Dailey & Vincent
"Brothers of the Highway"

There are lots of good bluegrass albums, and there are a few great ones. There are also some that stand out even above those ones, and this new release from Dailey & Vincent is going to prove to be one of those.

Various Artists
"The Music Is You: A Tribute to John Denver"
ATO Records

There are lots of tribute albums around, though they are a curious bird. The assumption we make as consumers is that the people who contribute do so because they were inspired by the person whose work they are celebrating.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Bursting out of the New York scene as an avant-garde embodiment of "live fast, die young," the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have made it to 10 years -- and their fourth album -- a testimony to the band's maturation.

Caitlin Rose
"The Stand-In"

The Strokes
"Comedown Machine"

The Strokes have taken quite the detour since their proto-punk sound of the early 2000s. Where the Strokes once charmed with their simple, lackadaisical garage pop, 2006's "First Impressions of Earth" proved a bizarre and unrewarding attempt at new wave; the band then returned in 2011 with the even odder sounding album, "Angles."

While the album's title, "Everything's Fine, America," may be ironic, the music of Last to Show First to Go is anything but.

Youth Lagoon
"Wondrous Bughouse"
Fat Possum

Youth Lagoon's second album, "Wondrous Bughouse," captures the mercurial cerebrum of a 20-something thinker with aural examples of torturous moments in young adulthood. In lieu of conversation, Trevor Powers will exorcise his chronic anxiety by making records with vistas of psychedelic musical plains. These pathways to Powers' mind funnel in the ambience of the Cocteau Twins and mysticism of Tangerine Dream.

Ribbon Music

Thao Nguyen formed the basis of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down around 2004 with drummer Willis Thompson in Falls Church, Va., later picking up (and, since then, dropping) musicians Adam Thompson and Frank Stewart and relocating the duo's efforts to San Francisco.

Tegan and Sara
Warner Bros.

Writing charming and infectious pop is nothing new for Canadian sisters Tegan and Sara Quin, but seven albums later they're still finding ways to change their sound.
