Real Estate finds tranquility, but breaks little new ground on ‘In Mind’

Martin Courtney, now a father, leads the New Jersey indie rockers through an appropriately domesticated set of tunes.

‘T2 Trainspotting’ is messy, inconsistent and entertaining all at once

Sequel to the iconic 1996 film, ‘Trainspotting,’ will charm fans of the original, but suffers from misguided direction and a cumbersome plot.

Four brilliant and unsettling fictional podcasts

Though they may not have the audience of ‘Serial,’ these four podcasts will suck you right in.

Ryan Adams perfects his melancholy, widescreen take on 80s heartland rock on ‘Prisoner’

Though it hardly breaks any new ground, Adams’ 16th studio album finds him moving effortlessly from strength to strength.

Sinai Vessel’s ‘Brokenlegged’ is a luminous example of why emo has endured

North Carolina band’s second full-length is a richly textured, complex cross-section of the best elements of the genre.

‘A Shadow in Time’ is one of William Basinski’s most powerful works

Ambient composer returns to the theme of loss, framing an intangible feeling through two remarkable pieces.

Nine Inch Nails return on the slight, elusive ‘Not the Actual Events’

Though sprinkled with some terrific ideas, the songs on the band’s new EP often fail to justify their own labyrinthine constructions.

Winter break’s most overlooked releases

From Grouper’s magnificent ‘Paradise Valley’ 7” to Brian Eno’s return to ambient music, these are a few significant works that fell under the radar over the holidays.

‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ remains the defining holiday classic

The Vince Guaraldi Trio’s beautiful score to the classic TV special remains the jewel in the crown of a genre full of horrors, oddities and low points.

‘Slop’ marks Forth Wanderers as one of the best young indie bands in the country

Though some of their members are barely out of high school, this Montclair, New Jersey quintet is crafting some of the most quietly sophisticated punk in America.

A final look at the life and career of Leonard Cohen

A brief examination of the singular legacy of the legendary Canadian singer/songwriter, who died last week at the age of 82.

Julian Koster to bring ‘The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air)’ to the Iron Horse next Monday

‘Welcome to Night Vale’ side podcast, starring Neutral Milk Hotel member, will be performed live in Northampton.

Jacob Kirkegaard’s ‘4 Rooms’ is a truly post-apocalyptic ambient album

If that ‘Soothing Sounds of Nature’ compilation you have is getting old, try this unsettling but seasonally appropriate masterpiece.

‘Homeworlding’ cements Fraternal Twin as one of indie rock’s up-and-comers

On his second release with Fraternal Twin, Quarterbacks bassist Tom Christie quietly asserts himself as a creative force.

Bon Iver brilliantly deconstructs itself on “22, A Million”

Opaque and obtuse, “22, A Million” is an anxious, fractured, but ultimately rewarding listen.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds deliver an unforgettable elegy

“Skeleton Tree” is a monumental work of grief, love and resilience in the face of unimaginable tragedy.

Angel Olsen’s stirring vision is fully realized on ‘My Woman’

The Southern singer/songwriter bends Americana and all of its tropes at will to fit her lonely, spacious and elegant songs.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘E.MO.TION: Side B’ perfectly effortless and bright

Even a collection of outtakes from the Canadian pop star can rival most artists’ regular studio albums.

A sneak peek at UMass’ fall semester Fine Arts lineup

A first look at the packed schedule of events and concerts on the table this season
