Anna & Elizabeth
"Anna & Elizabeth"
Free Dirt

Folk music is a lot more like golf than you might think, were you ever to think about this kind of thing. The more muscle you put into it, the more erratic you game becomes.

Motopony
"Welcome You"
Entertainment One

Motopony's new album "Welcome You" is like a sonic thunderstorm, blending big energies from different genres until they become a lush, lucid party.

Dawes
"All Your Favorite Bands"
HUB

For its fourth album, Dawes continues to evolve, showing off some competent adaptations. But the total creature doesn't quite beat out natural selection.

Florence + the Machine
"How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful"
Island

Florence Welch and her Machine swept onto the indie-pop scene with "Lungs," their critically-acclaimed debut album. Her songs ruminated on myth, love, and insanity, then soared their way into popular films and television shows.

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell
"The Traveling Kind"
Nonesuch

There's a scene in the first season of "Nashville" where Rayna James approaches a young rock producer to make her next album. She's only written one song toward the project, but nevertheless, she's more interested in her sound.

Brian Wilson
"No Pier Pressure"
Capitol

"No Pier Pressure," Brian Wilson's first album since the Beach Boys reunion ended, is a confounding record, often drowning the master of harmonies, ironically, beneath the pressure of his peers.

Kendrick Lamar
"To Pimp a Butterfly"
Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope

In the early days of Kendrick Lamar's career, no one would have pegged him as a guy with a message. But as this Compton kid's career evolved so did his lyrics and purpose, and that is ever more present on "To Pimp a Butterfly."

Drake
"If You're Reading This It's Too Late"
Cash Money

One night in December 2013, while many people were getting ready to turn in for the night, and others took to Facebook and Instagram for some late night reading, a quick scroll past singer Beyonce's page revealed she had released a surprise album. You couldn't hear it, but you could hear a collective OMG across the Internet.

Bob Dylan
"Shadows in the Night"
Columbia

Last May, on the anniversary of Frank Sinatra's fatal heart attack, Bob Dylan released his own version of the Chairman's classic, "Full Moon and Empty Arms." Sparse and wistful, the release hinted at a new album but was left unexplained at the time.
