***1/2 (out of four) The joke's on anyone who assumes “Community” funnyman Donald Glover can't rap. Under the Wu-Tang Clan Name Generator-created rap tag Childish Gambino, Glover has followed a handful of promising free albums/mixtapes and dropped one of the year's most bracing hip-hop records with his official debut, “Camp.” Wit and insight marry like reality show stars - wait, the opposite of that - as Glover reflects throughout...

Experimental, textured. Tell us something random about the band, and why that's significant.

***1/2 (out of four) Country music generally remains too unhip of a reference point for the indie music world to touch with much seriousness. So when Brooklyn musician Matthew Houck, a.k.a. Phosphorescent, made an album of Willie Nelson covers about four years ago, it seemed like a curiosity, the kind of thing that would come out of a couple of weekends of obsessing over your dad's vinyl collection. In the time since, however, Houck has proven his commitment to the genre, especially in its classic, well-trod Johnny Cash vein, while continuing to pass as someone comfortable at a Sufjan Stevens...
