Originally imagined as the group’s fifth album of 2017, Changes has ended up the fifth album King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will release in 2022. Good things come to those who wait, and the magnificent Changes is worth every one of the 2,628,000 minutes King Gizzard invested in it. Soaked in warm sonics of ‘70s R&B and guided by simple chord changes that contain multitudes, and rounding out another remarkable year for the group, Changesis a luminous, soft pop marvel. Come lose yourself in its slow-cooked brilliance. This LP is pressed on 180-gram recycled black wax housed in an outer card jacket in place of shrink wrap.

Mute is excited the announce the release of Nicolas Bougaďeff’s new album Begin Within, out October 7th on vinyl, CD and digital formats. The vinyl inludes a printed inner sleeve with lyrics and a high definition download code. This is the first vocal-lead record from Nicolas, and is inspired by self-transformation. It’s about honesty, instinct and lessons hard learned through intimate Berlin stories. Nicolas addresses these themes in form and content, explored with the use of his voice. Much like his debut album The Upward Spiral, Begin Within continues to illustrate Bougaďeff’s approach to electronic music from a compositional lens, pushing boundaries of rhythm and genre.

While their debut grappled with the mundanity of middle England, Gulp! Comes at you from a different angle entirely. The band aren't in their hometowns anymore and now spend a lot of time on the road and living the band life. "We were writing about our experience growing up, commuter towns in your early 20s and that sort of existence - it feels really novel for that period of your life," says Rob of their debut. "It reflected what we were doing and how we felt." The second was written after a period of intense change and evolution - for both them as a band and the world at large. Musically, Gulp! #veers away from the US alt-rock sound of their earlier music and towards something more emotive, with feeling - with dashes of XTC, The Bangles and their obsession, Bryan Ferry.

Renowned quartet Gov’t Mule – led by GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes – has announced their first-ever blues album, Heavy Load Blues. The album encompasses an even mix of Haynes’ originals and revered covers originally made famous by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Elmore James, Junior Wells, Ann Peebles, Bobby “Blue” Bland, and even Tom Waits and the Animals.

“For me, personally, it's kind of been on my list of things to do for years,” shares Haynes. “I didn't know if it was gonna be a solo album or a Gov’t Mule record. We play some traditional blues on stage from time to time and although it’s usually never more than a few songs per show, our approach to the blues is unique and based on our collective chemistry as a band.” He adds, “This album gave us a mission. Although in some way it was ‘anything goes,’ we wanted to stay true to the spirit of the blues in a traditional sense. It’s not a blues/rock record – it's a blues record. We wanted it sonically to sound different from a normal Gov’t Mule record.”

Though technically considered a studio album, Heavy Load Blues was recorded live in the studio at The Power Station New England on analog tape, utilizing vintage guitars, amps and other equipment to capture an authentic sound. The 13-track album was produced by Haynes alongside engineer and co-producer John Paterno (Michael Landau, Robbie Williams, The Steve Gadd Band).

One of the many standout tracks is the Junior Wells standard “Snatch It Back and Hold It,” which allowed the band to freely cover a classic while sandwiching a spontaneous jam called “Hold It Back” in the middle of a soulful, stirring interpretation that was given a decidedly funky groove. In that regard, while several titles may sound familiar to blues enthusiasts, the band – Haynes, Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Jorgen Carlsson [bass] – often opted to put its own spin on them. “I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home,” originally recorded by Ann Peebles, is one of the few songs on the record the band has previously played live. On their version, Haynes’ nimble guitar riffs are played out over a solid foundation of organ and rhythm, resulting in a kind of funk-like finesse. For the Howlin’ Wolf song, “I Asked Her For Water, She Gave Me Gasoline,” Gov’t Mule, who are known for pushing the parameters while melding a variety of genres — rock, R&B, jam, funk, jazz, and practically everything in-between, opted for a heavy, up-tempo and funky version that is a far cry from the original.

It's not too rare that an artist would be able to timeline their personal experiences and growth via the records they release, but very few electronic artists have done it as emotively or with as much artistic fulfilment as Gold Panda. Album title The Work is both a literal statement of the record he took six years to make and deliver, and then, digging deeper, a revelation that it reflects just as much to how he arrived in this place now. The result is a rich album that exudes an assured calm and creative wonder with an artist who's spent so long getting there himself.

Jimmy Edgar

Liquids Heaven

CD: $16.08 UNAVAILABLE

JIMMY EDGAR's latest release for Innovative Leisure, LIQUIDS HEAVEN, is a psychedelic canvas of future R&B, euphoric bass, mutant tear-the-club-up rap, foundation-splintering noise, and gossamer soul. On a surface level, it is a starburst of avant-garde fusion, collecting a diverse cast of eccentric geniuses and re-configured into an anthology of nü-musique concrete. As with all of his work, there is a deeper and subversive intent. Do not mistakenly believe that LIQUIDS HEAVEN is merely a technicolor dream of ethereal abstractions. It bangs as hard as anything to ever bump from a subwoofer. Over a polychromatic blast of crunk, 10KCaash and Zelooperz bounce on “Everybody” like a rap rave inside a 31st century space station. “Bite That 2” finds Trinidad James spitting flames over booty-shaking, wall-crumbling bass. On “Ya,” 645AR chirps over a metallic chassis of booming industrial funk. For all the high energy propulsion, there is a counter-balance of melancholic beauty. The album’s opener, “Euphoria” features a Liz Y2K vocal that levitates with plaintive longing. The Milk-aided “Dreams 1000000” sounds like the chimerical soundtrack to a manga utopia that needs to be imagined. Milk also appears on the finale, “Never Leave,” which captures a bittersweet sadness, the wistful emotion of the tide slipping away. Jimmy’s career has been a series of fascinating left-turns. Signed to Warp Records as a teenage electronic music prodigy, his work needs a scholarly bibliography to properly assess. He’s recorded for the world’s most respected imprints (Warp, K7, Hotflush, Innovative Leisure and his own New Reality Now). Raised in Detroit, there have been stints soaking up inspiration in Berlin, Atlanta, LA, and New York. His list of close collaborators includes the most innovative musicians of the millennium, including Hudson Mohawke, Danny Brown, SOPHIE, DAWN, Mykki Blanco, Vince Staples, and several full projects with Machinedrum as J-E-T-S.
