Rid Of Me – “Myself”

After releasing their debut EP in the spring of last year, the Philadelphia group has announced their first full-length album, Traveling, which will be out in December. Lead single “Myself” is a rousing upward swirl of noisy chaos, with Itarya Rosenberg providing the ominous intonations at the song’s center: “And I will stop breathing/ Will lose all control for a clung ego.”

Barrie – “Dig”

Barrie, the musical project of Barrie Lindsay, has always specialized in crisp metropolitan indie-pop. Both on stage and on record, the band has carved out a distinct stylistic identity, one adjacent to the likes of Yumi Zouma and Alvvays, like a dreamier spin on Fleetwood Mac. On her new single, she tweaks that identity somewhat.

Album Of The Week: Injury Reserve By The Time I Get To Phoenix

Two and a half years ago, during the last proper South By Southwest before the pandemic, I sat down with the Phoenix-based rap group Injury Reserve at a Mexican restaurant in East Austin. The trio explained that their unconventional approach to music had evolved from unconventional circumstances. In the early 2010s, in the middle of the hip-hop desert that is Arizona, a tall and charismatic high school basketball player started rapping over beats by a redhead swimmer from a rival school.

Lil Ugly Mane – “Porcelain Slightly” & “Into A Life”

For years, the Richmond artist Lil Ugly Mane made murky, lo-fi rap music that was generally impossible to categorize. Then, he mostly stopped. Now, he might be starting again. Earlier this summer, Lil Ugly Mane came out with two new songs, “Headboard” and “Here I Am,” that served as his first new music in a couple of years. (One of the songs had quietly existed on YouTube for a couple of months, but it wouldn’t be a Lil Ugly Mane release if it didn’t come out in a vague and shambolic fashion.) T...
