Beth Hart - Better Than Home CD


Price:  $14.99


Separating from producer Kevin Shirley for the first time in three records, Beth Hart chose to work with Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens for 2015's Better Than Home. A change in producers helped Hart change direction, letting her depart from the down-and-dirty blues belting she specialized in throughout her time with Shirley, reconnecting slightly to her singer/songwriter beginning while emphasizing deep soul roots.

Price:  $14.99


Calexico's follow-up to 2012's acclaimed Algiers, Edge of the Sun began with a songwriting retreat to the historic Mexico City borough of Coyoacán.

Dwight Yoakam - Second Hand Heart CD


Price:  $16.99


Second Hand Heart was self-produced by Yoakam, and reflects where he’s been, but even more so, where he’s going: “’In Another World’ guided the rest of the album,” says Yoakam. “It became its statement – about surviving and hope.”

   


Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside CD


Price:  $12.99


I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside begins with chipper organ chords and Earl Sweatshirt’s shadowed words: “I’m like quicksand in my ways.” Like that, he’s off. His girlfriend says pot’s taking the soul from him, the clique nature of Odd Future exhausts him, the press is pounding at his door for a feature. Earl is overwhelmed. Toasting an empty room with a glass of white wine and Colt 45, he’s slumped on the couch, missing his grandmother, missing his friends, and missing what it’s like to actually care. Odd Future may be a notoriously rambunctious crew, but Earl is struggling to stand up on his own.

The third instalment of Frank Turner's self-compiled collection of material that does not feature on his studio albums over the last 3 years.

This is a unique document of one of Britian's rare talents.

   


Hank Williams III - Take As Needed For Pain CD


Price:  $10.99


Take as Needed for Pain is the fourth Hank III album Curb (or their alias Bruc Records) has put out since the restless Mr. Williams moved on after a volatile relationship between himself and the label, and like the earlier LPs, this was stitched together like Frankenstein's monster from session outtakes and tracks Hank III cut for various tribute albums.

   


Reba McEntire - Love Somebody CD


Price:  $10.99


Love Somebody is Reba McEntire's best album of the 21st century because it draws on her strengths: That is, subtly and powerfully interpreting substantial story songs about adult relationships set to contemporary country music. At 60, the performer — she bills herself by her first name these days — remains a remarkable vocalist, capable of stunning ferocity and dramatic nuance. She's one of the great traditional country singers of her time, but she prefers pushing herself to stay current. Always ambitious, she errs only when she tries to appeal to radio with material that's too lightweight for her talent and maturity.
