Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending March 3)

The Oscars are tomorrow night! While I'm hoping that some of my favorite films of 2017 will get some love from the Academy, I am looking most forward to the performance of Sufjan Stevens, who is up for the Best Original Song Oscar for his contribution to Call Me By Your Name. He alone is amazing, but he will reportedly be joined by at least two other incredible artists, St. Vincent and Moses Sumney! Ooooooooh, wouldn't the three of them make for an amazing collaborative record? If that happens, look for it on my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, Natalie Prass announced her sophomore album, The Future and the Past.

Prass released her debut self-titled record in 2015, though she started her recording career in 2009 with her first EP, Small & Sweet, and had writing songs and playing in bands since she was a child. That debut was spectacular, earning her many well-deserved accolades.

She debuted the follow-up with the lead single "Short Court Style", showing that combination of modern indie pop, 70s folk, country, and even a bit of doo-wop that makes up her sound. She was featured on the most recent episode of Song Exploder (a great podcast if you like learning how songs come together), and broke apart the track.

The Future and the Past was announced on Monday and is set for release on the first Friday of June!
