Banks London EP

I wrote about this one in my top EPs of the year list. It’s out physically next month, and if you like sultry electro-soul a la Kelela, Rhye and Jessie Ware, this should be right up your alley.

You’re right, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, this is exactly what we want: another sure-to-be-excellent classic soul record.

Warpaint made a quietly excellent debut of mesmerizing, atmospheric indie rock in 2010, and now the L.A. band is coming back with its long-awaited second album.

 

 

Sky Ferreira Night Time, My Time [Deluxe Edition]

Preorder on CD or LP

Sky Ferreira’s titlating pop debut had the blogosphere going nuts in 2013. Hear why, as her debut album finally comes out on physical disc with a second disc, which includes her early indie hit, “Everything Is Embarrassing.”

 

 

Dum Dum Girls Too True

Preorder on CD or LP

The noise-pop act sounds sleeker and sexier than ever on first single “Lost Boys and Girls Club.” Once again, they’re produced by Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, The Go-Go’s) and Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes).

 

 

St. Vincent St. Vincent

Preorder on CD or LP

Is intellectual pop weirdo St. Vincent rebranding on her self-titled fifth album (counting that David Byrne one)? We’re not sure, but “Birth in Reverse” has a bitchin’ dance beat to go with its gnarled riffs.

 

 

The War on Drugs Lost in the Dream

Preorder on CD or LP

Even without Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs returned with such a great second album (2011’s deliciously hazy Slave Ambient) that we’re betting Lost in the Dream will be yet another bootgazing delight.
