The Pack a.d. Dollhouse CD | LP | iTunes | Spotify

Dollhouse, like the band’s other acclaimed albums, is a searing, raw, invigorating work of pure rock ‘n’ roll. Their rich, lush, and complex wall of sound belies the fact that they’re just two people, Maya Miller on drums and vocals and Becky Black on guitar and vocals. What makes this new album different than those before it, however, is this time the band actively critiques culture, an exercise they have usually reserved for a few tracks here and there but never an entire album. – Billboard

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard Sketches of Brunswick East ft. Mild High Club CD | LP | iTunes | Spotify

 Among the most relaxed material the band has ever put out, the new album deviates from King Gizzard’s long-established formula of jam band-esque psychedelic rock with surprisingly agile detours into soul, jazz, North African overtones, and pastoral English folk. – Pitchfork

Vanrip The Coast feat. Anthony Kalabretta iTunes | Spotify

Merging his Future House-tinged sound with Anthony Kalabretta’s wispy vocals, ‘The Coast’ delivers a perfectly matched coming together of feel-good energy, Vanrip’s trademark guitar plucks accompany unmistakeable percussion whilst Anthony Kalabretta’s vocals flow effortlessly alongside. – The Music Essentials

Lee Ann Womack Sunday iTunes | Spotify

Womack recorded the new album with her producer husband Frank Liddell at Houston’s storied Sugar Hill studios, and it’s a warm and soulful take on old-school country sounds. Womack has already released a handful of singles from the album, but this morning, we’re lucky to bring you my favorite song on the LP, a tremolo-heavy slow-burner called “Sunday.” – Tom Breihan for Stereogum

SOJA Moving Stones iTunes | Spotify

‘The song was inspired by the Polynesian concept of ‘Ho’oponopono’ – a harmonious relationship between people, nature and a Spirit or higher power. Within this concept there is a parable that all children are born with a perfect ‘bowl of light.’ As we grow older and experience feelings or thoughts, such as envy or resentfulness that take away from our ‘pono’ or harmonious life, we are adding stones to our bowl and reducing the light in it. If we don’t attend to this light and seek to heal ourselves and those we may have wronged, our bowls can be quickly filled with so many stones that no light can get out. Moving Stones talks about becoming aware of those stones and starting the process of removing them one by one conscious’ – SOJA’s Jacob Hemphill via Relix Magazine
