Setting sun, wind and waves and hills — these are all elements of the lyrics on Patty Griffin's new album, Servant Of Love. She says those references come from noticing the spiritual interconnection between nature and humans, which she says makes it harder to be cynical.

Roots rock band Milagro Saints joined Stew live in the studio on Monday 9/21/15 to play some tunes and to talk about their new CD.

Lead singer and songwriter Mr. S.D. Ineson has described the Saints’ thematically connected 10 song set "TUPELO" as "Mythological Americana" where various genres... dylanesque surrealistic blues, slack alt-country, straight up folk rawk, and old timey ballads, combine musically with lyrics inspired by the mythological atmospheres and birth locations of American Roots Music.

Leon Bridges

by  • We probably should have shot this Tiny Desk Concert in black-and-white. Listening to Leon Bridges, I hear a sound with its heart and soul rooted in 1962. There's purity in his soulful voice that's unadorned, untouched and unaffected by 21st-century pop.

When Stephen Colbert takes over the Late Show tonight on CBS, he'll have a new partner in crime on stage: pianist Jon Batiste.

It's too soon to tell whether Outskirts Of Love is the end of a trilogy or simply the next chapter in an ongoing saga. All we know for sure is that it's the third album to find Shemekia Copeland extending her definition of modern blues to include a sort of pan-Americana approach. Her first few records hewed closer to contemporary blues, but since 2009's portentously titled Never Going Back, the daughter of the late Texas blues-guitar titan Johnny Clyde Copeland has been moving in a wider world.

There was a clear path laid out for Gary Clark Jr. If he'd wanted, he could have allowed himself to be crowned the young, African-American savior of 21st-century blues guitar.

Laura Jane Grace and Lauren Denitzio both fell in love with music in their teens, and both turned it into a career. By the time they met in the studio this past winter, their lives had taken very different paths.

New Mix: Psych Pop And Gritty Rock From John Grant, Dilly Dally, More

Good luck getting these tunes out of your head.
