Local Eugene favorite Halie Loren releases live CD nationwide

The first thing you notice is that voice: deep and rich and warm, gorgeous, graceful, and somehow earthy and ethereal at once. Think Peggy Lee and Billie Holiday and Joni Mitchell, or, more recently, Diana Krall or Norah Jones. For over 10 years, Eugene native Halie Loren has developed a style in singing and songwriting that is familiar yet totally her own. Her new album shows Halie at her best, in front of a live audience. From great originals (Free to be Loved, They Oughta Write a Song) to interpretations of rock classics, (Sunny Afternoon, Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For), Halie Loren proves that her voice is certainly a must hear voice of the new decade.

Halie Loren's national debut "Stages" is on sale now at CD WORLD for only 9.99!

Crazy Awesome New Releases Out Today!

We've got three of the most anticipated releases of the year (perhaps decade?) waiting for you!

1. GORILLAZ--Plastic Beach SALE PRICED $10.99 (DELUXE VERSION ONLY $19.99)

Plastic Beach unites a huge list of guests, creating yet another well-crafted and dance-friendly set of songs. The songs demonstrate a genre-bending collection of glitchy club beats and hip-hop grooves, augmented by brass, glitzy synthesizers and Asian- and Arabic-tinged orchestral harmonies. -NPR


Brian Burton, a.k.a. Danger Mouse, always seems to be working on something, but this feels different. Burton has teamed up with James Mercer, who's spent more than a decade leading his band The Shins, to form Broken Bells. This is a smart pop record full of melody and invention. It's pretty and at times unorthodox, and it finds both Burton and Mercer drawing on each other's talents to make a record unique to each of them.

3. JIMI HENDRIX--Valleys Of Neptune SALE PRICED $11.99

Also available today: Deluxe reissues of classic Jimi albums!

The arrival of a new Jimi Hendrix album is an extraordinary occasion. Most of these 12 songs were recorded in 1969 in London and New York after the Jimi Hendrix Experience's third and final studio album, "Electric Ladyland." In the 18 months leading up to his death in September 1970, Hendrix was in the midst of transition borne of confidence and success. These sessions were his last with the Experience's Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell and first with Billy Cox, Hendrix's old army buddy who'd take up bass duties in Band of Gypsys later in the year. The heart of the album (if a posthumous collection can truly be considered such) is the title track, a fully finished and commercially unreleased song. It's brief, beautiful and haunting: Hendrix longing for a sort of cosmic release from earthly constraints, cooing, maybe to himself, "rise on, baby, rise on."

Also available today are new releases by: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Ben Harper, The Chieftans/Ry Cooder, Pavement, Liars, The Knife, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Ludacris, and SO MUCH MORE!
