If you’ve lost track of the days (or weeks!) in your isolation, don’t worry, it’s Friday and we’ve readied a playlist of new albums just for you! Waxahatchee, former Philly songwriter Katie Crutchfield, puts out Saint Cloud today and it’s the musical relief we all need right now. There’s an honestly, optimism, and breeziness that makes this one of the year’s best so far. Adored alt-rockers Pearl Jam are back with their first new album in seven years! They flex their muscles on songs like “Superblood Wolfmoon” and venture into new musical directions as you’ll hear on “Dance of the Clairvoyants”. Also on the playlist this week, the debut from Philadelphia songwriter and producer Orion Sun, Lilly Hiatt’s confident Walking Proof, a Scott Avett produced Clem Snide album, and more! #PressPlay and enjoy!
