Jet Plane and Oxbow by Shearwater

If you're in need of an ethereal indie/psychedelic rock album to fall asleep to, try this one. You're bound to have soaring dreams and wake up feeling relaxed yet ready to take on the world. This Austin band has been around since 1999 and some critics are saying this is their best offering to date. I certainly enjoyed the album's quiet power and synth beats combined with a traditional rock base. The album has drawn comparisons to artists from Bruce Springsteen (especially on "Quiet Americans") to Kraftwerk. Listen Now

David Bowie, 1947-2016

Just days after releasing a new album on his 69th birthday, the truly transcendent artist David Bowie died Sunday. Apparently he had been fighting cancer for the last 18 months and died surrounded by his family. Read about his legacy and how people around the world are reacting to his death.

Purple by Baroness

Following a 2012 bus accident that injured three members, Baroness has returned to the music scene with an album of renewal and rebirth. The Georgia sludge metal band (for the uninitiated, that’s a mix of doom metal, hardcore punk and Southern rock) has produced an album that is less heavy than some of their previous works. Psychedelic keyboards, euphoric hooks, and powerful harmonies are at the forefront here. Baroness seems to be reveling in its survival and asking its listeners to celebrate with them. So bang your head in joy, metal heads!

1989 by Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams has produced a track-by-track remake of Taylor Swift’s 1989 to beautiful effect. Adams’ soulful vocals have stripped down these songs to their emotional core and given listeners a different perspective on heartbreak - that of a 40-year-old man going through a divorce, rather than the heartaches of a 25-year-old woman. Adams has said that Swift’s original album helped him through his breakup with Mandy Moore, and I can't imagine a more fitting tribute to Swift’s first official pop album.
