Nikki Lane – Highway Queen

She sounds like she stepped out of the hills of East Tennessee in the late 60s.  There is a seductive smoothness to her raspy, breathy voice.

Goat – Requiem

What it sounds like to me is the soundtrack that should be playing in the gift shop after you get off of the Disney Jungle Cruise or maybe it is the music you hear in the waiting room of the spa that is in the hotel where you stay during your down time while on safari in Africa.  

Mastodon – Emperor Of Sand

This record sounds like what Black Sabbath could have evolved into if Ozzy had stayed clean and the 80s never happened.

Osmosis Jones

This album could easily be disc 7 of Time Life’s 14 disc set of early 2000s Top 40.
