Judy Collins – Bohemian (2011)

Released to coincide with the iconic folksinger’s 2011 memoir, Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Bohemian finds Judy Collins revisiting the late-’60s California music scene. Driven by her signature effortless soprano, the album features four new original cuts (“Morocco,” “Wings of Angels,” “In the Twilight,” and “Big Sur”) along with seven covers, including “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Joni Mitchell’s “Cactus Tree,” the latter of which finds the seemingly ageless Collins sharing vocal duties with Shawn Colvin. Elsewhere, Collins deftly tackles the Woody Guthrie workers ballad “Pastures of Plenty” and Jimmy Webb’s lively “Campo de Encino,” and offers up a lovely and austere rendition of the traditional lullaby “All the Pretty Horses.”

Chaealambides – Exile (2011)

Exile’ is the new Charalambides album. Five years in the making, it was recorded between 2006 and 2010 in various locations in New Hampshire, western Massachusetts and New York City, mixed at Black Dirt Studios, and mastered at Sand with Paul Gold. The group remains the core duo of Christina and Tom Carter, with contributions on one track by the string section of Helena Espvall and Margarida Garcia.Deeply imbued with the full historical spectrum of American folk and blues song form, ‘Exile’ is a tapestry of suppliant invocations directed at the heart of the unseen spiritual forces surrounding us. Dense arrangements and thickly-overdubbed tracks sit side-by-side with material that ranks among the sparest and most skeletal the group has recorded, giving ‘Exile’ the psychic scope of their classic Market Square album while building on the remnements of the more recent ‘Likeness’ and ‘A Vintage Burden’ releases.This album quite coincidentally marks Charalambides’ 20th anniversary, as it was the fall of 1991 when they first started playing, and they made their live debut in December of that year. Since their last album, Tom Carter has released a series of collaborations and solo works on a wide array of labels, while Christina Carter has been steadily releasing her solo work through labels including her own Many Breaths imprint.

Giant Sand – Ballad of a Thin Man + Valley of Rain [1997]

Giant Sand’s first two albums, Valley of Rain and Ballad of a Thin Line, were reissued on a single compact disc. Even at the beginning of their career, Giant Sand had a distinctive take on dusty country-rock in the vein of Neil Young, and while both records have some clunkers, Howe Gelb’s songwriting is often quite impressive.

Little Axe – If You Want Loyalty Buy a Dog (2011)

If You Want Loyalty Buy A Dog is the culmination of a 25 year long musical partnership between producer Adrian Sherwood and musician, Skip ‘Little Axe’ McDonald. Skip’s roots lie in the blues, first taught to him by his father while growing up in Dayton, Ohio. Adrian is considered one of the world’s most versatile and prolific dub producers and a sonic visionary. The new album features the legendary drummer, Style Scott, playing with both Dub Syndicate and Roots Radics, drawing on both classic and new On-U Rhythms. From start to finish this is a dynamic and un-compromising meeting of both forms of Roots music.

Yann Tiersen – Skyline (2011)

Yann Tiersen  musical career is split between studio albums, collaborations and film soundtracks with a distinctive sound that is always involved. It can be recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments; primarily the guitar, synthesizer or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, harpsichord, accordion and typewriter. Tiersen is often mistaken as a composer of soundtracks, himself saying “I’m not a composer and I really don’t have a classical background,” but his real focus is on touring and studio albums which just happen to often be suitable for film; his most famous soundtrack for the film Amélie was primarily made up of tracks taken from his first studio albums.
