New Music Monday Gives You Rock N' Soul

New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.

Cody ChesnuTT- Landing On A Hundred

The soul singer hasn’t been around much in the past 10 years, but this album is certainly a welcome return. His strong musicianship and experimentation really pay off on this great new one, which you can hear in an NPR Music First Listen this week.

Andrew Bird- Hands Of Glory

This companion piece to his last album, Break It Yourself, was recorded in response to the outstanding response to Bird’s “old-time” live sets. On the record he interprets some classic songs, reworks some of his own from Break It Yourself, and throws in a few new originals to boot.

Iris Dement- Sing The Delta

After sixteen years, we finally get a new album of original music from the folk-country singer. On Sing The Delta, Dement shows that her voice is just as powerful as ever.

Jason Lytle- Dept. Of Disappearance

The former Grandaddy frontman gives us more of his idiosyncratic pop with this pretty new album. Lytle has been consistent for 20 years now; who would expect this record to be any different?

John Cale- Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood

Being both classically trained and an ex-member of The Velvet Underground, Cale is the kind of musician we can’t ignore. Even after hearing just the Danger Mouse produced opener, “I Wanna Talk 2 U,” we knew this album was worth the attention.
