NCT - The 2nd Album Resonance Pt. 1 [The Future Ver.] (CD)

The second album from 21-member K-pop project NCT ups the ante with the group's full line-up on board. That means dance-pop hits to spare from all four NCT sub-groups plus two new members, Shotaro and Sungchan. With its enthusiastic swings from melodic hooks to rap verses, Resonance Pt. 1 is big on positive energy and connection through music, themes that should be well-received in 2020.

Roped In (LP)

Roped In is an atmospheric, intimate, and often spare album anchored by Patrick McDermott’s intricate guitar and the haunting pedal steel work of Barry Walker. Harpist Mary Lattimore and guitarist William Tyler also make delicate appearances throughout. Across the album’s nine tracks, McDermott and Walker use simplicity and the directness of communicating emotions through music as both a jumping off point and a parameter. It’s about the clarity that can come from quiet moments, and how those moments are worth sticking with for as long as we possibly can.
