Thanks to the slow-moving machine that is the music industry, there’s a torrent of great music being released right now that’s heavily influenced by the feelings songwriters experienced in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. One album that qualifies is The Rose Gardener, the fourth album from Oliver Kalb’s bedroom emo-pop project Bellows. Kalb’s songs can be disarmingly intimate one second and unassumingly baroque the next, with electronic and orchestral touches always floating in and out of the arrangements. On The Rose Gardener, Kalb examines our culture of competitiveness, judgment, disconnection, dismissal, and loneliness, especially in the past, oh, two years or so. It’s a moving and meaningful work. — Ben Salmon
