Tremblers And Goggles By Rank marks a new phase in Robert Pollard's songwriting evolution. His songs have always included non-traditional approaches to form and song structure, but with this album, he has pushed it further than ever. While the familiar Guided By Voices pop-craft and melodic virtuosity always occupies center stage, the first-time listener will never be able to predict what’s coming next in a song.
Bishop Plainview’s debut EP titled The Sunburst Fire harkens back to Dan Engel’s family roots in Northwest Montana and some of the songs are based on real events that happened in the years after his family homesteaded in what is now Sunburst, Montana.
Today, Harrison Brome shares his latest EP, Strange. The five-track EP is a body of work that establishes Harrison as a pop savant of seemingly limitless ideology and no shortage of innovative reference points. Smart, strange, and strikingly indelible, it's another fascinating next step from an artist who's never stopped looking forward.

Moonchild Sanelly's Phases’ 19 tracks document the varying chapters of a toxic relationship and subsequent freedom. A double album, the first side is a journey through the relationship with production reflecting those different moods and aspects of her personality; the second side, meanwhile, leads into a clubbier Amapiano space.
The songs on Afterglow have a more playful, even more raw vibe. Less concerned about petty details, more about the general vibe and fun feeling of creating new music.
Praises returns with a full band and their second studio album In This Year: Hierophant. Through instinct, talent and of course, blind luck, Praises harnessed their sound through the course of the pandemic, leaning into the creative spirit and a recording process reminiscent of a Bad Seeds project, key players wrote their parts from only a demo track and a feeling.

The FIXX recorded Every Five Seconds at three separate locales in London with assistance from a trio of trusted band associates — namely, Nick Jackson at Spacehouse Studios, Adie Hardy at Unit 2 Studios, and Neil Bowerman at Bowerman Studios.
Mr Little Jeans is the musical alias of Norwegian musician and songwriter Monica Birkenes. The new music is a more dynamic record, complete with shuddering bass synth, ice-cold trap drums, and an incredible, enveloping sense of space.
On Bunny Mode, Jaguar Jonze creates a unique and cinematic patchwork of stadium pop, industrial noise, and punchy punk energy to tell her story. It’s jagged, fierce, uplifting, and haunting all at once; a fist-pump in a sweaty room, a solo dance on the living room floor, an echo that reverberates around a canyon. The album is more than just music: it is an entire world for the listener to step inside.

Sophie’s debut EP “Beginner’s Luck” is full of chart- worthy hits. Beginner’s Luck depicts a new chapter in Sophie’s life. "Hunni Hunni" and "Don’t Want No Boyfriend" reflects her spontaneous fun, in the moment and lifestyle.
Drawing from the pair’s diverse backgrounds, Regretski developed a unique sound, shifting from plodding tempos to frantic outbursts, taking time to explore everything in between.
“Fire”, the first track on the Ele.mental, is a passionate pop ballad about losing oneself in a romantic relationship, and is accompanied by an appropriately sensual and intimate music video that features Muunie lost in the kind of passionate physical embrace of another that the song is about, intercut with footage of Muunie climbing out of a cave in a desert. The music video for “Fire” was created in conjunction with director Scott Fleishman of Aplusfilmz.

Slang’s debut Cockroach In A Ghost Town is a force of nature that came, seemingly, out of nowhere. Lyricist/singer/guitarist Drew Grow and drummer/singer Janet Weiss started the band over a decade ago in Portland, or both having spent more than half their lives dedicated to making and performing music.
This is the band’s second consecutive breakthrough: sharper and smarter, with harmonies and rhythms more sophisticated and considered. Blue Skies is still Dehd – just more wild and wonderful than ever before. Another jolt of timely hope, only with twice the power.
The duo ensures their music stays rooted in Austin, tied by friends, Texas family and memory – perhaps the heaviest elemental through line in the band’s prolific catalogue. The track “Town” nostalgically tributes their early Austin days, indulging the extra-cushy weave, sturdy strum and propulsive swirl of Hovvdy’s trademark sound. With the rhythmic lilt of repeated lines “I’m doing so good / I’m doing my best,” it’s all too juicy for chant-along at a sweaty hometown show soon.
