New Music (Part 2): Rayland Baxter and Chilly Gonzales

“Album of the Week” belongs to David Ramirez (see post), but with three great albums released this week, I’ve separated them into two posts.  This is part 2:

Feathers and FishHooks is the debut album from Nashville’s Rayland Baxter.  Earlier this summer, he played at 99X’s Unplugged in the Park at Park Tavern and luckily for Atlanta, he’s returning October 6th…  opening for Grace Potter & the Nocturnals at The Tabernacle! (tickets)

“Love is all I have to give.  Won’t you tell me you’re the one for me?”

Last, but not least, is Solo Piano II by Chilly Gonzales.  Also known for his electronic albums, including the hit single “Never Stop” in 2010, Gonzales follows the success of 2004’s Solo Piano with an equally impressive sequal.  He also collaborates with Feist often and plays piano on one of my favorite recent discoveries, Multiply, a soulful and funky album by Jamie Lidell.
