Barry and Holly Tashian, Andrew Bird, Interpol

Put It in Your Heart

In a career spanning 30-years, Canadian singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn has tried everything from Christian folk to political rock. This more introspective album is his 27th release.


Jesse Harris wrote many of the songs on Norah Jones' Grammy-winning album, Come Away With Me, including the song "Don't Know Why." On this album, Harris picks up the pace and adds a little distortion, but keeps his breezy, contemplative melodies.

Butéco 2

Celso Fonseca has been a producer and session musician for more than 20-years, but this is his first international solo release. Considered a keystone of the Brazilian music scene, Fonseca has a smooth, sensual voice backed by minimalist acoustic instrumentation.


A violinist, singer and songwriter from Chicago, Andrew Bird has long been infatuated with music from the '20s and '30s. On this collection of songs, Bird tosses all that aside for an album filled with mystery, making music that could only be from this century.

Wondrous Love

Veteran bluegrass artists Ricky Skaggs, Earl Scruggs and Alison Krauss appear on this gospel CD, shaped by the sounds of Tennessee and southwest Virginia.

We Could

Barry and Holly Tashian are a husband and wife folk duo with harmonies reminiscent of the Everly Brothers.


The gloomy dirges of Interpol sound a lot like the Joy Division. This song originally appeared on Interpol's album Turn On the Bright Lights.
