Reeves’ most recent album, Beautiful Life—her first in five years—was released last January. [...]

    The Milk Carton Kids, Sarah Jarosz

      Sarah Jarosz is a multi-Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist whose music straddles folk and Americana; the Milk Carton Kids, also Grammy-nominated, are a young flatpicking harmony duo who have elicited raves from newcomers to the genre as well as the old guard.

    Drive-By Truckers

      Alt-country, Southern rock. Call it what you want, these guys have a song called “Shit Shots Count.” Which is awesome. Straight from the Deep South, the DBTs record in analog; their first two albums were called Gangstabilly and Pizza Deliverance—followed by a live album called Alabama Ass-Whuppin’ (released three times by three different record companies [...]

    Lewis Black

      Lewis Black is angry. Really angry. In fact, he’s angry by profession. The title of his latest tour, The Rant Is Due, is a pun on the various national political reckonings we face, and his preferred comic delivery system, the “rant.” Black became famous for his “Back in Black” segments on The Daily Show, [...]
