Good Kid 4 (LP)

Good Kid

Toronto indie rockers Good Kid are masters at writing ultra-catchy, upbeat indie meets emo that'll keep listeners coming back for more. Their short but sweet Good Kid 4 EP is filled with a ridiculous amount of earworms. The band's ability to create consistently irresistible hooks is their superpower — surely no band of mere mortals should be able to write such ridiculously good, addictive tracks. And yet, here they are. Good Kid 4 deserves all the buzz. Fans of '00s indie and emo won't be able to get enough of this fast, fun listen.

Closer (CD)

Maria Chiara Argiro

Maria Chiara Argiro's Closer is pure leftfield pop bliss. The London-via-Rome singer, pianist, composer & producer wrote the album to evoke the dreamlike feeling she experienced in the time leaning up to its creation — and that's exactly what it feels like. Argiro is a familiar force in the UK jazz, electronic, and classical scenes and while these lovely tracks have pop bones, they're dressed up with hypnotic electronic beats, jazz trumpet, and gauzy synths. Closer is a refreshing listen, the type of album that just hits a little deeper and makes you glad to be alive.

Here in the Pitch (CD)

Jessica Pratt

Jessica Pratt is back with the intriguing, almost otherworldly Here in the Pitch . The songs sound like they've been piped in from some reality adjacent to our own: an alternative existence with all its multifold possibilities, a door leading to a place where the past yet lives. Part of that's due to the gauzy textures, the intimate lyrics, and the melange of genres from a bygone era. Pratt's compositions blend '60s pop, bossa nova, psychedelia and the slightly off-kilter, cinematic stylings of icons like Scott Walker and Judy Garland. It all works splendidly. A transportive, utterly beautiful album that's unlike anything else out there.

Where I've Been, Isn't Where I'm Going (CD)

Shaboozey

Hot off his appearance on Beyonce's Cowboy Carter comes Shaboozey with his top-notch new album, Where I've Been, Isn't Where I'm Goin g. Shaboozey fuses classic country sounds with indie Americana, adds in a dash of hip-hop, and occasionally even some pop. In Shaboozey's hands, this modern melange feels natural, affecting, and utterly satisfying. This is an album with a capital "A," the type of front-to-back listening experience that creates a mood and tells a story that'll stick with you. "A Bar Song (Tipsy)" is a down-and-out anthem that's irresistible and infectious. "Anabelle" will break your heart and "My Fault" (featuring Noah Cyrus) will break it into even smaller pieces. You've got to hear this album: you'll be glad you did.

Why Lawd? [Smoke & Gold & Blue Vinyl] (LP)

NxWorries

When you're listening to NxWorries' latest, life is good. Why Lawd? feels like the album of the summer, with lush, soulful beats, vibey atmospherics, and a throwback, feel-good mood. Anderson .Paak and producer Knxwledge have created something truly special on their second collaboration as NxWorries. This is soul meets hip-hop at its finest: the songs feel contemporary and cool yet they already seem like stone cold classics. Featuring guest appearances from Dave Chappelle, Thundercat, H.E.R., Snoop Dogg, and Earl Sweatshirt.

X's [Crystal Clear Vinyl] (LP)

Cigarettes After Sex

On X's , the tenderly seductive milieu of Cigarettes After Sex moves from dream pop to emotional nightmare. Written as a way of coping with the collapse of a four-year long relationship, the album moves from love-drunk early days to relentless, creeping loss. Cigarettes After Sex has always trafficked in the slow burn; these songs take that simmering tension to a new height. Inspired by melancholic slow dances of the '70s and '80s, X's is moody and quietly devastating.

The Avett Brothers (LP)

The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers are back with a warm and inviting new self-titled album. The band's lilting indie-folk packs quite the emotional punch as the brothers sing about aging and dying, the unpredictability of life, and the twists and turns of even the most well-intentioned of relationships. The melodies are exquisite, with layered compositions featuring banjo, organ, fiddle, piano, and strings. The perfect soundtrack for endless summer days and the cool night breezes that hint of autumn and the dying of the leaves.

Eels Time! (CD)

Eels

With the release of their fifteenth studio album, it is one again Eels Time ! Written in the wake of the pandemic, these new Eels songs feel contemplative, gentle, and ever so slightly off-kilter. E and the band sing about the temporality of life, finding the courage to choose love, and the comfort of pet fish. The deceptively simple lyrics are always eminently relatable and often lead to a surprise gut punch. Eels Time! is one of those albums that perfectly captures certain elements of the human experience: the doubt, the longing, and the emotional connections that make it all worthwhile.

Gemelo (CD)

Angelica Garcia

Angélica Garcia's Gemelo will make you stop in your tracks and take notice. These arresting songs will tap into something deep inside, as the East LA native sings of loneliness and loss in the enchanting, almost delicate first half of the album before moving into the wilder, witchier themes of liberation and healing on the second half. Produced by Chicano Batman's Carlos Arévalo, it's Garcia's first album sung almost entirely in Spanish, a kaleidoscopic, dazzling, powerful melange of Hispanic musical influences and shimmering alt-pop. Garcia has gotten a lot of buzz and for good reason: she's a distinctive, enthralling artist and Gemelo is fantastic.

Dreamachine (CD)

Habibi

Habibi's Dreamachine is filled with the type of songs that'll make you stop what you're doing and take notice. The band's original garage-meets-'60s-girl-group sound has evolved into something a little dreamier, a little more wistful and lovely, with a gritty edge. Opener "On the Road" creates an insistent, entertaining mood from dance beats, searing guitars, hypnotic vocals, and intriguing lyrics. The opening notes of "My Moon" feel like a technicolor romance, all soft hues and twinkling sounds, before morphing into an Eastern psych-influenced bittersweet love song. A beautiful, refreshing, moving album.

L.A. Times [Green Marble Vinyl] (LP)

Travis

L.A. Times is the eclectic, excellent new album from Scottish indie rockers Travis. "Gaslight" is catchy as hell while "Bus" is romantic and wistful. "Raze the Bar" is a '90s style alt-rock anthem while "The River" is a Gaelic folk-inflected rocker. Each song feels like its own world, sometimes its own genre, yet as part of the album, they all build off one another and create their own cohesive, compelling listening experience. The record touches on frontman Fran Healy's experiences living in Los Angeles, a city as diverse and dynamic as these tracks, filled with all the high-highs and low-lows reflected in these songs. Travis continues to evolve and L.A. Times is some of their best, most intimate work in years.

Red Moon Rising (CD)

Robert Jon & The Wreck

Southern-fried rock meets blistering blues rock on Robert Jon & The Wreck's latest. Red Moon Rising is packed with evocative storytelling, red hot riffs, and grooved out basslines. The band incorporates funk flourishes, sing-a-long-ready choruses, and imaginative, urgent lyrics into truly electrifying tracks that'll scratch your blues rock itch. Red Moon Rising is the sort of mood-setting album that'll transport you to a sweatier, sultrier, more down-and-dirty rock 'n' roll world.
