Chris Smither - Call Me Lucky

CALL ME LUCKY is the new record from Chris Smither and is his first set of brand new originals in six years. The new record features Smither - trademark songs that offer commentary on the human condition with a wink of an eye and pulls from deep in the soul.

Birds of Chicago - Love In Wartime [LP]

Recorded against a backdrop of political division and dread, Love in Wartime, the 2018 release from Americana darlings Birds of Chicago, is a rock'n'soul suite under the influence of the epic music generated by artists of the '60s and '70s. Produced by Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars, love is the through-line of the album. "Any act of love is an act of bravery," says Allison Russell. "These songs are fragments of covenants of trust and understanding. We want to give people some good news. And we want them to be able to dance when they hear it."

Heather Maloney - Soil In The Sky

Soil In The Sky, the highly anticipated new album from Heather Maloney, out June 14, 2019, on Signature Sounds.

The Suitcase Junket - Mean Dog Trampoline [LP]

Vinyl LP pressing. The highly-anticipated follow up to The Suitcase Junket's label debut, Mean Dog, Trampoline will be released on Signature Sounds. Produced by Steve Berlin (Jackie Greene, Rickie Lee Jones, Leo Kottke) of Los Lobos, Mean Dog, Trampoline marks a deliberate departure from the self-recorded, homespun approach of The Suitcase Junket's previous efforts. In creating the album, Matt Lorenz pulled from a fantastically patchwork sonic palette, shaping his songs with elements of jangly folk, fuzzed-out blues, and oddly textured psych-rock. Engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz) and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Houndmouth), Mean Dog, Trampoline preserves The Suitcase Junket's unkempt vitality, but ultimately emerges as his most powerfully direct album so far.

Parsonsfield - Happy Hour On The Floor

On April 3, 2020 acclaimed folk-rock quartet Parsonsfield will release their highly anticipated fifth release, Happy Hour On The Floor on Signature Sounds. Produced by multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Lazar Davis (Joan As A Police Woman, Okkervil River), Happy Hour On The Floor was recorded in a small barn over three weeks. It is both subdued and danceable, exploring the in-between moments in life. Chris Freeman reflects, 'We took some time off the road to analyze where we've been over the last five years of touring. We made ourselves fresh again, but with a whole new depth of experience in our pockets. We tracked almost the whole album on one microphone, one instrument at a time. We didn't see ourselves as a folk band, an indie band or by any other label. In a bigger sense, this album is a story diving deep into ourselves and leaning on each other.'

Bridget Kearney - Won't Let You Down

In the 12 years she has toured the world as a member of the soul-pop sensation Lake Street Dive, Bridget Kearney has fine-tuned many things - voracious collaborating, acclaimed bass playing, and harmonizing, to name a few. But the skill she has honed most obsessively is songwriting. While still a student at The New England Conservatory of Music, Kearney won the grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, a harbinger of things to come. Now, Kearney steps into the spotlight with her first solo effort, a wry, big-hearted pop album entitled Won't Let You Down. The record, like its title, promises not to disappoint. Shades of The Beatles, Wilco, Fleetwood Mac, and even Nick Cave can be detected, as the album swerves from '60s pop to modern indie-rock.

Dustbowl Revival - The Dustbowl Revival [LP]

Vinyl LP pressing. Over the past few years, The Dustbowl Revival has been making a name for itself with a vibrant mix of vintage Americana sounds. Critics have proclaimed that this eclectic eight-piece "would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans' French Quarter" (Los Angeles Times) and their "upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear" (L.A. Weekly). Rob Sheffield, in Rolling Stone, hailed them as a great band "whose Americana swing was so fun I went back to see them again the next day." Their new eponymous album, however, finds the Los Angeles-based ensemble evolving and refining it's music. Their always-joyous sound now reveals a more soulful, funky side that exudes deeper emotions and taps a more modern vibe. This new release reveals the band moving in an exciting new direction. Instead of Dixieland jazz and Depression-era folk songs serving as musical mile markers, it mines an energizing vein of soul, funk and roots-infused rock that evokes the work of Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin and classic Stax recordings, and fits the band alongside such contemporaries as Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and St. Paul & the Broken Bones.

And The Kids - Turn To Each Other

And The Kids plays what they call accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis music. You’ll recognize it as pure, passionate and fresh alternative rock. The three-woman powerhouse has been packing the sidewalks and clubs from Northampton, MA to Boston to New York City with their fierce infectious harmonies, tight and unique grooves and songwriting that has the ability to reach down and tug at the truths of their generation and beyond. The ladies were barely out of high school when they met at the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA) in Goshen, MA, a women’s recording and sound engineering program. Together the trio is on a mission to inspire the hearts of all living beings of light and laughter one stage at a time.

And The Kids - When This Life Is Over [LP]

When This Life Is Over, is And The Kids highly anticipated third album for Signature Sounds. Praised by NPR for 'striking vocals [that] rival the vibrato and boldness of Siouxsie Sioux...and music that's both fearless and entertaining,' And The Kids return with a bold continuation of their chunky indie rock meets blissful new wave sound, while finding inspiration in exploring the 'total freedom of mortality's fate.' Hannah Mohan writes, 'We took inspiration from our lyrics 'When this life is over/no more rules/ no more orders' and let that set the tone of the whole album. Mohan continues, 'We wanted to break the rules of what an album should be like. We included bedroom demos and didn't worry about how we might play these songs live which can be very restrictive. We let everything go so that we could be our most creative selves. Although the title and theme might appear dark, it's actually about the remarkable beautiful freedom of the afterlife.

Louis Armstrong - Paramount Recordings 1923-1925 [LP]

The 20th century produced no shortage of legendary instrumentalists and vocalists but Louis Armstrong is the only figure who completely changed the way people played music on their instruments and he completely changed the way people sang. Perfecting the concept of the improvised solo, popularizing the use of scat singing, defining the concept of swing - those are just some of the ways "Satchmo" changed jazz, and American popular music - during his lifetime. The Paramount Recordings is a historic 14-track collection of studio sessions the consummate entertainer tracked between 1923 and 1925, recorded at the time for the Paramount label and featuring King Oliver's Jazz Band, Ma Rainey, Fletcher Henderson & His Orchestra, Trixie Smith, Wesley Wilson and Coot Grant. Audio remastered for vinyl and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany. Includes insert with liner notes.

Louis Armstrong & His All-Stars - Jazz Is Back In Grand Rapids [2LP]

Double vinyl LP pressing. This 1956 concert by Louis Armstrong & His All-Stars is a historical gem, which is finally getting it's vinyl debut with this double LP release. Recorded on March 26, 1956, at the Civic Auditorium in Grand Rapids, MI, it affords jazz fans a chance to hear what the barnstorming Armstrong's shows were like in heartland America. Armstrong's affable presence is pervasive, but not always center stage, as each member of the All-Stars gets his turn in the course of the revue. The release was remastered for vinyl from analog tape and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago - The Spiritual [LP]

The Spiritual, a free jazz album recorded by The Art Ensemble of Chicago in 1974, finds the group of stellar musicians at their creative peak. With various types of percussion, though the absence of a traditional drummer, the ensemble is able to create vivid, freeing compositions without the confines of conventional structure. The quartet, consisting of Joseph Jarman, Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, and Malachi Favors, explore the depths of Avant-Garde Jazz through a means that has yet to be touched on in a comparable capacity. Previously released on red color vinyl exclusively for Record Store Day, The Spiritual will now be widely available on 180gram black vinyl.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago - Tutankaman [LP]

Vinyl LP pressing. 2 long tracks recorded by the Art Ensemble in Paris during June of 1969. This was a tremendously productive time for the group, and it shows in the tracks "The Ninth Room" and "Tthinitthedalen". They run through a gamut of instruments, a wild range of sounds, yet never manage to lose their focus. Great stuff, with a lot of fire, and none of the weak moments that bogged them down later.

Albert Ayler and Don Cherry - Vibrations [LP]

Vinyl LP pressing. Recorded in Copenhagen in September of 1964, Vibrations is the second album released by American free jazz saxophonist Albert Ayler's quartet featuring Don Cherry, Gary Peacock and Sonny Murray.

Blue Glass - Pale Mirror

Vinyl LP pressing. Cut from the Thatcher-era, post-punk cloth and steeped in the romantic chill of the Pacific Northwest, Pale Mirror is a catchy, melancholic ode to isolation and longing that only certain latitudes tend to produce. Owing to influences like The Cure, The Cocteau Twins, The Chills, early OMD and The Wake - Blue Glass takes a step Into the ethereal on Pale Mirror. Seasick guitar lines and synth-laden melodies swim around the lean and pulsating edge-of-clean bass and drums to deliver a driving, energetic and introspective album.

Sandra Boynton - Hog Wild! [LP]

Big Bill Broonzy - The Midnight Special: Live In Nottingham 1957 [LP]

Born in Mississippi, "Big Bill Broonzy" - the name refers to his 6' 6" physical stature - remains largely unsung as far as a household name, despite recording several hundred songs, many of which he wrote. From the late 1920s through the late 1950s, this immensely prolific blues performer won over fellow musicians and "race music" fans alike. Nearly every label - notably Okeh, Paramount, and Vocalion, in the early days and later Folkways, Mercury, Victor, and Columbia, among them - released Broonzy records during and after his lifetime. As mentor to Muddy Waters and a major influence on artists like Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Rod Stewart, Broonzy's impact on music cannot be understated.

This solo performance captures Big Bill's affable personality and ability to hold the attention of an appreciative audience with his storytelling, acoustic guitar licks, and a strong singing voice that leaves an indelible impression that this man had experiences in the fields, the factories, and the railroads. The 1957 Nottingham set list largely consists of folk standards including "The Midnight Special," and "This Train," on which you can hear a little Elvis Presley swing, as Broonzy's introduction slyly alludes to some "rockin' and rollin'" cultural appropriation; we know what came first. Exhibiting the talent of any great song stylist, Broonzy makes all his own "The Glory of Love," an often-covered chestnut since the 1930s. On "What Kind Of Man Jesus Is," Broonzy harks back to his religious roots. He's self-deprecating on "In the Evening," quipping that it killed it's composer, another friend. "I hope it doesn't kill me." Three months after this concert, Big Bill learned he had lung cancer, to which he succumbed at 65 years old in August 1958. The record was mastered from original analog tape by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering, and pressed at Furnace Record Pressing.

Ornette Coleman - An Evening With Ornette Coleman, Part 1 [RSD BF 2016]

Dot Hacker - How's Your Process?: Play [LP]

2014 vinyl LP pressing. Dot Hacker's genesis comes from when Klinghoffer and bandmate Clint Walsh were touring as part of Gnarls Barkley back in 2006. Two more seasoned musicians, Eric Gardner and Jonathan Hischke soon rounded up the lineup and the band was formed in 2007. Klinghoffer's schedule became substantially busier upon joining the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a full-time member in 2009, though Dot Hacker eventually found time to release it's debut "Inhibition" in 2012. "How's Your Process? (Play)" marks the second of the bands two-part sophomore effort. It was mastered by Grammy Award winner, Bernie Grundman.

Most notably, guitarist and lead singer Josh Klinghoffer plays guitar in the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their third studio effort, N°3, follows the band’s 2014 two-part album, How’s Your Process?, and finds the band at their most musically creative and adventurous. For anyone familiar with their past work, that says quite a lot.
