Rough Trade Album of the Month Club: September 2016 Pack

A sterling month! Sore Album: Angel Olsen - My Woman + Bonus CD. 10/10. Best I've heard this year! The Rest: The Allah-La's - Calico Review - 8/10. I received their debut two years ago. Laid back VU grooves. Factory Floor - 25 25. 8/10 Their debut was album of the month in 2014. This new one is more or less the same, but I don't mind. Next Up The Website has undergone changes so it will be difficult to predict next month's core album (good!): October: D.D. Dumbo? Douglas Dare?? November: Hope Sandoval?? December: Slowcoaches???
