It’s been a pretty rocking year already for album releases, and seeing as we’re at the halfway point of 2012 the time is ripe for a short reflection. We’ve selected 3 of the records you simply must get your greasy mitts on.
Jack White- “Blunderbuss”
Smoke screens of Hammond organ and slashes of angry guitar make White’s solo debut a classic.
Tedeschi Trucks Band- “Everybody’s Talkin’ “
It tiptoes between blues chaos and hyper jazz control, and is utterly absorbing from beginning to end.
John Mayer- “Born and Raised”
Mayer’s fifth studio record is him at his most open and honest- wound up in gentle flourishes of country and Americana.
Regina Spektor- “What We Saw From The Cheap Seats”
