Brand New Music

Tirzah | Devotion
The London-natives Tirzah and her childhood friend Mica Levi have teamed up create a debut LP that is fiercely unique, relatable, raw and honest. Devotion feels like a hazy photograph taken during the golden hour, all at once a ghastly, stuttering vision but also joyful in feeling. Making magic out of their minimalism Tirzah and Levi mixes experimental electronic tones with a powerful R&B soul, making a bold statement of intent from a young artist who already sounds like she’s carving out her own niche.

The Beths | Future Me Hates Me
Polished yet unpretentious, the engaging bubble-grunge styling of The Beths is on full display on their first full length LP. With one foot in the ’60s and another in the ’90s the sad sincerity of their lyrics compromises with the light-hearted and humorist music. Perfect players of music that is heartfelt but never taking itself too seriously, this album drowns out any existential hand-wringing in a blissful wave of high-energy guitar pop.

Tomberlin | At Weddings
Tapping into a sort of inner strength and creating a record that is altogether soothing, haunting and tender. The almost hymn-like nature of Tomberlin’s vocal style hearken to a life lived sheltered from secular music. The most outstanding feature of Tomberlin’s performance is the patience and maturity that some of the moments unveil themselves. Fighting the urge to be nostalgic, and treating the music with reverence makes At Weddings resoundingly beautiful. Come for the beautiful folk of Tomberlin, but stay for the great but understated arrangements of Owen Pallett.
