbad, CA for a series of sessions, the band produced themselves, keeping it intimate and organic. The first single "Up Against the Wall" notes the influence of The Band's "The Weight," as Fiction Family's attempt to find that same DNA. less...

Amazon Says: Detroit. Willesden. Olympos, on the Greek island of Karpathos. "The inside of our skulls. " These are the places that make up Holy Fire, Foals third album, their most direct and fully realized album yet. Foals have stepped up from, as Yannis puts it, "songs for indie clubs" to something much, much bigger. Their third album might not sound like Depeche Mode or Nine Inch Nails, but it has much of the same ambitious spirit and grandiose aesthetic that led to those groups touching the lives of millions. This is the sound of Foals arriving. less...

Amazon Says: Before Huey Lewis and The News formed in 1979, the group's members had already worked in bands such as Clover, Soundhole, and Sly & the Family Stone, as well as with Elvis Costello and Van Morrison's bands.

Amazon Says: Parquet Courts are a New York band. Throw out the countless shallow Brooklyn bands of the blasé 2000's: Light Up Gold is a conscious effort to draw from the rich culture of the city - the bands like Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground that are not from New York, but of it. A panoramic landscape of dilapidated corner-stores and crowded apartments is superimposed over bare-bones Americana, leaving little room for romance or sentiment. It's punk, it's American, it's New York... it's the color of something you were looking for. less...

Amazon Says: This is Grammy-winning singing legend Doris Day's first studio album with fresh material in 17 years; 13 songs of a timeless quality including 10 previously unreleased recordings produced by Day's late son, Terry Melcher, plus a trio of Day classics.Doris Day has been fully involved with the musical selections for this special album, which hit the top ten with its advance release in England. Her son Terry Melcher -- who was known as a producer for folk-rock pioneers The Byrds and other artists -- co-wrote three of the new songs with the Beach Boys' Bruce Johnston: the emotional title track "My Heart", the romantic "The Way I Dreamed It" and the haunting "Happy Endings" sung by Melcher with a newly recorded spoken-word introduction by Day.Also included is the rhythmic radio single "Heaven Tonight" plus three classic rock-era favorites: Joe Cocker's ballad "You Are So Beautiful", the Lovin' Spoonful's joyful 1966 hit "Daydream" and The Beach Boys' nostalgic "Disney Girls", the latter written by Bruce Johnston, who co-produced three of the recordings on the album.Exclusive to this U.S. edition is the debut release of the traditional folk ballad "Stewball", which appropriately connects with Day's devotion to animals. The trio of vintage classics Day has selected for this album are "My One & Only Love" with the Andre Previn Trio, the biographical "Ohio" from the stage musical "Wonderful Town" and the standard "My Buddy" from Day's film "I'll See You In My Dreams". Rounding out the set is the bouncy showtune "Hurry It's Lovely Up Here" from "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever". less...

Amazon Says: Nightmare Ending is the first proper Eluvium album released since 2010's Similes, the unexpectedly vocal-heavy ambient-pop record that simultaneously delighted and confounded longtime fans. But the Nightmare Ending story actually began years earlier, as it was intended to be the follow-up to the watershed album, Copia. Conceived as a way of helping loosen his self imposed ideals of perfection, Cooper labeled each Nightmare Ending track as either a "dream," or an "imperfection" a way of differentiating the philosophical concept of "dream vs. reality." less...

Amazon Says: At a time when most female singer-songwriters perform as alter egos, Eleanor Friedberger is simply, refreshingly herself. And that's just the way her fans like it. Having spent a decade fronting the indie-rock institution The Fiery Furnaces with her brother Matthew, in 2011 she emerged as a formidable solo artist with Last Summer, a thoughtfully crafted tale of memory and place couched in the organic pop of her '70s idols. less...

Amazon Says: 2013 debut album from New Zealand singer/songwriter Ella Yelich-O'Connor AKA Lorde. It'd be easy to mistake Ella for a seasoned tunesmith from the American South, one who carries a heavy heart that's been ravaged by careless men over time. But in truth, Lorde recorded these songs as a 16-year old Kiwi championed by the likes of Perez Hilton and Grimes. She has a timeless knack for songcraft with a sophisticated pop savvy that most people over 30 can't find without collaboration. Lorde needs no collaborative hacks -- she writes and sings her own songs. Even when she sings in her higher vocal range about teenage politics, Lorde carries herself with the grace and poise of someone like Beth Orton. less...

Amazon Says: 2013 debut from the singer/songwriter and former model. Let's get this out of the way first - Carmen Villain used to be a very successful model. Her face has appeared on the covers of Vogue and Nylon, and high profile cosmetic ad campaigns. It turns out Carmen Hillestad (Carmen Villain) has been a spy in the house of fashion. Behind the scenes, she was channeling her frustrations into a set of songs with a defiantly DIY underground free-rock sound. Now she's stepping off the glossy page and emerging as a major new songwriting voice and multi-instrumentalist. Behind the angelic face lurks a villain. With acid in her airbrush, she reminds us of This Heat, Bikini Kill, Sonic Youth, Royal Trux less...

Amazon Says: A sumptuous body of work, Tales Of Us has been two years in the crafting and is their most narrative, cinematic and intimate recording to date. Nothing in their accomplished back catalogue has hinted at the new lyrical breadth that the band have introduced to Tales Of Us. All the songs except for one are named in the first person with a cast list of evocative character sketches, the contrary love affairs, the suspense, hallucinations, fairy tales and modern folklores documented and the traces of redemption they find in song take the poetry of Goldfrapp s delicately considered music somewhere brand new. less...

Amazon Says: Earnest, plainspoken and single-minded, Jay Farrar has amassed a sizable and distinctive body of work since coming on the radar with Uncle Tupelo in 1987. The Search, the fifth album by the St. Louis-based artist under the Son Volt nameplate, takes Farrar's signature juxtapositions of the arcane and the modern to provocative extremes, contrasting the blue highways of a disappearing cultural landscape with a perilous world in which the center no longer holds - a world of information overload, of clueless leaders carrying out sinister agendas, of "Hurricanes in December - earthquakes in the heartland/Bad air index on a flashing warning sign," as the artist sings ruefully on "The Picture." The Search's 14 songs locate and vividly portray the prevailing modes of the human condition in the first decade of the 21st century: cynicism ("Beacon Soul"), reflection ("The Search"), restlessness ("L Train," "Highways and Cigarettes"), yearning ("Adrenaline and Heresy"), paranoia ("Automatic Society"), despair ("Methamphetamine") and conditional hopefulness ("Underground Dream," "Phosphate Skin"). By turns melancholy and exhilarating, the album further cements Farrar's status as one of rock's most eloquent chroniclers of contemporary existence. less...

Amazon Says: Then Play On was Fleetwood Mac s 1969 debut on Reprise. This expanded and remastered edition features the original U.K running order and track segues, with "One Sunny Day" and "Without You" making their first appearance on a CD issue of the album, as well as new liner notes by veteran rock journalist David Fricke and four bonus tracks, including the revered single "Oh Well Pt. 1," which boasts one of the great guitar riffs in rock history and has been covered by likes of Billy F Gibbons, Jimmy Page, and Tom Petty. Fleetwood Mac was already a popular blues band in 1969 when they released Then Play On, the group s stellar third studio album. It was the first with guitarist-songwriter Danny Kirwan and ultimately its last with founding member Peter Green.
