WILLOW’s is one of the best albums out Oct. 7.
WILLOW‘s first single, “Whip My Hair,” came out just shy of the singer’s 10th birthday. Now 21, she’s returned with her fifth full-length album, titled <COPINGMECHANISM>. The record has big arena-rock vibes to go with its spiky pop-punk songcraft, and it effectively captures WILLOW’s gift for conveying deeply felt emotions and the thrum of anxiety.
We’ve also got new albums from genre-smashing singer, rapper and multi-instrumentalist NNAMDÏ, arty rapper Open Mike Eagle, dance-music producer TSHA and the venerated space-jazz ensemble Sun Ra Arkestra. On this week’s New Music Friday, NPR Music contributor Christina Lee, Radio Milwaukee’s Tarik Moody and WXPN’s John Morrison join guest host Stephen Thompson.
