Peter Perrett
How The West Was Won
Domino
 
Peter Perrett - former frontman of The Only Ones - releases his debut solo album How The West Was Won. Perrett, whose incisive songcraft and sardonic drawl made him one of the most distinctive voices of the '70s hasn't released any music for 20 years. Bearing in mind his most famous song began "I always flirt with death" (The Only Ones’” Another Girl, Another Planet"), this is one comeback that nobody saw coming.
 
Jaymes Young
Feel Something
Atlantic

 
Jaymes Young will assure you that he's a “songwriter before a singer and performer.” That wise and self-aware summation cuts to the core of who the Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based musician/poet really is. He still spends countless hours holed up in his bedroom carefully piecing together compositions, penning lyrics, and exploring sounds. His musical wanderlust yields a sound steeped in pop palatability, dusky cinematic electronics, and stark, stirring instrumentation.
VÉRITÉ
Somewhere In Between
VÉRITÉ

 
On Somewhere In Between, VÉRITÉ collaborated with producers Liam Howe (Lana del Rey, Ellie Goulding, fka twigs), Tim Anderson (twenty one pilots, Solange), Peter Thomas (Betty Who), James Flannigan and Zach Nicita. Somewhere In Between blends electronic and alt-pop elements together effortlessly into a rhythm-driven sound that is ornately arranged with emotionally raw lyrics that “dissect fragments of my experience as a human and twist them in unusual ways,” according to VÉRITÉ. “but the lyrics are more about my relationship with the world, and dealing with things like apathy and boredom.”

Flagship
The Electric Man
Bright Antenna

 
When Flagship – a group of talented Southern boys, hailing from Charlotte, NC – gather together to innovate more of their tightly wound, ethereal diacoustics, it's a virtually effortless endeavor. Their sound is visionary and vivid, reflective of the minds and hearts behind the chords and percussion. At the helm is Drake Margolnick, whose lofty melodies and contemplative lyrics are carried to listeners by a band largely characterized by rapturous orchestral sounds. The Electric Man, which was produced by Joey Waronker (Atoms For Peace, Beck, Air).

Many of the accounts have been recognized by the music industry and their local communities for their outstanding dedication to customer service and developing artist support.

Each member is bound by its shared love of music, a reputation for great selection and customer service in its community, yet each CIMS account is as unique as the market it represents. Most importantly, CIMS member stores continually seek to challenge the jaded, color-by-numbers advertising and marketing of other retailers.
