As we march out of March, we have some great new albums from towering indie acts to lead us into Spring. UK songwriter Ben Howard, who blends atmospheric production with subtly powerful songwriting, has released his latest LP. Alt. emo group The Antlers are back with their first new album in seven years, and the eclectic Merrill Garbus has her latest album as Tune-Yards out. Sibling group AJR have their latest full length out, and we have the debut LP from 24kGoldn, which is destined to hit high on the charts. You can also hear the latest album from rock trio Citizen (and read our review of the album here), Aussie garage rockers Skegss (see our post about their music video for “Valhalla” here) and the new EP from alt pop group Peach Tree Rascals.
For fans of punk, pop-punk, emo and ska, you will have a lot to be excited about today. Capitalizing on their current “monster” hit on the charts, All Time Low have dropped a new single to keep their heat going. Rising pop-punk band Meet Me @ The Alter have a new single out, as do hard-hitting LA punks The Bronx. Ska group The Lidds have dropped another new single, and in very exciting news, Bad Astronaut (an indie punk supergroup featuring members of Lagwagon, Sugarcult and more) have released their first new single in many many years.
Canadian band The Arkells are back with a new K. Flay-assisted single that will get you moving for sure. Beabadoobee also received an assist on her new single from The 1975‘s Matt Healy. We’ve also got new songs from previous World Watch group Vinok, ska punks Bruce Lee Band, and rising acts Cold Moon, Molly Lewis, Livingmore, and World’s First Cinema.
