Last week, we caught Albert Hammond Jr play a series of shows along the east coast in support of his new album ‘Francis Trouble’. Our favorite took place in an intimate Pennsylvanian church basement — and we had the pleasure of capturing it on film.
Just a few days after the spring equinox, MGMT returned home to Brooklyn to play three sold-out shows in support of their latest studio album ‘Little Dark Age’. We were there all three nights to shoot the show on film and hear the new record in action.
This week, we can’t stop spinning ‘One Stone’, the latest folk self-release from drag queen Trixie Mattel. As the follow-up to her first album ‘Two Birds’ (amazing, right?), she creates a 22-minute world of her own where acoustic guitars and autoharps exist in perfect harmony with drag culture. We know that once you enter her world, you’ll want to stay.
On rotation this week is Agar Agar, the electronic duo from Paris who are bringing back elegance, defiance and slow-burning synth to the French music scene.
This week we’re listening to ‘Francis Trouble,’ the dynamic and oftentimes devastating new album from Albert Hammond Jr. ‘Francis Trouble’ navigates the difficult journey to the crux of one man’s psyche – and reveals harrowing truths about our own vulnerabilities in the process.
