MUSiC iN YOUR EARS #17/3 - TEN EXCiTiNG TRACKS


TEN EXCITING TRACKS
Cherry Glazerr, Arcade Fire, Mavis Staples, Joan of Arc, Uniform, Mick Harvey, Serge Gainsbourg, Foxygen, Kelly Lee Owens, Jenny Hval, Cloud Nothings, Sleater-Kinney, Diet Cig






Cherry Glazerr - Trash People 3:08
After releasing their second album, Haxel Princess, in 2014 Cherry Glazerr underwent a revamp. Vocalist/guitarist Clementine Creevy restocked the band with new members, turned to a pair of veteran producers in Joe Chiccarelli and Carlos de la Garza, and gave their previous grunge-garage sound a slicker, more powerful upgrade. 2017's Apocalipstick has a powerful wallop earlier albums lacked, with the bass and drums punching through the mix, Creevy's guitar slashing and crashing, and her vocals showing some growth. Songs sound more fleshed out, both sonically and lyrically, and the arrangements are fuller too. It's a step up from the exciting and weird amateurism of previous releases that proves the band isn't a joke...

Arcade Fire - I Give You Power (Feat. Mavis Staples) 3:43
Arcade Fire just released a surprise new song called “I Give You Power,” which features the legendary singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples. This is the first recording we’ve heard from the band since 2013’s Reflektor. Arcade Fire tweeted a message to fans, and noted that proceeds from the song will benefit the ACLU.


Joan of Arc - Grange Hex Stream 3:47
He's Got the Whole This Land Is Your Land in His Hands is the first "proper" full-length from long-running Chicago experimenters Joan of Arc since their 2012 self-titled LP... The resulting He's Got... features the lineup of Kinsella, Jeremy Boyle, Bobby Burg, Theo Katsaounis, and new member and co-lyricist Melina Ausikaitis, who sings lead or co-lead on a few of the tracks. It was recorded live at locations throughout Chicagoland, including an art gallery, a downtown hotel's basketball court, a West Side industrial space, and a friend's Airbnb. The uneven sound environments suit the mercurial set of songs, which seem at least partly motivated by confrontation...

Uniform - The Killing of America 4:04
Following their 2015 debut full-length, Perfect World, New York-based industrial/noise rock duo Uniform signed to Sacred Bones for the release of 2016's Ghosthouse EP, which set the stage for their second album, Wake in Fright. Released in January of 2017 as Donald Trump was being sworn into office as President of the United States of America, the album reflects the paranoia, confusion, and sheer horror rampant throughout the nation...


Mick Harvey - Ich Liebe Dich...Ich Dich Auch Nicht [Je T’Aime…Moi Non Plus] (Serge Gainsbourg) 5:14
In 1994, arranger, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey issued Intoxicated Men, his initial tribute to the music of Serge Gainsbourg. He was the first to render authoritative musical translations of the songwriter's notoriously difficult, pun-laden, alliterative lyrics in rhyming English. Harvey followed it three years later with Pink Elephants. The next year, Harvey and musical partner J.P. Shilo dug deeper into Gainsbourg's catalog for the typically excellent Delirium Tremens. Intoxicated Women marks his final volume of Gainsbourg tunes...

Foxygen - Follow the Leader 4:13
...Also Foxygen's first professional-studio album, Hang was recorded at Vox Studios in Los Angeles with help from, among others, Trey Pollard (Natalie Prass, Matthew E. White), who arranged and conducted the orchestra. The band not only justifies but seems to maximize use of all of the above on an exuberant 32-minute LP that keeps upping the ante. Turn the dial to early-'70s AM gold for "Follow the Leader," with its funky groove, big brass, (surely choreographed) female backing vocalists, and France's sassy snarl...



Kelly Lee Owens - Anxi. [ft. Jenny Hval]
Since Kelly Lee Owens unleashed her rework of Jenny Hval’s “Kingsize” in 2015, the Welsh musician’s output has started to converge her ever growing appetite for techno into the hazy soundscapes that previous songs like “Lucid” exhibited. With the first single from her debut self-titled record, “Anxi.,” a bonafide collaboration with Hval, Owens’ returns to the liminal space between pop and ambient, with dreams of the dancefloor in mind. Their new collaboration recalls Owens’ personal affinity for water—the track is slippery and prone to quick state changes.


Cloud Nothings - Enter Entirely 4:58
Leading up to their fourth LP, Life Without Sound, Cloud Nothings find themselves in more polished territory, with the help of producer John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie). This is not to say the Ohio band doesn’t still love harsh guitar riffs and introspective lyrics, and on their latest single, “Enter Entirely,” Dylan Baldi reflects on what it’s like to watch your life pass you by. Instead of moving forward, Baldi finds himself frozen in time, isolated and contemplating what steps he can take to be the person he wants to be: “There’s someone I would like to be if I could be, but the path is frightening,”

Sleater-Kinney - What’s Mine Is Yours (Live) 4:24
Sleater-Kinney have shared a live version of their The Woods track “What’s Mine Is Yours.” It was recorded at La Cigale on March 20, 2015, and will appear on their forthcoming record Live in Paris (out January 27 via Sub Pop).







Diet Cig - Tummy Ache 2:40
Just as your feed was peppered with lists of albums that made lasting impressions on then-teenage music nerds, the New York duo Diet Cig dropped a song that pulls you right into singer Alex Luciano’s awkward formative years. “It’s hard to be a punk while wearing a skirt,” Luciano asserts, compressing a teen movie into the song’s two-and-half minute runtime. “Tummy Ache,” the first single from their forthcoming debut album Swear I’m Good At This, is the band’s latest concentrated shot of nostalgia after the brisk, lo-fi indie pop of 2015 debut EP Over Easy...
