Kaitlin Butts’ what else can she do is one of the top releases out April 15.
After last week’s blockbuster slate of album releases, things slow down a bit on April 15. But terrific sleepers still shine through, starting with rising country singer Kaitlin Butts and thematically ambitious cross-genre polymath Samora Pinderhughes. Mal Blum returns with songs about travel and isolation, Jerry Paper finds freedom in shaking one’s body, and an archival recording captures Dave Brubeck as his quartet is unexpectedly reduced to a trio on short notice. On this week’s New Music Friday, contributors Cyrena Touros and Keanna Faircloth join Radio Milwaukee’s Tarik Moody and guest host Stephen Thompson.
