New albums by HAIM and Jessie Ware named Best New Music by Pitchfork


Wow, the power of women. The notoriously tough staff at Pitchfork have given not one, but two albums by female artists the distinction of Best New Music this week, awarding HAIM's Women in Music Pt. III an 8.6 score and Jessie Ware's What's Your Pleasure? an 8.3 score.

Reviewing the third album by the sisters Haim, Aimee Cliff called it "intimate, multidimensional, and wide-ranging... with a great curiosity for melody and style"; in his writeup for What's Your Pleasure?, Owen Myers praised Ware for sounding "bolder, looser—and frankly, more fun—than she has in a near-decade."

The albums join the company of several others released by women to acclaim from Pitchfork in 2020 thus far, including Fiona Apple's Fetch the Bolt Cutters (10), KeyiaA's Forever, Ya Girl (8.2) and Phoebe Bridgers' Punisher (8.7).
