Since dropping their debut album No World back in 2013, things have been relatively sparse for Los Angeles brothers inc. outside of a collaboration with FKA twigs in 2014 and song “A Teardrop From Below” released last year. However, things might be changing with the unveiling of the next level song “The Wheel” or at least we can only hope. The song is a tremendous impression of emotional lyric-driven soul laced with guitar work that would make even Prince, D’Angelo, and even Hall & Oates proud. We are anxiously crossing our fingers for a new album from the pair this year.

Stream Miserable’s Striking Debut Album Uncontrollable

“It’s about the apology I deserved but never received. It’s about misunderstandings, frustration, lack of closure. At times I wanted to give up on writing this album. I felt sick, graceless. Finishing it seemed unattainable. I promised myself I would leave the past behind me once it was completed.” – Kristina Esfandiari aka Miserable

Uncontrollable, the beautiful and gut-wrenching debut LP, from Kristina Esfandiari of King Woman and Whirr under her solo moniker Miserable, as it currently stands, will go down high on our favorite albums of 2016. It is impossible to not respond and relate to the raw sadness and pain conveyed in the charring lyrics and disorienting guitar work that blurs from moments of chaos to uneasy stillness each song to the next. While immediate in its connection, the album plays out like a knife slowly being pushed deep into the center of your soul. According to Esfandiari in speaking to Spin, the album’s title and overall feel were a direct reflection of the lack of control she felt at the time of its creation. Out today, you can stream the album in full below and pick up the album through The Native Sound.

Sally Shapiro Share Final Song “If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind”

Often mistaken as a singular project, Sweden’s Sally Shapiro, the partnership of Johan Agebjörn and an anonymous singer who took on the project’s namesake, have recently shared new song “If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind.” The song will serves as the duo’s final song to be released on May 12th via Fika with it also appearing on an upcoming compilation of Sally Shapiro songs from Paper Bag Records. Instead of being the fault of in-fighting, this dissolution is more the result of “musical tastes don’t overlap that much anymore” according to the band. Listen below.
