SADURN
Intimacy is manifested in every moment of “Radiator,” the debut album from Philadelphia’s Sadurn. This feeling of closeness, of being able to lend your every sense to one’s confessions of internal conflict, has carried over from the band’s origins as the solo bedroom-folk project of frontperson Genevieve DeGroot. 
Now emerging as a four-piece with the addition of members Jon Cox, Tabitha Ahnert, and Amelia Swain, Sadurn delivers emotive indie rock on “Radiator” that explores the struggles and eventual beauty of grappling with multiple emotional realities, particularly when it comes to relationships. The album is a fleeting, impactful glimpse at one’s whole heart, and its sweeping, special nature is evident from the moment it opens.

GREG FREEMAN
“Greg Freeman deals in biblical deluges, apocalyptic fever dreams, Floridian miscreants, and green mountain malaise. On his excellent debut LP “I Looked Out,” Gregs’s voice takes center stage, creaking, crooning, and cutting through clouds of static. The songs are linked together by a palpable urgency, whether it is the punch-in-the-face, careening momentum of “Tower,” the country-gazing guitar squall of “Souvenir Heart,” or the singalong finale of “Palms.” Careful arrangements and production choices bring out the best of the 7-piece band that ornament the album with pedal steel, horns, eerie strings, and tape warbles. Greg’s strong narrative songwriting is equally effective chronicling the demise of a 1920s ocean liner as it is documenting his own interpersonal uncertainties. The sounds on the record conjure up the feeling of driving around Chittenden County in the middle of winter, high beams on, slush on the floor mats. It’s hard for me to imagine a more promising debut record, and I can’t wait to see where this band goes next.” – Garrett Linck
