First Transmission: Sun June, Records.

Brimming with Feistian intimacy, Mothers’ becoming magnetism and Sharon Van Etten’s doleful, if faintly hopeful lachrymosity alike, Records comes from Austin, Texan quintet Sun June’s début, Years. And while I know not how many it may have been in the making, it’s one that sounds as though it could quite conceivably stick about for many yet to come: from the buoyant Young to the blurry-eyed, Joan Wasser-esque Johnson City, there is an instantly timeless sense of resplendence to its ten songs. It’s the aforesaid Records, however, which sticks out most prominently, as Laura Colwell’s candid divulgence: “I tried to love you right” is offset by gently weeping guitars, comparably resolute bass, and a skeletal drum track to create the kind of classic that doubtless sounds best on black polyvinyl chloride measuring 12” in diameter.

Years is available now via Keeled Scales.
