Here are 12 great albums that are coming out soon. Better save your pennies!

Black LipsUnderneath the Rainbow (LP, Limited Edition LP or CD)

black lips underneath the rainbow lpOut March 18

Atlanta’s finest, scuzziest garage rock band is back with its seventh album. It’s co-produced by The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney. The video for “Boys in the Wood” has all kinds of homoerotic and drug-fueled forest mayhem.

 

 

Perfect PussySay Yes to Love (LP or CD)

perfect pussy say yes to love lpOut March 18

The NSFW-named band crafts an eight-song aural assault on their debut, feauturing sunny hardcore riffs and Meredith Graves’ distorted vocals.

 

 

The War on DrugsLost in the Dream (LP, Purple Vinyl or CD)

the war on drugs lost in the dream lpOut March 18

The War on Drugs’ latest album is even dreamier and more melodic than their previous release, Slave Ambient, full of road-trip songs for getting deliberately lost.

 

 

Cloud NothingsHere and Nowhere Else (LP, Color Vinyl and CD)

cloud nothings here and nowhere else lpOut April 1

Cloud Nothings’ newest album is already generating buzz, thanks to a couple of early tracks like the dynamite “Psychic Trauma.”

 

 

Mac DeMarcoSalad Days (LP or CD)

mac demarco salad days lpOut April 1

We just love Mac DeMarco. Everything we’ve heard from Salad Days so far has been golden, including the ornate “Passing Out the Pieces.”

 

 

 

OFF! - Wasted Years (LP or CD)

off! wasted years lpOut April 8  

The hardcore supergroup releases another album of breakneck-speed rockers delivered in less time than it takes to get your fast-food order.  

 

 

EMA  - The Future’s Void (LP or CD)

ema the future's void lpOut April 8

EMA’s great Past Life Martyred Saints recalled ’90s alt-rock with an art-school spin. So far, The Future’s Void continues that trend, vibing Smashing Pumpkins, emo and California girl-groups like The Bangles on “So Blonde.”

 

 

The Faint Doom Abuse (LP or CD)

the faint doom abuse lpOut April 8

The Faint are back and as dirty/sexy/cool as ever, judging by “Help in the Head.”

 

 

The Mary OnettesPortico (LP or CD)

the mary onettes portico lpOut April 8

New-wave/dream poppers The Mary Onettes haven’t had an album out since 2009, so it’s high time for a new one. “Naive Dream” is gorgeously woozy. Missed these dudes!

 

 

Thee Oh Sees - Drop (LP or CD)

thee oh sees drop lpOut April 15  

After a breakup fakeout, John Dwyer’s band is back with a new album, never slacking in their prolificacy.

 

 

Avey Tare's Slaher Flicks - Enter The Slasher House (LP or CD)

avey tareOut May 19  

Animal Collective man Avey Tare’s new band with ex-Dirty Projectors member Angela Deradoorian and ex-Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman. “Little Fang” features the wild twin vocals of Avey Tare and Deradoorian.  

 

 

ColdplayGhost Stories (CD)

coldplay ghost storiesMay 19

Megastars Colplay respond to their previous album, the grandiose Mylo Xyloto, with a more stripped-down album that returns them to their roots. Hear the grooving “Magic” below.

 

 

 

 

 

PLUS:

Led Zeppelin are reissuing their first three albums on vinyl! Preorder Led Zep I, II and III on LP or Deluxe LP. They’re out June 3.
