- •WOVENHANDStar Treatment (2016) • You're going to be seeing a lot of this album around here.
- •THE JAYHAWKSHollywood Town Hall (1992) • This is usually the one I recommend to people if they're unfamiliar with the band.
- •DAN SARTAINToo Tough to Live (2012) • 13 songs, 19 minutes and just a roaring good time without a second wasted. He's my favorite local musician though he tours the world opening for the likes of The White Stripes, Gogol Bordello, The Dirtbombs, etc.
- •LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZOShaka Zulu (1987) • Gorgeous a capella music from this small South African men's choir.
- •GHOSTPopestar (2016) • Four song EP by the theatrical Swedish metal band.
- •DUNGENAllas Sak (2015) • One of my favorite albums of 2015. Imagine a trippier, more laid back Tame Impala singing in Swedish. (They've been around much longer than Tame Impala though.)
