RIYL: Hole, Palehound, Courtney Barnett

Label: Saddle Creek

This is the debut album for Stef Chura called Messes. Saddle Creek is offering a Split Yellow & Orange version of this limited to 150. She has a sold sound and unique vocals, which is definitely worth consideration.

Stef Chura’s debut studio album, Messes, is born of her years of experience playing around the Michigan underground, setting up DIY shows in the area, and moving around the state. “Right when it starts to feel like home/It’s time to go,” she sings on its opening cut, ‘Slow Motion’, a twisty, dim-lit guitar pop song where she curls and stretches every word. There are worlds of emotion in the ways Chura pronounces phrases with twang and grit, alternatingly full of despair, playfulness, and abandon. Chura calls her music “emotional collage,” eschewing start-to-finish storylines in favor of writing intuitively about feelings, drawing from experiences and references related to a certain sentiment.
