NORAH JONES – PICK ME UP...

Norah Jones didn't mean to make another album. After she finished touring 2016's Day Breaks — her beloved return to piano‐based jazz — she walked away from the well‐worn album cycle grind and into an unfamiliar territory without boundaries: a series of short sessions with an ever‐changing array of collaborators resulting in a diverse stream of singles (with Mavis Staples, Rodrigo Amarante, Thomas Bartlett, Tarriona Tank Ball, and more). Pick Me Up Off The Floor features collaborators from Brian Blade to Jeff Tweedy, and grew out of her acclaimed singles series of the past 2 years as the songs she hadn’t yet released unexpectedly congealed into an album of tremendous depth and beauty connected by the sly groove of her piano trios, lyrics that confront loss and portend hope, and a mood that leans into darkness before ultimately finding the light. Just as this set of songs blurs sonic colors (blues, soul, Americana, and various shades of jazz) ...

NEIL YOUNG – HOMEGROWN

CELEBRATE NEIL YOUNG’S LEGENDARY LOST ALBUM, HOMEGROWN Neil Young puts it best: “This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time”.

The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased - “Separate Ways,” “Try,” “Mexico,” “Kansas,” We Don’t Smoke It No More,” “Vacancy” and “Florida” (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of “Love Is A Rose,” “Homegrown,” “White Line, “Little Wing,” and “Star Of Bethlehem” – different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums.

MT. JOY – REARRANGE US

Mt. Joy’s star rose quickly from a bedroom project to a well-oiled machine dubbed “your new folk-rock heroes” by Rolling Stone upon the 2018 release of their self-titled debut record. That same year and beyond, millions of streams piled up month after month, and sold-out crowds sang along to every song and grew in number with every tour and festival stop they made. Their highly anticipated sophomore album Rearrange Us is sonically rich and expansive; producer Tucker Martine, known for his work on seminal albums by My Morning Jacket and Modest Mouse, widened Mt. Joy’s sound, and allows the growing sophistication of the songwriting and the arrangements to really shine. Mt. Joy is poised to be the indie breakout act of 2020.
