Corridor :: Junior

Francophonic guitar attaque, brimming with chiming arpeggios, complicated stringular interplay, and words beyond comprehension but not understanding.

Greezy Wheels :: Ain’t Quite Like That

A mix of country, western swing, rockabilly, and various other semi-compatible genres, paired with seductive vocals and plenty of musical swagger.

Big Thief :: Two Hands

A distinctive female voice fronting a standard indie combo is not the most exciting formula, but Big Thief has a penchant for weird flourishes and unexpected changes that keeps things interesting

Levitation Room :: Headspace

Verring wildly from soft-funk to outright garage fuzz, this wouldn’t be out of place coming out the AM radio and windows of a 1974 Maverick.

HalfNoise :: Natural Disguise

Forward-looking dance funk, the kind of music that immediately makes you grab the closest person by the wrist and drag them to the dance floor.

Negativland :: True False

Layers of samples, voices, music, found audio, sound effects, and other bizarre elements make up these haunting compositions from the masters of audio collage.

Peach Pyramid :: Bright Blue

Delightfully twee songs, filled with shimmering melodies, sparkling production, and heavenly choruses.

Bombadil :: Beautiful Country

Very agreeable folk pop, with clever harmonies and sharp hooks making it the sort of music to bring on a road trip.
