Another month full of musings! From lineup-filled springs to new releases from faves Real Estate and Mac Demarco, and maybe a bit of love in the air, February was chock-full of musical inspiration. Without further ado, here are some of my feb faves:
Mac Demarco – “This Old Dog”
I could listen to this on repeat anytime, anywhere. It’s everything one would expect in a new Mac Demarco track – reserved, composed, and luminous. This track and others will be included in his forthcoming album, which is set to be released on May 5th of Captured Tracks.
Priests – Nothing Feels Natural
I was gifted the discovery of Priests when I was assigned to review their latest album for mxdwn.com, and I was delighted to discover this gem! This is indie rock at its finest. Check out my album review of Priests – Nothing Feels Natural here. My fave would have to be the title track.
You can also catch their upcoming show at the Echoplex on February 20!
