- Ryley Walker – Deafman Glance – On this one, he leaves a lot of the pastoral 70s folk sound behind and takes up the more experimental sounds of John Fahey and those that followed him, like Gastr Del Sol, et al. Still great stuff.

- Paul Simon – In The Blue Light – He pulled some of the deep cuts from past albums and re-did them with very soft, mellow and spare instrumentation, leaving his voice and lyrics up front. I like to think of it as a recording of him doing a show at a very small club with a new band. Like, it’s not the official Paul Simon show, it’s just a bit of him fooling around with his songs for the fun of it.

- The J Geils Band – The Morning After. Classic 70s white-guy R&B. They were a hell of a band.
J Geils Band – Looking for a Love
- The Internet – Hive Mind Overall, it’s not quite as catchy as their last record, but I find myself listening to it every day anyway. I really dig that funky super-compressed guitar that shows up on most songs.

- Interpol – The Marauder. Keeping up that spiky gothy thing they’ve always been so good at.
