Tune-Yards - I can feel you creep into my private life (4AD)

Tickets on sale now for Tune-Yards live at the Bluebird on May 17th!

Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as their most immediate and upbeat music yet. Tune-Yards is officially a duo- joined by longtime collaborator [and Bloomington-born] Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Merrill Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with mixer Mikaelin "Blue" BlueSpruce (Solange, Kendrick Lamar).

Porches - The House (Domino)

Porches' 3rd record is a conscious effort in minimalism and honesty. "Making Pool"-the band's 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut-"I learned how valuable the spirit of the demos are," says singer Aaron Maine, "so this time I made a point of capturing a song the day it was conceived." Because of this desire to document immediate sensations, the record's fourteen tracks offer a series of diaristic vignettes. There are moments of emerging from fear of ego death, escaping the corporeal, the terrifying thrill of young love, and parting with the past. Though Aaron largely composes on his own, The House features contributions by Sandy Alex G, Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), and a cast of others.

They Might Be Giants - I Like Fun (Idlewild)

TMBG is back! 35 years deep into their epic career. The lead track; I Left My Body; is a prime slice of the power They Might Be Giants commands. Hyper-melodic, fresh, and ever rocking, TMBG formidable live lineup enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the best shows around, and this album is a real showcase for that musical energy. I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling, singular point of view TMBG always delivers.

The Shins - The Worms Heart (Columbia)

The Worms Heart is a complete re-work of The Shins 2017 album 'Heartworms'. The album offers new reworked versions of the original tracks, and the sequence is flipped as well. When James Mercer wrote, produced, and recorded the Heartworms album, he had this desire for an alternate version, an opposite version. The album's slow songs would be flipped and re-recorded as fast songs, and vice versa. The reasoning was to showcase the versatility and strength of his songwriting, and the result is The Worm's Heart.

First Aid Kit - Ruins (Columbia)

This new album finds the Swedish sisters as you've never heard them before: wounded and biting back hard. While Ruins follows the traditions of the classic folk rock sound that they revived via their previous releases, the difference is that this time they've lived, and the results are intense. "The [previous] records were always so perfect," says Johanna Soderberg. On Ruins, the duo didn't want it to feel perfect. They wanted it to feel rough and wrenching. Johanna comments further, "Given the material, the lyrics had to be the focus. These sentiments didn't need to be dressed up. They needed to be naked."

Glen Hansard - Between Two Shores (Anti)

Between Two Shores is the third solo release from singer-songwriter Glen Hansard. His impassioned songs mostly veer between the exhausting struggle to make it professionally and the numbing struggle to keep the affections of a romantic partner. Pick up any Frames or Swell Season record, or his first two solo releases, 2012's Rhythm and Repose, and 2015's Didn't He Ramble to find him chipping away at those two pillars.

Salad Boys - This is Glue (Trouble in Mind)

Christchurch, New Zealand's Salad Boys are back. The 12 songs dig deeper, with sharper hooks embedded deep within a more mature musicality. "This Is Glue" hones Sampson's songwriting chops to a razor edge, with many of the album's songs sounding utterly timeless. The riffs and melodies seem all too familiar, perhaps recalling greats that came before them (The Chills, R.E.M., The Bats), but Sampson has a voice all his own. The themes are darker, the lyrics more claustrophobic and yearning; confronting anxiety, mortality, and fear through an abstract lyrical lens.

Starcrawler - s/t (Rough Trade)

This young LA rock band, fronted by photographer Autumn de Wilde's daughter Arrow, is ready to break out, armed with a cosign from Elton John and a debut album produced by Ryan Adams. If Starcrawler's raucous wall of sound doesn't get your head banging, de Wilde's sinister, blood-spewing stage antics sure as hell will. Equally inspired by Ozzy Osbourne and Iggy Pop, she stalks the stage in a straight jacket and rhinestone-encrusted jockstrap like a pure performance pro.

Van William - Countries (Fantasy)

An enthralling solo debut, Countries signals the arrival of a gifted young artist on the rise. Known for the meticulous song craft of his former acclaimed indie outfits, Port O'Brien and Waters On Countries, Van William offers an auspicious glimpse into a new and promising future. Includes the single "Revolution" featuring First Aid Kit.

Hot Snakes - reissues (Sub Pop)

San Diego's influential post-hardcore all-stars Hot Snakes - boasting members of Pitchfork, Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Earthless, Obits, Burning Brides, OFF!, The Delta 72, and more - released 3 great rock records: Automatic Midnight, Suicide Invoice, and Audit in Progress.
