This is one of those whip-you-around New Music Mondays that requires a fastened seat belt. Hold on tight, kids! We’ve got a fantastic reunion with the Bad Seeds from Nick Cave, and intriguing narrative prog from the Stick Men

They say this is a week for lovers. We’d like to make an addendum: For prog lovers, that is.
We have scorching new jazz from Wayne Shorter for you, along with equally trenchant — and, yeah, loud — stuff from Richard Thompson and Lisa Loeb.

A new year is finally, blessedly, bringing us some new music. After too long away, we’ve got new jazz, new indie pop, new metal and a sleighful of notable reissues to delve into.
[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQEgZNqa8jE&w=500&h=305] A pair of lavish reissues arrive just in time for the Christmas buying season, one a classic Eric Clapton release — maybe his very best — and the other a signature effort from Rush, only days after their induction into a certain hall of fame.
Emerson Lake and Palmer are heard in full, early-1970s flight on Live in California, an archival, long-bootlegged live date.
If you’re missing Levon Helm (who hand-picked the selections for a new live set before passing), or just a few of your old Kiss singles (a box from their classic era on Casablanca is pending), New Music Monday is here for you.
Eric Burdon returns with a scalding collaboration alongside the Greenhornes out of Cincinnati, a band that expertly revives the garage-rock sound of the Animals. There are also new sides from Kid Rock, Nektar and Curved Air.
