Critical Equation [LP]

'I feel like I'm in a totally new band right now,' says Dr. Dog guitarist/singer Scott McMicken. It's a bold declaration considering he's been co-fronting the beloved indie outfit for a decade-and-a-half, but it cuts straight to the heart of the intense and transformative experience behind the group's brilliant new album, 'Critical Equation.' Produced by Gus Seyffert (Bedouine, Michael Kiwanuka), 'Critical Equation' is the most infections and adventurous collection Dr. Dog has laid to tape yet. The record was born from a journey of doubt and discovery, a heavy, sometimes painful reckoning that ultimately brought the band closer together with more strength and clarity than ever before. Call it an existential awakening, call it a dark night of the soul, whatever it was, it fueled one of the most fertile creative periods in the group's history.

Cicada Rhythm

Cicada Rhythm is Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis. Following their 2015 self-titled debut, Cicada Rhythm consciously decided to build upon their homespun, stripped-down folk sound by bringing in more musicians and multiple producers to their latest record, Everywhere I Go. Recorded in a string of studios across the southeast, it's a snapshot of a band on the move, with new members filling their lineup and a louder set of influences propelling their sound forward. There are roots-rock tunes, slow waltzes, front-porch folksongs and backwoods ballads, all delivered by a group of road warriors who've cut their teeth not only in the writing room, but onstage, too. Kenneth Pattengale (Milk Carton Kids) and Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) share production duties, giving Everywhere I Go a broad, diverse punch.

Jessie Baylin

Strawberry Wind, Produced by Richard Swift (Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Foxygen, The Shins) not only delivers on a promise to create an honest album for kids and parents, but it represents what Baylin calls the "beautiful divide," of juggling family life with her creative life, a difficult task by any measure. “The divide in me is easy to feel because I invest 100% of myself into my family and often the creative gets put to the side” she explained, “so when I decided to begin writing for this album it just poured out of me.” And, now singer/songwriter Jessie Baylin is sharing that creative outpouring on her debut children's album, Strawberry Wind. Throughout the album, Baylin doesn't hold back on telling it like it is. Weaving through lyrical themes of dream life, supermoons, and summertime vibes are some gentle doses of reality. “I don't want to lie to my kids. Life is hard sometimes and you need to find a way to deal with it… there will always be things in life you can't control. But, you can dream of a better world and make your own refuge," says Baylin, who is mom to 4-year-old Violet and is expecting her second child with her husband. Baylin, who's released four critically-acclaimed albums over the years, says the seed was planted for this album after recording a cover of Harry Nilsson's "He Needs Me" from the kids' film Popeye. “The song has a childlike sense, but the message is very deep. It's magical, it's dark, and it hit all the right notes. I wanted to do an album that feels like that" she says. "Since becoming a mother, I found myself being around the house a lot and I started gravitating to these wonderful albums I remembered from my own childhood — The Beatles, Harry Nilsson's The Point!, John Lennon, Roger Miller's Robin Hood and Carole King's Really Rosie” The magic of those iconic '70s records she mentions is that they're all grounded in solid songwriting and were never dumbed down for the audience. "Those records felt very honest and that was my mission here. I also wanted it to feel magical and remind people of the child inside of all of us that is filled with a sense of wonder and pure joy and hope."
