This edition takes on a very strong dance and hip-hop feel with new releases from Jamiroquai, Goldfrapp, Talaboman, and Gorillaz. Also included are Mark Lanegan (formerly of Screaming Trees), Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys), and Saxophone virtuoso, Colin Stetson.
I highly recommend the new record, Whiteout Conditions, by The New Pornographers. They continue a long run of consistently excellent work with this release. With their lyrically clever, musically interesting and infectious sound, they’ve produced an excellent body of work to date. I also recommend looking into the solo releases of the various members. Especially that of A.C. Newman, Neko Case and Kathryn Calder.
