The supergroup that no one saw coming, Alto Arc – the four-piece ensemble comprised of Deafheaven’s George Clarke, Danny L Harle, Hundred Waters’ Trayer Tryon, and the makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench – have released their eponymous debut album. Featuring Clarke and Ffrench on vocals, the record takes a leaf out of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, taking us on an epic quest through bordellos and witchy dreamscapes, with ye olde melodies and theatrical production courtesy of Harle and Tryon. 

Elsewhere, Kim Petras drops a sexy EP, Orville Peck brings sad country rock to his second album, and quinn harnesses 4/20 energy on a new three-track release.
