On the Rise: Lynn Drury returns with new album

The songwriter releases Rise of the Fall at Chickie Wah Way Sept. 22.
Lynn Drury didn't pick up a guitar or start writing music until her mid-20s, but when she did, the songs poured out. With Rise of the Fall, her eighth studio album out Sept. 29 via CSB Roxy Music, Drury was at the helm for the first time, doing her own production (along with co-production from Rene Coman, bassist with the New Orleans Latin-rock band The Iguanas) and offering a more intimate emotive collection of songs influenced heavily by her roots.

Close to home: New Orleans band The Deslondes releases Hurry Home

The band's second full-length album is out June 23

On new record, The Mountain Goats channel their inner Goths

The band performs at Republic May 26
The Mountain Goats' May release, Goths, name-checks Siouxsie and the Banshees, Andrew Eldritch (The Sisters of Mercy) and Robert Smith, among others. But for an album that reflects on the icons and artifacts of morose-to-grandiose goth culture, some of its songs can seem positively cheery.
