See You There (Surfdog)
Glen Campbell offers stunning takes of his career-defining hits on quite possibly his final album See You There. "This record is a more intimate and unique take on many of Glen's most popular songs as well as some other gems. The producers took the magic of his voice and showcased it in a whole new way for Glen." The album's title, See You There, an expression that's been a trademark of Glen's for years, takes on an added poignancy at this stage of his life as do the songs that take us back to the early days of his career.
Pushin' Against A Stone (Concord)
"I'm just doing Memphis music my own way," declares Valerie, a Tennessee native whose Pushin' Against A Stone epitomizes the legendary music city's mix of southern soul, roots rock, Appalachian country twang and blistering blues. June may be blessed with Lauryn Hill looks, but her Stone is a rock hard, rough n' tumble collection of vintage-sounding tracks that trade any slick details for a loose, remarkably fresh feel. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach is in the studio producer's seat for a few of the album's best offerings like the perfectly disheveled "You Can't Be Told", a showcase for Auerbach's dark, rumbling guitar lines and June's unvarnished Dolly-meets-Billie vocals.
