Defying Gravity is the ninth studio album from American rock outfit Mr. Big and follows 2015’s The Stories We Could Tell. Recording over an intense six-day session in Los Angeles, Mr. Big deliver a collection of melodic rock that harks back to their earlier albums. The nostalgic single “1992” is included. ~ Rich Wilson

Indie rock singer/songwriter Mondo Cozmo presents his debut album, Plastic Soul. The album was recorded over a two-week period in Joshua Tree, with only his dog Cozmo for company. Plastic Soul was released by Republic Records and contains the songs “Shine,” “Hold on to Me,” and “Higher.” ~ Liam Martin

He sings with Bob Dylan’s slur but unites it with the stylings of some notable Britrock bands. You could file him beside Kasabian after hearing the over-egged dance-rock of Automatic, or Spiritualized due to the gospel uplift of Shine. Perhaps unwisely he resurrects the forgotten dance sub-genre big beat on 11 Acre, which lifts its style and melody from a 1995 Chemical Brothers remix of The Charlatans. These are hardly fashionable influences, but when he turns his sampling ear to Erma Franklin’s Piece of My Heart on the title track, he lands on a subtle soulfulness that deserves to be much more widely heard.

London bassist and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado burst onto the scene in 2015 with a debut that prompted a stream of plaudits. As the son of late great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, there was great anticipation for the album, which not only exceeded expectations but demonstrated that Mullov-Abbado is an accomplished instrumentalist and composer in his own right. His sophomore recording Cross-Platform Interchange not only confirms his promise as an artist of real depth and vision, but demonstrates his intention to do things his own way. Playing on his love of trains as well as the reciprocity and stylistic openness within his music, the title perfectly symbolizes the interconnectivity of inspiration in his life and art.

Megan Sullivan McInerney, known by her stage name Meg Mac, is an Australian singer-songwriter and musician. “Low Blows” is her debut full-lenght release. The album was recorded in Texas in the US and Victoria, Australia. Low Blows is a triumph of bold, unique songwriting which bodes incredibly well for Mac’s future as an artist, at home and on the world stage.

Her debut EP got a Best Female Artist nod from the 2015 ARIA Music Awards, the same year that McInerney toured the US with D’Angelo, and she’s definitely aiming higher again with her debut LP.

The former lead singer of defunct award-winning French Rock band Skip The Use, Mat Bastard ventures out into solo waters on LOOV, the name of this debut album and the band. The songs are more personal than anything Bastard has done in the past and convey the strength of his convictions.

Mat Bastard (Mathieu-Emmanuel Monnaert) has been the leader of french rock band Skip The Use, which popularity has been growing during the 2010’s, until the band’s breakup announcement by the end of 2016. With Shaka Ponk, they were the two bands that brought rock back to the mainstream radios or TV channels in France.

Organist Johnny Dupont’s debut is marked by bright, bouncy arrangements of pop easy listening material. His vibrant style should spark greater enthusiasm for organ music. Standout numbers are “Caravan” and “Our Day Will Come”.

Multi-platinum recording artist Joe Nichols is one of country music’s most praised traditional country artists. “Never Gets Old” is his newest album, his first new release in four years.

The headline-grabbing gimmick on Never Gets Old, Joe Nichols’ eighth studio album, is a countrified cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 booty classic “Baby Got Back.” The fact that Nichols brings in country comedian Darren Knight to perform a riff as his Southern Momma character is a giveaway that Nichols doesn’t take this track too seriously — and the fact that he can’t be bothered to find a way to get this to work beyond eight lines from the original is a telltale sign that he didn’t work too hard on it — but it nevertheless captures his considerable charm and skill. From the outset, Nichols distinguished himself by balancing traditional country with modern concerns, a sensibility that’s mellowed into the easy touch he shows on Never Gets Old. In tone and sound, the 2017 record is a sequel to 2013’s Crickets — it even contains a new version of that album’s “Billy Graham’s Bible” — but that only signals how Nichols is beginning to settle into a relaxed middle age. He’s not one to rush the tempo — when things get quicker, as they do on the jangling “So You’re Saying” and a version of Dierks Bentley’s “Diamonds Make Babies,” he just brings it toward adult-oriented crossover pop — but he’s also too young to rely only on old ways. Sometimes this manifests in a track with a distinctively modern bent, like “Tall Boys,” which is fueled by a rhythmic R&B loop, but it usually amounts to Nichols sounding nimble and connected. Few country singers would sound as believable singing about Tom Petty and Appletinis as Nichols does here. He’s an old-fashioned guy who is happy living in the modern world, and that’s why Never Gets Old is so appealing: It feels familiar yet fresh. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

All I Ever See In You Is Me is the sophomore release from the commanding talent that is singer-songwriter Jillette Johnson. Making full use of her perfectly-judged piano accompaniment as well as her keening voice, the 11 tracks that make up this album are a moving, mature, and sparse collection with a hint of country twang.

Widely-praised award-winning vocalist Jazzmeia Horn makes her debut with A Social Call, recorded with an all-star acoustic jazz lineup. Horn draws from a deep well of influences on her interpretations: she remakes standards such as West Of The Moon and I Remember You but is equally adept tackling the hard bop of Afro Blue and Moanin’ or the gospel-leaning staples Wade In The Water and Lift Every Voice And Song. The album features Horn’s readings of two songs associated with one of her biggest inspirations, Betty Carter: the title track and Tight. She also ventures into R&B on the much-covered Philly soul number People Make the World Go Round and I’m Going Down, a top 20 hit for Mary J. Blige, first done by Rose Royce in the 1970s.
