Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending August 19)

St. Vincent was on one of my favorite podcasts this week, Song Exploder, in which she discussed how her most recent single, "New York" came together. It's a pretty awesome episode; Ms. Clark curses... a lot! With the new single and a tour this fall, it seems only a matter of time before we get a new album. If there is an announcement, keep an eye out for it on my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, Alice Glass surprise-dropped her debut self-titled EP.

Glass was a member of the glitchy pop duo Castles until 2014. Her departure was less than amicable, with her former bandmate looking far worse in the aftermath. Crystal Castles continued with a new vocalist and released a new album exactly one year ago.

Alice wasted no time in starting on her solo career, and released her first single, "Stillbirth", in 2015. Her second, "Without Love", premiered just over a week ago. This single appears on this EP, released to the world yesterday.
