Music and album reviews from the staff of 89.3 The Current.

Album of the Week: Jack White, 'Boarding House Reach'


Jack White, 'Boarding House Reach'

Jack White's third solo album is a bewildering mix of sounds and lyrics accompanied by wonderful instrumental detours. It holds true to what you expect from White but contains countless surprises throughout the 13 songs.

Album of the Week: CHVRCHES, 'Love Is Dead'


CHVRCHES, 'Love Is Dead'

'Love Is Dead' displays many of the attributes that made CHVRCHES a compelling act from the start, it'll be an instant favorite for anyone who enjoys a well-crafted and engaging release.

Album of the Week: Dessa, 'Chime'


Dessa, 'Chime'

'Chime' is a huge leap forward for Dessa. It's her most musically adventurous collection to date, combining the experimental pop approach of her solo work with the more aggressive, hard-edged delivery of her verses with the rap collective Doomtree to create a playing field where both string sections and trap beats can roam freely.

Album of the Week: Ty Segall, 'Freedom's Goblin'


Ty Segall, 'Freedom's Goblin'

Mac Wilson describes Ty Segall's latest as 'a kaleidoscopic journey through the mind of one of contemporary music's most prolific creators.' Read Mac's full review and listen to tracks from 'Freedom's Goblin,' our Album of the Week.
