>HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER - Hallelujah Anyhow (Black Vinyl Edition) LP (Merge)
“The stellar Hallelujah Anyhow often feels like a restless fever dream. Taylor’s elegant lyrics scan like stream-of-conscious poetry: Historical nods and ethereal characters (e.g., Jenny Of The Roses, Rhode Island Red) combine with real-life references, giving the songs a mythical quality. Although Hallelujah Anyhow hints at unrest and feeling lost—‘When the poets called for gasoline, I knew my days in the kingdom were numbered,’ Taylor sings at one point—the record’s allusions to finding silver linings are stronger. ‘If it’s up to me, a little love would go a long way,’ Taylor sings on ‘Harder Rain,’ while on ‘Jaw,’ he proclaims, ‘No more dancing like the world’s whipped forever.’ In a further nod to Hallelujah Anyhow’s urgent genesis, Taylor’s mix of alt-country and indie-folk is loose and extroverted. The soul-rock shimmy ‘Domino (Time Will Tell)’ possesses Rolling Stones-esque swagger, courtesy of freewheeling guitars and barnstorming saxophone, while the insistent folk-rock highlight ‘I Am The Song’ boasts repetitive strumming that matches a forceful vocal delivery. Even the songs that hew toward Heart Like A Levee’s stripped-down vibe—the piano-dappled ‘Caledonia, My Love’ and the low-lit folk gem ‘When The Wall Comes Down’—are more elaborate. – A.V. Club

>The Clientele – Music For The Age Of Miracles CD/LP/DELUXE LP (Merge)
The Clientele return with Music for the Age of Miracles, their first release of new music since 2010's Minotaur EP. It seems fitting that a chance meeting with a ghost from the past/future is what led to the first album of new Clientele songs in seven years. Singer and principal songwriter Alasdair MacLean and Anthony Harmer knew one another and played music together in the mid-90s but had lost touch. “I had often wondered what had happened to Anthony since,” says MacLean. “It turned out – he told me – he'd studied the Santoor, an Iranian version of the dulcimer, and over decades become a virtuoso, at least by my standards. He suggested we have a jam together. Ant and I now lived three streets away from each other, it turned out. He started to arrange my songs. He let me write and sing them, and he came up with ideas for how they should sound. This carried on until we had an album. I called up James and Mark and asked them if they wanted to make another Clientele record. They did, and this is it.”

>GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR - Luciferian Towers (180 GRAM Black Vinyl) LP
"..this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy - we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat."

>The Killers – Wonderful Wonderful CD/LP (Island)
Recorded with producer Jacknife Lee and longtime collaborator Stuart Price during sessions in Las Vegas and Los Angeles,
Wonderful Wonderful is bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems that make The Killers one of the world's biggest rock bands.

>METZ – Strange Peace CD/LP+MP3/Cassette (Sub Pop)
“The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge — to what's normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on the edge of perpetual implosion,” NPR wrote in their glowing review of METZ’s 2015 second album,
II. The band’s follow-up and third album, Strange Peace is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. The album was recorded in Chicago live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini and was finished up with longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh. Strange Peace isn’t merely a collection of eleven uninhibited and urgent songs. It’s also a kind of sonic venting, a truculent social commentary that bludgeons and provokes, excites and unsettles. With all the pleasurable tension and anxiety of a fever dream, it is equal parts challenging and accessible. It is this implausible balancing act, moving from one end of the musical spectrum to the other, that only a band of METZ’s power and capacity can maintain: discordant and melodic, powerful and controlled, meticulous and instinctive, subtle and complex, precise and reckless, wholehearted and merciless, brutal and optimistic, terrifying and fun.

>Luna
– A Sentimental Education CD/LP (Double Feature)

>Brandon Whyde – Silver Apples of the Moon CD (QoS)
On his new album, 'Silver Apples of the Moon,' Brandon Whyde gives listeners a glimpse into his past -- a past that includes heartbreak, loss and self-discovery. His voice has been described as soulful, whiskey-soaked and even “a freight train on fire” – qualities that shine through on his latest release.
'Silver Apples of the Moon' was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Jimmy Nutt in Muscle Shoals, Ala. – an area known as “The Shoals” – the album includes some of the veteran musicians who helped The Shoals earn acclaim as a hotbed of musical talent. Spooner Oldham, who played keyboards on Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” and as part of several of Neil Young’s projects and Bob Wray, who’s played bass on more than 30 #1 country hits, are just a few of the artists appearing on 'Silver Apples of the Moon'.
>>Catch Brandon LIVE at the HI-FI, on 30 September 2017!

The compilation includes one previously unreleased track, “Moonbeam Levels” (originally recorded in 1982 during the 1999 sessions and later considered for the never released Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album). Of the 40 tracks on the compilation, “Take Me With U,” “Paisley Park,” “Batdance,” “Mountains,” “Girls & Boys,” “Glam Slam” and the previously-unreleased “Moonbeam Levels” had not appeared on a previous studio compilation album in any form.

Over the last ten to fifteen years, CVG has been producing living maps in songs, drawings, modified instruments, animations and performances--shifting forms pointing to another world, infinitely more liveable, maybe hidden just under the surface of our own.
