Spice Boys :: Glade

More from this wave of reverb-drenched noisy Swedish psychedelia that we’re enjoying lately.

Shame :: Songs of Praise

Aggressive debut from this UK band features some highly dynamic songs loaded with twisty hooks.

Chris Thile :: Thanks for Listening

Thile (THEE-lee) is a world-class mandolinist who also happens to have replaced Garrison Keillor as the host of that Wobegon show. Subtle and introspective.

Walt Wagner :: Reworks

An interesting set of covers for solo piano, performed live

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings :: Soul of a Woman

Posthumous release from one of the strongest voices in modern soul.

Mr. Lif & Brass Menazeri :: Resilient

Cross-cultural collaboration mixes up a Balkan frenzy with dope beats and MC’ing

Liima :: 1982

The title and a first listen make you think this is a retro thing, but it is more of a weird synthesis from a group of Scandinavian musicians.

The Pack AD :: Dollhouse

Another stunning set of songs from these Vancouverites, full of fuzz and dynamics.
