TV On the Radio, Steven Bernstein, Yo La Tengo

I Was a Lover

TV on the Radio is an avant-garde rock group from Brooklyn known for bold and trippy blends of free jazz, psychedelia and electronica.

Knives of Summertime

Sparklehorse - the musical brainchild of Mark Linkous - returns after a five year hiatus with another collection of melancholy melodies.

No Radio

Dirty on Purpose has drawn comparisons as diverse as R.E.M. and Sigur Ros. The New York rock group makes music that's at once aggressive and quiet.

Boy in the Boat

Jazz trumpeter Steven Bernstein is known for surprising shifts in form and style. He was music director for John Lurrie's Lounge Lizards, co-leader of the group Spanish Fly, the arranger for the Kansas City Band and more, including his own Sex Mob project. Bernstein has recorded with a diverse group of artists like Aretha Franklin and rapper Tricky. Here he's with the Millennial Territory Orchestra.

Rock and Roll

Now 70 years old, Jerry Lee Lewis is still the bad boy of rock and roll. For his latest recording he pairs with Bruce Springsteen, Kid Rock and, on this featured track, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.

The Heart Bionic

The son of a famous country singer, Bobby Bare Jr. has made his own way in the world of country rock with ambitious, gritty recordings that are part pop, part country and sometimes psychedelic.

Pass the Hatchet I Think I'm Goodkind

Yo La Tengo (Spanish for "I've Got It") formed in New Jersey more than 20 years ago. In two decades of making music the group has released a dozen albums of eclectic, adventurous rock. Their latest CD is a mix of garage punk and orchestral chamber pop.
