This one almost slipped through on me, folks! I sure am glad I found it. The new release from Irish-born Richard Murray, “Borealis,” is some of the finest alt-country folk acoustic rock I’ve heard this year. Murray stands out as a lyricist, with amazingly poetic prose.

Austin’s J-Po ( Jana Pochop) has hit with her second indie american roots EP, “For and Against,” and I can’t find a darn thing against it. If there is a sound to the south-west, Jana’s songs and music define it. From the raw, emotive vocals to the guitars that sting like sand on the wind, [...]
