Last But Not Least: Friday New Releases!
Get the whole gang down to Peaches Records and Tapes for these smokin' platters.
Courtney Barnett - MTV Unplugged Live in Melbourne (Mom + Pop)
One of our artists of the decade caps off the 2010s with a throwback to the ‘90s: an MTV “Unplugged” show. Recorded for the Australian version of the network and now released as an album, this eight-song set includes key selections (stripped-down) from her still-young career, from “Avant Gardener” to “Depreston” to “Nameless Faceless.” And even a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne.”
Camilia Cabello - Romance (Syco/Epic)
Instant star Cabello follows up her Latin-tinged pop debut with more music that references her Cuban roots while making young Americans feel all the feels.
Winter - Hazy (Bar/None)
A Suburbs Pod fave, Samira Winter releases a a five-song EP of low-fi guitar pop that doesn’t hit the listener as much as it surrounds you. The title is truth in marketing.
The Who - Who (Polydor)
Roger and Pete take a break from their countless farewell tours to put out new music with “Who.” What? It’s been 13 since their last album (which no one listened to) and 37 years since the one before that (“It’s Hard,” a gold-seller), and 54 years since they declared they’d rather die than get old. And yet, the new music has a certain unexpected energy. They may not get what they’re after until the day they you-know-what. But let’s appreciate that they’re still searching low and high.
