Looking forward and looking back. Never miss the latest music, streaming 24/7, for free, no comercial interuptions. Here are highlights from today's additions:
- Dark Sky Island by Enya
Adult Alternative. The Irish singer/composer's lushly crafted eighth album harkens back to her early masterworks.
- Songs from the Trees: A Musical Memoir Collection by Carly Simon
Singer/Songwriter. Double-disc collection designed to accompany Carly Simon's 2015 memoir Boys in the Trees.
- R40 Live by Rush
Album Rock. A lethal mix of classics, deep cuts, and recent triumphs performed with the gusto of men many years younger.
- This Is Not a Miracle by Food
Modern Creative / Jazz. Originally recorded live in the studio, Thomas Strønen's extensive post-production results in the band's most groove-oriented effort.
- Voice of Peace by Friar Alessandro Brustenghi
Vocal Music. This is a program with a relative lack of familiarity of most of the material, in America or anywhere else.
- Top 5 Dead Or Alive by Jadakiss
Hip-Hop/Rap. Six years in the making, Jadakiss' fourth studio album features guest appearances from some of the biggest names in the game, including Future, Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Swizz Beatz, Wiz Khalifa, Nas, Young Buck, Sheek Louch, Nipsey Hussle, Ne-Yo, Styles P, and more.
- Nick Jonas X2
Pop. A re-release of Nick Jonas' second studio album with three new tracks and four remixes. The classic songwriting and blue-eyed soul vocals are sweet and seductive.
- Live In Paris by Tinariwen
World-African. A very timely release from this band of Taureg refugees who play a political charged style of "desert blues."
- Tracy Chapman's Greatest Hits
Folk. Of course it includes Fast Car, Talkin' Bout a Revolution, and Give Me One Reason, but there are 15 more rich tracks, ending with a recording of Stand By Me recorded live on the Late Show with David Letterman.
