Perseverance carries us through the most turbulent,traumatic, and trying of times. When all hope seems lost, it shines a lightfrom the inside thats impossible toextinguish, no matter how hard even thedarkest forces try. That light also burns bright at the heart of GogolBordello. Since 1999, the band have consistently riled upaudiences with aninimitable patchwork of punk, gypsy, dub, folk, Latin swing, and EasternEuropean magic.

However, the New York-based collectivetrumpet the spirit of survival louder thanever on their eighth full-lengthalbum,SOLIDARITNE.

Mura Masa

Demon Time [LP]

Vinyl: $32.99 UNAVAILABLE

Releasing on September 16, Demon Time signals a deeper period of reflection for Mura Masa. From its whispered introduction its demon time to its messy finish, Demon Time is a journey into the unknowns of the night and the quiet revelations you might stumble across along the way.

Thats What Happened 1982-1985: Bootleg Volume 7 is the next installment in the celebrated, award-winning archival series that began in 2011, shining an in-depth light onto different eras of the legendary career of Miles Davis. In the 1980s, popular music had moved to a smoother, electronic-based sound that traded the steam of previous years for subdued arrangements meant to elicit peace and deep reflection. Miles Davis embraced this era, pulling inspiration from FM radio and an upstart music video channel called MTV. He was searching for the next frontier, letting his creativity roam. This music on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 captures that exploration, and finds Miles beginning to re-emerge in a creative landscape far different than the one he left in 1975. Hes touched every inch of pop culture while keeping true to his iconoclastic vision of jazz as amorphous art thats supposed to bend and flow and mutate to something else. OnThe Bootleg Series Vol. 7, we get to play in the rubble of what would become yet another period of unprecedented innovation. Beauty resides in evolution. This double LP collects highlights of Bootleg Volume 7 with over 80 minutes of unreleased studio material from 1982 to 1985 on white vinyl. Side men include a multi-generational whos who of jazz talent from JJ Johnson, Al Foster and John Scofield to Mike Stern, Marcus Miller and Daryl Jones.

The best music reflects a wide-screen view of the world back at us, helping distill the universal into something far more personal. Since forming in Austin in 2004, The Black Angels have become standard-bearers for modern psych-rock that does exactly that, which is one of many reasons why the groups new album, Wilderness of Mirrors, feels so aptly named.

Indeed, in the five years since the release of the bands prior album, Death Song, and the two-plus years spent working on Wilderness of Mirrors, pandemics, political tumult and the ongoing devastation of the environment have provided ample fodder for the Black Angels signature sonic approach. If the groups members were terrified as they honed new music heading into an election year, they realized they didnt even know how scary things could still get.

So, they looked inward, focusing on both their ongoing creative and musical development as well as their own struggles amid the external chaos. Wilderness of Mirrors hits even more close to home, as the group recorded solely in the friendly confines of Austin for the first time in more than a decade and entrusted co-production duties to its longtime front-of-house engineer, Brett Orrison.

Things are looking up for The Harlem Gospel Travelers, who return here with a new album, a new lineup, and a new lease on life. Produced by Eli Paperboy Reed, LookUp! marks the groups first full-length release as a trio, as well as their first collection of totally original material, and it couldnt have come at a more vital moment. The music still draws deeply on the gospel quartet tradition of the 50s and 60s, of course, but theres a distinctly modern edge to the record, an unmistakable reflection of the tumultuous past few years of pandemic anxiety, political chaos, and social unrest. The songs are bold and resilient, facing down doubt and despair with faith and perseverance, and the performances are explosive and ecstatic, fueled by dazzling vocal arrangements punctuated with gritty bursts of guitar and crunchy rhythm breaks.

Born out of anon-profit music education program led by Reed, The Harlem Gospel Travelerssingers Thomas Gatling, George Marage, and Dennis Baileyreleased their debut LP, Hes On Time, to rave reviews in 2019, with Pop Matters hailing the albums musical transcendence and AllMusic praising it as dreamlike and joyous. The record charted on Billboard, earned the Travelers high profile fans like Elton John (who invited them to appear on his Rocket Hour radio show on Apple Music), and landed them festival slots everywhere from Pilgrimage to Telluride Jazz.

Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek could hear the staggering differences in the songs they were writing for their third album as Whitney,SPARKthe buoyant drum loops, the effortless falsetto hooks, the coruscant keyboard lines. They suddenly sounded like a band reimagined, their once-ramshackle folk-pop now brimming with unprecedented gusto and sheen. But could they see it, too?

So in the ad hoc studio the Chicago duo built in the living room of their rented Portland bungalow, a shared 2020 escape hatch amid breakups and lockdowns, Julien and Max decided to find out. Somewhere between midnight and dawn every night, their brains refracted by the late hour and light psychedelics, theyd play their latest creations while a hardware store disco ball spun overhead and slowed-down music videos from megastars spooled silently on YouTube. Did their own pop songsso much more immediate and modern than their hazy originsfit such big-budget reels? Wed come to the conclusion we werent going to be filming Super 8 videos to this stuff anymore, Julien remembers with a grin. How about something more hi-fi, cinematic? When the footage and the tunes linked, Julien and Max knew they had done it, that theyd finally found Whitneys sound.

SPARKreintroduces Whitney as a contemporary syndicate of classic pop, its dozen imaginative and endearing tracks wrapping fetching melodies around paisley-print Dilla beats and luxuriant electronics. Whats more, Whitney reduces three years of extreme emotional highs and lows into 38 brisk but deep minutes, each of these 12 tracks a singable lesson in what it is they (and, really, we) have all survived. The recalcitrant ennui of opener NOTHING REMAINS, the devastating loss of TERMINAL, the sun-streaked renewal of REAL LOVE: However surprising it may sound,SPARKis less a radical reinvention for Whitney than an honest accounting of how it feels when you move out of your past and into your present, when you take the next steps of your lives and careers at once and without apology.SPARKmaintains the warmth and ease of Whitneys early work; these songs glow with the newness of now.

Pink Floyd

Animals: 2018 Remix [LP]

Vinyl: $30.98 UNAVAILABLE

Animals 2018 Remix- The iconic 1977 Pink Floyd album has been remixed for the first time by James Guthrie. Animalsis aconcept album, focusing on the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain, and was a change from the style of the bands earlier work. The album was developed from a collection of unrelated songs into a concept which describesthe apparent social and moral decay of society, likening the human condition to that of animals. Taking inspiration from George Orwells Animal Farm, the album depicts the different classes of people as animals with pigs being at the top of the social chain, dropping down to the sheep as the mindless herd following what they are told, with dogs as the business bosses getting fat on the money and power they hold over the other. Although its been a long time since 1977, the narrative of the album still resonates today as our social and economic situation mirrors that of the time.

The London Suede return with their ninth studio album, Autofiction.

As The London Suede began work on the songs that would become Autofiction, they decided to go back to basics. In a move that recalled their most formative days, Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling schlepped to a rehearsal studio in deserted Kings Cross to collect a key, hump their own gear, set up and start playing.

Speaking about Autofiction, Brett Anderson said: "Autofiction is our punk record. No whistles and bells. Just the five of us in a room with all the glitches and fuck-ups revealed; the band themselves exposed in all their primal mess."

First single "She Still Leads Me On" is the track that reconfigured what the album could be. A beautiful song written from Brett to his late mother. As its title suggests, Autofiction is one of Anderson's most personal records yet. Reflecting on the process of writing acclaimed memoirs Coal Black Mornings and Afternoons with the Blinds Drawn helped Brett get a newfound perspective on himself as a performer and singer in the public eye, much of which has bled into the lyricism of Autofiction.

Like many of his favorite songwriters (John Hartford, Lucinda Williams, Jeff Tweedy), Izaak Opatz is an ungulate in lifes winter pasture, chewing on and metabolizing disappointment, heartbreak, and the other tough stuff into enjoyable musical carbohydrates. A compulsive metaphorager (and inveterate wordplayboy), Opatz breaks it all down with enzymes of wry humor, thoughtful simile and close observation - a therapeutic process of narrativizing his own life that, almost as a byproduct, turns out savory nuggets of literate, confessional pop.

Ginevra is a new group comprised of vocalist Kristian Fyhr (Seventh Crystal), guitarist Magnus Karlsson (The Ferrymen, Primal Fear), bassist Jimmy Jay (H.E.A.T.), & drummer Magnus Ulfstedt (ex-Eclipse, Nordic Union). Ginevra's sound is adjacent to Nordic melodic hard rock like H.E.A.T, Eclipse, and the like, but simultaneously in the same ballpark of more modern American hard rock. Hooky, melodic, and anthemic while also being heavier and more guitar/riff oriented.

Phases is an ambient chamber music album which bridges improvised music with electronic production. Kenny Warrens trumpet and Dave Devines guitar tracks were processed with effects, samplers and modular synths by Michael Bailey, in turn creating new layers to improvise over, offering fresh avenues for the musicians to build transcendent soundscapes of texture and timbre that are at times warm and pastoral, other times eerie and disorienting, resulting in a spacious and sublime record.
