Another batch of recent releases/adds from Rhapsody. Keep in mind the Just Added stuff may not always be a new release or re-issue but simply Rhapsody adding an album (or even individual track) to thier library.
Nothing earth shattering this time out...
Alison Krauss : A Hundred Miles or More - Various odds and sods from blue grass chanteuse Krauss includes crossover friendly duets with John Waite, Brad Paisley, Sting and James Taylor. Recommended.
Corinne Bailey Rae: Live in New York - Polished, if not particularly necessary, live set. Good for what it is.
Martina McBride: Waking Up Laughing - Another batch of way above average country goodness. Recomended.
Kings of Leon: Because the Times - Recommended.
Guster: Satelite E.P. - Fine collection of indie pop extra bits. Nice.
Suphala: Blueprint - Tabla-licious set featuring guests Edie Brikell, Vernon Reid and Vickter Duplaix
Melanie Hammet: Under the Same Sky - Modest collection of contemplative girl-folk.
Rick Mester: Wallpaper Sky - Haircut 100 meets the Postal Service on this understated collection of low-fi alt-pop. Nothing brilliant but worth a listen.
Mia Sable: Propeller - Above average collection of grrl pop (a genre where the line between super star and also ran has always been fairly thin quality-wise).
Michael Perry: I Got it From the Cows - Bovine themed monologues... sounds atrocious but it's fairly compelling stuff. Check it out (and don't worry it isn't all cow related)
Larry Gallagher: Can I Go Now? - TMBG meets Bruce Cockburn - or somthing.. worth a listen.
Laura MacLean: If the Shoe Fits Wear it Out - More above average Lilith Fair friendly femme folk rock pop whatever.
Late Tuesday: Drowning Out Love - See Above.
Marilyn Rucker: Everybody's Somebody Else's Weirdo - Sassy, silly folk comedy.(Grandma Tell Us About Your Tattoos, Spoiled Rotten White Girl Blues)
Leaving Rouge: Elsewhere - Decent Westerberg-ish alt-rock.
and finally a trio of albums from Love Camp 7. I remember hearing LC7 do a live set on FMU donkey's years ago and spent years trying to find their albums. Well now I've got three - my sentimental fave is Conspiracy of Flowers' Brian Wilson obsession but all three are worth tracking down. Highly Recommended!
