“Some songs are made to fill summer stadiums as the last light falls over the crowd. Kaiser Chief’s new single “Coming Home” is one of them… reminiscent of David Byrne’s best work” - GQ

“Anthemic and immediately catchy.” - A.V. Club

“There’s an extraordinary moment when a third unfamiliar tune, ‘Coming Home,’ a U2/Kings of Leon-ish stadium-sized ballad, prompts an unexpected singalong.” - The Guardian

old 97

Americana legends Old 97′s return April 29 with their first album in partnership with MapleMusic Recordings/ATO Records, for ‘Most Messed Up.’

The record is a revealing, 12-track meditation on 20 years in music that finds them at their raucous, boozy best. It’s “a rock opera, a way-off Broadway musical about a musician’s life, loves and lubrication,” says music critic Bill Flanagan. Recorded in Austin and produced by Salim Nourallah, ‘Most Messed Up’ also features guest appearances by Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns N’ Roses) and Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case) on lap-steel.

New Orleans-based Hurray For The Riff Raff make their MapleMusic Recordings debut with ‘Small Town Heroes’. Originally from Brooklyn, HFTRR’s Alynda Lee Segarra train-hopped her way south where she formed the band along with Sam Doores and Dan Cutler of the Deslondes, among others. “Segarra’s clear-eyed, street-level portrait of her city demonstrates exactly what’s most valuable and remarkable about Hurray for the Riff Raff’s music: its commitment to truth-telling.” NPR said of the record in their First Listen coverage. Watch her full set recorded in October performing live on KEXP.

jessica lea mayfield

MapleMusic Recordings and ATO Records are excited to share this preview of Jessica Lea Mayfield‘s latest LP, ‘Make My Head Sing…’ set for release April 15th.

As the trippy, distorted sound of ‘Oblivious’ displays, the singer/guitarist consciously takes a heavier turn on the new album, which she co-produced at Nashville’s Club Roar Studio with bassist, collaborator, and husband, Jesse Newport.

“My guitar amps were so loud when we recorded this that it made me feel nauseous,” is how Mayfield recently described ‘Oblivious’ to Rolling Stone. “Bands are so big these days. I wanted to get the studio and make a rock record and hear real guitar tones and something heavy.”

Primus’ Les Claypool Announces New Duo De Twang Album ‘Four Foot Shack’

Four Foot Shack
Album Out February 4th Via ATO Records & MapleMusic Recordings

How “deconstructed” can a group get? How about just one vocal, one bass, one guitar, and a basic beat supplied by stomping on a mini-tambourine-doohickey? That’s exactly what everyone’s favourite storyteller/narrator, Les Claypool, is incorporating in his new band, Duo de Twang. While Les is still pulling double duty with the Primus lads, he has also found the time to unite with his old buddy, Bryan Kehoe, who fans will recognize from several past Claypool projects, and also as one of the main actors from Les’ hilarious jam band mockumentary, ‘Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo.‘ But unlike Primus, DDT focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things – as heard throughout the band’s debut recording ‘Four Foot Shack’, to be released via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings on February 4th.
