Give em’ a shot
Show Me the Body – Dog Whistle
The sophomore album from New York heavy hitters Show Me the Body came out in late March. With its heavy drums and bass, and piercing banjo (yes, banjo) riffs, it may very well stay on my album of the year list.
Top Tracks: Camp Orchestra, Arcanum, Madonna Rocket
Stella Donnelly – Beware of the Dogs
The Australian singer-songwriter delivers a hilariously blunt and personal listen with her album Beware of the Dogs. Great vocals and great instrumentation make this album worth your while.
Top Tracks: Old Man, Beware of the Dogs, Tricks
Weyes Blood – Titanic Rising
The American singer’s fourth album sees a gorgeous baroque pop record with melodies that’ll stay stuck in your head for weeks.
Top Tracks: Andromeda, Something to Believe, Wild Time
Knocked Loose – Mistakes Like Fractures
While it may be an EP in the meantime (following in the footsteps of the band’s 2016 album Laugh Tracks), Knocked Loose delivers on this three-song mosh-fest. A must-have if you need some high energy songs in your life.
Top Tracks: Mistakes Like Fractures, Slings and Arrows (Cover Version), All My Friends
La Dispute – Panorama
La Dispute do what they do best and then some on this new album. Leaving more room for experimentation, the band still manages to deliver a personal, heart wrenching record with great riffs and shining moments throughout.
Top Tracks: FULTON STREET I and II, ANXIETY PANORAMA, FOOTSTEPS AT THE POND
Aries – WELCOME HOME
The music YouTuber delivered his debut, and it quite literally blew me away. It is by far one of the best emo rap albums I’ve ever heard, and has incredible production.
Top Tracks: SAYONARA, RACECAR, CAROUSEL
