Steve Gunn’s sixth album, ‘Other You’ is a perfect end of summer album. It’s also our album of the week. Our 33th playlist of the year also features songs from new albums by Alex Rex, Aidan O’Rourke, Pile, Wednesday, Tré Burt, Summer Dean, and Matt Paxton.
Though it helps, you don’t have to be a 25 year-old millennial to deeply empathise with Phoebe Bridgers’ sophomore album, “Punisher”. The star-studded ensemble of guests (Conor Oberst, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus) and its universal and hauntingly beautiful themes of lost love, impostor syndrome and the end of the world will leave their mark on you. We dare you to try to listen to it only once. +: new tracks by Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, Hayley Thompson-King, Mike Polizze (Purling Hiss), Tiña, The Fiery Furnaces, Elephant Stone, Sun on Shade (Heath Fogg from Alabama Shakes), Los Retros, Gum Country, Sports Team, Fontaines D.C., Noveller, Jeremy Fetzer, Wilder Maker & Gabriel Birnbaum, Thomas Csorba, Colter Wall, John Craigie, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Fauss, Arlo McKinley, Steve Gunn & Cass McCombs, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
