"Supernova," Ray LaMontagne
Release date: April 25
Why we like it: It’s never been Ray LaMontagne’s style to go for the grand gesture; instead he draws the listener in as the courtly reluctant romantic. On “Supernova,” with a major assist from The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach as producer, he does so with an easy charm, steeping his sound in the ‘70s Southern California past, while sounding effortlessly fresh.
