Doing It in Lagos: Boogie, Pop, & Disco in 1980s Nigeria. "Let's do more music," Godfrey Odili suggests on one of the 20 dance-floor workouts on this energized, sung-mostly-in-English collection, which follows the success of the '80s reissues of Afro-beat synth-pop star William Onyeabor. Fabulous stuff. On Soundway Records.
Bash & Pop. Tommy Stinson formed Bash & Pop after the Replacements broke up in the early 1990s, then abandoned the project after one album. Now, B&P is back with the ragged but right rocked-out Anything Could Happen, which captures a measure of the 'Mats' offhand grace. It comes out Friday, after B&P plays Johnny Brenda's on Tuesday.
Terry Dolan. Self-titled album by San Francisco songwriter released four years after his death and 44 years after it was recorded and shelved by Warner Bros. It's an early-1970s San Francisco Bay-area rock time capsule, featuring pianist Nicky Hopkins, John Cipollina of Quicksilver Messenger Service, and a teenage Neal Schon, later of Journey. On Hidden Moon records.
D.R.A.M. The new Biz Markie? The Hampton, Va., rapper with the sunshiny personality rose to prominence in 2016 with songs about vegetables ("Broccoli") and silly dances ("Cha Cha"). Born Shelley Marshaun Massenburg-Smith, his acronym stands for "Does Real A- Music." Thursday at the Foundry.
Lemon Twigs. There's nothing humble about the Lemon Twigs, the teenage D'Addario brothers whose bio for their Queen-meets-Big Star-meets-Jellyfish debut, Do Hollywood on the 4AD label, compares them to such fellow Long Island luminaries as Lou Reed, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Kaufman, and football great Jim Brown. Thursday at Underground Arts.
