We’re back, and it’s another crowded release week, so here’s the new albums and songs we think you should spend some time with this next week!
First is the debut LP from local punks Near Beer. Their EP was one of our Tops of last year, so we think you’ll enjoy this rambunctious release. There’s also the new one from veteran emocore punks Senses Fail (read our review of it here) if you want to get out some aggression. Beabadoobee and Steve Lacy continue to prove themselves alternative stars with their new albums, and indie darlings …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead are back after a long break with a new full length. And if you like your hip-hop with an emo tinge, the latest solo album from Travie McCoy should wet your appetite.
There’s likely a lot of crossover between fans of The Mountain Goats, Silversun Pickups and Tegan & Sara, so those fans are fortunate because all three have new singles out this week. Old school pop-punkers Cartel are back with their first single in many years, and we’ve got a new one from Michigander. Mumford & Sons‘ Marcus Mumford is releasing his first solo single this week, and we have the second single from Death Cab for Cutie‘s next album.
P!nk has release a propulsive protest song, and Maggie Rogers is continuing to prove her alt-pop dominance with her third single. Des Rocs has another new rocker, while Trampled by Turtles are chugging along with more alt country goodness. We’re being gifted a new banger from the great Sam Fender, and you got to appreciate Less Than Jake‘s new Fat Mike-referencing song.
Other artists making their return to the list this week are Sylvia Rose Novak, Maggie Lindemann, Surf Curse, Disturbed, boy pablo, SEB, Nathan Gray, Young the Giant and Hidden in Plain View. Artists getting their first adds to our list this week are No Devotion, High Vis, Trubbleboy, Keep Flying, Have Mercy, McCall, Strange Breed, The Band Ice Cream, Trashed, Mightmare and Skid Row. Yep, there’s a new Skid Row single out!
