January 2014 CD of the Month - As the Texas based band Midlake were in the middle of recording a new album last year, their frontman Tim Smith decided to part ways. At a crossroads such as that, most bands would probably decide to call it quits.
December 2013 CD of the Month - Chances are you've come across the work of Jonathan Wilson, even if his name doesn't ring familiar right away. He's been a staple of the revitalized Laurel Canyon music scene out in California. His work as a producer can be heard on records from artists like Dawes, Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, and Father John Misty.
