New Music Friday - May 19, 2017

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

Aldous Harding - Party

My first exposure to Harding was back in September, when she opened for Deerhunter in concert. I was immediately blown away both by her music and her unique stage presence. It took a little while for me to find her self-titled debut album on vinyl. Not long after, she announced her follow-up. She's already worked her way up from a New Zealand-based label (she's from the country) to one of the more major of the British indie labels, 4AD. Her first outing with them is spectacular!

Watch: "Imagining My Man"
Watch: "Horizon"

Casey Dienel - Imitation of a Woman to Love

Casey Dienel is better known as White Hinterland, but first released music under her given name. She released her first album, Wind Up Canary, in 2006 before becoming White Hinterland. She's taking on multiple roles in her return to her name, serving as the singer, writer, producer, and engineer on this record.

Listen: "High Times"
Listen: "Thrasher"

Land of Talk - Life After Youth

Land of Talk is a Canadian band fronted by Elizabeth Powell. They first formed in 2006, but have not released new music since 2010's Cloak and Cipher. The band started teasing their return two years ago on their website. Their first album in seven years features vocals from Sharon van Etten on several tracks.

Watch: "This Time"
Watch: "Inner Lover"

The Mountain Goats - Goths

The Mountain Goats have long been well-known for John Darnielle's highly-conceptual lyrics. The singer-songwriter often references his loves in his music; including songs about heavy metal, and an entire album, 2015's Beat the Champ, devoted to his love of professional wrestling. Their latest is inspired by his teenage love of music by 80s goth bands like The Cure, Bauhaus, and Joy Division.
