Sturgill Simpson - The Ballad of Dood and Juanita- High Top Mountain
Sturgill Simpsonreleases his new concept album, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita, on CD, vinyl release will be December 3rd. This is the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's third album in twelve months and his most ambitious project to date.. Written and recorded in less than a week, and featuring the same ace musicians who played on last year's Cuttin' Grass albums, the record tells a classic American story of a Civil War-era couple torn apart by violence and reunited by lovewhat Simpson calls "a simple tale of either redemption or revenge."I just wanted to write a storynot a collection of songs that tell a story, but an actual story, front to back, says Simpson. He describes the concept album as a rollercoaster ride through all the styles of traditional country and bluegrass and mountain music that I love, including gospel and a cappella.In a career marked by risk-taking and rule-breaking, Simpson has previously challenged genre conventions with 2016s soul-inflected A Sailors Guide to Earth, which won the Grammy award for Country Album of the Year and was nominated for Album of the Year, and 2019s Sound & Fury, which was nominated for Rock Album of the Year.The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is available on an indie record store-exclusive CD that includes a printed illustration from the album artwork. A standard CD is also available. On 12/3/21, the vinyl will be available on indie-exclusive Translucent Natural vinyl, and will include another 11x11 print of the illustration on the front cover.

James McMurtry - The Horses and the Hounds

James McMurtry - The Horses and the Hounds-New West Records
In James McMurtrys new effort, The Horses and the Hounds, the acclaimed songwriter backs personal narratives with effortless elegance (Canola Fields) and endless energy (If It Dont Bleed). This first collection in seven years spotlights a seasoned tunesmith in peak form as he turns toward reflection (Vaquero) and revelation (closer Blackberry Winter). Familiar foundations guide the journey. Theres a definite Los Angeles vibe to this record, McMurtry says. The ghost of Warren Zevon seems to be stomping around among the guitar tracks. Dont know how he got in there. He never signed on for work for hire.The Horses and the Hounds is a reunion of sorts. McMurtry recorded the new album with legendary producer Ross Hogarth (Ozzy Osbourne, John Fogerty, Van Halen, Keb Mo) at Jackson Brownes Groovemasters in Santa Monica, California. Hogarth recorded McMurtrys first two albums, Too Long in the Wasteland and Candyland and later mixed McMurtrys first self-produced album, Saint Mary of the Woods. Another veteran of those three releases, guitarist David Grissom (Joe Ely, John Mellencamp, Dixie Chicks), returns with some of his finest work.

Madi Diaz - History Of A Feeling

Madi Diaz - History Of A Feeling- Epitaph
Rage, confusion, despair, self-deception, and introspectionMadi Diaz cycles through the full spectrum of emotions on History Of A Feeling, her debut on ANTI-. Its an album that undeniably marks Diazs status as a first-rate songwriter, a craft shes spent years refining, and one wherein Diaz establishes herself as an artist capable of distilling profound feelings with ease. Diaz pulls from a range of folk, country, and pop leaningsshe is as much influ- enced by Patty Griffin and Lori McKenna as she is the sonics of PJ Harvey and di- rectness of Kathleen Hanna. On History Of A Feeling, the Nashville based songwriter comes to terms with the dissolution of a meaningful relationship. By the end of it, she wills herself into a self-reflective state where she doesnt hate herself for being so heartbroken. The songs on History Of A Feeling, are the most direct and introspective songs Diaz has ever written. In the few times shes gotten to perform them live in front of an audience, Diaz describes the experience as one where she feels acutely present even though shes singing about emotions that started to take root years ago. Its relatable to anyone who has experienced heartbreak and great change in some manner, and this profound sense of intimacy and camaraderie she seamlessly weaves into the songs was important to her. I wanted it to sound conversational, like I had just walked over to your house and were sitting and at the end of your driveway talkingjust like were hashing it out in the same way that youd call a best friend at one in the morning because you needed to talk about what just happened.

Boris - NO

Boris - NO-Third Man Vinyl
Formed in 1992, Boris boldly explores their own vision of heavy music, where words like "explosive" and "thunderous" barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billow smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way. Furiously recorded in the early days of the covid-19 pandemic and surprise-released in July 2020, NO was met with immediate and widespread praise. Meant to serve as a mirror that redirects the negativity of the global lockdown to something more positive, the content on NO can be characterized as extreme healing music. Musically, it draws from influential noise-heavy hardcore group Gudon, even including a cover of their song Fundamental Error. NO is a classic hardcore thrash record and is one of the bands strongest efforts from start to finish. This will also serve as the release of NO on streaming services worldwide. "Their most compelling album in more than a decade." - Pitchfork

Boris - Flood

Boris - Flood-Third Man Vinyl
Formed in 1992, Boris boldly explores their own vision of heavy music, where words like "explosive" and "thunderous" barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billow smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way. This is the first-ever and particularly-anticipated official vinyl release of Boris's essential 2000 album, Flood. The album was originally released in Japan, only on CD. Delivered in four equally important movements, Flood is simultaneously delicate, dense, undulating, devastating, emancipating, hypnotic and triumphant. Each season of the album has its own sense of place, best revealed listen-by-listen. With the album, Boris broaden their vision of musical possibility, with a notable and imaginative influence from visionary American minimalist Steve Reich, weaving in prog, drone and slowcore into a multifaceted symphony. There simply has never been another piece of music like Flood.
