TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 5/6/2021 Edition
Welcome back to another week of Tracks, packed with the jams. Kicking off this week is the pensively intoxicating “Christina’s World”, from Denver-based Midwife. The brainchild of Madeline Johnston, her new LP Luminol will be out 7/16 on The Flenser.
Next up is “I Wanna Die But I Can’t (Cuz I Gotta Keep Living)” from Brooklyn’s Pronoun, the project of Alyse Vellturo. 2019’s I’ll Show You Stronger was a Nest favorite, and the new EP OMG I Made It comes out 6/18 via Wax Bodega.
“Wellwave” is our formal introduction to Lucid Express. The self-titled debut album from the Hong Kong shoegaze/dreampop quintet arrives 7/16 on Kanine Records.
Hushpuppy is Zoë Brecher, (also a newly minted member of Bachelor). “I Do What I Want” is the calling card from her latest LP Singles Club (Remastered), released in April on Babe City Records. Closing out this week, a reminder that tomorrow, 5/7 is of course, Bandcamp Day.
