Gustav Mahler's masterpiece Das Lied von der Erde (Song of the Earth) has always been subtitled as a Symphony for Tenor and Alto (or Baritone) and traditionally two voices have sung the six movements of the work. However Jonas Kaufmann felt differently about this and decided to sing both parts himself. This is the first time that one voice has sung both parts for a recording of this piece.

The debut album of the acclaimed London-born, Paris-based singer, songwriter and pianist Benjamin Clementine.

The title says it all: the six young jazz musicians featured here represented the best of the best from the Detroit area, although all were based in New York City by the time this was recorded in 1960. Saxophonist Pepper Adams and trumpeter Donald Byrd coaxed great performances and memorable solos from the band, most notably from guitarist Kenny Burrell and bassist Paul Chambers.

The Districts' third full-length, Popular Manipulations, and it's a significant leap forward for the band. The Districts turn the mundane into bombastic epics, the commonplace into life-affirming anthems. Not unlike fellow Philadelphians The War on Drugs, The Districts strive for an earnest grandiosity devoid of winks, irony, or a sly grin. This is rock and roll like they used to do, full of big sounds and gut-punching melodies. Their third LP—and second for Fat Possum—Popular Manipulations will make you want to punch a hole through a wall while maintaining a toothy grin.

Rattle & Roar is the second album from Grammy-winners the Earls of Leicester, a band formed in tribute to legendary bluegrass artists Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. The group is a realization of veteran Dobro player Jerry Douglas who assembled a bluegrass dream team of five other accomplished Nashville musicians on guitars, banjos, mandolins and fiddles. Rattle & Roar contains 17 timeless favourites from the Flatt and Scruggs songbook, maintaining the same emotional authenticity, instrumental expertise and vibrant creative spirit that made the original versions such enduring classics.

More than two decades into a career that's always avoided the predictable path, the Mavericks, whose Tex-Mex twang, Cuban-influenced country and retro rock made them unlikely stars in the mid-'90s and critical darlings during later years, turn another corner, focusing instead on a Latin and country-influenced version of Rock & Roll's early days. Brand New Day heralds the first album from the Mavericks released on the band's own record label Mono Mundo; the diverse songs reflect a newfound freedom that allowed the group members to do everything on their own terms.
