The Alt in Our Stars Podcast: Grimes and Deerhunter

These days, you just never know when some albums will come out. Will they ever come out? 

Some hit us with squeaky-clean rollouts and release dates (shoutout to ChvrchesEvery Open Eye), while others rule the rumor mill for years without concrete announcements. Will Grimes drop her new album this year, or will it continue to exist as the indie version of Kanye’s Swish? If it comes out of nowhere, what's it going to sound like? 

Host Chris Payne and Billboard rock charts specialist Emily White dive in on the latest Alt In Our Stars podcast. Which releases warrant the hype or deserve the (as White put it) “I’m sitting this one out” sigh of dismissal? What's it like to avoid the early streams and wait til release day to hear your favorite artist's record? 

For insight on the forthcoming music from Deerhunter, Beach Slang, Disclosure, Deafheaven, Diiv, Julia Holter, and more, listen to the podcast above.
