Hurray For The Riff Raff The Navigator
A powerful, radical recording, fueled by the songs of Puerto-Rican born Alynda Segarra. Hers is a past that informs the present instead of the present preserving the past. Pa'lante
In Alphabetical Order:
Aimee Mann | Mental Illness
Warmth & hooks for the delicate bruiser set.
Bash & Pop | Anything Could Happen
Songs & melodies that are every bit as good as anything Westerberg wrote post-Replacements.
Chicano Batman | Freedom is Free
Strange, intoxicating, groovy, slow-jam soul, peppered with hints of psychedelia.
Chuck Prophet | Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins
Never ceasing to amaze at his consistent level of songwriting, long players & Rock n Roll chops.
Dan Baird | Solow
Easily his best solo record. (no pun intended) Classic rock n roll, twang, good lyrics, and hooks galore. In a just world, ‘She’s With Me’ would have been all over the radio in Summer time.
El Goodo | By Order of The Moose
They’re happy to refer to themselves as a “60’s psychedelia revival band” which is quite refreshing as that’s exactly what they are.
Gold Star | Big Blue
Soulful, country, crooning, all without a hint of manufactured conviction in sight.
JD McPherson | Undivided Heart & Soul
JD’s brand of retro Americana sounds more cross-pollinated than ever, still grabbing you by the throat demanding your attention.
Jim White | Waffles, Triangles & Jesus
JW continues his journey (Drift Away) of the weird (Playing Guitars) & wonderful (Sweet Bird of Memory) taking time to hook you in and listen.
Joe Henry | Thrum
While not quite as good as previous efforts, it plays with a heavy handed vibe of a drop-D acoustic & a thick bass & drum sound that reels you in and keeps you locked with excellent songwriting.
Kacy & Clayton | The Siren’s Song
Very talented, millennial acoustic folk duo, featuring Kacy's voice, great harmonies, good songs & Clayton’s deft fingerpicking.
Marty Stuart | Way Out West
Bakersfield twang, surf rock & Byrdsian jangle; indicative of the mythic west.
Nicole Atkins | Goodnight, Rhonda Lee
Atkins has delivered her finest to date; a blue-eyed pop-country-soul record.
Phoebe Bridgers | Stranger in The Alps
‘Smoke Signals’ – just, listen.
Pugwash | Silverlake
Thomas Walsh has chosen wisely enlisting Jason Falkner to record/play all the instruments on his new record. Conversely, without TW's lovely songs, you have no record.
Son Volt | Notes of Blue
Grounded in the heritage of Appalachia & the mysterious ‘guitar stylings’ of the bluesmen of the Mississippi Delta.
Spoon | Hot Thoughts
Top tier record from the most consistent band in the game.
The Len Price 3 | Kentish Longtails
British garage-rock trio hitting on all cylinders. See The Who/Kinks/Jam related artists.
The Sadies | Northern Passages
Canadian foursome featuring the Good Brothers who routinely squeeze new life from classic country, psychedelic folk-rock, Nuggets garage & surf/rockabilly.
Dion | The Lost ’65 Sessions - Kickin’ Child
The Move | Magnetic Waves of Sound
