Eagles singer releases his first solo album in 15 years.

1. Don HenleyDon Henley’s fifth album is more than a return to form. Recorded in Nashville, Cass County is a celebration of his Americana roots and influences. Henley covers The Louvin Brothers and Tift Merritt. He’s also joined by friends like Mick Jagger, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride. –Eric Shea

CURATOR’S DISCOVERY

Discover the hottest new sound of soul with Louisville’s Bryson Tiller.
2. Bryson Tiller
The infectious tone of bass drops and sensual vocals creates a seductive combination of R&B and trap on T R A P S O U L. Can this young man revive the soul of the South? Creating a signature vibe some have called RnBass, Tiller is the next voice. –J Boogie

 

Julia Holter hints at fresh commercial territory beyond her established niche.

4. Julia HolterOn Have You In My Wilderness, Julia Holter corrals the capricious art-song inclinations of previous releases into something more recognizably pop. Check the engaging elaborate vocal melodies of songs like “Feel You” and “Silhouette,” set to shuffling patterns of strings, harpsichord and ambient noises – taking a beautifully picturesque route. –Michelle Solomon

Behold the ragged glory of the Dead.

Grateful Dead
No point in wasting words trying to make converts. You’re either on the bus or you’re off the bus. But if you’re on the bus, Grateful Dead’s new 50th anniversary collection 30 Trips Around the Sun beautifully distills the “for fanatics only” 80-disc box set into a manageable slice of pure Dead heaven. –Diego Gonzalez

Dungen keeps blowing minds.

5. DungenBefore Tame Impala, the neo-psychedelia crown was held by Dungen, essentially the project of Stockholm-based Gustav Ejstes, whose 2004 release Ta Det Lungt remains an apex of hallucinatory, timeless beauty. Dungen’s seventh album Allas sak (“Everybody’s Thing”) doesn’t surprise, but is rich with subtle touches like flutes and piano, led as always by thrilling, propulsive guitar. –Party Ben

The surprisingly sumptuous sound of Spectre!

6. Sam SmithWriting’s On The Wall” is the Bond theme Sam Smith must have been waiting his whole life to write. It’s a beautifully Bondian torch song that harkens back to the classic John Barry era of Bond scores. It’s moody, emotional and dramatic, with sixties-style strings, soaring, symphonic swells, and Smith’s aching, crystalline falsetto. –Andee Connors

Sophomore slump dodged by a mile.

7. Golden VoidBay Area psychedelic rockers Golden Void made an arresting introduction with their 2012 eponymous debut. Berkana not only picks up where that left off, but it advances with the uncanny chemistry of a supergroup (boasting members of Earthless, Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound and Roots of Orchis) taut from touring and ripe with innovation. –Eric Shea *Also note that a Pandora employee plays in Golden Void.

    “Writing’s On The Wall” is just classic. Perhaps the best Bond Theme Song starring Daniel Craig.

    I don't know where to go to contact pandora, but you should totally add more J-pop, Vocaloid, and Wrock music! Especially Gred and Forge, The Parselmouths, The Band in a Horcrux, and Draco and the Malfoys. thank you.
