The Boss is back! Back by the E Street Band, Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You arrives today (in addition to a new documentary). It’s signature Springsteen; nostalgic in nature, joyous is sound. Today also sees new releases from a couple former Philadelphians including Devon Gilfillian, who re-imagines Marvin Gaye’s 1971 classic What’s Going On, and Melody Gardot who readies Sunset in Blue. Shemekia Copeland delivers Uncivil War, a collection that is steeped in her blues roots but reaching into the world of Americana as well. It includes appearances from Steve Cropper, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Jason Isbell and others. Also, don’t miss new albums from The Mountain Goats, Portland-based songwriter Laura Veirs, a posthumous covers collection from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, and a confident new album from Manayunk-based rockers The Tisburys. #PressPlay & enjoy!
