    A whole slew of excellent albums hit the shelves and airwaves this week, and Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is finally out, giving us some welcomed relief from that media storm. Yoko Ono released I'm A Witch Too (Manimal Vinyl). Wolfmother put out the meaty and rock 'n roll-driven Victorious (UMe). Ra Ra Riot spoke with us about their just released Need Your Light (Barsuk). And The Cave Singers also dropped by to discuss Banshee (self-released).

    Animal Collective released the colorful Painting With (Domino). The always relevant Mavis Staples worked with everyone from M. Ward to Nick Cave on her newest album Livin On a High Note (Ant-). The reclusive Kenny Dixon, Jr., aka Moodymann, released the stunning DJ-Kicks (!K7).

    Here are our favorites:

    LNZNDRF - LNZNDRF - 4AD

    When members of The National and Beirut get together, you're sure they're going to create something intriguing. LNZNDRF has finally released their self-titled debut, and it's just what you would expect from the minds of two of indie rock's most thoughtful bands.


    Deep Sea Diver - Secrets - Self-released

    Jessica Dobson may currently be a member of The Shins, but that doesn't mean she isn't creating on her own. Secrets and its Polica-era-infused sound is haunting yet mesmerizing, jagged and still somehow smooth.


    BJ the Chicago Kid - In My Mind - Motown

    When the likes of Chance The Raper and Kendrick Lamar are willing to put themselves on your album, it's a sign. BJ the Chicago Kid's sophomore LP is sexual gospel and everything you want from an R&B singer-songwriter today.
