Essential Full-Length Releases
Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge - Twelve Reasons to Die II
Several members of Wu-Tang are following up the release of last year's A Better Tomorrow with their own solo releases. Raekwon released an album earlier this year and Method Man is set to release one soon. Ghostface Killah seems to be trying to win some uninstantiated contest, though; he released an album late last year shortly after Tomorrow, an album earlier this year, and this new album.
Listen: "Return of the Savage" (featuring Raekwon & RZA)
Listen: "Let the Record Spin" (featuring Raekwon)
Heather Woods Broderick - Glider
Heather Woods Broderick has made a name for herself as a member of bands like Horse Feathers and Efterklang. Recently, though, she's focused on her role in Sharon Van Etten's backing band (they do sound incredible together). Now, she is shifting focus back to her own career. This is her first album under her own name since 2009's From the Ground.
