Bon Iver “Bon Iver” (4AD)

Three years after “For Emma, Forever” turned the world and Kanye West onto Justin Vernon, he’s back with a humdinger of a new record. Download “Calgary” here.

DJ Shadow “I Gotta Rokk” (Interscope)

This taster for the brand spanking new Shadow album, which is due in September, is a root-and-branch banger which gives your speakers a good seeing to.

Stubborn Heart “Need Someone” (White)

Sparse, beautiful and poignant tune from mysterious London-based producer and singer

Lone “Coreshine Voodoo” (R&S)

Opening track on the “Echolocations EP” from Matt Cutler takes you right to the heart of the rave.

Joni Mitchell “Count & Spark” (Asylum)

Recommended ages ago to OTR by Glasser’s Cameron Miserow and finally purchased last weekend, this 1974 album saw Mitchell adding deep jazz tones to her folk-rock.
