Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending September 24)

The MidPoint Music Festival is this weekend! It's one of the many highlights that has come out of living in Cincinnati. Sure, a lot of cities host music festivals, but the size and cost, along with the caliber of artists that they bring in, makes this one a great experience. Many of the artists playing have albums coming out soon, check them out on my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, Louisville-based Twin Limb announced their debut album, Haplo.

I actually hung out a bit with frontwoman Lacey Guthrie towards the end of my college days; we had a mutual friend in someone I met while working at the student union. It's no surprise that she and her band are becoming known. I was always impressed with her songwriting, voice, and accordion-playing (and thought she was one of the coolest people I had ever met).

The band released their debut EP, Anything Is Possible and Nothing Makes Sense, late last year and garnered praise from two of my favorite resources for new music, NPR and Stereogum. The album's announcement was joined with a new video, for the track "The Weather."

I hope and expect for the band's successes to continue through this album and into the future. Haplo is set to be released on October 28.
