  • Recorded during the T Bone Burnett–produced sessions for Rhiannon Giddens's highly acclaimed solo debut, Tomorrow Is My Turn, the five-song vinyl EP Factory Girl includes songs written or made famous by musical heroes Ethel Waters and Sister Rosetta Tharp; a song co-written by Giddens; a traditional Gaelic mouth music tune; and the title track, a traditional Irish song for which Giddens wrote additional lyrics. "It's a clutch of tunes that work together like the cards in a winning poker hand," says the New York Times. "Her accompaniment … points to an ageless gold standard for American roots music." "Deftly curated, gorgeously sung," says NPR, "this EP is America."

  • This limited-edition 10" six-song recording by The Arcs, entitled The Arcs vs. The Inventors Vol. I, featuring Dr. John and David Hidalgo, is the first in a series of collaborative "Inventors" recordings to come. "Sometimes the best way to see into the future is to study the past," says Dan Auerbach. "In this series we do both, collaborating with folks who have been in the game a long time but instead of rehashing old material, we collaborate on new works, explore new ideas and introduce each other to a different generational perspective."

  • Natalie Merchant’s Paradise Is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings features new recordings of the beloved songs of her multi-platinum solo debut album, Tigerlily, as they have evolved over two decades of live performance. The new release is accompanied by a documentary DVD: a memoir-style film containing live performances, archival footage, and interviews with musicians, friends, and fans about the influence these songs have had over 20 years. MOJO, in a four-star review, says: "Time has only amplified the power of Merchant’s music."

  • This worldwide cultural phenomenon, a 1997 Grammy winner, co-produced by Ry Cooder, helped to introduce Cuba’s rich musical heritage and pre-revolutionary past to the world. For this vinyl reissue from World Circuit, the studio recordings have been cut from the original analogue half-inch tapes and mastered by Bernie Grundman (engineer of the original release), and pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. Housed in a gatefold sleeve, the LPs are presented alongside a 20-page booklet include a digital download.

  • Brad Mehldau's 10 Years Solo Live, an eight-LP vinyl box set, is culled from live recordings made over a decade of the pianist's European solo concerts and "contains some of the most impressive pianism he has captured on record," says the New York Times. He is "a player with a stunning virtuosity and daring ability to mine far reaches of improvisation," raves All About Jazz. This is "a beautiful release/box from a unique pianist who continually shows what the piano can do." "Brad Mehldau is a magician," exclaims Record Collector. "Hearing the pianist in full flow during a live performance is ... nothing less than an awe-inspiring experience."

  • St Germain, whose albums Boulevard and Tourist originated a genre of French electronic music, returns with his first album in 15 years, and it's "well worth the wait," says the Independent. The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to his sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. "The result," says NPR: "a timeless African sound reconfigured ever so slightly for the electronic age." A "remarkable album," exclaims All About Jazz. "It is really a rare occurrence that an electronic music is crafted with so much style and substance." It "deftly balances tradition and modernity and begs repeated listening," says Jazzwise. St Germain "continues to revolutionize electronic music."

  • Tourist, St Germain's internationally acclaimed album from 2000, was named one of the Best Albums of the Year by Rolling Stone and helped originate a genre of French electronic music. The album "organically melded innovative and irresistibly addictive song structures and arrangements," says All About Jazz, "with a wealth of house beats, jazz and blues sounds, dub, ambient and soul into an eclectic mix that catapulted it to classic status." Remastered by the artist in 2012, Tourist is available here on two 180-gram vinyl LPs; album download not included.

  • The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, features 13 tracks written and recorded collaboratively by the band—Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon—with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally; also on the album are Kenny Vaughan and Mariachi Flor de Toloache. "Right from the drop, Yours, Dreamily, ignites like a cigarette flicked on a stream of gasoline," says NPR. It's "one of Auerbach's most ambitious and fully realized albums." Mojo exclaims: "This one, for sure, is a keeper."

  • Lianne La Havas's album Blood was inspired by her Jamaican and Greek family heritage and by Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. "The album demands, and rewards, all the attention you can give it," raves Rolling Stone. It's "a seductive blend of poetic lyricism, sultry vocals, and strong yet understated musicianship," says the Daily Beast. "La Havas is a powerhouse with a full heart," says NPR, "creating music that's sweeping, inspiring and downright fun."
