This Week’s Music is a weekly column that discusses the weeks’ best, worst, and most interesting songs. We try to select songs of different artists and genres to keep things interesting and to please a variety of music fans.
This week Angel Olsen gifts us with a new music video, Brittany Howard releases her much awaited solo debut and Caroline Polachek has a new song. Check them out.
Angel Olsen – Lark
“Lark” is a song that starts off slow and quietly, building up to a grand and sweeping chorus, perfectly reflected in the music video with aerial shots that zoom in and out of Olsen running through gorgeous landscapes. It’s a song that’s not as strange and alien as her last single, “All Mirrors,” but that keeps Angel Olsen’s trademark eeriness and ambition.
Brittany Howard – Georgia
Known for her explosive vocals on the Grammy award winning band Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard surprised everyone when she decided to separate from the band and to work on her solo music. The result, an 11 track record called “Jaime,” is personal and different, something that the singer could have only achieved when stepping away from the projects and bands she’s best known for. “Jaime” is one of the best and most distinct records of the year, with “Georgia” being one of its stand out songs.
Caroline Polachek – So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings
“So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings” is amazing on name alone. Add in some great lyrics, airy vocals and a breezy and inventive melody and you have one of the weirdest and funnest pop songs of the year. Caroline Polachek’s new album is called “Pang” and it’s set for release this October 18th.
