This week's album and EP releases

...Sunday isn't that far from Thursday...

...I'm sorry!


Here's a list of a lot of things that came out in this past week, mostly up through Friday. Of course, there's no way to be completely comprehensive with this and I avoided including things where information was too lacking, so feel free to mention anything that isn't on here that you think is worth mentioning.

    I predict King Gizzard will continue increasing their album release speed until they finally put out one new album a week for an entire year. This one's pretty lively, so much boogie.

    Walker Lukens was a bit of a step down from his previous one. It's not bad, he's just gone more into danceable pop than I generally care for with this one.

    Thank you guys, you will always have my gratitude for the work you put into this weekly release list.

    What exactly are the sources you use for putting these lists together @Whom? I assume you follow blogs and other news sites to add to this list every week?
    I found a guide a week ago with a lot of blogs and so forth to help keep up, but i lost it. Typical me to have 100 tabs open doing 10 things at the same time.

    Been waiting for Amon Tobin´s new album, after his AMA on reddit i had an idea of what it would be like, i was pretty close in my assumptions. Listening to it now i kind of expected something like this. I still had hopes in my heart that he would go back to his roots a bit :(. I love his old jazzy stuff.

    Hillsong United - People (CCM)

    It´s rare i find pop/popish music that i like, this album is great!

      Primarily the uproxx list (that gets most releases that get traditional media attention) and the Genius list (which has some interesting obscure picks, usually how we get a lot of hip hop and k pop on here), but we also throw in things that have been being mentioned in the music communities we hang out in. When we get into the groove with this we might try to find more sources to throw into the mix, but right now it's still kinda slow work.

    I also highly recommend Kevin Abstract's new album if you're into Hip-Hop at all. He has this song call Peach that features a future international superstar name Dominic Fike. Seriously, if you haven't heard of fike yet you should go listen to his EP. That kid is going to take over the pop/hip-hop/R&B blend that is currently all over the radio.

    I also listened to the new Schoolboy Q album, it was ok. Not nearly as good as his previous work.

      Yeah I listened to the Schoolboy Q album, and there aren't many standout tracks to me. It's an album I'd put on when I want to listen to a rap album, but probably doesn't have much place otherwise. That said, I've always liked him (despite me not being one to listen to the genre too much) so I'll probably listen several more times to fully digest.

      Since you're the second top comment to mention King Gizzard, I felt obligated to have a listen. I like it, I'll definitely have to start digging into their discography!

    While I was working on song.linkifying this weeks albums, I listened to The Cranberries - In the End. All Over Now had me tearing up. RIP Delores, your hauntingly beautiful music and lyrics got me through a very tough time in my youth... and your courage in openly discussing your addiction and mental illnesses helped me further still. You will be missed. :(

    And [have also now] listened to Rodrigo y Gabriela - Mettavolution. It's fantastic, as expected. If two incredibly talented guitarists shredding it up together flamenco style sounds good to you, be sure to check them out. Their NPR Tiny Desk concert and KEXP session are both amazing and worth watching too IMO:
    Rodrigo y Gabriela: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
    Rodrigo y Gabriela - Full Performance (Live on KEXP)


    Some other albums that caught my eye:

    Kiefer Sutherland - Reckless & Me (Country Pop) || Song.link

    Hah... that can't be good, can it? edit: Nope, it's every bit as God awful as I thought it would be. :P

    Nick Murphy (AKA Chet Faker) - Run Fast Sleep Naked || Song.link

    Definitely going to have to listen to that. <3 Chet Faker. Gold is one of my favs.

    p.s. Rather sad note about the video for Gold; The roller skater with the green top was seriously wounded a few years ago when she was vacationing in Egypt and the bus she was traveling on got strafed by an Egyptian Military Apache helicopter. Her mother used to have a gofundme page up for her medical expenses, but for some reason I can't find it anymore... they must have shut it down recently.

    P!nk - Hurts 2B Human (Pop) || Song.link

    Pink has always been an incredibly guilty pleasure of mine, and I love her... same with Christina Aguilera and most 90s era boy bands. ;)

    p.s. Pink did a really cool video of her watching people perform covers of her songs, which is what turned me on to Davina Michelle... whose cover of "What about us" is insanely good.

    Sublime With Rome - Blessings (Ska Punk) || YouTube for "Light On" - for "Wicked Heart"

    I haven't listened to Sublime since Bradley Nowell died, so haven't heard anything with Rome Ramirez singing for them... and I have to say, after listening to those two singles I am not inclined to, either. Talk about bland. :/


    p.s. Thanks again for continuing to do this, @Whom... these have been the highlight of my week and I have discovered so much awesome music I wouldn't have without them. :)

      Kiefer's album is exactly what I expected. Milquetoast Garth-brooks era country pop/rock. It'll probably sell a shitload of copies with his name recognition. :/

        IKR? It's so bad... and yet, like you said, it will probably still sell a crazy amount of copies on name recognition alone and the fact that it's country. Pop country is just the absolute worst and yet insanely popular, and I really, really don't understand the appeal of it at all. Bo Burnham nailed it, IMO.

          I don't give a shit about pop country but I've always found it weird that some people need to bash other genres just because you don't like it.

                Saying it's the absolute worst is a hyperbolic figure of speech, and very clearly everything I have expressed is an opinion. Have you seriously never called something "the absolute worst" before when you merely disliked it? Again I find that incredibly hard to believe and I really don't understand where this is coming from.

                And you don't have to read anything I write or take it as gospel.

                    Amarok, the person I was talking to about this... since they share a similar opinion and we were commiserating about a state of affairs we see as sad.

                    And "hivemind" is just another word for "people agreeing about something", which there is nothing inherently wrong with so long as dissenting opinions are not suppressed or unduly attacked, especially if said opinion hurts no one... which hating pop country does not. Not everything expressed here needs to be a debate, challenged, unique or contrarian, people are allowed to agree on things here even if it's a popular opinion.

                    I'm not trying to attack you.

                    Well it certainly came across as if you were attempting to.... but fine, I will take you at your word.

Doesn't matter what genre, a mass market trend will bring out the absolute worst of it. Kiefer's album reeks of that to me - cashing in on a trend. I don't begrudge him making the money, but I'm going to be listening to Izaak Opatz rather than him.

                              Hank 3 has a lot of good stuff. He seems to focus on the musicality of the genre rather than just creating white people soft rap which I feel like a lot of radio country is trying to be. He embraces a lot of different aspects of country, if you listen to Mississippi Mud it has a very different feel that Dick in Dixie. Most of the lyrics have that outlaw vibe.

                              I've always thought there's good music in (almost) every genre, you just need to be willing to look past the surface and find the quality stuff. I don't know much country so if you care to recommend some of the better stuff I'd like to check it out.

                                Sure can, although I mostly listen to Indie/Singer-Songwriter/Contemporary Folk, Bluegrass/Newgrass, Southern Rock and Alt/Progressive Country so my recommendations would mostly be limited to those genres... and I mostly listen to Live music too. But with that said, here are some of my favorites, off the top of my head and quickly copied from various playlists:

                                William Elliott Whitmore - Hell Or High Water (Live on KEXP)
                                Nickel Creek: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                The Civil Wars - You Are My Sunshine (Live) (that whole concert is amazing!)
                                Watkins Family Hour: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert (ft. Fiona Apple)
                                Shawn James // American Hearts (A. A. Bondy) | Wolf Sanctuary
                                Joseph: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                The Marcus King Band - "Where I'm Headed" (Live at JITVHQ in Los Angeles, CA 2018
                                Miley Cyrus - The Backyard Sessions - "Jolene"
                                The Oh Hellos: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                Kaia Kater: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                Ed Sheeran - Masters of War (Bob Dylan Acoustic Cover)
                                Joan Shelley: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                Sufjan Stevens - For The Widows In Paradise, For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti
                                Punch Brothers: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                Brother Bird - Landslide | OurVinyl Sessions
                                First Aid Kit - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song (Fleet Foxes Cover)
                                And speaking of Fleet Foxes, their self-titled Album is absolutely fantastic, I highly recommend it!
                                Johnny Cash - Hurt (Good Audio - HQ- High Quality)
                                You can't go wrong with Johnny Cash either.
                                Toledo - Knot | Sofar Boston
                                Listener - Wooden Heart
                                Jade Bird - "Uh Huh" | Black Box Sessions
                                Ray Lamontagne - Crazy (Gnarls Barkley Cover)
                                Haley Bonar: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
                                Andy McKee - Guitar - Drifting - www.candyrat.com
                                Shakey Graves - "Climb on the Cross" | Black Box Sessions
                                The Secret Sisters: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

                                And a few ones that I have submitted to Tildes too:
                                Old Salt Union - Here & Off My Mind (Jam In The Van - Live at Huck Finn Jubilee)
                                The Cleverly's cover Red Hot Chili Peppers "By the Way" (Jam In The Van - Live at Huck Finn Jubilee 2018)
                                Basia Bulat - Heart of My Own (album)<-- Canadian Folk <3 Basia

                                That should be enough to get you started hopefully. ;)

                                p.s. There was another recent topic with a lot of good recommendations for gothic country too.

                                  Cool to hear you were in Mass for a bit, and I just saw in the epic/pysonix thread that you're big into rocket league. My favorite game!

                                  Thanks again for the links, good to have a bunch of stuff to go through at work tomorrow 👍

                                    No prob... And yeah, Andy McKee is more contemporary folk than country but it still has a bit of that twang so I thought I would throw it in there for anyone else who checks out the list. I know...

I know you and I have talked about Candyrat and McKee a bunch before so it's not new to you. ;) And yeah, I saw that new vid from them. Their YouTube is a permanent "show all notifications" in the Bell for me. :P It was cool, but truth be told, the song wasn't really to my taste.

                                    p.s. What rank are ya in RL? I bounce back and forth between Champ I and II these days. Still can't quite make it to Champ III or Grand Champ yet. :(

                                      I'm a lowly platinum I. I've been playing for years but still more or less suck at the game lol. Still fun though!

    Shocked to see Bailen on this list! I've seen them a few times now. They have a really cool sound, that sort of reminds me of Simon and Garfunkel, America, and Fleet Foxes. Personally, I'll take...

    I've seen them a few times now. They have a really cool sound, that sort of reminds me of Simon and Garfunkel, America, and Fleet Foxes. Personally, I'll take their live performances on youtube over their album version, but I recommend to everyone to give them a listen!
