Alex G: God Save the Animals [Domino]

Alex G’s new album was written at home and recorded at various studios across Philadelphia. “I would just call different studios the day of and see which one was available,” he told Pitchfork. In the build-up to the release, he’s shared the singles “Runner,” “Cross the Sea,” and “Miracles”—a largely acoustic standout with lyrics about God, drugs, and the future.

Beth Orton: Weather Alive [Partisan]

More than 25 years since her breakthrough album Trailer Park, Beth Orton continues to defy expectations. Her first album in six years, Weather Alive, also has the distinction of being her first as a lead producer. The album—featuring singles “Forever Young,” “Friday Night,” “Fractals,” and “Weather Alive”—was written after Orton left Los Angeles for London, and documents the challenges of motherhood and her search for inspiration after years spent away from the music industry. Read Pitchfork’s recent interview “Beth Orton on the Music That Made Her.”
