The Flip is Another Honey

(Snackforce/Megaforce)

The former Soul Coughing front man puts a twist on the typical covers album. The opening track, “Sunshine,” for example, finds him rapping over a John Denver sample. He does something similar with songs by Cheap Trick, Stone Roses and Randy Newman. A refreshing take on a tire concept.

Midnight Oil

Essential Oils

(Sony)

The Aussie rock group offers the ultimate retrospective with this 36-song collection that stretches all the way back to the early days when the political group’s music had a punk, Clash-like edge to it.
