    New Releases 20 July 2018


    Kanye West - Ye - Def Jam
    The seven-track release from Kanye West was streamed live from Wyoming and featured guest appearances from 070 Shake, DeJ Loaf, Jeremih, Kid Cudi, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Ty Dolla $ign, Valee and Charlie Wilson. Vinyl to follow next week.

    Ty Segall & White Fence - Joy - Drag City
    Ty Segall & White Fence are AS ONE again. Six years after their fun favorite "Hair" collaboration, and jeez, almost four years after Ty produced the last White Fence record "For the Recently Found Innocent", they're back at it. But the second time around, it's no Hair 2 - Joy is its own reward. Tim Presley and Ty take it up a notch, with fifteen wild tracks that share space in an effortless fashion, dispersing doses of the fabled vintage obsessions, but threading them together instead with their own sound of today. Joy, indeed!

    Lori Mckenna - The Tree - CN Records
    Home and the people who make it have captivated Lori Mckenna for years. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother of five, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music. Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three Grammy nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association's Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to co-writing Little Big Town's Girl Crush and penning Tim McGraw's no. 1 Humble and Kind solo. Both songs also clinched back-to-back Grammy wins for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music's first female Songwriter of the Year. The Tree is her much-anticipated eleventh studio album. Produced by Dave Cobb, The Tree takes one of McKenna's signature themes family and builds a tapestry of experiences she has lived and overheard, been told and dreamed up, to create a stunning ode to life's defining relationships.

    The Internet - Hive Mind - Sony
    Hive Mind is the new album from The Internet, and is the follow up to 2015's critically acclaimed and Grammy nominated album Ego Death. With this new album, THE INTERNET present enormous growth in their creative chemistry and prove they are a five-person force whose singular talents created one phenomenal whole. The album is written and produced entirely by THE INTERNET - Syd (vocalist/songwriter), Matt Martians (producer), Steve Lacy (guitarist/vocalist/songwriter), Patrick Paige II (songwriter/bassist), and Christopher Smith (songwriter/drummer). And it is with a sense of togetherness - not just for them, but for everyone - that the band chose to highlight as a major theme for Hive Mind. "After making a few songs we realized that we really want to use this album to live by example and promote camaraderie amongst young black people," Syd reveals. "We realized that we're the only band of our kind. And we want to really solidify ourselves as that, as the best." With the chaos of the current world considered, all of THE INTERNET wanted to champion good feelings and the joy of following your heart and passions, in addition to using their own positive relationships and experiences to inspire their community. The band unearthed an even deeper purpose as they collaborated on HIVE MIND. The result is not just one of the greatest records in the band's already phenomenal catalogue, but is easily one of the best albums of 2018, from five amazing people already leaving an indelible mark on pop music.

  • New Release Round-Up 07-13-18



    New Releases 13 July 2018

    Drake - Scorpion - Republic
    The 25-track fifth studio release for the Canadian hip-hop artist Drake features guest appearances from Jay-Z and Ty Dollar $ign as well as vocals from Michael Jackson and Static Major.

    Dirty Projectors - Lamp Lit Prose - Domino
    Lamp Lit Prose’ arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled ‘Dirty Projectors.’ Here David Longstreth’s band returns with a new album that is the yang to the yin of the 2017 effort. The songs signal a page turned for Longstreth: hope instead of heartbreak, a restorative balance. Guitars have returned to the Dirty Projectors’ world, intricate and gorgeous vocal harmony too. The album begins with “Right Now,” David singing, “there was silence in my heart, but now I’m striking up the band.” In addition to the core musicians and guests, LA string group the Calder Quartet, and The Brass Players of Los Angeles both appear on several songs. ‘Lamp Lit Prose’ is a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band’s trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope. Lamp Lit Prose will be the ninth release for Dirty Projectors and comes with collaborations from HAIM, Syd, Robin Pecknold, Rostam Batmanglij, Amber Mark, Empress Of and Dear Nora. Lamp Lit Prose was recorded at Ivo Shandor in Los Angeles.

    Deafheaven - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love - Epitaph
    Deafheaven was formed in 2010 by vocalist George Clarke and guitarist Kerry McCoy. They released their debut studio album Roads To Judah in 2011 . They added drummer Daniel Tracy to the group and released their breakthrough album Sunbather in 2013. After rounding out their line up with guitarist Shiv Mehra and bassist Stephen Clark—each subsequent live set felt like a religious experience for the bigger (and bigger) shows that followed. Their third album, and first for ANTI-, 2015’s New Bermuda, was heavier, sturdier, and more grounded in the dirt than Sunbather. They toured extensively to support New Bermuda playing tours and festivals with Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Danzig, and Gojira. Deafheaven’s new album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, finds them working with old friends again. The Jack Shirley-produced and Nick Steinhardt-art directed (of Touché Amoré) collection gets its title from Graham Greene’s novel The End of the Affair, referencing a moment when someone is looking for love, in all of its imperfection and simple beauty. This sentiment is carried throughout the hazy, yearning romanticism of the record with song titles and words as sumptuous as the sounds around them. Clarke describes the composition of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love beginning with “small seeds of healing, repair, and rebirth,” and like each subsequent Deafheaven album, this record is, in fact, a revelation. Defeat has inspired some of our best art. If you survive something terrible, you surface on the other side, walk toward the light, and come back to life. If you’re an artist, this kind of new self-knowledge can lead to creating something universal and remembered, something that can live longer than you do. While Deafheaven have managed to cross over this road in the past, they’ve nailed the feeling wholly with Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, a feeling that comes with experience and wisdom. Yes, everybody deals with hurt, everybody’s been the cause of their own implosions, and everybody has the capacity to overcome and love again. Deafheaven have found a way to externalize all of this, and in making their most complete record to date, they turn it into a balm and a cathartic exorcism.

    Between The Buried And Me - Automata II - Sumerian Records
    This is PART TWO of Between The Buried And Me’s two-part eighth album and introductory offering for Sumerian Records, Automata. The North Carolina quintet—Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. [lead vocals, keyboards], Paul Waggoner [lead and rhythm guitar, backing and lead vocals], Dustie Waring [rhythm and lead guitar], Blake Richardson [drums], and Dan Briggs [bass, keyboards]—explore these themes by personally smashing boundaries once again. Automata marks the band’s first proper double LP-spanning concept. They continue to expand their ever-evolving style, upholding a tradition of progression in the process.

     

    AHI - In Our Time

    AHI - In Our TimeAHI - In Our TimeAHI - In Our Time - Thirty Tigers
    Leading with his heart as much as with his head, AHI is an emotional yet discerning lyricist who would rather demonstrate love than use the word itself. He allows his light to shine inward but only to a degree, admitting to some autobiography on In Our Time but as glimpsed through an imaginative lens. While his music possesses a quality of timelessness, the sounds here reveal a broad spectrum of influence and also toe the line between retro and revelatory. None of that is by accident: the album, like its 2016 predecessor, We Made It Through the Wreckage, was recorded in Nashville -- a place AHI finds attractive for its sound and skilled studio hands rather than its glitzy polish -- and this time on analog-to-tape with flourishes of digital technology.

    BUILD YOUR RECORD COLLECTION



    "whenever I walk into somebody's house and they have a fantastic book or record collection, I'm like 'WOW, how cool!' it's just a beautiful thing. If I walk into somebody's house and they have no books or records its like 'whoa, what do you do for fun?'"
    - musician, Marty Willson-Piper


    There are not too many things better than a well rounded, beautifully curated record collection.  In this day and age of 'all things digital' it seems to be more appreciated than ever.  its a real treat to share with friends, family and colleagues and a constant conversation stimulator.  Even after 40 years of collecting records I am still on the eternal search to have the 'ultimate' collection, and although so much of it comes down to each of our own tastes, all music lovers can agree that the eternal search for the perfect collection is a fun but never-ending search.  Over the last 10+ years, we have seen so many people fall back in love with buying music. No matter if its CDs, Vinyl, Cassettes or Digital, it has been a fun transition to watch.  

    Therefore, starting this year we have decided to unveil a new program here at Schoolkids.  Hopefully it will be as fun for you as it is for myself and my staff.  We are calling it "Build Your Record Collection" and every single month during the year, we will focus our efforts on one particular genre of music (which can be vague, yes we know) but we plan to build an end cap in the store (and online) and offer our insights on many of the 'classic' titles of said genre via our media site, Blurt Online. 

    Obviously there will be tremendous amount of room for debate, that's not what we are here to discuss, its merely for someone who may just be starting out and want to dive in and need some direction. This journey never ends, in fact its more for myself to rediscover music as I love music of all types, not just one type and I assume many of you are the same.  We plan to keep this going every year and will go deeper and deeper in the future and welcome all of your feedback. We want to make this fun. 

    Therefore, with no further ado, let's get this started!



    For the month of Jan, where else do we start?  If you know anything about music you know that it all starts with The Blues.   Here is an editorial curated by our own Fred Mills on our Magazine site: Blurt Online.


    Here are THE BLUES titles we are featuring this month
    @ Schoolkids Records!

    you may purchase them in the store OR here online, CD, Vinyl, and Digitally!

  • Tommy Keene

    Tommy Keene (1958-2017)

    Here is an official statement on the sudden and shocking passing of Tommy Keene.

    Thanks to everyone who has sent along their kind messages, texts, posts and calls during this very difficult time. It's still really hard for me to believe and digest that he is gone. We had so many plans in 2018 and were going to talk this weekend about a timeline. His last message to me said "call anytime I am usually up late working on new songs" which I could not wait to hear more about.

    I have no idea where we go from here but I am beyond proud to have released 5 albums and one double album compilation with him in just under 12 years. We had recently retained the rights to the first album we did together (Crashing The Either) and discussing plans to press it on Vinyl for the first time ever.

    His music and his kind soul will live with me forever and I owe everything to him, as it was a scary, risky and daring move to break away 10 years ago and start my own company and I could not have done that without his loving support.

    He was truly a special person not just in my life, but in many of our lives which is so apparent tonight with all of the beautiful posts and remembrances. it is helping me cope so thanks for everyone who has posted something about his life, music and untimely and tragic passing.

    Rest in peace, Tommy Keene, Love you TK! forever and always. Thank you for the gift you gave all of our lives.

    - Stephen Judge, owner Schoolkids Records (aka Second Motion)

    --------------------------------------------

    Tommy Keene (1958-2017)

    Power-pop legend, acclaimed singer-songwriter, and venerated guitarist has passed away at age 59.
    Power-pop legend, acclaimed singer-songwriter, and venerated guitarist Tommy Keene has died.     
     
    The 59 year-old Keene passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, in his sleep at his Los Angeles area home on Wednesday. Keene – who recorded for Geffen, Matador Records, and Second Motion, among others – built an impressive and acclaimed catalog over the course of his nearly 40-year career, spanning eleven full-lengths, four EPs, three compilations, and a live album.  
     
    Hailed by fans, critics and fellow musicians for the moving and consistently high quality of his pop songcraft, he was also consummate rock and roller. Over the course of his career, Keene worked with a range of artists who admired his work, including The Replacements’ Paul Westerberg, R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Guided by Voices’ Robert Pollard, the Goo Goo Dolls, and the Gin Blossoms, among others.  
     
    Born in Evanston, Illinois and raised in Bethesda, Maryland, Keene launched his career in the late-‘70s as a guitarist with a series of Washington D.C.-area combos including the Rage and the Razz, before hitting the national scene as a solo act in 1982 with the release of his debut Strange Alliance.
     
    In 1984, Keene followed with a six-song effort titled Places That Are Gone (Dolphin). Blatantly romantic, unapologetically melodic, bittersweet but absolutely invigorating, the record landed high on the CMJ charts and atop the Village Voice Pazz & Jop EP of the Year poll.
     
    Keene was soon being courted by major labels and ultimately signed with Geffen Records for 1986’s Songs From the Film. Produced by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick, the album spawned two MTV videos and spent 12 weeks on Billboard’s Top 200. The accompanying Run Now EP led to the singer as well as its title track appearing in the Anthony Michael Hall movie Out of Bounds.
     
    For 1989’s Based on Happy Times (Geffen) Keene headed down to Ardent Studios in Memphis to record with producers John Hampton and Joe Hardy. The ironically titled disc is the darkest album in the Keene catalog, with heavier guitars, fewer jangles, and a more brooding, fatalistic outlook.
     
    Following the album’s release, Keene took a break from recording, eventually signing with Matador for 1996’s acclaimed “comeback” Ten Years After and its 1998 follow-up Isolation Party. Between 2000 and 2004 he released a live disc called Showtunes (Parasol), The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down (SpinArt) and rarities/demos/unreleased-tracks collection Drowning: A Tommy Keene Miscellany (Not Lame).
     
    Keene also developed a career as in-demand sideman: he was a touring member of Sony/Creation-signed rockers Velvet Crush, and appeared on their 1995 live album Rock Concert. In 1996 he joined Paul Westerberg’s band, handling lead guitar duties on the Eventually tour and making appearances on “The Larry Sanders Show” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.”  A trek opening for Guided By Voices led to his joining Robert Pollard in 2006 as a touring member of Pollards post-GBV band the Ascended Masters and, two years later, Boston Spaceships.
     
    Meanwhile, 2006 also saw the release of Keene’s Crashing the Ether (Eleven Thirty), along with Blues and Boogie Shoes, a collaboration with Pollard under the Keene Brothers moniker. He put out a double-disc career-spanning set in 2011, Tommy Keene You Hear Me: A Retrospective 1983-2009.
     
    In recent years, Keene continued to delivered a series of accomplished solo records for the Second Motion/School Kids labels, including 2015’s Laugh in the Dark, his final studio album. Keene had spent much of the past year on the road opening shows for fellow pop-rocker Matthew Sweet.
     
    Keene is survived by his longtime partner, Michael Lundsgaard, his father Robert Keene, step-mother Dorothy Keene, brother Bobby Keene, nephews Hunter and Jason Keene, and his beloved dog, Coco.
