Jerry Paper – Everything Borrowed (STUMBLING)
Featuring the warped synths and smooth grooves that have become his signature sound, “Everything Borrowed” has Jerry Paper cry about the trivial value people place on social order and objects. Despite the dire subject matter, the chill vibes sent through the stumbling beat will keep you moving.

Parcels – Comedown (FUNKY)
Parcels combines both melodic and funky keyboard parts to set a similar mood akin to that of Vulfpeck songs in “Comedown.” They set themselves apart in their vocals, as each band members’ voices blend to create a more electro-pop sound that keeps you wanting more–and they deliver just that on the rest of this album!

Colter Wall – Wild Bill Hickok (COWBOY)
Colter Wall’s new album Songs of the Plains is just that, an album full of country western songs about the Canadian plains. The best song of the lot is Wild Bill Hickok, it tells the life story of folk hero Wild Bill Hickok, the frontiersman, outlaw, union solider, professional poker player and the namesake of the term “dead man’s head.”
