ALBUM OF THE WEEK : TORRES - SPRINTER

ARTIST : TORRES
ALBUM : SPRINTER
LABEL : PARTISAN RECORDS

This week sees the release of 'Sprinter', the 2nd album from Brooklyn's Torres (aka Mackenzie Scott). We rated her first album so much that we made it our top album of 2013, so we're expecting big things from this new record which is released through Partisan Records.

Has she delivered? Of course she has! The new album is bolder, louder, and delivered with such a confidence that belies her 23 years of age. Testament to her clear talents is that 'Sprinter' was recorded over this side of the pond at Portishead's Adrian Utley's studio in Bristol. That's a pretty big deal.

There's 9 tracks coming in at over 45 minutes so that gives you an indication that the songs have time and space to breath and envelope you, with much to be had on repeated listens. The album is heavy and tender in equal measure, basically Torres has yet again wowed us!

ALBUM OF THE WEEK : WATERS - WHAT'S REAL

ARTIST : WATERS
ALBUM : WHAT'S REAL

Van Pierszalowski and his WATERS band are back with their 2nd full length album following 2011's 'Out In The Light', it's titled 'What's Real' and available right now through Vagrant Records. The new record has a slightly more pop orientated edge but the guitars are still there, and there's reward to be had on multiple listens for sure. It's feel good tunes for those moments when a pick me up is needed! // WATERS
