    ALBERT HAMMOND JR. - Momentary Masters - Vagrant Records
    New solo album from The Strokes' guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. Momentary Masters is his third solo effort and the follow-up to 2008′s ¿Cómo Te Llama? LP and the 2013 EP AHJ. The 10-track album was produced by Gus Oberg and is Hammond’s first release via Vagrant Records. The album also features musicians Mon Khmer and Bleachers on guitar.  

    JOSS STONE - Water For Your Soul - Stone'd Records LtdJOSS STONE - Water for your Soul
    Water For Your Soul is a culmination in Joss Stones's travels in sound, demonstrating how the teen soul prodigy has blossomed into an artist of style and substance. This is an album that pulses with the liquid groove of reggae, dazzles with the mix and match sonic adventure of hip hop,shimmers with the exotic sounds of world music and delivers the emotional belt of R&. Most of the songs for Water For Your Soul had been written and demoed before Joss's Total World Tour began but widening horizons convinced her to completely rethink and recut the record. The sound expanded to include Indian tabla, Bengali lute, Bansuri flute, African and Asian percussion, plus gospel choirs, New Orleans horns and full orchestra. After various experiments, abandoned and revisited sessions, the final album was more or less completed in a 10 day frenzy, with strings being recorded in London, percussion in Hawaii and Joss pulling it together at her own Home Grown Studios in Devon.  Video Available




    LED ZEPPELIN - Deluxe Reissues
     - Atlantic
    Presence, In Through The Out Door, and Coda have been remastered for 2015 by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by companion audio comprised of previously unreleased music related to the original release.  Originally released in 1976, Presence was recorded during a whirlwind 18-day session at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany. The album which peaked at #1 in both the U.S. and UK and was certified triple platinum crackles with energy on Zeppelin classics like Nobody's Fault But Mine and Achilles Last Stand and delivers powerful jolts of the group at its visceral best. In Through The Out Door topped the U.S. and UK album charts and has since been certified six-times platinum. Sadly, it would be the last album that Led Zeppelin recorded prior to drummer John Bonham s passing the following year. Among the seven album tracks are Fool In The Rain and All My Love, two songs that remain rock radio staples to this day. The appropriately titled Coda was Led Zeppelin s final album of studio recordings. Released in 1982, it was comprised of eight unreleased tracks recorded between 1970 and 1978. It peaked at #6 on the album charts and has been certified platinum in the U.S. 

    TITUS ANDRONICUS - The Most Lamentable Tragedy - Family Hour Records
    The Most Lamentable Tragedy is the fourth studio album by Titus Andronicus and the band’s debut for Merge Records. A rock opera in five acts, it will see release on July 31, 2015, as a double CD and triple LP. The central narrative of TMLT (“a work of fiction,” claims singer/songwriter Patrick Stickles) concerns an unnamed protagonist whom we meet in deep despair. 

    MIGOS - YRN Tha Album - 300 Entertainment
    YRN Tha Album is the debut studio album from hip­hop trio Migos. One of the most highly ­anticipated rap debuts of the year, the record will feature production from long­time collaborator Zaytoven, DJ Mustard, TM88, Honorable C Note and more. The lead single, "One Time", is currently climbing up the radio charts while the official video has garnered over 4.6 million views on YouTube.

    BENJAMIN CLEMENTINE - At Least For Now - Capitol
    Benjamin Clementine, the acclaimed London-born, Paris-based singer, songwriter and pianist releases his stunning debut album, At Least For Now, in the US. Clementine has packed a lot into his 26 years: heartbreak, homelessness, and reinvention all came before reaching cult status in Paris and eventually receiving the Best New Act honors at 2015 s Les Victoires de la Musique, the French equivalent of the GRAMMY Awards. Raised in a strict religious household in the tough Edmonton section of London, Benjamin started to teach himself the keyboard at age 11, stumbling upon classical rather than contemporary pop; a sparse piano solo by Erik Satie in particular transformed the way he played. At 16 years old, in a rare moment of permitted TV watching, he caught New York avant-gardists Antony and the Johnsons performing the disarmingly naked Hope There's Someone on the BBC. I was confused, scared...it was another world, says Clementine. When it finished, I went back upstairs to my piano and started playing chords.

Lianne La Havas - Blood

Lianne La Havas - Blood

New CD: $13.99   $11.99
When touring for her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? came to a close, Lianne La Havas headed to Jamaica with her mother for a long-awaited holiday that evolved into an experience of self-discovery. She enjoyed emotional reunions with long-lost relatives; embraced Kingston's clubs; and even jammed in front of her family for the first time during a session with legendary dancehall/reggae producer Stephen McGregor. Exploring her roots inspired La Havas's writing. Lyrically, she says, the songs she wrote are almost all related to "the feeling of who you are and where you come from." And musically, La Havas took inspiration from Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. McGregor ultimately joined in the making of Blood along with a rich collection of others, including Adele/FKA twigs collaborator Paul Epworth and Matt Hales of Aqualung.
