Music of the Moment for June 2015:

Close Up Needle on Record

May 30, 2015 - 6:00 am

5 brand new releases we can’t wait to share with you this month:

1. Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell  The Traveling Kind  (Nonesuch) – Musical kin and friends for over 40 years, it’s not surprising these Americana icons sound so good together. Their 2nd collaboration feels as comfortable as your favorite piece of clothing.

Recorded live in six days, in the empty halls prior to their evening performance, the album captures all the inspiration and emotion of the moment. Often compared to the Everly Brothers or Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Monterey tells the too-true and often melancholy stories they’ve uncovered on the road. Just the album for easing your time spent on the road too.

3. Hiatus Kaiyote  Choose Your Weapon  (Flying Buddha/Sony) – The sound of Hiatus Kaiyote is instantly recognizable, largely due to the lissome vocals of Nai Palm. Her enlightened style taps contemporary soul, jazz, and catawampus worldbeats,
