Jade Bird: Different Kinds of Light

Hexham, Northumberland phenom Jade Bird has just released her sophomore effort and I am really digging it of late. Different Kinds of Light is a classic jangly guitar pop oriented album rooted in Brit Rock goodness. She is showing some amazing growth as an artist. Check it out!!

The Killers: Pressure Machine (Album of the Week)

Las Vegas's own The Killers have released a very interesting new record that deeply channels their inner Bruce Springsteen. They've taken departures from their signature sound before but this is crazy different yet in a good way. I found myself deeply fascinated by the stories they were telling on every single track. 

Americana, dark version. Wow.

Deafheaven: Infinite Granite

The pure pop sounds of Deafheaven have been in constant rotation in my house for the past couple weeks. Their latest record, Infinite Granite, is shoegaze dreamy at its finest. Every track is cloud, blue sky gold. 

Dream pop fans will love this one!

Villagers: Fever Dreams (Album of the Week)

Dublin's own Villagers are back with a fantastic new record called Fever Dreams. The quiet, introspective style they are known for is present along with some lo-fi vibes which are quite refreshing.

I've always admired how this band uses echo in their songs. It seems a basic sort of effect but the way these guys do it adds in beaucoup nostalgia.

Wily Mason: Already Dead

NYC's Wily Mason is back with his fifth long-player and his upbeat pessimism is thanfkully still strong. Already Dead has some great high-energy tempos with themes that are quite dark. Love this combo!

Here is the opening track...

Billie Eilish: Happier Than Ever

My daughter got me in to Billie Eilish and I'm very grateful she did. The LA native is a genius and her new record, Happier Than Ever, is a stellar sophomore effort. An incredibly wide range of styles are present on this album.

Here is my favorite track...so romantic...

Torres: Thirstier

The groovy 60's fuzz pop sound of Torres's latest record (Thirstier) has been a recent obsession of mine. The Orlando, Florida native has been making great music for nearly a decade and her latest is my favorite. Dripping with modern nostalgia!
