Bronx VI (CD)

The Bronx

The Bronx comes rip-roaring back onto centerstage with Bronx VI . The band sounds as unstoppable as ever, their sound evolving with every rough-and-tumble release since their inception back in 2003, while still maintaining those key sonic ingredients that keep punk rockers and heavy metal headbangers enamored in equal numbers. It’s a non-stop assault of heavy riffs and ferocious drumming for most of the album, with “Mexican Summer” lightly nodding to The Bronx’s other incarnation as Mariachi El Bronx and album closer “Participation Trophy” drinking deep from the well of existential dread. Smart, disconcerting, and made to be turned up loud, Bronx VI is the perfect antidote to 2021’s cloud of perpetual angst.

Under The Weather (CD)


It's a testament to the power of HOMESHAKE's songwriting skills that his latest album, Under the Weather , derives such magnetic beauty from the pain that inspired it. At the time of the album's conception, musician and singer-songwriter Peter Sagar was dealing with a deep depression, channeling his emotions into this heartfelt, hazy collection of songs. That undercurrent of sadness connects immediately with the listener; yet, in spite of the album's melancholy subtext, there's a fragile loveliness, even a dreaminess to the tracks. Maybe that's transcendence. Sagar is certainly able to find the grace hidden inside the darkness, which makes Under the Weather a perfect companion for our strange days.

Welcome 2 America (CD)


Recorded in the spring of 2010 and then mysteriously abandoned by Prince before its release, Welcome 2 America is a blast from the past that sounds unbelievably prescient. The tracks come from a series of semi-improvised sessions Prince did at Paisley Park; the melodies have a strong funk and jazz influence while the lyrics dissect consumerist society and the influence of corporations and big tech. The tracks are smart and searing, danceable and polished. Fans will find lots to love here. Welcome 2 America is a welcome new discovery in Prince’s catalog and one that invites another look at his latter years’ discography.

Does Hound Dog Taylor: Try It...You Might Like It! (CD)


Has there ever been an album title more spot on than GA-20 Does Hound Dog Taylor: Try It…You Might Like It ? Fans of fuzzed out blues, garage rock, and pure rock ’n’ roll are sure to dig this rowdy, floor-stompin’ ten song collection of tracks by the legendary six-fingered Chicago bluesman “Hound Dog” Taylor covered by modern electric blues purveyors GA-20. Propulsive, blistering, and gritty as hell, the songs make being done wrong and feeling down-and-out sound like the most rock ’n’ roll experiences of all time. Although this is sure to be many folks’ introduction to the brilliance of Hound Dog Taylor, GA-20 builds on the spirit of the blues icon in a way that’s guaranteed to perk up the ears of longtime fans as well.

Romantic Images (CD)

Molly Burch

Molly Burch’s Romantic Images is a strong contender for the feel good indie pop record of the summer. Heck, maybe even the year. The album is a sonic evolution for Burch, who moves away from familiar themes of anxiety and heartbreak and towards new sonic sensations of confidence and celebration. It’s also her first effort where Burch places production capabilities into the hands of others; in this case, the wonderfully suitable duo Tennis. The result is a smart, upbeat, insanely catchy collection of songs, each seemingly better than the last. Ideal for indie fans who can get down with the shadows but are ready for a bolder, more danceable listening experience.

Native Sons (CD)

Los Lobos

Los Lobos’ new album, Native Sons , is a tip of the hat to their fellow Los Angeles-area artists. The legendary East LA rockers bring their signature blend of Tex-Mex, zydeco, country, folk, blues, R&B, cumbia, bolero, norteno, and brown-eyed soul to the tracks, finding new dimensions to old favorites and giving some songs a completely new twist. Los Lobos takes on Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, the Blasters, Little Feat, Jackson Browne, and WAR on this surprising, toe-tapping album. Native Sons is eclectic yet cohesive, as varied and inspiring as Los Angeles itself.

Screen Violence (CD)


Chvrches embrace the darkness on their latest, Screen Violence . The band continues to craft buoyant, perfectly polished synth pop gems; this time around, they're bringing more melancholy into their always glamorous mix, even recruiting The Cure's Robert Smith for a duet on "How Not to Drown." It's one of the highlights of the album, with Smith's lush, velvety voice contrasting nicely with Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry's candy sweet vocals. The other tracks are equally promising, with the band continuing to evolve their song through lyrical explorations of loneliness and fear. Screen Violence might just be the perfect indie pop album for the grand highs and lows of 2021.

Private Space (CD)

Durand Jones & The Indications

Private Space , the third album from Durand Jones & the Indications is a solidly-crafted, life-affirming celebration. The band’s vivacious soul/funk sound dives into some unexpected territory, with disco beats and synth atmospherics adding lush layers to the tracks. Written and recorded after the band spent most of last year apart, Private Space possesses a jubilance and resilience in its DNA, a fitting soundtrack for coming back together and back to something approaching normal life. It’s impossible to be unhappy with this album on so turn it up loud and take a turn on the dance floor, whether you’re in the middle of a party or in your own living room.

How Long Do You Think It's Gonna Last? (CD)

Big Red Machine

Aaron Dessner (The National) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) return for their second outing as Big Red Machine, the excellent How Long Do You Think It's Gonna Last? It’s a star-studded foray into the Americana meets indie territory the artists do so well, with Dessner and Vernon sharing vocal duties with collaborators like Fleet Foxes, Anais Mitchell, Lisa Hannigan, Sharon Van Etten, Shara Nova and Taylor Swift. Steeped in emotion and richly atmospheric, this is a supergroup album that doesn’t skate by simply on name recognition. Every artist involved gives it their all, whether they’re going for the moodier folk stylings of Fleet Foxes and Anais Mitchell’s “Phoenix” or the poppy authenticity of Taylor Swift’s “Renegade.” This is an album where you can tell the cast of musicians truly vibes together and is excited about what they’re creating. Listeners are all the richer for it.

God Is Partying (CD)

Andrew W.K.

Andrew W.K. is at his ultra-intense, party-fueled best on his epic new album, God Is Partying . It's a non-stop thrill ride with terrain ranging from the heavy, ominous "Babalon" to the melodic, feel-good "I'm in Heaven," to the scorching, future classic "Everybody Sins." Proving once again that he's a mastermind in elements beyond party time, W.K. also performs every single instrument on the album. When you're as full-on as Andrew W.K., of course, you don't stop there; he also co-produced the album alongside Grammy Award-winning engineer, Ted Young (Sonic Youth, The Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper). Raw, raucous, and pure rock 'n' roll, God Is Partying will slake your thirst for new party anthems.

Influences (CD)


Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene has released a solo album as K.D.A.P. (Kevin Drew a Picture), entitled Influences . The title reflects the fact that Drew reached back to his early electronic and ambient music interests for this intriguing, instrumental set. “The Slinfold Loop” is lovely and minimalist while “Dooms Dive” brings in a bit of a post-punk feel with its busy rhythms. The album has a joyously experimental vibe that is frequently uplifting, as on the freewheeling synth track, “Explosive Lip Balm.”

Smithsonian Anthology Of Hip-Hop & Rap [Box Set] (CD)

Various Artists

Smithsonian Folkways Recordings chronicles the rise of the hip-hop/rap scene, in their comprehensive new 129-track Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop & Rap . Curated by artists Chuck D, MC Lyte, Questlove, and 9th Wonder with writers Jeff Chang and Mark Anthony Neal and early Def Jam execs Bill Adler and Bill Stephney, the Anthology covers the genre from its genesis to its current stadium-packing success. Chronicling the diversity of the genre is obviously an immense task and the Folkways crew has assembled some of the biggest highlights of hip-hop history from RUN-DMC to Roxanne Shanté and DMX to Drake. The collection includes a 300-page book featuring essays from some of the genre's leading lights, hundreds of photographs, and hip-hop-related items on display in the National Museum of African American History and Culture galleries, with original design by Def Jam Recordings's founding creative director, Cey Adams.
