Classic Rock, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Nearly 50 years after he helped invent punk rock, ex-Modern Lovers frontman Jonathan Richman has remained reliably quirky and eclectic with his solo work. Richman is perhaps the quintessential cult artist, and his fans have followed him from distinct releases like the self-explanatory Jonathan Goes Country to the Latin-pop curio Jonathan, Te Vas a Emocionar! In 2016, Richman returned with his first album since 2010, the low-stakes, reliably freewheeling Ishkode! Ishkode!
