This is one of the two great music release seasons of the year. The back-to-school months of September and October tend to attract some of the most high profile releases, but late spring is a close second because so many artists want to have their music be reasonably fresh for the touring season. The previews start coming out in late March and April and the full releases tend to drop close to May. So I am just awash with new music to listen to, which makes me happy.
I heard about Wilder Woods years ago, and now he's got a full length release that I'm pretty excited about. SG Goodman is another artist I've written about previously, but I only just discovered that her latest release is very impressive. So "Teeth Marks" is not new, per se, but new to me. SG Goodman just has one of those voices that you never forget, and coupled with her amazing and unique sensibility for songwriting, she's really in a class all her own. And then, of course, there is boygenius, and The Lone Bellow, Jacob Humber, and The Ruralists. It's a long list this month. What a time to be alive. I've said it before and I'll say it again: if anyone ever tells you that there is no more good new music, just give 'em a little slap and send them over to CHILLFILTR Radio. That should set them straight. We've had to make some technological adjustments over the last few weeks—we've moved the image transformations from Imgix over to Amazon 'Sharp', we've done a lot of work cleaning up our RSS feeds so that we can start auto-populating against Apple News again; but all of that should really be invisible to you, the end-user, so really, I shouldn't even have brought it up. :)
Here's a breakdown of the new pieces that were written this month, followed by a list of new songs below. As always, thanks for visiting chillfiltr.com, and thank you for supporting independent media.
