Anti-folk goddess Ani DiFranco has her 17th studio album Which Side Are You On? and local guitar gals Blanche Dubois have album number three Young Heart.

Metallers Lamb Of God deliver their new album Resolution, screamo band Attack Attack have This Means War and Anthony Green of Circa Survive goes solo with Beautiful Things.

Hip-hop’s righteous uncle Common has his new album The Dreamer/The Believer.

Latin guitar cover duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela drop Area 52, and Australian guitar wizard Joe Robinson delivers Let Me Introduce You

Hipster Brooklyn electro-pop duo Chairlift have their second album Something and UK rock duo Big Deal deliver their debut Lights Out.
