Radio 91

The second album from this reunited outfit featuring Tom Petty and Mike Campbell alongside their pre-Heartbreakers bandmates. Mudcrutch 2 is the follow up to the band’s 2008 eponymous debut, which Rolling Stone called “a country-rock instant classic” in a rave four star review. This album was produced by band members Tom Petty and Mike Campbell with Ryan Ulyate. All members of Mudcrutch contribute songs on Mudcrutch 2. The album includes seven originals written by Tom Petty, with band members Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh and Benmont Tench composing one each.

“I look like an insider because of everything I’ve done but I always felt like an outsider,” Darrell Scott says. “And that’s important – to be an outsider.” He’s also a master. Witness his ability to make just about any instrument talk, listen to his vocals and songwriting to hear him contain every emotion between joy and pain within one verse in his singing and in his pen.

The 39th studio album from the late R&B/soul/rock icon. Hit n Run Phase Two is the follow up album to the fan favorite Hit n Run Phase One, which was released in September 2015. A few of the tracks – ‘Baltimore’, ‘RocknRoll Love Affiar’, ‘Xtraloveable’, ‘Groovy Potential’, and ‘Screwdriver’ – had been released online over the past few years in different forms but have been overdubbed or reworked for this release. 

The 23rd studio album by Santana and the fourth album by almost the entire Woodstock-era classic lineup. The album reunites the early 1970s classic lineup of Carlos Santana, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve and marks the first time in 45 years – since 1971’s multi-platinum classic Santana III – that the quintet has recorded together. Joining the core Santana IV band in the studio are current Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts.

It took four years for The Lumineers to follow up their platinum-plus self-titled debut – which spent 46 weeks on the Billboard 200 and peaked at #2 – but Cleopatra is well worth the wait. During that time, The Lumineers – whose original members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites founded the band in Ramsey, New Jersey back in 2002 – earned a pair of Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Americana Album). Cleopatra proves Schultz and Fraites – along with cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek- are neither taking their good fortune for granted, nor sitting back on their laurels.

The alt-rock band’s 10th studio album. The first track from the highly anticipated album, “Thank God For Girls” (“insanely catchy new single”-NPR), has charted across multiple genres. Rivers Cuomo described this release as a “beach album”, based on his experiences ” hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, the kids from La Sera.” Cuomo specifically used Tinder to meet people for song ideas.

  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.

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).
