Brothers Of A Feather: Live At The Roxy (CD)

Rich Robinson

Originally released in 2007, Chris & Rich Robinson’s Brothers of a Feather: Live at the Roxy sounds as poignant and stirring as ever. This stellar reissue features sound so crisp you’d swear the guys were in the same room as you — well, actually, considering this is a compilation of 2006 era live shows at LA’s The Roxy, it probably actually sounds even clearer. It’s a minimalist affair, focused on the warm vibrato of guitar strings, the homespun interplay of the Robinsons’ voices, and the soulful delivery of backing vocalists Mona Lisa Young and Charity White. Featuring classic Black Crowes tracks as well as moving covers of Gene Clark, Little Feat, and Bob Dylan covers, if you weren’t one already, Brothers of a Feather will certainly make you a believer.

Guardians (CD)

August Burns Red

Metalcore veterans August Burns Red surpass their signature heavy sound on Guardians , delivering their most pummeling songs to date. Despite the punishing blaze of multi-dimensional riffs, this album presents a more mature and refined band, playing the heartfelt, collaborative songs that only a band of 17 years could write.

Daylight (CD)

Grace Potter

Singer/songwriter Grace Potter finds herself in a different space these days. After the breakup of her band The Nocturnals as well as her prior marriage left her shaken to her core, she signed off making music completely; Daylight is the result of a total emotional reboot, with Potter writing some of the most confessional songs thus far. From the gospel-tinged opening track "Love Is Love" to piano-backed powerhouse "Release," Potter's vocal prowess comes through crystal clear, displaying both vulnerability and a newfound strength in this next stage of her career.

Dogrel (CD)

Fontaines D.C.

The post-punk rock band from Dublin, Ireland, Fontaines D.C., has unleashed a post-punk tour-de-force with their debut album, Dogrel . On the short and punchy opening track, "Big," frontman Grian sings "My childhood was small, but I'm gonna be big," and that, they certainly will be.

Our Pathetic Age (CD)

DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow’s new double album Our Pathetic Age is urgent, pleasurably menacing, and smart. The first half is instrumental and the second half features Nas, Run The Jewels, Sam Herring of Future Islands, Paul Banks of Interpol, and more. The atmosphere is generally dystopian, with moments of light accentuating the shadows, and glimpses of beauty peeking through the intensity of Shadow’s subject matter. Raekwon, Dave East, Pusha T, and Pharoahe Monch provide intelligent flows with unsettling lyrics as Shadow sets the vibe through moody synths and seamless sampling. If it sounds like a downer, worry not. Our Pathetic Age is perfectly suited for, well, our tumultuous age, in all its simultaneous fear and hope.

Grandpa Metal (CD)

Brian Posehn

Sick of the self-serious wrath, destruction, and pillaging of contemporary metal? Then Brian Posehn has the comedy/metal album for you! Meet Grandpa Metal , the comic’s light-hearted, hard-rocking new metal album that spends equal time skewering and celebrating metal genres and tropes such as Viking metal, ‘80s party metal, black metal, the dark lord Satan, and totally-over-it, crusty elder scenesters. (Hence the album’s title.) Obviously, the whole thing’s in good fun…but it’s also just straight up good. And how could it not be with the all-star collaborators Posehn recruited for the thing? Expect raucous, ultra raw contributions from members of Steel Panther, Amon Amarth, Slayer, Soundgarden, Fall Out Boy, Slipknot, Exodus, Testament, Huntress, Anthrax, and Dethklok. Also along for the ride: the inimitable Weird Al. Prepare for loads of wild originals, plus covers of A-Ha’s “Take on Me” and Ylvis’ “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say).”

Velvet: Side A (CD)

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert’s fourth EP is a prequel to his full-length album, Velvet , and features six retro ‘70’s funk and rock-flavored nuggets, marking quite a departure for the season 8 American Idol star. Yet, the guitar-driven sound is accentuated by his distinct, incredible voice that his fans have come to love.

Pictures From Life's Other Side: The Man & His Music In Rare Recordings & Photos [Box Set] (CD)

Hank Williams

Pictures From Life's Other Sid e is a true hybrid project consisting of six CDs of live in-studio performances known as the “Mother’s Best” radio shows, newly restored and remastered, along with the first-ever large format hardbound photo book dedicated to the life and career of the country music icon. The 272-page book was carefully curated by leading music historian and Hank biographer Colin Escott and features 200+ images of Hank, including dozens of rare and unseen photos.

The Movement Revisited (CD)

Christian McBride

McBride’s stunning masterpiece about “the struggle” is now a 20 year-long continuously evolving project that combines elements of jazz, gospel, big band, swing, symphony, theater and dramatic spoken word in a clear-eyed, yet optimistic, look at where our society has come from and where it is hopefully headed.   In 1998, a musical commission from the Portland (Maine) Arts Society set in motion what would eventually become a major part of his life’s work. Written for just a quartet and gospel choir, that original version of The Movement Revisited gave only a hint of what the piece would eventually become. In 2008, the L.A. Philharmonic asked if he would like to recreate it on a larger scale for their upcoming season. The Movement Revisited grew into a sweeping four-part suite for big jazz band, small jazz group, gospel choir, and four narrators who convey the pain and pathos, euphoria, joy, and ultimately hope of the struggle through the words and writings of four iconic Americans: the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, and Muhammad Ali.   For this recording of The Movement Revisited , McBride chose poet and artist Sonia Sanchez for the voice of Rosa Parks, actor Wendell Pierce ( The Wire , Treme ) for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., actor Vondie Curtis-Hall ( Chicago Hope , Daredevil ) as Malcolm X, and Dion Graham ( Malcolm X, The Wir e) as Muhammad Ali.

Flight (CD)

Hanni El Khatib

Creating samples and beats with producer Leon Michels from scratch, Hanni El Khatib has created a rollicking sampledelic opus with Flight that recalls the beautiful chaos that the Dust Brothers created on Paul’s Boutique and Odelay . It's filtered through the singular lo-fi style that El Khatib has developed over the previous ten years, but it's also like if Dilla and Madlib had come up on The Cramps. Because El Khatib wasn’t concerned with the need to perform the songs live, it unlocked a new level in composition. So rather than blistering guitar attacks, you might hear two drum samples, a live flute, and a weird tape loop that could never be played live. It’s a record both dense and intricate yet direct and spontaneous. It is garage rock, it is hip-hop, it is soul, it is blues, it is psychedelic, but more than anything, it’s a brilliant Hanni El Khatib record.

MAGDALENE (CD)

FKA twigs

MAGDALENE is a triumph for FKA Twigs. It’s her most expansive, cinematic work yet, featuring lush strings, church choirs, and poignant soundscapes. It may also be her most vulnerable, with FKA facing up to heartbreak on the sweeping, grand scale such an intense experience requires. If FKA Twig’s work before this made you stop in your tracks, MAGDALENE is guaranteed to be the album that pulls the rug out from under you. Gorgeous, raw, and deeply resonant.

Brothers Of A Feather: Live At The Roxy (CD)

Chris Robinson

Originally released in 2007, Chris & Rich Robinson’s Brothers of a Feather: Live at the Roxy sounds as poignant and stirring as ever. This stellar reissue features sound so crisp you’d swear the guys were in the same room as you — well, actually, considering this is a compilation of 2006 era live shows at LA’s The Roxy, it probably actually sounds even clearer.
