ARCADE FIRE
EVRYTHING NOW (Night Version RSD Only)
$13.99(sale priced)
Arcade Fire have always made dance music. Consider Neighborhood #3 (Power Out), the most crushingly heavy relic of the disco-punk era. Recall Ready To Start, a propulsive rock song that never fails to get bodies moving. Behold the new wave glories of Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) and Black Wave/Bad Vibrations. What do you think happens when people get to the final section of Wake Up, when the clouds clear away and the sunlight comes streaming through and an elven victory parade breaks out? They dance! They dance joyously and shamelessly, with every last limb. The band has not trafficked exclusively in dance music, of course. Since their inception, Arcade Fire have been universalists with enough widespread appeal to unite a vast coalition of listeners, win a Grammy for Album Of The Year (a first for a release on an independent label), and headline festivals as a rock band at a time when festival-headlining rock bands are becoming an endangered species. Their discography contains multitudes, albeit painted in broad strokes.
MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA
BLACK MILE TO THE SURFACE
$11.99(sale priced)
A strange thing happened to Manchester Orchestra in the past few years: They became human. The band, led by millennial wunderkind Andy Hull, had been on a rise as meteoric as they come to upstart emo bands. The group landed a major label deal, the cover of Alternative Press and the fandom of Jesse Lacey, whose band, Brand New, took Manchester out repeatedly, gifting them a fanbase as rabid as any in rock and roll. Of course, all the buzz in the world wouldnt matter if the songs didnt deliver, and deliver they did: 2009s Mean Everything To Nothing was the new generations answer to Pinkerton, with the 2011 follow-up Simple Math serving as the best Built To Spill album Doug Martsch never wrote. Each record earned stacks of accolades, all of which were deserved.But then, Manchester Orchestra released Cope in 2014. It was the first Manchester album to feature a retooled lineup missing original bassist Jonathan Corley, and it was also the first Manchester album to simply be really gooda fine compliment, sure, but coming off of two legitimate five-star albums, it was something of a disappointment.
CAGE THE ELEPHANT
UNPEELED
$12.99(sale priced)
Cage the Elephant just announced Unpeeled, a new 21-track album of stripped-down renditions of some of the rock bands most beloved songs. Culled from shows in Nashville, Los Angeles, Knoxville, and Washington, D.C., among others, many of the tracks feature a string quartet in addition to instrumentation from the band themselves. Many times youre adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you dont realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song, Matt Shultz said in a statement. The band also shared a video for Whole Wide World, which was shot at Nashvilles Ryman Auditorium. Check out the video, Unpeeleds track listing and Cage the Elephants tour dates below.
ALICE COOPER
PARANORMAL (DIG)
$14.99(sale priced)
The first thing that jumps out is the crystal clear production. Even though it was produced by Bob Ezrin, the man whose fingers controlled the board on more than half of Alice Coopers early discography, dont expect to hear that warm Love It To Death or Billion Dollar Babies sound. Its almost cartoonish how clean it is. Production wise, it sounds more like Alices sleek 80s and 90s output, but dont start furrowing your brow yet. It has a lot more to it than the ballad soaked, aptly named Trash. Alice is still the ghoulish master of ceremonies. Holy Water spotlights Alices dark, vaudevillian storytelling with lyrics like, I got a top hat/and a walking cane/I gotta black cat/on a golden chain/I got a white shirt/with a bloody stain/Im going to the river of love. The shuffling and cruising rock of Dynamite Road is complimented by some outlandish lyrics about racing with the devil, and some lyrics that are believable, considering Alices recent touring schedule, My life is cruisin with my band, man/in my tricked out Cadillac/Were always lookin death right in the eye/and never ever lookin back.
