Peach — Peachy-P


Rock

Matt Carney
Get it? “Peachy-P”? As in, “Peach EP”? Well, I thought it was kinda funny.

Stoney LaRue — Velvet


Music

Matt Carney

You know you’re listening to a Red Dirt — not a country, or worse, pop-country — album, when a song called “Dresses” hits you in the gut with the lyric “You recklessly abandon me / That’s just the way you are.”

Snow Patrol — Fallen Empires

Techno-fueled nostalgia trip starts strong, but loses momentum after a run-in with oversentimentality.


Indie

Jonathan Davis
Its first record in two years, "Fallen Empires" blends Snow Patrol's specific brand of thoughtful pop-rock with some electronic influences.

Carter Sampson — Mockingbird Sing

This displaced Okie can belt.


Country

Matt Carney
Carter Sampson’s voice and subject matter are too sweet to get lumped in with those rough ’n’ tumble Red Dirt boys, but instrumentally, her “Mockingbird Sing” isn’t far off.

Independence 76 — Magpie Parables


Folk

Matt Carney
It’s been a long while since I’ve heard a work of Americana as sprawling and ambitious as Independence 76’s debut album, Magpie Parables.
