Music

The McMakens: Sleep Easy

The gorgeous, eclectic debut from Chicago husband-and-wife duo the McMakens jumps from traditional folk to '90s-throwback chick-rock to alt-country to weird jazz-chamber fusion, channeling the Americana of Hem and Over the Rhine but establishing a sound all its own.

Music

Mary Gauthier: The Foundling

A song cycle about Gauthier's search for the birth mother who abandoned her at an orphanage in New Orleans. It's less gloomy than you'd think and surprisingly universal.

Music

Breathe Owl Breathe: Magic Central

Quirky workhorse indie-folk band land a cut above contemporaries like Horse Feathers and Bowerbirds in this engaging and unique label debut.

Music

Ben Sollee & Daniel Martin Moore: Dear Companion

Two young Kentucky natives collaborate with producer Yim Yames to protest mountaintop removal coal mining. Don't worry--it's much prettier than that sounds.
