New Music Friday - May 4, 2018

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

Eleanor Friedberger - Rebound

Fiery Furnaces may have gone on hiatus in 2011, but Eleanor Friedberger has been going strong in her solo career. Rebound is her fourth solo record, following 2016's New View. Fiery Furnaces' seminal Blueberry Boat also got reissued this year!

FAN - Barton’s Den

FAN is the solo project of Meric Long, one-half of The Dodos. That band is far from done (they're actually releasing a new album in just a few weeks). Long introduced his solo career last November with the "Fire" single.

Leon Bridges - Good Thing

Bridges started his career with a throwback sound reminiscent of 1960s soul (think Sam Cooke or Otis Redding). For his sophomore album, he sought to update his sound a bit, and mix some modern pop into his retro style.
