Paired with the occult imagery and dark mysticism of her latest music videos, Torres’ sophomore album Sprinter is definitely a spiritual one—haunting and unapologetic.
In the absence of Azure Ray and Emily Haines (& The Soft Skeleton), singer/songwriter Eddi Front is picking up where her predecessors left off, with a new track out and news of a debut album to be released later this year.
Mitski‘s EP Bury Me at Makeout Creek debuted this past November, but not a whole lot has been said about her music on the West coast. She’s toured all over the US, with stops that included SXSW, but to my dismay she hasn’t toured in California just yet.
The Tallest Man on Earth has graced us with the title track from his upcoming release Dark Bird is Home, which will be out on May 12th. “Dark Bird is Home” is the second song to hit the internet after “Sagres.”
