Here are some recent album releases you should consider putting on your iPod:

Alicia Wade

1. “Drastic Fantastic” by KT Tunstall. I’m a sucker for pseudo-folk artists, what can I say?


2. “Echoes, Silence, Patience ‘ Grace” by Foo Fighters. There’s nary a single these guys have put out that I haven’t loved.

Eugene Clark

1. “Echoes, Silence, Patience ‘ Grace” by Foo Fighters. Any band with a former Nirvana member has to be worth hearing.

2. “Venus Doom” by H.I.M. Few bands can pull off a punk-metal sound as well as H.I.M.

Jakina Hill

1. “Just Like You” by Keyshia Cole. She clearly hasn’t been hit with the sophomore jinx.

2. “The Real Thing – Words and Sounds, Vol. 3” by Jill Scott. She always delivers when you need that mellow, jazzy, smooth sound.


Audra Ord

1. “Echoes, Silence, Patience ‘ Grace” by Foo Fighters. Same great Foo sound fans are used to but with some new elements.

2. “The Meanest of Times” by Dropkick Murphys. Who doesn’t love a little Irish punk rock?
