Patrick Lemons of Hippo Records shares which records are flying off the shelf this month:
The War On Drugs: A Deeper Understanding
Most bands would disintegrate after replacing their lead vocalist. The effect’s been quite the opposite, however, for The War On Drugs. Their sound continues to become more refined with their latest offering, making A Deeper Understanding possibly their best album yet.
Recommended Track: Pain or Strangest Thing
David Rawlings: Poor David’s Almanack
This album makes the perfect companion for driving up the Blue Ridge Parkway to look at fall’s newly-turned leaves. Guest starring Old Crow Medicine Show and other famous friends, Poor David’s Almanack celebrates the neo-bluegrass sound that has helped Rawlings make a name for himself.
Recommended Track: Cumberland Gap
Tom Petty: Wildflowers
Petty’s second studio album is filled with hits from the American legend. Wildflowers is a crowd pleaser that’ll set the mood for any occasion. Look for Petty, the original All-American cool guy, in an unexpected cameo role in HBO’s The Defiant Ones.
