On their newest studio effort, Sky Is Mine, English indie rockers The Duke Spirit valiantly search for humanity within a galaxy that oftentimes is quite full of the exact opposite. The band’s mission isn’t without its detours and obstacles, however, as the latest LP track proves. Titled “Houses”, it’s steeped in an aura of reverb and psychedelia, and conjures the feeling of uncertainty and need.

​Canadian folk-rock duo Kacy & Clayton delivers endless melody and effortless cool on its upcoming album, The Siren's Song. Produced by Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, the album's nine songs often take the group into new territory by making use of full-band arrangements, but the songs are still given plenty of room to breathe and explore. The band's previous album, 2015's Strange Country, earned a spot on our editors' Favorite Folk & Americana Albums year-end list, and The Siren's Song continues to build on its promise.

Czechian Gustav Brom led one of the foremost European big bands of the 1960’s. This amazing Czechoslovakian band was rated among the top ten big bands in the world, playing festivals and concerts throughout Europe, India, and Cuba. Most of the pieces are by the band members, just one more reason why this was such a tight-knit group. Lypso swings with strong tenor and trumpet solos. On Dedicated to Eric a medium-tempo melody alternates with somber sustained chords and impressive baritone and trumpet solos.

Despite singing together since they were old enough to talk, it took a lifetime for sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer to record together. United by blood, growing up in the backwoods of Alabama and sharing an unspeakable tragedy – they witnessed their father take their mother's life and then his own – their coming together on Not Dark Yet was perhaps inevitable, but it wasn't easy. The pair did a celebrated tour together in 2010 and tried to write a collective album afterwards. They ended up abandoning that project, but not the desire to collaborate.

The Unknown Russia: “For me it has been a great joy to conceive and record the programme featured on this album. The idea that inspired it was twofold: on the one hand, it is made up of variation cycles (with the exception of the Rondo brillante on a theme from Bellini’s opera ‘I Capuletti ed i Montecchi’).

Haydn, Heidn, Hayden… the man beneath the score is often elusive. Yet, his presence is constant and vivid in his music, as his scores speak to us personally and freshly.

Heinrich Isaac’s “Missa Virgo prudentissima” stands out as a very rare work in the panorama of the Ordinary settings composed at the turn of the sixteenth century. Its monumental sound, linked to the six-voice texture - mostly used for timbral variety, but occasionally for fullness of sound - the imaginative use of its cantus firmus, and its mature and sure contrapuntal writing make it one of the most successful works by the Flemish master.
