New This Week: Tame Impala // Highly Suspect // MS MR // More
Tame Impala – Currents
While we’re not the biggest Tame Impala fans on the planet, we grew quite fond of single Let it Happen. The album stays pretty much in the same vein which is departure from Tame Impala’s previous more guitar-driven sound. (Apple Music, Spotify).
Highly Suspect – Mister Asylum
With the careful roll-out of first Lydia and shortly there after Lost (my personal fav), followed by 23 in April, Claudeland in May and Mom in June, the now released album Mister Asylum on 300 Entertainment doesn’t really hold any surprises but in this case it’s a good thing! The Brooklyn via Cape Cod trio Highly Suspect create dark yet likable alt-rock with blues and punk influences. The 10 tracks on Mister Asylum are well crafted, with at times show-stopping guitar work and distinct vocals. Throw some well written lyrics into the mix and you have a pretty cool rock album. (Apple Music, Spotify)
Clairity – Alienation EP
MS MR – How Does it Feel
The Chemical Brothers – Born in the Echoes
There was a time when we would run to the record store to but the new Chemical Brothers, but that was when there were still record stores everywhere. In 2015 their music doesn’t feel so cutting edge anymore and the guest vocal thing is a little tired. But they still do sick beats that leave you breathless. (Apple Music, Spotify)
Jenny Lee Lindberg – Right On
Is is good or bad if a member of one of your favorite bands of all time announces a solo album? We’ll see. Not much is known about Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg’s upcoming album, except that it’s “coming soon”.
Monogold – Good Heavens
Brooklyn three piece and glamglare favorite Monogold announces their second album Good Heavens and share a new track Pink Lemonade.
Mensch – Tarifa
French duo Mensch announces their follow-up to their self-titled 2012 debut.
