Each Friday, we review 10 recently released CDs in 10 words each:
Dave Alvin Eleven Eleven — Solid blues music, but the talking style of vocals disappointed.
EG Kight Lip Service — Georgia Songbird offers Southern-accented, vibrato-vocaled, blue-infused album.
Greg Nagy Fell Toward None — Soulful vocals fail to set blues musician apart from pack.
Nikka Costa Pro*Whoa — Six-song EP brings soulful singer into new pop direction.
The Wilders Broken Pieces — Roots band plays a slow, sleepy brand of country folk.
Seun Anikulapo Kuti & Egypt 80 From Africa With Fury: Rise — In front of his father’s band, son keeps energy flowing.
Matt Nathanson Modern Love — Catchy tunes, strong songwriter will likely land songs on TV.
John Common and Blinding Flashes of Light Beautiful Empty — Acoustic album set apart through its orchestral arrangements, soulful vocals.
Potluck Rhymes and Resin — More generic hip-hop centered around act of smoking pot.
The Dear Hunter The Color Spectrum — Bands latest album is a roller coaster of good, mediocre.
