New Release Round-Up 08-19-14

New Release Round-Up 08-19-14

Electric Würms, a prog-rock side project featuring The Flaming Lips' multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd on vocals, guitars, and keyboards and front man Wayne Coyne on bass and backed by Nashville psychedelic rock band Linear Downfall, presents a six-song album on Warner Bros. Records. Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, will transport the listener into a new kind of transcendental orbit than one might expect from The Lips alone. Instead, these six velvety compositions appear to be harvested from a higher bardo plane of sound yet maintain a pleasantly familiar rock "experience" associated with The Lipsianoeuvre.

Orenda Fink - Blue DreamThroughout her time with Azure Ray and over the course of her solo career, Orenda Fink has never shied from exploring the darker edges of spirituality and the human condition. On her latest album, Blue Dream, she looks closely at death, reflecting upon a year-long meditation on the subject. That year she found herself on a deeply personal search for the meaning of death. Pieces of answers, coded in riddle, came to her in dreams. Her dreams began to tell a story–about life and death and the afterlife, reality, and the fine line between the conscious and subconscious world. She then spent the next year understanding the experience and filtering it through the musical inspirations of Smog, Violetta Parra, and Kate Bush to craft Blue Dream. The album trulycame together at ARC in Omaha, NE with the help of producers Ben Brodin and Todd Fink (The Faint), along with drummer Bill Rieflin (Ministry, Swans, R.E.M., King Crimson).

Kimbra's 2nd album The Golden Echo is ambitious, sophisticated, and complex, just like its creator. The Golden Echo was produced by Rich Costey who has been on her dream list of collaborators since she was 15. The lyrics find her grappling with a range of subject matter, from feeling nostalgic about young love on "90s Music," to being caught up in a place of narrowness on "Mad House," to wanting to run away and make a new life on "Carolina," to the vulnerability that follows succumbing to temptation on "Be Everlovin Ya." Kimbra wrote several of the songs with Daniel Johns from Silverchair, another idol of hers.

Sparks has been on a well traveled journey, one which Heap began at 6am 14 March 2011, with a live stream from her home studio in a small village on the outskirts of London, gathering 'sound seeds' from fans and weaving them together to form the first song (Lifeline). Fast forward, 4 continents later, a dozen related projects and 14 tracks, the album cover artwork was then completed by those who pre-ordered the limited edition, super deluxe box set by sending in their footprints! The stunning piece of artwork and packaging, designed and developed over the past three years by Imogen and her creative team with CSV (the company behind Radiohead s special packaging) it is the very first time that Imogen has released such a super deluxe package.

Jessica Hernandez & the DeltasJessica Hernandez & The Deltas have arrived at last with their long awaited Instant Records debut, Secret Evil. The album which follows 2013 s Demons EP sees the Detroit-based band serving up a brilliantly polyglot sonic stew equal parts rockabilly and surf pop, cabaret jazz and funky reggae, Latin psych and Gypsy punk all cooked up on the hot Motor City pavement and seasoned by that distinctly Detroit combination of blasted R&B, showband theatrics, and limitless rock n soul energy. WATCH VIDEO


I Will Not Be Afraid is the national debut album by Caroline Rose, a fiery 24-year-old songwriter raised on rockabilly, vintage country and blues- infused rock; a self-proclaimed failed scholar and modern-day hobo who earned a degree in architecture (on a full-ride scholarship), then abandoned it all. Produced, written and arranged by Rose and co- produced with multi-instrumentalist Jer Coons, the album chronicles Caroline's wandering years; a disillusioned youth constantly demanding free- dom and the most from life. Raised in the North- east, Rose is a rare mix of Northern grit and Southern charm whose musical influences trace back to her family's Southern roots, running deep into the heart of Mississippi.

Blacc Hollywood marks the third full-length label release from Wiz Khalifa, and includes the hit single, "We Dem Boyz." Memoirs of a Murderer is an embodiment of KING 810’s life within this pressure cooker. JJ have, with the album 'V', realised the definitive expression of their experiences to date, and are finally comfortable with being a press-welcoming, tour-ready outfit. With more instrumental sophistication and all-tape recording, Native Echoes features more atmosphere and patina to deepen its new octane from Beach Day. The new Bishop Allen record, Lights Out, is here at last.

Produced by Charlie Hugall (Florence and The Machine, Ed Sheeran), Paul Savage (Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand) and Peter Miles (We Are The Ocean, Futures), these new songs are at turns anthemic, cerebral and irresistible. Peter Liddle's melifluous, choral voice blends effortlessly with chiming guitars and stirring rhythms, and additional emotional resonance is provided by arrangements and strings from Valgeir Sigurðsson (Sigur Rós, Björk). WATCH VIDEO
