KiCk I (CD)

Arca

As a Latinx nonbinary trans woman who’s work draws on club music, experimental noise, performance art, and the ballad tradition of her native Venezuela, Arca has redefined the role of the diva for a new generation. KiCk i  is the first in a series of works, each with its own sonic theme. For this first installment, Arca pursues pleasure, dignity, and dance floor liberation by refracting club music, reggaeton, and pop through her radical vision.

Flower Of Devotion [Colored Vinyl] (LP)

Dehd

Chicago-based indie rock trio Dehd’s Flower of Devotion  ups the ante from the raucous garage sound and lyrical sparring of their 2019 debut, Water , with more polished and sometimes sunnier tunes. The attitude remains, but the results feel more well-rounded, seeing the band come into their own on their sophomore album. Singer/songwriter Emily Kempf sang about the necessity of love, compassion, and companionship on Water ; here she extols the virtues of being a loner while showing off her incredibly expressive range. Balla's guitar lines flirt from cosmic country to the dark sounds of Broadcast. It’s clear that Dehd is making meaningful markers on their way into the journey of the soul.

Sun Piano (LP)

Laraaji

This first instalment in a planned trilogy of piano-focused albums from the mystical musician Laraaji contains 12 improvisations recorded in a Brooklyn church. Sun Piano  finds Laraaji fulfilling a lifelong ambition to return to his first instrument. It’s a departure from his FX-soaked cosmic zither jams, but these elegant miniatures nevertheless reveal enough personality and inner light to be identifiable as 100% Laraaji. It’s not New Age; it’s “Laraaji Music.”

XOXO (CD)

The Jayhawks

In classic Jayhawks fashion, the songs on XOXO  mix the influence of American roots music with British invasion and jangly power-pop. There's also a newfound vitality at play, an invigoration of confidence and energy. The result is an album that, just like the band's lush harmonies, brings multiple distinctive voices together into a singular whole. This is a collection that finds unity in individuality and identity in reinvention.

What We Drew [Transparent Yellow Vinyl] (LP)

Yaeji

Inspired by both Korean indie rock and electronica that she listened to as a teenager in Seoul, as well as late '90s and early 2000s hip-hop and R&B, Brooklyn-based Korean American producer Yaeji’s self-produced debut is full of lush beat-filled electro that speaks of the loneliness and mental turmoil behind the good-times usually associated with this genre. Guests featured include Brooklyn-via-Oakland rapper Nappy Nina, London performance artist Victoria Sin, London producer Shy One, Tokyo DJ and producer YonYon, and others.

Pure X [Indie Exclusive Colored Vinyl] (LP)

Pure X

Pure X is back after six years with their fourth album, a shimmering and swirling self-titled work of vintage sounds recorded live in single takes. It’s their most focused work to date, with vocals clear and smooth as a summer day, and a rhythm section like a night train chugging through the desert. Pure X  weaves together their old sound, all the delays and distortion, and mixes it with a new optimism of straight-ahead melody.

Ultimate Success Today [Translucent Blue Vinyl] (LP)

Protomartyr

Protomartyr's fifth album, Ultimate Success Today , continues to expand on the Detroit band’s own special brand of Midwestern post-punk emo angst. Ambient drones, industrial riffs, and electric buzzing sift into alt-pop of shimmering beauty. Just like their city of origin, Protomartyr's sound resilient, raw, and surprising.

Species (CD)

Bing & Ruth

New York composer David Moore’s project Bing & Ruth presents an exploration of the sonic possibilities of the Farfisa organ, aided only by a clarinet and double bass. Beyond that, Species  is a study of suspended time and trance; not just a steady movement from A to B, but as something that flows, meanders, and eddies like water. This is minimalism with a filmic sensitivity, one that prioritized grace and texture over the style’s once-radical subtraction.

Jump Rope Gazers [Tangerine Colored Vinyl] (LP)

The Beths

New Zealand’s The Beths are back with a second album, tackling themes of anxiety and self-doubt with effervescent power pop choruses and rousing backup vocals. Jump Rope Gazers  presents an upbeat, hook-filled indie sound stacked with girl-group style vocals, yet it also stares down all the hard parts of living in communion with other people. Jean-Paul Sartre may have said "Hell is other people," but to The Beths, the cathartic experience that can come from sharing stressful situations with your friends is a kind of heaven.

Beyond The Pale (CD)

JARV IS...

This is the first original music from Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker since 2009. The "JARV IS" band was originally formed to play at the Sigur Ros "Norður og Niður" festival in Iceland in 2017. As they continued to play shows, they recorded their live sets so that they could monitor how the songs were developing, and eventually used these recordings as the basis for Beyond the Pale . Overdubs and vocals were later added at Narcissus Studios in Neasden, London. Cocker’s lyrics are as witty as ever, perhaps turbo-charged to meet current hard times, and the arrangements and hooks are just as strong as in the Pulp days, if not more inventive for hybridizing live with digital production.

Amends (CD)

Grey Daze

Before Chester Bennington became the frontman for Linkin Park, he sang for the grunge-tinged hard rock outfit Grey Daze from 1993-1998. In 2017, Bennington announced a Grey Daze reunion, but he unfortunately died that same year before the reunion could become a reality. A couple of years later in 2019, Bennington’s Grey Daze bandmates decided to complete the project with Amends ; they selected the tracks from the band’s mid-'90s catalog and re-recorded the music to accompany Bennington’s re-mastered vocals. Produced by Jay Baumgardner, the album features several contributions from eminent figures in the scene, including Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer, Page Hamilton (Helmet), Chris Traynor (Bush, Helmet, Orange 9MM), and more.

Agricultural Tragic (CD)

Corb Lund

Unique Canadian country artist Corb Lund's 11th studio album, Agricultural Tragic , finally puts a name to the genre he's been embodying all of these years. Lund embraces his rustic western heritage with a style that's honest and resolute, while touching on a range of cowboy themes from lawless frontier saloons to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch. Lund's writing resonates with rural and urban audiences alike. It's a classic sound with a twist -- one that evokes the spirit of the American West, past and present.
