Clairo: Sling [Fader Label/Republic]

Sling, the second full-length from Clairo, was recorded at a moment when the young singer-songwriter was unsure if she wanted to continue pursuing music at all. Produced by Clairo and Jack Antonoff and recorded in a remote studio in upstate New York, the new LP takes sonic inspiration from those woodland surroundings. Across Sling, whose “Blouse” features background vocals from Lorde, Clairo describes depression and being a young woman navigating the music industry.

Willow: Lately I Feel Everything [Msfts Music/Roc Nation]

On her fourth studio album, Lately I Feel Everything, Willow Smith embraces the pop-punk and emo revival wholeheartedly. The 20-year-old cites acts from her childhood, like Paramore and My Chemical Romance, as inspirations for the new record, which features appearances by Blink-182’s Travis Barker and Avril Lavigne.
