New Release Round-Up 02-24-17

RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway

RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom HighwayRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway - NonesuchRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway
Freedom Highway, Grammy Award–winner and 2017 Grammy nominee Rhiannon Giddens follow-up to her highly praised debut album Tomorrow Is My Turn, is released by Nonesuch Records. The record includes nine original songs Giddens wrote or co-wrote while she and her band toured after Tomorrow Is My Turn's 2015 release, along with a traditional song and two civil rights-era songs, "Birmingham Sunday" and Staple Singers' well-known "Freedom Highway," from which the album takes its name. Giddens and the band will tour the U.S. in the spring.

CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH - The Tourist - Clap Your Hands
The Tourist nods to Alec Ounsworth's musical heroes--a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. ''Better Off'' and ''The Vanity Of Trying'' are lush, keyboard-augmented songs, while ''A Chance To Cure'' and ''Ambulance Chaser'' are rhythmically askew, and the sighing ''Loose Ends'' is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock.

THE FEELIES - In Between - Bar/None Records
Impose Magazine recently called The Feelies “… one of the most influential bands in the history of alternative and underground music” and Rolling Stone said that they are “a template of formal perfection.” They have influenced bands like REM, Yo La Tengo, Real Estate and WEEZER, Now during their 40th anniversary comes In Between their first album of all new material in over 6 years. While working the VU template they are famous for this album brings some interesting new sonics into the mix. The album is both quieter and decibolically furious than anything they’ve ever done.

PISSED JEANS - Why Love Now - Sub Pop
Pissed Jeans have been making gnarly noise for 13 years, and on their fifth album, Why Love Now, the male-fronted quartet is taking aim at the mundane discomforts of modern life—from fetish webcams to office-supply deliveries. "Rock bands can retreat to the safety of what rock bands usually sing about. So 60 years from now, when no one has a telephone, bands will be writing songs like, 'I'm waiting for her to call me on my telephone.' Kids are going to be like, 'Grandpa, tell me, what was that?' I'd rather not shy away from talking about the internet or interactions in 2016," says frontman Matt Korvette. Pissed Jeans' gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit make the band—Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)—a release valve for a world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo itself. Why Love Now picks at the bursting seams that are barely holding 21st-century life together. Take the grinding rave-up "The Bar Is Low," which, according to Korvette, is "about how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and music. There's no guy that isn't a total creep." 

ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War

ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The WarALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War - New West RecordsALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War
Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons) and mixed/engineered by UK-bred young-gun Eddie Spear, All The Witches' Sleeping Through The War is the quartet’s most bold and well-crafted record to date. The album’s creation marks the first time in the band’s history that a record was written before entering the studio. This process allowed for an alignment of the band’s art, desire and time. Convening in Nashville for only six days after a year of relentlessly touring their New West Records debut Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, the band’s spirit coalesced in a rhythm of statement and melody that simply needs to be heard...repeatedly. With the guidance of Cobb and Spear, Sleeping Through The War captures the truest energy of the group, full blast, fun and contemplative. The record was made with volume in mind. Sleeping Through The War is meant to be played loud, cranked up and without reservation. Feel it live through your stereo system or listen to it speak in tongues through your headphones. The sounds are nothing without the songs, and the songs are nothing without the lyrics. This record is a result of constant touring, world travel, overstimulated/divided humanity, and a learning of awareness and compassion.

LITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker

LITTLE BIG TOWN - The BreakerLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker - Capitol NashvilleLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker
Little Big Town release their seventh studio album, The Breaker (Capitol Records Nashville). The album, produced by Jay Joyce, features lead single, Better Man, written by Taylor Swift, and is currently climbing the charts at radio. The Breaker is about letting go of things that break you, it's about the new ground you try and break as a human being and as a musician. Sometimes you're the one that's broken and sometimes you re the breaker, said Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. It's a sentimental record because we're feeling super grateful for our friends and family and the chance to share the next chapter.

UPCOMING RELEASES

DIA FRAMPTON - Bruises

DIA FRAMPTON - BruisesDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises - Nettwerk RecordsDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises
Dia Frampton writes cinematic pop that inspires and pulls at the heart. She has spent the past ten years building towards this moment, beginning at just fifteen with her sister (in Meg and Dia) and enchanting millions on a then-upstart show called The Voice. Her new music draws from all of the elements she has learned from - soaring pop vocals, orchestral grandeur and a never-ending DIY spirit. The aptly titled Bruises is the sophomore solo album. Set for release on March 3, the 12 songs form an autobiographical narrative arc that intersperses light and dark, traveling from self-doubt to fierce determination and will reconnect her with her large fanbase (400K combined social reach) to showcase her more mature sound. Her last album RED debuted at #1 on the Heatseekers chart.

Daniel Corrigan's "Heyday" Book Now Available

Daniel Corrigan's Heyday - 35 Years of Music in Minneapolis is now available in both stores and online.

A look back at more than three decades of music in Minneapolis through the lens of Daniel Corrigan, one of the most prolific and renowned photographers on the scene. Featuring an introductory essay by music journalist Danny Sigelman, Heyday puts into context Corrigan’s role as a chronicler of rock-and-roll and illustrates the array of talented artists who have come through the Twin Cities, across a wide range of musical styles and genres.

The photos depict legendary Minnesota artists like Prince, the Time, and the bands of Minneapolis’s influential indie-rock scene, such as the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum, Babes in Toyland, the Jayhawks, and others. Corrigan was also on hand to capture national and international stars who came through the Twin Cities, everyone from the Clash, Iggy Pop, and the Ramones to Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, and AC/DC. Featuring some of his most recent concert work, the book highlights many of the hottest local and global acts of today, including Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Mumford and Sons, Lauryn Hill, Die Antwoord, Tegan and Sara, Metric, Doomtree, Bon Iver, Atmosphere, and many more.

Rolling Stone has praised Judith Hill for her “stellar powerhouse vocals.” In addition to penning and performing her own material, Judith – who wrote her first song at the age of four – has backed such artists as Stevie Wonder and the late Michael Jackson.

Director Morgan Neville tells her story in the acclaimed 20 Feet From Stardom, a film that shines the spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. The film has won the Film Critics Award for Best Documentary, an Academy Award for Best Documentary and the 2015 Grammy for Best Music Film.

Hill was a contestant on season four of “The Voice” and has already garnered much praise for her live performances as opener for Josh Groban, John Legend and Prince both in the US and the UK.

Jon Bream Book Signing - Dylan: Disc By Disc & Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin

Jon Bream Book Signing - Dylan: Disc By Disc & Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin

Electric Fetus - Minneapolis

Friday, December 11th - 3:00-5:00 p.m.

The Electric Fetus welcomes legendary Star Tribune rock critic Jon Bream back to the store for a special book signing appearance. Jon will sign copies of his new book "Dylan: Disc By Disc" and the 2nd edition paperback release of "Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin."

Bream's "Dylan: Disc by Disc" features each of Bob Dylan's studio LPs--thirty-six releases in all. Rock 'n' roll musicians, songwriters, and critics sound off about each release, bringing from the shadows not only Dylan's extraordinary musical accomplishments but the factors in his life that influenced his musical expressions. From "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" to "Blonde on Blonde," from "Blood on the Tracks" to "Shadows in the Night," "Dylan: Disc by Disc" rouses generations of Dylan fans with a unique, hip, stunning exposition spanning the music legend's storied career.

Bream's "Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin"...this second edition of the history of rock's heaviest band gives you even more reasons to rock!

This all-star tribute features many of today's top rock journalists from Rolling Stone, CREEM, Billboard, and more, as well as reflections on the band from some of rock's greatest performers, including members of the Kinks, Aerosmith, Heart, Mott the Hoople, the Minutemen, the Hold Steady, and many more.

Glorious concert and behind-the-scenes photography cover the band from the first shows in 1968 as the New Yardbirds through today. More than 450 rare concert posters, backstage passes, tickets, LPs and singles, t-shirts, buttons, and more illustrate the book. A discography and tour itinerary complete the package, making a book as epic as the band it documents.

While Jon is in the store, sign up for your chance to win a Bob Dylan or Led Zeppelin box set!

This event is free and open to all ages. Don't miss your chance to get a personalized copy of these beautiful books for yourself or the music lover in your life.

Author Rick Shefchik - "Everybody's Heard About the Bird..." Book Release Party & Jam Session

Electric Fetus - Minneapolis

Wednesday, Nov. 11th - 7:00 p.m.

Author Rick Shefchik - "Everybody's Heard About the Bird..." Book Release Party & Jam Session

An all-star lineup of some of the most successful and accomplished rock ‘n’ roll musicians in Twin Cities history will join Rick Shefchik as he introduces his new book, "Everybody’s Heard About the Bird: The True Story of 1960s Rock 'n' Roll in Minnesota," at the Electric Fetus on Wednesday, November 11, at 7 p.m.

Rick will host a discussion and jam session with Tony Andreason of the Trashmen (“Surfin Bird”), Dale Menten and Tom Klugherz of the Gestures (“Run, Run, Run”), Jim Johnson and Doni Larson of the Underbeats and Gypsy (“Footstompin’,” “Gypsy Queen”), Jim Donna of the Castaways (“Liar, Liar”), Larry Wiegand of the Rave-Ons, South 40 and Crow (“Evil Woman”), Phil Berdahl of the Stillroven, Ron Butwin of the Escapades and Mike Waggoner of the Bops. Afterwards, Rick and the musicians will sign copies of the book.

"Everybody's Heard about the Bird" is the first comprehensive history to trace the evolution of Minnesota 1960s rock and roll. This behind-the-scenes, up-close-and-personal account relates how a handful of Minnesota rock bands erupted out of a small Midwest market and made it big. From Augie Garcia and Bobby Vee to The Trashmen and the Castaways, "Everybody’s Heard about the Bird" reveals how this monumental era of Minnesota rock music in the 1960s evolved.

This event is free and open to all ages. We hope you'll join us for this very special evening.

Adam Levy In-store Performance and Signing

Adam Levy In-store Performance and Signing

Electric Fetus - Minneapolis

Wednesday, November 4th - 7:00 p.m.

The Electric Fetus invites you to a very special evening with The Honeydogs' Adam Levy.  Adam will perform songs from and sign copies of his new release Naubinway. Naubinway is available Oct. 23rd on CD and LP.

In 2012, Adam lost his son Daniel to suicide. He spent much of the next three years grieving and sharing his story in public forums before sitting down to write songs again. What came out was Naubinway, an album of exquisite songcraft that focuses on the themes of love, loss and grace. Augmenting the album is Daniel’s stunning artwork, which is featured on the cover and in a 32-page booklet. Grammy-award winner Joe Henry calls the album “love in action, a remarkable piece of work.” It will leave listeners moved, inspired and forever altered.

We hope you will join us for what will be an undoubtedly moving event with Adam Levy. This performance is free and open to all ages. Kosher refreshments will also be served.

The Big Day you have all been waiting for is happening this Saturday (April 18th) and we know you are all as excited as we are.  As always, there are some great releases this year and if you have not already made your list and etched the artwork in your mind ready for the hunt, you can check out the full list of releases here on our site or of course you can check recordstoreday.com for more details.  Note: We have no guarantee over which releases we will have available and how many, but feel free to contact us to see if we have ordered any particular release.

Of course Record Store Day is not just about the releases, it is a day to celebrate Independent Record Stores and we hope that you will be joining us for the whole day as we will have lots of great celebrations going on.

See you all soon and good luck.

BLUE NOTE AUTHORIZED DEALER

BLUE NOTE AUTHORIZED DEALER

As a store who has a particular focus on Blue Note artists, we are very proud to announce that we have teamed up with Record Store Day and the legendary Blue Note Records to celebrate their 75th Anniversary year by signing on at the creation to become a BLUE NOTE AUTHORIZED DEALER.  Blue Note will be reissuing 100 titles from their legendary catalog over the course of the year, and as a Blue Note Authorized Dealer (BNAD), we will be the place to find those reissues, as well as a monthly EXCLUSIVE reissue, which you can find first, and for a limited time ONLY at Blue Note Authorized Dealers. Blue Note Records devotees and folks wanting to learn more about this celebrated label will want to seek out these special releases. 

The 75th Anniversary celebration is being personally guided by Blue Note Records President Don Was, and this big fan of record stores was also involved in the creation of BNADs:  

“It's impossible to overstate the beauty of the serotonin and dopamine rush that one experiences by browsing thru a REAL live Record Store! Speaking as a music fan, I'm so grateful to the independent retailers who've kept this tradition alive. The history of Blue Note is inextricably interwoven with these incredible stores... It's a great honor and a very natural progression for us to partner-up with them in this uber-cool Authorized Dealership program.”

Check out the list of Blue Note Authorized Dealer releases and the special Anniversary reissues HERE.

Spooky Ghost is a group of young, handsome, athletic 19 year olds with a love for 90s indie rock and playing the Electric Fetus. Sadly, most of the band will be out of town on the 14th, but their handsome, athletic lead singer Jesse Pedersen isn’t afraid to tackle the gig solo.

3:00 p.m. – Stereo Confession

Stereo Confession brings their sweet surf rock jams with a slice of pop and a touch of punk to the Fetus stage. You may have already heard their single “Video Games” on 89.3 The Current. Like what you hear? Look for them at the Basilica Block Party too!
