Amythyst Kiah - Wary + Strange

You may have heard of Amythyst Kiah from the Americana/Folk supergroup “Our Native Daughters” along with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell. Her song “Black Myself” on their album received a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots song. The song, however, is reimagined here on “Wary + Strange” with a much heavier rock vibe featuring not only Amythyst’s incredible vocals but a bevy of guitars, bass and drums that gives the song incredible drive. This album “Wary + Strange” is an incredible album that combines alt rock, blues and roots music. She may be known for her guitar work, but it’s her vocals that will really grab you. The biggest compliment I can give is think of her sound as a more rock-based and edgier Tracy Chapman. Find the album on Tidal.

Patricia Barber – Clique

Well, the hyped and long-awaited new album from Patricia Barber has arrived! Considering the quality of her other recordings and with this one being recorded in DXD at 32-bit/352.8 kHz, there was little doubt the audio quality would be at a high standard. However, this means nothing if the music is not at a high caliber as well. While Patricia typically has distinctive interpretations of standards, the music won’t be for everyone, but she definitely has a legion of fans as well. Of note on her recordings is the talent of other performers, in particular her bassists. This is mentioned as her cover of “The In Crowd” as a duo between Barber and bassist Mulcahy is a particular standout. Check it out on Tidal.
