Singer/Songwriter Erin McCarley To Release 'Love, Save The Empty'

October 31st, 2008 9:59pm EDT
Erin McCarley
Erin McCarley calls the music on her debut album, Love, Save the Empty, a document of her search for authenticity in herself and in others. If that sounds heavy, there's a reason why: According to McCarley, "Loving You" is about "being honest at the beginning of a new relationship and saying, 'I have nothing left to give,' to this amazing person standing right in front of me." "Sleepwalking" profiles a cynic that can't hear it come back his own way. For the title track, McCarley was inspired to write a song about the effects stemming from a lack of role models in a parentless world. And yet...

Jim Boggia's 'Misadventures in Stereo' Out Aug. 5

August 3rd, 2008 3:30pm EDT
Jim Boggia
Misadventures In Stereo, the third album by widely lauded singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jim Boggia, is unmistakably the work of a true believer and pop craftsman who's closely acquainted with music's capacity for transcendent uplift. His confessional, deeply personal lyrics tap into the deepest and most universal of human emotions. Born blind in one eye and with limited vision in the other, Boggia grew up an only child with an acutely developed ear for music. His early fascination for such iconoclastic pop classics as the Kinks' Village Green Preservation Society, Nilsson Sings N...

Aimee Mann To Release Seventh Solo Album, '@#%&! Smilers,' June 3

April 20th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Aimee Mann
Aimee Mann's seventh solo release to date, '@#%&! Smilers,' is a return to form after the artistic detours of 2005's concept album The Forgotten Arm and 2006's Christmas CD One More Drifter in the Snow.

Featuring thirteen new original songs, producer Paul Bryan describes the record as "deceptively powerful...very rich and grand sounding". The songs range from the stripped-down-to-basics of "Columbus Avenue", to the almost Cars-esque synth-pop of "Freeway", along side the classic Jimmy Webb/Glen Campbell-era "Phoenix", and the hushed creepiness of "Little Tornado." The final song "Balla...
