New Music Monday – 9/5/16

Happy Labor Day, everyone. Here’s our latest New Music Monday, a weekly feature with picks from a variety of hissing lawns contributors.

The Weeks
Jackson, Mississippi, now based in Nashville
“Talk Like That” off the band’s upcoming 3rd LP

If you’ve caught The Weeks’ electrifying live show lately, you might already know this great new song, which was premiered last week by American Songwriter. I don’t think Cyle Barnes’ vocals have ever sounded better. – bill

Angel Olsen
Asheville, NC
My Woman

Lead single “Shut Up Kiss Me” garnered all of the (much deserved) buzz in advance of Olsen’s 3rd full length album but don’t stop there- the full album came out Friday and it’s sublime. Start to finish. Like some David Lynch soundtrack set in the 60’s within a parallel universe that’s happening right now. Olsen’s voice carries wounds and healing with an equal and almost unnerving strength. – Kayne

Kishi Bashi
Athens, GA
“Can’t Let Go, Juno” off the upcoming Sonderlust

Second single off of Kishi Bashi’s fourth studio album, Sonderlust, out 9/16 on Joyful Noise. It’s a synth laden departure for the classically trained violinist known for his upbeat pop leanings. A heartbreak of a dance track. I love that K. keeps pushing into new territory. – Kayne

“Playing Poor” off Gold due 10/28 on eOne Music.

The first track off of my most anticipated record of the year is a ripper, a headlong sprint by one of noise rock’s (hell, all heavy music’s) best. Cathartic, crushing, and not to be missed live. Touring this fall with Red Fang and Torche. – Tom

Helms Alee
Stillicide out now on Sargent House

This one’s not easy to categorize…Doomy, melodic, grungy, metallic, post something…hardcore? rock? metal?…yet somehow still really accessible. Touring now with (the) Melvins, Wednesday night at The Music Farm Charleston, Thursday night at Jackrabbit’s, JAX. – Tom

Ages and Ages
Portland, OR
“As it Is” from the new album Something to Ruin

I haven’t been able to listen to the entire album yet, but the final track of this new release keeps getting stuck in my head. – Jason
