1. MUSIC: Same Something Different, Jake Walden
After 2008’s Alive and Screaming, which was all about heartbreak, out L.A.-based singer-songwriter Walden rebounds with a passionate new album — completely funded by fan support — that celebrates love, hope, and self-acceptance. Also adept at exorcising personal demons, Walden wraps his warm, raspy vocals around an anthemic rerecording of old fave “We Are Not Broken” and a stellar cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You.”
