Label: ARTium Recordings/AWAL
Released: August 16

Snoh Aalegra’s Ugh, those feels again sounds so damn free. It begins with “Here Now,” which works as the perfect intro, making use of beautifully soulful, distorted vocals that set a vibe for the rest of the album. Then, emotions build on the next track, “I Want You Around.” For the remix, Aalegra enlisted fellow heartbroken savior 6LACK, but even on it’s own, the song is a microcosm of what the entire album feels like. Ugh, those feels again is filled with a sense of euphoria, which routinely rises to the surface, no matter how much pain guides her lyrics. Snoh Aalegra patiently takes her time to settle in on most songs, and when she finally does, angelic choirs often swoop in to deliver heavenly soundbeds for your ears. On “Whoa,” she sings, “I don’t feel the ground,” and for the entire 40-minute runtime of this project, you won’t either. —Kemet High
