Former members of Olivia Tremor control return as Circulatory System: we've got a preview of new work from their upcoming album; Athens, GA neo-psych group Elf Power releases their best CD of the decade; The Black Keys get in touch with their softer side; folk singer Laura Gibson shares some old blues; Gnarls Barkley return as the 'odd couple'; West African artist Etran Finatawa has a powerful new collection of desert blues; and hip-hop chameleon Tim Fite produces his most ambitious record to date.
