51 Most Anticipated Albums of 2017

Choosing our Most Anticipated Albums of 2017 is an extremely difficult exercise. We considered listing 100, but that was unmanageable; 25 would have been too few.

Alice Glass (TBA) After a messy departure from Crystal Castles and former bandmate Ethan Kahl, Alice Glass has […]

First Impressions: Jim James – “Eternally Even”

First Impressions: Jim James – “Eternally Even”

The irony of naming an album “Eternally Even” (via ATO Records) by someone who has done as much high-profile identity shifting as Jim James is not lost on us here at The Revue. James has been anything but even over the years, both within and without My Morning Jacket. Following the 2015 release of MMJ’s excellent The Waterfall, James found time during the […]

Mundo 20 – The Lounge Chair Edition

Mundo 20 – The Lounge Chair Edition
