Australian composer, guitarist and painter Mick Turner—perhaps best known for his band The Dirty Three, plus turns with Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Cat Power—is back with his first solo record since 2007, Don’t Tell the Driver. The record—heavily textured and dreamy, but big and with a solid rock backbone—is described as a “post-rock rock opera” with “a vague/indecipherable theme of wonder and disenchantment.

The dawning of the new millennium coincided with a new chapter in the career of John Hiatt. After a quarter century of releasing records on major labels five in all he kicked off an over 13-year run as an independent artist, recording a pair of albums with Vanguard before moving to New West, his label home for more than a decade. These albums contain unflinching reflections on the bad old days, weighed against his latter-day front-porch serenity. The collection features 17 songs, at least 2 from each of the 8 albums released between 2000-2012 & the previosly unreleased song “Here To Stay” ft. Joe Bon.
The British husband-and-wife team of Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish impressed even the US country music establishment with How Do You Plead?, an album of self-composed weepies that echoed the classic duets of Johnny Cash with June Carter or George Jones with Tammy Wynette. The follow‑up is even more successful because it is more varied, though it starts (of course) with a pained country ballad, Unhappily Ever After, on which they are joined by the great Kinky Friedman. The duo specialise in finely written studies of marital breakdown, but their bleakest song, the bravely agonised Ashes, Flowers and Dust, deals with the death of parents. Elsewhere, they add a dash of brass and soul to Our Race Is Run, and a Mexican edge to the bittersweet King of the Carnival, and there’s a hint of reconciliation on the cheerfully upbeat Let’s Be Unhappy. Original and inventive.
