Music Rotation Wednesdays: January 24, 2019

New in Rotation (1-23-19)

Girlpool – What Chaos Is Imaginary

This brand-new indie-pop duo fills a lot of space with their ever-changing sound. From synths, to violins, to guitars, they manage to change it up every song. It’s hard to put a finger on what they should be classified as, but one thing is certain: they’re pretty dang good.

Ceramic Animal – The Horse

Not quite sure what a“Garage Yacht” aesthetic is; but there’s no single category that can fit Ceramic Animal well, so I suppose they can continue to claim that self-made style. Their second release is continuously filled with silky-smooth guitar riffs, within their unique garage and western-rock sound.

Young the Giant – Mirror Master

Sameer’s voice soars, sounding like something from early-2000s Coldplay, in this band’s fourth release. Their alt-pop/rock continues to evolve with each iteration, and this is no exception.

Cherry Glazerr – Stuffed & Ready

After finally coming back from their 18-month tour, Cherry Glazerr is ready to keep us guessing. Their combo of dream-pop, psych-rock, and punk; packaged with a one-of-a-kind in-your-face aesthetic; makes me very excited for when the full album releases February 1st.

Lala Lala & WHY? – Siren 042

Coming off of their pretty successful 2018 release, The Lamb, Lala Lala decided to collaborate with long-time rock/hip-hop group, WHY?, to create a new, laid-back single. It only makes you wonder what other collaborations they may have in store for the future.

Buke and Gase – Scholars

This decade-old pop/rock duo comes back with another interesting project. While well-known for their home-made instruments; they aren’t the only things that are unique. The harsh and heavy backbeats are accompanied by Arone’s soft voice to create an often-unsettling sound; as they continue to experiment with new techniques.
