Arctic Monkeys Live At The Royal Albert Hall (CD)

Arctic Monkeys

Back in 2018, Arctic Monkeys performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London and admirably donated the proceeds to War Child, which supports children in conflict areas. Now the audio recording of that concert is available as a double album, also in support of the foundation, featuring a fun setlist that includes tracks from each of their six studio albums. The evolution over the years of this beloved British band's sound is encapsulated here with full rock-star energy, making this a must-have for fans, especially those that haven't made it to a show.

The Collection [Box Set] (CD)

Amy Winehouse

For the late Amy Winehouse's considerable fanbase, this new box set includes her two studio albums Frank and Back To Black as well as Lioness , her 2011 rarities album. Also featured for the first time is the full audio release from her 2007 I Told You I Was Trouble: Live in London DVD -- probably her last best performance -- and fifteen remixes from artists like Hot Chip and Jay-Z, the highlight of which may be Mylo's upbeat, fuzzy version of Winehouse's salty "F*** Me Pumps" from Frank. Also excellent is The Rumble Strips' sped-up, livelier remix of "Back To Black."

Acceptance (CD)

Billy Childs

Award-winning pianist and composer Billy Childs is joined by saxophonist Steve Wilson, bassist Hans Glawischnig, and drummer Eric Harland on his new album, Acceptance . Childs draws on his eclectic musical influences for these compositions, from the stirring samba "Dori," inspired by Brazil's Dori Caymmi, to the funky "Leimert Park," which acknowledges the vibrant music scene in that L.A. neighborhood. Elsewhere there is the soothing, introspective title track, the brooding "Oceana" and Childs' take on Gershwin's standard, "It Never Entered My Mind."

As Long As You Are (CD)

Future Islands

As Long As You Are , Future Island’s brand of New Wave Synth-Pop is as euphoric and uninhibitedly joyful as anything the band has done in their 14-year career. Full of bright melodies and heavenly choruses, the album looks to the past as well as the future, confronting old ghosts and embracing new hope. It’s an album about trust, honesty, redemption, and release, and also about allowing old wounds to heal and bringing painful chapters to a close.

Punisher (CD)

Phoebe Bridgers

Phoebe Bridgers' intelligent, wry indie folk continues to evolve as she refines her sound on the album Punisher . Her recent side projects like Better Oblivion Community Center have not deflected her love for introspective and haunting songs -- some call it emo-folk -- like the title track. "Kyoto" is the one exception to the consistent bedroom pop atmosphere on Punisher , especially when it soars into a tangible chorus with horns and steady drums.

To Bring You My Love (LP)

PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey's acclaimed third album To Bring You My Love has hit its 25th anniversary this year, prompting not just a reissue but also an intriguing separate release of demos from the record. Originally released in February 1995, To Bring You My Love features the singles "Down By The Water," "C'mon Billy," and "Send His Love To Me." The reissue is faithful to the original recording and package, cutting by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering under the guidance of longtime PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish.

The White Stripes Greatest Hits (CD)

The White Stripes

Here's an unexpected gift from The White Stripes, the quirky duo that shook up the world of alternative rock back in 1997, and introduced us all to the prolific Jack White -- a greatest hits album. The "siblings" behind that scrappy hit "Fell in Love With a Girl" went on to win four Grammys and go platinum with 2001's White Blood Cells . The Greatest Hits double album is an appropriately non-obvious set that goes beyond the standard collection of singles, including lesser known tracks like "The Nurse" from Get Behind Me Satan . But the album does wrap up with the anthemic "Seven Nation Army" and kicks off with their very first single, "Let's Shake Hands," just like at their concerts.

Tea For The Tillerman [Deluxe Edition] (CD)

Cat Stevens

It's the 50th anniversary of Yusuf/Cat Stevens' Tea For The Tillerman from 1970, which he reimagined this year with his son. The original classic with its beloved singles like "Wild World" and "Where Do The Children Play?" has been remastered for this anniversary edition and paired with a disc of demos and live tracks from The Troubadour and KCET Studios in L.A. as well as BBC Radio. The second disc also features the previously unreleased track "Can This Be Love?" -- another reminder of Stevens' clear-eyed romantic songwriting.

Southern Symphony (CD)

Russell Dickerson

Pop-country's Russell Dickerson delivers his sophomore release, Southern Symphony , complete with a guest appearance from Florida Georgia Line on the rollickin' party single, "It's About Time." Dickerson unabashedly embraces the standard themes of cold beers and women in his smooth, twangy voice, especially on the solid, singalong-friendly track, "Never Get Old." But there's always room for a goodhearted ballad with a little boyband flair, and "Love You Like I Used To" doesn't disappoint.

Point The Flashlight And Walk (CD)

Told Slant

Felix Walworth's first album as Told Slant since 2016, Point The Flashlight And Walk embraces a sparkling sense of mournfulness with mostly deep vocals and airy, ambient/folk arrangements. "Bullfrog Choirs" is softly uplifting despite the sad refrain "I am always alone," floating off into busy percussion and electronic sounds in its outro. "No Backpack" has a lovely melody and swells like a synth-pop tune. Album opener "Meet You In The City" is another highlight with its lightly plodding rhythm and soothing vocals.

Making A Door Less Open (CD)

Car Seat Headrest

The first new material from Car Seat Headrest since Teens of Denial in 2016, Making a Door Less Open was recorded with the concept of individual singles in mind, giving the anticipated album a varied, eclectic sound. "Martin" may be a jangly indie rock tune with a soaring chorus, but "Can't Cool Me Down" sparkles with programmed bits and bobs, and "Weightlessness" has a quirky magic to it with its stuttering, pulsing rhythms. Posing as the masked character "Trait," Will Toledo uses electronic elements from his 1 Trait Danger side project to excellent effect on these well-constructed songs. There are shades of Spoon and Okkervil River sprinkled throughout as well as a little Peter Gabriel.

Be Water (CD)

Christian Sands

Jazz pianist Christian Sands' sixth studio album Be Water takes its title from a Bruce Lee quote and reflects that same quiet intensity projected by the martial arts legend. Alongside his regular players, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, guitarist Marvin Sewell, and drummer Clarence Penn, Sands conjures intricate and soulful atmospheres. The two parts of the title track, which include audio of Lee's quote, offer stirring swells on the one hand and lush chamber music on the other, speaking to Sands' diverse talents. A lovely highlight, "Still" features the hypnotic sounds of oars rowing through water.
