Sharon Jones

CD

While leg­endary soul singer Sharon Jones passed away late last year fol­low­ing a bat­tle with pan­cre­atic can­cer, her le­gacy con­tin­ues to grow with the re­lease of fi­nal record Soul of a Woman. Recorded with long­time back­ing band the Dap-Tones, these 11 funk and soul tracks serve as a fit­ting con­clu­sion to a sto­ried ca­reer.

Terra Light­foot

CD

The pride of Hamilton, Terra Light­foot has branched out into blues, rock and gospel ter­ri­tory with third al­bum New Mis­takes. She’s even en­listed some heavy hit­ters, with mem­bers of the Wood Broth­ers and Bruce Spring­steen’s E Street Band mak­ing guest ap­pear­ances.

Noth­ing More

CD & VINYL Al­ter­na­tive out­fit Noth­ing More have been bal­anc­ing rock melodies with metal ag­gres­sion for close to 15 years, but noth­ing has struck that bal­ance more than lat­est al­bum The Sto­ries We Tell Our­selves. Chart­ing a nar­ra­tive through per­sonal hard­ship, the al­bum dives deep in its pur­suit of un­der­stand­ing the hu­man con­di­tion.

Sixx: AM Heroin Di­aries

SOUND­TRACK CD & VINYL A decade ago, Möt­ley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx opened up about his strug­gles through ad­dic­tion with his best-sell­ing mem­oir The Heroin Di­aries and ac­com­pa­ny­ing al­bum. Now, to cel­e­brate ‘The Heroin Di­aries’ 10-year an­niver­sary, the al­bum is back on CD and vinyl with new art­work, per­sonal notes from the band and three re­worked tracks.

Ar­cade Fire

CD

For the friend who wants it all, you can get them Ev­ery­thing Now. The fifth al­bum by Mon­treal in­die icons Ar­cade Fire, Ev­ery­thing Now finds the band lament­ing the per­ils of to­day’s tech­no­log­i­cal­ly­ob­sessed so­ci­ety, set to their sharply-honed dance rock.

Roger Waters

CD

It may have taken the for­mer Pink Floyd front­man 25 years to re­lease this lat­est solo al­bum, but Is This the Life We Re­ally Want has ar­rived at the per­fect time. A scathing in­dict­ment of mod­ern pol­i­tics, Roger Waters proves that his barbs are just as sharp as they were dur­ing Pink Floyd’s hey­day.
