John Legend with the Roots

Wake Up!

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: A collection of political soul covers from the likes of Nina Simone and Marvin Gaye, runnin’ on the fumes of Obama. A lil’ flat.

Free Association: John, you can sing, kinda, but not like Pendergrass or Withers.

For Fans Of: Soul music with a side of BLAND.

Grinderman

Grinderman 2

(Anti)

Sounds Like: Nick Cave’s band to get his weirdo ya yas out. The Bad Seeds are badass and all, but sometimes Mr. Cave has to get a little thrashy, sexy and mean.

Free Association: The man’s gonna be 53 and he has too much music for one band.

For Fans Of: Howlin’ Wolf, the Stooges, wicked awesome mustaches.

The Charlatans

Who We Touch

(The End)

Sounds Like: On the 20th anniversary of their debut, the UK staples still come on strong with a blend of psycho alt rock, and garage-y pop tunes.

Free Association: “Smash The System”? Really, guys? We’re still doing that?

For Fans Of: Rolling Stones x ELO, Paul Weller, the ‘90s.
