    S.S. Coachella Cruise, Day One: Father John Misty, Yeasayer, !!!, Pulp

    The S.S. Coachella set out to sea rather unceremoniously. There weren't horns, not a streamer in sight, and no one smashed bottles against the body of the ship.

    Best Albums of 2011: Fleet Foxes' Helplessness Blues

    ​It felt like an eternity -- 35 months between Fleet Foxes' 2008 self-titled debut and their 2011 followup. But for a record as brilliantly crafted as Helplessness Blues, it was well worth the three-year wait. The record's up for a Grammy in the Best Folk Album category and it has received gener ...

    Top Americana Albums of 2008

    Picking the best folk and Americana records of the year isn't nearly as hard as discarding those great records that just didn't feel right stuck in the category.
