Review: Kindred the Family Soul- Love Has No Recession
Kindred the Family Soul- "Sticking With You" video stream
I derive more pleasure from Rihanna's pop songs than a teenager. I freely whip my hair back and forth. Yet I reluctantly acknowledge my status as an adult. That's why I embrace Kindred the Family Soul. Love Has No Recession, the new album by the husband-and-wife duo, is music for grownups. Its songs address real-life relationship issues in the context of today's economic climate. Anyone who's still lamenting the loss of Nick Ashford needs this album in her or her life.
I'm a sucker for bluegrass-meets-jazz and bluegrass-meets-classical collaborations. I'm charmed, consequently, by the Goat Herd Sessions.

I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I really enjoy the new Pearl Jam album.
"Still Tippin'": Have you seen this slice of insanity from ASAP Rocky?
Kansas City Click: Milagres plays the Riot Room on Tuesday.
Kim Richey sings at the Record Bar on Wednesday.
Mayer Hawthorne is on Thursday bill at the Midland Theater. I love the concept of this video.
