Product Description: boo­boo [ˈbo obo o/] noun (pl. boo­boos) informal a mistake."you could make a big boo­boo if you leap to any drastic conclusions" a minor injury, such as a deadly car crash. boo1 [bo o/] exclamation said suddenly to surprise someone."“Boo!” she cried, jumping up to frighten him" said to show disapproval or contempt, especially at an athletic contest or musical performance. noun 1. an utterance of “boo” to show disapproval or contempt. “the audience re­tweeted his comment with boos and hisses” verb 1. say “boo” to show disapproval or contempt."they booed and hissed when he stepped on stage" boo2 [bo o/] noun (pl. boos) informal 1. a person's boyfriend or girlfriend After 7 years of touring and recording, I found myself becoming self conscious about my position in life as a “famous” person, or at least my version of whatever that is. My dreams had become my reality, yet I was somehow unable to accept this new environment. I couldn’t help but fall into what might be described as an identity crisis. A feedback loop of fearful thoughts left me feeling confused. I felt as though I no longer knew what it was that I actually wanted and needed in and out of life, and at times I felt unable to even tell what was real. During this time of personal turmoil, I turned to music as a form of therapy, and it helped me cope with the pain that I was feeling. I’d listen to the same ambient song over and over again, trying to insulate myself from reality. I fell in love with space again. By the time I felt ready to begin working on a new record, I knew that this idea of space within music would be something that propelled my new work forward. The artists that were influencing what I was making included everyone from Travis Scott to Daft Punk, Frank Ocean to Oneohtrix Point Never, Kashif and Gigi Masin. I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof. I decided that I wanted to make a Pop record with these ideas in mind. That idea for a record is what eventually became Boo Boo.

HUG OF THUNDER (Broken Social Scene)

JUMP BACK TO TOP

Artist:
Broken Social Scene

Genre:
Alternative Rock

Total Length:
52:15

Label:
Arts & Crafts

Purchasing Links:
CD, MP3, Vinyl, iTunes


Product Description: Hug Of Thunder marks the fifth studio album from Canadian alt-rock supergroup Broken Social Scene, their first in seven years. Founded in '99 by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, the new album features 17 players and 15 original members including Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric, Amy Millan and Evan Cranley of Stars, Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit of Do Make Say Think, and Grammy-nominated Leslie Feist.

Hug Of Thunder is everything BSS fans love from the Canadian collective and then some, an album overflowing with glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia-tinted breakdowns, and more. It is a panoramic, expansive album that manages to be both epic and intimate; and like all things BSS, in troubled times, it offers a serotonin rush of positivity. Since their inception in the early Aughts, BSS have always pushed sonic boundaries while remaining reverent of a perfect chorus; almost twenty years down the line, Hug Of Thunder sharpens that balance and then some. The record's twelve songs refract the band's varying emotions, methods, and techniques in ways that not only reference their other albums, but surpass them. Hug Of Thunder is righteous but warm, angry but loving, melodic but uncompromising. And if you've ever fallen in love with Broken Social Scene - as many of us have - it is a perfect return that was truly worth the wait.

Hug Of Thunder was produced by Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Spoon, The Strokes) with Nyles Spencer, and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer).

A LITTLE MAGIC, A LITTLE KINDNESS: THE COMPLETE MONO ALBUMS COLLECTION (Laura Nyro)

Total Length:

2-Disc CD


Product Description: Can you surry? Can you picnic? Laura Nyro, to use her own fanciful word, surried onto the scene 50 years ago with the release of her debut album More Than a New Discovery. Its title was certainly apt. Throughout the course of her life, Nyro wrote and introduced some of the most beloved popular songs of all time with her singular fusion of pop, jazz, R&B, soul, Broadway, and folk sounds. Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to celebrate the golden anniversary of Laura Nyro’s debut with a landmark 2-CD collection. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection features, for the very first time on CD, both of Nyro’s original mono albums newly-remastered by Vic Anesini at Sony’s Battery Studios from the original master tapes. More Than a New Discovery, originally released on Verve Folkways in 1967, premiered the songs that Barbra Streisand, Blood Sweat and Tears, and The 5th Dimension would all take up the charts, including “Stoney End,” “And When I Die,” “Blowin’ Away,” and perhaps the most famous song Nyro ever wrote, “Wedding Bell Blues.” This special edition restores the original album sequence and mono mix from the very first version of the album. In 1968, Nyro moved to Columbia Records for her most acclaimed album, Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. Its songs were once again adopted by other artists such as Three Dog Night, Frankie Valli, and of course, The 5th Dimension. Featuring “Eli’s Comin’,” “Emmie,” “Sweet Blindness,” and the era-defining “Stoned Soul Picnic,” this ultra-rare album – thought by many Nyro connoisseurs to be superior to the familiar stereo version – also makes its maiden appearance on CD. A handful of bonus tracks round out this special package, including the Bones Howe-produced “pop” version of “Save the Country,” and the CD debuts of the Verve “censored” single version of “Stoney End” and the single mix of “Eli’s Comin’.” The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese provides new liner notes; the crystal-clear remastering is by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection pays tribute to one of pop’s most enduring iconoclasts. It’s a soul picnic you won’t want to miss.

Product Description: Something To Tell You, is the highly anticipated sophomore album from HAIM. When the time came to record the eleven tracks that make up Something To Tell You, HAIM decided to "go in and record as a band, keeping it a little more organic. That was kind of a mission statement for the album" offered Danielle Haim.

HAIM first announced the release of Something To Tell You with an in-studio video version of album track "Right Now," which was shot and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights). HAIM then released the single "Want You Back," which Rolling Stone described as having "a Hot 100 ready sheen." Pitchfork gave "Want You Back" its coveted Best New Track saying "Haim are pulling the rug out from under our feet in the run-up to releasing their second album." Entertainment Weekly declared "Want You Back" sees HAIM returning to their sonic roots as a funky, pop-inspired trio, complete with groovy strings, sprightly percussion, a soulful chorus, and a spritz of electronic sheen."

Renowned for their energetic and exciting live performances, HAIM will support Something To Tell You with many worldwide appearances throughout 2017, including the renowned Glastonbury festival in Southwest England this June. HAIM will also play Splendour in the Grass in Australia, Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK, and Lost Lake Festival in Arizona - with many more live shows to be added.

BRAHMS: VIOLIN CONCERTO & SONATA No. 1 (Vadim Gluzman)

Product Description: One of Johannes Brahms's sunniest works, the Violin Concerto in D major was conceived during the summer of 1878, which Brahms spent by the idyllic Wörthersee in Kärnte, Austria. By the end of the summer he was able to send the violin part of the first movement, and the beginning of the Finale to his friend Joseph Joachim. Brahms asked Joachim for advice regarding the writing for violin, and also told him that he was planning a work in four movements. By the time Joachim gave the first performance of the work, on New Year's Day 1879, the two had discussed the work in depth, Brahms had replaced the two projected inner movements with the glowing Adagio, and Joachim had composed a first version of his own cadenza, which still is the one most often performed. Vadim Gluzman, who on BIS has previously released Romantic war-horses such as the concertos by Tchaikovsky and Bruch to critical acclaim, now takes on Brahms with the support of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester under James Gaffigan. He combines it with the composer's Violin Sonata No. 1, written more or less in tandem with the concerto, performing it with his wife and recital partner Angela Yoffe.


TRACK LIST:

1. Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77: I. Allegro non troppo (cadenza by J. Joachim) (22:37)

2. Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77: II. Adagio (8:43)

6. Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Major, Op. 78 "Regen": III. Allegro molto moderato (9:00)
