7 will be the 7th full-length record by Baltimore’s dream pop band Beach House after they released an album of b-sides and rarities last year. Coming out on May 11th through Sub Pop, you can already pre-order it and listen to three of the songs.
Exactly two years ago, on April 1, 2016, Tancred released their groundbreaking third and so far latest album Out of the Garden. Now they have announced their fourth full-length album Nightstand, which will be available on June 1 and can already be pre-ordered.
This week’s featured artist fuvk definitely finds her music to be therapeutic. She started writing lyrics as a coping mechanism for depression and anxiety, and she hopes that people can find a sense of relatability through her words. Even if people can’t share her experiences, they probably can understand her sentiments in the music and lyrics and find solace in that kind of solidarity.
New Jersey’s punk icons Screaming Females released their seventh full-length album on February 23rd. They are by no doubts breaking the boundaries of their so far known and loved straight-forward indie rock. Being more expansive and imaginative, while evoking the energy and spontaneity of their live shows, is hopefully a milestone in them reaching a broader audience.
Sorry men, the music year 2018 belongs to the women. At least when you look at this year’s line-up of Eurosonic Noorderslag. Probably the first festival of the year, the trendsetting happening in Groningen, Netherlands, offers a stage for more than 100 emerging bands from all over Europe. And surprisingly many artists were women.
A Song A Day is an excellent source to find new music, we use it a lot. At the end of the year, they curated a special best-of, with albums that have something to say about the not so easy year we just finished.
