Bonny Light Horseman - Rolling Golden Holy

Bonny Light Horseman's self-titled debut was a folk masterclass, reimagining centuries-old standards with effortless grace and wonder. Those Grammy-nominated, list- topping recordings not only suggested renewed possibilities for aging songbooks but also marked the arrival of a trio fully capable of reorienting the wider folk landscape. Still, if it felt at all like the work of some short-lived supergroup or a one-off diversion (it never was), Rolling Golden Holy rebuffs the notion with preternatural beauty and charm, and imagination. These songs, all originals, follow the paths of the traditional tunes the band cherishes to new frontiers, the sounds and situations of history given the gravity and shape of now. This is a band working at the edge of modern folk.

Train - AM Gold

Writing songs is hard. Not compared to so many things I suppose, but it's difficult to create something that you love and then other people love as well. Writing songs for two and a half years in front of video screens instead of being in the presence of other humans has been a long, strange trip. And now here we are," Train frontman Pat Monahan shares. "It has to start with love. Love that goes into work comes out of work. We love this album and our fans. Thank you for waiting so long for us. I think it was worth it. AM Gold! Here we go!

GWAR - New Dark Ages

THE NEW DARK AGES "The New Dark Ages" album concept is tied to a companion graphic novel "GWAR In The Duoverse of Absurdity", in which the band are sucked off into an alternate universe to do battle with their evil twins and the specter of rogue technology. Our heroes floorboard it through a kaleidoscope of hard driving heavy metal, and rock-n-f***ing roll, building on their hilarious mythos, introducing cool new characters, and cataloging mankind's hapless abandonment of their passions, rituals, and beliefs.
