Mandolin Orange

Mandolin Orange/ ‘Tides Of A Teardrop’/ Yep Roc


One of roots music’s most thoughtful young groups “exuding gentle elegance” (NPR Music) breaks through on this self-produced album. From the weighty atmosphere of the allegorical “Wolves” to the Appalachian hymn-like yearn of “Suspended In Heaven,” these slow-burning acoustic meditations on love and loss are belied by a newfound directness.

Blank Range

Blank Range/ ‘In Unison’/ Independent


If there's another East Nashville four-piece interested in Cryptozoology, boot-making and writing scores to paintings, they probably haven't toured with Diarrhea Planet, Margo Price or Spoon. Recorded in an old Tennessee farmhouse with minimal gear and even less second-guessing, Blank Range's new album explores themes of unity in loneliness through high-energy thrashers and pedal-steel slow burners, both natural extensions of their incredible live show.

Rustin Man

Rustin Man/ ‘Drift Code’/ Domino


Paul Webb, formerly of Talk Talk, releases a new album 17 years in the making, exploring themes of time and junk with his love of film scores and ‘40s standards. The album was recorded in Webb’s home, a converted barn in an Essex field three miles from the nearest village that is as much Old Curiosity Shop as modern living space.

This 15-year-old Brighton native and “name to watch” (Vogue) recorded these four songs when she was between 12 and 14 years old – a mature and lush world fusing orchestral, hip hop, R&B, and soul.

Henry Jamison

Henry Jamison/ ‘Gloria Duplex’/ Akira Records


The Burlington, VT musical bard with over 70 million Spotify streams confronts the dangers of toxic masculinity on his new album. Through his folk songwriting, Jamison sits in a boardwalk bar drinking whiskey while pondering emotional repression; reflects on the socio-economic divide while watching a group of chummy, Ivy League students ride a train out of NYC; and details the overt, damaging expressions of masculinity lived out through a game of Grand Theft Auto.

Justin Moore

Justine Moore - Grand Ole Opry (Nashville)


In anticipation of his 2019 album, Moore performs with the Opry band. Moore’s “emotional” (Entertainment Tonight) latest single, “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” is a heartfelt, twang-laden salute “backed up by a soaring chorus and weeping guitar work” (Rolling Stone Country). The track offers a taste of what fans can expect both on the road and on his forthcoming album.

Nakhane

Nakhane/ ‘You Will Not Die’/ BMG


At age 19, the South African artist came out to his fundamentalist Christian church and Xhosa family, only to spend the next six years surrendering to the false belief he could pray away his "sinful" sexuality. Now abandoning his religion to embrace his identity with experimental soul, electronic art pop and queer anti-gospel, Nakhane’s US debut captures a heroic voice and an international icon in the making. Madonna, Perfume Genius, Nile Rodgers, Elton John and ANOHNI (who guests on the album) are already fans of Nakhane’s songs of honesty and resilience.
