  • English singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas's album Blood was inspired by her Jamaican and Greek family heritage. Lyrically, the songs she wrote are almost all related to "the feeling of who you are and where you come from," she says. Musically, she took inspiration from Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. Dancehall/reggae producer Stephen McGregor joined in the making of Blood,as did a rich collection of others. Pre-orders include an instant download of the first single, "Unstoppable," which was produced by Adele/FKA twigs collaborator Paul Epworth and built upon an instrumental recording by Ninja Tunes trio The Invisible.

  • Inspired by the Floyd Mayweather / Manny Pacquiao boxing match on Saturday, May 2, The Arcs release a 7" with the songs "Stay in My Corner" b/w "Tomato Can." Out May 2 on Nonesuch Records, this will be an exclusive to independent retail.

  • Buena Vista Social Club’s Lost and Found is a collection of previously unreleased tracks from the Buena Vista all-star cast of Ibrahim Ferrer, Rubén González, Cachaíto López, Guajiro Mirabal, Eliades Ochoa, Omara Portuondo, and Compay Segundo—some recorded during the original album’s sessions in Havana, others from the years that followed. The studio tracks were recorded at the 1996 Egrem studio sessions in Havana and during a period of rich and prolific creativity stretching into the early 2000s. Lost and Found also features live recordings from the world tours of Buena Vista’s legendary veterans. NPR calls it "a gorgeous reminder of what made [Buena Vista] so famous to begin with."

  • Punch Brothers join forces with producer T Bone Burnett for The Phosphorescent Blues. On the album, the band examines modern life, or, as Chris Thile puts it, asks: "How do we cultivate beautiful, three-dimensional experiences with our fellow man in this day and age?” The CBC calls it "triumphant." The Herald Scotland says it's "a quite masterly collection from a quintet of virtuosi [that] deserves to be filed next to the best work of The Beach Boys, Big Star and Richard Thompson. It's that good." The two-LP, 140-gram vinyl release includes four additional tracks not available elsewhere.

  • Rhiannon Giddens—singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and founding member of Carolina Chocolate Drops—makes her solo recording debut with Tomorrow Is My Turn. The album, produced by T Bone Burnett, features a broad range of songs from genres as diverse as gospel, jazz, blues, and country, including works made famous by Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Odetta, and Nina Simone. The album "is a showcase for Ms. Giddens’s glorious voice," says the New York Times. "For all her technical control, her voice is a perpetually soulful marvel." "Gorgeous," exclaims the Daily Telegraph. "An exceptional record."

  • This three-LP collection captures a one-night-only concert held at New York City’s Town Hall in 2013 to celebrate the music of the Coen brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis, featuring live performances by icons and rising stars of folk and Americana. They sang "in pitch perfect tone that left an oft-awestruck audience silently stunned," says the Los Angeles Times, "then vocally thrilled." The concert, the resulting Showtime documentary, and this live album were produced by Joel and Ethan Coen and T Bone Burnett.

  • Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson’s film Inherent Vice, an adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel, includes nine works by Greenwood; an unreleased Radiohead tune performed with members of Supergrass; and recordings from the movie’s era, the tail end of the psychedelic ’60s. Performers on this "excellent playlist" (New York Times) include The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Neil Young, Can, and The Marketts, among others. Inherent Vice stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, and Owen Wilson.

  • For Black Friday Record Store Day 2014, Conor Oberst releases a special limited-edition 7" with two exclusive tracks recorded during the sessions for his Nonesuch Records debut album, Upside Down Mountain, that are unavailable anywhere else: "Standing on the Outside Looking In" and "Sugar Street." The 7” was cut by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service and pressed at Record Industry in the Netherlands.

  • The recordings made by Abelardo Barroso with Orquesta Sensación in Havana during the 1950s represent one of the pinnacles of the golden age of Cuban music. On Cha Cha Cha, World Circuit, the label behind Buena Vista Social Club, releases a re-mastered selection of 14 of their most irresistible recordings from one of Cuba's all-time great singers. The Guardian gives Cha Cha Cha four stars, calling it both "another reminder of Cuba’s extraordinary musical history" and "almost uncannily contemporary."
