Elvis Costello, Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. “I've been waiting 10 years for this Elvis album – snarling, passionate, and bluegrass.”

Blind Pilot, Three Rounds and a Sound. “Oh how I've fallen for this folk-pop record.”

Bela Fleck, Throw Down Your Heart. “Intimate Africa, tasteful and gorgeous.”

Amadou and Miriam, Welcome to Mali.  “Africa on a broad canvas.”

The Lovell Sisters, Time to Grow. “Playing and singing well beyond any Dixie Chicks-comparisons.”

David Byrne, Everything That Happens... (live]. “Perfect live Byrne - somewhere between relaxed and possessed. A glimpse of June 18. “

Mumford and Sons, Chess Club Release. “Even better than Avett Brothers meet Coldplay.”

Sarah Jarosz, Song Up in Her Head. “Reviewed in Rolling Stone? Yep, people are going to find this album. And love it.”

Gaslight Anthem, '59 Sound. “Initially the vocal pitchiness felt a little too off, now I can't scream-along any other way.” 

Esbjorn Svensson Trio, Leucocyte. “Wow. Pulls you in with texture and voicings – then pushes you into orbit. Why am I just finding this now?”
