We’re pretty sure you won’t run out of interesting things to keep you occupied during your forced quarantine period, but we’ll still add something to that. The Deslondes’ Sam Doores has just released his first solo LP in quite a while, and you can use it to remember how nice life could be when it was still normal.

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 Ware, Margaret Glaspy, Brooke Bentham, Tristen, Hazel English, Brigid Mae Power, The Secret Sisters, Phoebe Bridgers, Jess Williamson, Land of Talk, Katie Pruitt, Hailey Whitters, Tami Neilson, Sam Doores, Damien Jurado, Kikagaku Moyo, Archers of Loaf, Moaning, Woods, Western Centuries, Loose Koozies, Matt LaJoie, Jeremy Cunningham, Christian Kjellvander official & Tonbruket, Moses Sumney, Kevin Krauter, Jarvis Cocker, and Perfume Genius.
Dan Bejar enters the another decade with what is probably his most remarkable piece of work since Kaputt. We’ve been featuring Destroyer’s new singles for a while now; this week, it’s time to celebrate “Have We Met”’s release. Plus, we have new tracks from Youbet, Diet Cig, Frances Quinlan, Torres, Lala Lala, JFDR, Lowland Hum, James Elkington, Sir Richard Bishop, Clem Snide, Sam Doores, Tre Burt, Alex Rex, Futurebirds, Pokey LaFarge, The Sadies, Bohren & der Club of Gore, Brooch, Dan Deacon, Shopping, The Men, Hailu Mergia, and Chuck Prophet.
