  7. I've been a fan of Laura Gibson's work for awhile, and love the new direction she's gone on her new album Empire Builder. It is her first album in four years and is due on Barsuk Records April 1st. PRE-ORDER: $17.99 $16.99 (Amazon) "Empire Builder is named for the Amtrak route Laura Gibson took while moving from Portland, Oregon to New York City in the summer of 2014. Out of her comfort zone, she found even more of a challenge than she'd envisioned. Immediately upon arrival, she broke her foot and barely left her 5th floor apartment for the first two months. Then, on March 26th, 2015, her East Village building burned to the ground in a horrific gas explosion which killed two people and left many homeless. Gibson escaped from her apartment unharmed, but lost everything: all identification, eyeglasses, musical instruments, years of notebooks and every word she had written in response to her move. It is no surprise that Empire Builder stands as her most personal record to date. But while the making of the album was cathartic, it s not just an auto-biographical mirror-gazing exercise; it s a huge leap forward for Gibson as a songwriter, composer and producer. Gibson gathered a stellar band of old friends to complement her songs: guitarist/bassist Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie, Menomena), drummer/percussionist Dan Hunt (Neko Case) and composer/violinist Peter Broderick. Other contributors include Nate Query of the Decemberists and vocalist Alela Diane." Hear "The Cause" via NPR
  8. I feel like this is more of the sound that I was hoping for from his collaboration with Dan Auerbach on his last album. Definitely different, but I dig it.
  9. You can hear "Hey No Pressure" from the new album via NPR here: http://n.pr/1OFMNDl
  10. Ray LaMontagne is back with a new album, and if you pre-order via Amazon, you receive pre-sale access for his 2016 tour. The album was recorded in collaboration with Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Amazon: $19.98 Via ew.com: "Ray LaMontagne collaborated with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James for his forthcoming album and listeners finally got a taste of what they made Wednesday when he dropped the fuzzy “Hey, No Pressure.” In the lyrics, the singer-songwriter laments watching someone dear to him buckle under the weight of their responsibilities. “Anything you want your life to mean/It can mean,” he assures them. The words certainly ring true for the artist. When EW spoke to him about the new album, Ouroboros, he said he doesn’t force his music. “I kind of equate it to the Peter Pan experience,” he said of his process. “If Peter Pan comes to your window and you try to tell him what you want to do or try to direct in any way, he’ll disappear. So that’s how I do it, I sit down and if it doesn’t feel right, then I just set it aside. I don’t force anything. I just let things happen.” As for working with James, LaMontagne says, “It was probably the best experience I’ve had in the studio, ever. It was just such a generous, kind, creative, playful atmosphere.” Ouroboros is expected to drop in early 2016." Hear the new track "Hey No Pressure" from NPR here.
  11. Again not a huge price drop, but Amazon has lowered the price to $19.99: http://amzn.to/1RWpYS8
