Danny Brown

About the artist:

Danny Brown is a Detroit MC who embraced his unique hood/hipster personality, took full advantage of social media, and — fueled by his experiences with drug dealing and drug taking, as well as a wicked sense of humor — delivered some of the most vivid and side-splitting rhymes of his era. Brown (real last name: Sewell) surfaced during the mid-2000s as a member of Reser’vor Dogs. The group advanced far enough to get the attention of the Roc-A-Fella label; a deal was not struck, but an A&R rep assisted Brown with the recording and release of a mixtape, Detroit State of Mind. New York recording sessions placed him in the company of several contemporaries, including G-Unit’s Tony Yayo. In 2010, Yayo and Brown released Hawaiian Snow, while Brown also released The Hybrid, among other mixtapes, such as additional volumes of the Detroit State of Mind series. While it was rumored that Brown would be signing to G-Unit, label head 50 Cent allegedly balked due to the rapper’s fashion sense (including a preference for skinny jeans). Brown eventually linked with the Fool’s Gold label, where he issued XXX, his highest-profile mixtape to that point.

The Head and the Heart

About the artist:

Formed in Seattle by a group of northwestern transplants, the Head and the Heart is an indie folk band whose influences include Americana, country-rock, and classic Beatlesque pop. The lineup came together in 2009, when songwriters Jonathan Russell and Josiah Johnson met at an open mic event at Seattle’s Conor Byrne Pub. Pianist Kenny Hensley, bassist Chris Zasche, violinist Charity Rose Thielen, and former Prabir & the Substitutes drummer Tyler Williams rounded out the roster, and the Head and the Heart spent the first half of 2010 touring the Pacific Northwest before self-releasing their eponymous debut in June. By the end of the summer, they’d created enough buzz in the Pacific Northwest to entertain offers from several record labels, eventually signing with Sub Pop that Fall and reissuing their album — this time with remastered tracks and one new song — in early 2011

Black Out Days

By

Phantogram

About the artist:

Phantogram is an electronic rock duo from upstate New York whose music incorporates psychedelic pop vocals, J Dilla-style hip-hop beats, and shoegazing sensibility. Founded in 2007 and based in Saratoga Springs, NY, the duo is comprised of longtime friends Josh Carter (guitar, vocals) and Sarah Barthel (keyboards, vocals), who originally hail from the nearby small town of Greenwich, NY. Originally known as Charlie Everywhere and associated with the local independent label Sub-Bombin Records, the duo released the eponymous Phantogram EP in March 2009 and sparked widespread interest with two songs in particular, “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small.” Phantogram subsequently released the Running from the Cops EP in May 2009 on the international label BBE Records. The duo finally made its full-length album debut with Eyelid Movies (2010), an 11-track album featuring the four previously released EP songs “Mouthful of Diamonds,” “When I’m Small,” “Running from the Cops,” and “Bloody Palms.” The album was released internationally by BBE Records, domestically by Barsuk Records, and on vinyl by Ghostly International. The duo returned in late 2011 with the Nightlife EP, which sold enough to hit the lower reaches of the U.S. charts.

Personal Jesus

By

Johnny Cash

About the artist:

Johnny Cash’s fourth project with producer Rick Rubin continues on the same path as many of their previous releases: Cash’s warm and rumbling baritone over minimal production and gentle duets with some surprising guests. One of the things that sets American IV: The Man Comes Around apart from the others is Cash’s song selections. The success he experienced with his previous interpretations of contemporary songwriters (Soundgarden’s “Rusty Cage,” Nick Cave’s “The Mercy Seat”) is applied to this album with varying degrees of success. His throaty reading of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” easily fits into his “Man in Black” persona, and the spiritual conviction underlying Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” is certainly powerful. Unfortunately, the inclusion of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” (featuring a lost-sounding Fiona Apple) and a passionless snooze through the Beatles’ “In My Life” should have been so much stronger (given the subject matter of both songs and Cash’s prolific life story). One of the reasons his previous covers were so successful is that in the past he had chosen some pretty obscure songs (Bonnie Prince Billy’s “I See a Darkness” and Beck’s “Rowboat,” to name a couple) and reinterpreted them with his unique perspective and unmistakable voice. However, there is really no need to hear his versions of the Irish standard “Danny Boy” or the clunky rendition of Sting’s “I Hung My Head,” since something about them just doesn’t fit — either Cash wasn’t entirely comfortable with the song or the performance was never fully realized. Luckily, the new songs Cash wrote for the album are pretty strong, and his cover of the standard “We’ll Meet Again” is among the best versions of the song ever recorded. It is a relief to hear that, although Cash’s voice is clearly older and not the booming powerhouse it was in the earlier Sun and Columbia days, he’s still got some punch left in him, and the wisdom he’s gained in his later life seeps through between the grooves, revealing a man who has lived through it all and lived to tell the tale. [American IV was also released with a bonus DVD featuring the award-winning video for “Hurt.”]
