Metal Blade

The bandís long-awaited Moon Healer is musically multifaceted, unabashedly brutal, and compellingly conceptual.

Polyvinyl Records

Trailblazing powerhouse Laura Jane Grace returns with an even stronger set of Ď50s-biting rock songs on her second full-length solo album, confronting aging, dysphoria, sobriety and her own legacy. While 2020ís Stay Alive felt limited by pandemic and production, Hole in My Head is an open invitation to a wild romp through Graceís psyche.

Dangerbird Records

With the album title Blu Wav meant to be a literal mash-up of ďbluegrassĒ and ďnew waveĒ, the new collection has a distinct feel, a uniform vibe, and a somewhat unexpected sound. Lytle incorporates the lo-fi lushness and sometimes-psychedelic orchestration Grandaddy is known for with his first foray into true country.

Death Note Music, LLC

Originally released independently in 2016 and commercially re-released in 2020 after Peep's untimely 2017 death, Crybaby's slow, thoughtful, and sweetly dreary songs were indeed music for searching, sensitive types to play when deep in their feelings. Itís a dismal, grasping affair that feels beautiful in all of its sadness.

Napalm Records

Elegantly progressive and seemingly allergic to clichť, Illumishade set out with a flamboyant flourish, casually blending everything from gleaming modern metal to arcane atmospherics into their always highly melodic and symphonic sound. So much for the "difficult second album". This is the kind of immaculate creation from which great legacies are built.

Tyler Ramsey

Fans of Ramseyís former projects, Band of Horses, Father John Misty and Lord Huron, will find New Lost Ages to be a relatable reprieve - one that feels both familiar and starkly new. Traversing genre-bending terrain, the new record is as indie and psych-rock as it is singer-songwriter, showcasing his talent and dedication to the craft.

Century Media

Fans of big, shiny, 21st century melodic death metal are more than catered to these days, which makes this full-blooded return to first values all the more satisfying, particularly for those of us who prefer to dwell in the dirt. Upon Stone have resurrected something of profound value here. Dead Mother Moon is the real thing, revived and realized anew by true believers.
