Snail Mail (Matador Records / Baltimore)
Lindsey Jordan just graduated from high school last year, but the 18-year-old wunderkind is already turning heads with her band Snail Mail. She’s not one to waste time – she was just 16 when she dropped her acclaimed six-song cassette EP Habit. Her fantastic debut album Lush is full of pithy and poignant tales about growing up, breaking up and messing up, with her classically trained guitar flourishes. In songs like “Heat Wave,” Jordan sounds wise beyond her years, singing from the perspective of a young queer punk kid in a time of massive cultural transformations. As she admits, “It’s a real emotional roller coaster.” - Rolling Stone

Why Bonnie (Sports Day Records / Austin)
Austin four-piece Why Bonnie have a sound that’s endlessly familiar, yet one that still escapes description in fuzzy, effortless bliss. Originally the bedroom project of Blair Howerton, the band has spent the last few years channeling the shimmering dream pop of acts like Alvvays, Charly Bliss, and Beach House into something blown-out and overflowing with wide-eyed, summertime nostalgia. On their latest single “Made of Paper,” the act explore changing generational relationships to take comfort in fact that the day’s endless difficulties aren’t really all that different from those that came before us. “I never knew my great-grandmother but I’m always told I have her skin,” sings Blair Howerton with the song’s opening, diving into a soaring indie-pop escapism. - SPIN
