RIYL: Natalie Prass, Big Thief

Label: Secretly Canadian

Great new release coming here from Faye. Honestly I wanted to release this record from SVR but you know SC is cooler. But really excited for the music Faye is putting out, has a great indie – alt country vibe. This album looks to feature a bit more soulful vibes than previous and excited to hear the whole thing. Jump in and grab the limited colored vinyl before it’s gone.

The Details

Atlanta Millionaires Club is in Faye Webster's feelings, and that’s the way she likes it. "Everything is way personal," Webster says. "I have to write about very personal things for me to even want to write." On the 21-year-old Atlanta native’s new album, the omnipresence of pedal steel eschews bluegrass trappings, exible under Webster's genre-bending direction. Webster didn’t set out to make it sound like any artist in particular, but she cites Aaliyah as her main musical inspiration for how she uses sound. "That's where I first heard, 'Oh, there's this weird guitar that's bendy and it could totally be in a country song,' but the way she's using it is what makes her music so special to me," Webster explains. "I try to do that. I try to change the way pedal steel is supposed to sound, or keys, to make it more R&B." Pulling from a familial lineage of folk storytelling and time spent in Atlanta's hip-hop scene, Webster's work is a study of duality, weaving through her own introversion and heartbreak; it's an idiosyncratic sadness punctuated by fleeting observations and an unexpected, sly sense of humor. And like the way Webster takes the traditional instrumentation of Americana and ips it into something else, she uses her own calm, laid-back demeanor to say you can be boldly and unapologetically yourself in a quiet way, too.
