    HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price]

    HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price]HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price] - Melvin Records
    Let me explain what it’s like to summarize Rest In Chaos. What you have here is, in the first place, the book of Genesis as deftly reconceived by Todd Snider who has been inhabited by a spirit resembling Philip K. Dick. The rest of the Hard Working Americans are under the direction (or perhaps in the thrall) of an older wiser Jimi Hendrix and a Frank Zappa no less exacting than he was when he departed. It is rock’n’roll music, past, present and future, and that’s no dream, it’s just a fact. There are moments here when the walls of Babel might be falling, there are moments when they are reinvented and every time you try to pin it down, it shows you something else.

    OSCAR - Cut And Paste

    OSCAR - Cut And PasteOSCAR - Cut And Paste - Wichita RecordsOSCAR - Cut And Paste
    After a string of rambunctious, critically acclaimed singles, Oscar is delighted to announce his hotly anticipated debut LP, Cut And Paste. You can hear the clear influence of a West London upbringing in the basement rhythm of Be Good or the dub bassline and echo of the anthemic, uplifting Good Things. You're hit by the boom-bap breakbeat of his beloved mid-90s hip hop on Breaking My Phone and Beautiful Words, before swooning to his more tender side on Only Friend, where Oscar is joined by Marika Hackman for a gorgeous duet over a sea of bubbling synths, or Fifteen, an addictive love song, ragged at the edges and wearing its heart defiantly on its sleeve.

    FRUIT BATS - Absolute Loser - Easy Sound Recording
    Eric D. Johnson is Fruit Bats. And Fruit Bats is back. Although Fruit Bats has been ostensibly been a solo project since its inception in 1997, Johnson ditched the name after 16 years and five successful studio albums. He's found success scoring films like ''Smashed'' and ''Our Idiot Brother'' and contributing songs to movies like ''Wild.'' He's produced albums for artists like The Cardigans, Nina Persson and bands like Breathe Owl Breathe. He's continued to grow his Huichica Music Festival and even recorded a solo album under his own name. But in 2014, Johnson was ready to drive the car off the cliff. His wife suffered a miscarriage. He lost his voice in a cancer scare. His sense of identity felt frail; his purpose seemed unclear. So Johnson turned back to his creative constant, Fruit Bats. Fruit Bats sixth album ''Absolute Loser'' represents a triumphant return to name and form. Fruit Bats rebirth parallels Johnson's resiliency, and ''Absolute Loser'' is his treaty on how to redefine oneself after tragedy.

    DIGITALISM - Mirage

    DIGITALISM - MirageDIGITALISM - Mirage - PIAS AmericaDIGITALISM - Mirage
    German duo Digitalism make a welcome return with the release of their third full-length record titled “Mirage.” With dashes of disco, French touch, prog rock, rave and hip-hop thrown into an eclectic sound palette that colors “Mirage,” this wonderfully refreshing soundscape drops via Magnetism Recordings/PIAS. From the full-power electro-indie of “Battlecry,” to the euphoric melancholy of “Utopia,” both of which serve as welcomed reminders of the duo’s unique sensibility for storming riffs and stunning melodies. Five years on from their sophomore record 'I Love You, Dude' – the German duo have wisely resisted any vogues or trends. Instead, they present a record that takes their much-loved sound and opens it up to new permutations and possibilities.
