PRISCILLA RENEA
COLOURED
$10.99(sale priced)
The image of a family tree is embedded in the country songwriting lexicon, serving as a sort of shorthand for core country values of lineage, rootedness and stabilizing familial bonds. Priscilla Renea is no doubt aware of this. Though only 29, she's already a savvy veteran of the music industry. After a fairly rural Florida upbringing, she's spent over a decade learning how to play by, and bend, the rules in the cosmopolitan capitals of pop, R&B, hip-hop and country music-making. Her major label debut may not have generated much attention, but she's left her fingerprints on a slew of hits, from a guitar-driven power ballad for Rihanna to a square dance-influenced club banger, an arena country escapade powered by heavy metal riffs and one of Kelly Clarkson's recent amped-up soul throwbacks.In her own song 'Family Tree,' which opens her captivating new album Coloured, Renea shows her familiarity with country songwriting tropes, but chooses to apply them to the telling of an entirely different, acutely personalized story. She describes a home life that left her feeling unsupported and poorly prepared for the world once she was booted out at age 17. 'I became the roots and the fruits and the branches on my family tree,' she bristles, introducing a dramatic pause in the song as she extends the word 'tree' over a foreboding, vibrato-laden vocal plunge. She casts herself in a role of self-sufficient survivor, accentuating her lonely heroism with the theatrical exertion of her delivery and the track's minor-key, spaghetti western-esque sound.
DAWES
PASSWORDS
$11.99(sale priced)
On the surface, Dawes' songs are bright, approachable, outward-facing throwbacks to the best in classic countrified rock, from Buffalo Springfield to The Band. Its songs often register as comfort food; as the stuff of festival stages in the summertime or barroom blowouts that can barely be contained by closing time. But singer Taylor Goldsmith also uses Dawes as a canvas for serious, sometimes enormously ambitious ruminations on the meaning of life and the myriad ways human beings find love, hope and meaning. Goldsmith clearly loves to cast around for unifying principles, from the one that gave Dawes' last album its title (We're All Gonna Die) to the one at the core of 2011's 'A Little Bit of Everything,' in which the singer revels in the sheer breadth of available experiences. On Dawes' sixth album, Passwords, Goldsmith goes big again: In the grandiose 'Crack the Case,' he identifies empathy and communication as the best pathways to addressing the world's ills, while the closing track's title doubles as a thoroughly Dawesian mission statement: 'Time Flies Either Way.' Even the name Passwords reflects an idea about the way songs can unlock secrets we keep from ourselves, granting us revelations into our own lives.
PANIC AT THE DISCO
PRAY FOR THE WICKED
$10.99(sale priced)
Over the last decade, Panic! have taken on various guises: the cabaret pop-punk starlets (2005s A Fever You Cant Sweat Out, lysergic Beatles enthusiasts (2008s Pretty. Odd) and pop-rock synth-wielders (2013s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare To Die!), while shedding members like they were going out of fashion. By 2016, the band had been reduced to a Brendon Urie solo project. Naturally, he celebrated his newfound freedom by assuming the role of a lavish casino-hopper on the bizarre, jazz-addled EDM of fifth album, Death Of A Bachelor.Hes retained that persona and anything-goes attitude on Pray For The Wicked. Label mate Fall Out Boys Pete Wentz described the record as Death Of A Bachelor [Uries glam 2015 album] on steroids, and thats about right. The sounds here are zanier, basking in the neon glare of the Vegas Strip, as though Urie has bunged the gigantic hooks of modern pop think Dua, Kehlani and Cardi B in a cocktail shaker with old school swing and jazz, throwing back to the hedonistic age of Prohibition.
NINE INCH NAILS
BAD WITCH
$9.99(sale priced)
Though Nine Inch Nails conceived Bad Witch as the final entry in a trilogy of EPs, the six-song, half-hour release is now being called the industrial alt-rock groups first proper album since 2013. For Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (who, after collaborating with Reznor on acclaimed soundtracks like The Social Network, became NINs first official non-Reznor member in 2016), the nomenclature change is their way of imploring listeners not to treat Bad Witch as a mere footnote in the bands discography, but as a complete, thematically unified statement. Thankfully, the record is engaging and inspired enough to withstand such scrutiny. Production-wise, the album sounds amazing, every multilayered arrangement and synth tone calibrated for maximum headphone-listening pleasure. ... Reznor is still making records that crackle with restless energy.
