COSTELLO ELVIS & IMPOSTERS
LOOK NOW
$12.99(sale priced)
Recorded in Hollywood, New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia, 'Look Now' is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It's the first album Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of 'Momofuku' and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, 'Wise Up Ghost'. 'Look Now' is an outstanding 12-strong addition to his song catalogue. Most of the titles were written solely by Elvis Costello although, 'Don't Look Now' and 'Photographs Can Lie' were co-written with Burt Bacharach, who makes a guest appearance, leading The Imposters from the piano for those two ballads. The album was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys - the Latin Grammy Producer of the Year for 2007 and 2015, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.
UNCLE ACID & DEADBEATS
WASTELAND
$11.99(sale priced)
Brace yourself, English rockers Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats are set to return on Friday, October 12, 2018 with Wasteland, their fifth overall studio album and fourth with Rise Above Records. Three years may be a short time, but it marks the longest gap between outputs for the band, whose previous efforts 2015s The Night Creeper, 2013s Mind Control, and 2011s Blood Lust came in rapid succession after their long-out-of-print 2010 debut, Vol. 1. A return that fans are foaming at the mouth to hear, frontman, founder, and mastermind Kevin Starrs has shuffled his lineup this time around. While veteran Vaughn Stokes returns from The Night Creeper, switching to rhythm guitar from bass guitar, the rhythm section is entirely new, comprised of Bassist Justin Smith, rising from the ashes of psychedelic rockers Purson, and Drummer Jon Rice. Starrs has also abandoned the loose identity that he plays the role of aforementioned Uncle Acid, operating with a backing band of Deadbeats. Instead, the entire lineup is equally guilty in the titular role.
KURT VILE
BOTTLE IT IN
$13.99(sale priced)
Bottle It In is Viles eighth solo album. It is long and unafraid, every now and then, to lay down extended drone-riff songs. Viles M.O. is the kind of Americana experimentalism we expect from bands such as Megafaun and Deerhunter, but by way of the caustic avant-pop suss of Lou Reed or Flaming Lips. Its a likeable cocktail although short on songs a listener might take away and hum. With some artists, this would spell disaster but Viles rambling, ramshackle persona is part of his appeal.In any case, there are a few sunny pop numbers, notably the jolly, loved-up single One Trick Ponies, the dreamy whimsy of Rollin With the Flow, and the albums twangy country-rock opening cut Loading Zones. The latter hints at Viles wandering verbal and vocal style which can sometimes approach the intriguing stoned burbling of Why?s Yoni Wolf (see Cold Was the Wind). The albums centrepieces, though, are long psychedelic riff-rollers such as the swirling Bassackwards, the slamming guitar odyssey Skinny Mini , the equally rocky Check Baby and the relentless chugging groove of the title track
TOM MORELLO
ATLAS UNDERGROUND
$12.99(sale priced)
In a world where the amount of attention that you receives depends on the extremity of your opinions, there are few takes colder than the one declaring that rock is dead. Utter nonsense. Rock, metal and virtually all forms of modern music have entered an explosive new era where traditional instruments and technology have collided with exhilarating results, thanks largely to visionary creatives like Tom Morello.The former Rage Against The Machine guitarist has created a body of music erupting with bold ideas, fiery lyricism and his inextinguishable passion for rejecting all manners of status quo. And hes impossible to pin down. In the wake of RATMs rap-metal insurrection, Morello would indulge his stadium rock ambitions with Audioslave and his inner Springsteen in a series of solo albums as The Nightwatchman. In 2016 he co-founded the RATM/hip hop supergroup Prophets Of Rage, and along the way hes worked with the likes of Linkin Park, Anti-Flag, Rise Against, Springsteen and others. Beyond his insta-recognisable riffs, what unites these projects is an aggressive refusal to compromise any aspect of his art. He believes what he believes, he plays what he plays.
