3 New Albums Out this week you Should Listen to Now: Illuminati Hotties, Brandi Carlile, and Tirzah
Illuminati Hotties – Let Me Do One More
Let me Do One More is what a punk / pop punk / tender punk / music in general in 2021 should sound like. Sarah Tudzin has found the template for a great record. It’s a genre-defiant and genre-defining album all rolled into one. Let me Do One More is a high-energy album with the right amount of attitude, aspiration, and ambition. The album sees Tudzin partner with Hopeless Records to create her own imprint label, Snack Shack Tracks.
Brandi Carlile – In These Silent Days
In These Silent Days is the seventh studio album from the singer-songwriter. It’s the follow-up from 2018’s critically acclaimed, By The Way, I Forgive You. Confident, compassionate, and full of life, Carlile’s voice radiates with a freshness typically left to the artist that is wet behind the ears. Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the songs were written by Carlile, Tim Hansenroth, Phil Hanseroth, and Dave Cobb.
Tirzah – Colourgrade
Don’t let the intro song and title track throw you off. Colourgrade is an album worth your time. Colourgrade is the Londoner’s second LP and following up on 2018’s Devotion. It’s not your typical album you just happens upon. You have to seek it out. That’s because it doesn’t follow the typical format of popular music. The song structures within will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is coming next.
