These days, every artists album needs to have a story. The music cant speak for itself.

But after 22 records, why cant Ani DiFrancos work speak for itself? Yes, her forthcoming album is shaped by stories ones about reproductive freedom, the double-edged sword of the pandemic, identity and ever-evolving belief systems that have shaped each of its 11 songs. It was paramount to the folk-feminist hero that listeners not be saddled with preconceived notions while diving into her 23rd album Unprecedented Sh!t. I believe there is a rhyme and a reason as to why these songs have come together in this way now and I want people to experience this album as a journey, a piece of art, without being influenced by a cacophony of surrounding narratives.

While many of DiFrancos albums were made more insularly, shes opened herself up to collaboration in recent years. For 21 of DiFrancos 22 albums, she opted to self-produce. With Unprecedented Sh!t, she wanted to try working with a producer and tapped BJ Burton, who produced one of her favorite albums, Bon Ivers 22, A Million.

The title Unprecedented Sh!t is not only representative of how much of a sonic departure the 11-track album is from Anis other work, but also a political and social commentary on the current state of the world. We find ourselves in unprecedented times in many ways, faced with unprecedented challenges. So, our responses to them and our discourse around them, need to rise to that level.

ARTIST QUOTE:I learned the traditional song Going to Georgia from a few different places so my version is something of a collage. There are a number of variants out there. Ralph Stanley played a version of it, as did the great song collector and revivalist/interpreter Paul Clayton. My main source was an early 1980s field recording of The Eller Family of Hiawassee, Georgia, brought to us by artist-documentarians Art and Margo Rosenbaum via their wonderful Folkways anthology Folk Visions & Voices: Traditional Music and Song in Northern Georgia.

The color green can represent many things. It can symbolize money, of course, but also weed. And envy. It implies newness, the rebirth of spring, but it can also evoke illness and infection. Its an apt name for a band that is defined by its adaptability, by its knack for doing many different things all at once. On the Color Greens second full-lengththeir first as a quartetthey ground their cosmic jams in earthy melodies, drawing from 60s SoCal folk-r0ck, 70s classic rock, 80s underground rock, 90s psychedelic dance-rock, and many other sources. In the two years the band has been touring, it has already shared stages with a range of groups that reflect both the sophistication and the wild malleability of their sound, including Fuzz, Kikagaku Moyo, Circles Around the Sun, and Young Guv. When we play live, I dont really know whats going to happen, says guitarist Noah Kohll. You really have no idea what youre going to get with this band, which keeps things fresh for us and maybe makes the live experience special. Adds drummer Corey Rose, One thing about this band that I really appreciate is that we can camouflage into any environment or any show. We can play with Hiss Golden Messenger and lean into that funky country vibe, or we can play with the Brian Jonestown Massacre and get evil. We all love a variety of music, so lets not put ourselves in a box. That wild, mercurial quality is reflected on Fools Parade, a meditation on loss, grief, confusion, frustration, and the clarity to which they all lead. Their songs are vehicles for self-explorations, not just a means of putting their feelings into lyrics and notes but molding them, night after night, into different shapes to get different insights. I feel like thats the endless spiritual journey of this band, says Madden. Theres always this thing that is mysterious, that you can never put your finger on. Music is a way to give yourself ground within the unknown. Its a way to convene with something outside yourself, whether you call that the muse or God or the collective unconsciousness or whatever. Maybe thats relatable to people because we live in a very noisy and confusing world. Everybodys trying to find that ground.

Country music's Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen are back with more tunes, announcing that their EP Hold My Beer Vol. 4 will arrive on July 12. The latest entry to their Hold My Beer canon, Vol. 4 contains six songs exploring love, nostalgia, life on the road and, of course, drinking. Following the release, the two friends will hit the road on the HOLD MY BEER TOUR beginning in July. And the guys will be offering Vol. 3 and Vol. 4 combined on a limited edition LP and CD. Both veterans of the Country music scene, Rogers and Bowen decided to team up in a professional capacity in 2015 when they released Hold My Beer, Vol. 1. Their newest project, much like the first EP and 2020's Vol. 2, is a collection of twang-heavy tracks made for drinking, dancing and reminiscing, with Rogers and Bowen trading off as they sing over steel guitars and fiddles. "Hold my Beer Vol. 4 is finally here," Rogers shares. "I absolutely love making these records with Wade and am so proud of these songs — we wrote every single one. Listen responsibly. Cheers!" "If you don’t have fun listening to these songs, I feel sorry for ya," Bowen adds. "No reason we should have this much fun 'working!' I hope you love these songs as much as we love making them. Grab some friends and drink a few for us! Cheers!" Rogers and Bowen's Hold My Beer projects are the culmination of over two decades of friendship, the initial collaboration an unplanned happenstance that has since blossomed into a thriving outlet of artistic expression that "offers up a lightheartedness — a departure from their more heartache-ridden solo work — and the fine art of breaking open a cold one with buddies," as declared by American Songwriter. With Hold My Beer Vol. 4 and their HOLD MY BEER TOUR Rogers and Bowen will only continue their "pitcher perfect" partnership.

Dip

Love Direction

Vinyl: $29.98 Buy

The DIP is a Seattle-based Rhythm and Blues band that is known for it's poignant songwriting, detailed arrangements, and vintage sound. Featuring a three-piece horn section, the group's music harkens back to earlier soul and funk influences while hinting at the jazz foundations that brought the band's members together. Love Direction, the follow-up to 2022's Sticking With It (which landed at #1 on the Billboard Current R&B Albums Chart) is the band's fourth full-length studio album. Despite the title, this latest record isn't a collection of straightforward love songs, but an investigation into the different angles and challenges that relationships can bring. Expanding on the album's theme, Eddy notes "These aren't 'Love Songs' in the most obvious sense. They deal with the middle stages, the hinterlands of love and life together - figuring someone out and what they need, learning how to communicate, and examining your own faults. We set out to write music that felt more grown, a little wiser. The songs that emerged all pointed in the Love Direction.

Cassandra Jenkins is quite simply one of the best songwriter-storytellerscurrently making music. Hers is a specific and singular corner of the Great AmericanSongwriters, artists like David Berman, Adrianne Lenker, Jeff Tweedy and Sufjan Stevens.They're artists connected by a sense of immediacy, not just in the writing - which is precise,evocative, brutal at times, pitch-back funny right when you need it - but by their delivery, bythe way they sing with an immersive, total belief that carries you through their songs. Theseare the artists and songs that sneak up and really live with us forever, and on My Light, MyDestroyer, Jenkins joins their ranks.What's most remarkable about My Light, My Destroyer is it captures anartist at an exciting leap in her evolution. So much about the album feels of-a-kind with it'spredecessors; field recordings and found sound permeate, narrative songwriting crashesinto heady, swirling compositions. Jenkins sings with what can only be described as a powerwhisper (think Sufjan Stevens, Annie Lennox, Margo Timmins or YHF-era Tweedy), hervocals up close and intimate but subtly confrontational. But it all feels bigger here, morefinely honed, bolder and richer than her previous work and than her peers.Born and raised in New York City, Jenkins has been touring and performingsince she was a child, self-releasing her early recordings before releasing breakthrough AnOverview on Phenomenal Nature in 2021. On My Light, My Destroyer, many of the songs aredevoted to specific feelings, and to really getting inside those feelings as opposed to gettinginside a narrative arc. Lead single "Only one" is one example, as Jenkins's asserts that amoment, or a song, can be wholly myopic; it can embody a singular feeling, and provides noanswers.Songs like Devotion, Delphinium Blue, Clams Casino, Echo, and Only One,speak to the liberating quality of focused observation, even to the point of disillusionment."There's this idea about disillusionment that I've held onto," she says. "I really appreciatedisillusionment as a process to discover new, unexpected outcomes. We let go of expectationsthis way. Expectations hold us back. It's easy to focus on jadedness or disappointment but Iactually see it more as freedom."

Odie Leigh

Carrier Pigeon [TANGERINE VINYL]

Vinyl: $31.98 UNAVAILABLE

Odie Leigh would never have called herself a musician before the depths of the 2020 pandemic, when her rapper roomies made a bet: Whoever records a song that goes viral first, wins. Slightly ticked off that they hadnt included her in the wager, she decided to hit them with her best shot, and Odie was crowned the victor when a track she wrote blew up on TikTok. I was like, I'm gonna show y'all. I'm gonna win, she recalls, laughing. Then I woke up to a bunch of comments on TikTok being like, Oh my God, release this. This is amazing! Now, Im a musician.

Four years after posting what she calls that silly joke song on TikTok, Odie Leigh has continued to transform and evolve as an artist from what she calls acoustic, ethereal folk sad girl music to a harder-edge tunes that flirt with early Aughts pop-punktivism. That trajectory culminates in her first LP, Carrier Pigeon. All the music I've released up until this point can kind of be thrown into the indie folk acoustic genre, Odie says. But I never set out to make Americana music. I never set out to make folk music. I'm just a girl with an acoustic guitar.

Megan Moroney - Am I Okay? - Vinyl

Am I Okay? is the massively anticipated sophomore album from breakout Country superstar Megan Moroney, and is an up-close look at the life-changing pain of heartbreak and the glory of moving on. As she doubles down on the gorgeously detailed storytelling of her blockbuster full-length debut Lucky, the Georgia-bred singer/songwriter lights up every track with her signature balance of raw emotional honesty and warmhearted sensitivity-as well as the endless supply of down-to-earth charm that's made her one of Country music's most dynamic new stars.

A truly gifted songwriter, Moroney also brings a tremendous depth to Am I Okay?'s more fun-loving moments, such as "Indifferent": a wildly euphoric track that weaves whistled melodies and pounding drumbeats through her full-tilt celebration of breaking free from infatuation with an old love. The album leaves the listener both undeniably dazzled and more deeply connected to the full expanse of their own emotional life.

Am I Okay?'s finespun songwriting and high-powered sound is achieved with the help of Moroney's longtime producer Kristian Bush (Sugarland).

On sophomore album Love Out of Lemons, revered Nashville troubadour Bones Owens continues to evolve his cultured rock songwriting while capturing the energy of his renowned live shows. Released on July 12 by Black Ranch Records, Love Out of Lemons collects deeply grooving snapshots of carefree times and top-down drives with subtleties that linger long after the partys over.
This record sort of picks up where my debut full-length left off, offered Owens from yet another hotel room on yet another tour. Energetic rock very typical of my live show. Raised on country, gospel, and bluesy classic rock in rural Missouri, Owens took up guitar at age 10 and within three years was writing his own songs. At 21, he landed a publishing deal and relocated to Nashville, where he was soon a sought-after session and touring guitarist for a diverse array of artists from Yelawolf and Mikky Ekko to Carrie Underwood and Bon Jovi. Owens also co-wrote most of Yelawolfs Trial by Fire album. An old soul with a poets way with words, Owens early self-released solo EPs attracted the attention of Thirty Tigers (The White Buffalo, Smashing Pumpkins etc.), who released his eponymous debut album in 2021 and the more introspective, Americana-tinted Eighteen heeler EP two years later. Like Eighteen Wheeler, Love Out of Lemons was produced by Paul Moak at his Smoakstack studio in Nashville. But while the EP was something of an introspective departure for Owens, Love Out of Lemons is a blithe dive into his eclectic, nuanced rock and alt-roots sensibilities, from the genre-fluid grooves of heyday War to the lean bluesy influence of Creedence Clearwater Revival. I wanted to do another record that was largely rock, but also for it to have more than one gear, said Owens. Love Out of Lemons features co-writes with Henry Brill (Phantogram, Jack Garratt) on Born
Again and Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges, White Denim) on Higher Than I Wanna Be. Drums throughout were played by Julian Dorio (The Whigs, Eagles of Death Metal), with all other instruments handled by Owens and producer Moak. The albums intentions are clear from the first bars of the opening title track; an irresistibly head-bobbing, outdoorsy strut that explores relationships from which love will never bloom, no matter how hard one or both parties try. I was thinking of Eric Burdon or War as kind of the starting point for that song, Owens recalled. Summer Skin epitomizes Love Out of Lemons mellower sonic subplots, tapping into a
carefree era of Owens life largely spent riding motorcycles and hanging out with friends, drink in hand. With additional arrangement and instruments by L.A.-based singer- songwriter/producer Josh Ostrander (Mondo Cozmo, Eastern Conference Champions), its organic, breezy verses are punctuated with an epic cascade of a chorus rich in twinkling, sepia toned nostalgia. The tambourine-flecked AC/DC strut of Get In On is a neon washed, two-and-a-half-minute
dive bar anthem, its universally relatable refrain elevated with ecstatic organ and Owens soaring vocal. Ive waited all day long / To get it / To get it / To get it on, implores its insistent, made-for-the-stage chorus. As well as his ongoing touring, Owens will be making a solo trek around the Midwest on his Harley Davidson to coincide with the release of Love Out of Lemons. Ill just have a guitar strapped on the back to do some intimate shows and radio spots, he explained. As well as checking in on friends and family along the way. Originally planned for the previous November, the trip was postponed after Owens struck a deer on his motorcycle the day before he was due to leave. Tying-in with Love Out of Lemons standout Goin Back Where I Came From, the route will include Owens native Missouri, as
well as Harley Davidsons Milwaukee headquarters. I think its perfect that the record is coming out in the summer, he concluded before heading out to the nights soundcheck. Because it very much feels like a sunny day, drivin-down-the-road soundtrack to me.
