Here's what I'm checking out from the library's music collection.
- Little Steven – Soulfire: Lead guitarist from the E Street Band with a solo release. I’m looking forward to it
- Lorde – Melodrama: She blew us away with Royals. Here’s her sophomore effort. We’re expecting big things.
- Loretta Lynn – Wouldn’t It Be Great: New songs and reworked classics from country royalty
- Shelby Lynne & Alsion Moorer – Not Dark Yet: Siblings harmonize best, The Everly Brothers, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, The Andrews Sisters and Shelby and Alsion are no exception!
- Van Morrison – Roll with the Punches: His 37th album, this time focused on the blues.
- Randy Newman – Dark Matter: New songs from the Lord of LA
- Chris Stapleton – From a Room, Vol. 1: Sophomore effort from the guy who dominated country radio last year, Waiting on From A Room, Vol. 2 now :)
- George Thorogood – Party of One: This is George, sans backing band, straight with no chaser
- Charlie Watts & Danish Radio Big Band - Charlie Watts Meets the Danish Radio Big Band: Charlie started as a jazz drummer. He just took the Stones job to pay bills while waiting for another gig. Looks like his ship finally came in.
- Trombone Shorty – Parking Lot Symphony: Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Hippity-hoppity, Shorty and the boys make it look and sound easy.
- Rhonda Vincent – American Grandstand: Bluegrass royalty, need I say more?
