Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending August 3, 2019)

I must issue a correction on my post from a couple of weeks ago, I mistakenly referred to Brandi Carlile's new all female country supergroup as The Highwaywomen... that's a different band (also an all-female country group). The new group consisting of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires, and Natalie Hemby is The Highwomen.

They still have their debut album together set to come out in a few weeks, check it out over at my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, The New Pornographers announced their eighth album, In the Morse Code of Brake Lights.

The indie rock supergroup has been a consistent presence, releasing new albums every two to three years. Their most recent, Whiteout Conditions, was released in 2017. I've seen no mention yet of whether Dan Bejar will return on this record after sitting out the 2017 album.

In the Morse Code of Brake Lights was announced yesterday along with lead single "Falling Down the Stairs of Your Smile." The album will be released on September 27.
