Emile Haynie – Falling Apart

emilehaynie

If accomplished producer Emile Haynie’s latest single only featured a guest appearance from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, that would be a big enough deal. If it only featured a guest appearance from Brian Wilson, that would be an even bigger deal. So the fact that both vocalists can be heard on Falling Apart is downright amazing.

Even the Snow Turns Blue: An Over the Rhine Christmas Compilation

overtherhine

Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist seem to really like Christmas. They’ve released several Christmas albums over the years as Over the Rhine, with their latest (Blood Oranges in the Snow) hitting shelves last month. That said, it doesn’t mean the husband-and-wife duo whitewash the holiday season like many musicians. Instead, Blood Oranges is what they’ve decided to call “reality Christmas” music.

Even the Snow Turns Blue gives a nice sampling of Over the Rhine’s various Christmas offerings, from the more traditional to the incredibly personal. Consider it an early Christmas present from us to you.

Matthew Ryan – We Lit a Fire

Matthew Ryan recorded his latest album with a pretty hefty supporting cast, and it shows. Boxers features the work of Kevin Salem, The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, Brian Bequette and Joe Magistro of Black Crowes fame. It’s also the tiniest bit of a departure from recent records in that his 13th LP is an all-out rock and roll affair.

We Lit a Fire is a five-song sampler that showcases the range of Boxers and the punch it displays, both musically and lyrically.
