BUDDY GUY
BLUES IS ALIVE & WELL
$12.99(sale priced)
A forefather of the Blues, Buddy Guy is a seven-time Grammy Award winner, holding five No. 1 albums under his hat, who helped bridge the gap between the Blues and Rock -n-Roll. A master Bluesman, Buddy Guy is still heavily active writing, recording, and touring at 81 years young. Never slowing down, Buddy Guy returns with his new album, The Blues Is Alive And Well. On The Blues Is Alive And Well, Guy has collaborated once again with longtime Producer Tom Hambridge to follow-up his acclaimed 2015 album, Born To Play Guitar, an album which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top Blues Album Chart. Even better, The Blues Is Alive And Well features guest appearances by a few gentlemen who you could say are music icons.Kicking off The Blues Is Alive And Well, A Few Good Years hits the spot with those soothing and yearning notes Blues fans have come to love. The sharp Guilty As Charged precedes a song about getting drunk in style, Cognac (Featuring Jeff Beck and Keith Richards). Here, this mind-blowing trio pay homage to a fine spirit, and as Guy implies in the song, the one to drink when playing the Blues. The title track, The Blues Is Alive And Well, needs no explanation as Bad Day says dont push my buttons alongside a killer Blues solo.
REBELUTION
FREE REIN
$12.99(sale priced)
For fourteen years the California based reggae group Rebelution has been bringing their modern sound to the world of reggae with their special blend of rock, R&B and jazz stamped onto the traditional Jamaican reggae sound. The band is made up of: Eric Rachmany as the songwriter, lyricist, singer and guitar player, also Rachmany is on keyboards making him an integral part of the bands sound, Rory Carey is the drummer and Marley D. Williams is on bass. The band is known for their touring and their live shows are touted as a blast! Falling Into Place, their 2016 studio album, became the bands fourth release to top the Billboard reggae chart, earning them their first ever Grammy nomination in the category of Best Reggae Album. The Rebelution phenomenon continues with their sixth studio album called, Free Rein released on June 15, 2018. Produced by acclaimed Jamaican producers Don Corleon (Rihanna, Sean Paul) and Winta James (Damian Marley, Chronixx). The material on the new album still has the reggae tradition, but the band is expanding on the Rebelution style and Jamaican roots vibe. Thats the short of it!
MAD CADDIES
PUNK ROCKSTEADY
$11.99(sale priced)
News flash theres a new Mad Caddies album! Rumors have been flying for the past few months, but they have finally revealed the details of what Fat Mike and the band have been collaborating on. Mike wanted to put a reggae spin on some classic punk songs, so he enlisted the help of the Caddies, and Punk Rocksteady was born. The album features 12 classic punk songs, hand-picked by Fat Mike, completely re-imagined with a reggae strut! No bullshit this album would even have Bob Marley jammin to standards from the likes of Bad Religion, The Misfits, and Descendents. Mad Caddies arent just a 90s ska punk band, and the record aims to hit every genre under the reggae umbrella. Some of the arrangements call to mind Melbourne Ska Orchestra, while others (like Jean Is Dead) find some interesting ground to cover. In a similar vein, Am (Tony Sly) and Alien8 (Lagwagon) are two of the better covers on the album; paired together in a tribute to 90s punks favourite brothers. Stripping all the energy and passion from Propagandhis And We Thought That Nation States Were A Bad Idea is the weakest moment. Fat Mike appears from out of the producing chair to weakly sing a re-writtern verse of Ska Sucks at the enda half-hearted wink to the camera.
JOHNNY MARR
CALL THE COMET
$13.99(sale priced)
His third solo album is a melancholic tinged and thrilling affair that deals with the ghosts of the past but still attempts to move forward. There are plenty off Smiths-esque moments as Marr wrestles with the legacy of his past and puts his own stamp on a history that is as much his as anyone elses. Songs that nod to the melodic push and pull of classic Smiths punctuate the album, any lover of those soaring choruses and the the chiming guitars of that much loved of bands will have plenty of moments to embrace here but there are also glorious curveballs and moments when a melancholic post punk darkness creeps in and an innate sadness twists and turns with the sparse imaginative productions to create songs that nod at fellow travellers like Joy Division or any of the great M62 bands that were so much part and parcel of the post punk motorway of the north. There is a darkness hovering over the tracks, a sadness a sense of longing, that melancholy that is so key to the great northern musics.Not that the album wallows in the mythical past there is a freshness and urgency of sound to the record with great crisp vocals and, of course, an endless collections of great guitar lines and brisk energetic playing from the band that makes the record feel contemporary. Of course the Smiths key musical architect is always going to have a whiff of that most classic of bands about his songwriting but there is so much noise here than that.
