Sonny Landreth’s unique spin on guitar playing has made him legendary. He combines the slide with fretted notes; this finger picking technique helps him create a complex, multi-layered sound onstage. Along the way Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category- blurring musical excursions. The album Recorded Live in Lafayette is a perfect showcase of Landreth’s talents and skills; disc one contains a full acoustic set and disc two his full electric set.

Lost Balloons are Jeff Burke (Radioactivity, Marked Men, etc etc) and Yusuke Okada (of Japan’s incredible Suspicious Beasts). Texas and Japan team up for a trans-Pacific, 2 man summertime pop explosion. The 2 play all the instruments (although there is a live lineup as well) and split singing/songwriting duties. This is their 2nd album, following 2015’s self-titled debut. Hey Summer works fantastically well as an album, meant to be listened to from start-to-finish.

Not Even Happiness is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Julie Byrne. The album was recorded and mixed in Byrne’s hometown of Buffalo, New York, except for string arrangements by Jake Falby, which were recorded at a cabin in Holderness, New Hampshire. Her new album has the lucidity and tactility of a healing crystal. Not unlike Phil Elverum, she paints sublime, awestruck moments when simple things become overwhelming. The album is labeled as a contemporary folk release. According to Ed Nash of The Line of Best Fit, Not Even Happiness features leitmotifs of “nature and matters of the heart”.

Dawn Angeliqué Richard, the daughter of Chocolate Milk percussionist and vocalist Frank Richard, known professionally as Dawn Richard or D∆WN, is an American singer-songwriter, actress and animator. “Redemption” is her fourth studio album. Upon its release, Redemption received widespread acclaim from critics. Tara Joshi of Quietus stated “It’s orchestral, it’s odd, it’s experimental, it’s ornate, it makes you want to dance, it makes you want to swoon – at its heart Redemption is reflective of so many touchstones of black music from the past 30 years or so. It feels odd to say what Richard is doing is still perhaps too niche to get her a place in the R&B ‘Hot 100’, given her sound is so broad and all-encompassing, but its true. Richard has carved out an ambitiously futuristic place for herself that the mainstream hasn’t quite caught up with yet”.
