Death Of A Cheerleader (CD)

Pom Pom Squad

Pom Pom Squad makes its debut with Death of a Cheerleader , a satisfyingly poppy/punky indie rock record with shades of Giant Drag and Cherry Glazerr. Frontwoman Mia Berrin delivers spot-on feminist critiques with a jaded-sweet tone over driving guitar and swelling choruses, like on “Crying.” “Lux” is a burst of grunge-y energy and “Head Cheerleader” – which features Tegan Quin from Tegan and Sara on guest vocals - is undeniably catchy. This is a solid debut all around.

Black Acid Soul (LP)

Lady Blackbird

Sure, it’s only January, but Lady Blackbird’s debut, Black Acid Soul , seems like a strong contender for album of the year. The LA-based singer’s voice conveys emotion with every note; there’s no paint-by-numbers, pop-radio-ready polish here. No, Lady Blackbird’s influences harken back to stronger stuff. Her voice might call to mind classic jazz singers like Nina Simone or Billie Holiday, while her backing musicians include Deon Johnson (Miles Davis’ pianist). Black Acid Soul is atmospheric, intoxicating, and timeless. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore—until, apparently, they do.

SOURCE - WE MOVE (CD)

Nubya Garcia

Source - We Move is a remix of saxophonist Nubya Garcia's 2020 album Source , featuring House, Hip-hop, broken beat, R&B and world fusion artists. The result is an eclectic reimagining of an already fascinating album, with artists like DJ Harrison, Kiadi Tatham, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dengue Dengue Dengue lending their talents. The soulful "La cumbia me esta llamando" gets a funky lift from Tatham, and "Boundless Beings" goes from gently spacey to swinging and groovy in the hands of Muldrow. Dengue Dengue Dengue pick up the pace of the dub-tinged "Source" with some well-placed keys and synth effects.

Straight From The Heart (CD)

Kenny Neal

If you want swampy, celebratory, down south blues, Kenny Neal’s Straight From the Heart is the answer. The Grammy-nominated Louisiana bluesman Kenny Neal stirs up his own distinctive stew of blues, jazz, and zydeco that feels hot as a late summer evening in Baton Rouge. There are no watered-down, chain BBQ restaurant blues here—Neal’s songs are gritty, authentic, and jubilant. Kenny Neal is the real deal and Straight From the Heart really does seem like an expression of love for the genre, the land, and the people who keep evolving the blues.

Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 (CD)

Johnny Marr

Johnny Marr is a legend for a reason, and Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 is another winner. The double album was crafted during the UK’s first lockdown; it’s easy to feel Marr’s sense of urgency, to relate to the album’s interior explorations. An evolution in sound for one of modern music’s greatest guitarists, Fever Dreams& is multi-dimensional, tightly-crafted, and propelled by his own singular power as a performer. Crank this one up and get carried away by the force of Marr’s vision.

A Way Forward (CD)

Nation Of Language

Nation of Language is here to scratch your synth-pop itch. On their second album, the Brooklyn band finds inspiration in various echelons of the retro synth style universe; at times the band sounds swooningly New Romantic, at others the vibe is akin to the minimal goth of early Depeche Mode. These variations in style mean the album’s mood never feels static. As the sound constantly evolves, the trio adds emotional dimensions that pack a real punch. Intriguing, cohesive, and darkly beautiful.

HEY WHAT (CD)

Low

Venerable experimentalists Low return with HEY WHAT , their most boldly energized new work in years. The familiar, haunting harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker bring a searing, sometimes almost sacred quality to the proceedings, while the melodies shift from quiet yearning to digital abrasion. Richly textured and bristling with emotion, the songs morph in and out of form, birthed from chaos and dissolving into gentleness. A fearless, vastly rewarding effort from one of the most consistently excellent bands in contemporary music.

Painless (CD)

Nilüfer Yanya

Nilufer Yanya’s Painless has to be one of the most intriguing, exciting albums in recent memory. The songs build slowly, crescendoing into an irresistible emotional force with layered vocals, sparse but hypnotic instrumentation, and propulsive drums. Painless feels like a hazy, gorgeous dream with emotion grounded in too-real-reality and a rhythmic sense of urgency. An ocean of feeling translated into washes of gauzy, gripping sound.

Blues Without You (CD)

Larry McCray

Blues guitarist Larry McCray drops his first new album in seven years, Blues Without You , which was produced by Joe Bonamassa and fellow artist Josh Smith. With guest appearances from Warren Haynes, Joanna Connor, and Reese Wynans, the album offers upbeat, fiery numbers with down-to-earth lyrics on subjects like McCray’s rural childhood (“Arkansas”) and the distressing state of the world (“Breaking News” - “the future keeps on getting darker and I can’t go to sleep at night, have mercy”). “Run” features crunchy riffs and also showcases McCray’s strong vocals.

A Tear In The Fabric Of Life EP (CD)

Knocked Loose

Knocked Loose keep ‘em wanting more on the tantalizing A Tear in the Fabric of Life EP . Brutal, heavy, and brooding, the EP’s over before you know it, but what an enjoyable, unpredictable ride it has been. Knocked Loose doesn’t shy away from infusing real emotion into a genre that sometimes can seem like a caricature of darkness; the band tells real stories of emotional upheaval and loss, and their oeuvre is all the more powerful because of it. Cathartic, cataclysmic, and brilliant, A Tear in the Fabric of Life is one of the most exciting releases of the year.

In Plain Sight (CD)

Neal Francis

Neal Francis’ In Plain Sight is a throwback ’70s-style album with a serious amount of scruffy charm. The singer/songwriter just emotes golden-era-of-rock-n-roll-cool on this collection, and he’s joined by an excellent cast of collaborators, including Derek Trucks on slide guitar, and his bandmates Kellen Boersma on guitar, Collin O’Brien on drums, and Mike Starr on bass. The album was recorded on tape at a former church in Chicago where Francis found himself living after a breakup with his then girlfriend. That curious mood pervades the entire album; beneath the struggles and the turmoil, there’s a transcendence and a sense of possibility. A special album that should win over many new fans for the talented Francis.

The Future (CD)

Nathaniel Rateliff

When you think of days to come, do you feel hope, or do you feel despair? Some sort of mixed-up, middle emotion? Those are the questions Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats grapple with on their brilliant new album, The Future . Recorded at Rateliff’s Colorado studio in the middle of the pandemic, there’s an underlying struggle present within the songs that’s buoyed by the album’s retro-classic sound. The days may sometimes be dark, but why not dance while we still can? Put on The Future , get your toes tapping, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a smile on your face before too long.
