Record Release Roundup

Beatleholic Dave Humphries debuts his fifth album, Hocus Pocus on Joker Lane, at Humphrey’s Backstage on April 10. “The title came to me after my wife met this interesting guy while in her art studio at Balboa Park,” says Humphries. “The guy just kind of wandered in and, after hearing that her husband was doing a CD, he told her he’d been sent from God to give me the album title. How could I refuse a prophet like that?”

On April 13, Rafter shares his innermost Animal Feelings, an album he describes as “a marriage record, a lust record, [and] a death and sex record.”

Jet West has a new CD due May 1, while Circa Now are finishing a full-length with onetime Rolling Stones producer Alan Sanderson (featuring a local artist’s metal sculpture on the cover). Around the same time, Hargo — currently touring India — plans to release his Faint Glow EP, with photography by lensman Mick Rock.

Finally, Dave Howard is putting together a two-CD set of songs he wrote for others, featuring 20 tracks from Gregory Page, Sven-Erik Seaholm, A.J. Croce, Cathryn Beeks, Berkley Hart, and over a dozen more performers, tentatively scheduled for a late-May release.

Also new this month: Irish folk-punks Lexington Field debuted their five-song EP The Streets of Dover on St. Paddy’s Day, with a release party at the Belly Up.

Dreadlocked songsmith Gonjasufi released A Sufi and a Killer, co-produced by Gaslamp Killer, with a March 19 headline gig at Wit’s End.

Crashing Marbles held a release party set for their Pocket CD at 710 Beach Club on March 22.

The shoegazers of the FMera (pronounced ef-em-era) threw a release party for their first studio EP This Will Dissuade Me on Friday, March 19, at Hillcrest’s Ruby Room. “On the inside cover of the CD,” says singer/guitarist Michael Stauffer, “you’ll find a picture of the great French composer Claude DeBussy. Debussy was considered an impressionist, but he rejected that label. His style may be best described as experimental, and he challenged the notion of fitting into any particular mold. This best signifies what we’re all about, too.”

Also in March, Flogging Molly returns with a concert DVD and two-CD set, Live at the Greek. Additional new releases are now available from Mike Keneally, Steph Johnson, Higher Minds, and the glee gals of Bitter Sober (who recently saw members appear as delinquent musicians on the TV show Glee).
