What makes children turn out the way they do? Why is it that good parents don't always turn out good kids? Judith Rich Harris questions the assumption that nurture is the crucial factor. Using examples from folklore, literature, and scientific research, Harris puts forth the electrifying theory that children aren't socialized by their parents, they're socialized by other children. It is what happens outside the home, while kids are in the company of their peers, that matters most.

Folk, Acoustic, Singer-Songwriter | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:45:06 | 104 MB
Label: Rootbeat Records | Release Year: 2017

This is the first album in five years from a highly original singer-songwriter. Jack Harris was born in Wales and as a teenager was feted in Texas, where he played the SXSW festival and won the Kerrville festival new folk award, previously awarded to Gillian Welch. He has a deep, commanding voice, and is backed here by his own finger-picked guitar and an assortment of instruments, including fiddle, keyboards and percussion, played by producer Gerry Diver, famed for his work with Sam Lee and Lisa Knapp. The melodies mix influences from Americana to British folk, while the poetic, often surreal lyrics range from the powerful, apocalyptic vision of Vanished Birds to the jaunty, finely written James Joyce tribute Molly Bloom. It’s a compelling set that was made possible through a crowdfunding campaign.

Fables of the Reconstruction was intentionally murky, and Lifes Rich Pageant was constructed as its polar opposite. Teaming with producer Don Gehman, who previously worked with John Mellencamp, R.E.M. developed their most forceful record to date. Where previous records kept the rhythm section in the background, Pageant emphasizes the beat, and the band turns in its hardest rockers to date, including the anthemic "Begin the Begin" and the punky "Just a Touch." But the cleaner production also benefits the ballads and the mid-tempo janglers, particularly since it helps reveal Michael Stipe's growing political obsessions, especially on the environmental anthems "Fall on Me" and "Cuyahoga." The group hasn't entirely left myths behind – witness the Civil War ballad "Swan Swan H" – but the band sound more contemporary both musically and lyrically than they did on either Fables or Murmur, which helps give the record an extra kick. And even with excellent songs like "I Believe," "Flowers of Guatemala," "These Days," and "What if We Give It Away," it's ironic that the most memorable moment comes from the garage rock obscurity "Superman," which is sung with glee by Mike Mills.
