Sharon Van Etten-Remind Me Tomorrow

Sharon Van Etten got her start off her ridiculously delicate voice over her ridiculously delicate guitar on Because I Was in Love.  “Comeback Kid” isn’t necessarily a complete surprise considering songs like “Your Love is Killing Me” or “Serpents,” however, like much of her new album Remind Me Tomorrow, it comes across as a level-up on all fronts for the songwriting talent.

Out today!

Dawn-New Breed

Dawn Richard has been all over the map, from her Danity Kane/Bad Boy records days to her indie-cred solo material, including a Dirty Projectors feature and a slew of adventurous solo albums, Dawn has constantly avoided simple alt-r&B categorization.  New Breed is somewhat a meditation on Richard’s own unique position in the world drawing on boundless dance beats to vouch for her own weirdness and experimental textures to never leave the listener too comfortable.

Check it out on first listen.

Steve Gunn-The Unseen In Between

Gunn may be a little bit of a “you heard one, you heard em’ all” type of artists, but his slow burning stories of middle America always demand deep listening and The Unseen In Between sounds no different.

Buy it on bandcamp.

James Blake-Assume Form

James Blake’s tirade against being called a sad boy was ridiculous—his arty showpieces are much more primed and ready to be taken seriously as art than any woman or emo artist who’s ever suffered under the umbrella of “confessional” after all, but the man strikes accessible emotional tones with his spooky, unique sampling and nuanced vocal effects.

Give it a shot at 3am or something.
