This exclusive  CD set can transport you to a front row seat in London as Dolly performs some of her most popular songs “Coat of Many Colors,” “9 to 5,” and “Jolene,” live in front of her sold-out O2 arena concert. Classics like Dolly’s very first million seller, “Here You Come Again” and “I Will Always Love You,” along with previously unreleased live bonus tracks “Shattered Image” and “My Tennessee Mountain Home,” combine in a memorable collection.

New Orleans-based, indie folk outfit Hurray for the Riff Raff was formed by singer/songwriter/banjo player Alynda Lee, a Bronx-raised, Puerto Rican troubadour who left home at 17 to ride the rails, and eventually landed in the Big Easy. After honing her skills on the washboard with a gang of train-yard musicians called the Dead Man’s Street Orchestra, she picked up the banjo that a close friend had given her and began writing her own songs. While Lee, drummer/violinist Yosi Pearlstein and bass player David Maclay served as the foundation for Hurray for the Riff Raff’s signature blend of folk-blues and southern, gothic Americana, the trio was often rounded out by a rotating cast of accordion, guitar, organ and musical saw players.

King Tuff is the new record from King Tuff – his first for Sub Pop and his second album overall. “Was Dead”, King Tuff’s 2008 debut, captured the attention of the rock underground and quickly blew through its limited pressing (it now resides on ebay, being snatched up for hearty sums). His gem of a new album was produced by Bobby Harlow, of The Go and Conspiracy of Owls, and recorded during a furious two-week run in Detroit.

The soulful piano-based track showcases the warmth and subtle power of Carlile s vocals. It is the cornerstone of an earthy collection that embraces all of her musical influences folk, pop, country, rock, gospel and blues. From the spirited “Hard Way Home” and chilling country blues of “Raise Hell” to the poignant “Rise Again” and ethereal “Just Kids,” Carlile manages to be at once plainspoken and poetic. The rich imagery of “Keep Your Heart Young” evokes childhood dreams with such unerring accuracy it is apt to elicit renewed vows to never grow up while “Save Part Of Yourself” and “100″ wistfully underscore the lifetime impact of a lost love.

Pull It Together is, at first listen, a refreshingly clear-eyed record from Shannon Stephens. It shrugs off layers of orchestration from past records, and instead Stephens assembles a crack band behind to create dusty, lean, and often blues-inspired foundations over which she lays her sweet vocals. And those vocals are at their absolute strongest here. She’s brimming with confidence here, and her voice is rangy and powerful as a result.Pull It Together is surely an album of the moment, one that does revel in personal hope and love while also tackling more pragmatic concerns, like economic hardship.The best example comes in “Faces Like Ours”, her duet with Bonnie “Prince” Billy.
