  Bob Mould reconnected with his essential primal roar on 2012's Silver Age, embracing the endless possibilities of a power trio thanks to his allegiance with drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy.

  Fate has a way of putting things into an interesting context. When it was announced that Iggy Popwould be collaborating with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, the music press buzzed with anticipation about the project.

  Jeff Buckley recorded the ten tracks that comprise the 2016 compilation You and I in February 1993, roughly four months after he signed to Columbia Records.

  Full Circle is no accidental title for this, Loretta Lynn's first album after a 12-year break.

  Centered on the warm, highly resonant vocals of Rachael Price, Boston's Lake Street Dive began their career as an eclectic, adventurous quartet just as likely to play a twangy, Fleetwood Mac song or a Hall & Oates cover as any of t

  The last two Vince Gill albums celebrated their intentions within their titles: 2011's Guitar Slinger found plenty of space for his six-string prowess and his 2013 duet LP with Paul Franklin was a valentine to Bakersfield country.

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).
