Jobi Riccio

Jobi Riccio/ ‘Whiplash’/ Yep Roc

Nashville-based musician Jobi Riccio has announced her debut album Whiplash, due out September 8, 2023 on Yep Roc Records. The 11-song collection effortlessly melds classic folk and country sounds with indie, atmospheric production as Riccio searches for a place to call home against the backdrop of embracing her own identity and coming of age. The 24-year-old songwriter grapples directly with a variety of topics on the record, including facing past wounds and embracing her queerness, as she bares her truest self with raw candor, brutal honesty, and an infectious sense of humor. “When I was writing these songs, I kept coming back to this image of someone slamming on the breaks in a car crash and this idea of emotional whiplash,” Riccio explains. “That rush of stress and adrenaline felt similar to what I was experiencing as I emotionally processed my adolescence—almost as if I was being jerked around by one big life change after another.”

Nation of Language/ ‘Strange Disciple’/ PIAS

Nation of Language announce the release of their new album, Strange Disciple. Out September 15th on [PIAS], following performances at Primavera Sound, Pitchfork Festival, Outside Lands and their biggest headline shows to date, the Brooklyn band's third LP is one that is meant to invoke wandering, wondrous walks through city streets both foreign and familiar. In the three short years since their acclaimed debut, 2020's Introduction, Presence, Nation of Language have sustained an increasing ascent from small, hyperlocal scenes to international stages and late-night television, while their musical evolution has embodied three distinct modes of moving through the world: lead singer and songwriter Ian Devaney imagines the band's first album, Introduction, Presence, as taking place in a car, whereas second album A Way Forward occurred on and as a locomotive, influenced by the chugging sound of krautrock. Now, as their first record to be fully created and released outside the confines of a pandemic-instilled lockdown, Strange Disciple is centered around groove-driven songs and bouncing basslines that feel ambulatory and wayfaring, informed by the excitement of exploring new places the band never thought they would see on tour.

Say She She

Say She She/ ‘Silver’/ Karma Chief Records

In what continues to be a massive breakout year for disco-pop outfit Say She She, the group just announced that they will release their sophomore album Silver on September 29, 2023 on Karma Chief Records — 16 original sounds packed with discodelic funk and show stopping three part harmonies that sound like nothing else you’ve heard. 

Silver is a showcase for Sabrina Cunningham’s classically trained vocal, Nya Gazelle Brown’s whistle tones, and Piya Malik’s smooth, funky voice influenced by years as an El Michels Affair staple feature and former backing singer for Chicano Batman. The trio’s voices combine to form feverish, operatic, and entirely mesmerizing harmonies that capture the ecstasy of disco — evoking a distinct Studio 54 era nostalgia while imbuing political grit and global influences to create a sound and energy that is entirely their own.
