    RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway

    RHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom HighwayRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway - NonesuchRHIANNON GIDDENS - Freedom Highway
    Freedom Highway, Grammy Award–winner and 2017 Grammy nominee Rhiannon Giddens follow-up to her highly praised debut album Tomorrow Is My Turn, is released by Nonesuch Records. The record includes nine original songs Giddens wrote or co-wrote while she and her band toured after Tomorrow Is My Turn's 2015 release, along with a traditional song and two civil rights-era songs, "Birmingham Sunday" and Staple Singers' well-known "Freedom Highway," from which the album takes its name. Giddens and the band will tour the U.S. in the spring.

    CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH - The Tourist - Clap Your Hands
    The Tourist nods to Alec Ounsworth's musical heroes--a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. ''Better Off'' and ''The Vanity Of Trying'' are lush, keyboard-augmented songs, while ''A Chance To Cure'' and ''Ambulance Chaser'' are rhythmically askew, and the sighing ''Loose Ends'' is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock.

    THE FEELIES - In Between - Bar/None Records
    Impose Magazine recently called The Feelies “… one of the most influential bands in the history of alternative and underground music” and Rolling Stone said that they are “a template of formal perfection.” They have influenced bands like REM, Yo La Tengo, Real Estate and WEEZER, Now during their 40th anniversary comes In Between their first album of all new material in over 6 years. While working the VU template they are famous for this album brings some interesting new sonics into the mix. The album is both quieter and decibolically furious than anything they’ve ever done.

    PISSED JEANS - Why Love Now - Sub Pop
    Pissed Jeans have been making gnarly noise for 13 years, and on their fifth album, Why Love Now, the male-fronted quartet is taking aim at the mundane discomforts of modern life—from fetish webcams to office-supply deliveries. "Rock bands can retreat to the safety of what rock bands usually sing about. So 60 years from now, when no one has a telephone, bands will be writing songs like, 'I'm waiting for her to call me on my telephone.' Kids are going to be like, 'Grandpa, tell me, what was that?' I'd rather not shy away from talking about the internet or interactions in 2016," says frontman Matt Korvette. Pissed Jeans' gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit make the band—Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)—a release valve for a world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo itself. Why Love Now picks at the bursting seams that are barely holding 21st-century life together. Take the grinding rave-up "The Bar Is Low," which, according to Korvette, is "about how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and music. There's no guy that isn't a total creep." 

    ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War

    ALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The WarALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War - New West RecordsALL THEM WITCHES - Sleeping Through The War
    Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons) and mixed/engineered by UK-bred young-gun Eddie Spear, All The Witches' Sleeping Through The War is the quartet’s most bold and well-crafted record to date. The album’s creation marks the first time in the band’s history that a record was written before entering the studio. This process allowed for an alignment of the band’s art, desire and time. Convening in Nashville for only six days after a year of relentlessly touring their New West Records debut Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, the band’s spirit coalesced in a rhythm of statement and melody that simply needs to be heard...repeatedly. With the guidance of Cobb and Spear, Sleeping Through The War captures the truest energy of the group, full blast, fun and contemplative. The record was made with volume in mind. Sleeping Through The War is meant to be played loud, cranked up and without reservation. Feel it live through your stereo system or listen to it speak in tongues through your headphones. The sounds are nothing without the songs, and the songs are nothing without the lyrics. This record is a result of constant touring, world travel, overstimulated/divided humanity, and a learning of awareness and compassion.

    LITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker

    LITTLE BIG TOWN - The BreakerLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker - Capitol NashvilleLITTLE BIG TOWN - The Breaker
    Little Big Town release their seventh studio album, The Breaker (Capitol Records Nashville). The album, produced by Jay Joyce, features lead single, Better Man, written by Taylor Swift, and is currently climbing the charts at radio. The Breaker is about letting go of things that break you, it's about the new ground you try and break as a human being and as a musician. Sometimes you're the one that's broken and sometimes you re the breaker, said Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. It's a sentimental record because we're feeling super grateful for our friends and family and the chance to share the next chapter.

    UPCOMING RELEASES

    DIA FRAMPTON - Bruises

    DIA FRAMPTON - BruisesDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises - Nettwerk RecordsDIA FRAMPTON - Bruises
    Dia Frampton writes cinematic pop that inspires and pulls at the heart. She has spent the past ten years building towards this moment, beginning at just fifteen with her sister (in Meg and Dia) and enchanting millions on a then-upstart show called The Voice. Her new music draws from all of the elements she has learned from - soaring pop vocals, orchestral grandeur and a never-ending DIY spirit. The aptly titled Bruises is the sophomore solo album. Set for release on March 3, the 12 songs form an autobiographical narrative arc that intersperses light and dark, traveling from self-doubt to fierce determination and will reconnect her with her large fanbase (400K combined social reach) to showcase her more mature sound. Her last album RED debuted at #1 on the Heatseekers chart.

    Ignition to use Community Crowd Funding for Expansion

    "Build the Stage" - Ignition Garage from FiveCore Media on Vimeo.

    Check out the campaign on Goshen Funded!

    Building Community

    Many of you have supported Ignition Music Garage over the last four years. This spring The Goshen News printed a story, Making A Scene, of how our work with 91.1 The Globe, resulted in the launch of Ignition Music Garage. The story highlights how much the professional musicians, agents, managers and radio promoters value our community because we create new fans for them. Our patrons and members comprise an amazing group of people that share a love of great music.

    Building a Music Scene

    Our event revenue has increased 50% so far this year because Ignition produced two outdoor shows at Goshen Brewing. Our first show in The Goshen Theater is scheduled for OCT 20. New venues and concert series are also launching in the larger South Bend market. This is a sign that the audience is out there. The question is how do we get that larger audience to try out Goshen’s scene? Goshen Funded is important to us because the whole downtown ecosystem benefits when a hundreds of visitors are in town for an event. High quality music, whether live or recorded, moves people. The shared experience of a live performance when music and the audience come together creates a magical feeling. Here at Ignition we pride ourselves on providing the stage where the magic can happen.

    Building a Stage

    The stage exists as more than a physical space. The stage is a metaphor for local creatives to produce their art from a platform in Goshen, Indiana. By connecting artists to more fans we advance Ignition, the artists, and the community. Our plans are to record high quality audio and high definition video from Ignition Garage, and offer digital distribution. We feel it is critical to bringing in younger fans. By moving into the digital realm, we'll connect with new music fans, and hopefully show the magic that happens when musicians and their songs connect with an audience. We believe that video and online music can be the first connection point between a listener and an artist. If the song and performance are compelling, a new fan is created.

    Building Artists' Careers

    5 Core Media, from Goshen College has been contracted to produce the first program, a film about the release of Wilson Reservoir’s new album, “The Last Will & Testament of Buck Baker”. The record is scheduled for a September 30 national release. The short film will be part of the promotion of the new album. Nate Butler of Nimble Wit Productions will be the Production Manager, Recording Engineer, and Music Producer for the project.

    Please consider an investment to help us build a larger stage and create our own media content to expand the Ignition community to a new larger fan base.

    Our goal is $25,000

    This will allow us to take the next step in building up the artists we feature!

    Stage Construction - $5,000

    Lighting Enhancements - $1,000

    Recording Equipment and Sound Board - $1,500

    Website Enhancements to include video and concert downloads - $2,500

    Pilot Film and Live Album - $10,000
