Night (Sony Classical). Review by James Mann.
Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano is one of the most underrated female rock singers of the past 20 years, with a powerful voice that rips your heart out at will. May Terry saw the band and looks for the suture kit to restitch her chest.
Coexist (Young Turks). Review by Jen Cray.
Rufus Wainwright taps his shiny red boots and transports an Isreali crowd to another dimension, or so the transfixed Yifat Grizman figures.

Tomorrow Is Alright (Fat Possum). Review by Jen Cray.
Courtney Love has resurrected Hole, in a way, and set out on a tour that has quickly become the must-see beautiful disaster of the summer. Jen Cray caught the uneven Orlando show.

The world lost an astonishingly gifted artist when singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt passed away December 25, 2009.

Matthew Moyer finds himself in the same concert hall as Leonard Cohen, holy clown, dour prophet, borscht belt crooner, and true legend — in Tampa, Florida, no less.
Live in London (Sony). Review by Jessica Whittington.
