Yumi Zouma Videos
There may have not been many huge names releasing albums this week, but that's probably a good thing. Some of the records that came out are some of the best we've heard so far this year. Broncho released their third album, Double Vanity, the follow up to 2014's Just Enough Hip to Be Woman. Moods Baby Moods was unveiled today, the 11th album from Sonny & the Sunsets. Holy F*** returned with their first album in six years, Congrats.
Lead singer of the Dum Dum Girls, Kristin Welchez, released her first solo effort X-Communicate. Joey Purp dropped iiiDrops, which features "Grils @" [ft. Chance the Rapper], a song that will surely garner much attention for the rest of the year. The Hotelier released their third record Goodness. And that was only the beginning for a week full of amazing album releases.
