J Mascis - What Do We Do Now?

Label: Subpop
Genre: Rock
For fans of: Dinosaur, Jr, Kurt Vile
Reviewed by: Payton Williams
Although J Mascis' new album is almost Indistinguishable from all of his other solo albums, that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's worse things in the world than sounding like J Mascis, but that doesn't even approach anything resembling new ground. Although littered with cool guitar solos and tasteful songwriting (as usual), What Do We Do Now doesn't leave a lasting impression.


Joel Ross - nublues

Label: UMG
Genre: Jazz
For fans of: Jack DeJohnette
Reviewed by: Payton Williams
Some of the tracks here are essentially wallpaper, but when it hits, it definitely hits. The title track is the big standout, and definitely a must hear for the WUVT jazz audience.


Applesauce Tears - Encounters

Label: Black Cottage
Genre: Instrumental Rock
For fans of: Castlebeat
Reviewed by: Baile Liu
Absolutely nostalgic instrumental goodness. Surprisingly, the combination of horns, melodic synths, and interesting drum beats mix very well. The lofi-like sound sometimes make some tracks a bit repetitive, but the album always rewards you with a genre-defining sound.


Katy Kirby - Blue Raspberry

Label: Anti
Genre: Indie Pop
For fans of: Soccer Mommy, Big Thief
Reviewed by: Brody Toth
Although Katy Kirby don't bring anything new to the table with Blue Raspberry, this album is another great example of what good vocal-centric indie music sounds like. The vocals in this album are authentic, and the instrumentation was neat and clean. Very palatable and any track could work with most indie tracks in a mix.
