Adrianne Lenker & Buck Meek - a-sides
87
A sweet collection of chilly guitar tunes

Favorite Track: Money

Ethel Cain - Inbred
66
While still sporting Ethel’s stellar vocals and lyrics, the production on this record for the most part detracts from the experience rather than adding to it. It’s not unlistenable, but I can’t say most of the tracks had me spellbound.

Highlights:
Crush
Inbred
Two-Headed Mother

Lowlights:
God’s Country
Unpunishable

Ethel Cain - Golden Age
70
While still going strong in the vocal and lyrical department, the awkward trap beats and echoey instruments utilized on Golden Age detract from the otherwise dark and dreamy experience. Very listenable, but not as compelling as Carpet Bed in my opinion.

Highlights:
Sunday Morning
Head in the Wall

Lowlights:
Casings

Bonus Cover Review:
It’s giving Southern Living but no harm done lol.

Ethel Cain - Carpet Bed EP
80
While not as polished as her later work, Carpet Bed is still a hauntingly beautiful EP. Its echoey vocals and lyrics that bring to mind a weathered church pew mark the project as still completely covered in Ethel’s signature style, even years before her most iconic record.

Highlights:
Dog Days
Misuse Oh

Bonus Cover Review:
Reminds me of early Big Thief covers.

beabadoobee - Lice
73
Honestly, a lot better than I thought it’d be. It’s pretty simplistic, but it’s carried by Bea’s vocals and some nice use of reverb. Some of the lyrics are a little childish, but that makes sense for when it was written. An enjoyable EP. I just wish it wasn’t called Lice.

Highlights:
Home Alone
Bobby

Lowlights:
Angry Song

Bonus Cover Review:
Look! The Bees!
