    Plastic Beach

    We rejoin the band as Murdoc the bass player is gathering musicians and collaborators to create the new album. The new Gorillaz empire is set on a strange floating island deep in the South Pacific at the furthest point from any land mass on the planet. Introducing Plastic Beach, an island made entirely of plastic, debris and the washed up remnants of humanity. Amongst the collection of historical remains and discarded rubble, Murdoc finds a book detailing the history of Man right up to the present day, except the last chapter The End of Days has been torn out, the future is missing. Time to get the band together, finish this album and have fun while the sun still shines. To complete the task, Murdoc has assembled some other musicians to join the band at Plastic Beach, these select people would join him on his floating Hellfire Club, as musicians, players and contributors in this wonky, damaged Plastic opera. Mos Def, Bobby Womack, The Horrors, Lou Reed, Little Dragon, rappers Kano and Bashy, Mark. E. Smith, Syrian orchestras, global musicians and more were subpoena-ed to collaborate on this visionary Gorillaz record.

    Carry On The Grudge

    Epitaph Records is proud to announce the release of British
    punk-inspired singer-songwriter Jamie T's new album Carry
    On The Grudge. Jamie T is a gold-selling,
    Mercury prize-nominated artist from Wimbledon, South
    London named by the NME as "one of the most original,
    exciting musicians of the last decade." He was attracted to
    Epitaph with its rich punk heritage, the perfect home for his
    rattling post-Clash rhythms, with irreverent tips of the hat
    to Prince Buster, Madness and The Who. With first single
    "Zombie" already a bona fide hit in his homeland, and the
    Gorillaz-esque "Don't You Find" earning Jamie's first major
    US radio support at Alt Nation and elsewhere, Carry On
    The Grudge is something of a rebirth for the artist, and an
    introduction to this acclaimed artist for US fans.

    I Wish My Brother George Were Here

    In the early 90s hip hop took a turn and gangsta-style rap dominated, making waves off
    the West Coast that rattled throughout the world. The East Coast's dominance was
    descending despite the success and positivity of Native Tongues acts like De La Soul
    and A Tribe Called Quest, who favored thought-provoking humor and cleverness over
    gangsta rap's grittiness and grim outlook. It was in this landscape that Oakland, CA's
    Del The Funky Homosapien emerged in 1991, with his debut release
    I Wish My Brother George Was Here.


    Cribbing equally from the East Coast's irreverence and wit, and the West Coast's
    P-Funk inspired production, (the album was produced by Del's cousin Ice Cube) Del's
    debut has rightly been heralded as a benchmark album for underground hip hop. I Wish My Brother George Was Here not only produced the underground classics Dr. Bombay and Mistadobalina (#9 on the 1992 Hot Rap Tracks Charts), but also set the scene for the success of the other less gangsta West Coast
    artists like The Pharcyde, Digable Planets, and of course Del's compatriots in Souls of Mischief.


    Above all else, Del is credited with injecting some much needed light-heartedness at a moment when it was truly needed.
    Since his debut Del has gone on to work alongside Gorillaz, Wu-Tang Clan, El-P, Handsome Boy Modeling School, and
    as a member of the acclaimed hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and even with Dinosaur Jr.


    Traffic Entertainment now presents I Wish My Brother George Was Here as a special double LP reissue, featuring the
    original artwork, and all of The Funky Homosapien's witty and innovative rhymes intact.

    Deltron 3030

    The super group Deltron 3030 is composed of producer Dan the Automator, rapper Del tha
    Funkee Homosapien and DJ Kid Koala and sometimes features guest artists who also take
    on varying futuristic pseudonyms. Originally released in 2000 on the now-defunct 75ARK
    record label, this Hip Hop concept album was released the same year as the Gorillaz first
    12 and is on a similar plane. Following the release of Deltron 3030, all three members
    participated in the Gorillaz self-titled debut album.


    With Del aka Deltron Zero on vocals, Dan the Automator aka The Cantankerous Captain
    Aptos on production, and Kid Koala aka Skiznoid the Boy Wonder on turntables, this album
    takes the listener on a paranoid journey set in a dystopian year 3030 dealing with viruses, the
    apocalypse, an oppressive government, and a war waged against a huge company called
    the Corporate Bank of Time that rules the universe, all to the well-crafted and consistent
    musical backing of the Automator. Appearances by Damon Albarn (The Gorillaz, Blur), Prince
    Paul, Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Money Mark, Paul Barman, Mark Bell (Bjork, production), Sean
    Lennon, and Mr. Lif compliment Dels vocal style and add the right amount of flavor to this
    classic period piece.

    The highly anticipated collaboration of Darryl Palumbo (hardcore's Glassjaw )and legendary beatmaker/ producer Dan The Automator Nakamura (Handsome Boy Modeling School, Gorillaz, Dr. Octagon), Head Automatica sounds like nothing you would imagine (i.e., NOT rap metal)on the duo's debut album Decadence. We're an electronic cock-rock band, says Palumbo, setting aside the anger and angst of Glassjaw. I just want to f***ing party. With Head Automatica, the party is full on.

    I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now

    Got at Girl starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura - are thrilled to announce the release of I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, on Bulk Recordings. The pair's enthralling debut album, sees Nakamura - whose innumerable, inimitable credits include influential production (Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon, Gorillaz) and membership in such visionary collaborations as Deltron 3030, Lovage, and Handsome Boy Modeling School - and Winstead - known for her work in the films Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Spectacular Now, and next seen in Kill the Messenger - sweetly detached vocal delivery and nuanced lyricism.


    Winstead and Nakamura first crossed paths while both worked on 2010s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the actor acting and the musician contributing to the score. Winstead - who counts Lovage's Music To Make Love To Your Old Lady By as "one of my favorite albums of all time" - approached Nakamura after a cast and crew dinner to let him know she was a big fan, assuming that would be that. "About a year later, Dan came up to me at the premiere and said, 'We should do something sometime,'" Winstead says. "I was like, okay! I would love to! I didn't think it was real."


    Right from the jump, the two seemingly disparate artists found they were both surfing similar waves of inspiration. Each were especially enthused by the daft, dewy and even slightly degenerate sounds of 1960s French pop, that uniquely Gallic soufflÉ of girl group soul, cafÉ jazz, lush arrangements and groovy eroticism.


    "It was a meeting of the minds," says Nakamura. "A kindred spirit kind of thing." He sent a skeletal track to Winstead, suggesting she begin thinking of songwriting in terms of character and story. For the nascent lyricist, the task came with no little pressure. Winstead and Nakamura soon commenced writing together, collaborating on lyrics as they learned more about each other's creative strengths and interests.


    "I've had the fortune of working with a lot of very talented people," Nakamura says. "When it's right, it's right. That makes it work really easily. Working with Mary is like working with Del (The Funkee Homosapien) or working with Damon (Albarn) - it's really natural. It just works."


    I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now is surprisingly seamless, a perfectly realized union of atmospheric ambience and ambitious songcraft. The Automator is of course a master of genre subversion and experimental futurism, effortlessly transmogrifying hip-hop, psychedelia, found sounds, and all manners of pop and world music with his singular taste for prolix wordplay, multiple personas and conceptual adventure. For Got A Girl, he has assembled a rich, enveloping sound world all its own, with hints of Laurel Canyon folk, yacht rock, and sunshine pop stylized and synthesized through sumptuous arrangements, intricate electronics, and unfettered melodic invention. The sonic landscape calls up far flung locales both real and imagined, knit together by restless grooves, elastic dubby beats, and Winstead's complex characterizations.

    Zonkey

    Umphrey's McGee has been arranging and performing original mashups live for over eight years. It was only a matter of when, not if, some of those innovative concoctions would find their way into a studio. And that when has arrived.


    UM is pleased to announce ZONKEY, an album of 12 unique mashups, conceived, arranged & executed by the band. ZONKEY is as seamless as it bizarre, playful as it is razor sharp. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40+ years of popular music from 70's Reggae to 80's Pop to 90's Metal and everywhere in between. From Radiohead mashed with Beck, The Weeknd with Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads with Bob Marley, Metallica with Gorillaz .nothing is off limits.


    ZONKEY clearly pays homage to some of our favorite artists & songs. While we've tried to reproduce the spirit of the original compositions & recordings, we've also tried to have some fun with the structure as we've often combined seemingly dissimilar musical elements to create a new vibe altogether," notes keyboardist Joel Cummins.

    Babes Never Die (On Sale)

    Recorded during several candle-burning stints at London's Fish Factory studios in the winter of 2016, Stina and Cat were joined by acclaimed producer James Dring, whose work with the likes of Jamie T and Gorillaz made him an intriguing choice for the Scottish duo. Make no mistake though, 'Babes...' doesn't sound like anyone else but Honeyblood. The urgent lo-fi charm that defined their debut still pulses from its core.


    The band that burst forth from Glasgow's DIY underground scene just a few years ago, recording cassette tape releases in their bathrooms and hosting ad-hoc parties in disused hairdressers is still in tact; however, the evolution that's taken place is undeniable. An epically road-tested band and a dose of production finesse create a formidable combination. Stina's songwriting truly has found a bright new spotlight on her band's second outing.


    Babes...' is resplendent in the kind of effortless chant-a-long hooks that one by one will all soon become their own mantras. For a while now Honeyblood have been talked about as one of the most exciting new UK bands, but with 'Babes...' you just get the feeling that before long they'll be simply be known as one of the most important bands around, period.

    The Child Of Lov

    180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl


    For Fans of: Gnarls Barkley, Beck, J Dilla, Gorillaz, Danger Mouse


    There's something about Cole Williams's voice that conjures pictures in the mind.
    Not only through the intense and compelling vocals of his recordings, either.
    There's a catch to it, a rugged rasp weathered beyond his years, that shows that his
    singing style - rich in the cadences of funk, blues and soul. Spend any time with
    them, and it's abundantly clear that Cole - or if you prefer, The Child Of Lov - is a
    true modern soul man.


    This much we know: Cole has lived in London, Paris and Amsterdam where he's
    currently based. He has, for various reasons, spent a good deal of time alone with
    music. His first inspirations were his mother's Stevie Wonder albums. By the age
    of 13 he was listening to hip hop and neo-soul, and began to try and make his own
    beats on his computer, and initially to rap. At 14, he began to teach himself guitar
    and piano, and became obsessed with the off-kilter hip hop beats of J Dilla and
    especially Madlib, the master of the thickly-layered psychedelic groove. Inspired
    by the combination of unorthodox musicality with hip hop attitude, as he picked
    out his own melodies and slowly developed his instrumental skills; it all came
    together.


    So here we are: from those years' worth of self-disciplined musical study and
    practice recordings, then a period of adjusting to their exposure to the world, have
    come the tracks that became The Child Of Lov album. They're layered with all
    the intensity and dedication that Cole has put into his listening and learning, and
    with his passion for the influences. Check out "Give Me" - the peculiar stutter of
    his abstract hip hop heroes Madlib and Dilla is there, but so is his first inspiration
    Stevie Wonder as well as brilliantly discordant hints of Prince and even Tom Waits
    in full junkyard prophet mode. Listen to the powerfully defiant "Fly" and wonder
    that the powerful, gospel-infused voice is that of a young man, and not a soul
    veteran beaten but unbowed by life's tribulations and soak up the mournful opener
    "Call Me Up" - the sort of track you'd always hoped Sly Stone might pull himself
    together and make one day

    Welcome To Mali

    Welcome to Mali, the second Nonesuch effort from Malian duo Amadou & Mariam has already garnered rapturous reviews from critics in Europe, where it was released in late 2008. The album appeared on many year-end best-of lists; Londons Sunday Mirror declared, African pop doesnt get more effervescent and joyful than the sound of this blind couple dueling together and sending their message of love around the globe. Simply wonderful.


    American audiences were introduced to the married pair, who met at a Malian school for the blind, with its Nonesuch debut Dimanche à Bamako, produced by the Paris-based world-music provocateur Manu Chao. With Chao behind the wheel, the album was like an exhilaratingly bumpy taxi ride straight into the heart of the Malian capital; cacophonous sounds of the streets mixed in with the spare, propulsive rhythms of the songs, making it all sound thrillingly immediate. Amadou & Mariam, already into the second decade of their overseas career, attracted an impressively wide-ranging state side audience, from world music stalwarts to clubgoers to indie rockers.


    Welcome to Mali, recorded in Bamako, Dakar, Paris and London and produced with longtime manager Marc-Antoine Moreau, is less high-concept travelogue than straightforward set, yet it proves to be even more adventurous and exuberantly rocking. Damon Albarn briefly joins the pair, co-producing and co-writing the opening track Sabali, as ingeniously arranged as the best of his work with the Gorillaz and featuring Mariams almost otherworldly vocals over swirls of disco-style keyboards. Amadou has long spoken of his affection for classic rock and it shows in his playing; Londons Independent calls Welcome to Mali a rock album with an African Heart. Theres a bit of Yardbirds-era swinging London, keyboard arrangements that wouldnt be out of place in a Parisian disco, hip hop breaks from Toronto-based Somalian rapper Knaan and the occasional garage-rock riff, as well as traditional touches courtesy of fellow Malian Toumani DiabatÉ and his magical kora playing. A deep undercurrent of the blues, an arguably indigenous Malian sound that migrated to the Mississippi delta, runs through the disc. Says Uncut, Amadous slithering, grinding guitar riffs sound dark and spiky, the missing link between Ali Farka TourÉ and Steve Cropper.

    Southern Gothic

    Constellations stomping ground is Atlanta, GA, and in the wee small hours of the morning, A-Town can get awfully bizarre.



    The record is all about what happens in Atlanta from 2 AM until noon. Your tour guide on this madcap adventure is the magnetic frontman and vocalist Elijah Jones, the ringleader of the twisted circus that is The Constellations, who spent two years writing and recording the album with producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), along with some storied cronies from the local scene. Not that they set out with specific intentions. Far from it. All of us wanted to do a record about Atlanta, but we never said it in words, recalls Jones. But the deeper we got into it, the more we realized we were writing a concept album.


    Atlanta is strange, he adds, because were all basically pushed together. The hip-hop heads, punk rockers, and indie kids all rub shoulders and mix it up. Southern Gothic reflects that inclusive diversity in its far-reaching sound. The record was designed to sound lyrically and melodically very thought out, and sonically very disorganized, comments Allen. One expects nothing less from a singer who cites Tom Waits and Cee-Lo of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley as his musical heroes, working with a producer who name-checks Fela Kuti and Gorillaz among their records key influences.


    The bands name refers to the myriad musicians from the regional scene who either contributed to making Southern Gothic, or have since played in The Constellations live band. One luminary who drops in is Cee-Lo, whose verse on the electro-rocker Love Is A Murder prompted a completely overhaul the track underneath. Another guest is suburban rapper Asher Roth, lending his playful rhymes to Were Here To Save The Day, among the album's most insidious moments. On the one hand, this dittys sound is pure sing-along bliss, with a gleeful chorus delivered by Elijahs niece and nephew. Yet at the same time, Jones and Roth drop rhymes that lampoon commercial top 40 hip-hop and chest-thumping poseurs.

    Hotel Valentine

    One of the most beloved and critically-acclaimed bands of the late 90s, Cibo Matto pioneered post-genre freakout long before the digital shuffle. Spiking their artful pop songs with rap, funk, jazz, Brazilian, African, and Latin sounds, they placed in Spin's "Top Albums of the 90's" and Time magazine's "Best Hip Hop Albums of All Time".


    During a brief two-record career they graced major magazine covers and were immortalized on an early episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Post breakup the band received a "Best Of" overview from Rhino Records in 2007, and their track "Sugar Water" appeared in the Nip/Tuck series finale in 2010. All along Miho Hatori & Yuka Honda have continued to record projects both pop and avant garde, have guested on records by the Beastie Boys, Gorillaz, and in 2012 performed (as Cibo Matto) at a KCRW concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Returning to the studio as Cibo Matto, they have made their most impressive and cinematic album, packed with kaleidoscopic grooves, demented horns, crazy synthesizers and funky-but-chic blasts of pure danceability.

    Closing Time

    When unassuming young Orkney music-maker Erland Cooper picked up his guitar and travelled the length of the country to play a show in London's
    Notting Hill, little did he know that a chance encounter with musical veteran Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad & The Queen, and Gorillaz)
    would be the start of a unique songwriting friendship. Together they formed Erland & The Carnival and now, nearly a decade later, arrives Closing Time -
    the band's third, most accomplished album yet.


    Opening a new chapter, Closing Time is an understated, inward looking collection of songs that feature stunning string arrangements and Erland's
    impassioned vocals at centre stage. But rather than the modern folk adaptations of traditional songs, children's poems, and ancient literature on the
    band's earlier albums or the pair's recent conceptual folklore project The Magnetic North, this time the band tell tales of a more personal nature.
    "Previously we didn't know what we wanted to say or how to say it and would use stories and direct references to help us get to a place we could feel
    secure," admits Simon. Erland adds; "in making this record we discarded an album's worth of material that sounded like the first two albums. We wanted
    to make something different - doing another Jackson C Frank cover wasn't an option."


    Above all, Closing Time is the very first time the listener can truly hear the wholly collaborative process that is Erland & The Carnival. Lyrical and musical
    duties have always been shared, yet here the combined creativity of the pair's working friendship is only solidified with Erland taking a more 'hands on'
    approach to production. The string arrangements, brought about by the album's unashamed twisted and selfish love song 'Quiet Love', were scored by
    Simon before being recorded by a quartet in his living room later that week.


    Recorded in Damon Albarn's studio13 with previous Erland & The Carnival engineer Steve Sedgewick and mixed by London Grammar producer Tim Bran
    with Paul Weller guesting on two tracks. Despite creating more than 40 songs in the process of writing the album ("Some of the song melodies and ideas
    on this may have even been written when I was 21 to be honest. 'Hopeless' certainly was," admits Erland), it was a brilliantly spontaneous and productive
    time taking just over 3 days to come to fruition. "We learnt to be incredibly disciplined" tells Simon. "It feels like pruning a tree - when you cut away the
    needless and weaker branches, what you get is something much fresher and stronger coming through."
