It’s no mirage: a batch of sun-bathed new albums emerges like a summertime oasis. Philadelphia’s Florry deliver their strongest album to date, The Holey Bible; a charming flip on classic country motifs. As a member of Au Revoir Simone, Annie Hart made ethereal, Lynchian electronica; her third solo LP, The Weight of a Wave, ups the BPM for a effervescent listen. The Front Bottoms‘ seventh album, You Are Who You Hang Out With, continues the New Jersey duo’s streak of incisive lyricism and energetic arrangements.

From their beginnings as a Sarah Records-influenced guitar trio to their later foray into dancefloor pop, Girl Ray find a lively middle ground on their third full-length, Prestige. Nevada-based Current Joys is the creative vehicle for the omnivorous Nick Rattigan; LOVE + POP is a collaborator-filled love letter to late emo rapper Lil Peep. Recorded in 2018, Sunset 666 is a career-spanning document of The Jesus and Mary Chain as the Scottish noise pioneers opened for Nine Inch Nails over several nights at the Hollywood Palladium.
