Thee Oh Sees Videos
It's fair to say that some pretty awesome albums came out this week. A few long time indie chart toppers returned with new material. Of Montreal debuted their fourteenth studio album, Innocence Reaches. Atmosphere released their eighth studio LP, Fishing Blues, featuring a bunch of other artists, including DOOM, Aesop Rock, Kool Keith, and the Grouch. Speaking about albums featuring big names in hip hop, Rae Sremmurd unveiled Sremmlife 2, featuring spots with Gucci Mane, Juicy J, Lil Jon, and Kodak Black.
Toronto-based singer-producer Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, aka PartyNextDoor, released his third album PartyNextDoor 3, which includes the Drake-featuring "Come and See Me". There were also a couple of television show soundtracks released that are worthy of note. Netflix's Stranger Things soundtrack was debuted and it is scored by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. Meanwhile, The Get Down, which was released today on Netflix, also unveiled its soundtrack, featuring Nas, Miguel, Janelle Monae, and others. And that was only the beginning.
Here are our favorites:
Brendan Canning - Home Wrecking Years - Arts & Crafts
Home Wrecking Years is a feel good album with fascinating instrumentation. The third record from Brendan Canning, co-founder of Broken Social Scene, might be his best solo effort yet.
Thee Oh Sees - A Weird Exits - Castle Face Records
Thee Oh Sees seem to have found their stride over their last two records. A Weird Exits' psych-prog-punk finds Thee Oh Sees refining their style and preparing to rock pits from coast to coast.
Flamingosis - Bright Moments - VinDig
You can just feel the summer vibes wash over you on Flamingosis' Bright Moments. It's the perfect summer record and suited perfectly for these last days of sunshine and warm breezes.
Katie Dey - Flood Network - Joy Void Recordings
Katie Dey's style of bedroom pop is totally made for her ears, and Flood Network and its listeners benefits from that. There are certainly some strange moments throughout, making the entire experience even more unique.
