The new Jessica Lea Mayfield album, Make My Head Sing, is streaming on Pitchfork. It has a lot more edge than her previous album and it satisfies the angsty teen in me, though it’s not an all purpose listening situation. But I dig it.
Exciting news I wasn’t aware of until this week: First Aid Kit has a new album coming out in June! The new song, My Silver Lining, makes me wonder if the new album will have less ballad-leaning songs but it’s hard to judge an album by one song. The vocals are more subdued, but I like it. I love those ladies.
Dabito has a really great new music mix up and through it I discovered Timbre Timbre has a new album, Hot Dreams. I find it to be a bit less spooky-sounding than his other work, but it’s still good late night chill music. His voice is just so haunting, always.
The mix also reminded me I never shared this Ruby the RabbitFoot song, “Ways” I really like that I hear on KCRW a lot. I’m not a huge fan of the rest of the album as it’s a bit too sweet for me, but I love this song a lot. Her voice reminds me of Jenny O. a lot.
