Deafheaven - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (Anti)

Vocalist George Clarke describes the composition of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love beginning with "small seeds of healing, repair, and rebirth," and like each subsequent Deafheaven album, this record is, in fact, a revelation. Defeat has inspired some of our best art. If you survive something terrible, you surface on the other side, walk toward the light, and come back to life. If you're an artist, this kind of new self-knowledge can lead to creating something universal and remembered, something that can live longer than you do. While Deafheaven have managed to cross over this road in the past, they've nailed the feeling wholly with Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, a feeling that comes with experience and wisdom.

Jason Isbell - Sirens Of The Ditch (DLX reissue) (New West)

The debut album from guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell is reissued with 4 unreleased tracks from the original recording sessions. It's mystical quality can be partially attributed to the FAME recording studio (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding) in Isbell's hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL where the album was recorded. Co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood. Several musicians pop in for cameos including Spooner Oldham and David Hood (Patterson's father) on "Down In A Hole", John Neff (Formerly of DBT) on "Dress Blues" and Patterson himself guests on "Shotgun Wedding".

The Jayhawks - Back Roads And Abandoned Motels (Legacy)

Jayhawks' versions of songs originally written by front man Gary Louris with and for other artists, including "Come Cryin' to Me" (Natalie Maines' Mother in 2013); "Everybody Knows" and "Bitter End" (Dixie Chicks' Taking The Long Way in 2006); "Gonna Be a Darkness" (Louris and Jakob Dylan for True Blood: Volume 3 in 2011); "Need You Tonight" (Scott Thomas' Matson Tweed in 2015); "El Dorado" (Carrie Rodriguez' She Ain't Me in 2008); "Bird Never Flies" (Ari Hest's The Break-In in 2007); "Backwards Women" (written with Wild Feathers but never recorded) and "Long Time Ago" (written with Emerson Hart of Tonic but never recorded). In addition the album premieres two brand new songs.

Tanukichan - Sundays (Carpark)

Sundays is the debut full length from Oakland-based Tanukichan, aka Hannah van Loon. At surface level, the album sounds just how the title describes: hazy, dreamy, reflective, just like a lazy Sunday afternoon. What started with a few unfocused demos, became a studio experience and viable collection of music after a friend introduced her to Chaz Bear (Toro Y Moi). The two set out to make a much more sonically cohesive release, with both the producer and artist playing all the instruments on the record. The result is a slice of dream pop that could only come from the combination of the laid back atmosphere of California and the nostalgic and often difficult memories that are generally associated with coming of age.

The Carters - Everything is Love (Roc Nation)

If Lemonade was Beyonce publicly, subtly and sublimely exorcising the demons of her union, 4:44 was a humbled and disarmed Jay-Z figuring family and community into his success equation. Both albums dealt directly (and tacitly) with their responsibilities to each other, and their responsibility to society as black billionaires. Everything Is Love is couples counseling as an art exhibition, as much a splendid relationship retrospective as it is a celebration of their growing black family dynasty. When Beyoncé raps, "My great-great-grandchildren already rich/That's a lot of brown children on your Forbes list," she's connecting the dots between their love and their legacy. CD only for now.

VA - Onda de Amor: Synthesized Brazilian Hits That Never Were (1984-94) (Soundway)

Some crate-digging compilations are often the result of someone hand-picking their choice favorites from another country's musical history, perhaps unaware or uninvolved with its cultural lineage in the process. Onda De Amor is a release that is loaded with smooth grooves, bubbling bass, glistening synthesizers, funk-strutting guitar lines, and sheen of production that undeniably marks it of its time. Features Ricardo Bomba, Vânia Bastos, Rosana Mendes & Grupo Veneno, Grupo Controle Digital, Villa Box, Batista Junior, Dado Brazzawilly, Anacy Arcanjo, Fogo Baiano, Dodo Da Bahia & As Virgens De Porto Seguro, Via Negromonte, Electric Boogies, Os Abelhudos, Nanda Rossi, Andre Melo, and Regiao Abissal.

Dirty Projectors - Lamp Lit Prose (Domino)

David Longstreth's band returns with a new album that is the yang to the yin of the 2017 effort. The songs signal a page turned: hope instead of heartbreak, a restorative balance. Guitars have returned, intricate and gorgeous vocal harmony too. In addition to the core musicians and guests, LA string group the Calder Quartet, and The Brass Players of Los Angeles both appear on several songs. 'Lamp Lit Prose' is a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band's trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope. Lamp Lit Prose comes with collaborations from HAIM, Syd, Robin Pecknold, Rostam Batmanglij, Amber Mark, Empress Of and Dear Nora.

Ross Martinie Eiler - Live With The Boogie Three LP (self)

Ross Martinie Eiler is a hand-hammering, key-slamming, rock'n'roll piano man. He currently plays with the Boogie Three (Joe Donnelly - saxophone, John Valdez - drums). Martinie's Boogie Three explores the rock'n'roll side of blues & boogie-woogie piano and celebrates the high-energy dance music of the 1950s. It's a flurry of bounce that combines original works with crowd-pleasers by Louis Jordan, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ray Charles & Jerry Lee Lewis.
