Albums To Look For Spring 2019

Spring 2019 promises a slew of records from buzzworthy newcomers and old faves. Bands like Priests and Ex Hex continue their ascendancy. The Drums, Jenny Lewis, and Vampire Weekend return after some time away, delivering star-studded casts, evolutions in sound, and instantly addictive singles. Then, of course, there are the latest laid back emissions from Mac Demarco, riotous live tracks from Ty Segall, and an emotionally compelling tribute from Steve Earle & The Dukes.

Read on to discover some of our must-have new releases. Your spring soundtrack awaits, with preorders available now.

Ex Hex - It's Real

Ex Hex - It's Real (out 3/22)

On their second LP, It's Real, Ex Hex builds on their garage/post-punk hybrid sound, evolving into a bigger, fuller, lusher sound. Experimental and intriguing, it will be available on standard black and limited edition magenta/blue swirl color vinyl.

Haim Release "My Song 5" Video Featuring A$AP Ferg, Ezra Koenig, Ke$ha, Grimes and Vanessa Bayer

Sister-pop trio Haim apparently opened the “famous people we know” tab on their address book and started dialing around when it came time to film a video for Days Are Gone’s “My Song 5.”

SNL’s Vanessa Bayer hosts a Sally Jessy Raphael-style talk show in which we see one of the Haims in love with mimes, Ke$ha in love with her cat and A$AP Ferg as a guest whose girlfriend has fallen for another woman. Hey look, there’s Grimes chilling in the waiting room. And there’s Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig sitting in the audience. OK, it’s pretty much a game of spot the famous person, but still pretty fun!

Days Are Gone is out now and is still really good.

A lot of people were talking about Imagine Dragons' performance with Kendrick Lamar, while our favorite has to be Beyonce's opening performance of "Drunk in Love" with her husband, Jay Z.
