New Release Round-Up 05-27-16


New Releases Fri 27 May
 


THE MONKEES - Good Times! - Rhino
The highly anticipated new album by The Monkees, Good Times!, is the band's first new album in 20 years and tied to their 50th anniversary and extensive North American tour. Good Times! finds all three surviving band members (Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork) taking turns on lead vocals, playing a wide range of instruments, and sharing new compositions. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal on the Neil Diamond-penned "Love To Love." To produce the new album, the band found the perfect musical co-conspirator in Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy). Schlesinger also wrote "Our Own World" and co-wrote the album's finale with Dolenz, aptly titled "I Was There (And I'm Told I Had A Good Time)." Much like The Monkees' early albums, Good Times! features tracks written specifically for the band by some of the music world's most gifted songwriters, including Rivers Cuomo of Weezer ("She Makes Me Laugh"), Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie ("Me & Magdalena"), Andy Partridge of XTC ("You Bring The Summer"), as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller ("Birth Of An Accidental Hipster").

CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN - The Ride - Capitol
The most exciting new band to burst through in the UK, Catfish And The Bottlemen are poised for a breakthrough stateside with their new D. Sardy-produced album, The Ride. The band's debut album, The Balcony, is headed towards platinum in the UK and recently earned them a 2016 Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act.

LACUNA COIL - DeliriumLACUNA COIL - Delirium - Century MediaLACUNA COIL - Delirium
Delirium was recorded at BRX Studio in Milan between December 2015 and February 2016. The effort was produced by Lacuna Coil bassist and main songwriter Marco "Maki" Coti-Zelati, with engineering by Marco Barusso and additional assistance from Dario Valentini. Coti-Zelati also created the artwork for "Delirium", which is based on an atmospheric session captured by Italian photographer Alessandro Olgiati.

DIERKS BENTLEY - Black
DIERKS BENTLEY - Black - Capitol NashvilleDIERKS BENTLEY - Black
Multi-Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has never had to follow trends; he challenges them and creates his own.

Early Listen Available Video Available 



THRICE - To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere - Vagrant Records
Thrice has been a staple in the alternative/modern-rock world for over fifteen years. A band known for effortlessly and continuously releasing groundbreaking records, their discography has sold over a 1.5 million copies, and they’ve toured the world with acts like The Deftones, Coheed & Cambria, Rise Against, Circa Survive and Brand New. Thrice released their first proper full-length, Identity Crisis, in 2001 and quickly stormed to the forefront of the indie music scene as listeners rejoiced and formed what can only be described as a cult following. The band went on to release seven highly praised albums, and now, after a three-year break from writing and touring, the Southern California quartet are back with To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowheretheir first studio album in almost five years.

MILES DAVIS & ROBERT GLASPER - Everything's Beautiful - Sony Legacy
Everything's Beautiful brings Miles Davis's sound into the 21st century, blending a diverse group of master takes and outtakes from across Miles' incredible tenure with Columbia Records (1955-1985) with original reinterpretations. Robert Glasper produced the collaboration. "I didn't want to do just a remix record," Glasper noted when discussing the 11-song set. "My idea was to show how Miles inspired people to make new art."

Enter To Win Tickets To Islands!

Enter To Win Tickets To Islands!

On May 13th, Islands dropped not one but TWO albums! The first, described by the band as "a demented interpretation of pop music, with a focus on synthesizers and drum machines," is called Taste. The second, "an attempt at rock n’ roll, with live-off-the-floor performances" is titled Should I Remain Here At Sea. We're guessing they'll perform some of both when they hit the stage at the Tractor Tavern on June 3rd. Wanna go? Enter to win tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "Taste" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 6/1. Good luck!
