Bob Dylan
"Shadows in the Night"

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.

Becky Buller
"'Tween Earth and Sky"
Dark Shadow Recording

Becky Buller has, until now, been known principally in the bluegrass world as a songwriter, and her list of credits bears that out. Her songs have been recorded by a who's who of the bluegrass world, and they in turn have had great success with her songs.

Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
+180 Records

The cover photo of this disc is a composite of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, one image overlaid on the other. It's hard to see who belongs to which hands, or which head goes with which shirt, and indeed, the music on this disc continues in that vein -- they play so closely together, it is as if the two minds have become one. It's unreal.

Sean Watkins
"All I Do Is Lie"
Roaring Girl

If you were a musician and needed a place to hide -- say you're on the run from an angry spouse or the revenue man -- you might consider standing next to Chris Thile.

Hot Rize
"When I’m Free"
Thirty Tigers

If you’re not excited to hear that Hot Rize has a new album out, then you should be. The quartet is a defining band in the grand sweep of bluegrass, formed as a supergroup in a sense, though perhaps that only came after the fact.

Willie Watson
"Folk Singer Vol. 1"

The jacket design of Willie Watson's "Folk Singer Vol. 1" is pure 1963 camp: he's got a pipe, and the presentation is sparse to look like a Lomax field recording from the period.

Comet Gain
"Paperback Ghosts"
Fortuna POP!

Forgoing the garage stomp of past efforts "Howl of the Lonely Crowd" and "Réalistes," Comet Gain embraces introspective folk and indie pop on its seventh LP, "Paperback Ghosts."

White Lung
"Deep Fantasy"

Vancouver quartet White Lung keeps a frenzied tempo for the entirety of "Deep Fantasy," maintaining raw intensity before reaching an abrupt halt.

Lana Del Rey

Nine hundred some days since vultures began circling after that ill-fated "Saturday Night Live," Lana Del Rey has returned as a dark, defiant diva, a phoenix breaking free with unbridled "Ultraviolence."

The Duhks
"Beyond the Blue"
Compass Records

When the Duhks first came on the scene in 2001 they were, right off the mark, as challenging as they were entertaining, and as infectious as they were affecting.
