100 Lovers by Devotchka :

Product Description

For more than a decade, DeVotchKa has melded its influences from Eastern European wedding bands to Norteno ballads into an authentic and totally original blend of popular music. The band’s haunting, romantic sound evokes timeless images, attracting thousands of fans to their sold-out live shows. DeVotchKa s sound has proved particularly attractive to filmmakers, who have used DeVotchka songs to score countless films and commercials, most famously Little Miss Sunshine, for which they received a Grammy nod. With the release of the band’s fifth album, 100 Lovers, the band returns to the epic settings of the Arizona desert with producer Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case) to create a new collection of haunting stories, with songs like The Man From San Sebastian delivering on their intriguing titles with enigmatic lyrics and cinematic soundscapes.

Hunky Dory by David Bowie

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Album Review:

From Amazon.com

The precursor to Bowie’s masterpiece, The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Hunky Dory points in many of the same musical directions as Ziggy, with Bowie camping it up outrageously through a mixture of cabaret piano, coquettish lyrics and soaring vocals. After the hard rock “The Man Who Sold The World”, Mick Ronson’s guitar is turned down in favour of plenty of piano and acoustic guitar, as Bowie proves his mettle as a masterful singer-songwriter. Not a dull note is struck on the whole album, which flits from opener “Changes” to the vampy “Oh! You Pretty Thing” to the heart-wrenching “Life On Mars” with a seemingly impeccable ear for a tune. Flirty, sexy and irresistibly seductive. –Amber Cowan

The Man Who Sold The World by David Bowie:

From Amazon.com:

With 1970’s The Man Who Sold the World, David Bowie set aside his pop and singer-songwriter aspirations and headed in a harder-rocking direction. Producer Tony Visconti provided a thick, dense setting with guitarist Mick Ronson playing the role of guitar hero to Bowie’s megalomaniac frontman; think Keith Richards and Mick Jagger sprinkled with fairy dust. The new approach flowered on Hunky Dory, but the outline for the master plan is here. The title track, “The Width of a Circle,” and “All the Madmen” are essential Bowie, as he slips from cryptic to straightforward, celebratory wordplay. –Rob O’Connor

Big Star MP3 Double Album:

If you grew up in the 70s then you might remember Big Star. Though they were together for a short time initially their influence on the power pop style could be felt for years. In the early 80’s, R.E.M. acknowledged Big Star as one of their influences and their music developed more of a cult following. You may recognize one of their hits as the theme song from That ’70s Show, a cover version of “In The Street.”

What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye

Album Review:

Amazon.com essential recording

Sly & The Family Stone might have psychedelicized soul music, but Marvin Gaye personalized it. Although the powers-that-were Motown didn’t even want to release the record, the unexpected success of What’s Going On, issued in 1971, inspired Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, and just about every other black artist on the planet to take greater responsibility for their music and its meaning. Gaye co-wrote the songs and produced the album, flavoring it with layer upon layer of his own multi-tracked vocals, oceans of hand percussion, strings, flutes, and jazzy horn solos. Spacey and loose as a spliff-fueled Sunday afternoon jam in the park, the nine songs all played like a hit single. The title track–inspired by his brother’s return from the Vietnam War–and the obvious social commentary of “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)” and “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” actually were hit singles. Two other tracks (“Wholly Holy” and “Save the Children”) would inspire hit covers by Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross, respectively. Nevertheless, What’s Going On sounds as fresh today as it did the week that it came out. Recommended reading: Divided Soul: The Life of Marvin Gaye by David Ritz (McGraw-Hill, 1985). –Don Waller

Ring by Glasser

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Product Description

Glasser is one woman, Cameron Mesirow, and “Ring” is her debut album. Her intimate, luxurious music resonated widely on last year’s EP “Apply.” For this new album, recorded in Los Angeles and Stockholm, she worked closely with producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Foreign Born, We Are Scientists) and Fever Ray’s Van Rivers and Subliminal Kid. “Ring” displays a newly rich vision of her post-pop sound. Laced with strings, woodwinds and simple, angelic vocal melodies, “Ring” has the universal lure of a lullaby and a hymn.

Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Product Description

2011 debut full length from the Folk/Country duo. The Civil Wars consists of John Paul White, hailing from Florence, AL and Joy Williams, originally from Santa Cruz, CA, but now residing in East Nashville. The duo’s chance meeting a year and a half ago fueled an immediate songwriting chemistry and creative synergy. Their second show ever, performed at a sold out Eddie’s Attic, was recorded and released as a free digital album. Of the duo, Reg’s Coffee House host, Scott Register, praises: ‘In my 13 years on the radio, few of the artists I’ve championed had as immediate a reaction as The Civil Wars. When I first spun `Poison & Wine’ listeners couldn’t get enough of it and wanted to own it immediately. This band has the `it’ factor that you look for. Don’t miss out.’
