Every Friday, at The Soundx we will pick some new releases, based on quality or importance, which ones you should listen to throughout the week. This week we have releases from Taylor Swift, BROCKHAMPTON, SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE, and Matthew E. White & Lonnie Holley.
Taylor Swift – Fearless (Taylor’s Version)
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is Taylor Swift’s first re-recorded album. In 2019, after problems with her previous record label, Swift said that she would re-record her first six albums so she could have their rights. The historic 2008’s Fearless was chosen to be the first, featuring 19 songs from the original platinum version, with the addition of a single that Swift recorded for the movie Valentine Day and six more unreleased tracks.
BROCKHAMPTON – ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE
After a series of live streams where the hip hop group revealed unpublished music, Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine is released, with executive production by Romil Hemnani and Kevin Abstract. Being announced as the first of two albums of 2021, which will be the last of the group, Roadrunner has extremely personal lyrics and, again, complex sounds.
SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE – ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH
The fourth album of the American group formed by Zack Schwartz, Rivka Ravede, and Corey Wichlin shows the artists in front of a psychedelic sound, weaving lyrics with striking creativity. Released by Saddle Creek, ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH features 11 new songs, including the singles “I SUCK THE DEVIL’S COCK” and “THE SERVER IS IMMERSED”
Matthew E. White & Lonnie Holley – Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection
Matthew E. White and Lonnie Holley’s first collaborative album, Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection, is released by Spacebomb and Jagjaguwar. In the project, both artists aim to exchange experiences on differences and equality between gender, age, energy, and spirituality.
