the avett brothers
Ramseur Records

After more than two decades as a band, The Avett Brothers have stamped their own name on their 11th album. It's a return in some ways to their original form, too raucous vocals, with harmonies in just the right places, over simple instrumentation. Here the guitars are electric, and the production is modern, but its a classic Avett Brothers theme: the agony and ecstasy of being in love.

beth gibbons
Domino Record Co.

Ortons (Portishead) most personal work to date, the result of a period of sustained reflection and change lots of goodbyes, in Beths words. Farewells to family, to friends, even to her former self. These are songs from the mid-course of life, when looking ahead no longer yields what it used to, and looking back has a sudden, sharper focus.

blitzen trapper
Yep Roc Records

The songs here are as sincere as they are surreal, rooted in rich character studies and deep reflection. Its a gorgeous collection of stripped-down bedroom folk wrapped in lush layers of synthesizers and washed out electric guitars, a poignant, expansive exploration of perception and purpose that manages to look both forwards and backwards all at once.

cage the elephant
RCA Records

Following a five year hiatus and navigating through some notably peculiar circumstances, the Kentucky rockers are prepared to pick up where they left off (Social Cues 2019s Grammy winner for Best Rock Album) with the highly anticipated sounds of Neon Pill. Its the perfect return for a band that has been greatly missed.

collective soul
Fuzze-Flex Records

30 years later, Collective Soul is still going strong and continues to create infectious Alt-Rock music that is loved around the world. Here To Eternity contains 20 tracks of the catchy melodies, driving guitars, and soaring choruses that have defined the band's sound since their early days. This is a love letter to the fans.

billie eilish
Darkroom/Interscope

Eilishs third studio album, her most daring body of work to date, does exactly as the title suggests; hits you hard and soft both lyrically and sonically, while bending genres and defying trends along the way. This whole process has felt like Im coming back to the girl that I was, Eilish says. Ive been grieving her. Ive been looking for her in everything.

amen dunes
Mono Mundo Recordings

Known for their eclectic Americana/roots fusion of alternative & outlaw country, rock, blues, R&B and Tejano/Tex-Mex influences, The Mavericks appropriately recorded these tracks in Nashville, New Mexico and Louisiana. The result invokes both a timeless feel of a classic Mavericks while again challenging conventions and pushing boundaries.
