Life in rural Pennsylvania inspired Sinner Get Ready, the third album from multidisciplinary artist Kristin Hayter as Lingua Ignota. She recorded the project in Rhode Island with longtime collaborator Seth Manchester, using instruments with ties to traditional Appalachian music. Hayter also self-directed the video for “Pennsylvania Furnace,” which nods to an 18th century legend. Sinner Get Ready arrives two years after its predecessor Caligula.
Garage-rock mainstay Ty Segall surprise-released his First Taste follow-up earlier this week. Recorded in his newly completed Harmonizer Studios, the album continues Segall’s quest to expand his native genre’s form and sound palette, drawing on glossy synths, mushy textures, and the talents of his Freedom Band: Ben Boye, Mikal Cronin, Emmett Kelly, and Charles Moothart.
