Western Residents — Sunlit Nights


Indie

Zach Hale
When describing music, the word "maturity" implies that some weathering has been endured by a band — through trial and error, life events or what have you — before attaining this idea of a true identity, if it ever does.

Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

Bowlsey — Sleepy Weather


Indie

Zach Hale
Bowlsey is a fearless bunch. Not fearless in that robotic, armor-clad superhero kind of way, but fearless because its members have nothing to lose, so why not rap over that muffled synth-pop track? Hell, you could even plant it between a couple soulful acoustic ballads. Sure, that’ll work.

Leaf Hands — Your Imagination


Indie

Louis Fowler
While listening to the opening track of Leaf Hands’ Your Imagination, it’s almost impossible to not stare at the cover art: a bleak, early-winter rural landscape wherein distant figures huddle together and feel a lo-fi sense of melancholy.

Kings of Leon — Mechanical Bull


Rock

Zach Hale
Let’s be perfectly clear: Kings of Leon sold out. That’s not always necessarily a bad thing, but in this case, it is.
