Things that have caught my attention, in no particular order:
Songhoy Blues – Resistance
World music meets crunchy guitar. More great music with political insight from this group from Mali.
St. Vincent – Masseduction
Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile – Lotta Sea Lice
Pure unadulterated roots guitar picking and singing. No pretensions here, great for a fall bike ride.
Broken Social Scene – Hug of Thunder
A new album, same old sound. If you like it (and I do), that’s not a bad thing.
