Releases from Willi Carlisle and Terminal Nation are amongst Stereogum’s 50 favourite albums of 2024 to this point

On Tuesday, common indie music weblog Stereogum published a list of their 50 favourite albums of the 12 months to this point, and two Arkansas artists obtained a point out. 

The pair — softhearted singer-songwriter Willi Carlisle (technically Missouri-based now, however Northwest Arkansas bred him) and Little Rock loss of life steel outfit Terminal Nation — couldn’t be extra aesthetically totally different from each other, however I’d prefer to suppose they see eye to eye in the case of a few of our nation’s harsh political realities. 

The stock, which incorporates the likes of Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend and Waxahatchee (she got here out on high), ought to maybe be learn as “extra a celebration than a contest, regardless of the numerical part,” however in case you’re curious, Carlisle’s “Critterland” got here in at No. 33 and Terminal Nation’s “Echoes Of The Satan’s Den” obtained the No. 42 spot. Listed here are the blurbs Stereogum wrote about every album:

Willi Carlisle – Critterland (Signature Sounds)

“Chickens within the yard/ Preserves in Mason jars/ Dry county mud has obtained me feelin’ kinda low.” So it goes in Critterland, the world so skillfully sketched out by Fayetteville country-folk singer-songwriter Willi Carlisle. There’s a hint of Jason Molina in Carlisle’s robust, quavering voice, however his perspective is all his personal as he unpacks ideas on habit, faith, household heritage, and queer love within the Deep South. The album is stuffed with photographs that may persist with you, delivered with passionate conviction.

 

Terminal Nation – Echoes Of The Satan’s Den (20 Buck Spin)

“Fuck each fucking cop that’s ever fucking lived!” Political statements don’t get way more direct and visceral than that. The phrase itself has energy, and it beneficial properties much more when Terminal Nation ship it in a guttural hell-demon roar on their music “No Reform (New Age Slave Patrol).” On their second LP, the Arkansas band expands their crushing mixture of loss of life steel and hardcore, attaining thundering majesty. The gut-pummeling riffage can be loads potent by itself, however Terminal Nation are utilizing all that crunch to say one thing unmistakable.
