Local Valley (CD)

José González

José González's Local Valley feels, at once, familiar and timeless, fresh and unexpected. The Swedish singer-songwriter's warm, immersive vocals and distinctive, down-home guitar make the album feel like a long-time friend, one that you'll enjoy for many spins to come. The melodies are hypnotic and vulnerable ("El Invento," "Visions"), upbeat and joyful ("Head On," "Swing"). It's an eclectic listening experience that showcases Gonzalez at his inventive best. Psychedelia meets tropicalia meets folk-infused indie in one cohesive, cozy album.

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.

Under The Weather (CD)

HOMESHAKE

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.

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.

Going Going Gone (CD)

Mild High Club

Mild High Club’s Going Going Gone is a trip, and one you’ll be glad to take. Fusing elements of psychedelia with indie, AM Gold, and Brazilian music, it’s one of the most eclectic, exploratory albums of the year. As the songs shift through explorations of paranoia, faith, and societal decay, the melodies seem to grow more rousing, offbeat, and ebullient. Each tells its own story, with its own set of melodic rules and bouts of rule-breaking. Taken together, the songs on Going Going Gone create a world all their own, one that’s dazzling and exciting in spite of the band’s often very dark (if appropriate) thematic occupations.

Screen Violence (CD)

Chvrches

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.

The 3rd Album 'Sticker' (CD)

NCT 127

K-Pop fans, rejoice! NCT 127 have a new album, Sticker , that delivers plenty of super-slick, danceable pop tunes with hints of R&B and hip-hop. The third album from these young superstars is a return to Korean lyrics after their Japanese EP Loveholic  released in February. “Lemonade” does not disappoint as an in-your-face banger, while “Dreamer” is sunny and hooky with an infectious melody. The sweet and airy “Road Trip” shows off the group’s high, light vocals.

Welcome 2 America (CD)

Prince

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)

GA-20

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.

How The Garden Grows (CD)

YVETTE

YVETTE's How The Garden Grows is one of the most fascinating albums of the fall. The post-industrial/neo-no wave project of NYC duo Noah Kardos-Fein and Rick Daniel, YVETTE recorded the album in 2016 when the pair had a break from sharing stages with the likes of Lydia Lunch, Liars, Metz, and Thurston Moore, and is now—after a five-year delay—getting released via Western Vinyl. Once you hear the album, however, the long wait for this release is all just backstory. The music itself eclipses the tale, sounding jittery, urgent and ominous. In many ways, it's an ideal soundtrack for 2021, and well worth the wait.

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.

Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) (CD)

Bob Dylan

Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) is a treasure trove for Bob Dylan fans. The collection includes 54 previously unreleased outtakes, alternate takes, rehearsal recordings, live performances and other curios drawn from the period in which Dylan recorded the albums Shot Of Love, Infidels , and Empire Burlesque . As a chronology of an artistic journey, this latest entry in the Bootleg Series is top-notch; the alternate takes available here differ markedly from those released on earlier Series compilations, charting the creative paths Dylan chose to traverse and serving up intriguing new angles to previously heard tracks. The album is certainly a joy for completists, but it's not just for completists either. Dylan fans of all levels will find much to enjoy in these heartfelt, authentic, brilliant compositions.
