Improv-rock group Umphrey's McGee have always had an uncanny ability to melt down any genre of music, blend the molten styles, and hammer forge a new sound for each new song they write. While writing and recording their newest single, “Suxity,” the ingredients were—in guitarist and co-writer Jake Cinninger's words—part Sly Stone, part Alice In Chains. Premiered yesterday via American Songwriter, “Suxity” was the first song Umphrey's recorded during their sessions with producer Ryan Hewitt (The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Lumineers) at Nashville's famed Blackbird Studio.

In 2019, Brooklyn indie-punk/grunge darlings Pom Pom Squad released their emotionally charged sophomore EP Ow, and today they're sharing their dynamic take on FKA twigs' “Cellophane.” Of the cover, frontwoman Mia Berrin says, “I know I'm not alone in saying that 'Cellophane' was one of my absolute favorite songs of last year... I've been a fan of twigs since I was in high school and heard 'Hide' off of EP1. She was one of the first artists that made me seen as a woman of color occupying an alternative space, and I could immediately hear myself in the sweeping ebbs and flows of this song.”

Today Soccer Mommy—twenty-two year-old Sophie Allison—announces her triumphant sophomore album, color theory. Confronting the ongoing mental health and familial trials that have plagued Allison since pre-pubescence, color theory explores three central themes: blue, representing sadness and depression; yellow, symbolizing physical and emotional illness; and, finally, gray, representing darkness, emptiness and loss. Written mostly while on tour and recorded in Allison's hometown of Nashville at Alex The Great, color theory was produced by Gabe Wax (who also produced Clean), mixed by Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta, HEALTH, St. Vincent), and features the live Soccer Mommy band on studio recording for the first time, with a live take at the foundation of almost every track. The resulting album is a masterpiece that paints an uncompromisingly honest self-portrait of an artist who, according to 100+ publications, already released one of the Best Albums of 2018 and the 2010s, and is about to release an early favorite of 2020.
