Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
April 17, 2020
Critic Score

31 reviews

This album is Apple sounding assured with where she’s at in life and wishing the same for anyone holding similarly toxic cards.

Hayley Williams - Petals for Armor
May 8, 2020
Critic Score
79
27 reviews

Though it contains mere hints of the scrappy rocker we’ve watched for 15 years, Petals Of Armor is the bold signature of someone who is more than ready to show off different sides of herself—yet has nothing left to prove to anyone.

Moses Sumney - græ
May 15, 2020
Critic Score
87
25 reviews

Describing its music as ambitious is akin to labeling a stab wound a scrape. If Sumney’s fiery, spiritual 2018 EP Black in Deep Red, 2014 upended fans’ expectations, then Grae is a revelatory shock. Sumney’s music resonates most strongly when—like its lyrics—it destroys pre-established boundaries.

Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher
June 18, 2020
Critic Score
87
39 reviews

Phoebe Bridgers has created a musical monument to our dissociative age with Punisher. It’s an album about sleepless nights and sinking feelings in the pit of your stomach, wrapped in a musical package that’s both feather-light and lush enough to run your fingers through.
