Descendents, DJ Khaled, Nao Lead Top Albums Of The Week - July 23-29
Fri, 29 Jul 2016 15:54:36
It was quite the week when it came to new albums. Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson released the fourth album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, from his side and now main project, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. American country singer Jake Owen released his fifth record, American Love.
Punk may not have the same popularity as it used to, but when it came to big time acts dropping albums, this week the world of punk was put on notice. The Bouncing Souls released their tenth album, Simplicity. Speaking of New Jersey punk rockers, Titus Andronicus unveiled their live record S+@dium Rock: Five Nights at the Opera. And Canadian punk rockers Billy Talent debuted their fifth LP, Afraid Of Heights. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with excellent new releases.
Here are our favorites:
Descendents - Hypercaffium Spazzinate - Epitaph
The biggest punk rock release of this week is Descendents' Hypercaffium Spazzinate. It's the first records since 2004 from the punk legends, and any fans of the genre should take a listen.
DJ Khaled - Major Key - Epic
Major Key is DJ Khaled's ninth studio album. If you have any question about just how good he is, check out who else is featured on the record: Jay Z, Future, Drake, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Betty Wright, J. Cole, Bryson Tiller, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, Rick Ross, Kodak Black, Jeezy, French Montana, YG, Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Kent Jones, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, Meghan Trainor, Wiz Khalifa, Wale and Mavado.
Rome Fortune - VVORLDWIDE PIMPSATION
Rome Fortune seemingly dropped VVORLDWIDE PIMPSATION out of nowhere this week. The follow up to his 2015 debut, Jerome Raheem Fortune, is even better.
Nao - For All We Know - Little Tokyo/RCA
The debut album from electronic singer-songwriter Nao already has three impressive singles, "Bad Blood," "Fool to Love," and "Girlfriend". We certainly recommend her electronic brand of soul and R&B.
