Album: Cardinal – Pinegrove – (2016) Indie/Alternative Country

Cardinal, the second studio album from Pinegrove, delivers on many different levels. This native New Jersey band infuses angsty indie lyricism with alternative country-type instrumentation that really churns up the emotions. If one is looking to fall back into high school nostalgia to get through a hard time, look no further. The song “Aphasia” in particular will leave anyone speechless.

Album: The Colour in Anything – James Blake – (2016) Rock/Electro/Alternative

James Blake hardly fails to disappoint when looking for a song to cry to. This album really pulls on the heartstrings with its experimental soul sound and impassioned lyrics. The collaboration with Bon Iver, “I Need a Forest Fire,” is poetry meant to be sung and will make even the most heartless folk feel emotions they didn’t know they had.
