#235: Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, “Sideways to New Italy”

Is there anything more typical of music publications in the 21st century than waiting for an indie rock band to fail miserably with the release their second record? Don’t let them tell you “Sideways to New Italy” is lacking something important. The new Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever album has all the melodies and hooks you need to survive this festival-less summer so you can pretend everything’s fine. We’re adding a fourth sentence to this paragraph because it seems like it’s mandatory to reference the Go-Betweens and/or the Feelies every single time we talk about this band.

#227: Laura Marling, “Song for Our Daughter”

Laura Marling’s spring tour got cancelled and suddenly there was a seemingly unfillable void inside of us. Fortunately, the British songwriter has decided to release her new album earlier than it was supposed to, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that. Besides two songs off “Song for Our Daughter”, we have 26 brand new tracks from Jackie LynnOHMMEneubauten.org, Scottibrains, HoopsPhoebe BridgersTristenWoodsAlex NicolAZITAJames ElkingtonBuck CurranThe Orbiting Human Circus & The Music TapesBia MariaAnna BurchJenny O.Camille DeleanBecca MancariKellen of TroyJohn AndersonSteve EarlePokey LaFargeCaleb CaudleTommy AlexanderJaime Wyatt, and Eilen Jewell.
