On this 1986 debut, Steve Earle burst on the scene as a fully formed songwriting master, synthesizing effortlessly the finest parts of country-folk troubadours like Townes Van Zandt and the anthemic, working-class rock of Bruce Springsteen. "Someday," a country-rock masterpiece about a kid stuck pumping gas in a dead-end town, remains the perfect realization of this style, and with the exception of the slight and silly "Little Rock 'N' Roller," most everything else here (especially "Hillbilly Highway" and the heartbreaking ballad "My Old Friend the Blues") comes awfully close. The 2002 reissue, overseen by Earle and original producer Tony Brown, offers fresh remastering, new liner notes by Earle, and a bonus live version of Springsteen's "State Trooper."

Returning after a short leave of absence from the music industry, 16 Horsepower returns with a vengeance on Folklore. Channeling the desperation and depression of the Southern gothic movement better than most artists, they have reached a point where their music has evolved into a series of edgy Western soundscapes. This is fine, as they take traditional country instruments and utilize them to craft Bauhaus-esque doom anthems. "Single Girl" breaks the mold, sounding almost upbeat as singer David Eugene Edwards surrounds himself with layered vocals and a bouncy bass-driven tempo. And "La Robe a Parasol," the final track, is a lilting French waltz that finishes off the album with a last glimmer of hope. But for the most part, this is a bleak journey into the backwoods, an aural equivalent to Clint Eastwood's grizzled Oscar-winning Unforgiven. Like that film, this album has the same depressing resignation to a poor and unrewarding life and rarely attempts to glimpse the bright side of things. And much like that film, the whole of the album also leaves the listener relieved, acting as a cathartic view of rural depression.

Rockland is the third studio album by Norwegian band Katzenjammer. It was released on January 16, 2015 in Europe and on March 10, 2015 in North America. Katzenjammer are nothing if not distinctive. Formed at an Oslo music school in 2005, the four girls play a diverse blend of country, folk, blues, pop and rock. From Tennessee's Bonnaroo to Australia's Woodford Folk Festival, the quartet have enraptured tens-of-thousands with their genre-mixing, instrument-swapping and riotous shows. Their 2008 debut, 'Le Pop', showed that they were as fun on record as live and 2011's 'A Kiss Before You Go' was a symphonic journey through the emotions, full of vigour and vocal harmonies. Throughout this all they have done things their own way. 'Rockland' is undoubtedly their most refined and accomplished effort so far…

Dennis Quaid & The Sharks origins can be traced to a night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band perform in Los Angeles. Quaid was invited to join the band onstage. At first reluctant, because of his decade-long layoff from music, Quaid finally acquiesced, and his performance sparked a musical kinship between Jamie James—guitar player in Stanton’s band and the Kingbees’ front man—and Quaid that led to them forming their own band.

Country | Label: Macon Music, Broken Bow Records

If one song can sum up the rip-roaring energy on Jason Aldean’s eighth studio album, it’s “Gettin’ Warmed Up,” a swirling mix of electric-guitar riffs, country-rock choruses, and an explosive rap interlude. “You need a good time?/Well, I brought it,” he spits with the fire of a Beastie Boy. Rearview Town is indeed a good-time ruckus, full of swaggering, arena-ready country anthems backed by rock muscle (“Up in Smoke,” “Set It Off”). A tender moment arrives in “Drowns the Whiskey,” an expressive, harmony-driven duet with Miranda Lambert. Album closer “High Noon Neon,” the inspiration for his accompanying tour, leaves the energy at a 10.

Lorrie and Larry Collins - aka The Collins Kids - were teenage Rockabilly royalty, stars of the prestigious 1950s US 8200;TV 8200;show Town Hall Party. Child prodigy Larry was already a red hot guitarist at the age of 11, famous for playing a twin-necked Mosrite guitar which was very nearly as big as him, while elder sister Lorrie handled lead vocals and accompanied him on rhythm guitar. They recorded prolifically for the 8200;Columbia label between 1955-61. This compilation features their best-known songs, e.g.

Enjoy this superb collection including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and many more.

A mixture of utterly trad folk and country tunes with some hipsterish indie touches, The Black Dove is uneven, but it works more often than it doesn't. The songs sung by Sharron Kraus, a British folksinger whose voice bears comparison both to U.K. folk icons like June Tabor and American country singers like Gillian Welch, fit uneasily against those featuring Christian Kiefer's hushed bedroom-rock murmur. Imagine Norma Waterson collaborating with Elliott Smith and the parameters of the project's influences will become clear, as well as its flaws. However, the songs featuring Kraus are uniformly excellent, as are the atmospheric instrumental interludes between songs, which occasionally recall Dolly Collins' fantasias for harmonium on her albums with sister Shirley. Kiefer's whispery material, which works better on his solo records, simply sounds out of place in these surroundings.

Few young singer/songwriters have quite so quickly won the sort of acclaim that Idaho-born Josh Ritter gained with his first self-released album, which won rave reviews, earned him slots opening for Bob Dylan, and made him a minor celebrity in Ireland, where he's already headlined several tours. Ritter's second disc (and first nationally released album), Golden Age of Radio, makes it clear that his sudden success is well deserved, and based on genuine talent. Ritter's moody, evocative songs seem to reside in a middle ground between Richard Buckner and Ryan Adams, but without suggesting he's lifted anything from either of those performers…
