Piñataland — Hymns for the Dreadful Night

Beautiful arrangements, skilled players and excellent production. What more could you want?


Indie

Stephen Carradini
As a newly minted music producer, I’m now professionally invested in the way that recordings sound (which means I have even more distaste for the intentionally terrible recordings of the San Francisco garage-rock scene).

Wilco – The Whole Love

Wilco’s relevant again!


Indie

Matt Carney
As far as Wilco albums go, 1999’s “Summerteeth” and 2004’s “A Ghost Is Born,” are two of the band’s most beloved, but rarely by the same fans. The former, the group’s third full-length, is a joyful romp of Americana indie rock and pop, bubbling along on a turgid undercurrent of relational struggle, drug abuse and loneliness.

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.
