Album of the Week: Marvin Gaye, 'You're the Man'


Marvin Gaye, 'You're the Man'

Marvin Gaye tapped the biggest names of the day for 'You're The Man,' including Larry Mizell, Willie Hutch, and Smokey Robinson to make this highly anticipated follow-up. The studio sessions were prolific and the writers brought their A-game.

Album of the Week: Jenny Lewis, 'On The Line'


Jenny Lewis, 'On The Line'

Jenny Lewis put herself on the emotional line with this album. Fans will appreciate the insight into what makes her tick, and will likely relate to the grieving process, and the notion of moving on and coming out OK on the other end of emotional turmoil.

Album of the Week: Hozier, 'Wasteland, Baby!'


Hozier, 'Wasteland Baby'

You can hear the use of different producers across the album with a close listen without it getting in the way of the songwriting. It's an easy listen that combines what Hozier fans love about his voice with instrumentation and arrangements that weren't present on his debut.
