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 fathers 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.
