Justin Townes Earle – Harlem River Blues

Steve Earle’s son moves out of dad’s shadow with this infectious set of Southern gospel rock.

Dr. Dog – Shame, Shame

Another great album from the throwback indie rockers from Philly. See these guys live when you can.

Chatham County Line – Wildwood

The Raleigh-based string band goes deeper into Americana and forest rock with this effort made at Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheville.

Cadillac Sky – Letters in the Deep

The Nashville string band gets experimental and finds elements of trippy folk and cerebral pop rock.

Black Keys – Brothers

The garage blues duo headed down to Muscle Shoals and crushed it—even if they sold these songs to too many commercials.

Drive-By Truckers – The Big To-Do

The Truckers got back to big rock bombast, and it never sounded better.

Anders Osborne – American Patchwork

The bluesy New Orleans tunesmith teamed up with Galactic drummer Stanton Moore and created a cool mix of funk, groove, and Crescent City rock.

Joe Pug – Messenger

The Chicago-based songwriter can paralyze you with his stark fingerpicking, smoky vocals, and soul-searching prose.

Mumford and Sons – Sigh No More

These Brits conquered every festival from Bonnaroo to Telluride and became the kings of the banjo-toting new school folk movement.

Trampled by Turtles – Palomino

Ragged Americana that shifts from furious strings to Townes Van Zandt-style balladry.
