Mountain Goats - Goths (Merge)

From Peter Hughes of the Mountain Goats: The theme this time around is goth, a subject closer to my heart perhaps than that of any previous MG album. And while John writes the songs, it feels more than ever like he's speaking for all of us in the band, erstwhile goths (raises hand) or otherwise, for these are songs that approach an identity most often associated with youth from a perspective that is inescapably adult.

Endless Boogie - Vibe Killer (No Quarter)

"Endless Boogie is the band you always wanted to hear. The first time I saw them play all these thoughts shot through my head at the same time: "OK that guitar player looks wilder than anyone I've ever seen/That is the rudest riff I've ever heard/Why didn't I think of that riff/I would never dare think of that riff/ I could watch guy play that lead forever/Chuck Berry and John Coltrane/That beat is perfect NEU!/ Am I really hearing and seeing this??/Are they really doing this??" - for like an hour, and it was one song." - Matt Sweeney

Pokey LaFarge - Manic Revelations (Rounder)

Pokey tries to make sense of trouble he's seen and trouble he's been in. This is the Great Why of his unending passion for songwriting. Each chord, each riff shades the stories he sets up in his lyrics, always in search of the purest truth within the forlorn, haunting melodies on Manic Revelations. A musician, a storyteller, a narrator of the messy, unkempt American experience.

Wavves - You're Welcome (Ghost Ramp)

From the first guitar lick, high-adrenaline opener "Daisy" is infectiously catchy. Succeeding tracks "You're Welcome" and "No Shade" do an equally bang-up job of both resembling and one-upping the grunge worshiping noise pop that's defined Wavves so far. Some of the best songs Williams has ever penned, but some of the freshest, most inventive tunes the genre has heard in years. Wavves' sixth studio album proves that nearly ten years in, these Californian surf rockers are far from washed up.

Alex G - Rocket (Domino)

Amid recording, Alex made headlines for catching the attention of Frank Ocean; playing guitar on his two 2016 albums, Endless and Blonde. More than stylistic cues, what Alex took from the experience was a confidence in collaboration. Rocket wears this collaborative spirit proudly, and in its numerous contributors presents a restless sense of musical experimentation, effortlessly jumping from sound collage to dreamy folk to bouncing Americana.

Jlin - Black Origami (Planet Mu)

A percussion-led tour de force, it's a creation that seals her reputation as a unique producer with an exceptional ability to make riveting rhythmic music. Black Origami comes from letting go creatively, creating with no boundaries. The simple definition of origami is the art of folding and constructing paper into a beautiful, yet complex design. Composing music for me is like origami, only I'm replacing paper with sound. Similar time shifting/folding/disrupting effects can be heard throughout the record especially on Holy Child an unlikely collaboration with minimalist legend William Basinski.

Do Make Say Think - Stubborn Persistent Illusions (Constellation)

DMST has been widely celebrated as one of the preeminent instrumental rock bands. The band has been acclaimed as "arguably the finest catalogue of any currently operating instrumental rock band" (Drowned In Sound), and creating "some of the most honest, unpretentious, group-oriented rock of their time" (Popmatters). Among the band's strengths is an ineffable naturalism that avoids anything too woolly, proggy, purist or cliched.

Daniel Romano - Modern Pressure (New West)

A genre-defying student of musical experimentation and multi-instrumentalist, Romano is acutely well versed in the languages of melody, shape, lyric construction and song arrangement. Written in observational scrutiny beneath the overcast atmosphere of 2016, the record vigorously tackles the present-day heaviness we contain in the jotting bones of our guilty expressions. It pleads for the restoration of empathy and resonance, to fill the empty chamber once again.

Nick Hakim - Green Twins (ATO)

Nick is a DC-raised and NYC-based performer whose music experiments with soul, psychedelia, and R&B. He cites artists as diverse as Marvin Gaye, Portishead, Shuggie Otis, Bilal, and My Bloody Valentine as influences. His debut album is a lush, ambitiously expansive project recorded over the last three years. Its production layers analog demos with more polished studio recordings, and it features NYC jazz experimentalists Onyx Collective and Jesse & Forever, artists Nick frequently performs with in the close-knit Brooklyn DIY circuit.

Jade Jackson - Gilded (Anti)

Jade creates a sound that is simultaneously new and old, merging a youthful spiritedness with a weary storyteller's perspective usually reserved for veteran artists. Stylistically the sound is unapologetically country rock. It merges the heartbreak and resilience of Lucinda Williams with the melodic confidence of Emmylou Harris. Jackson began playing guitar and writing songs at 13. By the time she had graduated high school she had written over 300 songs. Produced by Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness.

Land of Talk - Life After Youth (Saddle Creek)

Frontwoman Elizabeth Powell started writing songs without her trusty guitar, instead building tracks up from synth beds and programmed loops. Even the songs built atop more traditional rock foundations exist in that liminal space between dreaming and waking life, confidence and doubt, raw feelings and soothing sounds. Her old friend Sharon Van Etten lent her songwriting smarts and heavenly harmonies. Former Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Roxy Music/Sparks bassist Sal Maida played on the album as well.

She-Devils - s/t (Secretly Canadian)

If She-Devils is an art project, then Audrey Ann Boucher and Kyle Jukka's hauntingly brilliant debut is a bright, impressionist painting. Swapping oils and brushes for primitive gear and heart-swelling vocals, the album constructs a bleary-eyed world of beautiful chaos, one driven by Dee-Lite-meets-Suicide sonics, and the romantic longing of 60s girl groups.
