Posted By on Fri, Aug 5, 2011 at 12:11 PM

Each Friday, we review 10 recently released CDs in 10 words each:

John Hiatt Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns — Singer’s 20th solo album features more of his gritty Americana.

Justin Hines Days to Recall — Canadian singer comes off a bit whiny on his debut.

Drive-By Truckers Ugly Buildings, Whores & Politicians — I think they put a new album out every week.

Last Winter The Heart & The Broken Compass — Orlando band does its best impression of pop-leaning Sevendust.

Dehlia Low Ravens & Crows — Asheville band drives its bluegrass sound forward with latest album.

Eric Church Chief —Latest album continues down the pop side of twang street.

In Flames Sounds of a Playground Fading — Angry Swedish metal band probably not singing songs about puppies.

Reluctant Saints Long Drive — Atlanta band draws from Southern, country influences for its rock.

Thomas Porter Thomas Porter — Singer’s country style gets a dose of Southern bluegrass infusion.

Thomas Porter & Copper River Band Trolley Days — Not quite sure what difference is between band vs. solo.
