- AFI (The Blood Album)
Alternative/Indie Rock. Alterna-punk vets evolve on their tenth set, combining the band's muscle with the rhythmic new wave/post-punk influences found on side project Blakq Audio.
- Watch Out! by Wells Fargo
Hard Rock. The first anthology from this seminal Zimbabwean heavy rock band who led the country's mid-'70s counterculture.
- Oczy Mlody by The Flaming Lips
Dream Pop. The band searches for hope on a set of hip-hop, prog, and orchestral-tinged songs full of psychedelically heightened emotions.
- Feel Your Feelings Fool! by The Regrettes
Alternative/Indie Rock. Brash, breathless modern punk-pop with a strong classic pop sensibility.
- La La Land [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]
Songs and instrumentals from the film by Whiplash composer Justin Hurwitz and lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, including a tune by John Legend.
- Sequenza by Janusz Wawrowski
Chamber Music. Wawrowski transfers the virtuoso ethos of the Romantic era to repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries.
- Camille Berthollet / Julie Berthollet (self-titled) Chamber Music. The cleverness of the program belies the lightness of the material; these are definitely young musicians to watch.
