1. Charles Bradley - Changes
    Charles Bradley is a 67 year old soul singer who found success late in life. He sings real 70s soul, and has a voice like a screaming eagle. This record is incredible!
  2. Vijay Iyer and Wadada Leo Smith - A Cosmic Rhythm with Each Stroke
    Beautiful avant-garde Jazz. I don't go for the really crazy free jazz, and luckily this record doesn't veer into that territory. It has structure while still throwing enough weirdness in to make it special.
  3. Death Index - Death Index
    This is a collaboration between Carson Cox from the Merchandise, and Italian hardcore musician Marco Rapisarda. It's an arty punk rock record along the lines of The Birthday Party or Suicide. Very cool.
