Herring has completely switched gears, but kept her signature sound intact, with an album of music for children, The Little House Songs, a collection of songs that pay tribute to the popular 1942 children’s book The Little House, by Virginia Lee Burton.Although it may seem like an usual choice, folk artists have long made entire records for kids, with the best among them being releases by Pete Seeger, Tom T. Hall, Shawn Colvin, and Woody Guthrie (while we’re on the subject I have to point out that it’d be worth your while to check out the new tribute album to Tom T. Hall that includes his most famous songs for kids, Songs of Fox Hollow, which includes a cover of “I Love” beautifully delivered by Patty Griffin).

A Creature I Don’t Know is Laura Marling’s third album. Since her emergence from the London folk scene in 2007 Laura continues to be one of the most exciting musical talents of her generation. A Creature I Don’t Know is a boldly accomplished and endlessly impressive album. Ten songs of intricate and captivating story telling, buoyed by Marling’s rich voice, evocative lyrics and the precise, confident playing on every track. Her delivery is pitch perfect, her voice going from delicate whisper to brooding murmur and rousing wail, sometimes all in the very same sentence.

Sly and the Family Stone were an American rock, funk, and soul band from San Francisco, California. Active from 1966 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music. During the late ’60s and early ’70s, Sly Stone and his family of funkateers were one of the most popular outfits in the U.S. and beyond. Their blend of classic Soul and future Funk created the blueprint that many other bands still follow over four decades later. This box includes great albums like A Whole New Thing (1967), Dance To The Music (1968), Life (1968), Stand! (1969) and There’s A Riot Goin’ On (1971).
