It seems like each year you can count on just a small handful of incredible albums by artists you've never heard of before to emerge, seemingly from out of nowhere (actually it's usually Canada), vivid and fully formed, familiar and warm, destined to become lifelong favorites. Well we can comfortably add the resplendent debut full-length from Toronto's Shirley Hurt to that list for 2022. Check the record's lead single "Problem Child", featuring the man Joseph Shabason on the flute, below. Video directed & edited by Eli Spiegel. Shirley Hurt drops in December on the always great Telephone Explosion.
