Sage Motel
Colored Vinyl - New - CLMN-12040
Sealed 2022 Gatefold Original, Limited Edition Indie Exlcusive Colour Pressing On Orange With Black Swirl Vinyl. First Press Run Of 5500 Copies. Includes Download. "Monophonics Couldn't Have Been Faulted For Feeling Emboldened By The Success Of "Last One Standing," The Widescreen Seven-minute Centerpiece Of Their 2020 Fifth Album It's Only Us. Album Six, The San Franciscan Band's Fourth Led By Do-a-lot Frontman Kelly Finnigan, Doesn't Truly Go Farther Out From A Musical Standpoint, But It's Presented As A Concept Lp That Welcomes The Listener Into The Titular Storied (Fictitious) Inn With No Specified Location. "Check In" Sets The Tone For Sage Motel In Faintly Ominous Fashion, And From There, Monophonics Continue To Sharpen Their Vision Of Heavy Psychedelic Soul, The Title Track Recalling Most Evidently Marvin Gaye -- The Late-'60s End Of His Studio Partnership With Psych-soul Demigod Norman Whitfield, His Self-produced 1971 Landmark And 1972's "Trouble Man," And Even The Later "I Want You." After The Fairly Standard Co-dependent Lover Scene In "Sage Motel" Itself, Finnigan, Wracked With Anguish And Regret, Slips Into A Pitch-black Chamber. Sweetening Elements Like The Mallet Percussion, Woodwinds, String Section, And Background Voices Make Everything Go Down Easier. Finnigan's Wounded Falsetto, "So Empty And Cold," And Nearly Muttered Confessions -- Like His Gaze Is Fixed On An Empty Glass Inches From His Chin -- Fill The Rest Of The First Side. He Puts All Of His Chest Into Side Two. "Love You Better" Is An Embittered Belter, A Fiery Exchange With The Backing Vocalists. The Pace Slows For The Dizzied Devotion Ballad "Never Stop Saying These Words" And Recharges For The Sweeping And Stomping "Warpaint." And Then Comes The Knockout Finale, "Crash & Burn," A Down, Not-quite-out Breakup Ballad That Makes Mere Survival Sound Like A Hard-fought Triumph. While Sincerity Emanates From Finnigan In Every Song Before It -- The Singer's Empathy Enables Him To Personify Characters Convincingly -- The Words And Emotion Here Pour Out, Like They Had To Be Released, Requiring No Imagination. "All I Know Is I Live My Life Through The Pressures Of Everyone's Eyes" And The Finishing "I'm So Selfish" Are Doozies." AMG Review By Andy Kellman. ... more

This Is A Photograph
New - LP - DOC316
Sealed 2022 Original, Standard Black Vinyl Edition. Includes Custom Printed Inner Sleeve And Insert. "Singer/songwriter Kevin Morby's Output Has Been Varied But Consistent Since He Broke Camp From His Earlier Bands Woods And Babies And Started Making Metered, Contemplative Solo Work. Over A Quick Succession Of Albums, Morby's Songs Took Notes From Rootsy Rock Icons Like Cohen, Dylan, Springsteen, And Young, Expanding On Their Templates With His Own Lyrical Perspectives And A Distinctive Approach That Resulted In A Mysterious, Slinky Brand Of Songwriting. Seventh Album This Is A Photograph Sees Morby Taking Significant Steps Forward With His Craft, Both In Terms Of The Album's Considered Production And The Deep Soul Searching Qualities Of The Songs Themselves. The Album Was Set In Motion After Morby's Father Experienced A Medical Emergency, Which Led Morby Into A Phase Of Intense Reflection On Family, Aging, Mortality, And The Cruel Inevitabilities Of Time. Morby Traveled To Memphis, Tennessee After His Father Recovered, Holing Up In The Historic Peabody Hotel And Writing The Songs That Would Become This Is A Photograph. The Music Becomes A Strange Synthesis Of Morby's Heavy Personal Reflections And The Gritty Charm He Soaked Up From His Time In Memphis. The Titular Opening Track Is One Of His Most Clearly Rendered Lyrical Statements To Date, Straightforwardly Narrating The Feeling Of Looking At Photos Of His Parents In Their Youth, Strong And Ready To Take On The World, And Contrasting The Feelings Those Images Give Him With The Present Reality Of Their Health Beginning To Fade As They Age. The Song Is Built Around A Circular Riff With A Twangy Funk To It, And It Builds From Acoustic Guitars To Driving Drums, Horns, And Backup Singers. The Melancholic Rumination On A Lost Loved One "Bittersweet, Tn" Dials The Energy Down A Bit, With Banjo Plucks And Gentle Guest Vocals From Nashville Indie Folk Singer Erin Rae. It's One Of Several Songs That Employs Elaborate String Arrangements, Elevating The Tune From Morby's Usual Strong Songcraft Into Something Both More Ethereal And More Expressive Of The Song's Complex Emotions. Strings Add Not Just To The Gentler Songs, But To The Soul-tinged Stroll Of "Five Easy Pieces" And The Intricately Arranged "Stop Before I Cry." Morby Uses The Songs Mostly As Restrained Backgrounds For His Poetic Reflections From His Soul Journey, But Throws In A Few Rockers For Good Measure. "A Random Act Of Kindness" Slowly Gains Steam In The Same Way So Many War On Drugs Songs Do, And "Rock Bottom" Cuts Straight To The Chase With Distorted Guitars, Cowbell, And Howls Of Abandon. Morby Reveals His Fears, Joys, And Hopes With These Songs In A Way More Direct And On The Surface Than Any Of His Other Albums. This Heightened Vulnerability, In Conjunction With Some Of His Most Involved And Best-sounding Arrangements, Make This Is A Photograph One Of The Best Chapters In An Already Impressive Catalog; One That Finds A New Artistic Depth As It Faces Some Of Life's Eternal Concerns."

Bronco
New - LP - 19439977281
Sealed 2022 2LP Gatefold Original, US Pressing. Includes Custom Printed Inner Sleeves. "If You're Going To Reinvent Yourself, There's No Point In Being Shy About It, And Orville Peck Has Learned That Lesson Well. Transforming Into A Cosmic Cowboy Took Vision And Hustle, And Peck Has Not Only Made It Work, He's Shown He Knows How To Grow Within His Persona. Peck Has The Talent To Pull It Off As A Vocalist And A Songwriter, And As Strong As His 2019 Debut Album Pony Was, 2022's Bronco Builds On It In Every Way. If The Sonic Vistas Of Pony Evoked A Classic John Ford Western, Bronco Takes Him From Stagecoach To The Searchers, With A Bigger, More Colorful, And More Nuanced Variation On Those Themes. It Helps That Peck Had Greater Resources At His Disposal This Time Out, And Working With A Major-label Budget Allowed Him To Record At First-class Facilities In Nashville, And Augment His Road Band (Which Includes Members Of The Canadian Indie Rock Band Frigs) With A Number Of Session Players And Punch Brothers Banjo Picker Noam Pikelny. In This Case, The Extra Money Went Toward Detail, Not Excess Gloss; Bronco Maintains The Spirit And Sound Of Peck's Debut, But Builds On It With Added Instrumental Details And Atmospheres, And He Wisely Does So Without Cluttering The Landscape, Still Leaving Enough Space For The Dynamics That Serve This Music So Well. If Anyone Feared Peck Would Fall Victim To The Sophomore Slump, He's Dodged That Bullet With Style On Bronco. He Has No Trouble Writing Songs That Have The Dramatic Sweep His Roy Orbison Meets Morrissey Voice Demands, And As A Lyricist, He's An Effective Storyteller Who Doesn't Shy Away From A Dollop Of Melodrama While Still Making His Characters Ring True. The Artfully Woven Queer Subtext Of Pony Is Present And Accounted For, While The Universality Of His Lonely Cowboy's Mingled Desires For Independence And Companionship Will Make This Speak To All Sorts Of Listeners. And While Songs Like "Daytona Sand," "Lafayette," And "City Of Gold" Fit Pony's Template, The Caffeine-addled Rockabilly Of His Road Diary "Any Turn," The Countrypolitan Grace Of "C'mon Baby, Cry," The Spectral Acoustic Arrangement Of "Hexie Mountains," And The Twang-infused Rock Of The Title Cut Demonstrate This Cowboy Can Go Anywhere He Pleases And Make Himself At Home. Orville Peck's Image As The Glamorous And Subversive Masked Man Of Country Music Still Feels A Bit Gimmicky, But In The Grand Show Biz Tradition, It's A Character That Puts The Spotlight Firmly On A Genuine Talent, And Bronco Is A Glorious Achievement That Fulfills Peck's Promise And Then Some."

Red Balloon
New - LP - B003473801
Sealed 2022 Original Black Vinyl Pressing. "Tank And The Bangas Waste No Time Speaking To The Times On Red Balloon, The New Orleanians' Opalescent Second Album For Verve Forecast. The Band Skips And Bops Along On The Opening "Mr. Bluebell" As Tarriona "Tank" Ball, Lyrically Clever And Vocally Nimble As Ever, Checks Off The U.s. Capitol Attack, Prescription Drug Dependency, Social Media, And Smartphones, Among Other Ills And Issues, Ending With A Sweet-sarcastic "Desensitized Is The New Wave," Repeated Several Times For Effect. Wayne Brady, In The Role Of Paranoiac Radio Dj -- The First Of The Album's Several Jocks -- Heightens The Tension By Helping The Band Segue Into The Agitated Electro-trap Of "Anxiety," A Stream-of-consciousness Dispatch From A Padded Cell. "Communion In My Cup" Later Contains Some Of Ball's Finest Blithe Boasts ("Man, I'm Michael In A Skirt/bitch, I'm Prince In A Blouse") But Later Sniffs, "Look At Your President, Look At Your Government -- You Feeling Powerless." There's A Good Amount Of Say-what-now Rambunctiousness With "Who's In Charge," Where Ball Handles The Sighing Intro, The Fully Amped Call-and-response, And Cartoonish Interjections, And Throughout "Big," A Swinging And Bounding Collaboration With An Operatic Big Freedia. Listeners With An Aversion To The Zeitgeist Razzle-dazzle And Rambunctious Frivolity Are Very Well Served. "Why Try" And "No Id," Located In The Middle, Are Supple Disco-funk Throwbacks; The Latter Is As Bubbly-tough As Anything Off Evelyn "Champagne" King's First Album (If With 2022 Attitude). They Lead To A Second Half Where The Madness Is Mostly Mellow. There's The Earth, Wind & Fire-meets-mtume (In The French Quarter) Romantic Sway Of "Cafe Du Monde," Featuring Jamison Ross And Trombone Shorty. "Jellyfish" Is Old-school Romantic Escape, While "Heavy" Is The Most Seductive Song They've Recorded Yet. Moreover, Good Luck To Any Band That Strives To Create Songs Of Irrepressible Spirit That Are As Beautiful And Soul Nourishing As "Stolen Fruit" Or The Lalah Hathaway Collaboration "Where Do We All Go." It's No Coincidence That The First Of The Two Mentions Stevie Wonder By Name And That The Finale Recalls That Artist's Peerless 1972-1976 Period." AMG Review By Andy Kellman. ... more

Back In Your Life
New Import - MOVLP2462
Sealed 2022 180gm Black Vinyl Audiophile Reissue From Music On Vinyl. "Sweet, Fun, And Honest Aptly Describe This 1979 Long-player By Jonathan Richman. And While Some Singers Badly Fumble At Being Innocently Possessed, Richman Keeps It All Engaging With His Unbridled Enthusiasm, Wit, And Crack Songs. This Was Richman's First Solo Venture Since Forming The Modern Lovers In The Early '70s, And The Newfound Freedom Shows On Loose Doo Wop Rockers Like "Party In The Woods Tonight" And Such Sesame Street-issue Nature Odes As "Buzz Buzz Buzz"; The Breezy Tone Is Further Plied On Surf-toned Instrumental "Lover Please" And A Harmony And Handclapping-rich "Lydia." But It's Not All Passing Fancy, As Richman Also Waxes Sincere And Lonely On Strong, Yet Often Hushed Sides Like "Affection," "Emaline," And The Title Track, His Terminally Congested Vocals And Jangly Guitar Chords Perfectly Echoing The Wistful Sentiment. Recent Modern Lovers Graduates: Start Here." AMG Review By Stephen Cook. ... more
