Elephant
"Sky Swimming"
Memphis Industries

Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck of the UK band Elephant describe their sound as "nocturnal, lo-fi, bedroom dreamy beach pop," and the release of their first full-length album "Sky Swimming" embodies that description without question.

St. Vincent
"St. Vincent"
Loma Vista/Republic

It's remarkable what 10 years in the industry have done for Texas native St. Vincent (Annie Clark). Now, with five albums on the shelves, she's reaching the masses not just by gracing the top 40 charts, but by infusing her music with qualities not-often heard in mainstream music.

Darol Anger
"E-and'a"
Adventure Music

Darol Anger is one of the most skilled fiddlers working today. He is interested in taking the instrument into new places, though he's not interested in developing an entirely new vocabulary for the instrument, and I think that's an important distinction.

Noah Gundersen
"Ledges"
Dualtone

"Stone-cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man's son" -- these are the raspy, passionate words that mark the beginning of Noah Gundersen's first full-length album, released February 11, 2014.

Tony Trischka
"Great Big World"
Rounder

I wanted to love this album, and I'm having a hard time with it even now, because saying something negative about a new album from Tony Trischka is akin to sacrilege.

Temples
"Sun Structures"
Heavenly Recordings

Psychedelic rock is like the aurora borealis of popular music. It dazzles then disappears, flares then flickers out. The genre seems to lie latent just long enough so that each wave can astonish anew, offering new generations a conduit to another place in time.

Band of Horses
"Acoustic at the Ryman"
Brown Records

The best part of Band of Horses' first concert album is the feeling that you're listening to these talented musicians perform their heartfelt tunes within the walls of your own home -- but with much better acoustics.

Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott
"Memories and Moments"
Full Skies

The thing about Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott is that each project comes with the feeling that you're joining a show already in progress. That's true of their latest studio release, "Memories and Moments," which comes a full decade after their first.

Destroyer
"Five Spanish Songs"
Merge

In 2011, Dan Bejar (voice and vision behind Destoyer) announced he was done with rock 'n' roll. In September of this year, he said he was done with the English language. That didn't leave a lot of directions for his music.

Noam Pikelny
"Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe"
Compass Records

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I love everything about this album. The only way to make it any better would be to have it autographed.
