New Release Round-Up 11-24-14

New Release Round-Up 11-24-14

Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the new concert film and live album from Coldplay. Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the Ghost Stories Live 2014 film documents the band’s unique performance of the Ghost Stories album to a small handful of fans in March 2014, two months prior to the album’s release. Shot in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band’s performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery.

Bjork - Biophilia Live [w/Blu-Ray]

Biophilia Live, the concert film by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland, captures the human element of Bjork's multi-disciplinary multimedia project: Biophilia. recorded live at Bjork's show at London's Alexandra Palace in 2013, the film features Bjork and her band performing every song on Biophilia and more using a broad variety of instruments - some digital, some traditional and some completely unclassifiable. The film has already been hailed as "a captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers" (Variety) and "an imaginative stand-alone artwork" (Hollywood Reporter) and is a vital piece of the grand mosaic that is Biophilia. The album is available now and you can preview the tracks as well as watch the Trailer Video here.


Jason Isbell - Live At Austin City LimitsOn August 19, 2013, Jason Isbell and his band The 400 Unit, stepped out onto the stage in front of a live audience in Austin, TX to film his first appearance on the longest running original music series in the U.S., Austin City Limits. This special night for Isbell, his bandmates and all in attendance, is available on DVD as Jason Isbell: Live at Austin City Limits via Southeastern Records. Isbell performs songs from his critically acclaimed, award-winning album Southeastern along with songs from throughout his career, including fan favorites Outfit and Decoration Day. The set closed with a rousing rendition of the Rolling Stones' Can't You Hear Me Knocking, a live staple. The DVD is available now and to get you in the mood, you can watch a Video of his amazing performance of Cover Me Up here.

Slim Shady himself celebrates his record label Shady Records 15th Anniversary with the release of Shady XV. The compilation features two discs, the first features new material from Shady Records artists such as Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, D12 and Yelawolf, as well as the label's founder Eminem. The second disc includes the label's greatest hits, also featuring former Shady Records members Obie Trice, 50 Cent, Ca$his, Bobby Creekwater, and Stat Quo.

Hard on the heels of the 20th anniversary deluxe re-release of its chart-topping, five-times-platinum 1994 album, 'Superunknown,' earlier this year, Soundgarden's latest release is a rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Originals. This new collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil and features the newly-recorded song 'Storm.' Featuring 14 tracks, Echo Of Miles: Originals is the single-disc version of the also released 3CD Super Deluxe Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path, the first official Soundgarden release to include more than 26 years of rarities that have appeared as B-sides, album bonus tracks, EPs, soundtracks, compilations and live recordings.


Plus there are other great, new releases including Abandon Ship, the debut album from dance music elder statesmen, Knife PartyCirca Survive return with their new album Descensus. The incredible Lost On The River by The New Basement Tapes where T Bone Burnett enlisted Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford to take on long-lost lyrics from Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes Session is now available on vinyl. Iggy Azalea expands on her recent album New Classic by adding 5 extra bonus tracks for Reclassified. Super Producer David Guetta releases his sixth studio album Listen. Scotland's legendary electronic rock pioneers Simple Minds release Big Music, their brand new studio album and first new material since 2009. The Velvet Underground celebrate the 45th anniversary of their classic self-titled third album. And Since its release in 1984, Reckless has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. It has spawned huge hits such as 'Run to You', 'Kids Wanna Rock', 'Somebody', 'Summer of '69', 'One Night Love Affair' and 'It's Only Love' a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. 'Reckless' also gave Bryan Adams his first U.S. #1 on Billboard with 'Heaven' as well as a Diamond Award for over a million sold in his home country of Canada. The album was the turning point in Adams' career, leading him to tour all over the world and garner legions of fans with his legendary live shows. The 'Reckless' reissue has been personally overseen by Bryan working with many of the original team including Bob Clearmountain, Bob Ludwig and Jim Vallance. The 2014 deluxe remaster by Bob Ludwing enticingly includes seven previously unreleased bonus tracks. These tracks were written as demos with Jim Vallance - the co-writer on the Reckless album. Of utmost interest to fans will be the actual inclusion of the track 'Reckless' which due to deadlines did not make it onto the original album. The Remaster is available in the these formats: Single CDDeluxe EditionSuper Deluxe EditionVinyl and Blu-Ray Audio.

WE ARE STILL LISTENING TO...

Winterpills - EcholaliaWhile their full band was busy raising kids and committed to various day jobs, Flora Reed and Philip Price of Winterpills decided it would be fun to quickly record some of their favorite cover songs while the tape rolled. But what began as a small casual project morphed into an orchestrated, introspective transformation of a few well-known songs and quite a lot of under-appreciated gems: songs by Sharon Van Etten, Buddy Holly, Lisa Germano, the Go-Betweens, XTC, Beck, the Beatles, and more get the treatment of filtering through the alchemy of Flora and Philip s vocal & instrumental chemistry experiment. The stunning result, Echolalia, is available now and you can preview the tracks here.

For more information on these and other releases out this week, check out our New Releases charts by week section and don't forget that many of these titles are also available on vinyl.
