As a whole, Geist is both esoteric and accessible. Songs range from a concise, pared-back cover of Syd Barrett's tilt-a-whirl-esque "Late Night," to the meditative Dune-inspired "Rare to Wake," to the mostly a-cappella "Awaken and Allow," which channels Lay's deep Irish roots - it's intensity mirroring the anticipation and anxiety that come with taking the first step to accepting change for yourself.

Mann started developing the new music in 2018 when she agreed to write songs for a stage adaptation of Girl, Interrupted, Susannah Kaysen’s 1993 memoir. Each song touches on a chapter or character in the book, which details the nearly two years Kaysen spent in a Massachusetts psychiatric institution starting in 1967. It’s material Mann poignantly confronts, having had her own struggles with mental illness.

Though much has been made of AHI’s years spent backpacking everywhere from the hills of Ethiopia to the jungles of Trinidad, Prospect, the globetrotter’s extraordinary new album, is the story of an even more profound journey: an internal quest for understanding and self-discovery. Lines are blurred between roots, folk, pop, and soul as AHI grapples with pain and healing, faith and resilience, connection and identity.

Night Divine is a series of hymns covered by Fallon, lead singer of the beloved heartland-punk band The Gaslight Anthem. This is a project he's been wanting to create for a long time, inspired by his time singing in the church choir as a child: “These are some of the very first sounds I remember hearing as a child. My mother used to sing these hymns everywhere she went. I felt it was time for me to join in.”

Shifting seamlessly between gut-punching roars and heady cleans, vocalist Matt Tuck sounds better than ever, his vitriolic cries of “I hope you choke!” serving as a defiant proclamation for anyone who ever derided them as “false metal.” BFMV’s climbs back to its metallic peaks with this self-titled seventh offering -- a raging, all-box-ticking album that will enamor fans of all eras.
