We’re halfway through May, and with the sunshine coming in, I’m feeling like Alex Lahey looks on her album cover. Yep, we have a new album from the Australian pop-punk songwriter that should be a fun one. The Dave Matthews Band have their latest collection to jam out to, and if you want something else eclectic, listen to the latest from Tuareg band Tinariwen and Malawian singer Keturah. The Milk Carton Kids craft beatific folk numbers, so be sure to stream their new album if that’s your cup of tea. If you need something louder and dirtier, The Used are back with their latest album. And the legendary Paul Simon should be everyone’s cup of tea, and his new holistic album is out now.
Both the Foo Fighters and KennyHoopla have dealt with serious losses in their lives the last couple years, so I hope these new songs released this week have been a part of their healing. And if you want more rock to blast out, Greta Van Fleet, Corey Taylor and Chris Farren‘s new ones all get loud. Bad Ass Break-Out Morgan Wade is gearing up for a new album with her latest “Psychopath”, and Lana Del Rey churns out songs like rabbits procreate (yup, another new one from her). And Blur are making a triumphant return with a new single and album on the way.
Indie punks Audio Karate have the first new song from their next album out today, former pop-punk stars Boys Like Girls are making a triumphant return with new material. Indie rock darlings Spoon dropped a song from a new EP coming later this year, and Deer Tick have the third cut from their upcoming LP. Other artists we are big fans of with new music out today include Spanish Love Songs, Arkells, Ron Pope, Ryan Hamilton, Hotel Mira, Devon Kay & The Solution, Hannah Jagadu, Matt Maeson, Goo Goo Dolls x OAR, Golden Vultures, Iglu & Hartley, Low Coast and Angry Youth Elite.
