New Drive-By Truckers Album “American Band” Out 9/30 – Hear “Surrender Under Protest”

ATO is pleased to announce the new album from the Drive-By Truckers,  American Band, in stores September 30th. A powerful and provocative work, American Band is made up of 11 new songs (split almost evenly between Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood compositions). Listen to the first single “Surrender Under Protest” at NPR‘s Songs We Love.

Pre-order American Band: Official Store | iTunes | Amazon

Hood says of the record: 

“American Band” is a sort of rock and roll call to arms as well as a musical reset button for our band and the country we live in. Most of all, we look at it as the beginnings of some conversations that we, as a people very much need to begin having if we ever hope to break through the divisions that are threatening to tear us apart. 

Drive-By Truckers are celebrating our twentieth anniversary as a band in an election year where some people are trying to define what it is to be American. Definitions based on some outdated ideology of prejudice and fear. We are loudly proclaiming that those people don’t speak for us. America is and always has been a land of immigrants and ideals. Ideals that we have often fallen short of achieving, but it’s the striving that has given us whatever claims to greatness we have had. That’s what America means to us and “We’re an American Band’.

The band will begin touring this summer, with a headlining date at Red Rocks Ampitheater in August. Live dates below.

Margaret Glaspy’s Debut Album “Emotions and Math” Available Now!

Get Margaret Glaspy’s Emotions And Math: Official Store | iTunes | Amazon

Margaret Glaspy’s debut album ‘Emotions And Math’ is out today! Kelefa Sanneh of The New Yorker writes “The music is unadorned, the better to showcase Glaspy’s electric guitar and her extraordinary voice, as well as her plainspoken lyrics, which are, by turns, gently sentimental and firmly not.” Listen here: http://bit.ly/1ZDWLvv

Pitchfork also posted a review of ‘Emotions and Math’, saying the album “treats bad decisions and destructive impulses with compassionate clarity and heartfelt empathy.”

Margaret will play a hometown album release show at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on Saturday, 6/18, with Alexander F And Jennah Bell to open. The show falls in the midst of an extensive tour with Lucius and on the heels of a performance this weekend at Bonnaroo. Later this summer, she’ll open select dates for Iron & Wine, play Lincoln Center with M. Ward, and make her debut at ACL Fest. Full list of dates below.

Vice says of Margaret Glaspy “Whatever expectation you might form for her, she will quickly upend it.” The New York Times says, “Her voice is raspily matter-of-fact and her guitar delivers a blunt, distorted riff.” NPR Music called her song “You And I” “one of the year’s best kiss-off songs.”

FINAL 150 King Gizzard Nonagon Infinity Picture Discs Released Today at 4PM!

We’re releasing the FINAL 150 copies of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s Nonagon Infinity 2LP picture disc today at 4PM EST on the ATO Store. Only 1500 copies exist, so this is your last chance to get one before the rest hit retailers on June 17:

ORDER AT THE ATO STORE || FIND YOUR LOCAL RECORD STORE

 

We’re also releasing the second vinyl pressing of Nonagon Infinity, a two-color variant we’re calling “Evil Death Blob” – these are on sale now at the ATO Store. And if you still haven’t picked up the green and black splatter vinyl, move fast – there’s less than 150 left in the ATO store!

 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard‘s new album “Nonagon Infinity” is out now. This high-octane, face-melting 9-song collection has been ingeniously crafted as the world’s first infinitely-looping LP – each track seamlessly flows into the next, with the final song linking straight back into the top of the opener.

Get Nonagon Infinity: Official Store | iTunes | Amazon | Your Local Record Store | Stream

Recorded at Daptone Studios in Brooklyn, work on the album began in 2014, around the release of the band’s acclaimed LP I’m In Your Mind Fuzz. Ever-prolific, it took King Gizzard two years and two additional albums to fine-tune the concept and music that would become Nonagon Infinity.

“King Gizzard’s latest, Nonagon Infinity, is not only the band’s most explosively ambitious work; it’s also a thoroughly realized journey, embedded in a frenzied barrage of riff-heavy head-bangers … a high-octane and attention-demanding album”. – NPR Music First Listen

Watch “Bubbles Burst” Video from The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s “Monolith of Phobos”, Out Now!

Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. After a successful summer tour pairing Primus with The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon have decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts thus far have spawned the upcoming, full-length release called Monolith of Phobos

 

MerchMockupRelix

Official StoreiTunes | Amazon | Spotify

Watch the video for “Bubbles Burst”:

After some impromptu, backstage jams and an epic live sit-in on Primus’s psychedelic opus, “Southbound Pachyderm,” Claypool approached Lennon about doing a recording project. “I was trying to wrangle up an Oysterhead reunion since Primus was taking a rest for 2016 but the planets just wouldn’t align for that,” said Claypool. “I don’t like sitting around, so when Sean said he didn’t have plans for this next year, we started kicking around the notion of making an old-school, psychedelic/prog record 

 

“Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart,” said Claypool. “He definitely reflects his genetics–not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother. It makes for a glorious freak stew.” Over the course of six weeks or so, the two wrote and recorded a total of ten songs with both of them sharing various vocal and instrumental responsibilities, going beyond their core instruments of bass and guitar.

In astronomical terms, the Monolith of Phobos is a large rock on Mars’s potato shaped moon Phobos. As the phrase implies, this album is an old-school approach to a psychedelic space rock record. The Claypool Lennon Delirium will begin their Summer tour on album release day and the touring band includes Les Claypool (bass, vocals), Sean Lennon (guitar, vocals), Mark “Money Mark” Ramos Nishita of the Beastie Boys (keyboards), and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band (drums).

Watch Margaret Glaspy’s “You And I” Video via NPR, Pre-Order Debut Album

Pre-Order Margaret Glaspy’s Emotions And Math: Official Store | iTunes | Amazon

Watch the “You and I” video at NPR

“New York singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy‘s “You And I” is one of the year’s best earworms, with a simple but irresistible guitar riff that can wind its way deep in the brain and camp out for days. Now comes a new video for the song, with equally striking visuals that are both plain and potent. “I don’t want to see you cry,” Glaspy sings with a Mona Lisa smile, as she ambles through a monochromatic landscape. Each moment, from a picnic to a studio photo shoot and a nail salon, is shaded in its own single vivid color.” – NPR’s Robin Hilton

“I wrote down the idea for this video on the back of a set list,” Glaspy tells NPR Music via email. “Six weeks later, I got off tour and stepped into an elaborate world created by [director] Christopher Good and his crew that was based on that scrap of paper. In making the video, I knew that we weren’t going to make anything too directly narrative. The lyrics and meaning of the songs don’t belong to me anymore. You make records so people can have their own experience with them. It felt like a good opportunity to lighten up a bit and use my imagination visually.”

——–

Glaspy has earned early praise from The New York Times, Stereogum and NME. Rolling Stone hailed her “hot barbs of electric guitar,” and VICE Noisey love her “complex, deceptively heavy riffs with vocals that really stand out and grab you at the throat.”

“In a lot of ways, it’s kind of how I operate,” says Glaspy of her debut album’s title, Emotions and Math. “I’ve always considered myself a free spirit, someone who goes with the flow, but actually I’m not exactly like that. This record really taught me that I’m super analytical and process-driven. I think they really do go together, emotions and math. Nobody is just one thing.”

Listen to Joseph’s New Song “White Flag”; Preorder New Album Out 8/26

You can now hear the first single from Joseph‘s upcoming album I’m Alone, No You’re Not, out August 26, at NPR Music’s Songs We Love. NPR says of the song: “The band has said “White Flag” is about facing what scares you. But its triumphant chorus tells you that Joseph is only moving confidently forward.”

Pre-order the new album and instantly download “White Flag”:

OFFICIAL STORE | ITUNES | AMAZON

Watch the band’s announcement video:

 

There is nothing like the sound of siblings singing together. Whether it’s the Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers or First Aid Kit, absorbing the same breathing rhythms and speech patterns adds an element to vocal harmonies that can be pure magic. With the August 26 release of ‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’, the mesmerizing, hypnotic sound of the trio known as Joseph – sisters Allison, Meegan, and Natalie Closner – joins this elite company.

 

‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ was produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis), and features eleven original songs exploding with a mystical exuberance and heart-on-sleeve emotion.  In advance of the album’s release, Joseph have already been named a 2016 Spotify Spotlight artist, toured with James Bay, and confirmed festival performances this summer at Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Pickathon and more.  They’ll also join Michael Kiwanuka for a European run, and reconnect with James Bay this fall for his next US tour, including dates at Radio City Music Hall, The Ryman Auditorium and more.

 

Choosing their name in deference to their grandfather Jo, and the tiny Oregon town of Joseph where he lived, Natalie Closner and her younger twin sisters Meegan and Allison, grew up in a musical household, but didn’t sing together until just a few years ago.  Joseph officially formed when Natalie, an aspiring performer looking for a creative jolt, asked her sisters to form a band together. They quickly discovered their gift for songwriting and vocal alchemy.

 

‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ is a masterclass in pristine 3-part harmony, traversing melodies and rhythms that are indelible and ambitious.  Lead single “White Flag” is a cathartic rallying cry, with the sisters’ voices starting as a hum, then verging on a scream by the chorus.  The anthemic album opener, “Canyon,” channels Fleetwood Mac at their soaring finest.  Elsewhere golden, shimmering pop songs are tucked next to the most delicate ballads: love lost and found, amplified by three unwavering voices.

 

 

TOUR DATES:

Lisa Hannigan announces new album “At Swim”, listen to “Prayer for the Dying” at NPR

Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan’s highly anticipated new album, At Swim, will be released August 19 via ATO Records.

PREORDER AT SWIM: Official StoreiTunes

The release follows her second full-length album, Passenger, which NPR Music praised as “lush and beautiful,” while Rolling Stone furthered, “Her voice is light and agile, her phrasing like exquisite plumage, and her folksy songs move with deceptive power, sailing on guitars, strings and Irish drama.” “Prayer for the Dying,” the first track to be revealed off At Swim, premiered today at NPR Music. As NPR notes, the track “showcases Hannigan’s considerable gift for slow-burning melancholy. Setting her lustrous voice against a backdrop of piano, slide guitar and swooning backing vocals, the song sways sweetly for four and a half languid, hypnotic minutes.” Listen to it now:

After touring in support of Passenger for nearly two years, Hannigan began writing songs for her new record. Although she struggled to write new material while living in London, away from home and from what she describes as her “usual anchors and points of reference,” Hannigan had a breakthrough when she got an email out of the blue from Aaron Dessner—guitarist in The National and producer of Dark Was the Night and records by Sharon Van Etten, This is the Kit and Frightened Rabbit among others. Working with Dessner and rediscovering the collaborative spirit she’d missed in Dublin enabled Hannigan to see her life in London in a different light. Hannigan and Dessner (guitar) started recording the new record with Logan Coale (bass) and Ross Turner (drums) in rural Hudson, NY at Future Past Studio. In the weeks that followed, Dessner produced the record at his home studio. “He didn’t want it to sound too pretty,” Hannigan says. “He wanted it to have a texture rather than have big arcing melodies.” At Swim is in part about homesickness and isolation as well as about love.

Hannigan will be appear at Edmonton Folk Festival and Eaux Claires Festival in August. Look for more North American tour dates to follow.

My Morning Jacket – “It Still Moves (Deluxe Reissue)” Out Now

My Morning Jacket has re-issued 2003’s It Still Moves, remixed and remastered as a special deluxe package with new artwork and exclusive photos. It includes frontman Jim James’ ten original demos plus three unheard tracks from the original sessions on 4 x LP 180 gram vinyl, 2 CD set, or digital download. With the help of the band’s longtime friend Kevin Ratterman behind the mixing desk, James revisited and tweaked all the old material. Remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering, this new version still has that shimmering grandeur that lent it such a singular identity, but there is an increased strength and clarity to it now.

“Everybody can relate to something they’ve done in their life where you didn’t know it at the time, but you were rushed through finishing it,” James said. When ATO approached him about the idea of reissuing It Still Moves as a part of the label’s fifteenth anniversary, he took the opportunity to dig back in and remix the album.

In addition to pillars of My Morning Jacket’s catalog such as “One Big Holiday” and “Golden”, the re-issue is also accompanied by James’ original acoustic demos of It Still Moves. This is still the way James writes, getting down the core snapshot of an idea before bringing it to the band and reworking it with their titanic sound. “I feel lucky to have had so many songs that feel like there are chances to go in other directions,” James said.

 

 

It would’ve been hard to tell back when My Morning Jacket released It Still Moves, but the then-young band’s third album would serve as a conclusion to one part of their story. It Still Moves both expanded their early style outward as far is it could go, while also grounding it. Everything would shift for My Morning Jacket after It Still Moves. As the conclusion to their initial trilogy of albums, it remains one of their most pivotal releases.
