Staff Picks: Best New Music

all genres

Taylor Swift
Folklore


A woman that has not run out of fearless shifts
The Lawrence Arms
Skeleton Coast


Very average, with some charm.
Havukruunu
Uinuos Syömein Sota


Havukruunu's most ambitious and most epic output yet. A massive riff-fest.
The Chicks
Gaslighter


After a 14 year wait, the holy trinity of country music return to inspire and astound all over again.
Paysage d'Hiver
Im Wald


My very own summer record
Phoebe Bridgers
Punisher


Phoebe Bridgers' strengths are on full display here. But her weaknesses are starting to show as well.
Protest the Hero
Palimpsest


Both a fresh start and a culmination.
Jessie Ware
What's Your Pleasure?


To live my life fearlessly.
Run the Jewels
RTJ4


I am in love with you. It's my only grace.
Emily Keener
I Do Not Have To Be Good


Comforting in its patient, often plodding sense of pace, the warmth of its live production and the soft beauty in Keener’s voice. But also deeply doubtful of the world it’s born into.
Carly Rae Jepsen
Dedicated Side B


Better than Dedicated. On par with Emotion.
Jeff Rosenstock
NO DREAM


NO DREAM is the sound of memories being made in the middle of rough times, mistakes being admitted to and forgiven, and relishing in the joy we find in each other. In other words, it's a Jeff Rosenstock record.
Jess Williamson

Growing old and making sense of it all, Jess Williamson has crafted an immensely personal piece with much wider-reaching implications.
Paradise Lost
Obsidian


"As pure as driven snow."

Afterburner


No
Elder (USA-MA)
Omens


A dramatic alteration with familiar construction
Ulcerate
Stare Into Death and Be Still


This abyss did more than gaze back into me. It spoke...
The Smith Street Band
Don't Waste Your Anger


Maybe this is the thing that I never get through

Empty Country
