Songs From The Elkhorn Trail (CD)

Jim Lindberg

Jim Lindberg trades black leather for dirty denim on his new acoustic album, Songs from the Elkhorn Trail . The Pennywise singer has always been a nimble, thoughtful songwriter, and it's very cool to see how he applies those skills to a more rootsy folk-punk sound. These songs could hold their own among the story-driven workingman's rootsy rock of Lucero or Drive By Truckers--although Lindberg's vibe is a bit more upbeat, his choruses sometimes more anthemic. Gritty, authentic, and approachable, Songs from the Elkhorn Trail  feels like an old friend.

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

40 Oz. To Fresno (CD)

Joyce Manor

Written during quarantine and with a title inspired by an auto-corrected text message about Sublime (classic auto-correct), Joyce Manor’s 40 Oz. To Fresno is rife with boundless energy. There’s a real desire for freedom underlying these tightly-constructed, short-but-sweet punk tracks and that lust for life is infectious. So are the choruses. Whether Joyce Manor’s getting gritty or reveling in hook-laden, propulsive punk, these tracks were meant to be turned up loud, meant to be your new anthem. This is the good stuff—pure punk rock with roots in power pop, college rock, and real deal DIY ethos.

Time's Arrow (CD)


Ladytron are back with one of their best records in recent memory, Time's Arrow . The band’s distinctive crystalline, icy sound is as darkly enchanting as always, but this time there’s some light amongst the shadows. The mood of the album moves naturally from tightly-wound, near-claustrophobic motorik electro-pop to more ethereal, dreamy, searching sounds. Ladytron sound like they’re stretching their wings on these songs; it’s a fitting soundtrack for our contemporary moment, in which things can sometimes feel so dark, but yet there’s always a glimmer of hope and transcendence.

Could We Be More (CD)


Could We Be More forecasts big things for London’s Kokoroko. Out via Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings, the band’s debut album delivers joyful, substantive tracks created from Afrobeat, soul, funk, jazz, and highlife influences. The eight-piece grew up in the British West African and Caribbean communities and there’s an intense joie de vivre, a celebration of the highs and lows of life, powering each of these fifteen top-notch tracks. Could We Be More feels like the best summer day of your life, no matter what season you’re listening to it. Discover why Kokoroko is heating up the UK music press—this is a band that deserves a massive global audience.

Norm (CD)

Andy Shauf

Andy Shauf’s Norm is a multi-layered album that’s a masterclass in storytelling. This is woozy, lovesick pop that feels like you’re tuning into an AM gold station in an alternate universe. The tracks possess a strange yet dreamy quality that feels both familiar and understandable--and that’s the brilliance of the album. Because beneath the well-trod ground of forlorn love songs lies something deeper and darker. In the tradition of Andy Shauf albums, Norm is a concept…where the concept feels like one of those self-proclaimed nice guys who aren’t, after all, so nice. It’s a testament to Shaun’s skills as a songwriter that these tracks feel so downright easy-breezy, so beautiful in their own pastel-hued way that their unsettling quality lurks on the sidelines until you’ve already welcomed them into your heart.

Past Lives (CD)

L.S. Dunes

Emo fandom let out a collective gasp when the supergroup L.S.. Dunes was unveiled upon the world. Consisting of members of Circa Survive, My Chemical Romance, Coheed and Cambria and Thursday, L.S. Dunes’ debut album, Past Lives , is a work of post-hardcore precision.

My Soft Machine (CD)

Arlo Parks

Arlo Parks' My Soft Machine is wistful, dreamy, and lovely. The songs pull off the rare feat of being both effortlessly cool and emotionally gripping. The British singer-songwriter has shared that the album is deeply personal, an attempt at "reaching inwards and sharing what I find at the limits of myself." That depth of emotion and creativity definitely comes through to the listener; the songs are total earworms, catchy and enjoyable, but they're also moving and all too relatable. If you're a fan of smart indie pop that you can dance to OR cry softly to, My Soft Machine is for you.

Folkocracy (CD)

Rufus Wainwright

Folkocracy is Rufus Wainwright at the height of his powers. Wainwright's deeply romantic, timeless voice lends itself readily to the Americana, folk, and country compositions on the album. Folkocracy features an all-star cast of collaborators from different musical worlds: watch out for appearances from Anohni, Andrew Bird, David Byrne, Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Madison Cunningham, Susanna Hoffs, Chaka Khan, John Legend, Anna McGarrigle, Van Dyke Parks, Nicole Scherzinger, Chris Stills, and Chaim Tannenbaum. Sweeping in scope yet beautifully familiar and tender in tone, Folkocracy is a thing of real beauty.

Formal Growth In The Desert [Blue Vinyl] (LP)


Protomartyr's Formal Growth in the Desert is bristling, evocative post-punk. Recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX with producer Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Barrie), the rhythms are hypnotic and sparse, with occasional flourishes of country western guitar. The band uses the actual desert as a metaphor for emotional deserts, the barren landscapes that on first glance seem blank and still, but contain multitudes of resilient, hardy life even in the harshest conditions. This ethos can be felt within the music itself: beneath the ostensibly severe tone of the songs, there's a simmering tension and heartbreaking beauty. Protomartyr is one of the most interesting bands in today's post-punk scene and Formal Growth is one of their best yet.

Tomorrow Never Comes (CD)


After a six year break, Rancid is back and sounding better than ever on Tomorrow Never Comes . The title track feels like classic punk, with gritty vocals, careening riffs, and propulsive drumming. "Devil in Disguise" is almost anthemic and ready-made for drunken sing-a-longs. "Don't Make Me Do It" is relentless and rowdy, a perfect punk song in less than one minute. Clocking in at under half an hour run time and jam-packed with killer tracks, Tomorrow Never Comes will remind you why you fell in love with punk rock in the first place.

I've Loved You For So Long (CD)

The Aces

On I've Loved You for So Long , The Aces deliver another album of perfect indie-pop. The choruses are infectious and ebullient, the melodies combining elements of alt-rock, sugar sweet '90s pop, and ethereal dreampop. Then the guitars kick in. The songs feel like readymade anthems, made to be sung (or shouted) along to. I've Loved You for So Long feels like being young again, in love with life, and excited for the possibilities.
