Danny Newcomb & The Sugarmakers In-Store Friday!

Danny Newcomb & The Sugarmakers In-Store Friday!

Guitarist & vocalist Danny Newcomb is no stranger to those who follow Northwest music. In 1982, he and Mike McCready, Chris Friel, and Rick Friel formed Shadow, who put the pedal to the metal in Seattle before trying to make a go of it in L.A. When that didn't work out, Danny came back and formed Goodness with Carrie Akre, who released two powerful full-lengths on major labels before Danny & Carrie joined up with the other former members of Shadow (McCready - who was by then a member of Pearl Jam -  and the Friel brothers) to form The Rockfords. In Danny's own words, " I got a taste of doing what I wanted, but not how I wanted."

That time is now. Danny Newcomb & The Sugarmakers' debut release, Masterwish, is out now, and it is chock-full of brilliant catchy power pop. We are happy to welcome Danny & The Sugarmakers - Rick Friel, Eric Eagle, Fiia McGann and Ryan Burns - to Easy Street this Friday at 8pm to mark the release of their new 7" single, "One Wish," which is the first record on Mike McCready's new label Hockey Talkter Records! We will have a very limited number of the singles for sale the night of the event. Oh, and did you know that Mike plays on the b-side, "Sundays"? We hear that song might be on the set list.... Free and all-ages! Hope to see you there!

New Release Round-Up 09-04-15

New Releases - Friday 04 September 2015 


THE ARCS - Yours, Dreamily, - Nonesuch
The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, is released on Nonesuch Records. In anticipation of the release, “Stay in My Corner” was premiered on June 9 at NPR Music. Of the song, NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson praises, “…it's got a slinky, timeless feel, propelled with alluring ease by Auerbach's falsetto and a lush instrumental backdrop befitting The Arcs' roster.” The Arcs collaboratively wrote and recorded 13 tracks for Yours, Dreamily, with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally. Co-produced by Auerbach and Michels, the album was recorded in roughly two weeks through spontaneous, informal sessions across the country at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, the Diamond Mine in Queens, Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and in a lounge room at Electric Lady in Manhattan. Tchad Blake mixed the album on his horse farm in Wales.

UPCOMING RELEASES

BEN FOLDS - So There

BEN FOLDS - So ThereBEN FOLDS - So There - New West RecordsBEN FOLDS - So There
Ben Folds takes a turn on his forthcoming album, So There, available September 11th. He embraces strings and chamber music yet still maintains a passion for his love of pop. So There consists of eight chamber pop songs with the very talented yMusic Ensemble and a 21-minute piano concerto performed with the Nashville Symphony. Ben Folds meeting and recording with yMusic became the bridge between the classically themed concerto and the contemporary chamber rock songs that live in harmony on So There. The combination is an inspired body of work on both small and grand scales.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats - The Night Creeper Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats - The Night Creeper
New CD: $13.99   $11.99
The Night Creeper is the new album by Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. Contained within are ten tracks of the type of sonic psyche-frazzling heaviness and blood-drenched pop that have made Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats one of Britain’s great cult bands. Recorded at Toe Rag studios in early 2015 with engineer Liam Watson (White Stripes, Tame Impala, Electric Wizard), their fourth opus The Night Creeper finds the quartet in full-on death-tripping, third eye-widening mode. Here songs ooze louche evil over flesh-melting riffs that creep like hot magma bubbling up through the earth’s crust at their own malevolent pace. This album is in no hurry to destroy you. But it will. It will.

Peter Frampton - Now Peter Frampton - Now
New CD: $16.99   $14.99
Five decades into his career, Peter Frampton continues to innovate and entertain! Beginning his career with The Herd and Humble Pie in the 1960s, Peter Frampton stormed into the 70s as a solo artist, creating one of the best-selling live albums of not only that decade, but all time. A commercial and critical resurgence through the 80s and 90s brought him into not only another decade, but a new century. Now, originally released in 2003, was Peter’s 12th studio release. Proclaiming “I’m Back,” he addressed his longest gap between releases, and offered up a seriously strong collection of material. From riff-filled rockers to shimmering ballads and instrumentals, Now was not only a culmination of what made Frampton a superstar, but showed he was far from done creating. In addition to his iconic guitar playing, Frampton reached back into his history with Bob Mayo (who played in his Frampton Comes Alive band) on keyboards, and found a new songwriting collaborator in Gordon Kennedy – whose resume includes tracks recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, and a Song Of The Year Grammy for Eric Clapton’s “Change The World.” In addition to Now’s 10 originals, Peter pays tribute to his recently departed friend George Harrison with a searing cover of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” which not only captures the emotion of the original, but confirms Frampton’s stature as a guitar icon. Including liner notes from writer Scott Schinder, based on new interviews with Peter, this reissue is timed perfectly to coincide with Frampton’s first acoustic tour, through the fall of 2015. It is obvious that the time to revisit or discover this album is Now!
