    March 2024 New Music Round-Up: Mannequin Pussy Perfects 90s Alt-Rock, Kacey Musgraves Embraces Jangle, and Bleachers Hit Rock Bottom

    In a big month for country-leaning records (Waxahatchee, Adrianne Lenker, Kacey Musgraves), Mannequin Pussy blow away the cobwebs with a genuine AOTY contender. Meanwhile Jack Antonoff stands out for entirely different reasons - his wretched Bleachers album is one of the biggest flops of the year.

    Yes, Another Teen Movie (Soundtrack)!

    Yes, Another Teen Movie (Soundtrack)!

    Do you remember the '90s, when teen movies featured 30 year old actors pretending to be children, gags about sex crimes, and subplots about romancing your stepbrother? Thankfully one thing has stood the test of time: the killer soundtracks. From Clueless to Cruel Intentions, American Pie to She’s All That, these OSTs were often as good as LPs from the era. On this episode, Gabbie briefly hijacks hosting duties and leads the gang in writing (and starring in?!) a brand new teen movie, inspired by all the old tropes, and complete with a perfect soundtrack of all new '90s-inspired tracks.

    What if Your Neighborhood Bar Played Something Newer Than Don McLean?

As always, we feature only new, mostly small indie artists that we hope are new to you (but sound just close enough to your old favorites to feel familiar).
