Cherry Glazerr – Call Me (feat. Portugal. The Man)
They’re here! The second batch of Yoko Ono‘s reissues are out into the world today. We’ve been honored to partner with Chimera Music on releasing Ono’s musical output from 1968 to 1985, and today marks the release of 1971’s Fly, 1973’s Approximately Infinite Universe, and 1973’s Feeling The Space.
What you hear on Fly is Ono’s disarming combination of opacity and visceral, personal transparency in full bloom. It’s also one of the most unbridled, most captivating soul albums ever made. And that’s right where she wants you: Vulnerable, wide open to any-and-everything, ready to have your world tipped onto its head.
There’s a fury at the core of Yoko Ono’s 1973 rock opus Approximately Infinite Universe that was not apparent on previously recorded efforts. Ono has always been a master of turning pain and sadness into art, but here, there’s a clenched-fist intensity that sets it apart in her deep, unparalleled catalogue. Ono absolutely intended to boggle the boys’ club of the music industry. Fast-forward to today, and Approximately Infinite Universe stands as a template for powerful female artists to follow in the years ahead.
The fact that the once-reviled Yoko Ono is inspiring a new generation of activists comes as no surprise if you’ve listened to Feeling the Space, her personal-is-political 1973 album that resonates remarkably forty-four years later. On such songs as the righteous chant “Woman Power,” the empathetic ballad “Angry Young Woman,” the hilarious proto-grrrl “Potbelly Rocker,” and the satirical “Men Men Men,” Ono sings in surprisingly straightforward fashion about the burdens carried by women and the mandate for feminism. Dedicated “to the sisters who died in pain and sorrow and those who are now in prisons and in mental hospitals for being unable to survive in the male society,” it’s an emotional exploration of the psychological toll of oppression.
Cherry Glazerr today release their video for “Call Me,” their new single featuring Grammy award-winning Pop/Rock Group Portugal. The Man.
Cherry Glazerr - the Los Angeles based trio led by front-woman Clementine Creevy, made their late night TV debut on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden last night. Joined by Reggie Watts, the band performed his remix of “Daddi,” the first single from Stuffed & Ready, released earlier this year.
Today Alex Cameron releases his third album, 'Miami Memory.' As with 2017’s 'Forced Witness,' Cameron’s flair for narrative and character are on full display, yet for the first time, 'Miami Memory'’s most frequent narrator is himself. 'Miami Memory' is Cameron’s love letter to his partner; a vulnerable, tender, and at times lustful, dedication to the one he loves.
Following “Far From Born Again, “Divorce,” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents the album opener and final pre-release single, “Stepdad.” Cameron has become a major presence in his girlfriend’s children’s lives, and “Stepdad” is an ode to the oft-mocked peripheral parental role.
