The latest from Snow Patrol, Rebelution, O'Brother and more
Welcome to the first new album releases of 2012! As usual, the music industry is getting the calendar year off to a slow start. Aside from Northern Irish rockers Snow Patrol (pictured), most of the artists releasing albums this week are not marquee names. Among them: rising reggae stars Rebelution and Southern indie rockers O'Brother. We've got full reviews of those releases, plus quick takes on a few others, including the Little Willies, David Crowder*Band, SafetySuit and Big Gigantic.—Andy Hermann and Lucy Mueller, Metromix
