Soccer Mommy’s Sophie Allison has made a name for herself with her earnest brand of lovelorn, reverb-soaked bedroom pop. After years of releasing homemade recordings and demos on bandcamp, Soccer Mommy’s first studio album, Clean, debuted on Fat Possum Records in 2018 to receive critical acclaim. Soccer Mommy’s newest release Blossom (Demo)/Be Seeing You, recorded in the basement of Allison’s college dorm, is a short-but-sweet glimpse into the artist’s roots. Soccer Mommy sold out their February 8th show at Mohawk, but if you didn’t score tickets you can still hear live tracks from their Studio 1A session in the player below.

Austin-based psych-pop outfit The Bright Light Social Hour may seem lighthearted and playful when they describe themselves as “four noise bois, who make noise and they’re bois.” However, their newest album, Jude Vol. 1, deals with heavy themes of love, loss, and grieving. The album was written and recorded following the death of the band’s tour manager Alex O’Brien, brother to the band’s bassist Jackie. Produced by Chris Coady at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, Jude Vol. 1 is a diverse group of tracks that deal indirectly with the band’s loss, drawing influence from disco with space-age synths and veering more psychedelic at times with reverb-laden guitars.

Listen to live tracks from Jude Vol. 1, out now on Modern Outsider Records, in the player below.

Texas native A. Sinclair melds together jangly, jitter-rock fuzz with strict percussion and sincere lyricism. Combining elements reminiscent of garage rock and grunge, Sinclair’s scuzzy guitars and urgent vocals deliver a decidedly contemporary sound. An Austin local, Sinclair’s new album Catpaws drops February 1st on Nine Mile Records. Catch A. Sinclair’s album release show on February 2nd at Mohawk, alongside Good Field, El Lago, and Daphne Tunes.
