Looking ahead, June-July 2022

[The Linda Lindas - Growing Up]

UA, Are U Romantic?, May 27

This EP finds UA going back to a more pop sound, very reminiscent of HORIZON.

The Lindas Lindas, Growing Up, June 3

This album is already available on streaming services, and it’s a burner.

Patty Griffin, Tape, June 10

Patty Griffin’s debut album, Living With Ghosts, was pretty much her demo tape. I admit I haven’t followed Griffin since the mid-2000s, but I am curious to see more of her lo-fi side.

… And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, XI: BLEED HERE NOW, July 15

… Trail of Dead was the last rock show to which I attended before SARS-CoV2 slammed the world shut. It feels like yesterday.

Ty Herndon, Jacob, July 15

Ty Herndon has been talking up this album since before writing and recording had finished. He’s a mainstream singer at heart, so I’m not expecting a makeover on the level of Emmylou Harris’ Wrecking Ball. But he does seem to be swinging for the fences on this one.

Perfume, PLASMA, July 27

The pandemic has really messed up my sense of time. FUTURE POP was released in 2018, and I saw Perfume in concert the following year. Like the … Trail of Dead album, it doesn’t seem that long ago.

Vinyl

Cracker, Cracker, May 27

Cracker’s self-titled debut album turns 30 years old in 2022, and the album hasn’t see a vinyl reissue in all that time.
