We’ve made it through April everyone. What albums have you enjoyed from this month? If you haven’t found something yet, then hopefully one of the new albums out today will help you close out the month with a smile.
Folk-rock band The Head and the Heart have their latest, including the excellent single “Virginia”. Alternative/indie rockers Bloc Party have their first album out in a good long while, and up-and-coming pop-punk artist Mattstagraham is showing off his debut. Singer-songwriter Don McCloskey, who we’ve become fans of here, has his new album out today, and we get the debut album from Guise, who have released two excellent singles so far. We’ve also got a new EP from one of our favorites, Nathan Gray.
Though their new album is only a week away, Arcade Fire have dropped one more taster of it before dropping the whole thing. Tegan and Sara make a triumphant return with a new single, and kindred musical spirits Muna have the third song from their upcoming album. Giovannie & the Hired Guns have announced their next album, and released a new track to go with it. Maggie Lindemann has gotten the second-most busy person in pop-punk (Behind Travis Barker), Kellin Quinn, to feature on her new single, while Lit have gotten Adrian Young of No Doubt fame on theirs. 80’s stadium stars Journey have a new single to sing along to, and Beabadoobee has the second single from her next album out.
The Knocks have recruited Cold War Kids for their latest jam, and some other familiar artists returning to the list this week are Another Michael, Sunliner, Nate Bergman, Diane Coffee and Thomas Dollbaum. Artists getting their first spins on our playlist this week are Holy Coves, Dolo Tonight, Five Hundred Bucks, Benjamin Carter, Beach Rats, Don’t Panic, Jillian Lake and Trashed.
