“Pushin’ Against a Stone” by Valerie June

The new album from Valerie June, Pushin’ Against a Stone, definitely showcases her southern music influences. With a mixture of blues, folk, soul and country there is no way that this album can be defined as one genre of music. The album opens with the track “Workin’ Woman Blues” where the first two minutes of […]

“Circles Super Bon Bon” by Mike Doughty

Singer-songwriter and former Soul Coughing leader Mike Doughty released Circle Super Bon Bon… on September 17th just as he promised his fans he would.

“The Olms” by The Olms

The Olms self titled debut album, a new project from veteran musicians Pete Yorn and J.D. King, is a real musician’s album with abundant influences and nods to other acts and rich in storytelling. Pete Yorn has been a mainstay singer-songwriter since the 2001 release of his debut Musicforthemorninafter. J.D. King is a proper renaissance […]

“The Clash Hits Back” by The Clash
