Blondshell | Partisan Records

Having previously used the name BAUM, Sabrina Teitelbaum has reinvented herself as Blondshell, on her new self-titled debut album. Predominantly influenced by the likes of Hole, The Cure and Interpol, among many more, the singer-songwriter from New York tells honest stories of heartbreak and hope. Through difficult themes of addiction and substance abuse, Blondshell is rewarding, fearless and an extremely bold body of work.

Rat Saw God

Wednesday | Dead Oceans

Rat Saw God is the outstanding fifth studio album by American rock band Wednesday. The Asheville quintet have previously paid homage to those that have influenced them, but on their latest record, we see what they’re really made of. As the album progresses and transitions, the tension grows, with scorching riffs and colossal beats all the way to a satisfying conclusion. Emotional and raw, this latest record is proof that Wednesday are one of the most exciting bands around.

The Worm

HMLTD | Lucky Number

British rock sensation HMLTD go all out on their second studio album. With a post-apocalyptic tone, their latest record was created over the course of two years with a cast of 47 musicians – including a gospel choir and a 16-piece string orchestra. The record skitters through various tones and sounds, with joyous, optimistic and at times, some rather bleak tracks. Despite that, The Worm is an incredible feat and is going to certainly divide opinion.

Why Does The Earth Give Us People To Love?

Kara Jackson | September Recordings

Illinois poet and singer-songwriter Kara Jackson introduces us to her stunning debut album, Why Does the Earth Give Us People to Love?. Kara says of the album title, “the question, is driven by grief. Why do we show up on this world alongside one another?”. Reminiscing on events in her life that killed her spirit, Kara Jackson wonderfully blends folk music and poetic alt-country to tell her emotional story. Original and sincere, Kara Jackson is impressive as she navigates love, loss and grief.

No Highs

Tim Hecker | kranky

Veteran Canadian electronic musician and composer Tim Hecker presents his dynamic thirteenth studio album. Despite being physically discomforting to listen to at times, the ominous, suspenseful and mysterious tones are hypnotic and generally soothing. With a haunting combination of strings, processed electronics, horns, and cathedral keys, No Highs is an ambient haze and cinematic masterpiece.
