Jamey Johnson & Guest Artists // Living For The Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran

Released 10.23.12 Mercury Nashville

Tribute albums are a dicey thing and usually don’t work. “Beat the Retreat” (tribute to Richard Thompson) & “Timeless: A Tribute to Hank Williams” come to mind as ones that really work. This one is equally well done.

Sufjan Stevens // Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6-10

Released 11.13.12 Asthmatic Kitty

Mark it down, guys: October 19th, the day KVNF started getting in Christmas albums. Not to worry, the airwaves won't be jingling for at least another month, I imagine. But with NPR's piece, New Holiday Songs: A Smart Career Move, we can ponder just why it is so attractive for every man, woman and child with access to a mic (read: every man, woman, and child) to record a bit of their own xmas cheer.

Ty Segal // Twins

Released 10.9.12  Drag City

 

In the malevolence of Ty Segall's 2012 album onslaught (this is #4 if you include his tasty, old-time-high-fi collaboration with White Fence), Twins is the most organized- like a less-severe natural disaster. As the cover depicts, we're still in for a mind-bend, but it's as if some of the sheer fuzz was combed & suited by NASA in preparation for a space launch.

Sugar's Picks Oct. 15, 2012

Menahan Street Band / The Crossing Thomas Brenneck of the Menahan Street Band says it best, "The Crossing is music to an unreleased Sergio Leone western starring the Wu Tang set in 1992."

Frankenweenie Unleashed! // Various Artist

Released 10.5.12 Walt Disney Records

Danny Elfman does an indie-pop packed soundtrack for the black and white stop motion remake by Tim Burton of his 1984 short film by the same name. It's cute and expected, but with a few tracks not to miss.
