NEW RELEASES, 11/17: SHARON JONES & THE DAP KINGS, MAVIS STAPLES, MORRISSEY, RONNIE EARL, BUTCHER BROWN, NINE INCH NAILS, DARRELL SCOTT & more!

When Sharon Jones died of pancreatic cancer last year, the world lost its greatest exponent of vintage soul; that she’d first hit her stride in the ’00s with the revivalist, detail-obsessed Daptone label, made the accomplishment all the more striking. Recorded over her last two years with longtime sidemen, genre-masters all, Jones meets darkness with hope on this denouement. “A Matter of Time” envisions world peace; “Come and Be a Winner” is a funky pep talk.

NEW RELEASES, 11/10: ANGEL OLSEN, ARETHA FRANKLIN, WALK THE MOON, FOUR TET and some amazing reissues from METALLICA, HUSKER DU & R.E.M.!

Indie queen Angel Olsen has come a long way from her days as part of the Cairo Gang; her legion of fervid fans steadily growing with each subsequent release. It’s a trajectory that mirrors the evolution of Olsen’s sound—and the size of her band—from the stark, indie-folk of 2012’s Strange Cacti, to the expansive, swirling soundscapes of last year’s My Woman. It was My Woman—with Olsen trying on everything from synthy, dream-pop (“Intern”) to Rumours-era Stevie Nicks (“Sister”) and realizing they all fit perfectly

NEW RELEASES 11/3: Kicking off November with BOB DYLAN, a TOMMY EMMANUEL/DAVID GRISMAN collaboration, SCOTT MILLER, BLITZEN TRAPPER & more!

Tragic love, drug abuse, science fiction, and Americana: Blitzen Trapper managed to squeeze all that, and more, into their rock opera, Wild and Reckless, which was produced for the stage in their hometown of Portland, Ore., earlier this year. But that wasn’t enough for frontman Eric Earley and crew. Taking seven of the songs from the play and fleshing them out with five new numbers, they assembled an album of the same name.

NEW RELEASES, 10/27: PETER CASE, JULIEN BAKER, JOE HENRY, BOOTSY COLLINS, NORAH JONES, THEORY OF A DEADMAN & more!

The 22-year-old songwriter Julien Baker sees this not so much as an impossibility as a challenge to reconcile, daring her to make music in which she turns herself inside out. Her songs are sparse, internally focused, and radically intimate. “I know that you don’t understand, ’cause you don’t believe what you don’t see,” she sings on “Shadowboxing,” a particularly arresting song off her new album, Turn Out the Lights. Baker’s songs are relentlessly sad but bleakly hopeful, if only for the reason that, if we are listening to them,

NEW RELEASES, 10/20: DESTROYER, BELA FLECK & ABIGAIL WASHBURN, BRAND NEW, WILLIE NELSON, MARGO PRICE & more!

For starters, the entire set comprises originals. And there are no guest musicians — only two banjos, Washburn’s voice, and percussion sounds (feet tapping in the floor or a board). Everything that made the record had to be able to be reproduced in a live setting. It features the pair performing on seven different banjos, ranging from a ukulele banjo to an upright bass banjo, with an emphasis on three-finger and clawhammer styles. The few adaptations of traditional tunes include a stunning version of Clarence Ashley’s “My Home’s Across the Blue Ridge Mountains,” alchemically transformed

NEW RELEASES, 10/13: BECK, ROBERT PLANT, NINE INCH NAILS, ST. VINCENT, THE BARR BROTHERS, a KURT VILE/COURTNEY BARNETT collaboration and more!

On his new album, “Colors,” Beck delivers a perfect pop statement. This is by far his most conventionally mainstream album to date, working with the modern-pop template and elevating it in the process. Singles “Dreams,” ”Wow” and “Up All Night” have all been floating around a while now, so this shift should not come as a surprise. The record had been on the shelf for quite some time. Beck initially wanted to release this closer to his triumphant 2014 album “Morning Phase,” which got a lot of attention at the Grammys when it won album of the year.

NEW RELEASES, 10/6: JEFF BECK, JD MCPHERSON, THE CHURCH, DRIVIN’ N’ CRYIN’, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, LIAM GALLAGHER & more!

JD McPherson writes and performs songs steeped in the sounds of classic rock and roll, updated with thrilling sonic details that place his third album, “Undivided Heart & Soul,” firmly in the now. While musicians can carry virtually whole orchestras and thousands of sound effects in pocket-sized digital devices, bricks and mortar can still make a difference. After false starts and a search for direction — and some assistance from Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age
