The Pleiades are an open star cluster in the constellation Taurus. One of the nearest such clusters to Earth, the Seven Sisters (as they're also known) comprise middle-aged, hot B-type stars which can be viewed by Earthlings in the night sky without a telescope. The nine brightest stars of the cluster are named for the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology and their parents.

Frankie Paul was often referred to as Jamaica's Stevie Wonder, and not just because of his visual impairment; like Wonder, he was a talented multi-instrumentalist with a tremendous vocal range. He was also extraordinarily prolific; part of the first wave of dancehall artists, he started his recording career in earnest during the early '80s, and subsequently flooded the market with product, releasing countless singles and well over 30 albums. That made his career difficult to track for all but the most ardent fans, but it also ensured that he was never too far out of the spotlight on a constantly changing reggae scene.

Style: Punk Rock, Alternative Rock | Label: Subway Records

One of the most notorious Australian pub rock bands, Cosmic Psychos play beer-fueled, garage-accented, heavy-hitting punk rock with no frills and no pretensions. Officially beginning their journey together in 1985, the Psychos gained a reputation for not caring about money so much as the free beer, laughs, and occasional overseas traveling involved with being in a rock band. Despite their lack of careerism, over the course of a career that's spanned four decades, the group released over a dozen albums, sang with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, befriended Mudhoney, and supplied beer to the then-underage Silverchair at Australia's Big Day Out festival.

That same year, the two song Black Magic/Kaleidoscope Hearts single was released on London indie Ark Recordings. The band eventually struck a deal in the U.S. with California label Bright Antenna who released their Magic Love & Dreams EP in 2009.

With vocalist Don Dokken's captivating stage presence and guitarist George Lynch's high-energy style, the band combined rockers such as "Kiss of Death" and power ballads such as "Alone Again" in order to create a number of best-selling albums.

In her more meditative moments, folky Swedish singer/songwriter Anna Ternheim seems to conjure up the shadow of fellow Swede Sophie Zelmani; at other times, her poignant, urgent, piano-driven songs nod to artists like Coldplay and, to a certain extent, Dido. It was probably thanks to this well-read sound, not to mention the fact that she recorded her songs in English, that Ternheim went on to earn critical acclaim on an international scale following the release of her sophomore LP.

Style: Progressive Rock, Stoner Rock | Label: Mighty Music

Black Book Lodge is a quartet based in Copenhagen, Denmark. They are not easily labeled in regards to a specific genre, as they work within a lot of different styles and somehow manage to merge these different inputs into a powerful, melodic, organic, and original whole. One way to define them though, would be as being inherently nordic, as their music does invoke an imagery of vast, barren landscapes and white, towering mountains, or as MetalSucks.net puts it: 'If Mastodon and Muse had a baby in Denmark and never taught it how to run, that baby would be Black Book Lodge.' In regards to the general direction on the new album, Ronny elaborates 'I felt it was time to gather rather than alienate the listener this time around.

Blanket, as the name suggests, envelop the listener in a comforting quilt of sound, transporting them to dreamy landscapes of sweeping, celestial beauty with a kaleidoscopic symphony of soaring guitars, tinkling piano, warm bass and propulsive drums. How To Let Go, the quartet’s debut full-length album, takes dexterous ambient textures and amplifies them through a deeply resonant, emotional filter. The album is designed to uplift, enchant and provide a beautiforous escape from an often harsh and confounding reality, which can now be experienced on CD.

Cody Critcheloe has been vying for cult status ever since he founded multimedia alt-pop group Ssion in the early 2000s. With his early releases, the musician, filmmaker, and visual artist constructed a persona that incorporates a near-religious obsession with ’80s and ’90s rock and pop divas; a uniform of leather jackets, red lipstick, and a painted-on handlebar mustache; and an almost academic approach to dissecting and reconstructing queer culture into clever dance songs. Ssion’s third studio record, O, slickly sums up the many parts of Critcheloe’s career. It not only epitomizes his persona, but contains his best music to date.

Although all members originally hail from Hawaii, the reggae-rock group Iration launched their career in Isla Vista, California, a college town near Santa Barbara. With their laid-back sound and pop melodies, the band was an instant hit on the California college circuit. In 2006, their growing fan base got a chance to bring a little Iration back to the dorm when the band released its New Roots EP. The next year saw them release their debut album, No Time for Rest, which featured a guest shot from reggae legend Mikey Dread. A tour with Pepper followed in 2008 along with the EP Sample This. Touring kept the band busy until 2010 when the album Time Bomb arrived. They revisited the EP format a year later with Fresh Grounds, while their 2015 release Hotting Up topped Billboard's Reggae Albums chart. A year later, they topped Billboard's Reggae Albums chart again with Double Up, an acoustic album featuring reworkings of past hits. The single "Fly with Me" appeared in 2017.

Style: Reggae | Label: Secret Records

One of the first vocalists to enter the Jamaican music business, Alton Ellis was generally revered as the greatest and most soulful singer the country ever produced – that is, until Bob Marley came along. Ellis had his first hit during the ska craze, but made his true lasting mark as the definitive solo singer of the rocksteady era. Sweet, smooth, and deeply emotive, Ellis was equally at home on Jamaican originals or reggae-fied covers of American R&B hits. He cut a series of ska singles for Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One label, but reached his prime during the mid- to late '60s, when he recorded some of rocksteady's signature tunes for Duke Reid's Treasure Isle imprint.
