Radical Romantics (CD)

Fever Ray

Fever Ray is back with their first album in five years, Radical Romantics . The album title is an accurate synopsis of this left-field electro-pop production; as you’d expect, the songs are glittering and strange, filled with twists and turns both lyrical and melodic, all rooted in a deep love for both the darkness and the (heavily filtered) light. Fans of The Knife will rejoice to hear that Karin Dreijer has recruited their brother and The Knife bandmate Olof Dreijer for the first several songs, creating a vibe that eventually shifts into more buoyant, technicolor sonic territory as the album goes on. Fellow travelers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross contribute, as do Nídia, Johannes Berglund, Peder Mannerfelt, and Vessel.

High Drama (CD)

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert delivers what he promises on High Drama . These tracks are simply grand: larger-than-life operatic rock numbers featuring Lambert’s smooth, soaring vocals, powered by a legend’s over-the-top rock ’n’ roll spirit and imbued with an artist’s emotional high-highs and low-lows. High Drama is an ingenious mix of cover songs, ranging from karaoke classics (Bonnie Tyler, Culture Club) to edgy recent releases (Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey). Lambert delivers them all with panache; it’s a pleasure to hear his take on these tracks.

The Other One (CD)

Babymetal

The originators of kawaii metal, Babymetal, return with a smashing new album, The Other One . Fusing J-pop (albeit with a darker, more melancholy bent) with heavy metal, the songs feature ripping, brutal guitar riffs and honey-sweet yet powerful vocals from main vocalist Su-metal. Be assured that while "kawaii" (or "cute") is often associated with this band, they truly, truly do kick ass. The Other One is a thoroughly enjoyable thrill ride of an album from one of the most innovative, exciting, and just straight-up fun bands pushing the typically dude-heavy genre into new territory.

Strange Dance (LP)

Philip Selway

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway evolves his sound on his third solo album, Strange Dance . The songs feel at once familiar and down-to-earth, cinematic and sweeping. Selway wrote the tracks at home on his piano and guitar, passing off drum duties to his impressive cast of collaborators. (Hannah Peel, Adrian Utley, Quinta, Marta Salogni, Valentina Magaletti, and Laura Moody all contribute to the soaring, orchestral atmosphere.) Strange Dance is an album that’s both inviting and intriguing, a nuanced work that nourishes the soul of the listener as much as it seems to have fed the creative spirit of its dream team of creators.

The Love Still Held Me Near (CD)

City And Colour

City and Colour's new album, The Love Still Held Me Dear , features some of Dallas Green's most intimate, electrifying songwriting to date. Written as a way of processing the loss of his best friend, Green shares his journey through heartbreak, grief, and eventually finding comfort and hope. Elements of blues and country add sweeping emotion, grit, and fierceness to these well-crafted tracks. The songs feel like old friends, even on first listen, which is a testament both to Green's musicianship and to the real inspiration behind these songs. Fans will treasure this one.

Expendables (CD)

Fake Names

When punk rock needed a new hero, Fake Names answered the call. Expendables is the latest album from the supergroup, comprised of Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, INVSN, The [International] Noise Conspiracy), Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace), Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside) and new member Brendan Canty (Fugazi, Rites of Spring). With a crew like that, you'd expect this to be good, but even so, you wouldn't be prepared for how instantly likable this album is, how instantly the songs get under your skin. Expendables has the energy and ethos of classic punk with the genre heritage of hardcore, post-hardcore, and post-punk to keep things fresh, urgent, and impactful.

This Must Be The Place [Yellow Vinyl] (LP)

Apollo Brown

This Must Be the Place is Apollo Brown's first instrumental album since 2014's Thirty Eight . It's a warm, summery collection of songs with a nostalgic sheen, imbued with beauty, love, and hope for a brighter tomorrow. Brown crafted these songs from compositions solicited from his colleagues, chopping, looping, and deconstructing their original work to create yearning jazz-funk numbers and hazy, dreamy soul pieces. This Must Be the Place is cinematic and striking, the soundtrack to a place and a mood you'll want to revisit again and again.

Raven (CD)

Kelela

On Raven , Kelela proves once again she’s one of the most exciting artists working in the alternative R&B space. The tracks on Raven sound like a sort of rebirth; the emotions are intense, the compositions innovative and exhilarating. There’s no predictability here and Kelela has her listeners on the edge of their seats the entire time as shimmering and ethereal textural tracks segue into drum ’n’ bass ballads and electronic washes of sound shift into dancehall grooves. Raven is impressive. If you dug what Kelela was doing before, these new tracks are on a whole other level.

Traveling Wildfire (CD)

Dom Flemons

Multi-instrumentalist, olde time music expert, and erstwhile member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Dom Flemons returns with another rousing and riveting solo album, Traveling Wildfire . On this collection of original songs, Flemons' ability to conjure the mood of a different time and place is spotlighted, as he melds bluegrass, folk, country, and Americana into timeless tracks that could be from today or 100 years ago. Opener "Slow Dance with You" is a heartfelt, one-moment-in-time ballad. "It's Cold Outside" is a haunting, melancholy charmer. And "Guess I'm Doing Fine" feat. Sam Bush feels like a true stomper, with fast fiddle and lyrical banjo. An excellent album from an artist who deeply understands his chosen genre.

Marlowe 2 [Deluxe Edition] (LP)

Marlowe

Several years ago, producer L’Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham first brought us Marlowe, an alt-rap project with an ethos rooted in the musical stylings of the past and a lyricism inspired by the social issues of today. Now they’re back with Marlowe 2 . It’s an album that’s pure fire. The crackle of vintage vinyl samples, the propulsive beats, the vocals that swim seamlessly from funky to fierce; few acts are doing it like Marlowe these days. Brigham raps about police brutality, poverty, and the societal issues that dominate the news cycle today (but that stem back generations). This is heady stuff. The intelligent, impactful Marlowe 2 will work its power on both your heart and your mind.

Louie (CD)

Kenny Beats

Kenny Beats’ visionary debut Louie is one of the most exciting, creatively inspired hip-hop albums in recent memory. Having worked with everyone from Denzel Curry to Dominic Fike to Doja Cat, it’s no surprise that he’s capable of crafting an eclectic collection of tracks that both seamlessly flow and are a vibe unto themselves. The production is lush and atmospheric, the melodies influenced by retro soul, funk, and jazz. This joyous, groove-filled record feels like a summer day, whether you’re spinning it in the middle of winter or with the windows rolled all the way down.

College Park (CD)

Logic

On his first independent release since leaving Def Jam, Logic goes back to his roots with College Park . Logic takes it back to 2011 on the album, giving us an autobiographical glimpse into a formative period. It’s a truly epic album, filled with the optimism and desperate hope of youth, alongside all the fears and challenges that lurk in the shadows. Featuring an all-star cast of collaborators, College Park has appearances from Bun B and Lil Keke, Norah Jones, Joey Bada$$, and RZA, just to name a few. It’s a heartfelt, high-octane album that showcases Logic doing what he does best.
