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

Dave Alvin Eleven Eleven — Solid blues music, but the talking style of vocals disappointed.

EG Kight Lip Service — Georgia Songbird offers Southern-accented, vibrato-vocaled, blue-infused album.

Greg Nagy Fell Toward None — Soulful vocals fail to set blues musician apart from pack.

Nikka Costa Pro*Whoa — Six-song EP brings soulful singer into new pop direction.

The Wilders Broken Pieces — Roots band plays a slow, sleepy brand of country folk.

Seun Anikulapo Kuti & Egypt 80 From Africa With Fury: Rise — In front of his father’s band, son keeps energy flowing.

Matt Nathanson Modern Love — Catchy tunes, strong songwriter will likely land songs on TV.

John Common and Blinding Flashes of Light Beautiful Empty — Acoustic album set apart through its orchestral arrangements, soulful vocals.

Potluck Rhymes and Resin — More generic hip-hop centered around act of smoking pot.

The Dear Hunter The Color Spectrum — Bands latest album is a roller coaster of good, mediocre.
