Under the Influence of Giants, Under the Influence of Giants

Loaded with funky rhythms, infectious melodies and high-pitched harmonies, UTIOG is an ultra-groovy mix of influences from the Beatles to the Bee Gees.

Kelis, Kelis Was Here

After her ’03 hit “Milkshake” gave the mainstream a taste of her blend of soul, funk and hip-hop, Kelis’s fourth disc establishes that the sassy singer is here to stay.

OutKast, Idlewild

Continuing as hip-hop’s deliciously outré duo, André 3000 and Big Boi ingeniously incorporate period stylings on the soundtrack to their new movie musical set in the Prohibition era.

Raul Malo, You’re Only Lonely

This intensely romantic album showcases Malo’s haunting vocals on an eclectic range of covers, from the Etta James standard “At Last” to Randy Newman’s “Feels Like Home.”
