    Humbug

    Humbug, the third album from Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys finds the band brimming with vim, vigor and new ideas. They brought in a new production accomplice, Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age), for some of the recording. He generously hosted and produced tracks with them at his Joshua Tree studio. Then they rejoined forces with James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco), producer of the previous two Arctic Monkeys and Last Shadow Puppets albums, in Brooklyn, NY to complete the tracks that became Humbug. The album is stunning set of songs both heavier and lush than previous albums but still full of the Monkeys usual punch and vitality.

    Oh Mercy

    Released in 1989, Oh Mercy found Bob Dylan at the top of his game. Widely regarded as his best album in over a decade, Oh Mercy reaches back to Dylan's artfulness from his early years. Lyrically, the album boasts a healthy mix of social works, love songs and poetical subject matter. Especially the laidback and airy production by Daniel Lanois (whose CV mentions U2's Joshua Tree, Album Of The Year in 1988) makes Oh Mercy undoubtedly the pinnacle of Bob Dylan's eighties output!

    You've Always Meant So Much To Me

    J.R. Robinson has been writing and recording music as Wrekmeister Harmonies in various incarnations since 2006. In 2012 he brought together some of the most revered musicians in the black metal and experimental music worlds (Jef Whitehead of Leviathan, Sanford Parker and Andrew Markuszewski of Nachmystium, Jamie Fennelly aka Mind Over Mirrors, Mark Solotroff of Anatomy of Habit, Bruce Lamont of Yakuza, and more) to perform You've Always Meant So Much To Me at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago to much acclaim and a sold out theater. The collaborators for the live performance joined Robinson at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio later that year to record the composition in full. The 38 minute composition was written to accompany a film Robinson shot in decimated Detroit locations, the desert of Joshua Tree and decaying forests of Tasmania.

    Hazel

    Los Angeles quintet Young Hunting's debut full-length album Hazel begins with gentle, lush dream pop and ends with stark, desolate gothic folk. The record, inspired mostly by failed affairs, a divorce, and life in the shadow of LA's show-business culture, took the band two years to produce. Primary songwriters Hari and Ilya first met in 2007, quickly bonding over a shared appreciation for Nick Cave, Jason Molina, Can, and the classic California pop of the 60s and 70s. Tracks for Hazel were recorded in various locations around Southern California, including a former ranger's station in the Angeles National Forest, Grandma's Dojo studio in LA's Koreatown, a rented one-bedroom desert house outside of Joshua Tree, and living rooms, garages & guest houses in Echo Park.


    Young Hunting is Hari Rex (vocals/guitar), Ilya Mxx (vocals/guitar), Patrick Taylor (bass), Miles Senzaki (drums), and Tim Phillips (keys/trumpet). Hazel was mastered by Nick Carden in the Blue Room (Oakland, California).

    Emmaar


    Contains CD Of Full Album


    The desert is a place of hardship and subtle beauty, a stark world that reveals its secrets slowly and carefully. For the renowned Saharan band TINARIWEN, the desert is their home, their hypnotic and electrifying guitar rock reflecting the complex realities of their homebase in North West Africa. The band releases their new album Emmaar in 2014.


    Emmaar is the follow up to the group's 2011 album Tassili, recorded in the Algerian desert with an esteemed cadre of musicians including Wilco's Nels Cline and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone - the album won a Grammy for Best World Music.


    But due to political instability in their homeland, TINARIWEN recorded the new record in another desert: Joshua Tree, California. Created over three weeks in the region known for spaced-out rock 'n' roll and psychedelic cowboy folk, Emmaar showcases an organic feel from the rolling hand drums and meandering guitars of album opener "Toumast Tincha" chants to the galloping beats of the forward-marching "Chaghaybou." "We were not in a proper studio or outside in the desert like Tassili," Ag Leche says, "we built a studio in a big house in Joshua Tree. Everybody in the same room, with no separation. We wanted something which sounded natural and live."


    Along with the original members who founded the group in the 1980s (vocalists and guitarists Ibrahim Ag Alhabib, Abdallah Ag Alhousseyni, and Alhassane Ag Touhami) and the younger generation who grew up listening to the band and joined in the 1990s (multi-instrumentalist Eyadou Ag Leche, guitarist Elaga Ag Hamid, and percussionist Said Ag Ayad), a group of American musicians appear on the album. Accompanied by Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Matt Sweeney from Chavez, Nashville fiddler Fats Kaplin, and poet Saul Williams, Emmaar (mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, The Dead Weather ) is a richly layered listen solidified by atmospheric textures and gritty guitar-work.

    Warpaint

    WARPAINT is a Los Angeles based quartet comprised of Emily Kokal
    (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), Theresa Wayman
    (guitar/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). To say that this follow-up
    is "highly anticipated" is an understatement, considering the reception
    that their debut received when it was released at the end of 2010, and
    the excitement at their recent sold-out shows in New York and LA. They
    are currently also featured in a Calvin Klein jeans campaign which has
    received 2 million views via the YouTube ad alone.


    Warpaint was recorded and mixed by Flood, aside from two songs that
    were mixed by Nigel Godrich. The album was conceived after some truly
    inspirational writing and recording sessions that took place in The
    Joshua Tree late last year. The band was joined there by visionary
    director Chris Cunningham, who has partnered with them for many of the
    album visuals including the cover. He spent two years filming and photographing the band as they made new music.


    Warpaint is a well-oiled machine. They weave intricate guitar lines,
    hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling
    songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Both live
    and on record, Warpaint sound like they're channeling something truly
    otherworldly, and mystical. They are also a band that truly enjoys playing
    together. Emily and Theresa have been friends since they were kids, and
    the bond that the four of them have is truly special.

    Reflections: Mojave Desert

    The project started simply because we were on tour with the band, had just finished FYF fest in LA, and had a week before picking up the rest of the tour in Phoenix. On the way, we stopped for a week near Joshua Tree National Park. The idea was to go somewhere fairly remote and setup to rehearse. It was peak summer, so we set up outside and would be playing throughout the day and night. Whilst we were out playing and exploring the area around us - the sound reflecting from the rocks, the sound of the wind between them, complete stillness at night and packs of roaming coyotes in the distance, it became apparent that we could use this as its own unique recording environment. Anna in our crew creates the projections for our live show but is predominantly a filmmaker. We made a few calls to friends in LA and borrowed some film/sound gear and recorded some of the new music that came out of the rehearsals. Through the process of making this record, we decided to start a series of musical & video explorations in interesting locations, where the music is a function of its surroundings. This first experiment only marks the beginning of this idea, and I am currently seeking new interesting acoustic environments to explore.

    Dynamite Steps

    Greg Dulli and Co. Return With Their Most Ambitious, Cohesive Record to Date


    Extraordinary Singing and Transcendent Arrangements


    Whenever youre here, youre alive are the first words sung on Dynamite Steps, the fifth album from Greg Dullis Twilight Singers collective, and the groups first in five years. The Twilight Singers previous release, the acclaimed confessional opus Powder Burns, came out in 2006.


    Dynamite Steps is clearly the next chapter, a whole new level of catharsis and progress, evocatively cramming all the highs and lows of the maverick singer/songwriters past half-decade into unexpected sonic trapdoors. Shot on location at various locales significant to Dullis life, you can hear the sense of place emanating up from the grooves of Dynamite Steps. Here, the weary nighttime decadence of New Orleans rubs up against the oppressive sunshine of Los Angeles and the desolation of Joshua Trees desert vistas.


    Dynamite Steps explores the thin line between life and death, mortality and immortality, resignation and celebration that mythical moment when your life flashes before your eyes, drawn out here over the course of eleven songs. The albums forty-three minutes prove an unflinching odyssey through the dark side, but one thats ultimately redemptive in its scope and power.

    b'lieve i'm goin down...

    Kurt Vile does his own myth making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, b'lieve I'm goin' down... is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history ("valley of ashes") of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie , and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling. In Kurt's words, "I wanted to get back into the habit of writing a sad song on my couch, with nobody waiting on me. I really wanted it to sound like it's on my couch -- not in a lo-fi way, just more unguarded and vulnerable." It's a weird, accepting, mature record, acknowledging the inherent immaturity of being a person whether father, husband , partner, adult, musician, not perfect, but compelling for its understanding that's life though so sad to say - Kim Gordon

    Welcome To The Worms

    Los Angeles-based sister duo Jennifer and Jessie Clavin knew things were going to be different for their band Bleached sophomore LP Welcome The Worms. Not only had they managed to charm world renowned producer Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) to join the sisters and their bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas. While emotionally spinning, they dove head first into music.


    The three girls spent time writing the 10 song LP at a remote house in Joshua Tree, away from the distractions of the city. Other times Jen and Jessie worked alone, just like when they were teenaged punk brats playing in their parents' garage, imitating their heroes The Slits, Black Flag and Minor Threat.


    In the studio, Chiccarelli and co-producer Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, YACHT) helped the band perfect their fervent songs into fearlessly big pop melodies. They drew inspiration from the iconic hits of everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Heart to Roy Ayers. The result is an ambitious rock record with a new found pop refinement that somehow still feels like the Shangri-Las on speed, driven forward in a wind of pot and petals, a wall of guitars in the back seat.

    Command Your Weather

    Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA, "Command Your Weather" sees Big Business
    return to its original two-man lineup of Jared Warren and Coady Willis. It's
    a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power
    and unpredictability of nature. Or it's just a really great rock record, it
    depends on how weird you're willing to get. But you've never had so much
    fun being crushed in the cogs of the universe's great machine, that much is
    for sure! I mean, there's no law against having a couple cold beers while we
    all burn in the fire of time, am I right?!


    Recorded by Dave Curran of UNSANE/PIGS/BIG BUSINESS' previous
    record fame.


    Founded in 2003 in Seattle, WA., Big Business has spent the last 13 years
    touring the world and making records. In 2006 Jared and Coady joined
    forces with the Melvins and moved to Los Angeles. Performing as members
    of the Melvins and staying autonomous as their own band, they have been
    there ever since.

    Do To The Beast


    2xLP 45 RPM 180g Vinyl With Gatefold Sleeve


    Includes 16 Page Booklet


    Do to the Beast is the first new album by The Afghan Whigs in over a
    decade and a half. Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1988, the band has
    long stood out from its peers, with their savage, rapturous blend of hard
    rock, classic soul, and frontman Greg Dulli's searing angst and obsessions.
    The new album is both a homecoming - it marks their return to Sub
    Pop, for whom the Whigs were the first signing from outside the label's
    Northwest base - and a glimpse into the future of one of the most
    acclaimed bands of the past twenty-five years.


    Do to the Beast is an appropriately feral title for one of the most intense,
    cathartic records of Dulli's entire career. It adds fresh twists to The
    Afghan Whigs canon: there's the film noir storytelling of Black Love, the
    exuberance of 1965, the brutal introspection of Gentlemen. However,
    the album exudes a galvanized musical spirit and rhythmic heft that
    suggest transcendence and hope amidst the bloodletting.


    Recorded in L.A., New Orleans, Cincinnati, and Joshua Tree - a virtual
    map of the band's past and present homes, the album features Whigs
    co-founders Greg Dulli and John Curley, along with the core band of
    guitarists Dave Rosser & Jon Skibic, multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson,
    and drummer Cully Symington. Also featured are soul iconoclast Van
    Hunt, Mark McGuire (Emeralds), Johnny "Natural" Nagera (Usher's
    musical director), Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic
    Monkeys), Clay Tarver (Bullet LaVolta, Chavez), Dave Catching (QOTSA,
    Eagles of Death Metal), among others.

    Primitive And Deadly


    Contains Vinyl Only Exclusive Track: Badgers Bane


    This deluxe vinyl version of the new Earth studio opus comes in a thick Stoughton old style tip-on jacket with a soft-touch UV varnish.


    Primitive And Deadly, is EARTH's tenth studio collection. Dylan Carlson and long term cohort, drummer Adrienne Davies, manage to pull off the trick of completing an Ouroborean creative cycle, twenty-five years in the making, whilst exploring new directions in their music. For the first time in their diverse second act, they allow themselves to be a rock band, freed of adornment and embellishment. As much as Carlson's guitar has always been the focal point of EARTH's music, it's been surrounded by consistently diverse instrumentation. Here the dialog between Carlson and Davies drumming remains pivotal, underpinned by the sympathetic bass of Bill Herzog (Sunn O))), Joel RL Phelps, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter) and thickened by additional layers of guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Caustic Resin) and Jodie Cox (Narrows). Perhaps the largest left turn on Primitive And Deadly, though, is prominence of guest vocalists Mark Lanegan and Rabia Shaheen Qazi (Rose Windows) who transform the traditionally free ranging meditations of EARTH into something approaching traditional pop structures.


    On Rooks Across the Gates, a song stylistically the closest to the folk inspired modality of Angels Of Darkness, Carlson stretches out into some of his most lyrical playing to date, creating an almost symbiotic relationship between his performance and the vocals of old friend Mark Lanegan. From the Zodiacal Light, meanwhile, takes the late 60s San Franciscan/freaked-out jazz-rock transcendence of The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull and quickly re-appropriates that sound into a musky torch song for the witching hour.


    This contradictive tension between a band pushing itself ever-forward whilst surveying their history is reflected in the albums twin recording locales. The foundation of the record was laid in the mystic desert high lands of Joshua Tree, California where EARTH recorded hour after hour of meditations on each tracks central theme at Rancho de la Luna. Upon returning to Seattle these were edited, arranged and expanded upon at Avast with the help of long-term collaborator Randall Dunn (who was previously at the helm for the Hex, The Bees Made Honey In The Lions Skull and Hibernaculum sessions).


    Thick, dense and overdriven, melodically rich and enveloping, Primitive And Deadly is EARTH reaffirming their position as a singular point in the history of rock.

    I Love You, Honeybear

    I Love You, Honeybear was recorded intermittently from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles and produced with Jonathan Wilson, whom I also recorded and produced 2012's Fairly Fun with. There's a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like solo-era John Lennon, Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn, while taking more than a few cues from Woody Allen, Kurt Vonnegut, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Muhammad Ali. Blammo.


    It has a decidedly more soulful presence than Fear Fun, due in no small part to the fact that I am truly singing my ass off all over this motherfucker. The album is really characterized by the scope and ambition of the arrangements. Nearly every tune is augmented by something special, be it orchestral strings, a mariachi band, questionable electronic drum solos, ragtime jazz combos, soul singers, or what have you. I'm pretty sure there's a sitar in there somewhere. Blammo. My ambition, aside from making an indulgent, soulful, and epic sound worthy of the subject matter, was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love,
    the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons in my own voice. Blammo.


    This material demanded a new way of being made, and it took a lot of time before the process revealed itself. The massive, deranged shmaltz I heard in my head, and knew had to be the sound of this record, originated a few years ago while Emma and I were hallucinating in Joshua Tree; the same week I wrote the title track. I chased that sound for the entire year and half we were recording. The means by which it was achieved bore a striking resemblance to the travails, abandon and transformation of loving someone. There: I said it. Blammo.

    I Love You, Honeybear was produced by Josh Tillman and Jonathan Wilson, mixed

    Elwan

    For the last five years, Tinariwen have been busy criss-crossing the globe bringing their
    triumpant tours to all five continents and expanding their audience. During this time their
    beloved homeland in the Adrar des Ifoghas, a Saharan mountain range that straddles the
    border between north-eastern Mali and southern Algeria has, in effect, been transformed
    into a conflict zone, a place where nobody can venture without putting themselves in danger.
    These conflicts have forced the band into exile to record their 8th album, Elwan.


    Elwan means 'the elephants ' - an animal metaphor to describe those 'beasts', whether
    militias or multinational consortiums, who have trampled everything in their path: in the
    desert, where both the human and ecological equilibriums are extremely fragile.
    Tinariwen chose to record this album is several locations around the world, including for 4
    days at the desert hideaway of Rancho De La Luna studio in Joshua Tree, CA, the studio
    known as a favored refuge for many an eclectic artist from Queens of the Stone Age to
    Daniel Lanios to Arctic Monkeys to Iggy Pop and more. For Tinariwen, the geographical
    location of the studio proved to be particularly propitious in terms of creativity. And the
    human climate was just as favorable.


    A few friends dropped in during the sessions to add some magic to a few tracks including,
    Kurt Vile (electric guitar), Mark Lanegan ( Vocals on 'Nànnuflày'), Matt Sweeney (electric
    guitar) and producer/guitarist, Alain Johannes (Cigarbox guitar). Sessions were also
    recorded in Morocco, where the band were accompanied by local musicians, in a land
    where they are considered musical legends.


    Lovers of those sensual yet abrasive riffs that are Tinariwen's signature won't be disappointed.
    But neither will those who love their funky, danceable side, which comes through
    loud and clear. All that potential has been wonderfully honed by the album's mixing engineer
    Andrew Schepps, known well for his work with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Johnny
    Cash, and Jay Z.

    SOL

    Apollo Records is proud to present SOL the highly anticipated second album from Los Angeles based producer / composer Eskmo AKA Brendan Angelides. Inspired by our life giving planetary body, SOL is a masterful meditation on human emotional plane as effected by planetary bodies. Angelides has delivered perhaps his strongest musical statement yet. He explains: "My urge was to create an album who's main characters were the Sun, Moon and Earth and how they all play a roll in the perfect simple life of a perfectly imperfect human. Each track within their peak's and valley's plays a specific role in the narrative. My last album was more monotone, sound design focused and emotionally protected. I strove for more on this one. Written, produced and recorded over the course of a year on the Eastside of Los Angeles in his home studio, SOL's epic grandeur bears the traces of Angelides's recent work composing orchestral pieces for live performance with the LA based Echo Society. It weaves in the dulcet tones of a live string ensemble into the many textured layers of some compositions, as well as field recordings from locations across the US: LA, Redwood groves in Northern California, Yosemite and perhaps most memorably, in Costa Rica during a 7 day medicinal retreat. That pivotal retreat as well as a trip to the pyramids and temples of Cairo Egypt, a 10 day silent meditation retreat in the desert of Joshua Tree and a handful of Native American ceremonies shaped the celestial-meets-earth tone of the work. The intimacy and heartfelt qualities of SOL immediately call to mind contemporaries such as Jon Hopkins, Apparat and Matthew Dear as well as the historic likes of early Peter Gabriel, Arthur Russell and Fred Frith amongst others. From the moody cinematic opening of 'SpVce' and exhalting synth melodies of 'Combustion', to the touching delicacy of the watery ballad 'Blue And Grey' to 'Mind Of War''s tromping existential digi-funk, the heartbreaking piano paen of 'Tamara', to the snarling drone saturation of the title track, to the beaming, epic euphoria of 'The Sun Is A Drum' it's clear that this is a record that is a truly cinematic experience.

    Lovers Know

    After touring the world as a member of the Postal Service in 2013, Laura Burhenn (The Mynabirds) took a year to get lost. She drove across the US twice, toured South Africa solo, made her first appearance in London (also solo), and trekked all over Europe with William Faulkner's words ringing in her ears: "You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore." Finally she found herself in Los Angeles with a suitcase of songs to fill a whole new album. Lovers Know, The Mynabirds' third full-length release, was produced by Bradley Hanan Carter (Black English) and recorded over a yearlong period in Los Angeles, Joshua Tree, Nashville, and Auckland, New Zealand. It's definitely new territory for Burhenn, forging into 80s, 90s and futuristic soundscapes, recalling Kate Bush, Sinead O'Connor, The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and even 90s hip hop and R&B. The album may be loaded with a fresh palette of new sounds (swarms of synths, gauzy electric guitars, and electronic drums), but her brooding, unmistakable voice leads the way. Lyrically this is her most personal and confessional work to date, and also her most accessible. Whereas her last album, GENERALS, watched from a wide angle to understand the world at a distance, Lovers Know pulls in close. "There's something about wandering the world over," Laura says, "that makes you realize how similar we all are - everyone searching for something, so often the same thing: love. It may sound trite, but it's true. Love - or the lack of it - is the thing we all have in common. It can destroy us. It can break us open and let the light in. And it's also the thing that can make us sing." Burhenn has released two previous albums as The Mynabirds on Saddle Creek, What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood (2010) and GENERALS (2012), both of which were produced by Richard Swift and met by critical acclaim.
