Porches is my love affair with music' Music keeps me alive and I hope that by continuing to make and release it, I can make some people laugh, cry, fall in love, lose their sh*t, smile, run around, and most importantly, help them to feel alive for a brief moment. ' Aaron Maine Porches, the recording project of Aaron Maine, has returned with new album Ricky Music, a follow up to 2018's The House. Written and recorded between Maine's New York apartment and Jacob Portrait's Greenpoint studio, Ricky Music sees Maine experimenting with new productions techniques, imparting a more amorphous sound, while embracing a collaborative spirit, teaming up with a wide range of creators and friends ' Mitski (vocals on 'Madonna'), Zsela (backing vocals on 'Fuck_3'), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) (backing vocals on 'rangerover' & 'Fuck_3'), Peter Maine (backing vocals on 'Wrote Some Songs'), among others. Ricky Music was written by Aaron Maine, except 'Patience,' which was written by Maine and Devault. The album was produced by Maine, co-produced by Jake Portrait, and engineered by both Maine and Portrait. Portrait also mixed the album, except 'rangerover' and 'Do U Wanna' which were mixed by James Krausse. The album was mastered by Heba Kadry.
The project was formed in early 2016, leading to their debut album later that year `Wisdom of Elders'; a document of sessions combining Hutchings with a group of South African jazz musicians he'd long admired.

2020 release, the third album from the Los Angeles-based instrumental supergroup. Recorded by legendary engineer Jim Scott (Wilco, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty) at his studio in Valencia, CA, this new collection began with... a drum machine. The Sequential Circuits Drumtraks from 1983, to be specific. The Circles band members-guitarist Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams), bassist Dan Horne (Cass McCombs, Jonathan Wilson), keyboardist Adam MacDougall (Black Crowes) and drummer Mark Levy-were searching for a sound, something more upbeat than previous releases. Cue the Drumtraks. The seven-track collection marks a stylistic shift from their previous LPs. It's an evolution that sees the band embracing a sleeker, shinier, even dancier version of themselves - a cosmic disco of the body and the soul, still anchored in the groove, but ascending to the stars.
Deap Lips is Wayne & Steven from THE FLAMING LIPS with Julie & Lindsey from DEAP VALLY. This special collaboration came together after a friendship formed between the bands. It will hit stores on CD and LP via Cooking Vinyl on 3/13.
2020 release. A deeply personal album for bandleader Rob Grote - all of the songs were written in his bedroom as a means of coping with struggles he was facing at the time with no intention of them putting them on a record. He wound up with 32 songs during that writing session, of which he and the band chose the 11 featured on the new record. The new album was produced by the band and frequent collaborator Keith Abrams, and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Spoon, MGMT, Tame Impala).
“Recording in a foreign environment like Berlin, I was inspired to experiment with more cinematic, psychedelic sounds,” says Sam Doores, “but my love for old-school New Orleans R&B, Memphis Soul & Rock n’ Roll, Detroit Motwon & Gospel, Doo-Wop, Early Blues & Folk music will probably always bleed into whatever I do. Recording this album was an opportunity to explore the space between these worlds.”
With his captivating self-titled debut, Sam Doores has done precisely that. Written on-and-off over the course of several years, the collection is classic and contemporary all at once, blending traditional southern roots with adventurous sonic landscapes as it reckons with heartache and loss, love and gratitude, fresh starts and, ultimately, a whole lotta change. The performances are infectious in their ease, simple on the surface but built on foundations of deep emotional and harmonic complexity that belie their amiable exteriors.
2020 release. The band is known for their fast, punk-influenced two-piece bass and drum songs, with both their music and image being characterized by "DIY principles, thrift store-cum-glam fashion style and a vast list of influences." The brothers classify their sound as "vada vada," a philosophy which Wyatt Shears describes as "an idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals".

Sam Gendel’s Nonesuch Records debut, Satin Doll will be released March 13, 2020. Recorded in Gendel’s native California, Satin Doll is a futuristic homage to historical jazz.

HUMAN IMPACT is Chris Spencer (Unsane, UXO) Jim Coleman (Cop Shoot Cop) Chris Pravdica (Swans, Xiu Xiu) Phil Puleo (Cop Shoot Cop, Swans) The band's first recordings are a dark mirror held up to the bands collective pre-history. Its sound is cinematic post-industrial filth rock, a dozen run down subway stops away from recognizable civilization, as futuristic as it is grounded in its sordid heritage. The result is a potent, hard-boiled distillation of this sonic ethos
Joywave has announced new album, Possession. Produced by frontman Daniel Armbruster, mixed by Dan Grech-Marguerat. The title is a reference to the loss of control. The 12 tracks speak to the noise surrounding us. "Our heads are spinning," notes Armbruster. "Every screen we walk by is shouting at us, demanding our undivided attention. Control over our own lives is constantly under siege." These themes are explored at societal and personal levels, encouraging listeners to see the big picture.
Upon recording their seventh full length album Transference, Spoon did away with producers and decided to completely self-produce their record for the first time. The result was a more expansive and creatively spontaneous record that harkens back to the humble beginnings of the band's history while continuing to push their sound into more experimental spheres. Featuring singles 'Who Makes Your Money', 'Written in Reverse' and fan favorite 'Got Nuffin', Transference is a fully unfiltered look at one of the most creative acts in modern music.
Limited double colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. CocoRosie's seventh album - the aptly titled Put The Shine On - is a study in extremes, balancing some of the most pristine and adroit pop songs the band has ever crafted, while simultaneously exploring the most extreme states of human feeling and being-the result being an album that is both pristine and, at times, harrowing. Put The Shine On is a record that luxuriates in extremes, reflecting the pain and confusion of mental and the anguish of unpacking trauma, while also gleefully celebrating the possibility of newness, of wildness, and the ever-present potential for transformation. Nearly two decades deep into a career marked by experimentation and bucking convention, the duo have made what is arguably their most well-considered, emotionally complicated, and sonically adventurous record of their career.
