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

Album of the Week: Soccer Mommy, 'Color Theory'

'Color Theory' is a wide, uncanny valley of sound: an array of riffs, beats, melodies, and vibes that are deeply reminiscent of something you feel like you've heard before, but can't quite place.

Album of the Week: U.S. Girls, 'Heavy Light'

Born in the Midwest and now based in Toronto, Canada, Meg Remy founded U.S. Girls and released her debut back in 2008. Since then, she has taken a rotating cast of musicians from making DIY recordings to creating lush studio albums ranging from experimental pop to new wave.

Album of the Week: Drive-By Truckers, 'The Unraveling'

Three and a half years since their last album, Drive-By Truckers have returned from their longest break yet. The band that recorded the anthem "Hell No I Ain't Happy," still isn't. On their latest record, the band has become a vital mouthpiece in this complicated world.

Album of the Week: Polica, 'When We Stay Alive'

When We Stay Alive is an album about navigating a period of pain and loss, and about changing our relationship to our trauma. Channy writes beautifully about these topics, taking the listener along for the ride as she finds herself again and reconnects with her band.
