Bon Iver Premiere New Song “AUATC” Featuring Bruce Springsteen, Jenny Lewis, More: Stream

Less than two weeks ago, Taylor Swift embarked on a sonic retreat into the chilly forests on folklore, an album that didn’t just feature Bon Iver on “exile”, but owed him such a musical debt that many jokingly called the record For Taylor, Forever Ago. With the eyes of the world now… Please click the link below to read the full article.

Lomelda Teases Upcoming Album With Gorgeous New Single “It’s Infinite”: Stream

Lomelda, the indie folk project of musician Hannah Read, has shared a new song called “It’s Infinite”. It’s the latest single to come from Hannah, her upcoming album, before it drops on September 4th via Double Double Whammy. Technically, this is the second Hannah teaser, following lead track “Wonder”. Both songs have painted the full-length as an introspective, insightful, and honest listen that uses acoustic guitar and lush percussion to draw out those feelings. On its own, “It’s Infinite” is a gorgeous rush of stirring folk, the kind that Lomelda made a name for herself with, but it carries arguably more momentum than we’ve seen from her prior. Needless to say, that little burst of optimism and emotion is welcome more than ever these days. Editors’ Picks According to a statement f...

Phoebe Bridgers Conjures Spooky New Video For “I Know the End”: Watch

Phoebe Bridgers has conjured up a new music video from her outstanding sophomore LP Punisher. Based on the epic album closer “I Know the End”, the visuals emphasize the darkness in Bridgers’ trademark whimsy. “I Know the End” is a musical two-for-one special; the first half is aching and folksy, while the second slowly builds into a towering apocalyptic frenzy. This frenzied urgency informs much of the Alissa Torvinen-directed video, which follows Bridgers as she navigates dark corridors, emerges from a tub of water, and discovers a locker room full of skeleton onesies, her favorite outfit as of late. The strange and spooky scenes eventually lead up to an epic finale filmed at an audience-less Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. It’s there that she reunites with her band and gets into a...

Mina Tindle Teams with Sufjan Stevens for New Song “Give a Little Love”: Stream

French singer-songwriter Mina Tindle, a.k.a. Pauline de Lassus Saint-Geniès, may be known to many for her collaborations with The National. She is, after all, married to the band’s Bryce Dessner, and appeared frequently on I Am Easy to Find and its subsequent tour. Now, she’s expanding her indie reach with her new album, SISTER, and its latest single, “Give a Little Love” featuring Sufjan Stevens. Lonesome but sweet, “Give a Little Love” flows along gently reverberating guitars and piano notes that seem to coo under Tindle’s voice. The track was written, arranged, and produced by Stevens, and he also contributed subtle backing vocals, adding to the song’s warm feel. “I have always deeply loved Sufjan Stevens music,” Tindle said in a press statement. ”His words and melodies have resonated i...

Angel Olsen Announces New Album Whole New Mess, Shares Title Track: Stream

Last year, Angel Olsen released the orchestral All Mirrors, which quickly became not only one of the best albums of 2019, but of the 2010s in general. While promoting the effort, she frequently mentioned that early versions of the songs were intended for a separate, much more raw release. Today, Olsen has finally announced that companion record, Whole New Mess, and it’s due out August 28th via Jagjaguwar. Nine of the 11 tracks on Whole New Mess will at least be partially familiar to All Mirrors listeners, only here they’re presented in their original, stripped-down form with slightly different titles. You’ll see “Lark Song” instead of the powerful “Lark”, “(Summer Song)” instead of simply “Summer”, and “Chance (Forever Love)” instead of “Chance”. These versions were recorded alon...

Song of the Week: Taylor Swift’s “exile” Reminds Us That We’re Not Alone

Song of the Week breaks down and talks about the song we just can’t get out of our head each week. Find these songs and more on our Spotify New Sounds playlist. It’ll be interesting if a decade or two from now, we’ll look back at “quarantine albums” or “pandemic art” as a thing — like how we classify certain things, including some old music, as “Depression-era.” First, I think we can all agree that we don’t want this tumultuous time to carry on any longer or more destructively than it must. But the isolation and time for contemplation that have accompanied this pandemic have inevitably seeped into music: how it’s created, how it’s shared, how it’s performed, and, yes, even its substance. Might we look back at the growing body of quarantine content in the years to come and acknowledge that ...

Andy Shauf Shares Two New Songs “Judy” and “Jeremy’s Wedding”: Stream

Back in January, Andy Shauf released his wonderful new concept album The Neon Skyline. The rich narrative introduced a number of characters all coming together at a bar in a single night as it explored the relationship between the narrator and his ex-lover. Today, that story gets fleshed out even further with a pair of B-sides, “Judy” and “Jeremy’s Wedding”. Both songs are dreamy teetering on psychedelic, softly strumming folk numbers that carry the dramatic simplicity of Shauf’s storytelling. “Judy” is of particular interest to the Neon Skyline arc, as it finds Shauf’s narrator recounting a routine he and Judy had while still together of buying lottery tickets every Wednesday night. “What would you buy?” he asks himself on the refrain, dreaming of a big win. “I’d buy a ticket fo...

Marking the band’s seventh full-length overall, Good Luck with Whatever is the band’s first with new label Rounder Records. It follows a series of self-released records including 2018’s Passwords, 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die, and 2015’s All Your Favorite Bands. For Good Luck with Whatever, Dawes teamed with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit) at Nashville’s landmark RCA Studio A. According to a press statement from frontman Taylor Goldsmith, the recording process saw him opening up more to his bandmates’ input: “In the past, I’ve definitely been mo...

Sufjan Stevens Unveils New Song “My Rajneesh”: Stream

Last week, Sufjan Stevens shared a magnificent 12-minute epic called “America”. Now he’s back with the B-side, and it’s a gorgeous song about a strange moment in American history: “My Rajneesh”. The Rajneesh movement was a cult in the 1970s and ’80s led by the Indian mystic Baghwan Shree Rajneesh. He founded a controversial sect of Hinduism that emphasized materialism and fornication. After getting run out of India, Rajneesh established a utopian community in the American state of Oregon. Thousands of followers flocked to the compound, and the Rajneesh community took over entire Oregon towns, which they then renamed after their charismatic leader. They also patrolled their territory with Uzis, which did not sit well with the Oregonian government. As tension escalated, Rajneesh cultists gre...

Anjimile Announces Debut Album Giver Taker, Shares “Maker”: Stream

Trans indie songwriter Anjimile has signed on with Father/Daughter Records for the release of her debut album. Titled Giver Taker, it’s due for arrival September 18th. Inspired by “faith, addiction, and Anjimile’s own transition,” the upcoming nine-track project tells a larger story about self-discovery. A statement adds, “Giver Taker captures his ability to not only survive hardships, but grow into the person he was always meant to be.” Born in Dallas, but now based out of Boston, Anjimile infuses his style of indie rock and folk with musical bits of his past and present. Evident are the influences of the African pop passed on by his parents, his time spent in youth choir, and his love of both ’80s classics and recent works from Sufjan Stevens. Most of the recording was done thanks in par...
