Forever Sometimes (LP)

Dear Boy

L.A. band Dear Boy’s first full-length album features contributions from AFI’s Hunter Burgan, Passion Pit’s Ian Hultquist, Hazel English and more. The sound is melancholy but often catchy, referencing melodic post-punk, Britpop, and jangle-pop. Singer Ben Grey’s soft voice adds a more modern indie pop touch to the mix, and the band blends its new and old influences well; for example, “Wet Clothes” starts off with a prominent post-punk bassline only to dissolve into swirly indie pop with a hushed chorus.

Solidaritine (CD)

Gogol Bordello

Gogol Bordello’s Solidaritine showcases the band at their genre-crossing best. Whether they’re importing ska rhythms on “Focus Coin” or fusing folkloric fiddle with gritty punk rock “Forces of Victory,” the band creates effective odes to human survival and possibility. It’s an album informed by frontman Eugene Hut’s background as a native Ukrainian, and with award-winning Ukrainian poet Serhiy Zhadan and electro-folk band Kazka appearing on the aforementioned new version of “Forces,” the war the European nation found itself in earlier this year is never far from mind. Produced by Walter Schreifels (Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits) and with another awe-inspiring guest appearance from H.R. of Bad Brains, this is one of Gogol Bordello’s most raucous, righteous albums in years.

A Very Lonely Solstice (CD)

Fleet Foxes

A Very Lonely Solstice is the album version of Fleet Foxes’ December 20th, 2021 concert film of the same name. For fans of the band, it’s pure loveliness. Featuring Robin Pecknold (largely) alone with his acoustic guitar performing within the soaring interiors of Brooklyn’s St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, the songs convey a sense of both the solemn and the sacred. The Resistance Revival Chorus opens and closes the performance, the ethereal voices of the women and non-binary singers lending a timeless, ethereal contrast to Pecknold’s plaintive vocals. There’s a cover of The Bee Gees’ “In the Morning” and the traditional ballad “Silver Dagger” that add moments of sunshine-y pop and haunting English folkloric atmosphere. It’s a rare thing when a band’s live album is one of their finest recordings; A Very Lonely Solstice definitely deserves such a high ranking

The Other Side Of Make-Believe (CD)

Interpol

Interpol takes their sound into dreamy, romantic new territory on The Other Side Of Make-Believe . The Other Side of Darkness, you might call it, considering the band’s early penchant for driving rhythms, gloomy atmospherics, and pointedly bizarre lyrics. This new sonic direction was a choice on the part of the band; after wrapping a successful tour in March 2020, Interpol purposefully chose not to wallow in the too obvious negativity of the time, but instead to explore how, as vocalist/guitarist Paul Banks put it, “the nobility of the human spirit is to recover and rebound.” Of course, this is all filtered through a post-punk lens, so you can still expect angular guitars, aching vocals, and downbeat melodies—but with an air of hope and love for life that brings a prismatic depth to this compelling album.

Vengeance (BLU)

B.J. Novak

A radio host from New York City attempts to solve the murder of a girl he hooked up with and travels down South to investigate the circumstances of her death.

Marci (LP)

Marci

Marta Cikojevic of Montreal’s TOPS steps out on her own in self-assured style with a guileless collection of synth pop songs that brim with unabashed sincerity. She and TOPS bandmate David Carriere have crafted an album of songs that are both catchy and danceable, while still being emotionally honest and down-to-earth.

Gothic Luxury (CD)

Meechy Darko

Gothic Luxury is the striking new debut from Meechy Darko of Flatbush Zombies. Working with Dot Da Genius (Lil Nas X, Kid Cudi, Jhené Aiko), the production is ice cold, the lyrics incisive, the overall vibe cathartic. It’s a powerful, hard-hitting album, written in the aftermath of Meechy’s father’s killing by the Miami police in 2020. Gothic Luxury is compelling from beginning to end, filled with nuance, emotion, and impact.

Midpoint (CD)

Tom Chaplin

Keane's Tom Chaplin returns with an intimate new solo album, Midpoint . Although Chaplin has said the songs are "sparse" compared to the usual Keane fare, there's a lot of emotional nuance to these lovely, emotionally vulnerable tracks that makes them feel like a rich, layered listening experience. Written after the band's tour was stalled thanks to the pandemic, the songs speak to the beauty and fragility of the human experience. There's something comforting about the sense of connection that emanates from Chaplin's songwriting; Midpoint is the type of album that feels like a companion through good times and bad.

Harmony House (CD)

Dayglow

Dayglow’s second album, Harmony House , finds Sloan Struble drawing more on ‘70s and ‘80s pop influences. Both “Medicine” and “Close To You” offer familiar retro vibes with a light, melodic touch. “Something” is a standout track for its lively drum beat and strong vocal melody. Struble continues to grow as a songwriter with a natural ear for singalong melodies and stylish arrangements.

9 [Deluxe Metallic Silver Vinyl Edition] (LP)

Pond

Last year, Australian psych-rockers Pond released the excellent, eclectic 9 . Now they’re back with a souped-up deluxe version, featuring four new tracks. The album kicks off with bewitching female vocals and hypnotic melodies on “Song for Agnes,” before moving into the funked-out danceable grooves of “America’s Cup” and transitioning into soaring, symphonic mode on “Take Me Avalon I’m Young.” The album slips into and out of genres and moods with ease, taking listeners on an intriguing, serpentine journey to the new bonus tracks. This deluxe segment of the LP starts with the desperate and driven “Lights of Leeming,” a tribute to the chaotic desire to break the monotony of suburbia by any means necessary. If you’ve been sleeping on Pond, 9 should wake you right up.

Jurassic World Dominion (BLU)

Jurassic World

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are joined by Oscar-winner Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill in a bold, timely and breathtaking new adventure.

Denim & Diamonds (CD)

Nikki Lane

One of the finest voices in modern country returns with Denim & Diamonds ! Strutting her rock stuff on tracks like “First High” and the Wanda Jackson-esque foot stomper “Black Widow,” Nikki Lane has brought along a team of heavy hitters with Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) producing, and members of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Autolux lending their musical talents.
