Lenny Kravitz - Raise Vibration [Deluxe] Raise Vibration [Deluxe]

Set for release in September, Raise Vibration will be Lenny Kravitz’s 11th studio album released on CD and 2 LPs in multiple standard and deluxe formats. The record promises to be one of Kravitz’s most eclectic. “Low,” the song that got the whole process started, developed into a smooth funk showcase; what Kravitz calls “my Quincy Jones school” complete with horns and a string arrangement. The title track is lean power-trio rock, while the ballad “Here to Love” features Kravitz backed only by his piano and a string section. “Johnny Cash,” inspired by an encounter with the late legend, is what Kravitz jokingly calls “psychedelic funk meets country.” As usual, Kravitz plays most of the instruments himself, with longtime guitarist Craig Ross. Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk. Kravitz's talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist have resonated now through eleven studio albums into a timeless catalog. He has also won four consecutive GRAMMY Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the "Best Male Rock Vocal Performance" category.

Waxahatchee - Great Thunder EP Great Thunder EP

On September 7, Katie Crutchfield’s ever-shifting musical project Waxahatchee returns with the Great Thunder EP. Featuring a collection of songs written with now-dormant experimental recording group Great Thunder while Crutchfield was also writing the Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp, the original recordings have mostly faded into obscurity. Unearthing and reimagining them with producer Brad Cook at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin was a cathartic experience, she says. On the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Out in the Storm, Crutchfield found herself looking to take a sharp turn away from the more rock-oriented influences of her recent records towards her more folk and country roots. “I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started,” writes Crutchfield. “Overall, the EP is a warm, kind of vibey recording.” Some of the songs on Great Thunder, like “Chapel of Pines” and “Singer’s No Star,” stayed the same and will be recognizable to those intensely familiar with Crutchfield’s catalog to date, while closer “Takes So Much” was built back up on piano from the bones of the original version, surprising even the songwriter: “Until then, I didn’t realize how beautiful this song was.” As Crutchfield entered April Base to record, she became ill but opted to forge on, beautifully stretching her voice to its emotional limits.

Kathy Mattea - Pretty Bird Pretty Bird

Hailed by The Washington Post as "one of Nashville's finest song interpreters," Kathy Mattea has enjoyed the kind of success many artists only dream of: two Grammy wins, four CMA Awards, four #1 country singles, and five hold albums (plus a platinum collection of her greatest hits). The dream almost ended thought when Mattea entered her 50s and began to find her voice changing. What followed was a three year journey through life challenges and vocal glitches that she describes as her "dark night of the soul," a trying time of personal anguish and professional uncertainty that threatened to silence her permanently. Instead, Mattea dug in with a vocal coach, re-committed to her music, and emerged with the most poignant album of her career, "Pretty Bird." Working with her old friend, music roots wizard Tom O'Brien, producing, "Pretty Bird" is a chronicle of her journey, song by song, back to singing for the sheer joy of it. It's an emotional, moving collection, one that draws its strength not only from Mattea's touching performances, but also from her uncanny ability to weave seemingly disparate material into a cohesive whole. From a playful take on Oliver Wood's "Chocolate On My Tongue" to a tender rendition of Mary Gauthier's "Mercy Now," from a British traditional to a Bobbie Gentry classic, these are the songs that helped Mattea reclaim her voice, and she inhabits each as fully as if it were her own.

$uicideBoy$ - I Want To Die In New Orleans I Want To Die In New Orleans

Hailing from New Orleans’ Seventh Ward, a crime-ridden, neglected, violent section of the city, rap duo and cousins $uicideboy$, comprised of members $lick and Ruby Da Cherry, got their start in 2014 and their name references a pact they made: if they didn’t make it by age 30, they would end their lives. XXL magazine heralded $uicideboy$ as “one of the fastest growing acts in hip-hop right now” and their heavily anticipated forthcoming album I Want To Die in New Orleans is inspired by their tour experiences and all the extravagance that comes along with the fame. The duo strives to create clever, thought-provoking music that continues to push boundaries, while also remaining true to their mission, which $lick says is “We make music for people who don’t know who they are, and where they belong. That’s the whole philosophy behind $uicideboy$: nothing is ever permanent – especially life."
