Music lover on your list? Then surely we have an album or two for them this year — check out our recommended albums for the 2019 holiday season below!

The Good Lovelies: EvergreenCD $14.99LP $22.99. Reader Reward Card Applies. It's been ten years, and ten Christmas tours since Toronto's The Good Lovelies released their album Under The Mistletoe. In celebration, they decided to capture many of the songs they have been performing over the past ten years on this brand new collection, "Evergreen." Included are three new original songs as well as some familiar chestnuts like "O Holy Night," "Please Come Home For Christmas" and more. (November)

Leon Redbone: Christmas IslandCD $18.99. Reader Reward Price $17.09. Out-of-print for many years, this European re-release of the enigmatic Leon Redbone's 1988 Christmas album comes just a few months after we lost him. Only one week later, Leon's longtime friend Dr. John also said goodbye. The two purveyors of folk, blues, jazz and Tin Pan Alley hook up on this album’s seasonal favourite, "Frosty the Snowman." The whole album is a pleasant mixture of Christmas songs, all in the typically unique Redbone style. (October)

The Highwomen. The HighwomenCD $17.99. RRC Price $16.19.

September)

Sheryl Crow. ThreadsCD $14.99LP $26.99. RRC applies. “I became inspired to record an album of musical experiences with the legacy artists who inspired me to want to be a great songwriter, musician, and producer.

Our Sights & Sounds: May & June 2019

Wednesday, May 08, 2019 at 3:24pm

Norah Jones. Begin Again. CD $10.99LP $17.99. RRC applies. Last year, Jones quietly returned to the studio with the sole intent of following her muse down creative pathways without any expectations. Revelling in the joy of music-making with a true spirit of openness, Jones got together with various friends for brief, largely-improvised sessions to collaborate and experiment. The singles Jones began releasing last summer ran the gamut from riveting electronic experiments to starkly acoustic folk ballads to organ-and-horn drenched soul songs. (Blue Note. April)

The Strumbellas. Rattlesnake. CD $11.99LP $21.99. RRC applies. Rattlesnake marks a stylistic turn from their melancholy, introspective releases, to an uplifting album with songs that focus more on optimism. The album, recorded on the band's home turf in Kingston and Toronto, is a musical step forward from the to-the-rafters scrappy folk aesthetic of their earlier work. The nine-track body of work is the sunny side of the street follow-up to The Strumbellas’ third album, Hope, which featured the hit single ‘Spirits’. (Glassnote. April)
