Angel Olsen announced her fourth album, All Mirrors, a few weeks back. I'm incredibly excited for it and, yes, I have preordered it (possibly twice, I'm not sure if my first order went through). She already released one amazing track from the new album, but released a second this week, "Lark."
Sleater-Kinney released The Center Won't Hold, their incredible, St. Vincent-produced ninth album, earlier this month. They released a new video for one of the album's tracks this week, "Can I Go On." The video starts out innocent-looking enough, with a pair of older ladies about to enjoy some tea together. Things quickly devolve, however, into a knock-down drag-out bout, complete with stripping and mud.
Lucy Dacus has been releasing one-off singles every few months this year. She's released four so far and her latest is a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark." The cover is dedicated to both Springsteen and Dacus' father.
Finally, in album announcement news, FKA twigs announced her sophomore album, Magdalene!
The album follows her incredible LP1 and will feature Future and production from Jack Antonoff, who seems to be becoming one of the biggest names in pop production today (he also produced new albums from Lana Del Rey, Kevin Abstract, and Taylor Swift). She previously released one song from the album, "cellophane," and released "holy terrain" along with the album's announcement. The album will be released on October 25.
