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.

El Mirador (CD)

Calexico

El Mirador is the evocative, imaginative new album from cross-cultural indie rockers Calexico. The band conjures the beauty and romance of the desert through their usual blend of Americana, rock, cumbia, and Tejano genres, this time throwing in a bit of a mid-century lounge vibe at times. The album feels both celebratory and searching—a fitting mix for a collection of songs the band has described as a response to the way the pandemic highlighted our human need for connection. The music of El Mirador feels vibrant and alive, richly textured with the small beauties and heartaches of life, each made more beautiful through their relationship to one another.

Comfort To Me (CD)

Amyl & The Sniffers

Amyl & The Sniffers continue to prove that there’s more to the band than riff-heavy, lightning-fast punk – not that there’s anything wrong with that, especially their infectious brand of it. But singer Amy Taylor’s lyrics have an understated cleverness on their debut, and here they swing a wider net, taking on women’s issues with the fiery “Choices” and the sobering “Knifey,” or politics with “Capital” which rages against Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Then there is the hilarious “Security” where she pleads to be let into the pub because she’s “looking for love” and “not that drunk!” Comfort To Me is a rollickin’ good time with quick shots of welcome introspection and food for thought.

Quitters (CD)

Christian Lee Hutson

LA’s Christian Lee Hutson returns with an excellent new album, Quitters . Produced by Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, the album blends folk, country, and indie in ways that feel surprising and fresh. The lyrics paint realistic, relatable worlds filled with heartbreak and connection, Moms Against Drunk Drivers ads and SST Records fandom. Maybe that’s why, even in the music’s most gentle moments, the songs have deep, lasting impact— Quitters feels like you’re getting an intimate glimpse into the experience of being Christian Lee Hutson, an experience many listeners might find, in some ways, familiar.

Big Time (CD)

Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen’s Big Time is one her best yet. As the album opens with “All the Good Times” and segues into the title track, wailing guitars and melancholy memories set the tone for the proceedings to come, Olsen seemingly channeling that late night AM radio, all alone in the world weariness of classic country stars like Patsy Cline. Towards the end of the album, “Through the Fires” feels (fittingly) like a slow burn meditation on life and loss, the shadows cut through with flashes of light. Recorded in Topanga Canyon as Olsen processed the experience of coming out to her parents in the days before their unexpected deaths, Big Time balances grief with a belief in the beauty of life and love.

I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning (CD)

Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes' now legendary 2005 album I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning is back on shelves as part of the reissue campaign announced earlier this year. Selected songs from the band's seminal early releases are getting reworked by a cast of indie all-stars and released as companion EPs, with the accompanying original album getting polished up and reissued in tandem. On listening again, I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning still has an arresting power; no one can craft a story like Conor Oberst and many of the tracks on this album are simply unforgettable. As folky and warm as the compositions feel, there's also a deep well of emotion always on tap, whether Oberst is singing of redemption, loss, or both tied into one. It's a gem of an album that should win a whole new generation of fans with this new release.

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.”

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.

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.

Live At Yankee Stadium (CD)

Billy Joel

Could there be a more appropriate venue for a Billy Joel concert than the legendary Yankee Stadium? Captured at the height of his popularity, Live at Yankee Stadium presents a snapshot in time of the Piano Man at his best. Recorded over 2 nights in 1990, Joel delivers hit after hit to his hometown crowd.

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.

Beggars Banquet [180 Gram Vinyl] (LP)

The Rolling Stones

The Stones are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their hit album, Beggars Banquet , with a fresh reissue for 2022. All-time classic tracks like “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Street Fighting Man” have never sounded better.
