CD of the Week

Each week KRCB recommends an album we have some to love and hope you do as well.

Her latest, a double CD or double vinyl record release.   

The Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband-and-wife team of singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks, have grown into one of the most deeply skilled and admired musical ensembles in the world. Produced by Derek Trucks and recorded at Swamp Raga Studios, the band’s home studio in Jacksonville, Florida, Let Me Get By – 10 new songs all written or co-written by the band – is an absorbing, self-assured artistic leap forward.

Aoife (pronounced EEE-fah) O’Donovan’s debut solo album, Fossils, was released to critical acclaim and ended up on many Best of 2013 lists from outlets like NPR Music, American Songwriter, New York Magazine and No Depression, among others. Aoife appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, NPR’s Weekend Edition, SiriusXM The Coffee House and The Village. President Obama even exposed himself as a fan by including the track Red and White and Blue and Gold on his first official Spotify playlist in the summer of 2015.

The debut album of a band founded by esteemed saxophonist and composer Charles Lloyd, featuring Bill Frisell (guitar), Greg Leisz (pedal steel), Reuben Rogers (bass) and Eric Harland (drums).

We share the shock and sadness of the passing of David Bowie. 

On Friday January 8, we listened to his much anticipated new album, Blackstar

It’s rare to have such a massive release at the beginning of the year, but it was his 69th birthday;…so cool !  

Rare is the band that can cover themselves. Rarer is the band that would even think of it and rarer still is a band that would return to the conception and re-imagine its first breakthrough record. Stuff Like That There, a fourteen song collection of covers, originals and reworking(s) happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Yo La Tengo’s landmark 1990 album, Fakebook.

Watkins Family Hour - an acclaimed musical collective featuring siblings Sara and Sean Watkins along with Fiona Apple, Benmont Tench, Don Heffington, Greg Leisz and Sebastian Steinberg - will release their debut, self-titled album on July 24. Additionally, in celebration of the release, the collective will take their 'variety show of epic proportions' (Los Angeles Times) to cities across the U.S.

Something More Than Free is the follow up to Isbell's 2013 celebrated breakthrough album Southeastern, which received overwhelming support from the press and went on to sell over 150,000 copies. Isbell was the subject of stories in outlets ranging from The New York Times Magazine and Wall Street Journal to NPR's All Things Considered and Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit made multiple television appearances, including The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan and Austin City Limits.

Honesty, confidence, and respect permeate Eilen Jewell's music, dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006. Since then, the Boise native has recorded five studio albums for Signature Sounds with her road-tested touring band, and two more as a member of the Boston-based gospel-charged Sacred Shakers, which includes that well-oiled band at its core.

With their third album Monterey, The Milk Carton Kids have evolved their signature sound into its purest essence. Writing on the road, these duo found themselves finishing and editing each other's songs, resulting in a batch of songs where, for the first time in the band's career, friends and family cannot tell who wrote what.
