Throughout the majority of her time as vocalist and frontperson for D.C. art punk band Priests, Katie Alice Greer was also working on far more experimental solo material. When her solo tracks, one-off collaborations with other artists, or EP releases cropped up occasionally, they often took the form of harsh, overblown electronics or slow-moving noise, a wildly different approach than the relatively straightforward, guitar-heavy bombast of her main band. When Priests dissolved in late 2019, Greer relocated from D.C. to L.A. right at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on solo work that would expand on the experimental spirit that incubated on those earlier releases.

Carbon, JB Dunckel’s first album in four years, considers the recent uncertainties that have befallen the planet and explores diffuse visions of how a better future might look. There are meditations on existential bliss (the airy, chiming Cristal Mind) and egotistical escapist fantasies (Sex UFO, which can’t help but recall Jeff Bezos phallic rocket).

Alternative, Indie | Label: Loma Vista Recordings

There's a moment on the third album by Soccer Mommy—aka Sophie Allison— when she sings, on "Still," "I don't know how to feel things small/ It's a tidal wave or nothing at all." And while she's certainly hinted at such extremes in the past (including on 2020's adult-alternative hit "Circle the Drain"), Sometimes, Forever shows just how low she can go. As always, though, it's done with an almost-ethereal beauty; producer Daniel Lopatin has said that the Roches' 1982 song "Losing True" was a vocal influence for the record. "I'd say that song is the birth of dream pop," he told Pitchfork. "And Sophie's record is the death of it!" Indeed, "Darkness Forever"—which feels as dark and moody as Medicine or the Cocteau Twins—opens with the line "head in the oven … simmering low."

After two live dates cut for the long-suffering faithful, Fink – comprising singer/songwriter/guitarist Fin Greenall, bassist Guy Whittaker, and drummer Tim Thornton – offer their first new studio material in three years. Hard Believer is, for the most part, a slow burner; one that employs a more varied, albeit moodier set of textures and sounds than its predecessor, 2011's Perfect Darkness. Recorded at Hollywood Sound with producer/engineer Billy Bush (Garbage, Foster the People), the pace here is generally slow – even dirge-like in places – but the timbral palette that illustrates these melancholy songs puts them across in often unexpected ways. The opening title track begins on the blues tip (with Greenall once more revealing his great debt to guitarist Davy Graham). Spare, gently reverbed acoustic guitar and stomp box initiate, but at a tad over a minute in, a multi-tracked vocal chorus subtly enters, followed shortly thereafter by kick drum, skeletal bassline, electric guitar, more echo, piano, and more lathered-on effects to erect a stoned crescendo inside the repetitive-to-the-point-of-hypnosis groove.

Next month, the team of Jessie Buckley and Bernard Butler will release their album For All Our Days That Tear The Heart. Buckley is an Oscar-nominated movie star, and if you’ve seen Wild Rose, then you already know she can sing. Butler was the guitar wizard in Suede when that band made their first two albums, and he’s gone on to a lot of other projects since then. The two of them have been working on music together for a few years, and we’ve already posted their early singles “The Eagle & The Dove” and “Seven Red Rose Tattoos.” Today, they’ve shared another one.

Der Dialekt-Blues-Poet Alex Miksch ist ein Unikat, das für seine emotionale Wucht gerühmt wird. Mit rauer Stimme und famosem Gitarrenspiel vermag er es wie kein anderer österreichischer Liedermacher, Erlebtes und Beobachtetes in Texte zu verwandeln und in Musik einzubetten. Sein musikalisches Schaffen ist durch die Verarbeitung seines bewegten Lebens geprägt und umfasst sechs Alben, die zu den Glanzstücken heimischer Dialektmusik gehören, darunter das 2019 veröffentlichte Werk „Nur a Opfe“, welches von der Kritik mit besonderem Lob bedacht wurde.

The British singer-songwriter and Brit Awards winner has already proven that George Ezra is a true "golden boy" with his first two number one albums "Wanted On Voyage" (2014) and "Staying At Tamara's" (2018) and hits like "Budapest," "Blame It On Me," "Paradise" and "Shotgun."

New wave and glam rock act Rose Tiger share their brand new EP ‘The Shallows ACT.1’. Fronted by the charismatic French singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cyprien “Wendy” Jacquet, their new record finds them crafting a collection of songs that sonically tows the line between theatrical rock and indie-leaning elements.

Purity Ring have followed up last year’s single “soshy” with another song called “graves.” Whereas the former track leaned into the dark and creeping feel of the duo’s early work, this new one is — despite its morbid title — neon bright and infused with a crystalline EDM feel.

As great as the latest wave of '90s nostalgia, especially by young female artists, is, a lot of it tends toward the lo-fi bedroom vibe. Horsegirl, however, has surprising muscle, heft and depth. Which is even more incredible when you realize the members are so young that one of them is only just graduating from high school not long after their debut album arrives. The Chicago trio—formed out of School of Rock classes—knows their stuff: They reportedly cite My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth (including Kim Gordon's memoir, Girl in a Band) and the documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke as influences that brought them together, and they chose to work with legendary indie-rock producer John Agnello, known for his work with Dinosaur Jr., The Breeders and Kurt Vile. But all that name-dropping would mean nothing if they didn't have the chops to back it up.

A more literal return to form, Blood Like Lemonade builds on the familiar downtempo grooves that filled Morcheeba's 2008 effort Dive Deep, but this time with original vocalist Skye Edwards back in the fray. Right from the opening dusty, minor-keyboard chord, the album is instantly identifiable for fans as stony, late-night grooves combine with melodies that are both pop-minded and soul-spirited. All the organic elements that sit on top of the slow, rolling drum machines are back, as is the sinister underbelly of their early material, although here it's amped up a touch. The title track references “drinking blood like lemonade,” while “Recipe for Disaster” begins “Wanna know why there's a dead guy in my dining room” before unveiling a story that's somewhere between the Jesse James legend and Natural Born Killers. The sweet tricks are Edwards using her velvet voice to make it all sound delicious, along with her ability to be equally effective on the breezy, positive numbers like “I Am the Spring.” Add “Crimson,” which would be the quintessential Morcheeba song if “Rome Wasn't Built in a Day” didn't exist, and Blood Like Lemonade exceeds expectations, coming in a close second behind fan favorite Big Calm.

One of the most popular adult alternative rock bands of the 1990s, the Goo Goo Dolls rose to prominence with major hits like "Name" and "Iris," earning a widespread audience receptive to their mix of jangling guitar-driven pop and acoustic balladry. Often compared early in their career to the Replacements, they managed to refine and mainstream their sound, going on to sell millions of records to audiences largely unfamiliar with their influences.
