Formed in the heart of Londons DIY punk scene, Big Joanie (featuring guitarist Stephanie Phillips, bassist Estella Adeyeri, and drummer Chardine Taylor-Stone) are a Black feminist punk band whose passionate live shows and moreish blend of nineties riot grrrl and synth-heavy post punk, have seen them steadily rise to become one of the most championed bands of the current era. Back Home is a dramatic leap forward for the band; the band build on their tightly knit, lo-fi punk formula to bring forth a collage of blazing guitars, down tempo dance punk, and melancholic strings that evoke the full depth of the bands expansive art punk vision. The albums strength lies in the bands bold and varied new sound. Album opener Cactus Tree is an eerie, gothic folk tale that tells the story of a woman waiting for her lover while a wall of euphoric harmonies and screaming feedback roll in the background. Lead single Happier Still is a driving, Nirvana-influenced track that grapples with the idea of wanting to push through a depressive episode. Inspired equally by the melodic rock of Hsker D and the mystical sensibilities of Stevie Nicks, closer Sainted brings the club-ready sentiment of the 2018 single Fall Asleep to its natural conclusion. Despite Big Joanies many accomplishments, there is so much more the band want to achieve and Back Home looks set to be the breeding ground for a new era of Big Joanie. With their boundary-breaking approach to punk, radical politics, and an appreciation for earworm melodies, Big Joanie are set to become important voices for a new generation of punks.

New solo album from Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers (his first in 5 years), featuring songs written by lauded folk singer Greg Brown, whose songs have also been performed and recorded by Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco, Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and more.

For those who may need reminding, Greg Brown is the ultimate songwriter's songwriter. Over a forty-plus-year career, he's occupied the same rarefied air as Loudon Wainwright III and John Prine - a keen-eyed poet and diarist of the human condition. And he's done it mostly on his own. This is a man who put forty records out because he had to, Avett says. He made his own record label. He played the coffee shops, the bars, the little theaters. He built it. He's a world-class artist who did it all under the radar, which is just mind-blowing to me.

As Avett's new solo record makes clear, this collection is an expression of admiration and gratitude for one of his heroes. But it's also a reflection of his own artistry and ability as an interpreter. Though Brown's songs have been a part of his listening diet for decades, Avett gained a more profound appreciation once he put his own voice behind them.

I see him as a master songwriter, he continues. I don't think all of this work is indicative of his narrative. There is an autobiography through his forty records, but he is speaking for us. Like all the great authors and poets speak for us. He is in those records fully, but there's a lot more in them than just him.

And with Seth Avett Sings Greg Brown, he hopes that universal chord will resonate with listeners who are unfamiliar with Brown. With this record, I just hope they get an introduction, Avett says. And for anyone who can enjoy it, I hope it's a bridge into a place that otherwise perhaps they wouldn't have walked into.

For Avett, that bridge is one that he's certain he'll be crossing for years to come. I was listening to his One Night live record recently, and I was making discoveries left and right. It's never-ending. I haven't discovered Greg Brown. I am in the process of discovering him. And this record is just a single point in something that is ongoing. It's not an event that happened. It is happening.

Vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2022 release. Over the last ten years, The Lone Bellow have cast an indelible spell with their finespun songs of hard truth and redemptive beauty, faithfully delivered in hypnotic three-part harmony. In a departure from their past work with elite producers like Aaron Dessner of The National and eight-time Grammy-winner Dave Cobb, the Nashville-based trio struck out on their own for their album Love Songs for Losers, dreaming up a singular sound encompassing everything from arena-ready rock anthems to the gorgeously sprawling Americana tunes the band refers to as little redneck symphonies. Recorded at the possibly haunted former home of the legendary Roy Orbison, the result is an intimate meditation on the pain and joy and ineffable wonder of being human, at turns profoundly heartbreaking and sublimely transcendent.

"Where Im Meant To Be is a thumping celebration of life, and an affirming elevation in Ezra Collectives winding hybrid sound and refined collective character. The songs marry cool confidence with bright energy. Full of call-and-response conversations between their ensemble parts, Where I'm Meant To Be is a natural product of years improvising together on-stage. The album -- which also features guest artists Sampa The Great, Kojey Radical, Emile Sande and Nao -- will light up sweaty dance floors and soundtrack summer dinners in equal measure.

The group -- consisting of Femi Koleoso (who also drums for Gorillaz) as drummer and bandleader, Joe Armon-Jones on keys, James Mollison on saxophone, Ife Ogunjobi on trumpet, and Koleosos younger brother TJ on bass guitar -- originally came together in 2012 as teenagers at the youth band of Tomorrows Warriors, a music education initiative at the South Bank Centre in London. They have since shot forward to become architects of a new phase in their citys musical journey, a hybrid time in which Black genres -- jazz, grime, afrobeat and more -- can dovetail and harmonize fluidly, at new, forever rising levels.

The fourteen tracks on Where Im Meant To Be took eighteen months to record. This gear-shift, far from the mere hours and days spent on all previous releases, not only reflects the impact of lockdown life on artistic creation -- it is buoyed by the patience gained from slowing down."

Iris DeMent released Infamous Angel in 1992. Nearly 30 years later, the album remains among the most singular and fully realized singer-songwriter debuts since the invention of that category in the early '70s. The abiding strengths of the album are especially impressive ' even a bit startling ' because 1992 is not a moment usually associated with her intimate brand of acoustic country music. In country history, the year 1992 is most immediately affiliated with Garth Brooks, whose album, The Chase, topped both the country and pop album charts that year, and with Billy Ray Cyrus' 'Achy Breaky Heart,' which fueled a line dance craze. Squeezed into a playlist alongside such hits, DeMent's doleful, hushed 'Our Town' would've sounded as if it were being broadcast from another planet. 'People call me country,' she told journalist Ben Thompson while on tour in Britain a couple years later. 'But country doesn't call me country.' Let's call her country. The genre is always more expansive than what radio stations program. It happened Infamous Angel is close kin to a different sort of country music that was just then having a moment: specifically, country singer-songwriters, focusing on personal, but universal, loss and hope and favoring small acoustic combos. It may have been out of step with the mainstream, but Infamous Angel arrived right on time. This 30th anniversary reissue is remastered for vinyl by mastering engineer Mike Westbrook.

The Menzingers created a rousing sound featuring crashing power chords, rock steady drumming and anthemic sing-along choruses alongside powerfully poetic everyman lyrics. On The Impossible Past was recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago with longtime collaborators Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms) and Justin Yates. While the record retains all the raucous spirit of the bands earlier efforts sonically, its a monumental step forward. I think that Gates is one of the most mature songs on the album, guitarist/vocalist Tom May explains, referencing the tender rock song sung by Barnett that truly transcends genres. I hope it surprises people because its not a straight-forward punk song with gang vocals or anything like that but it still definitely sounds like us.

The band will embark on a 28 date US headlining tour where they will play their breakout album On the Impossible Past from front to back. The 10 year anniversary includes reworked artwork in a gatefold jacket, an 8 page booklet, and their acoustic album tracks previously only released as On the Possible Past.

Sam Halls new album as ghost orchard, rainbow music, is a collage of patience and meditation. Its filled with nuances as quietly imperceptible as the seasons, or the profound movement of time, where one day looking back you realize your whole spirit has shifted. Where 2019s critically revered bunny was a love letter to a romantic relationship, rainbow music documents the culmination of Halls first personal experience with loss in several forms. At the end of 2020, his longterm childhood pet passed away, and with it the last continuing threads of familiarity between being a kid and adulthood. Still based in the Grand Rapids, Michigan town hed grown up in, the static ease of familiar living seemed to be coming apart at the seams, as friends moved on to bigger cities, relationships shape shifted and in a short period of time, another kitten hed adopted passed away prematurely, leaving Hall to question the trajectory in which he himself was headed.

Like songs in the key of life, the title rainbow musicrefers to the myriad of colors and qualities within Hall that are refracted throughout. Its a symbolization of hope and the aftermath, the flickering light at the end of the tunnel (orwhen a rainbow shows up after a big storm). Wish I could have fun anymore, Hall ruminates on dancing, as well as confessing he wish he made more upbeat bangers. But reality packs more of a punch, and this collection of songs sees him finally be at peace with the current state of affairs.Relatable to anyone who has contemplated what it means to settle down, or even just catch your breath in an era where anguish is commonplace, the release of rainbow musicis a happy ending in its own right, a marker of survival that remains close to the bone.

Dean Fertita has been at the heart of American rock n roll for almost two decades, from his role as an invaluable member of Queens of the Stone Age and The Dead Weather, touring keyboardist with The Raconteurs, and backing musician on records by Jack White, Karen O, Iggy Pop, Brendan Benson, The Kills, Beck, and more. While his own music had been the focus in his role as lead singer, guitarist, and founder of The Waxwings and on recordings as Hello=Fire, Fertita began TROPICAL GOTHCLUB with no clear mission for a solo album under his own name. In early 2020, the TN-based musician put up a small A-frame in his backyard to use as a writing and recording space while stuck at home during the looming pandemic. With rare time on his hands, Fertita set to work recording demos of the many musical ideas he had accumulated over the years, building upon songs and fragments written during different stages of his busy career. Fertita then enlisted his old friend Dave Feeny a veteran Detroit musician and owner of The Tempermill recording studios in Ferndale, MI to help develop the recordings even further, pushing the original demos in deliberate new directions to create a showcase for his wide-ranging songcraft and visionary imagination.

Drummer, composer, and producer Tom Skinner who is the drummer for The Smile and Sons of Kemet releases his new album, Voices of Bishara, on November 4, 2022, via Brownswood / International Anthem / Nonesuch. The first recording under Skinners own name is a reference to an album he listened to repeatedly during the COVID-19 lockdown: cellist Abdul Waduds 1978 solo album By Myself, which was privately pressed on Waduds label, Bishara. The common Arabic name has the intention or meaning of good news or the bringer of good news. Voices of Bishara began life when Tom Skinner asked some musician friends to join him for a Played Twice session at Londons Brilliant Corners. These regular sessions had a simple format: play a classic album in full through the venues audiophile system and then have a live ensemble improvise a response. The night in question focused on drummer Tony Williams 1964 Blue Note album, Life Time, and the music conjured that night inspired Skinner to write an albums worth of new music. Skinner recorded an album of that music with a cellist, bass, and two saxophonists subsequently putting it aside, occasionally bringing it out for some attention in between his many other creative projects. Gradually, the record began to take shape as he embraced the studio recordings and accentuated their idiosyncrasies.

Dreamcastmoe is the recording project of singer, songwriter, producer, and DJ Davon Bryant, a lifelong resident of Washington, DC. His music moves freely between moods and modes, hypnotic, romantic, traversing electronic, R&B, funk, soul, and hip-hop - Resident Advisor dubs it "soulful, cross-genre dance music." This ability to adapt and finesse, to twist in different directions while staying true and coherent in vision, can be traced to his home city and it's complex cultural history. "Most Black kids in DC don't ever get to this point," he says. "This is what I am making this music for, in the DC tradition of soul and empathy and love that is rooted in this city. My music is for real people dealing with shit every day." A versatile, modern artist and collaborator, dreamcastmoe has thrived in the underground since his first uploads to Soundcloud and Bandcamp in 2017 and subsequent releases with labels like People's Potential Unlimited, Trading Places, and In Real Life Music. Bryant's laid-back personality, emotional honesty, and infectious energy shine through his work and how he talks about it, as Crack Magazine notes in their 2021 Rising feature: "a steady combination of confidence, creativity, and calmness." He grew up playing drums in church; he's worked dead-end jobs, had ups and downs, even sold off all his gear one time, but never stopped reinvesting in himself. He is quick to praise his co-producers, rattle off influences - the visual feel of NBA 2K, the comedic timing of Bernie Mac, the savvy legacy of Duke Ellington, for starters - and credit resourceful DC breakouts like Ankhlejohn that showed him the roadmap. His voice, a steady instrument, seemingly connects it all, capable of slow falsetto flow, swaggering talk-rap, and outright croon. His storytelling style is choppy yet fluid, like a mixtape, which is how Bryant sees Sound Is Like Water, his debut on Ghostly's International's freeform label, Spectral Sound. The two-part project culminates as a full-length LP release in November 2022.The first side, released as Part I, opens on the blurred beats of "El Dorado," which dreamcastmoe dedicates to his journey. It's a head-nodder, an off-kilter earworm co-produced by Max D (Future Times, RVNG Intl, etc.), with Bryant harmonizing hooks with synth jabs and a pitched-down presence. "This song is a chant that keeps me moving towards the places I want to be. My journey mostly digs into my love (sometimes a lack of) for self and allowing myself that space to grow.""Complicated" is the slow jam, delivered smoothly from a Saturday night crossroads. Dreamcastmoe is contemplative and committed - gliding and locking ad-libs into skittering rhythms courtesy of co-producer Zackary Dawson - but also willing to let something go, "acknowledging that everything in life IS NOT easy.""RU Ready" takes off from the jump as a tribute, challenge, and promise to his partner and his city ("The times you sat with me when I needed you the most / Told me the things that I needed to see / Young black man, really trying to be what I can be / And I'm really from DC). In it's potent two-plus minutes, the sonics (co-produced by ZDBT) press the message, all cymbal crashes, breakbeats, and serrated synth lines. "Cloudy Weather, Wear Boots" is a blitzing dance-punk track made in collaboration with Jordan GCZ on Bryant's first trip to Amsterdam. Lyrics land in a dream state; the club is heaven's gate, and Bryant is shaking the clouds from his back. "Sometimes we just need to hit the dancefloor and let go of everything."The album's flipside opens on "Much More," the first of two synth-and-beat ballads co-produced by ZDBT. Bryant sees the track as a pledge - "to myself that 'I'm much more' and whoever I'm with deserves more. We both deserve the best version of myself. The best version of each other." Later on "Long Songz," he claims, "I'm not writing love songs no more," prioritizing the vibe with "all my day ones." He calls it "a cry for more normal moments. Everything doesn't have to be a fantasy love story, more time spent getting to the money, growing, and making a way."He saves two of his most propulsive cuts for the finale, co-produced by Sami, co-founder of DC dance label 1432 R. As their titles suggest, "Take A Moment" and "Make Ya Mind" operate as anthems for movement, with Bryant free-flowing commands above wildly-styled percussion. Per Bryant, the latter is both "wake & bake jam" and a "dance floor bomb." His parting line: "Action / You got to show me action / Reaction."The world of dreamcastmoe straddles virtual reality and the realness of DC, images both imagined and lived-in. Bryant has a knack for unexpected melodies but what makes his music so exciting is his capacity to defy the expectations of genre and image. A fluid ingenuity and vulnerability bottled by Sound Is Like Water, and this is just the beginning.

"'Southern Symphony' is hands down the best work I've created," said Dickerson, "Its the best songs Ive written. Its sonically the best weve created. This album is ten honest and true tracks that tell the story of how Ive grown as an artist and a man. I could not be more proud of every song on this album. Enjoy!

Dancer came about quietly one night before I went to bed. Growing up one of my favorite movies was Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I really love the scene where Ferris is singing Twist and Shout by the Beatles on a parade float. Theres a four part harmony in that song that builds with so much excitement and energy and the movie does such a good job of representing that excitement with a literal parade. Thats where I think the songs opening moment came from sub consciously. At first I really only wrote the first verse and chorus. I reflected on the lyrics and started to imagine this character, the Dancer. I imagined a person who had left home to try and carve out a place for themselves in this world. They found themselves in a place where they were appreciated for what they do, not who they are. Something that I have felt in many ways in my life. Its not a stretch to imagine do these people actually like me or do they just think its cool that I play music? At times it has felt like a burden, the need to express myself through music. Dont get me wrong, I really do love it but I love it so much that I dont really feel like myself without it. Its become a huge part of my identity and sometimes I wish I could just be Scott but thats not really possible. Im always clicking my teeth in some rhythmic pattern or fidgeting with my left hand making chord shapes. I find myself constantly moving my body to an internal clock that feels inherently musical. I imagined the Dancer character didnt come from a lot of love. Over the past few years Ive taken a few trips out to the California desert, Death Valley and Joshua Tree to be specific and Ive really fallen in love with that part of the country. I thought maybe Dancer grew up in the desert, a barren place where you really have to look for life. She had left hoping to escape and find herself in a place beaming with life. Maybe her parents had passed on and left her the house she had grown up in back in the desert. She had never found true love or acceptance in her journey because she wasnt really running towards something, she was running away. She decides to move back home to the house she inherited and its not clear if shell face her demons or succumb to them.

The Milk Teeth EP compiles singer-songwriter Suki Waterhouse's various non-album singles onto a physical release for the first time. It includes the song "Good Looking," which, in mid-2022, exploded on Tik Tok and hit #1 on the global viral chart. Suki Waterhouse catalogs the most intimate, formative, and significant moments of her life through songs. You might recognize her name or her work as an actress and model, but you'll really get to know the multi-faceted artist through her music. Growing up in London, Suki gravitated towards music's magnetic pull. She listened to the likes of Alanis Morissette and caught Missy Elliott live as her first concert. Meanwhile, Oasis held a particularly special place in her heart. She initially teased out this facet of her creativity with a series of singles, generating nearly 20 million total streams independently. Nylon hailed her debut "Brutally" as "what a Lana Del Rey deep cut mixed with Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides, Now' would sound like." In addition to raves from Garage by Vice and Lemonade Magazine, DUJOR put it best, "Suki Waterhouse's music has swagger." Constantly consuming artists of all stripes, she listened to the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Valerie June, Garbage, Frazey Ford, Lou Doillon, and Lucinda Williams. In late 2020, she finally dove into making what would become her full-length debut album, I Can't Let Go [Sub Pop Records] with producer Brad Cook [Snail Mail, Waxahatchee]. Now, she introduces this chapter with "Moves" and "My Mind." Her first album for Sub Pop, I Can't Let Go, produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, War On Drugs, Snail Mail, Waxahatchee) and released in May of 2022, is a testament to her powers as a singer and songwriter. The Milk Teeth EP rightly shines a spotlight on her pre-album material, giving these six songs their first physical release.
