New music

The John Butler Trio is an Australian band which has made a name for itself with strong blues/roots music.  Their latest CD - April Uprising - was just released a few months ago.  We've just added one of their most critically-acclaimed and popular albums to our collection:  Sunrise Over Sea.  The band has been compared to the Dave Matthews Band, and has opened for them, as well as appearing at the South By Southwest music festival.
Los Lobos, the East L.A. band that shot to fame recording some Ritchie Valens covers for the movie La Bamba, has just released their 19th album - Tin Can Trust.  A great mixture of blues, rock, Tex-Mex, country and Mexican sounds which will please listeners looking for a good, solid rock album.
Canadian indie band The New Pornographers have just released their 5th album. Together has been much better received than their previous release (Challengers), and lead vocalists Neko Case and A.C. Newman give the band a strong, energetic sound.  They are back on form, and pleasing fans again.
