Forming in middle school a decade ago, San Francisco's The She's have come of age as a band. Their second LP's title reclaims the reductive description they've inevitably encountered over the years, and its music represents their most mature, experimental, and self-aware to date. There's "a new sense of dedicated focus, the scuzziness of the recording matched by gleaming, razor-sharp guitar-pop aesthetics which feel immediately compelling," says Gold Flake Paint. They self-produced the record, crediting Merrill Garbus of TuneYards as a mentor, and pair it with a booklet featuring original artwork from 11 inspiring women (moms, sisters, other artists). It's out on Empty Cellar Records (Cool Ghouls, The Sandwitches).Official website
