Alabama Shakes … Boys & Girls … 2012

Their debut opens with the lines “Bless my heart, bless my soul/Didn’t think I’d make it to 22yrs old” and it’s definitely a statement of purpose. Part ‘60’s soul, part roots rock, there’s nothing but sweat and passion in this music. This band blew up even before their album came out, lead singer Brittany Howard’s prowess is undeniable. Check this shit out.

Young Man … Vol. 1 … 2012

Sweeping, earnest indie rock - a little like Yeasayer. Hazy, trippy and a lot of fun - this record is going somewhere!

EXITMUSIC … Passage … 2012

Dark, distorted synth rock with gothic female vocals. Fuzzy and fun.

Cold Specks … I Predict A Graceful Expulsion … 2012

Soulful, testimonial folk. This woman pours herself out into this album, it bleeds. Art can be entertaining and art can be affecting, this is the latter. All power and grace.

Killer Mike … R.A.P. Music … 2012

Bad-ass rap out of Atlanta. This guy is anti-big production, glitzy-bling-glam hip hop culture. This album is about being a rapper, being from Atlanta, and being Michael Render. Highly recommended!
