Willie Nelson

Heroes

(Sony Legacy)

Sounds Like: The 79-year-old Texan’s millionth LP is a bunch of staples, covers, guest spots and steely guitar to accompany his old man, weed-loving country croons.

Free Association: Snoop’s on the 4/20- released “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.” Clever!

For Fans Of: Lukas Nelson x Merle Haggard, Texas, honky-tonk kush.

 

Gossip

A Joyful Noise

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: They get softer as they drift away from Arkansas with each LP; we have to let them evolve, but this is NOTHING like “Standing in the Way of Control.”

Free Association: Seeing Beth get the big-budget video treatment is sadly unfulfilling.

For Fans Of: Bikini Kill x Ting Tings, MEN/Peaches, queer Passion Pit, big girls.

 

Joey Ramone

“...ya know?”

(BMG)

Sounds Like: Posthumous collection from the legendary Ramone (who died at 49 in 2001) featuring guests.

Free Association: Not the same Ramones of the ’70s (this is tame), but still awesome.
