John Vanderslice :: The Cedars

A meticulously crafted release, with extreme attention to detail and a great sense of cohesion despite a wide variety of sounds… destined to be a classic.

Orville Peck :: Pony

Old fashioned haunted country music… Orville Peck howls, croons, and yodels in a way that is extremely dramatic, yet never quite goes over the top.

Delicate Steve :: Till I Burn Up

Quite the military parade, a non-stop set of marching songs for liquid guitar and drum machine.

Frankie and the Witchfingers :: Zam

Original psychedelic riff rock is an oxymoron … what matters is the ability to get you off your seat, which this band has aplenty

Telekinesis :: Effluxion

An unusually sharp pop sensibility keeps this outfit from blending into the background, with rough-and-tumble rocking.

Pom Poko :: Birthday

Norwegian death pop worthy of Dave Brubeck with its catchy off-meter hooks takes you through a rainbow-colored tunnel of sharp candy shards.

Martin Frawley :: Undone At 31

Martin is baring his soul, exposing his darkest secrets in a whispered croon, here inside this closet.

Shook Twins :: Some Good Lives

Solid songs that mix a generous dollop of traditional country elements with a big scoop of indie pop.
