Lady Gaga – Joanne. How can we start by talking about anything else? LADY GAGA released a new album last month! THE Lady Gaga!! The album is called Joanne and it is amazing. Gaga tries a new style that contrasts her previous album – ARTPOP. Jumping from a folk rock feel to Gaga’s famous pop sound and then finally landing on almost a show tune vibe, this album seems to satisfy a lot of expressive needs for Gaga. The album title and accompanying title song pay tribute to the singer’s late aunt who Gaga cites as inspiration for much of her work. The ballad “Angel Down” is a memorial to the late Trayvon Martin who was a black 17 year old killed by police in 2012. “How could I not say something?” Gaga responded when asked why she wrote the song. “Dancin’ In Circles” and “Perfect Illusion” are reminiscent of the old Gaga. “Come To Mama” and “Hey Girl” are throwbacks to her days before becoming Lady Gaga and was still performing as Stefani Germanotta – the young Italian girl from New York with a dream of ending up on Broadway someday. “A-YO,” “John Wayne,” and “Diamond Heart” point at a new Gaga – insisting that vocals be raw and real, guitars be featured, and fun be had. We recommend this one for sure!
Melanie C – Version Of Me. This former Spice Girl is back and better than ever with a hot new dance album! Every song shows off why we all loved Sporty Spice in the first place and shows us why we should continue to love her even more each year! Check out the CD by clicking HERE!
Michael Buble – Nobody But Me. He’s back and better than ever! In his ninth studio album, Buble features 3 original songs and 9 covers. He says that this is the most fun he has ever had writing an album and we can tell! A little bit pop, a little bit jazz, a whole lot of good music! Check it out by clicking HERE!

David Bowie – Low. Now in stock on vinyl, a 2016 reissued import of Low pressed on orange vinyl! This 1977 album is one of our favorites from Bowie, written during a tough time in the late artist’s life. This album marked his unique transition into ambient and electronic music.
