For Fans Of: Kid Rock x Lil Jon, Cyhi Da Prynce, dumb rhymes spit super-fast.

 

Brett Netson

Simple Work for the Dead

(The New Black)

Sounds Like: The Built to Spill guitarist puts out a solo record; it’s gloomy, psychedelic and sometimes darkly full of metallic feedback.

Free Association: Coupla titles might shed light: “God is Wrong” and “Piss Anywhere.”

For Fans Of: Caustic Resin + Dinosaur Jr., Beck x Pavement, sad Idaho bastards.

 

Kate Bush

50 Words For Snow

(RCA)

Sounds Like: A stunning seven-song, 65-minute set of Winter “hymns” that are improvisational, jazzy, hauntingly beautiful, and kill popular ideals re: seasonal LPs.

Free Association: After the disastrous Director’s Cut, she redeems herself here x 10.

For Fans Of: Tori Amos + Joni Mitchell, Elton John, thematic creativity done well.

 

Mary J. Blige

My Life II... The Journey Continues

(Geffen)

Sounds Like: Supposedly a revisiting of her 1994 sophomore smash, but Diddy’s not involved, her sound’s evolved dramatically and she relies on big0name guests.
