COLD WAR KIDS
LA DIVINE
$12.99(sale priced)
ts taken from the bands sixth studio album L.A. Divine, which is out on April 7th and described as an ode to their hometown of Los Angeles. Of the single, Nathan Willett says: Its about supernatural love looking for inspiration and meaning, surrendering to feeling, love calling out your name and that journey we must go on to find it. Its video was as should be expected then shot in downtown LA, at St. Vincent Court to be exact, with director Phillip Lopez in attendance.This follows 2014s Hold My Home, which Live4ever said made clear that the Kids have matured in both sound and in songwriting: Throughout their career, the band have always been hard to categorize and theyve often resisted any label that may get thrown at them, but there is a quiet and mature confidence to Hold My Home which can only be achieved through years of experience.
NEW PORNOGRAPHERS
WHITEOUT CONDITIONS
$13.99(sale priced)
Carl Newman's songwriting has always been immaculately constructed, and to the point of seeming mechanized. But on 2014's Brill Bruisers and, now, Whiteout Conditions, the New Pornographers's seventh album, it's no longer just Newman's compositions that sound like they were mathematically engineered by a highly intelligent computer program. The band's whole sound has become increasingly artificial-sounding, dominated by whizz-bang electronic bells and whistles and robotic vocal effects. While the band has always gussied up Newman's hooks with all manner of ear-candy window dressing, Whiteout Conditions is the first New Pornos album where the arrangements are just as much of a focal point as the melodies. The title track's DayGlo synths are as attention-grabbing as Newman's evocatively anxious, propulsive verses, putting most of the recent 1980s-throwback fetishists to shame. The arpeggiator, which the band first discovered on Brill Bruisers, is back with a vengeance, lacing nearly every track with inhumanly fast keyboard and vocal patterns. It ensures that even the dreamy We've Been Here Before, the closest Whiteout Conditions comes to something laidback, proceeds at nothing short of a manic pace, creating a fascinating dichotomy between tempo and atmosphere.

FATHER JOHN MISTY
PURE COMEDY
$10.99(sale priced)
Pure Comedy lives up to its title. Its a comedy in every sense of the word. Absurdity is the order of the day. There are jokes around every turn. The central joke being the perfectly dissonant balance of sincerity and sarcasm conveyed by music and lyrics alike. It makes sense Father John Misty is a polarizing figure given how much his music is composed of polarities. Thats truer of this album than it is of even the very sardonic I Love You, Honeybear. Much has been made of the marriage of his conventionally beautiful voice and accessible instrumentation to his nihilistic and irony-soaked lyricism. This record is definitive proof that that relationship is working, lasting and getting better with age. This is a big-idea album in a way none of his work was before. Even with songs like Holy Shit or The Ideal Husband, hed fall back on his own personal experiences toat least, ostensiblygive his larger ruminations a sense of foundation. This time around, he musters all his confidence as a philosopher to portray externalities from an outside-looking-in perspective. On the whole, his potential need for introspection has been removed in the service of a greater cause: describing the world in all its tragicomic glory.
