Darden Smith

Everything

CD: $16.98 Buy

Darden Smith is a singer-songwriter based in Austin whose 30 year career redefines what it means to be a musician as the founder and creative director of Songwriting With: Soldiers, a nonprofit that pairs award-winning songwriters with veterans and service members in retreat settings to craft songs about combat and the return home. Rooted in the songwriting traditions of his home state of Texas, he is described by experts as a singer/songwriter blessed with an uncommon degree of intelligence, depth, and compassion. His 2017 album, Everything, features musicians Roscoe Beck (bass), JJ Johnson (drums), Charlie Sexton (guitars), Michael Ramos (keyboards) and David Mansfield (mandolin, pedal steel and strings), with vocal help from James House, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Bonnie Bishop, and Kelly Willis. Recorded in Austin, the collection features songs written by Smith and with collaborators House, Radney Foster, Matraca Berg, Bruce Robison, and Jay Clementi. Mary Gauthier says of the album, "Darden Smith has made a beautiful new record, filled with hope and love and heartfelt tenderness... This music is magic, and who doesn't need a little magic right now?"

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2017 release. Duende, The Band of Heathens' fifth studio album (and eighth overall), marks the Austin quintet's tenth anniversary as a group. It's an apt name for a record whose themes explore the collective search for connection and communion in a technology-fueled world increasingly splintered, distracted and lonely. As band co-founder Ed Jurdi, who first learned of the term, explains, "It's the essence of the artist," or as partner Gordy Quist says, "It's a word we don't have an equivalent for in English, artistically, that's where we tried to set the bar, to do what this band does best." Featuring 10 new tracks, Duende was recorded at The Texas Treefort in Austin and produced by Jim Vollentine and The Band of Heathens.

The Mastersons

Transient Lullaby

CD: $14.98 Buy

2017 release. Don't bother asking The Mastersons where they're from. Brooklyn, Austin, Los Angeles, Terlingua; they've called each home in just the last few years alone. If you really want to get to know this husband-and-wife duo, the better question to ask is where they're going. For the last seven years, The Mastersons have kept up a supremely inexorable touring schedule, performing as both the openers for Steve Earle and as members of his band, The Dukes, in addition to playing their own relentless slate of headline shows and festivals. Written in a slew of different cities around the world, the band's new album, Transient Lullaby, out May 19, 2017 on Red House REcords, is a late-night collection of subtle, evocative performances that showcase the itinerant couple at their absolute finest. Musically, the album is rich with intoxicating harmonies that float above Eleanor Whitmore's stirring string arrangements and Chris Masterson's adroit guitar work, but it's the deeply personal songwriting that always manages to steal the show.

White Denim

Stiff

CD: $11.99 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Three years on from their critically acclaimed "barbeque" record Corsicana Lemonade, White Denim are back with more than just a new album to commemorate. Their sixth record, Stiff is a return to the Austin quartet's frenetic rock band roots, and is both a jubilant thrill ride and joyous celebration of their past ten years. Heading into the studio with an external producer to oversee a whole album for the first time - and even writing a tune with Cass McCombs ("Thank You") - the band teamed up with the legendary Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Laura Marling, The Staves) to produce their first truly live record, one teeming with a cool '70s undertow, tumultuous riffs and a feverish energy that's resulted in arguably some of their biggest and brawniest songs to date. For the most part, Stiff is an album crammed with adrenaline-fueled sing-along that show off the band's staple technical abilities. But it's also one that sees some new shades that they've developed along the way, too. Citing new wave and the razor-sharp pop punk of Buzzcocks as influences this time round, there's an addictive Elvis Costello circa This Year's Model quality to "Real Deal Momma," a tune that highlights the band's love for hummable synthesizers and curious, affecting oddities. Then there's the cow bell calm and backing vocals laden brilliance of "I'm The One (Big Big Fun)," that along with "Take It Easy (Ever After Lasting Love)" (a song Petralli says "wants to be on a collection of doo wop songs written in 2016") shows a softer and more intricate side to the band while fully emphasizing Petralli's vocal excellence.

Old 97's

Graveyard Whistling

CD: $12.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

In 1996, the Old 97 s recorded Too Far to Care. It was their major-label debut after the band signed with Elektra Records. But rather than venture into some state-of-the-art studio in New York or LA, the band decamped to Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border. The sound that the group captured on Too Far to Care has remained a touchstone for them. We ve always held that one up as the closest to sounding exactly like what sets us apart from the rest of the world, says Rhett Miller. And so when it came time for the Old 97 s to record the follow-up to the highest-charting album of their career, 2014 s Most Messed Up, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. We knew instantly that it was the perfect move, says Miller. The result is the eleven songs of Graveyard Whistling, the eleventh studio album from the Old 97 s.

FABLES is a sparse, poignant set of songs crafted around Ramirez' starkly beautiful baritone, which the New York Times once described as full of "haggard loneliness." In a world full of singer-songwriters hawking their stories, Ramirez has managed to stand out from the noise, developing a fiercely loyal following of fans who are drawn to his intimately personal songwriting. The album's title, 'FABLES,' was inspired by the first single, "Harder to Lie," which captures the moment Ramirez realized, as he puts it, "I couldn't bullsh*t with her [my girlfriend] anymore. She knew me completely. It got me thinking about how much I bullsh*t in my life - exaggerating stories, faking a smile, or whatever. Just telling fables. When you don t know who you really are you can end up hurting people."

When it comes to down ‘n’ dirty roots ‘n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard. From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ‘60s to his wild ride through the ‘70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the ‘80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a song writer’s songwriter in the ‘90s. Hubbard was already a bonafied legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century. Beginning with 2001’s aptly-titled Eternal and Lowdown through to his latest and greatest release. 2015’s The Ruffian’s Misfortune, he has spent well over a decade now chasing hellhounds through muddy waters and deep into the underbelly of the blues, with a Lightnin’ Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stones swagger in his step.

Those friends; Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson (Wild Child), David Ramirez, Grammy-winner Adrian Quesada, and Jason Robert Blum came together over the course of a week in a rented house in Glorieta, NM. "We chose Glorieta because it was isolated enough to feel like we were at camp" said Vasquez, "the only requirements were vaulted ceilings and a jacuzzi. The days were long with the tape running constantly as the players bought songs in various stages of completion to their new family of collaborators. Midway through the sessions the group was joined by a guest appearance from Nathaniel Ratliff, who drove straight through the night to join the party. The result is their self-titled debut record; a beautiful mix of voices from six band leaders, that fit perfectly together.

Best-known as the co-founder for shape-shifting heartland indie rockers Delta Spirit and super-group Middle Brother with John J. McCauley III of Deer Tick and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, Matthew Logan Vasquez's fiery delivery and thought-provoking lyrics draw from a huge and versatile well of influences, including Gram Parsons, Kurt Cobain, Neil Young, and Iggy Pop. He's also a solo artist and returns here with his third full-length effort following Solicitor Returns (2016) and Does What He Wants (2017). "One year ago, my family moved to Norway ahead of me, while I stayed behind in Wimberley, TX to make an album," explains Vasquez. "It was one of the loneliest months of my life. No family, no cat, just a ghost named Ladonna, and a couple friends here and there to buck me up. There's a lot in this one about sadness, struggle, and brokenness, but also about love, simplicity, and toughness. I named the album 'Light'n Up' because I see a silver lining in my sadness. It feels good to know you're at the bottom."

Nada Surf

Peaceful Ghosts

CD: $15.98 UNAVAILABLE
In the summer of 2015, Matthew Caws - the singer/guitarist of Nada Surf - was sitting at his kitchen table in Brooklyn frantically writing what would become Nada Surf's seventh album, the critically acclaimed You Know Who You Are (2016), when an email arrived that would delight and terrify him. Once a year, FM4, in Austria, chooses an artist for a national orchestral concert that is broadcast across the country, and they reached out to Nada Surf asking if the band would like to be the next. Soon after receiving the FM4 request, the band secured a similar offer from Radio Eins in Berlin to perform live on air with the Babelsberg Film Orchestra, which derives it's name from and is affiliated with the legendary Babelsberg Studios where notable films such as Metropolis, Dr. Mabuse, and The Blue Angel were made. "If we said yes, we'd have to choose a composer to write the parts and then decide which songs he or she should write for. We'd have to decide these things soon. Well, that was out of the question," recalled Caws. "Deciding what kind of Thai curry take-away I should get that evening was about as distant a decision as I could imagine, while the small matters of which songs would go on the new Nada Surf record, who would mix them, what the album would be called, and what the final verse of the song I was working on right then would be, loomed ahead. I would try and answer these questions after that curry, but making decisions about a concert months later was more than I could handle." Instead of passing up the opportunities Nada Surf asked their good friend, multi-instrumentalist Martin Wenk, whose own band Calexico had done the FM4 Vienna Radio Symphony concert in 2013, to oversee the details with composer Max Knuth, while the band focused on putting the finishing touches on You Know Who You Are. For those of us unable to make it to Europe in June 2016 to listen to the fruits of this collaboration either in-person or over the airwaves, the band is making it available now with their album Peaceful Ghosts. On Peaceful Ghosts, the orchestrations cover a broad stylistic range, James Bond at one extreme, and joy and wonder of Walt Disney at the other, with a whole range of surprises in between. Classics, such as the delicate melancholy of "Blonde On Blonde" unfold to surprising new places with soaring countermelodies, while new favorites from You Know Who You Are, including "Rushing" and "Out Of The Dark," showcase the power and majesty of the original without losing the lyrical and musical subtlety that has become the hallmark of Nada Surf for the past twenty years.
