The Tipping Point (CD)

Tears For Fears

Tears for Fears have broken their eighteen-year hiatus with The Tipping Point . The band is in exploratory mode here, at times calling up their ‘80s heyday sound, at other times venturing into previously uncharted terrain as they draw influences from classic folk, electronic, and art-rock. At times the album feels haunted, at others it brings to mind the band’s more pop-oriented moments. Taken together, it feels just right. It’s stark yet lovely, infectious yet intelligent, all in the finest Tears for Fears tradition.

I Can't Let Go (CD)

Suki Waterhouse

On the actor’s debut full-length album, Suki Waterhouse’s smoky voice floats along unhurried, dreamlike melodies. On songs like “Put Me Through It” and “Wild Side,” Suki’s subdued presence exudes joy and strength alongside her pain and vulnerability, pouring out her heart into ballads of life, love, and loss.

Here It Is: A Tribute To Leonard Cohen (CD)

Various Artists

Blue Note has assembled some of the most legendary artists working in contemporary jazz, R&B, and rock music to tackle the oeuvre of another legend: Leonard Cohen. On Here It Is: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen , a diverse range of vocalists interprets Cohen’s devastatingly beautiful songbook, including Norah Jones, Peter Gabriel, Iggy Pop, Gregory Porter, Sarah McLachlan, Luciana Souza, Immanuel Wilkins, Bill Frisell, James Taylor, David Gray, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Mavis Staples. The project was produced by longtime Cohen friend Larry Klein, who brought together an all-star backing band for his all-star vocal contributors: there’s Bill Frisell on guitar, Immanuel Wilkins on sax, Kevin Hays on piano, Scott Colley on bass, and Nate Smith on drums. Greg Leisz appears on pedal steel guitar and Larry Goldings on organ. The song selection spans from 1967’s Songs of Leonard Cohen up to 2016’s You Want It Darker ; it’s a wonderful, lively reimagining of some of Cohen’s most beloved tunes.

Apocalypse Whenever (CD)

Bad Suns

Bad Suns deliver plenty of hooks and sunny melodies on their new album Apocalypse Whenever . The title track is an immediately infectious tune, seemingly crafted for driving around in summertime. “Maybe You Saved Me," a collaboration with PVRIS, is a catchy dance track that highlights Lyndsey Gunnulfsen’s and Christo Bowman’s complementary vocals. Then there’s the effervescent "Life Was Easier When I Only Cared About Me." These are well-produced pop songs designed to create good times all around.

The French Dispatch [OST] (CD)

Various Artists

Eclectic and evocative, it’s perhaps no surprise that The French Dispatch Original Soundtrack is every bit as carefully-crafted as Wes Anderson’s latest film. Just as the director builds aesthetically dazzling worlds in each of his films, this enticing collection of songs also casts its own singular little spell. Featuring an original score by Oscar-winner Alexandre Desplat, a cover of Christophe’s French pop hit “Aline” by Jarvis Cocker, and tracks from the likes of Gene Austin, Grace Jones, and Ennio Morricone, listening to this album will transport listeners to the charming, bustling streets of a fictional French city that stands outside of time, a place of imagination and dreams. Here everything is rich in effortless glamour and swooning romance. It’s a place listeners will want to return to again and again.


The Lumineers

Fans of The Lumineers' brand of Americana-infused folk rock will find much to enjoy on the band's latest, the aptly titled BRIGHTSIDE . With sing-a-long-ready choruses, rousing melodies and moving lyrics, the songs seem destined to rule the radio, reverberate across open-air amphitheaters, and basically become instant fan favorites. The riffs are rollicking, the pianos plaintive, and the vocals yearning and optimistic. That's what makes BRIGHTSIDE so special: in the midst of all of life's turmoils and traumas, The Lumineers share tales of transcendence.

Santa Baby (CD)

Alicia Keys

Move over Mariah, Alicia Keys has arrived with an album of holiday hits, old and new. Keys brings a stocking full of styles, from the old school ‘70s soul on “December Back 2 June,” standards like “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts),” to the reimagining modern classics like Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).”

Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys [Expanded Edition] (CD)

The Beach Boys

The timeless summer sound of California’s rock heroes The Beach Boys is celebrated with an Expanded Edition of their beloved anthology, Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys . The 3CD collection features remastered versions of 80 of their biggest hits and deeper tracks.

Growing Up (CD)

The Linda Lindas

When you burst onto the scene (any scene) with a viral video, the pressure’s on to prove your success wasn’t just a one-time hit. With the release of Growing Up , fans of The Linda Lindas can breathe easy knowing that these ultra cool teens and pre-teens truly deliver. That is, if you can breathe at all with all the head banging you’ll be doing to this killer album. “Racist, Sexist Boy,” the song that ignited the storm of attention the LA quartet would receive, is a let-‘em’-burn banger and worth the price of the album alone. But it’s not the only bravura performance on Growing Up . Each short-but-sweet track tears into your headphones with gleeful intensity, whether the band is flexing its pop muscles or creating riotous, no-holds-barred classic punk. Turn this one up loud—the Linda Lindas are the future of punk.

Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute To John Anderson (CD)

Various Artists

Album producer Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) has assembled an all-star roster of country music stars to pay tribute to renowned singer-songwriter John Anderson. Sturgill Simpson, Eric Church, the late John Prine, and more pay homage to Anderson’s hits like “Seminole Wind” and “Straight Tequila Night.”

Portrait Of A Legend 1951-1964 [Clear Vinyl] (LP)

Sam Cooke

Portrait of a Legend is an apt title for a compilation by Sam Cooke, one of the greatest voices ever in soul music. Portrait is the highly-regarded, consummate collection of the crooner’s hits, celebrating timeless classics like “Cupid,” “Twistin’ the Night Away,” and more.

The Other Side Of Life: Piano Ballads (CD)

Beach Fossils

On their latest, The Other Side of Life: Piano Ballads , Beach Fossils take inspiration from Dustin Payseur’s love for jazz greats like Chet Baker, Bill Evans, Vince Gauraldi, and Lester Young. Payseur enlisted Tommy Gardner and Henry Kwapis to help give his Beach Fossils back catalogue a smoky, dreamy new sound through the use of saxophone, upright bass, brushed drums, and piano. It’s a compelling experiment…and it works. Elegant, effective, and coolly downbeat, The Other Side of Life is well worth a listen.
