1. Miguel, War & Leisure
In a year that’s seen post-hardcore legends At the Drive In and Quicksand release their first albums in decades, of course Glassjaw‘s third album is finally out — 15 years since their last endeavor, Worship And Tribute. Channeling their inner Faith No More, the Long Island rippers Material Control is a beast of a return album. Dig in.
3. Sports Team, Stanton
4. Four Tet
Fresh off his new album ‘New Energy’, Four Tet drops two brand new cuts, each with unpronounceable titles made up of symbols, which makes complete sense given the experimental, yet RAD, tone of each track.
5. Thunder Jackson, Guilty Party
Thunder Jackson is a duo of L.A. transplants (one originally from Oklahoma and the other from the south coast of Wales) formed after a random encounter in a taxi cab. Their debut single ‘Guilty Party’ features snappy beats, funky guitars, and popping vocals.
