In 2017, it was ranked the 130th greatest album of the 1960s by Pitchfork. In 2019, it was ranked the greatest Christmas album of all time by Rolling Stone.

1971 remix of the original album. Anthem of the Sun is the second album by The Grateful Dead, released in 1968 on Warner Bros/Seven Arts. It is the first album to feature second drummer Mickey Hart. The band was also joined by Tom Constanten, who contributed avant-garde instrumental and studio techniques influenced by composers John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen. The album was assembled through a collage-like editing approach helmed by members Jerry Garcia and Phil Lesh (along with soundman Dan Healy), in which disparate studio and live performance tapes were spliced together to create new hybrid recordings. The band also supplemented their performances with instruments such as prepared piano, kazoo, harpsichord, timpani, trumpet, and güiro. The result is an experimental amalgam that is neither a true studio album nor a live album.

Isaiah Rashad returns with The House Is Burning, a mesmerizing album full of emotional raps, dream-like production, and guest appearances from Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, Duke Deuce, 6LACK, Smino, and more. It’s been over five years since the release of his critically acclaimed album The Sun’s Tirade, but this new record reaffirms Rashad’s status as one of rap’s most gifted storytellers. The project is varied and diverse, showcasing Rashad’s comfort in a host of different themes and moods. He veers between reflective and braggadocious as he unpacks troubling thoughts and ephemeral thrills over soundscapes from Kal Banx, Hollywood Cole, Kenny Beats, and more. On standout “From the Garden,” Rashad flaunts an intricate flow as he trades quick-fire flexes with Lil Uzi Vert, making for a song that begs to be shouted. The single “Headshots (4r Da Locals),” by contrast, finds Rashad in an introspective space, murmuring as he reflects on battles with addiction and past trauma. Other tracks, like “Wat U Sed” offer up dazed croons and low-key bounce. Each song is distinct from the last, forming a vibrant tapestry of sounds. The range speaks to the breadth of his experience—all the lessons learned and life lived in the five years between The Sun’s Tirade and The House Is Burning. Sifting through his psyche and further refining his raps, Rashad’s latest represents a new peak for the gifted artist. “This album was difficult,” he says. “Music is where I go to express myself. It’s what I do to close a chapter. You know what’s crazy? I’m not even ashamed to say it, I really think my albums aren’t different from each other. It’s just me every time and eventually, one of my albums will become a classic.”

Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t write love songs as much as songs about the impact love can have on our lives, personalities, and priorities. Punisher, her fourth release and second solo album, is concerned with that subject. To say she writes about heartbreak is to undersell her blue wisdom, to say she writes about pain erases all the strange joy her music emanates. The arrival of Punisher cements Phoebe Bridgers as one of the most clever, tender and prolific songwriters of our era.
Bridgers is the rare artist with enough humor to deconstruct her own meteoric rise. Repeatedly praised by publications like The New Yorker, The New York Times, GQ, Pitchfork, The Fader, The Los Angeles Times and countless others, Bridgers herself is more interested in discussing topics on Twitter, deadpanning meditations on the humiliating process of being a person, she presents a sweetly funny flipside to the strikingly sad songs she writes. Fittingly, Punisher is fascinated with, and driven by, that kind of impossible tension. Whether it’s writing tweets or songs, Bridgers’s singular talent lies in bringing fierce curiosity to slimy and painful things, interrogating them until they yield up answers that are beautiful and absurd, or faithfully reporting the reality that, sometimes, they are neither.
Bridgers pulls together a formidable crew of guests, including the Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, Christian Lee Hutson and Conor Oberst as well as Nathaniel Walcott (of Bright Eyes), Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Jenny Lee Lindberg (of Warpaint), Blake Mills and Jim Keltner as well as her longtime bandmates Marshall Vore (drums), Harrison Whitford (guitar), Emily Retsas (bass) and Nick White (keys). The album was mixed by Mike Mogis, who also mixed Stranger In The Alps.
On the album’s epic, freewheeling closer, “I Know The End,” Bridgers orchestrates wails and horns, drums and electric guitar into a sumptuous doomsday swirl, culminating in her own final whispered roar. This is Punisher in a nutshell: devastating elegance punctuated by a moment of deeply campy self-awareness.
