Gutbucket: A Modest Proposal

The primary interest of this music lies in the rampant juxtaposition of styles, themes, moods, rhythms, and melodies, all very much chosen on purpose and carefully planned out along the way.

Novalima: Coba Coba

You can dance to it on your feet or in your head, but either way, this collision of folklore and technology is contagious and irresistible.

Lars Horntveth: Kaleidoscopic

The second solo album from the young Norwegian leader of Jaga Jazzist is best suited for listeners attuned to its subtlety and lush, string-rich orchestral sound.

Burning Spear: Jah Is Real

Burning Spear's roots reggae, to indulge a cliche, is very much alive and true to its original colors on Jah Is Real (red, gold, and green, to be precise).

Matthew Shipp Trio: The Multiplication Table

High drama, stoked by tension and channeled through unpredictable shifts in course, is ultimately what makes this music most compelling.
