EDITORS’ NOTES

On Personal Life, indie tunesmith Hutch Harris suspends his fascinations with politics and religion to focus on the ups and downs of love. Between its dark bassline and Harris’ longing-soaked delivery, “Never Listen to Me” anchors the set’s ruminative atmosphere; “Only for You” follows a similar trajectory, until Harris’ heartache boils over into desperation at the end. But despite the songwriter’s trials and tribulations, the album closes on an upbeat note thanks to the tender indie pop ballad “You Changed My Life.”
