Umi Copper is a multi-instrumentalist based in L.A who is set to release his highly anticipated premiere EP titled: “Requiem.”
Brooklyn based artist Harrison Lipton is here with a new LP entitled Loveliness. Harrison Lipton sets out as a multi-instrumentalist to show off his amazing ability to create a lasting and mostly coherent record. Sitting at 10 tracks long, the album is a calm and melancholy listen in its whole. The whole record sits in a world that is submerged in a carefree and stress relieving world.
Los Angeles surf rock band, La Luz, is back with their third album titled Floating Features. Mixing in some lush 1960’s pop guitars, grooving bass, and tight drums make for a very relaxing and mellow listen. La Luz knows fairly well that they are not treading new waters or even adding a new twist to the surf rock genre itself, instead they fully embrace the time they are given to bask in the sunshine.
Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys finally make their long awaited comeback with the highly
anticipated Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino. Avoiding releasing any single prior to release and only offering the most brief teases, Arctic Monkeys opted to let their fans dive into these oddly titled songs with a complete fresh perspective. With AM being five years ago, do the Arctic Monkeys successfully return the scene with ease and wit that we’ve come to expect?
Country singer and Purcell, Oklahoma native, Parker Millsap returns to the music scene with his fourth solo record entitled, Other Arrangements. Impressive to this record is the influences that Millsap pulls in from so many other genres to help craft his own unique sound, but never quite loses sight of the country or Americana label.
It’s finally here. After so much anticipation in their hometown, and a impressive sold out album release show at the Lowbrow Palace in El Paso, Texas, Pilots of Venus have released their debut album entitled Lady Astronaut. This is an impressive debut LP. Right from the opening seconds, Pilots of Venus essentially stomp as hard as possible on the gas and embark in break-neck speed trip through 90’s inspired alternative rock. Taking cues from Pixies, Nirvana, and punk rock in general, this nine-track list is incredibly astonishing as well as nostalgic in a sense.
Ash Reiter and Will Halsey of Sugar Candy Mountain have returned with the psychedelic sunshine pop that is Do Right. The 10 track LP is beautifully reminiscent of 60’s pop. Each song is a delicious slice of cake that explores the very different flavors of the psychedelic genre.
