Liam Gallagher, As You Were
Liam releases his first solo album (post Beady Eye) with no shortage of nods to his former band, Oasis, as well as The Beatles. Shocking. Superproducer Greg Kurstin (Adele) cowrote a handful of the tracks along with Andrew Wyatt (of Miike Snow.)
Alex Lahey, I Love You Like A Brother
On her slamming debut, Australia’s Alex Lahey throws down 10 succinctly crafted tracks packed with sing-along choruses, punk-pop dynamics, and endearing lyrics. This newcomer is a winner.
Kele Okereke, Fatherland
Kele Okereke’s latest solo effort, Fatherland, is his furthest departure from Bloc Party. The 35-year-old new dad has officially transformed into a mature artist with a penchant for sax solos, soulful jams and acoustic folk.
Dhani Harrison, In///Parallel
The son of late Beatles legend George Harrison marks his solo debut with a dark, abstractly gorgeous album, In///Parallel. Dedicated to late Beatles producer George Martin, the album is sonically marvelous and deserves repeated listens.
