Hurray For The Riff Raff – The Past is Alive



Building off of collaborations with DUA LIPA, SHYGIRL and EARTHEATER as well as the cult success of her 2021 LP Sensational, Still sees ERIKA DE CASIER delve deep into sultry electronica and throwback R&B. Her sonic palatte is rooted in world of dance music, and these tracks end up as skillful forays into trip-hop, drum’n’bass and hip-house. But at the forefront is DE CASIER’s voice, never aggressive but always expressive in wrapping tight, hooky melodies around these beats. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED.

>> HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF – The Past is Still Alive LP/CD (Nonesuch) *Translucent Orange Crush” Vinyl

After some thrilling detours into other genres on the defiantly radical Life on Earth, Alynda Segarra returns to their vintage roots-rock sound for this latest entry under the HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF banner. Alynda sounds laser-focused after a few years in the wilderness, their voice clear as a bell over chiming guitars and crisp drums. This is powerful folk music of the first order, informed by struggle and pulsing with life. Deftly produced by Brad Cook (WAXAHATCHEE, BON IVER) and featuring CONOR OBERST, HAND HABITS’ Meg Duffy, ANJIMILE and SG GOODMAN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> MGMT – Loss of Life LP/CD (Mom + Pop) *Black or Indie Exclusive “Blue Jay” Vinyl

The mighty psych-pop duo MGMT return for their fifth studio album, and Loss of Life (“lol?”) is a little harder to pin down compared to the icy synths of their previous effort Little Dark Age or the technicolor party rock of their debut Oracular Spectacular. The sonic influence here ranges from vintage chillwave to stuffed-up 70s glam to synth punk with a collage-like pace. Great, energetic stuff from a band that’s been going at it for nearly twenty years. RECOMMENDED!

>> MARY TIMONY – Untame the Tiger LP/CD (Merge) *Black or Peak Vinyl Edition Neon Pink Vinyl

For her first solo album in 15 years (after stints with the supergroup WILD FLAG and fronting the kickass power trio EX HEX), ex-HELIUM singer/songwriter/axe wielder MARY TIMONY looks inward for a set of intricate, tightly wound folk-rock tunes. It trades in her vintage face-melting riffage & wild energy for a different kind of rawness, fresh as an open wound. Fans of RICHARD & LINDA THOMPSON and FAIRPORT CONVENTION (whose drummer Dave Mattacks very coolly guests here) will absolutely adore this record. RECOMMENDED!

>> NEIL YOUNG – Dume 2LP (Reprise) *Indie Exclusive Ltd. Edition w/ art print & lyric poster

Dume was originally released as part of the Archives Vol. II box set in 2020. The title comes from Pointe Dume, a promontory off the coast of Malibu where Neil & CRAZY HORSE wrote & recorded the songs. The sessions would be whittled down to form Zuma, one of Neil & the band’s greatest achievements. Now expanded with outtakes & alternate mixes, Dume is a new look at the Zuma era with 7 songs that have never been on vinyl before. This is as good as these Archives releases get in our opinion. RECOMMENDED!
