Romantic Images (CD)

Molly Burch

Molly Burch’s Romantic Images is a strong contender for the feel good indie pop record of the summer. Heck, maybe even the year. The album is a sonic evolution for Burch, who moves away from familiar themes of anxiety and heartbreak and towards new sonic sensations of confidence and celebration. It’s also her first effort where Burch places production capabilities into the hands of others; in this case, the wonderfully suitable duo Tennis. The result is a smart, upbeat, insanely catchy collection of songs, each seemingly better than the last. Ideal for indie fans who can get down with the shadows but are ready for a bolder, more danceable listening experience.

Silver Linings (CD)

Less Than Jake

Ska-punk favorites Less Than Jake have released Silver Linings , their 9th studio album and the first without Vinnie Fiorello - the band's longtime drummer and lyricist. The catchy single "Lie To Me" is a quick blast of nostalgia with those characteristic horns and singer/bassist Roger Lima's nasal voice, now singing lyrics penned by the other band members. Despites lines like, "All these years and my nerves are spent," driving pop-punk tracks like "Dear Me" are proof that the band's energy has never slackened - and is possibly reinvigorated by new drummer Matt Yonker (Teen Idols). The album also includes a tribute to The Descendents' Bill Stevenson.

Downhill From Everywhere (CD)

Jackson Browne

Jackson Browne’s Downhill from Everywhere is another pearl in a string of classic (and future classic) releases. Browne sounds as urgent as ever as he tackles themes of mortality, the search for answers, and the societal s&%*storm we’ve all been living through. His lyrics are anything but easy listening yet there’s a cozy, lived-in quality to his bluesy backroads rock ’n’ roll melodies that makes them suitable for both windows-down driving or fist-raised rebellion. Thought-provoking, rollicking, and spirited, Downhill from Everywhere is Browne at his best.

Hella Love (CD)


Hella Love is a love letter to San Francisco… Marinero takes you on a tour of his favorite spots and memories of the city. The sweetness of his songs evoke the warmness of the best Brian Wilson and Arthur Lee compositions along with the romanticism of ’70s Mexican pop, with lush orchestration and layered vocals.

Monument (CD)

Molchat Doma

Belarusian perfectors of the chilly post-punk sound (you can hear them in a meme gif about bats in a goth club) Molchat Doma oscillate from Joy Division/early Sisters of Mercy love letters like "Otveta Net" to more melodic synth delights like "Discoteque." The latter song may owe much to Depeche Mode, but like Drab Majesty, Molchat Doma inject their own sense of dark joy into these impeccable tracks. "Ne Smeshno" is downright creepy with its plodding bassline and wildly echoing vocals - just one of many highlights on Monument , a solid set of sophisticated, interesting darkwave.

From Exile (LP)

The Menzingers

The Menzingers have reimagined their 2019 album Hello Exile . The new album, From Exile , which was re-written and re-recorded from their homes at the beginning of COVID-19 lockdown, features intriguing acoustic versions of the original tracklist. The rendering of these melodic punk songs into Americana works particularly well on "Last To Know" with its sweet swells of strings and gently chugging rhythm. "Strangers Forever" is another strong reworking, swaying and soaring, and resolving satisfyingly.

The Million Masks Of God (CD)

Manchester Orchestra

After the loss of a band member's father, Manchester Orchestra focused on the theme of life after death with a characteristic intensity on their sixth studio album, The Million Masks of God . There is an epic feel to these dramatic songs that blend subtle electronic touches with walls of guitar and affecting vocals. "Bed Head" is electrifying throughout, for example, while "Keel Timing" offers strong dynamics, brooding and building into an emotional chorus.

Earache Presents: The New Wave Of Rock N Roll [Red Vinyl] (LP)

Various Artists

Earache Records' new compilation of guitar rock bands is a treat for anyone tired of the various trendy “indie rock” sounds, focusing on powerful, blues & classic rock-influenced acts like Elles Bailey and Verity White. '80s and '90s rock elements are frequent here too, as evidenced by Hannah Wicklund and Tomorrow Is Lost - “We Are The Lost” is a highlight for sure - or Matt Mitchell & the Coldhearts. It's an exciting collection of talented bands that may not yet be on your radar.

Music From Patch Cord Productions (CD)

Mort Garson

Music From Patch Cord Productions is a collection of rare and never-before-released music from electronic music pioneer Mort Garson. Movie themes and radio ads combine with alternate takes from his classic 1976 album Mother Earth's Plantasia for an exhilarating mixed bag of Moog magic. The moods range from brooding psychedelia ("Ode to an African Violet") to exuberant funk ("Dragonfly") to cheerful dancefloor magic ("Space Walker").

Influences (CD)


Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene has released a solo album as K.D.A.P. (Kevin Drew a Picture), entitled Influences . The title reflects the fact that Drew reached back to his early electronic and ambient music interests for this intriguing, instrumental set. “The Slinfold Loop” is lovely and minimalist while “Dooms Dive” brings in a bit of a post-punk feel with its busy rhythms. The album has a joyously experimental vibe that is frequently uplifting, as on the freewheeling synth track, “Explosive Lip Balm.”

Afrique Victime (CD)

Mdou Moctar

Mdou Moctar continues to expand the horizons of the Tuareg music tradition with his new album, A frique Victime , incorporating field recordings and other eclectic sounds into his '70s/'80s-inspired Saharan rock. “Chismiten” is an exciting album opener, quickly getting your feet moving with its busy rhythm and lively guitar. Moctar sings about history, religion, equal rights and also love in his sincere, sometimes scratchy tenor. “Tala Tannam” may be a gently grooving lullaby, but the epic title track is a blistering takedown of colonialist brutality in West Africa. The latter combines a strong melody with gritty guitar, laser-like drum sounds, abruptly picking up the speed two thirds in and breaking out into fierce guitar solos.

Justice Society

The Flash breaks through the time space barrier and finds himself in the middle of World War II! He joins up and fights alongside Wonder Woman who has assembled a team of Golden Age heroes called The Justice Society.
