Galactic - Carnivale Electricos CD - It's incredible that GALACTIC has never made a carnival album yet, but now it's here.
Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds - Pound of Dirt CD - Brooklyn's own Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds deliver an eclectic and timeless mix of gritty blues, soul, funk and garage rock. Led by the dynamic, soulful and sexy Arleigh Kincheloe and her brother Jackson on harmonica, SSDB are one of the must see live acts of 2012.
Carolina Chocolate Drops - Leaving Eden CD - North Carolina-based Carolina Chocolate Drops follow up their critically lauded label debut--2010's Grammy Award-winning Genuine Negro Jig, which reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers and Folk Charts--with Leaving Eden.
Caravan of Thieves - Funhouse CD - Channeling pop bliss through their trademark lock-tight, turn-of-the-century, bang out a beat on anything that can take it approach, The Funhouse, (operative word: fun) which is soon-to-be-released on United For Opportunity, is exemplary of a band on the high road to musical perfection. The listener closes their eyes and can taste the bacchanalia and join the fete. Tunes like "Raise The Dead," the record's single, drive the point home with impressive lift, powered by soaring crescendos and inspired gang vocals, not to mention a lyric that invites the deceased to join in the fun. "Mexico" is a dark road ramble that will, at the very least, make you wanna dance around the room, if not run off yourself. "Candy" betrays the writer's addiction to the sweet confections that sounds like Vaudeville, but feels like The Beatles' "Savoy Truffle." And on it goes, the perfect soundtrack for your trip through the tunnel and into the light. If this album can't raise the dead, nothing will. (Features Fuzz from Deep Banana Blackout and Big Fuzz!)
SOJA - Strength To Survive CD - Highly-anticipated 2012 release produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, O.A.R). SOJA is an international touring machine having rocked theaters in more than 15 countries around the world. In the past year and a half alone, they've played more than 360 dates, on large headline dates in addition to tours opening for acts like O.A.R,, Dave Matthews Band and Matisyahu.
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad- Country CD - With this release, the quintet has charted new territory and put together a lyrically-driven roots Americana album. Combining acoustic instrumentation including slide guitar, banjo, harmonica, upright piano, percussion, and bass, the album showcases songs as they were first created: on the road, riding in the van, and jamming backstage. The production of Country taps into that spontaneous rhythm, allowing the music to wash over listeners like a conversation between old friends.
