Monday • Southgate House Revival

“Feel the Chill,” the first song on Blitzen Trapper’s latest, 2013’s succinctly titled VII, finds the Portland, Ore., outfit in new territory — it sounds like Kid Rock doing Mellow Gold-era Beck covers, its funky beats, harmonica flourishes and Southern-fried guitar lines almost enough to inspire dance-floor movement.

The cover of Grieves’ fourth full-length album, Winter & the Wolves, features the Seattle-based rapper standing in a wintery landscape, his black-clad frame engulfed by snow and ice.
