TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 1/6/2022 Edition
Starting the New Year with four records we’re really looking forward to: Beach House has been slowly unveiling their next chapter, an epic double LP, and there’s no better place to start than the title track. Once Twice Melody comes out 2/18 on Sub Pop. Based on the evidence of first single “The Hardest Cut”, Spoon has turned the dial back to gnarly guitars, and we can’t wait to hear the rest of Lucifer On The Sofa, due 2/11 on Matador Records.
After the detonation that was What A Time To Be Alive, Superchunk return to classic mold for “Endless Summer”, our first taste of the upcoming Wild Loneliness, releasing 2/25 on Merge Records. Following up their 2017 breakthrough The Navigator, Hurray for the Riff Raff are back with “Jupiter’s Dance”, the second single from their forthcoming Life On Earth, out 2/18 on Nonesuch Records.
