Ezra Furman – Love You So Bad (2018)

Ezra

“Transangelic Exodus is a new landmark for the American singer-songwriter: “Not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir,” according to its author. “A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga.”

Night Moves – Carl Sagan (2016)


night

Full of cool, moody surfaces and pop melodies that sounded part mid-’70s, part present day, Night Moves’ debut album, Colored Emotions, was one of the more pleasant surprises of 2012. While the vague country influences on Colored Emotions have faded somewhat, the group’s second album, 2016’s Pennied Days, finds Night Moves moving slowly but confidently forward from their early work. Anchored in the striking, elemental keyboard work of multi-instrumentalist Jared Isabella, Pennied Days is a bittersweet song cycle that suggests several lovelorn characters have moved to a midsized college town
