Record-Release Roundup

Tragic Tantrum

The dark cabaret known as Tragic Tantrum launches their debut album Mirror, Mirror with a February 4 release party at Hillcrest’s Ruby Room. “The set will consist of the usual theatrics, drama, and some newly written material that will be performed for the first time ever,” says trio keyboardist-guitarist Zephyrus Tragic. “We’re also incorporating fire, circus, and vaudeville throughout the night, and we’ll have a seven-foot, two-inch, 1200-pound rocking horse for fans to ride.” The album cover was shot by Dan Arsenault, photographer for No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom.

Also new this week is the debut from teen singer-songwriter Christina Ashley, Let It All Go, featuring tracks written by the 17-year-old pianist, and songs by Elton John, Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, and Paul Simon.

Privatized Air’s February 13 show at the Ruby Room is a free release party for their second album, Tomorrow or Something. “Our drummer is back from rehab, and we’re back to work,” says singer-guitarist Jonny Q. “Rehab is for quitters, though we’d rather keep the details of the rehab thing private, so Courtney Love doesn’t try to take our babies away.” As for the new album, “It features a Christmas song inspired by William S. Burroughs and a track that compares the passion of love to drug addiction and murder.”

Travis Barker’s guest-heavy first solo album Give the Drummer Some drops February 22. Coproduced by the blink-182 drummer, the record features appearances from Slipknot singer Corey Taylor, Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington, B.o.B, Slash, Snoop Dogg, Tom Morello, and Lil Wayne.

While Crocodiles spend February touring Europe with White Lies, their single “Mirrors” drops February 28, featuring a B-side cover of Elton Motello’s “Jet Boy, Jet Girl.”

Stevie and the Hi-Stax will be debuting new songs from their upcoming album Make Believe during their Monday residencies at Bar Pink throughout February.

League of Assholes main man Marcelo Radulovich launched his own label, Titicacaman Records, to DIY-release his new solo album Summer in Winter. “Continuing my love affair with drum machines and electronics, I’m playing all the instruments,” says Radulovich. “Though I recorded most of the album over a year ago, I finally rolled up my sleeves, fed it some bottom end and a bit of fuzz, gave it a haircut, rubbed its shoulders and feet, and took it for many walks until it finally let me finish the thing.”
