Witty prisoner persona needs sassier soundtrack.
Malachai, Return to the Ugly Side
U.K. duo’s sublime pastiche casts a subliminal spell.
Joell Ortiz, Free Agent
No hits, but he probably deserves a ghetto Pulitzer.
Loch Lomond, Little Me Will Start a Storm
Gently jittery ensemble gradually reveals charms.
Danielson, Best of Gloucester County
God’s kooky indie son gets right with rock.
Bayside, Killing Time
Peevish emo vets recast by iconic alt-rock producer.
