July 2018

13 July

Mikaela Davis/ ‘Delivery’/ Rounder Records

With her debut LP, the Bon Iver tourmate sets out to challenge listeners’ notions of what the harp can do with synths, AM rock and funk. These songs, produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Future Islands, Angel Olsen, Alvvays), explore the idea of self-acceptance while sounding like gospel piano bursting into a wall of sound, illustrated most vividly by the lead single title track.

Rayland Baxter/ ‘Wide Awake’/ ATO

In 2016, the hard-touring Baxter realized a longtime dream – he moved into an abandoned rubber-band factory in Kentucky, covered the windows, brought in a guitar and piano, and spent three straight months writing. The result is a howlin’ gamut of songs covering student debt (lead single “Casanova”), American values (“Strange American Dream”), a national fixation with guns (“79 Shiny Revolvers”) and other stories showing the best and worst of humanity.

Jon Cleary/ ‘Dyna-Mite’/ FHQ/Thirty Tigers

The New Orleans pianist and songwriter is regarded as one of the great heirs to the city's music heritage - an outsider from Kent, England who improbably has become a beloved personality in his adopted hometown. Cleary follows his GRAMMY-winning last album with a tribute to his city, a moveable R&B and funk feast that puts you right in the French Quarter.

Smithsonian Folkways Recordings

Dom Flemons – Grand Ole Opry (Nashville)

The historian and co-founder of the GRAMMY-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops returns to the Opry stage. Flemons and the house band take the listener on an illuminating journey through the Old West via re-worked string-blues music, old-time square-dance music and cowboy poetry. Flemons also plays original music written for his latest album, Black Cowboys (Smithsonian Folkways Recordings), which explores and celebrates the history of Africa-American cowboy songs.

Meg Myers/ ‘Take Me To The Disco’/ 300 Entertainment

She grew up a Jehovah’s Witness, wrote music that MTV called the female answer to Nine Inch Nails and garnered millions of streams and views for her debut album. Now Myers takes a brutal look at her own journey full of love, loneliness and trauma, all with her “tremendously powerful voice” (Rolling Stone) and “seething…riffs” (New York Times).

Boz Scaggs/ ‘Out Of The Blues’/ Concord

The next phase of this versatile singer, songwriter and guitarist’s musical renaissance brings him back to his earliest roots. Scaggs applies his iconic voice and gritty guitar playing to blues classics by Bobby “Blue” Bland, Jimmy Reed and Magic Sam; to a stirring reading of Neil Young’s “On the Beach”; and to new original “Little Miss Night and Day,” written with Jack Walroth.
