PRESS PLAY: 6 New Albums Out September 18th!
Yes, it’s 2020 but for a week let’s relish in some ’90’s musical nostalgia. For the first time in nearly twenty years, Semisonic is back! The Minneapolis trio, led by heralded songwriter Dan Wilson, recapture their power-pop magic on a new EP called You’re Not Alone. It’s been twenty-five years since Joan Osborne released Relish, and while Joan has steadily put out music over the years our excitement is still high for Trouble and Strife.
The New York duo Cults release Host today, an enchanting and sonically hypnotizing set of songs. Powerful, innovative, captivating; just a few words that come to mind when listening to Peninsula, the new album from Naomi Hamilton, aka Jealous of the Birds.Also this week, lend an ear to Boston based songwriter Anjimile and their debut Giver Taker. And lastly, some folk-rock goodness courtesy of the Eastern Pennsylvania duo Native Harrow, who release their album Closeness today. #PressPlay and enjoy!
