Johnny Cash/ ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words’/ Legacy Recordings

When Johnny Cash passed away, he left behind a treasure trove of undiscovered material including handwritten letters, poems and documents, penned by Cash across his whole life. This collaborative album, co-produced by Cash’s son, brings these words to life with an all-star cast of musicians – including Rosanne Cash, Elvis Costello, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Ruston Kelly & Kacey Musgraves and the late Chris Cornell – setting these words to music.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue/ ‘Golden’/ BMG

Minogue’s first studio album in four years, her BMG debut, is another stunning addition to her record-breaking career. The album was recorded mainly in Nashville, and the city’s twangy influence colors these vibrant and dance floor-approved tracks, including the fingerpicking “country-pop banger” (Entertainment Weekly) single “Dancing.”

Dead Horses/ ‘My Mother The Moon’/ Independent

The Wisconsin folk four-piece releases its raw and revelatory new album. Produced by Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), the album was inspired by lead singer/songwriter Sarah Vos’ experience of her family being expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father served as a longtime pastor; the new music is both a response to this coming-of-age event and a chance at redemption.

Donovan Woods/ ‘Both Ways’/ Meant Well

The new album by the JUNO Award and Polaris Music Prize nominee is an ambitious lyrical and sonic departure for the songwriter, less an LP and more a collection of short stories brought to life with radio-ready acoustic accompaniments and Wood’s unmistakable rasp. Citing the work of poet Bronwyn Wallace, novelists Richard Ford and Alice Munro as major creative inspirations, Woods says, “The writing I have always liked is about things that are indicative of a world but not the entire world. … I’m inspired by writing that leads you into the room and then leaves you to fill in the details.”

Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog/ ‘Critical Equation’/ Thirty Tigers

“I feel like I’m in a totally new band right now,” co-fronter Scott McMicken says about the beloved indie group’s most infectious and adventurous collection yet. A recent existential awakening fueled one of the most fertile creative periods in the group's history and forced them to confront the question: What do we really want?

Okkervil River/ ‘In The Rainbow Rain’/ ATO

Will Sheff makes a startling left turn from his group’s previous somber and acoustic album with an electric and colorful declaration of hope. Inspired by the Quaker meetings he’s been attending, Sheff channels spirituality and gratitude for something akin to a modern secular gospel record – with synths.
