#224: Mapache, “From Liberty Street”

Mapache define themselves as “cosmic West Coast Pop Americana”, which is enough of a descriptor to deter me from writing anything else to try to explain what they sound like except for “They definitely know their Everly Brothers”. The Californian duo has just released their second album and we’re delighted to share it with you on our second (third?) week of quarantine. We didn’t even know it was Wednesday. New tracks by Bright EyesWaxahatcheeCar Seat HeadrestModern NatureArbouretumHexvesselWax Machine, Empty Country, SquidDoglegTropical Fuck StormLEYA, Kenny Berg ft. Chico da TinaJ BalvinLil YachtyBaxter DuryMargaret GlaspyKelsea BalleriniJennah Barry, Blake Mills, Natalia Lafourcade Oficial & Los Cojolites, Dave Simonett, Carl Anderson, and Lucinda Williams.

#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. Plus: brand new tracks by Jessie WareMargaret GlaspyBrooke BenthamTristenHazel EnglishBrigid Mae PowerThe Secret SistersPhoebe BridgersJess WilliamsonLand of TalkKatie PruittHailey WhittersTami NeilsonSam DooresDamien JuradoKikagaku MoyoArchers of LoafMoaningWoodsWestern CenturiesLoose KooziesMatt LaJoieJeremy CunninghamChristian Kjellvander official & TonbruketMoses SumneyKevin KrauterJarvis Cocker, and Perfume Genius.

#216: Andy Shauf, “The Neon Skyline”

Four years after his last solo album, Andy Shauf is back with “The Neon Skyline”. Just like its predecessor “The Party”, it’s (you guessed) another concept album about something that happened over the course of one night. So, of course, feel free to our selection and go listen to the record with the lyrics in front of you. In case you’re not into it, well, we got you covered with one hour and a half of new tracks by U.S. Girls, 070 Shake, Rosalía, Margaret Glaspy, Mitski, Okay Kaya, Waxahatchee, Squirrel Flower, Wye Oak, M. Ward, Bonny Light Horseman, Terry Allen, Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, Nathaniel Rateliff, Natural Child, Drive-By Truckers, Watkins Family Hour, Tiña, Wolf Parade, Kiwi jr, and Haha Charade.
