OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
VOLUNTEER (DIG)
$10.99(sale priced)
After covering an iconic album by Bob Dylan in its entirety, that being the famously influential Blonde On Blonde no less, how is a band best advised as far as making its next move? That was the inevitable question Old Crow Medicine Show was forced to consider following the accolades that tribute received. After all, one of the main objectives at that juncture had to be to reestablish their own identity, free of anyone elses shadow, including the biggest of all, that of Mr. Dylan. How then to make an album that might earn equal acclaim, and reaffirm their identity and ingenuity all at the same time?While some outfits might opt to broaden their base and alter their approach, Old Crow Medicine took the opposite option, choosing instead to go back to basics. Consequently, Volunteer is an album that projects its rustic references, all etched with nostalgia and songs that offer reasons for return to the pleasures of front porch existence. Child of the Mississippi, Dixie Avenue and A World Away celebrate the joys of home and the hearth, and the sheer celebration that comes with knowing theres a place where one belongs.
PERFECT CIRCLE
EAT THE ELEPHANT
$11.99(sale priced)
Still led by founding guitarist Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide) and vocalist Maynard James Keenan, Los Angeles outfit A Perfect Circle has always been viewed as the latters most accessible projectand for good reason. Eat the Elephant is the first new and original APC album since 2003s Thirteenth Step. Additionally, it finds Howerdel performing nearly all of the instruments. According to band lore, he recently reunited with Keenan after being cryogenically frozen as part of an experimental partnership between the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and Dairy Queen; sardonic humor asideincluding the albums title being both a jab at current politics and a possible nod to the indefinitely delayed new Tool album as, you know, the elephant in the roomHowerdel justly sees this latest collection as their finest work to date. Packed with gorgeously chilling arrangements and MJKs skill at delivering circumspect, yet optimistic, look[s] at the world's current state of affairs with riled delicacy, its a ceaselessly gripping journey.
YOUNG NEIL & PROMISE OF THE REAL
PARADOX
$12.99(sale priced)
Love this. Love the film. The film bings me to tears and makes me laugh. Wide range of opinions on all this as the comments show, but my world is a better place for having seen it, and Young brings out the best of The Promise of the Real. Lucas Nelson's rendition of Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground sounds so much like a young Willie. Great music. Cowgirl Jam is not to be missed. Great work from all. I am a life long fan and believe this album will be one of the great ones. The cowgirl jam is classic Neil. The movie by the way is interesting, intertaining and well done. Good job everyone....
FLAMING LIPS
SCRATCHING THE DOOR: FIRST RECORDINGS OF THE
$11.99(sale priced)
SCRATCHING THE DOOR highlights tracks recorded by The Flaming Lips original line-up, which featured Wayne Coynes brother Mark on vocals.
