A Real Good Kid

Alternative/Indie Rock

Leaving Ibiza in the rearview, Posner doubles-down on the introspection with his heartbreaking third effort. Named after a devastating line that ends the album, this is Posner reflecting on the loss of his father, a friend, and a relationship, processing his grief in a simple but pure manner. Standouts like the relatively upbeat "Song About You" and "Move On" balance production wonders like "Wide Open" and the tear-jerking "How It's Supposed To Be."

Political Folk

Historically, the Weavers were the vital link between the leftist People's Songs movement of the '50s and the folk revival that emerged in the wake of the Kingston Trio in the '50s. Musically, the foursome delivered powerful harmonies and unearthed many songs that would become folk standards. This iconic live album features the Weavers in their pure form, minus the pop arrangements of their early singles, performing their best known tunes in front of a clearly delighted audience.
