Pop / Rock

Cliffie Sawn “Memories Come True” LP (Drag City) Previously known as Lights. Sophia Knapp and Linnea Vedder sing with the voices of angels dragged through Nashville and Laurel Canyon in the ’70s.

Junior Boys “It’s All True” CD (Domino) Their 4th album.
McCartney, Paul “McCartney” CD (Hear Music) Recorded within months of the Beatles official breakup, this has aged really well. Up there with “Ram” in terms of light yet charming pop music.
McCartney, Paul “McCartney II” CD (Hear Music) A seriously underrated record, this one is from 1980 when Paul was definitely smoking maximum amounts of weed. There’s a happy-isolationist quality to the proceedings that gives it a pretty unique feel. Plus hearing the ex-Beatle sing in a variety of falsettos over a bed of Arp synths and tape-sped drum fills is utterly amazing. Now remastered with a bonus disc of tracks that will leave you laughing and confused… in a good way.
Neil Young “A Treasure” CD (Reprise) 12-track live album, includes songs (5 of which are previously unreleased) recorded during Young’s 1984 and 1985 U.S. tours.
