This week we’re highlighting new music from English Teacher, The Ballroom Thieves, and Asha Jefferies.

English Teacher – This Could Be Texas

This Could Be Texas marks the debut album of the English rock band English Teacher, released on April 12th. A fusion of post-punk, math rock, and electronic elements with autotune, the album presents a diverse sonic landscape that reflects the band’s eclectic influences. The album’s 13 tracks showcase the band’s evolution since their EP Polyawkward, with compositions ranging from nostalgic reflections on university life to introspective musings on societal issues and mental health. Lead singer, Lily Fontaine articulates the album’s sonic and thematic breadth, describing it as an exploration of “the in-betweens,” where the listener is transported to a space that feels both familiar and alien.

The Ballroom Thieves – Sundust

Esteemed indie folk duo hailing from New England, The Ballroom Thieves, present their fifth full-length album, Sundust, an inquiry into the possibility of embracing tenderness amidst the cacophony of modern existence. Comprised of Calin Peters (vocals, cello, bass) and Martin Earley (vocals, guitar), the duo navigates the labyrinth of mental health awareness and interpersonal connection in a world inundated by digital noise and cultural saturation. Sundust emerges as a lush, 10-track opus, offering a reflective journey through the nuances of the human experience. Themes of self-awareness, the dismantling of trauma-induced barriers, and the pursuit of healing resonate throughout the album, juxtaposed with moments of profound beauty and a yearning for genuine human connection.

From the haunting opener ‘Stranger’ to the euphoric anthem ‘Brand New Bitch,’ each track showcases Jefferies’ ability to navigate the complexities of relationships and self-discovery with raw honesty and vulnerability.
