Featured New Releases
DMX - Undisputed
DMX returns with his lucky seventh studio album, "Undisputed," his first since 2006 and a perpetual spotlight that swirled rumors of its release for several years. His rhymes continue to be merciless and peppered with special guests, including Sean Kingston and up-and-comer Machine Gun Kelly, who is featured in the video for "I Don't Dance."
He made a few tour appearances this summer, hitting several east coast dates and performing at the California stops of Rock the Bells 2012.
If You Like: Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Notorious B.I.G.
Recommended Track: "I Don't Dance"
Dave Matthews Band - Away From The World
After a long hiatus from working with each other, the Dave Matthews Band reunites with producer Steve Lillywhite to create an album filled with songs that are reminiscent of the band's earlier work. This collaboration has created an album that has ambitious jam-band-quality songs mixed in with a few poppy radio-friendly tunes. DMB continues to be one of the world's most successful touring acts and this new album will fit nicely into the band's catalogue.
If You Like: Phish, Dispatch, Ben Harper
Recommended Track: "Drunken Soldier"
Little Big Town - Tornado
As we close out a season of great summer songs, few celebrate the warm months quite like country music. While becoming a mainstay group in a very solo-centric genre, Little Big Town reached their first #1 country radio hit with "Pontoon," a fairly subdued song about an easy summer day out on a boat.
The rest of the album turns it up a notch, especially the first track, "Pavement Ends," as the four join forces in a way only a whole group can muster up and outshine the singer/songwriters that typically dominate.
If You Like: Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts
Recommended Track: "Pavement Ends"

In TV Shows, be sure to check out the new season of Sons of Anarchy. This adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's (MC) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that, Charming.
The MC must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. Behind the MC's familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. The seduction of money, power, and blood.
This season begins with Jax and Tara as the club's new king and queen after learning the truth behind his father's death and facing the consequences of the club's illicit deeds. Stripped of his patch after Jax discovers he was complicit in John Teller's death, Clay recovers from gunshot wounds that nearly killed him while Gemma is faced with a new life without the comfort of her family.
Also in TV Shows, see Revolution before it premieres on network TV next week! In this epic adventure, a family struggles in an American landscape of empty cities, militias and freedom fighters, where every piece of technology has blacked out forever.
