TORRES on “Silver Tongue”

Feb 13, 2020 Web Exclusive

In April of 2018, Mackenzie Scott, aka TORRES, was unceremoniously dropped from her record label, 4AD. Evidently, her third album, the experimental, gender-bending tour de force, Three Futures, did not sell to expectation. But as is said, when one door closes, another one opens. And so is the case for Scott, who after a brief time questioning her future path and choice of profession, rebounded, signing with artist-friendly Merge Records and releasing her stunning new album, Silver Tongue.

My Favorite Album: Tracyanne Campbell of Camera Obscura on Kacey Musgraves’ “Golden Hour”

Feb 07, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

Kacey Musgraves' previous records are a bit sweeter. I don't want to call Golden Hour raw, but it kind of is compared to her earlier albums. It's a bit more bare, a bit more real. To me, she writes really classic '60s pop songs, so strong, so powerful.  More

My Favorite Album: Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips on The Beatles’ “The White Album”

Feb 05, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney
