Part of Björk's Live DVD series, Vessel presents live performances and short films from her Debut-era material, as directed by Stephane Sednouai, who also shot her video for "Venus as a Boy." The disc begins with an impressionistic mix of performances and interviews with Björk that seem a little precious nearly a decade on, especially considering how much her work and persona have grown since 1994…

The indie darling transitions to R&B with spectacular results on Chapters. Early in her career, the Malaysian singer/songwriter made a splash with diary-like songs about identity and growth. This album finds her locked in an R&B groove, with guests like Usher (“Crush”) and Jhené Aiko (“Used to Love You”). Yuna's warm voice is a comforting vessel on slow jams like “Mannequin” and “Lanes.” It’s been a minute since Malaysian artist Yuna has released an album stateside. For fans still living off of the ephemeral high of her previous LP, the underrated 2013 gem Nocturnal, you’d recall that the onetime aspiring lawyer cut her teeth on a particular space and sound in music: an eclectic mix of indie pop and folk tunes that came off as a mixture of Sia and Coldplay wrapped in one pop package. But in February, Yuna reemerged with “Places To Go”, a DJ Premier-produced banger with an overt hip-hop bent. It was a radical departure from the singer’s breezier pop offerings.

Reissue with the latest remastering. A stunning follow-up to the first Tethered Moon album from the trio of Masabumu Kikuchi on piano, Gary Peacock on bass, and Paul Motian on drums – material recorded at the same time as the first record, but with a vibe that's sometimes slightly different! As before, the acoustic tones of Kikuchi ring out strongly – with those sharper, modern edges that he first brought to play on his key albums of the 70s – but there's also almost a looser quality to some tracks, as Peacock's bass works as a strongly subtle force, as does Motian's drums – both with those special sound-shaping qualities that have made them such unique musicians. Titles include a take on Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround", plus "Little Abi", "Gaia", "True You", and "Conception Vessel".

The casual observer might be surprised that 2004's The Best of Gary Hoey does not consist of a bunch of Christmas music culled from his Ho! Ho! Hoey albums, but as this 18-track collection proves, there's more to the high-riding guitar virtuoso than chop-laden versions of seasonal classics. There are also covers of classic oldies like "Low Rider," "Wipeout," "Linus and Lucy," Pink Floyd's "Money," "Misirlou," and "Frankenstein," along with a bunch of original material that functions as a vessel for Hoey's relentless playing…

This CD is the soundtrack to Drawing Restraint 9, a film by Matthew Barney with music and score composed by Bjork. Representing the 1st creative collaboration of 2 of the most protean, dynamic forces in music and fine art, this CD is a captivating and engrossing visual and sonic experience. The soundtrack primarily orients itself around the traditional music of Japan. Collaborations with electronic producers including Mark Bell, Valgeir Sigursson, and Leila, plus a guest appearance from Will Oldham, provide a counterpoint to the ancient instruments and compositions. The CD side includes the complete soundtrack.
An unconventional and somewhat challenging soundtrack to the work of a singularly strange filmmaker, Bjork's score for her partner Matthew Barney's DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 takes the Icelandic performer's already adventurous aesthetic to new extremes While a few tracks featuring Bjork (or, in the case of "Gratitude," Will Oldham) on vocals vaguely resemble her more pop-friendly outings, much of this album is steeped in avant-garde atmospherics that include lilting harp passages (the aforementioned "Gratitude"), ominous brass interludes ("Hunter Vessel"), and even haunting Japanese Noh singing ("Holographic Entrypoint"). Although DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 may perplex some listeners, those patient enough to follow Bjork down almost any path will find plenty to appreciate here.
