Detroit artist Stef Chura releases her new album, Messes, this week via Urinal Cake and you can stream the whole thing below. As written before, Stef make hooky indie rock and she has a way with a turn-of-phrase, too, maybe somewhere between Liz Phair and Throwing Muses. Listen to the LP below.

Stef will be on tour with Priests starting next week, which means she won't be opening for them in Brooklyn this weekend. She does have a Brooklyn show coming up, playing Alphaville on February 2 with LionLimb and Kevin Krauter. Tickets are on sale now. She'll also be heading to SXSW so if you're going to be there definitely try and check out one of her shows.
