CURATOR’S CHOICE

Hampton Yount is more than Bearable.

Most comedians wouldn’t burn their best joke Hampton Yount20 minutes into an album, but Hampton Yount isn’t most comedians. His sophomore album is filled with unpredictable jokes that cast George Washington as a fictional character and Asperger’s as a dating technique. Bonus: Per Yount’s Twitter, his album also syncs perfectly with The Wizard of Oz. (Kelly Anneken)

“El Amor y El Desamor”

With Hasta La Raíz, Natalia Lafourcade delivers her most Natalia-Lafourcadedeveloped artistic vision to date, in what plays out as a bold, revealing and wholly sincere album. Heart wrenching at times, in Lafourcade’s lament exists moments of hope and stubborn optimism, all anchored by the nostalgic familiarity of her tone and a succession of impressive arrangements. (Marcos Juarez)

 

Dwight Yoakam’s title-track from his upcoming 15th studio album Second Dwight YoakumHand Heart finds the Kentucky native infusing barbed pop hooks into the Bakersfield sound.

Country-Elvis is back with an infectiously catchy new single! The magic here is tangled in his penchant for contrasting a lovelorn narrative about an expired relationship with uplifting melodies and crystalline guitars that twang and jangle. (Eric Shea)

 

On Gliss Riffer, Dan Deacon layers thousands of sounds into a bizarrely powerful mix of indie dance and process music.Dan Deacon

Some thoughts come to mind while listening to Gliss Riffer: this is not background music; it’s silly, creative and is probably what your hipper-than-thou valedictorian niece listens to while drinking PBR and crocheting. Riff on Dan, riff on… (Chris Horgan)

 

A hushed and haunting rumination on love and loss from this indie balladeer.

On Sufjan Stevenshis first full length in five years, Sufjan Stevens returns to the folky sound of his earlier records. Carrie & Lowell delivers a heart rending song suite of pastoral melancholia and faded musical memories that invite comparisons to Simon And Garfunkel, Elliott Smith and Iron & Wine. (Andee Connors)

 

Canadian electro-pop goddess Grimes gifts her fans a “new” track.

Recorded in Grimes2013 following the success of her breakthrough album Visions, “REALiTi” – along with an entire album’s worth of new songs – was scrapped and then unearthed during a tour in Asia. Pulsing and breezy, the Grimes of the Visions-era has returned with some of her best work. (Michelle Solomon)

Musicologist

I dig all things ‘60s: garage punk, obscure psych, Stax and Motown soul stompers. My first CD purchases were REM’s Out of Time and Boyz II Men’s Cooleyhighharmony. I still own both! I’m pretty much immersed in music – hitting up local record shops, catching live shows at crusty dives, and DJing around town at various venues and bars.
