#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.

#221: Soccer Mommy, “Color Theory”

This is going to be a long one! We were tired of snubbing over half an hour of music almost every week due to the sheer amount of great singles and albums coming out this season. This means you have two hours of new music to listen to until next Wednesday. Our highlight of the week is Soccer Mommy’s “Color Theory”, her sophomore (properly released) record which pretty much sums up what an indie rock album will like in the 2020s.

#78: Conor Oberst, “Ruminations” / John Prine / Hiss Golden Messenger

This Fall season is the gift that keeps on giving. At least when it comes to singer-songwriters and their new records. Conor Oberst, John Prine, and Hiss Golden Messenger have released new albums in the last couple of weeks and those are the standouts on our 28th playlist of the year.
