Out now

Bradley Cooper in­tro­duces him­self as a gruff in­ter­preter of squally gui­tar-rock and ac­quits him­self well. Lady Gaga, mean­while, gets to do a few big, mod­ern pop tunes, a Ca­role King-style turn and var­i­ous bal­lads. A tie-in hit.

Bot­tle It In Out now

Kurt Vile is the kind of rock star peo­ple tend to com­pare to Neil Young, though that doesn’t quite cap­ture his brand of quirky indie-rock. If it some­times sounds like he’s just find­ing a groove and then free-as­so­ci­at­ing over the top, that’s part of the ap­peal.

Songs Of The Plains Out now

With a voice that comes up from the bot­tom of his boots, Cana­dian Colter Wall strums, rum­bles and yo­dels about farm­ing, the death of the rail­road and his dis­trust of big-city folk. It’s quite a rou­tine, served up with con­vic­tion and charm.
