    RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway

    RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom HighwayRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway - NonesuchRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway
    Freedom Highway, Grammy Award–winner and 2017 Grammy nominee Rhiannon Giddens follow-up to her highly praised debut album Tomorrow Is My Turn, is released by Nonesuch Records. The record includes nine original songs Giddens wrote or co-wrote while she and her band toured after Tomorrow Is My Turn's 2015 release, along with a traditional song and two civil rights-era songs, "Birmingham Sunday" and Staple Singers' well-known "Freedom Highway," from which the album takes its name. Giddens and the band will tour the U.S. in the spring.

    CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH - The Tourist - Clap Your Hands
    The Tourist nods to Alec Ounsworth's musical heroes--a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. ''Better Off'' and ''The Vanity Of Trying'' are lush, keyboard-augmented songs, while ''A Chance To Cure'' and ''Ambulance Chaser'' are rhythmically askew, and the sighing ''Loose Ends'' is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock.

    THE FEELIES - In Between - Bar/None Records
    Impose Magazine recently called The Feelies “… one of the most influential bands in the history of alternative and underground music” and Rolling Stone said that they are “a template of formal perfection.” They have influenced bands like REM, Yo La Tengo, Real Estate and WEEZER, Now during their 40th anniversary comes In Between their first album of all new material in over 6 years. While working the VU template they are famous for this album brings some interesting new sonics into the mix. The album is both quieter and decibolically furious than anything they’ve ever done.

    PISSED JEANS - Why Love Now - Sub Pop
    Pissed Jeans have been making gnarly noise for 13 years, and on their fifth album, Why Love Now, the male-fronted quartet is taking aim at the mundane discomforts of modern life—from fetish webcams to office-supply deliveries. "Rock bands can retreat to the safety of what rock bands usually sing about. So 60 years from now, when no one has a telephone, bands will be writing songs like, 'I'm waiting for her to call me on my telephone.' Kids are going to be like, 'Grandpa, tell me, what was that?' I'd rather not shy away from talking about the internet or interactions in 2016," says frontman Matt Korvette. Pissed Jeans' gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit make the band—Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)—a release valve for a world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo itself. Why Love Now picks at the bursting seams that are barely holding 21st-century life together. Take the grinding rave-up "The Bar Is Low," which, according to Korvette, is "about how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and music. There's no guy that isn't a total creep." 

    ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War

    ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The WarALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War - New West RecordsALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War
    Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons) and mixed/engineered by UK-bred young-gun Eddie Spear, All The Witches' Sleeping Through The War is the quartet’s most bold and well-crafted record to date. The album’s creation marks the first time in the band’s history that a record was written before entering the studio. This process allowed for an alignment of the band’s art, desire and time. Convening in Nashville for only six days after a year of relentlessly touring their New West Records debut Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, the band’s spirit coalesced in a rhythm of statement and melody that simply needs to be heard...repeatedly. With the guidance of Cobb and Spear, Sleeping Through The War captures the truest energy of the group, full blast, fun and contemplative. The record was made with volume in mind. Sleeping Through The War is meant to be played loud, cranked up and without reservation. Feel it live through your stereo system or listen to it speak in tongues through your headphones. The sounds are nothing without the songs, and the songs are nothing without the lyrics. This record is a result of constant touring, world travel, overstimulated/divided humanity, and a learning of awareness and compassion.

    LITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker

    LITTLE BIG TOWN - The BreakerLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker - Capitol NashvilleLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker
    Little Big Town release their seventh studio album, The Breaker (Capitol Records Nashville). The album, produced by Jay Joyce, features lead single, Better Man, written by Taylor Swift, and is currently climbing the charts at radio. The Breaker is about letting go of things that break you, it's about the new ground you try and break as a human being and as a musician. Sometimes you're the one that's broken and sometimes you re the breaker, said Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. It's a sentimental record because we're feeling super grateful for our friends and family and the chance to share the next chapter.

    UPCOMING RELEASES

    DIA FRAMPTON - Bruises

    DIA FRAMPTON - BruisesDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises - Nettwerk RecordsDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises
    Dia Frampton writes cinematic pop that inspires and pulls at the heart. She has spent the past ten years building towards this moment, beginning at just fifteen with her sister (in Meg and Dia) and enchanting millions on a then-upstart show called The Voice. Her new music draws from all of the elements she has learned from - soaring pop vocals, orchestral grandeur and a never-ending DIY spirit. The aptly titled Bruises is the sophomore solo album. Set for release on March 3, the 12 songs form an autobiographical narrative arc that intersperses light and dark, traveling from self-doubt to fierce determination and will reconnect her with her large fanbase (400K combined social reach) to showcase her more mature sound. Her last album RED debuted at #1 on the Heatseekers chart.
