Neilson Hubbard: Why Men Fail

Happydeadmen, After the Siesta

This quartet from a small burgh in Sweden is relentlessly jangly even though they often pen ironically maudlin lyrics.

Don Henley: Inside Job

Haystak: Car Fulla White Boys

Jessie Mae Hemphill: Feelin’ Good

Listening to Jessie Mae Hemphill is to experience almost completely pure unvarnished blues. Her music is steeped in her natural familiarity with the ancient roots of Mississippi Hill country traditions while she improvised rhythmically and lyrically to contemporize her sound.

Hagans, Animation Imagination

The John Hart Trio: Indivisible

From the magnificent Hep label, a guitar trio session that can take a while to get into, individual from folksy to hard rocky, improvised music and melodic sense that needs and repays concentrated listening.

Hot Stove Jimmy: Theme For a Major Hit

As ska moved from Jamaican soul music to American homogenized banality, bands like Hot Stove Jimmy interceded and saved ska from itself.

Hakim: Yaho

Goo: Elements

Gomez: Liquid Skin

Golden Delicious: Live at the Laurelthirst

Groove Armada: Vertigo

Guy: III

Gomez: Machismo EP

Ghostface Killah: Supreme Cliente

Put down those early ‘90s Miami bass 12"s you’ve been eyeing in the cut-out bin, and buy the present and future of hip-hop.

The Generators: Tyranny

Gameface: Always On

Gay Dad, Leisure Noise

Grand Theft Audio: Blame Everyone

Grand Tourism: self-titled

Stephane Grappelli, Live

Frog Holler: Idiots

Fonda: The Strange and the Familiar
