Lucero Announce New Album ‘All A Man Should Do’ Set For A September 18 Release

k05a0964

On September 18, Lucero will release their new record ‘All A Man Should Do‘ via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.  Following the release of 2012′s ‘Women and Work,’ Lucero’s new album contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more.

Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis‘s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them.  And for the first time they put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of Big Star‘s ‘I Fell in Love with a Girl.’  The track features Jody Stephens from Big Star singing back-up vocals, making it that much more special.

Mas Ysa, the creation of musician Thomas Arsenault, will be releasing his long awaited full-length debut, ‘Seraph’ on July 24 via MapleMusic Recordings..

Creating ‘Seraph’ took the better part of a year – it was crafted in Arsenault’s home studio, received additional production help from Steve Rivette (Liars, Black Dice) and was mixed by Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).  ’Seraph’ isn’t electronic music only for the club or dance floor, it’s electronic music for the heart. “This is personal,” Arsenault says. And while Mas Ysa displays Arsenault’s unabashed love of electronic music, and ‘Seraph’ puts forward a collection of songs that have made their creator a hit on dance floors across the world, what Arsenault says is important isn’t just the beats. “To me,” he says, “the truth just sounds different.”

New Release: Alabama Shakes ‘Sound & Color’ & San Fermin ‘Jackrabbit’

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girlsdemonstrates the tremendous strides made by the band. From the gently swaying, chiming title song to the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini,” Alabama Shakes build on the soulful blues-rock base and map a surprising, innovative new direction. See the Shakes live when they come up to Canada headlining Toronto’s Field Trip festival and hit the west coast for Squamish Valley Music Festival. San Fermin bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone wrote Jackrabbit by himself from start to finish, only to find that after a year testing the songs on the road the album wasn’t nearly finished. Ellis explains, “I went from being this isolated composer guy, out in the woods, to sitting in the back of a van with seven other members playing shows in rock clubs every night. When I got back, I revisited it all, ripped these holes in the middle of all the existing songs and added some new songs. I rethought everything I had been writing.” Watch the full band performing “Emily” and the “title track” live via their YouTube.

Pre-order “The Traveller” on iTunes HERE

Rhett Miller has been playing in touring bands (most notably, The Old 97′s) for the better part of 20 years.

Although the album was written and performed by Miller he also had some help, most notably by the members of Black Prairie, a band based in Portland that plays everything from bluegrass to klezmer to country and shares members with The Decemberists. The band (Black Prairie) entered the studio with the singer (Rhett Miller) and briskly recorded the songs that make up this album (The Traveler).

Pre-order ‘Headlights’ HERE

MapleMusic Recordings is proud to announce its latest signing, the Vancouver based folk rockers The River and The Road, who will be releasing their sophomore album ‘Headlights‘ on May 12, 2015.  Produced and mixed by Jamey Koch (The Tragically Hip, Ron Sexsmith), the album was recorded in both Vancouver and Toronto.

Headlights‘ is at times a bold step away from the acoustic songwriting that initially drove them, a change that can be likened to the evolution of their live performances. What has become clear is that The River and The Road is a band that defies definition and is willing to take chances.  The album hums with a mosaic of harmonies and has a fluidity that is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Ryan Adams.  From the dazzling complexity of their ballad ‘Coulee (The Prairie Song),’ to the foot stompin’, head noddin’ ‘Child With A Gun’, to their infectious ‘Strange Disease‘ – this is one addictive and enduring record.

‘Space Is Still the Place’ encompasses the idea of a “Future South,” which was developed by the band after touring across the country, heavily in the South, over the last few years.

Praise for ‘Space Is Still The Place’:

No matter how much research you put into figuring out who will be the hottest new artists of each year, another act comes into your vision with an output that absolutely blows you away.” - The Huffington Post

“‘Slipstream’, is a lush, space-western odyssey. Rolling in with a plodding bass line and restrained drumming, the track builds slowly before a hypnotic guitar riff oozes into the mix.’” - Consequence of Sound

This band brings a live rawness that masterfully bleeds into their records. It’s an unmatched je ne sais quoi that makes their sound relatable to the listener and devoid of condescension.- Life + Times

The once psych-rock track [Infinite Cities (Francis Preve Remix)] has a whole new sound that may surprise you, as it has taken on a house beat to carry you straight onto the dance floor.- Earmilk

LISTEN TO “FIRE” NOW ON SPOTIFY HERE

Ever since Pete Townshend coined the term “power pop” in 1967, fans, critics and musicians alike have clung to its principles of crunchy guitars, smooth harmonies and tales of tragic young love, in the never-ending battle to keep rock and roll’s flame burning brightly.

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Taylor Knox is poised to make a significant contribution to the cause when his debut solo EP, Lines, is released March 31 on MapleMusic Recordings. With six tracks, each consistently clocking in at around three minutes, Lines is the perfect taste to get the unsuspecting listener permanently hooked on Knox’s irresistible sugar high. From opening track “My Backyard” to meditative closer “Good Enough” the Toronto native displays songwriting prowess far beyond his years, conjuring the magic of Big Star and Revolver-era Beatles.

Lead single “Fire” remembers to seize the day. “My friend’s restaurant burned down in a fire that started in the house next door,” says Knox. “One day everything was normal and the next day the restaurant was gone. It got me thinking about how things can change so quickly and you have to make the most of what you’ve got right now.”

This song is dedicated to everything that never goes out of style that you can do a million times and never get tired of.”
