Lewloh – michigan/missinghim (Where Are The Fruits)
Singapore-born folk singer-songwriter Lewloh has found fans across the world ever since the release of his 2017 debut album Lullacry. In his newly released sophomore album michigan/missinghim (Where Are The Fruits), Lewloh fittingly writes about the emotions behind finding your second love. Produced alongside Nashville-based producer Isaiah Beard (Baerd) and Joshua Evan Lee (SLAYN), michigan/missinghim is a 13-track narrative about finding the courage to open yourself up to someone again after experiencing heartbreak. Listen to michigan/missinghim out everywhere now!
Ngaiire – 3 (Majestic Casual Records)
Papua New Guinea-born and Australian-based Ngaiire’s latest album 3 (Majestic Casual Records) began in 2017 when she and her creative team traveled to her home country of Papua New Guinea as part of an art experiment to deconstruct people’s misconceptions of what it means to be a Papua New Guinean. While a lot has happened since the project initially began – from getting married, becoming a parent, living in isolation during a global pandemic – Ngaiire came out on the other side feeling like she doesn’t “have to prove anything to anyone anymore.” Says Ngaiire, “So here is a collection of love letters to 3 entities – myself, my country, and those I love both here and now departed.”
The Bronx – Bronx VI (Cooking Vinyl Limited)
American punk rock band The Bronx celebrates the release of their sixth studio album, Bronx VI, out now via Cooking Vinyl Limited. Bronx VI is the Los Angeles-based band’s first album in four years and has already received high praise. Kerrang says that while many punk rock bands have a seven or eight-year lifespan, that theory just isn’t true for The Bronx. Even after nineteen years since they first formed, The Bronx is still “as electric and essential as ever.” With eleven songs recorded alongside renowned record producer Joe Baressi (Melvins, Tool, Bad Religion), Bronx VI could quite possibly be the band’s most vulnerable and exposed set of songs to date.
