“The war is on for your mind,” sings Anthony Farrell, one half of Austin duo Greyhounds, who make an audacious statement of substance and style on their second – and best – album ‘Change of Pace,’ out April 1st on Ardent Music. A collection of technicolor soul and sweat-drenched R&B, the album features thirteen new, original songs written by Farrell and Greyhounds guitarist/singer Andrew Trube, and recorded on a collection of rewired keyboards and junkshop guitars.

Her 13th studio album, Reckless, and will mark her first release on the new Nash Icon record label. She once again pairs with Dann Huff, the producer of 2014’s Everlasting album, along with Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Mickey Guyton) on the project.”That’s what making this album felt like to me: coming home,” says McBride. “We took our time and just let the songs and production develop and even though working with Dann and Nathan together was a new experience, somehow we captured a sound that feels like the music I’ve done my whole career and yet fresh at the same time.”

Rogue Wave – Delusions of Grand Fur (2016)

z

It’s refreshing when a group with as long a history as Rogue Wave are willing to continue exploring uncharted territory on their new releases. The Californian four-piece certainly fit this bill on their sixth album, Delusions of Grand Fur. In a small way, the wit of the album title’s pun prepares us for the upbeat sharpness of the record as a whole. Here, Rogue Wave offer an album that’s both innovative and approachable.Delusions of Grand Fur manages to balance clear folk influences with gawking explorations of electronica. Some tracks pull off this juggling act better than others, but more often than not, we’re treated to colourful tonal blends.

Lera Lynn – Resistor (2016)

cover

Out April 29th via Lynn’s own label Resistor Music, Resistor is the Nashville-dwelling singer’s third album, beginning with 2011’s Have You Met Lera Lynn, which pulled more from country influences like Patsy Cline — infused via her Georgia upbringing — than her subsequent work. But there’s a unifying thread in her taste for mood and atmosphere, created as much through taunting lyricism as melancholy guitar plucks and her effortless coo, that makes each album flow artfully and satisfyingly into the next.

The Boxer Rebellion – Ocean By Ocean (2016)

z

Three years since the band’s fourth album, Promises, and with the addition of new guitarist Andrew Smith, Ocean By Ocean presents itself as an accomplished, beautifully orchestrated and impeccably freighted album, with a depth of emotion to every one of the 10 songs that lift each towards the hymnal. Produced by the band in conjunction with the notable Billy Bush (Garbage, Jake Bugg, Against Me!), the sound is brooding and ruminative, with singer Nathan Nicholson’s rising falsetto casting an eerie lava lamp glow on songs that sound good before midnight, and even better afterwards.
