Album of the Week: Soccer Mommy, 'Color Theory'


Soccer Mommy, 'Color Theory'

'Color Theory' is a wide, uncanny valley of sound: an array of riffs, beats, melodies, and vibes that are deeply reminiscent of something you feel like you've heard before, but can't quite place.

Album of the Week: U.S. Girls, 'Heavy Light'


U.S. Girls, 'Heavy Light'

Born in the Midwest and now based in Toronto, Canada, Meg Remy founded U.S. Girls and released her debut back in 2008. Since then, she has taken a rotating cast of musicians from making DIY recordings to creating lush studio albums ranging from experimental pop to new wave.

Album of the Week: Tame Impala, 'Slow Rush'


Tame Impala, 'The Slow Rush'

It's easy to push play on the album and get lost in the sonic environment, all you need is a pair of headphones to appreciate the creative mind of Kevin Parker.
