The locals lead the way on this week’s batch of new releases. The Districts shift towards a bold, new wave-influenced direction on Great American Painting. Tiffany Majette’s ever-evolving project Orion Sun returns with the Getaway EP. Around the globe, Norwegian experimental pop virtuoso Jenny Hval makes her 4AD debut with Classic Objects.

On Invisible Pictures, Nashville mainstay Jeremy Ivey offers a swaggering Countrypolitan set. Dirty Projectors member Maia Friedman takes flight on her solo album Under the New Light. New York duo Widowspeak‘s sixth LP, The Jacket, is a collection of tough and tender indie gems. PRESS PLAY on these new releases (and plenty more) below…
