WEB FLAC (tracks) - 220 MB | Tracks: 11 | 38:34 min
Style: Folk, Blues, Alt-Country | Label: Honey Jar Records

The balance of darkness and light is at the heart of Kingdom In My Mind, The Wood Brothers seventh studio release and their most spontaneous and experimental collection yet. Recorded over a series of freewheeling, improvised sessions, the record is a reckoning with circumstance, mortality, and human nature, one that finds strength in accepting what lies beyond our control. Thoughtfully honing in on the bittersweet beauty that underlies our doubt and pain, the songs grapple with the power of our external surroundings to shape our internal worlds (and vice versa) through vivid character studies and unflinching self-examination.

It's country music but not as we know it which begs the question: have these Bad kids of 21st Century rock 'n' roll finally grown up on their ninth studio album? 'Sing In a World That's Falling Apart' continues to flick the middle finger to one and all. These are, after all, the same Black Lips who rescued the waning garage punk subgenre by not sounding or dressing their musical predecessors. They also dug contemporary hip-hop and punk and actualised themselves.

Oh, My Girl, the second album by singer/songwriter Jesse Sykes and her band the Sweet Hereafter – led by Phil Wandscher – picks up where her debut, Reckless Burning, left off. Songs are played at cough-syrup tempo, production is sparse, instrumentation equally so, offering just enough of a frame for the melody and lyrics to hang themselves on, and everything, absolutely everything, is underplayed. There is plenty of dynamic tension, but little to no dynamic range. Yes, this is a good thing. Sykes' ghostly voice, which hovers about her words more than inhabits them, has enough old-world folkiness, raw – if intentionally muted – willingness, and lonesome country pain in it to carry off these tunes with authority. Produced, mixed and engineered by multi-instrumentalist Tucker Martine, Oh, My Girl is full of slow, dipping passion, moody expressionism and poetic smarts to make it stand out in a sensual, narcotic way from the rest of the gothic alterna-twang pack. And one more thing: Sykes has more emotion in the grain of her halting, cracking voice than a whole army of Margo Timmins'es – so let the comparisons stop now, please.

The finest country songwriters understand that the best way to a big idea is often through a small detail. Consider the central gesture that dictates the action in Brandy Clark's beautiful song "I Cried," which appears on producer Dave Cobb's graceful compilation album Southern Family. Contemplating a grandfather's death and his wife's ensuing loneliness, Clark builds the song's chorus around the phrase, "I cried," her voice arching up into a tender, transcendent falsetto; in the next line, she takes the mood down again. "I tried to hold my head high, it ended up in my hands." That simple image so effectively captures the experience of living with grief: the attempt to show strength for others, for your own sanity, and the gradual, quiet, repetitive sag into vulnerability. Who hasn't experienced this moment at a funeral — or, as Clark describes, while simply talking on the phone with a fellow loved one left behind?

It's a safe bet to expect the unexpected in regards to any new Lambchop effort, but the cryptically titled (and beautifully packaged) What Another Man Spills is the band's most consistently surprising and deliriously eclectic outing to date, with new twists around every corner. While it's their loveliest record since How I Quit Smoking, that album's countrypolitan gauze is largely a thing of the past, replaced here by a dreamy, jazz-like patina which proves a remarkably versatile backdrop not only for Kurt Wagner's originals but for a vast range of covers, from Dump's "It's Not Alright" to Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love (Love Song)." The latter is easily the most jaw-dropping track on What Another Man Spills, with the group easily slipping into the song's soulful groove without a hint of irony, not even in Wagner's amazingly Prince-like falsetto; a later cover of the Frederick Knight smash "I've Been Lonely for So Long," while less surprising, is no less engaging, further solidifying Lambchop's growing debt to the Stax/Volt sound.

"[Moore] engages in a bait and switch: cloaking old-school values with new-school references. He is in no way a dissenter, merely someone who understands that old forms can stand even stronger with injections of new ideas […] Mr. Moore is solid in his convictions: that country music of the 1970s, the more accessible side of the outlaw years, is worth preserving, and that the true modern spirit of that sound is mindful of the rest of the world." Rolling StoneOff the Beaten Path is the third studio album by American country music artist Justin Moore. The album includes duets with Miranda Lambert and Charlie Daniels. The album includes the singles "Point at You", "Lettin' the Night Roll" and "This Kind of Town".

Songs that mark a time of honesty and courage in our culture, songs that celebrate strong women, and stand together as a call to action to continue to do the work of change.

Genre: Indie Rock, Alt-Country / Label: Rough Trade Records

Pinegrove’s new album begins with a breath and ends with a shimmering exhalation. In between is Marigold, an urgent, multivalent meditation—and an expanded take on the blend of alt-country, indie rock and cerebral humanism that’s inspired the band’s ardent fan community. Marigold marks their Rough Trade Records debut, offering what songwriter Evan Stephens Hall calls a “heart-first” perspective. Those familiar with Pinegrove will recognize signature elements of the band’s sound: literary yet conversational lyrics, geometrically interlocking guitars, the dynamic shifting shadows of rhythm and structure. But this effort marks the most spacious, bold, and well defined iteration of the project yet

Ronnie Dunn has had plenty of occasions to look back on his two-decade run of hits with Brooks & Dunn. The duo reunited for a flashy Vegas show, made an album revisiting their best-known numbers with a new generation of guests, and got inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. But Dunn wasn’t finished looking back: On Re-Dunn, he reinterprets 24 songs that preceded his early-’90s fame and reflect the listening habits and live repertoire from his formative years on the Texas and Oklahoma club circuits. “I wanted to put something down, almost selfishly, to define the music and songs that are involved with—I hate using this term because it sounds so heady and very un-country-singerish—my musical DNA,” he tells Apple Music.

Sarah Jane Scouten’s upbringing was a little unusual. Harmony singing was a more commonplace activity than watching television. As a result, Confessions is an album that plays to her gifts as a singer and her ability to find songs that bring out both the storytelling and her roots in discovering music in places like the Sacred Harping singing of Kentucky, and Louisiana two-stepping. Not bad for a girl raised in Bowen Island, British Columbia. Her songs and storytelling befit a woman who has been a three-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee.

James Charles Rodgers was an American singer-songwriter and musician who rose to popularity in the late 1920s. Widely regarded as "The Father of Country Music", he is best known for his distinctive rhythmic yodeling. Unusual for a music star, Rodgers rose to prominence based upon his recordings, among country music's earliest, rather than concert performances – which followed to similar public acclaim.He has been cited as an inspiration by many artists and inductees into various halls of fame across both country music and the blues, in which he was also a pioneer. Among his other popular nicknames were "The Singing Brakeman" and "The Blue Yodeler".
