Past Tense: The Best Of Sparks (LP)


For the past fifty(!) years, Sparks have been hard to pigeonhole as solely a "rock band." Shape-shifting over the course of their career into whatever genre struck their fancy (glam, disco, new wave, classical, etc) brothers Ron and Russell Mael have somehow made it all work, as displayed on their latest career spanning compilation Past Tense . Selected by the Maels themselves and presented in a few different iterations, Past Tense makes for a great overview of what has made the band consistently good in their own special satirical way.

Monster [25th Anniversary Expanded Edition] (CD)


R.E.M.'s acclaimed ninth album Monster has been newly remastered and reissued for its 25th anniversary! This expanded 2CD version includes a bonus disc with a special 2019 remix from Monster producer Scott Litt.   When Monster was originally released, the band was at a crossroads in their career. It had been six years since R.E.M. had toured and their previous two albums were full of ballads, acoustic rock songs, and intricate arrangements. They were also grappling with the celebrity that came from being one of the biggest, most recognizable bands in the world. The result was Monster , an album unlike anything they had released before. Journalist Matthew Perpetua writes in the liner notes that R.E.M. “never been this distorted and dirty, or this glam or this flirty.”

Becoming Peter Ivers (CD)

Peter Ivers

Peter Ivers was one of those artists who was truly ahead of his time. Skirting genres and flouting songwriting conventions, the late Ivers crafted his own alchemical blend of glam, punk, and indie that was too bonkers for mainstream tastemakers. However, today’s fans of iconoclastic, outsider artists should find Becoming Peter Ivers is a treat. It’s a goofy, dreamy collection of songs spanning his unjustly forgotten musical career that’s guaranteed to drum up cult interest. Fun fact/selling point: Peter Ivers wrote the creepy, compelling song sung by the Lady in the Radiator in David Lynch’s Eraserhead .

One Of The Best Yet (CD)

Gang Starr

When Keith Elam, better known as Guru, passed away from complications due to cancer in 2010, the world figured the chances of a new album from beloved hip hop duo Gang Starr left with him. Fast forward to now, and there is a reason to celebrate: One Of The Best Yet , a posthumous album put together by DJ Premier utilizing some verses recorded by Guru after the duo disbanded in 2003. The end result is as close as possible to what might have been released if Guru was still around, with the added bonus of a stellar mix of guest collaborators (Jeru The Damaja, J. Cole, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli). A perfect gift for the classic hip hop fan.

Mad Lad: A Live Tribute To Chuck Berry (CD)

Ronnie Wood

The first in a proposed trilogy of albums honoring artists that are his "musical heroes," Ronnie Wood releases Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry . Recorded in 2018, Mad Lad is comprised of songs made famous by Mr. Berry in addition to one he covered as a b-side (Maceo Merriweather's "Worried Life Blues"). Not only does the album include a tribute tune written by Wood, he also painted the image that adorns its cover...a true labor of love to the artist and guitar pioneer.

New Age Norms 1 (CD)

Cold War Kids

The once bluesy indie-rock band Cold War Kids embrace their current slick soul sound with strong pop sensibilities and songwriting on New Age Norms 1 , the first in a trilogy of 8-song albums. Unabashedly assessible, tracks like “Complainer” offer funk of the Jason Mraz type, while “Beyond The Pale” is a ballad that would fit right into a set by Noah Gundersen or Dermot Kennedy. “Waiting For Your Love” is a feel-good, slinky number that is perhaps the strongest representation of this evolving group's sound, with Nathan Willett's vocals just as charismatic and interesting as ever.

Campus Concert (CD)

Erroll Garner

The sixth release in a year long reissue series dedicated to jazz pianist Erroll Garner, Campus Concert was recorded primarily at Perdue University in 1962. The recording not only functions as a historical document of when jazz music held a desirable sway over college students, but as a prime example of the joy that Garner instilled in his playing and performing, be it a popular standard or an original composition. This reissue (as well as others in the series) not only presents the performances in pristine remastered sound, but also includes unedited takes (including Garner's trademark guttural vocal sounds) as well as previously unreleased tracks.

Altogether (CD)


There’s a fullness, a cohesiveness to Turnover’s Altogether that feels rare in today’s indie landscape. According to the band, this new collection of songs is their first to be actively informed by their pop sensibilities — and boy, does it work. Rife with Britpop, punk, new romantic, and indie energy, these tracks sound like forgotten classics from the age of clever yet emotionally-appealing groups like Pet Shop Boys or The Smiths. Altogether is infectious and easy-to-love with an emotional impact that’ll make you pause, at times, to catch your breath.

True Love: A Celebration Of Cole Porter (CD)

Harry Connick Jr.

Harry Connick, Jr breathes new life into popular Cole Porter compositions, including "Anything Goes" and "You Do Something To Me." True Love highlights Connick’s talents as pianist, singer, arranger, orchestrator, and conductor.

Ghosteen (CD)

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Ghosteen is a work of deep, somber, majestic beauty. It’s hard to find the words to review an album whose mournful, transcendent spirit is so much bigger and more primal than human language. The eminently talented Nick Cave uses his lyrics here, of course, to great effect, whispering meditations on great love and great loss, painting poetic images and recounting parables that get under the skin. Underneath it all, the music breaks and crests like the waves of some interior ocean, keening and anguished, hopeful and transcendent. Yet for all that, it’s not a hard listen; it’s simultaneously searching and comforting, an antidote of sorts for the plagues we all must face as part of the human condition.

Colorado (CD)

Neil Young

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have another future classic on their hands with Colorado . It has been seven years since the legends’ last outing together and Young has never sounded more prescient, persuasive, and (naturally) political. The tracks are gritty and sometimes grooved out, rife with anger and infused with warmth. Some legends flame out; Neil Young and Crazy Horse seem to burn even brighter on their latest. Colorado is essential listening.
