The Shins – Heartworms [2017]

The Shins’ Heartworms is an understated and charming production of orchestral rock, surfy riffs cresting summery melodies and experimental streaks of reverb. It even includes a couple of just-about-danceable dashes of synth-heavy trips glowing with a glammy new-wave ...

Hand Habits – Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void) [2017]

Hand Habits’ debut LP, Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void), evokes a striking image, that of submitting oneself to an expansive unknown with arms outstretched. It’s a feeling Meg Duffy, the singer-songwriter behind this project, knows well; the upstate New York native
