Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Hypnotic Eye

Hypnotic Eye is the latest album from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and the first album from the band in four years. "I knew I wanted to do a rock & roll record," Petty told Rolling Stone in April. "We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time." The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as check out the promotional video which also covers his upcoming US tour here.  Don't forget that if you picked up the recent Indie Exclusive CD Single, American Dream Plan B, then you can go ahead and use that $2 coupon towards the new album.

Jenny Lewis - The Voyager

The Voyager is Jenny Lewis's most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager's rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis' longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as watch the fantastic video for her recent single Just One Of The Guys which features a few of her famous friends taking on band duties. And if you bought the recent Indie Exclusive Single then feel free to make use of that $2 coupon towards the album. 

When Beck originally released his Song Reader project it was inevitable that one day we would hear the recorded versions.  The twist though is that he asked a few of his musical buddies to take the helm. With Beck and music supervisor Randall Poster producing the album, he invited highly regarded musicians such as Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Laura Marling, Sparks, Loudon Wainwright III, Norah Jones, Fun. and Jack Black to give their interpretations of the songs. There is also a tune by Tweedy, the new band formed by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer.

Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale's influence on Clapton and many of today's artists cannot be understated. To honor JJ's legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for Eric Clapton & Friends - The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale). With performances by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White, the album features 16 beloved JJ Cale songs and is named for the 1972 single "Call Me The Breeze."

Jenny Lewis - The VoyagerInstallation artist, musician and America's Got Talent finalist William Close explores the relationship between architecture and music while reflecting the heart of The Earth Harp Collective's sound on Behind The Veil. The album features lush Rock/Classical fusions, inspired original tracks & fresh interpretations of beloved coves such as The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me."





Plus there are other great, new releases including Theory Of A Deadman return to their roots with more angst and darkness on their new album Savages which is heralded by the fiery single, Drown, produced by longtime collaborator Howard Benson (Halestorm, My Chemical Romance). The long awaited 2014 album Wastoid from Stardeath & White Dwarfs is here. Their heavy, gods-hammering sound owes as much to sludgy prog-rock influences like King Crimson and Pink Floyd as it does to Uncle Wayne's oeuvre.  Get On Up: The James Brown Story [Soundtrack] features studio and standout live versions of many of Brown's top soul/funk hits- from his first, 1956's 'Please Please Please' to 'Out Of Sight,' 'I Got You (I Feel Good),' 'Try Me,' 'Papa's Got A Brand New Bag,' 'It's A Man's Man's Man's World,' and 'Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine.' Cold World, The new album from Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens is a menagerie of Soul music at its finest, untied by the strong message-laden lyrics. Stuck is the third album from American hard rock outfit Adelitas Way and follows their 2011 release, Home School Valedictorian..  And one of the best live albums of all time is about to get considerably better. The Allman Brothers Band's cornerstone LP, At Fillmore East, compiled from the four sets recorded on the weekend of March 12-13, 1971, has been expanded, stretching over six CDs with fifteen unreleased tracks.  The album is also available as an expanded 4LP Edition as well as a 3 Blu-Ray Audio Edition

New Release Round-Up 07-22-14

New Release Round-Up 07-22-14

Hot on the heels of their acclaimed album Indigo Meadow, The Black Angels release their new EP Clear Lake Forest featuring 7 entirely new tracks.  Originally released as a limited edition 10" Vinyl for Record Store Day the EP is now available on CD or Limited Edition Clear 12" Vinyl.

Ever since his single War Sweater jettisoned him into stardom five years ago (thanks to a game-changing plug on One Tree Hill), Wakey!Wakey! has built a following that's as passionate as his compositions. Built on broader themes such as rescue and hope, Salvation is the follow-up to Wakey!Wakey!'s acclaimed debut, Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last time I Saw You.

Yes - Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth is the first YES album featuring new singer Jon Davison along with bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, and keyboardist Geoff Downes and follows on the heels of the successful and acclaimed 2011 release, Fly From Here. The new album was produced by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, The Who, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Cars, Foreigner, Journey, Cheap Trick etc.) You can preview the album as well as watch the Lyric Video for the amazing as ever track In A World Of Our Own here.



In the grand tradition of great pop duos like Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, Captain and Tenille, Simon and Garfunkel, Hall and Oates, and Shields and Yarnell; Got a Girl is the blossoming collaboration between Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Smashed; The Spectacular Now) and superproducer Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura (Gorillaz; Deltron 3030).  On their debut album I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, Got a Girl serves up a sweet and sharply carbonated cocktail of the epic, the baroque, the absurd by turns sentimental and postmodern, and in total, utterly irresistible.


Mike Doughty - Live At Kens HouseLast year Mike Doughty went on tour playing only songs from his old 90's band, Soul Coughing. The last 4 days of the tour, Pete Wilhoit, Catherine Popper, and Doughty himself recorded an album of the Soul Coughing songs they played during the tour performed live.  Live At Ken's House is available now and you can preview the album here and watch the video for his reworking of the track Super Bon Bon

British synthpop artist La Roux returns with Trouble In Paradise which may well be the best pop album we will hear this year.  And The Raveonettes Pe'ahi is the duo’s finest effort in years and a great example of what shoegazey noise-pop can do in 2014.

New Release Round-Up 07-15-14

New Release Round-Up 07-15-14

Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business

Morrissey is one of the few iconic musicians making radical, counter-cultural work, and Harvest Records is proud to release his latest album World Peace Is None Of Your Business which explores the tragedy of human apathy in our turbulent, modern era. Morrissey's career as a writer reaches new lyrical heights but maintains his signature humor, drama, and emotional longing. World Peace Is None Of Your Business was produced by Joe Chiccarelli at La Fabrique Studios in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as watch the moving video for his spoken word track Earth Is The Loneliest Planet here.  

Despite the internal lineup changes and increased success that has followed Rise Against it is clear that on their seventh album The Black Market they have not lost any of the angst and soul that made the Chicago activist punks such a thrilling band in the first place. Sure they have become more melodic but the defiant energy and aggression is all still there, as witnessed on their lead single I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore.

Jason Mraz - YesJason Mraz’s fifth studio release, YES! sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. “YES!,” produced by Mraz along with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Rilo Kiley), was recorded in rural Omaha, Nebraska and inland Oceanside, California. While somewhat intimate and esoteric, “YES!” still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as check out the beautiful video for his single Love Someone.


After playing live together since 2008, Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones and Catherine Popper have at last taken their collaboration into the studio.  As Puss N Boots they release their album No Fools, No Fun which includes five original songs two each from Dobson and Popper, one from Jones and seven spirited cover tunes, all culled from Puss n Boots live repertoire.

Luluc - PasserbyPasserby is the second album by Australian/Brooklyn band Luluc; it is their first international release and their Sub Pop debut. Co-produced by the band and The National's Aaron Dessner, Passerby shows off all of Luluc's best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo's debut while adding textures built with a cadre of impressive players. Band influences like Simon and Garfunkel and Gillian Welch (and, of course, Nick Drake) can be felt throughout Passerby, while the poignant restraint aligns them well with label mates Low. The album is available now and you can preview the album here which includes their incredible first single Without A Face




Plus there are other great, new releases including Trampled by Turtles with their seventh studio album Wild Animals where themes of impermanence run deep, both lyrically and sonically. Hercules & Love Affair’s third and most versatile album to date, The Feast Of The Broken Heart sees visionary founder Andy Butler and his ever-evolving musical collective pushing the boundaries of house music, disco, and pop to create a collection of stunningly original new dancefloor anthems.  Spiritualized release a set of limited edition vinyl re issues which include Fucked Up InsideLet It Come Down and Royal Albert Hall, October 10 1997:Live. With his new album Terms of My SurrenderJohn Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. Bleachers unleash their new album Strange Desire.  The highly anticipated album was written and produced by Grammy Award winning musician Jack Antonoff with co-producer John Hill (MIA, Jay Z, Empire of the Sun) as well as Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Yaz, Erasure) and others.  And Jerry Garcia releases GarciaLive Volume Four: March 22nd, 1978 Veteran's Hall, a 2 CD Set featuring over 2 hours of previously unreleased music mastered from original soundboard recordings. The fourth installment of the recently launched archival series presents the Jerry Garcia Band's performance from March 22nd, 1978 at Veteran's Hall in Sebastopol, California.

New CD: $79.98
One of the best live albums of all time is about to get considerably better. The Allman Brothers Band's cornerstone LP, At Fillmore East, compiled from the four sets recorded on the weekend of March 12-13, 1971, has been expanded, stretching over six CDs with fifteen unreleased tracks. Additionally, The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings contains the complete June 27 performance during the iconic venue-s final weekend, after the band was handpicked by impresario Bill Graham to headline closing night. The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings captures the most inspired improvisational rock unit ever at the peak of their prodigious powers, blazing their way through extended instrumental elaborations, so taut and virtuosic, that the crowds that packed the Fillmore East on those memorable nights were utterly transfixed. When it came to live performance, no other band could touch the Allmans.

New CD: $13.98   $11.98

Tyler Connolly, vocalist and guitarist of Theory Of A Deadman commented, "We went back to where we belong on this record, back to the angst, back to the darkness. We veered off the road a bit on this one but it took us right to where we needed to be." Connolly expanded further on the band's inspiration behind "Drown" stating, " "Drown" is about being alone, the feeling of being washed away and left to your own devices. We've all felt that way at some point in our lives; unable to stay afloat, we sink to the bottom which always seems easier in the end than fighting your way back to the surface."

Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens - Cold World Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens - Cold World
New CD: $14.98   $12.98
Digital: $9.99
At the heart of it, Cold World is a Soul record but the cross section of sub-genres the album weaves through makes it difficult to label it plainly as such. There are tracks like ‘Sinner’, ‘Heaven Is Mine’, and ‘Humble Me’ that capture the group’s penchant for Soul grooves, seasoned with Naomi’s tough vocal delivery, and the Queens melodic interplay, which captures perhaps better than any of the other tracks, NSGQ’s live show. Then there’s some hard funk by way of ‘Bound for the Promised Land’, ‘Cold World’, and ‘Thank You Lord’ – the percolating church rave-up of ‘Get Up, Child’, the country heavy ‘One Day’, and ‘I Earned Mine’, and the bouncing rumba of ‘Everybody Knows.’ This album is a menagerie of Soul music at its finest, untied by the strong message-laden lyrics.

Lese Majesty is the second album by Shabazz Palaces, the Seattle-based experimental hip-hop group featuring Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael Butler, formerly of Digable Planets) and Fly Guy Dai (aka Tendai Maraire).

Paris Blues [Movie] - Paris Blues Paris Blues [Movie] - Paris Blues
New Blu-Ray: $29.95
In Paris Blues, Ram Bowen (Paul Newman) and Eddie Cook (Sidney Poitier) are two expatriate jazz musicians living in Paris where, unlike America at the time, Jazz musicians are celebrated and racism is a non-issue. When they meet and fall in love with two young American girls, Lillian and Connie, who are vacationing in France, Ram and Eddie must decide whether they should move back to America with them, or stay in Paris for the freedom it allows them. Ram, who wants to be a serious composer, finds Paris more exciting than America and is reluctant to give up his music for a relationship, and Eddie wants to stay for the city's more tolerant racial atmosphere. A virtual love letter to both jazz and the city of Paris, Martin Ritt's film, like a jazz composition, develops several themes simultaneously; it riffs on Eddie's reluctance to face his roots as well as Ram's conflict between his love for Lillian and his need to live the artist's life. With its Duke Ellington score, excellent cast, and a breathtaking "Battle Royal" with Louis Armstrong, Paris Blues is both an excellent drama and a must see film for any jazz lover. Featuring an Oscar® nominated score by the great Duke Ellington.
