BEN FOLDS FIVE, BEN FOLDS FIVE LIVE
This is the fourth album release for the alternative trio led by pianist and singer, Ben Folds. This is also the first live album for the band to release. The album was recorded in 2012-2013 on the band’s first tour in over a decade while they were promoting their last record, The Sound of the Life of the Mind.
CAPITAL CITIES, IN A TIDAL WAVE OF MYSTERY
We finally have the full length album from LA’s electronic duo Capital Cities. Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian have synth heavy songs that showcase elements of the new wave and disco. In a Tidal Wave of Mystery has a total of twelve tracks including the hit, “Safe and Sound.”
PORTUGAL. THE MAN, EVIL FRIENDS
Portugal. The Man was working on their new album and had already been recording for about two weeks when they had the opportunity to work with producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton. The band scrapped their past two weeks of recordings and moved from a studio in El Paso to L.A. to work with Danger Mouse. I am extremely happy that Portugal made this decision because Evil Friends is the perfect collaboration between a band and producer. Danger Mouse did not try to change the signature sound of Portugal. The Man, but added layers to it to make it more dynamic.
