Arlo McKinley announces the release of This Mess We're In: a new album, a long look in the mirror, and an internal compass navigating the next chapter of his storied life and burgeoning career. Out July 15 on Oh Boy Records, the follow up to 2020's acclaimed Die Midwestern makes a compelling argument that bad days really do get better, that love is still alive. Across the 11 tracks, captured at Memphis' famed Sam Phillips Recording Service and produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell, St. Paul & The Broken Bones), the Cincinnati songwriter emerges from the bleak, emotional fog that hung over his past two years. From the passing of his mother and best friend, to multiple others taken by the devils of addiction, McKinley drew inward for comfort, using the music as a way to orient himself in an uncertain world.
Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath and Daughter of Swords' Alexandra Sauser-Monnigannounce their debut album as The A's. Out July 15th on Psychic Hotline, Fruit is a wonderful, weird and whimsical collection of 10 joyous, yodeling folk songs that invite the listener to cackle and cry along. Featuring new interpretations of lullabies, traditional ballads and rural standards, plus the original "When I Die" and other music that Meath and Sauser-Monnig simply love to sing, Fruit spans decade and genre, and celebrates the cosmic bond the two Mountain Man bandmates and longtime friends have cultivated.
ATO Records introduces The Heavy Heavy. Led by Will Turner and Georgie Fuller, the Brighton, UK-based band warps time and place through an unfettered collision of rock n roll, psychedelic blues, acid rock and sunshine pop. Across their debut Life and Life Only EP, the group breathes incandescent new energy into sounds from decades ago, transcending eras with euphoric ease as they tap into musical touchstones that range from folk-blues duo Delaney & Bonnie, Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac and British Invasion acts like The Hollies, to a sonic alchemy all their own. Full of effusive harmonies and fuzzed-out guitar on tracks like the whirlwind road trip of "Miles and Miles," the near-operatic epic of "Sleeping on Grassy Ground," the rapturous opening of "All My Dreams," and "Go Down River," the first song they ever recorded together, Life and Life Only pulls listeners into a sublime fugue state, leaving one newly awakened to infinite possibilities.
ODESZA announces their fourth album: ‘The Last Goodbye’ which will be released July 22 via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune.
Symphonic, vast, and emotionally stirring, ‘The Last Goodbye’ is set to be the GRAMMY-nominated duo’s most ambitious album to date. A project rife with brightness and emotion, nostalgic yet rooted in the present, it serves as a sweeping sonic experience that speaks to themes of connection, reminiscence and the impact we impart on one another. It’s a vivid celebration of the people and moments that have left fingerprints on our existence, echoing throughout the record. As the duo’s most personal record to date, it’s a brilliant collection which looks to interweave the past and the present in a euphoric way.
