Warm (CD)

Jeff Tweedy

Jeff Tweedy gets vulnerable on his first proper solo LP, Warm . The melodies are immediately likable, the tone of the album confiding, open, and direct. Tweedy eschews Wilco’s more rollicking moments for an introspective, familiar tone; the album title is fitting. He approaches epic thematic elements — death, love, pain — with grace and intelligence. It’s a richly moving work of art that’ll give even longtime fans a new light in which to see the indie legend.

Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa (CD)

Jeremy Dutcher

Vocalist/composer Jeremy Dutcher's debut combines post-classical arrangements with samples from archived recordings of his Wolastoqiyik First Nation's first music, stored at the Canadian Museum of History. The results are both operatic and earthy, buoyed by strings, percussion, electronics, piano, and Dutcher's soaring tenor vocals. The opening track “Mehcinut” builds to a stunning climax and then slides into a peaceful conclusion with scratchy original vocal samples at the center. “Essuwonike” features pounding drums and a stirring rhythm, signaling early on that this is not sleepy New Age, but its own kind of unique baroque pop.

Ingenue Redux: Live from The Majestic Theatre (BLU)

K.D. Lang

Fans of K.D. Lang's sumptuous voice can now enjoy the 25th anniversary concert for her widely acclaimed 1992 album, Ingenue , on Blu-ray. Filmed at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, TX, Lang performs mega-hits like “Constant Craving” and “Miss Chatelaine,” which was a step away from her previous country music stylings, into a new world of jazz and cabaret-influenced pop. The concert also includes an unreleased song entitled “Sleeping Alone” and Lang's cover of Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah,” as well as highlights from the rest of Lang's catalog.

Springsteen On Broadway (CD)

Bruce Springsteen

What is Springsteen on Broadway ? Based on The Boss’ best-selling autobiography, Born to Run , it’s a thoroughly enjoyable, down-home performance written and performed by the 20-time Grammy Award winner, featuring beloved songs and personal anecdotes. Springsteen’s homespun charm is on fine display in this collection, recorded from the actual Broadway show that would become a Netflix special. Fans will love the opportunity to get further insights into the life and art of this essential artist. Affecting and affectionate, it’s a tribute to decades of now-classic songwriting and Springsteen’s growth, integrity, and passion as an artist.

Guide Me Back Home (CD)

City And Colour

Dallas Green AKA City and Colour (and formerly of Alexisonfire) went on a stripped-down acoustic tour across Canada in 2017 and this double CD, Guide Me Back Home , is the recorded companion to those intimate shows. The album, which marks the debut of Green's new label Still Records, includes his interactions with the crowd between the emotional folk-rock songs and shows off his songwriting chops. Among the highlights are older numbers like “Comin' Home” and the soulful “If I Should Go Before You.”

Red Rose Speedway (CD)

Paul McCartney & Wings

Red Rose Speedway , with its classic No. 1 hit “My Love,” makes its entry into Paul McCartney's Archive Collection with a splash: a two-disc CD edition. Features newly remastered audio from Abbey Road Studios, plus unreleased tracks, singles, and b-sides.

Shake The Spirit (CD)

Elle King

Elle King’s Shake the Spirit shows off her musical pedigree and spitfire style in a fast-paced, enjoyable fifty-minutes. The LA-based singer has a rough-and-tumble rock ’n’ roll voice that recalls Wanda Jackson, with plenty of modern sass and honesty to spare. (Case in point: “Naturally Pretty Girls,” in which King discusses body image, the ease of living enjoyed by girls with perfect skin and hair, and her views on her own looks.) Listening to Shake the Spirit feels like pulling into some low-down dirty backwoods dive for a raucous, let-the-good-times-roll tour de force. A unique spin on retro styled genres with plenty of heart to spare.

Chris Cornell (CD)

Chris Cornell

With the music world still processing the untimely loss of former Soundgarden/Audioslave leader Chris Cornell, the beloved rocker is given his first official career retrospective. Put together by Cornell's widow Vicky "for his fans," the set covers all periods of his career and includes previously unreleased tracks taken from the archives. Available as a single CD, two LP, four CD deluxe and CD/LP/DVD super deluxe box sets, Chris Cornell serves as a fitting tribute to a performer whose "voice was his vision, and his words were his peace."

Fool (CD)

Joe Jackson

One of the most musically literate of the New Wave songwriting sect, Joe Jackson slowly graduated from acerbic-yet-tuneful, Elvis Costello/Graham Parker-indebted spunk to the sophisti-pop and yuppie rock of his most successful period, with Night and Day and Body and Soul both acting as perfect soundtracks for all the Gordon Gekkos and Patrick Batemans of 1980s NYC. Fool , his first studio album in 4 years and 21st overall, splits the difference between his two best-known eras. A song like “Fabulously Absolute” strips off the soft edges Jackson is so often fond of and transports us back to late '70s England, evoking not only Look Sharp! but the hyperactivity of early XTC as well. On the other end of the spectrum lies “Strange Land,” a patient ballad that is as smooth as smooth can be. Drenched in jazz piano and atmospheric synths, it moves at a languid pace, propelled by Jackson’s powerful and unique singing voice. With a career spanning over 40 years, Jackson isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel here; he’s comfortable in his own sound and knows where his strengths lie. Thankfully, Fool puts them all on full display.

Wanderer (CD)

Cat Power

Wanderer , Cat Power’s tenth studio LP is seemingly gentle (if downbeat) on the surface. Beneath her velveteen voice and intimate lyrics, the album’s impact is emotionally devastating. But with Cat Power, isn’t that to be expected? In some ways, this is a return to her earlier more confessional work after a few stints in the realm of slightly glossed-up indie pop. Chan Marshall duets with Lana Del Rey on “Woman” and draws out the real life drama of Rihanna’s “Stay.” A true pearl of an album.

Outer Peace (CD)

Toro y Moi

Toro Y Moi’s Outer Peace is a lively, lushly-crafted sojourn into the smoother, more seductive side of main man Chaz Bundick. Guest artist Abra shines on the sultry, instantly addictive “Miss Me,” while Wet contributes to the chilled out, funkified atmosphere on “Monte Carlo.” Instupendo helps Bundick flex his pop production muscles on the languid, dreamy, (and auto-tuned) “50-50,” of one of Bundick’s favorite tracks on the LP. Outer Peace straddles the line between two worlds — indie electro (is chillwave still a thing?) and indie R&B — and the result is this perfectly harmonious marriage of sounds.

All Melody (CD)

Nils Frahm

Nils Frahm's All Melody is a masterpiece. Frahm’s piano skills continue to innovate, summoning deep emotions and yielding sublime harmonies. For this latest LP, he has deployed a veritable personal orchestra, with compositions also featuring synths, pipe organ, strings, brass, tympani, gongs, and bass marimba. All Melody is a rich tapestry that can be felt on every level: physically, intellectually, and emotionally it is pure pleasure.
