Feb 05, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

I was 18 or 19 and I had been listening to Warpaint'Exquisite Corpse EP relentlessly. I was studying down in Brighton and I remember when "Undertow" came out and I used to have to get the train regularly and I think I listened to it 35 times on one journey.  More

My Favorite Album: SPELLLING on Minnie Riperton, Kraftwerk, and Iggy Pop

Feb 04, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

Chrystia Cabral (stage name SPELLLING) is a new star of savory soundscapes. Her rare 2019 full-length, Mazy Fly, was helped by her label Sacred Bones' general ambition. Cabral is enamored by the past-she doesn't listen to much contemporary music, resonating more with playful, messy 1970s and 1980s experimentation. More

My Favorite Album: Jay Baruchel on Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s “Yanqui U.X.O.”

Feb 03, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Yanqui U.X.O is just the soundtrack to a fucking mental odyssey. I grew up in Montréal and if you were a kid in Montréal in the '90s you obviously knew who the fuck Godspeed were.  More

Jan 30, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

I found it when I was 22 or 23. Or maybe it found me. I'd been at the big Salvation Army thrift store not far from my house and someone had dropped off this crate of really amazing recordsan actual record collection of someone deep into musicwhile I was there. More

My Favorite Album: Ellis Ludwig-Leone of San Fermin on Kate Bush’s “Hounds of Love”

Jan 29, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

There are a few formative albums that have been with me since I was a kidGracelandAbbey RoadOdelaywhich are like old friends; and then there are albums that came along at the right time that became influentialCome On Feel the IllinoiseIs This It, Visions. But for an album that continues to challenge and excite me over many listens, I would have to say it's Hounds of Love by Kate Bush.

My Favorite Album: Alan Tudyk on Loudon Wainwright III’s “Grown Man”

Jan 28, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

Loudon Wainwright III's Grown Man-it's hard to narrow down to any one album, but that album is important as far as when it came along in my life. And it's a classic Loudon album. More
