PRESS PLAY: New Albums out February 9th - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Anything goes in this week’s batch of new releases. Alabama Shakes guitarist Brittany Howard packs funk, blues, and the kitchen sink into her bold second solo album, What Now. Toronto duo Ducks Ltd. pair effervescent guitar pop with down-to-earth lyrics inspired by true-life struggles on Harm’s Way. Nashville’s Madi Diaz is in top melodic form on Weird Faith, which features a standout duet with Kacey Musgraves. Roberto Lange’s eighth album as Helado Negro, PHASOR, is a warm and atmospheric love letter to exploring the outside world.

Between churning beats and unnerving silences, Chelsea Wolfe allows beauty to bloom on She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She. London singer-songwriter Declan McKenna is bathed in sunshine and psychedelic energy on his third album, What Happened to the Beach?. Though it began as a vehicle for Vanessa Briscoe Hay to keep performing her legendary group’s material in concert, Pylon Reenactment Society has mutated into its own beast with fresh originals sitting alongside Pylon rarities on their full-length debut, Magnet Factory.
