Each Friday, we review 10 recently-released CDs in 10 words each:

Mumford & Sons Sigh No More — London quartet releases debut full of mellow, sleepy folk rock.

Great American Taxi Reckless Habits — Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman leads Americana band’s Dead-like vibe.

John Hiatt The Open Road — Singer’s 19th album contains more enjoyable country-tinged rock songs.

Sean Hayes Run Wolves Run — Soul-tinged folk rock has great grooves, rhythms in it.

Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three Riverboat Soul — Title says it all — sounds like old-school riverboat tunes.

Jaguar Love Hologram Jams — Unique vocals sound almost feminine over energetic rock, electronic hints.

Felix Obelix The Tick of the Clock, the Beat in the Chest — Triangle-based N.C. band offers “interesting” female-fronted indie variety.

Jenny Whiteley Forgive or Forget — Rootsy folk music sounds like a lot of other folk(s).

All Day Sucker The Big Pretend — I’m not sure when this craptacular rock album was released.

Dot Allison Room 7 1/2 — Pete Doherty guests on album filled with emotional, strong vocals.
