Price: $14.99 (sale priced)Blues
Different Shades Of Blue (J&R Adventures) is Bonamassa's first studio album in two years and the first album of his career to feature all original material. The result is a record with more of an experimental edge than previous Bonamassa records. It s a blues record that explores the outer reaches and the many different sounds that shape the genre.'It s been a while since I've been involved in the writing on an entire album. So I decided I wanted to make a completely original blues album', said Bonamassa. 'I've really had to push myself to make everything I do better than the last project. I know the fans expect it. And I feel like I owe it to the fans to give them an original record after all these years'.To prepare for the record, Bonamassa took 2013 off from releasing any new studio material, a rarity in the tireless bluesman's career, and instead spent time in Nashville writing with Jonathan Cain (Journey), known for hits Who s Crying Now, Open Arms, and When You Love A Woman; James House (Diamond Rio, Dwight Yoakam, Martina McBride), and Jerry Flowers (Keith Urban).

Price: $13.99 (sale priced)Jazz
Bla Fleck and Abigail Washburn present their eponymous debut album as a duo, after many years of prominence as banjo players and composers in their own eclectic avenues. Bla Fleck and Abigail Washburn is a front porch banjo and vocal album of new music, Appalachian murder ballads, gospel, chamber and blues; the culmination of a yearlong tour as a duo in 2013, following the birth of their son, Juno. Bla, an icon and innovator of jazz, classical and world, with more multi-category GRAMMY wins than any other artist (15 total), and Abigail, a formidable talent with triumphs in songwriting, theater, performance, and even Chinese diplomacy by way of banjo, turn out to be quite a fortuitous pairing with a deep, distinct and satisfying outcome. The culmination is an album like no other. The record reveals their astounding chemistry as collaborators, as the two seamlessly stitch together singular banjo sounds (through an assortment of seven banjos spanning the recording) in service to the stories that their songs tell, with no studio gimmickry needed.

Price: $21.74 (sale priced)Metal / Goth
Seeing Meshuggah earlier this year on their 25th anniversary tour was one of the most satisfying concert experience of the year for me, and now I can enjoy Meshuggah from the comfort of my couch whenever I want, because Meshuggah are releasing a live DVD and BluRay of their 2013 tour which they're calling The Ophidian Trek. I know what you're saying didn't Meshuggah already release a live DVD, Alive, in 2010? To you I say, so what?! More pro-recorded live Meshuggah tracks are never a bad thing. The live audio was processed and edited by guitarist Fredrik Thordendal, mixed by Daniel Begstrand and mastered by Mats Lindfors.

PRINCEART OFFICIAL AGEReleased Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Price: $14.99 (sale priced)Soul - Funk - R & B
The solo-credited Art Official Age sounds like the work of a super-syncopated one man band, built up from the lean snap of drum machine programming and rubbery bass, overlaid with sprinkles of synth. Hooks are concocted from cleverly warped sound effects and theres plenty of space for Princes sharp rhythm guitar chinks to push and pull as his spine-tingling self-harmonised vocals clamber from slowed down low notes to that startling superhuman falsetto. The album alternates between intense slow jams and funky workouts but there is a concept of sorts, featuring Prince awakening from suspended animation into a future where enlightenment is achieved by divesting redundant notions of ego and sexism.


TWEEDYSUKIERAEReleased Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Price: $16.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
Tweedy, the band, is a collaboration between Jeff Tweedy, best known as the founder of the pioneering Chicago rock band Wilco, and his 18-year-old son and drummer Spencer Tweedy. dBpm Records in conjunction with ANTI presents Sukierae (sue-key-ray), the debut release by the aptly-monikered duo Tweedy. Sukierae features 20 new songs penned by Jeff, performed by Tweedy father and son along with a host of musical guests. 'When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing, ' Jeff said. 'Solo to me meant that I would do everything write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer's been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo. '


WEEZEREVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT IN THE ENDReleased Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Price: $13.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
Everything Will Be Alright In The End is the band s first collection of new material in four years. Since forming in 1992, Weezer has released a myriad of celebrated, chart-topping albums, selling over 13 million records worldwide. Following an intensely prolific couple years at the end of the aughts, the band chose to deliberately dial down the tempo in 2010, a move singer/guitarist Rivers Cuomo says allowed him to write at a slower pace, giving the songs he wanted to use for an album the time to gradually grow into their final forms. He started almost every song on the piano, eventually transferring them to the guitar before taking them to the band. When it came time to record the material, Weezer reunited with the man who helped them make some of their most iconic album-length work, Cars frontman Ric Ocasek.
