Alrighty, so to get things started, here are some of the cds I’ve been getting into this week:

Jammer- “Jahmanji”- Came out in the end of July but it’s definitely worth taking a listen. It’s more of a dance album, with reggae, hip-hop, and electronic mixed between tracks, and the guy has a sweet British accent. I recommend track #11- Party Animal

Jenny and Johnny-“I’m Having Fun Now”- Jenny Lewis from Rilo Kiley and her boyfriend Jonathon Rice have come together to produce a softer rock album with a few pretty good tracks. I like “Scissor Runner” and “Big Wave”

The Deep Fried 5-“Saturday Night Funk Sunday Morning Soul”- A great album for those who dig the classic funk music, i.e. The Average White Band, Parliament Funkadelic, etc.

Bess Rogers- “Bess Rogers Presents Bess Rogers”- EP from new artist Bess Rogers. It’s got a slower sort of pop feel, but the tracks are worth giving a listen. RIYL Missy Higgins 

Sara Radle-“Four”-Similar to the above, this album’s got a pop-rock feel with a few pretty good tracks. I like “Fooling Nobody”

That’s all I got fo’ now. Check back and I’ll have more for you. And don’t forget to send your thoughts on new albums to
