Weekly Wrap-Up 04.22.22

A few words about a few local tracks that hit the spot this week


Sinia – Missed Exit

Minimalist, free-floating heartache jam that deconstructs R&B’s composite parts and scatters them loosely around a skeletal rhythmic framework. A rumble of bass here, a synth droplet or triangle ping there, serve as landmarks for Sinia to languidly poke around and navigate at her own pace.

Indigo Rae – If I Smoked Cigarettes

A stripped down uke-and-vocals track that coaxes fragile melancholy out of an instrument usually associated with beachy bliss. Indigo Rae, their voice pitched at maximum wistfulness, ponders possibilities (picking up a nicotine habit, letting go of rage, growing their hair out) as they seek to find the point “where the pain stops, and where I begin.”

Memory Front – Leave With Grace

Dark, cavernous electro-rock that distresses its obsidian instrumental polish with an anguished vocal performance that taps into a mineshaft of emotion. The lyrics are cryptic (“You were satin white/With lungs like little cities […] Did you choke on fingers in your starry mouth?”), but the delivery is riveting and raw, to the point where you feel like you’re intruding on something.
