Meets the Morning

Ben Purdom
(SELF-RELEASED)

With his plaintive vocals and coffeehouse-friendly acoustic backdrops, it’d be tempting to think of Ben Purdom as just another earnest Louisville singer-songwriter.

Doghouse Flowers

Jon Ashley
DEPARTURE

Jon Ashley’s Doghouse Flowers is an earnest collection of depressed country songs that tell tales of pretty much every woman who has done him wrong.

Way Out Weather

Steve Gunn

Assuming the vernacular here, vis-a-vis “way out” as a righteous analog, then there is definitely truth in advertising: This is definitely sunny, breezy weather music.

Side A / Side B

Nemo Achida

Released as two separate EPs, Nemo Achida’s run of consistently good, if not great, hip-hop continues. Side A is produced by Jet Taylor, B by Pinky Liberachi, with one self-produced cut.

Dirty Gold

Angel Haze
REPUBLIC/ISLAND

Not everything that comes in a shiny package does so to hide a lack of depth, but this is not the album the hard-hitting emcee’s earlier work led us to expect.
