Stone finds the Philadelphia quartet streamlining the momentous multi-genre vocabulary of its critically-acclaimed predecessor Gold & Grey. This is still very much Baroness—just refocused for efficiency and rethought as a consequence of stability. These tracks reflect thoughtfully, groove deeply, and refract tumult effortlessly. And they, of course, rock.
Post-Disney, Olivia Rodrigo arrives kicking and screaming into reality. There was an irreplicable magic on Sour, so why try to recreate it. Guts is a different beast – an ode to the angsty, aching final days of being a teenager and girlhood, it’s a formidable second album that leaves Rodrigo ready to face whatever is thrown her way next.
Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus treat us to a full-length that’s everything a debut should be: exploratory, explosive and full of heart. Each track comes as somewhat of a surprise, from the opening a capella composition to tender (anti)lovesongs, to heavy, nonchalant bangers. It’s uncontainable energy from three wildly talented songwriters.
Del Rey’s ninth album is heavy and disarmingly truthful, yet expands its lens thanks to her wide-ranging, alluring aesthetic looseness. It might deal with major existential questions, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as it cements Del Rey’s status as one of modern music’s most intriguing songwriters. Featuring Father John Misty, Jon Batiste and more.
An immersive plunge into the waters of love and loss. The fluid groove of “Blue” feels like a Sade B-side, while “Love Between” weaves doo-wop nostalgia into crystalline romantic reverie. It’s her smoldering voice that holds all the dreaminess together – never maximalist, always utilitarian, molded to fit revenge and desire in equal measure.

Indie Exclusive Diamond Clear 180g LP.
If his debut found J. Cole bringing the sound of Drake down to the streets, the Roc Nation rapper's sophomore effort finds him going for the full Illuminati and attempting an ambitious, multi-faceted album in the style of his label boss, Jay-Z. It’s a genuine, mature step in the right direction and will have no trouble reaching vintage age.
Sufjan Stevens blurs distinctions between the major and the minor, between the details that color our existence and the big events that frame our lives. He has turned historical footnotes of States into kaleidoscopic pop, and rendered the immeasurable grief of loss with intimacy and grace. His new album, Javelin, bridges all these approaches.
A thunderstorm of a return is what the legendary trio has in store for us on Cool It Down, the YYY’s fifth studio album and their first since 2013’s Mosquito. The eight-track collection, bound to be a landmark in their catalog, is an expert distillation of their best gifts that impels you to move, and cry, and listen closely.
Inspired by jazz greats and classical masters while possessing a 21st-century point of view, Bewitched represents an expansion of Laufey’s sonic palette. Breezy bossa nova cuts and smoldering string-assisted ballads feel instantly timeless, while Laufey’s conversational lyrics give her music a relatability to the next generation.
Released in 2013, Donald Glover’s sophomore album lends perspective to the complications born from an Internet-obsessed society.
