Caribou – Our Love

Caribou’s latest record is a bit of a concept album about the ups and downs of love.

SBTRKT – Wonder Where We Land

For his sophomore album, electronic music producer SBTRKT brings on more guests, more experiments, but somehow ends up with a less enjoyable album.

Iceage – Plowing Into the Field of Love

Danish post-punkers Iceage plow into the field of love with full force, backing up their longest set of songs yet with pianos, strings, and horns.

Shellac – Dude Incredible

The new Shellac album is decent, but falls disappointingly short of the reaction “Dude, incredible!”

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die – Between Bodies

Previously praised Connecticut emo revivalists The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have a new release out titled Between Bodies.

It’s a collaborative project that features a number of passionate spoken word performances from poet Chris Zizzamia. Sometimes the instrumentals underneath his words compliment him well, sometimes they don’t, but this is still a pretty good listen. Skip right to the song “Thanks” if you’re looking for a really wonderful climax! Give it a try via the widget embedded above.

Interpol – El Pintor

After an odd fourth album, Interpol returns to form with an incredibly safe record on El Pintor.

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.

Thrupence – “Silk”

A new track from Thrupence that truly lives up to its name: “Silk.” This cut comes from a forthcoming mixtape that’ll be dropping this November. You can stream another track from this forthcoming project as well via Bandcamp.

If you like your electronic music smooth and string-kissed, then hop on this. Nujabes and Portico Quintet fans should be on alert right now, too!

Busdriver – Perfect Hair

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