Label: Saddle Creek
Release type: 'RSD First' Release
In 2017, Detroit’s Stef Chura released her debut album, Messes, to widespread acclaim. Stereogum wrote, "In Messes, you can hear the idea that DIY rock music can be as warm and friendly and melodic as any other kind of music.” Pitchfork called Stef’s lyrics "poetic and sharply rendered,” and said the album "falls just right, like a stretched-out sweater with holes in the collar.” Since Messes came out, Stef toured relentlessly, signed with Saddle Creek, and even found time to record some songs with Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest fame. Those songs can be found on the Record Store Day exclusive 7” Degrees / Sour Honey, available April 21st at your favorite independent record store.
