This isn’t meant to put any undue pressure on you, but seeing as how it won’t be much longer before families gather for the holidays, time is running out to fill your brain with new music to wow your aunts and uncles. Plush arrangements and impressionistic lyrics are the hallmarks of Natalie Mering’s dream-pop project Weyes Blood; she’s firing on all cylinders on her fifth LP, And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow. Recent Free at Noon guest (and Artist to Watch) Cautious Clay follows last year’s full-length debut with the richly textured Thin Ice on the Cake EP. XPN favorite Amos Lee makes an adept swerve into the realm of jazz with his airy tribute to Chet Baker, My Ideal. It’s been nearly a decade since Caitlin Rose‘s last release; the Nashville singer bounces back with the eclectic and star-making CAZIMI.

Fresh off a sold-out stand at The Met, bluegrass whiz Billy Strings teams up with his father, Terry Barber, for the exhilarating (and heartwarming) Me and Dad. Philadelphia rocker Augusta Koch reflects on sobriety and human connection on Don’t Know What You’re in Until You’re Out, the second album from her post-Cayetana outfit Gladie. XPNFest highlightNeal Francis follows his spring debut with the Sentimental Garbage EP, doubling down on his energetic brand of psychedelic soul.
