First Listen: New Releases for 3 December

Artist: Me Not You
Album: do you feel the same?
Quick Thoughts: A friend thinks Me Not You is one of her favorite bands, and I was surprised at first until I realized that they keep putting out effort after effort that impresses. I've been on board since "Julia," which was a great alt-indie song. This sophomore effort feels a lot more polished and mature, and it helps make everything feel a little bigger and better. I get a lot of Juliana Hatfield vibes from this one, and that's a real good thing. A highlight this week.
Songs of Note: "california dreamin," "miles and miles," "true blue"

Artist: Kelley McRae
Album: Can You Change the Heart of Me?
Quick Thoughts: Kelley McRae is one of those artists that should really be bigger than she is. This latest effort is roots done right - it's the perfect balance of alt-country and folk that we love around here, and this might be her best overall effort yet. A big fan of this one.
Songs of Note: "Montana," "If You're Lucky"

Artist: Marissa Paternoster
Album: Peace Meter
Quick Thoughts: Going in, if you think this will be a Screaming Females-esque listen, or that Paternoster is taking a Sadie Dupuis approach on solo work, forget it. This is more like an alt-rock singer-songwriter effort with a lot of interesting songs peppered throughout. Definitely quieter and more introspective, and it works pretty well on a whole. Hype train was big on this one, but it deserves all the praise.
Songs of Note: "Black Hole," "Balance Beam" Of note:

  1. Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
