1.) Soccer Mommy – color theory

Soccer Mommy’s sophomore album somehow manages to be both brighter and darker than her debut, Cleancolor theory is an exploration in growth, encapsulating the young artist’s rise to indie fame and the struggles that have arisen as a result.

I Was Born Swimming | Squirrel Flower

2.) Squirrel Flower – I Was Born Swimming

Ella O’Connor Williams’s debut album is a sweeping collection of songs that encompass the best parts of female-fronted indie rock. The album’s title refers to the fact that the artist was born still inside a caul sac membrane: literally “swimming.”

3.) Tame Impala – The Slow Rush

Tame Impala’s groundbreaking Currents was a hard album to follow up; this may be, in part, why The Slow Rush arrived a full five years later. Though it is debatable whether this album lives up to its predecessor, The Slow Rush is a dynamic album and a strong return for Tame Impala.

4.) Babehoven – Demonstrating Visible Difference of Height [EP]

Babehoven is fronted by Philadelphia via Los Angeles (via Portland) songwriter Maya Bon. She uses her songwriting as a way to process the struggles of daily existence, of familial trauma, of the processes of letting go.

5.) Ásgeir – Bury the Moon

Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir enters the new decade (after spending time isolated in a summerhouse with nothing but his broken heart and recording equipment) with yet another folktronica album in Bury the Moon. Read the rest of Fernando’s review here.
