The perfect end to this rainy week in Philadelphia is a mammoth deluge of new albums! At long last, XPN Artist to Watch Wet Leg release their self-titled debut, and it’s everything you could hope for from the effervescent indie duo. On his ambitious fifth album, Chloë and the Next 20th Century, Father John Misty re-emerges with a sweeping new sound. After years as the go-to backing vocalists for Brandi Carlile and The War on Drugs, Lucius step back into the glimmering spotlight on the Carlile-produced Second Nature. The first of two records he’ll release this year, Fear of the Dawn is an exhilarating and unpredictable comeback from Jack White.

Teen (and pre-teen) punks The Linda Lindas make their bottle rocket of a debut with Growing Up. On This is for the Barbarians, Philly favorite Mondo Cozmo channels a mixture of big beat and Madchester rhythms. Songwriter/poet Kae Tempest is joined by Lianne La Havas and Grian Chatten of Fontaines D.C. on their fourth solo album, The Line is a Curve. Iconic mysterioso Orville Peck expands his noir-country style on his long-awaited second LP, Bronco. PRESS PLAY on these new releases (and so, so many more) below…
