Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – Tyranny

Fusing psychedelic pop, noise rock, lo-fi, and synth punk, this Julian Casablancas side-project is incredibly dense, diverse, and fun.

Milo – A Toothpaste Suburb

Hellfyre Club’s freshest, youngest face releases his first official full-length. Also, kudos on referencing my favorite Silver Jews song.

Busdriver – Perfect Hair

Art rap vet Busdriver drops one of his most exciting and confounding albums yet.

Aphex Twin – Syro

After 13 years of studio album silence, Aphex Twin makes a mild return.

Banks – Goddess

There are some great songs at the core of Banks’ Goddess, but the album’s potential gets lost in bland production and her underutilized vocal range.

NehruvianDOOM – Self-Titled

DOOM and Bishop Nehru drop a collaborative album that’s disappointingly short on stand-out material and chemistry.

Kendrick Lamar – “I”

West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar graces us with a new single.
