It was another great month for new music.
The supergroup of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires, and Natalie Hemby made a vivid, vital debut. Frankie Cosmos released a great follow up to their strong 2018 Sub Pop debut album. Pixies' third post-reunion album is their spookiest and most engaging music since getting back together. The Lumineers gave us a song cycle about addiction and codependency. On her solo debut, Alabama Shakes lead singer Brittany Howard revisits her past through a funky, adventurous prism. Nashville crooner Andrew Combs delivered a compelling 11-track set that looks to the cosmic country stylings of Lee Hazlewood. Tegan & Sara revisited songs they wrote as teens, giving them a modern update that nods to all the phases of their long career.
Here's some of our favorites for the month of September.
