EDITORS’ NOTES

Having amassed an impressive back catalog of singles and EPs, Nashville-raised indie artist Sophie Allison reappraises her own hushed, lo-fi heartbreakers on this mini-album. Although beefed up by her live band, Collection’s greatest achievement is that it breaks free of the bedroom—take the swirling jangle of “Benadryl Dreams”—without sacrificing any of that beguilingly hazy intimacy. “Try” brings a skipping C86 groove, and “Death by Chocolate” is an irresistible hymn to doomy adolescent longing.
