Charts & Adds: Week of 4/14 – 4/21

And just like that, May is next week. Time has seemed both to drag on forever and to pass by in a rush during this quarantine, but one thing is for sure… in the words of Fiona Apple (one of our lovely adds this week), “I’ve been in here* too long.” Check out Fetch the Bolt Cutters and the rest of this week’s charts and adds below.

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.

Full Hand

2.) Kevin Krauter – Full Hand

On his sophomore album, Full Hand, Indiana musician Kevin Krauter tackles complicated emotional states and ideas through elliptical songwriting that is at once poetic and truthful. It’s an album that is a holistic look at a human life in progress–personal flaws mean everything until they suddenly don’t. 

Real Estate: The Main Thing Album Review | Pitchfork

3.) Real Estate – The Main Thing

Coming three years after their last project, Real Estate dives even further into their hook laden indie rock on The Main Thing. The New Jersey band’s bright guitar lines are set against emotionally nuanced lyrics and complex arrangements.

4.) Down Time – Hurts Being Alive

Listening to Down Time is like dropping in on a friend—someone who’s there to listen or challenge or provide a new perspective. Down Time brings excitement to familiarity. It’s a conversation between three friends that invites the listener to be part of the family.

5.) Car Seat Headrest – “Can’t Cool Me Down” [Single]

In 2020, Car Seat Headrest is reinventing itself. This first single release from their upcoming album Making a Door Less Open (their first release in four years) marks a shift from their well-established sound within the realm of gritty rock to their new experimentation in electronic music.
