On album highlight "It Must Be Dark Tonight," a playful folk tune and duet with Tamara Lindeman of the Weather Station, Driver asks, "If you don't like trouble, my friend, then what is there left to life?" Here, as throughout Careless Thoughts, Driver resolves to find joy even in difficult times. He looks for light in the darkness, and encourages us to do the same. (Tin Angel)

Musically Roger Shah is a man with a considerable amount to say. He's also one with a tireless amount of studio energy with which to say it. However - album-wise - it's not often he does it under his own name. Given the wealth of output, surprisingly perhaps 'No Boundaries' is the first Roger Shah long-player to see the light since 'Openminded?!' back in 2011. Interspaced between have been five mix-compilations, a range of soundtracks & side projects and - under many an alias (most notably Sunlounger and High Noon At Salinas) - several albums. As such you'd be more than forgiven for losing sight of the time slip that's developed between 'Openminded?!' and 'No Boundaries'. Even for studioholics like Roger, albums don't happen overnight. 'No Boundaries' process came together at a more deliberate pace than any of his projects before it. That was almost entirely down to its scope. It took the better part of 3 years for its 30 original tracks (well 29 and a Tisto remix) to be tied together. A frankly massive contingent by any long-playing standards, 'No Boundaries' features a comparably impressive ensemble of singers, songwriters and other artistic partnerships. Moya Brennan, JES, Carla Werner, Natalie Gioia, Jennifer Rene and Susana are just some of the names marshaled to its starry vocal cast. Alongside them Roger's rejoined by singers whose tones have become all-but synonymous with his work. 'No Boundaries' sees the return of regular Shah players such as Yoav, LeiLani, Inger Hansen, Zara Taylor and Adrina Thorpe. As singers, so producer team-ups abound. Aly & Fila, Sied van Riel, Stoneface & Terminal, RAM and Feel are just some of the fellow studio-heads who've rallied to 'No Boundaries' creation.

Seven CD live collection from the metal band. Officially licensed from the archives of the Mark Reale estate, c/o Anthony Reale, The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2 captures the band at their creative and commercial peak, kicking off with shows from their 1981 UK tour. Riot had already developed a solid live reputation and cult fan-base in the UK when they played the Manchester Apollo on 13th October 1981, and the Ipswich Gaumont the following day, on a bill featuring The Rods and headlined by Saxon. Both sets include live favorites 'Outlaw', 'Road Racin', 'Rock City' and 'Warrior'. Cleveland, Ohio's Agora Ballroom was a regular stop-off for rock and metal bands in the '70s and '80s, and their 8th November 1981 show captured the band performing 'Fire Down Under', 'Overdrive', 'Road Racin' and 'Rock City'. Disc 5 was recorded at Paramount Theater, Staten Island in 1983, with the band supporting the new indie release, Born In America. Songs from that album include 'Where Soldier's Rule', 'Born In America', Vigilante Killer' and 'Wings Of Fire', included among The Riot classics 'Altar Of The King' and 'Restless Breed'. Jumping forward 7 years to their 1990 Osaka show in Japan, they rattled off 'Storming The Gates Of Hell', 'Maryanne' and 'Dance Of Death' from the then latest The Privilege of Power, plus 'Bloodstreets', 'Thundersteel' and 'Flight Of The Warrior' from 1988's Thundersteel record, by which time founder Mark Reale was the sole remaining original member. As an extra bonus, this collection is completed by a disc of 1980 writing and rehearsal sessions for what would be their breakthrough album, Fire Down Under, the last with original vocalist Guy Speranza. As well as a number of previously unreleased compositions, it includes early working versions of 'Swords And Tequila' and 'Altar Of The King', giving a unique insight into the genesis of some classic Riot numbers.

UK live six CD set. Riot's story is one of what might have been, and to some degree, a band being (or not) in the right place at the right time. What this live collection does offer is unique, and often raw, insights into the growth and development of an influential hard rock and heavy metal band, as they graduated from small clubs in 1976 through to huge festivals in 1980. Riot formed in 1975, in New York City, when Kon-Tiki guitarist Mark Reale and drummer Peter Bitelli teamed up with bassist Phil Feit and vocalist Guy Speranza. Recording a four-track demo, they added Steve Costello on keyboards, and were subsequently picked up by New York producers Billy Arnell and Steve Loeb, who owned the independent label Fire-Sign Records. Signing to major label Capitol Records, this subsequently led to a UK tour in 1980 supporting Sammy Hagar (from where the Bristol show here was taken), and eventually a slot at the legendary Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington the same year, on a bill featuring Saxon, Judas Priest, Scorpions and headlined by Rainbow. Mastered from tapes in the collection of the estate of founder member and guitarist Mark Reale, The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 captures the band at their formative, early club stages in 1976, where much of their repertoire included songs by the bands that had influenced them, such as their covers on Montrose's 'I Got the Fire', 'Good Rockin' Tonight' and 'Rock Candy', to UFO's 'Shoot Shoot' and Deep Purple's 'Highway Star', included amongst Riot originals, 'Angel', 'Overdrive' and 'Tokyo Rose'. This set concludes with their aforementioned Castle Donington slot in 1980.

In a quick turnaround from last year's Jaguar Palace, country deconstructionist Shane Renfro zooms in on the expansive soundscapes of his desert-weathered debut, swapping extended ballads for strident, meditative messages. Demoed over four days in Marfa and captured in two in Lockhart, the sophomore full-length channels a brisk, unbridled commitment to Renfro's sonic journey, fusing the Texan's Western, psych-hued foundations with dreamy blues and Seventies soul. Slick intro "Tooth Ache" induces the work's weighted trance, layering bendy guitar swells over light, persistent percussion. Yearning "Cold Spell" and luxurious, theological-alluding "Black Madonna, So Divine" nudge at a sweeping romanticism, ruminating on the interplay of intimacy and introspection. Simplistic "Silver Woman" ends on a sweet note, finalizing a distillation of RF Shannon's unique knack for mellow music spiked with trepidation.
