It was quite the week for new albums. We saw the release of some of the most-anticipated records of the year, including Angel Olsen's My Woman and Isaiah Rashad's The Sun's Tirade. Zomby released his first album since 2013, featuring cuts with Burial and Darkstar. Jamie T returned with Trick, which falls somewhere between Kings & Queens and Carry On The Grudge when it comes to style. We caught up with with Morcheeba's Skye & Ross to discuss their new, self-titled album.
Matthew Cooper, aka Eluvium, released his eighth album under that moniker. British indie rockers, The Wedding Present, unveiled their ninth studio album Going, Going…, inspired by a trip across the United States. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with some of our favorite albums released so far this year.
Here are our favorites:
Angel Olsen - My Woman - Jagjaguwar
We've been waiting for Angel Olsen's follow up to Burn Your Fire for No Witness ever since it was announced. My Woman is even better. It's eclectic and electric, mixing styles and sounds and proving that the singer-songwriter is one of the most intriguing voices around.
Southern Shores - Loja - Cascine
We caught up with Southern Shores to discuss their stunning new LP Loja.
Isaiah Rashad - The Sun's Tirade - Top Dawg Entertainment
It seems like we've been talking about Isaiah Rashad forever, but today he finally released his debut studio album The Sun's Tirade. It leaves no room for doubting the rappers abilities and suggests that only a bright future is ahead of him.
serpentwithfeet - blisters EP - Tri Angle
serpentwithfeet's debut EP, blisters, leaves little to doubt about why the artists has been on the tips of everyone's tongues. Elegant string work, tight songwriting, and a unique sound contribute to make the record one of the most-inspired of the year.
