Record Roundup - local releases coming your way

“I’m real happy with how it turned out,” says Marcelo Radulovich of his new League of Assholes album, Raw Meat Diet. “It’s more of the unique blend of collaborative, third-mind art punk music we’ve been exploring these past 20 months, over four albums so far.” The heavily layered, Pink Floydian production features aural FX such as "A rabid dog on the left channel an angry gorilla on the right, the listener stuck in the middle of a confrontation...a spirited album performed by a virtual band, it explores the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual state of 'us and them' in the summer of 2018. Some 30 jagged minutes of obliquely constructed musical vignettes, held together by intention, sound and invention." Guests include fellow Trummerflora Collective vets Marcos Fernandes and Hans Fjellestad, as well as bassist David Ybarra and drummer Spud Davenport. Keyboardist James Call plays a vintage electronic theremin, with other experimental instruments such as a "guitarbage can" played by Randy Chiurazzi and a "strange partscaster guitar" strummed by Chet Harrison.

Also new this week are two EPs from hip-hop MC Michael May, aka Meidai, one called I Scare Myself and the other titled Professionally Unprofessional 2. "My hip-hop alias Meidai, pronounced Mayday, means a very strong individual in Greek," he tells the Reader. "It's also a three-headed horse ram dragon."

A.J. Croce, "I Got A Name"

A.J. Croce’s cover of his dad Jim Croce's song “I Got a Name,” currently featured in national Goodyear commercial with Dale Earnhardt Jr, is now available as a digital single. The sleeve artwork pays tribute to the classic photo of his dad smoking a giant cigar.

“I haven’t released an album in six years,” says blues singer Whitney Shay, who just dropped a ten-song full-length A Woman Rules the World. “I’ve heard tell from many sources that this will be the year of the woman, so I think it’s high time that we learn to own that and stand empowered together.” Featuring guest players such as pianist-organist Jim Pugh (who spent years touring with Etta James and Robert Cray), the release caps off a year that included a song in a Tyler Perry film (A Madea Family Funeral), her fifth South American tour, and her second consecutive San Diego Music Award for Best Blues Artist.
