Mark O'Connor
"American Classics"
OMAC

It's probably safe to say that this album won't appear on many year-end best of 2012 lists, likely because it's really a kind of teaching tool: a presentation of the pieces that Mark O'Connor included in his fiddle method books.

"What Hides Inside" may only be the title to the new Jump Starts record but it aptly describes the current scene in St. Louis.

Dave Gunning
"No More Pennies"
Wee House Music

Sometimes with new albums, as is the case with Dave Gunning's "No More Pennies," it's as much about the packaging as it is the music.

Beth Orton
"Sugaring Season"
Anti-

Capable of creating both lush, verdant landscapes of sound and sparse, haunting ballads, Beth Orton is a master of the acoustic guitar-driven, folk-pop song.

Green Day
"¡Uno!"
Reprise

"¡Uno!" plays as an exuberant, physical release after several years of Green Day's devotion to political punk-rock operas.

Band of Horses
"Mirage Rock"
Columbia

Prior to recording 2007's "Cease to Begin," Band of Horses vocalist Ben Bridwell relocated the band from Seattle to his home state of South Carolina.

Half a century after Bob Dylan's self-titled debut comes the bard's 35th studio album, "Tempest." I've got my tools nearby -- a scotch-taped copy of "Chronicles" for reference, a warm bottle of Empire Sarsaparilla for relief and a tourniquet for no reason at all. We can't stop the blood, so let’s hash this thing out.

Cat Power
"Sun"
Matador

Chan Marshall has a reputation for being an unpredictable performer, and paying to see a Cat Power show is a little bit like hedging your bets in favor of Guns N' Roses or Van Halen.

Caroline Herring
"Camilla"
Signature Sounds

I'm not certain that this is Herring's best album to date, and then again I'm not sure that it isn't. But what I am sure of is that it continues, beautifully, what she has been up to since her first solo release, "Twilight," in 2001.

Chris Smither
"Hundred Dollar Valentine"
Signature Sounds

As I listen to this new collection, which is just as good as anything Chris Smither has done in his career if not better, I can't help wondering why he isn't better known.
