8 Music Releases We’re Feeling this Week

And we’re back with another set of the 8 music releases we are feeling this week. This week, we’re featuring all albums, but it certainly was quite a task, because there are almost too many good albums dropping all around us. As we approach October, let’s take a listen to all the new albums that might make you feel a rainfall of cozy sadness, make you feel a little hyped up, get you feelin’ the good ole’ retro groove, or might simply just make you want to dance.

Let us know which of these you are jamming to, and what you think we should be listening to on twitter!

Public Access TVIn Our Blood

FOR THOSE WHO: can smell the forthcoming mess that is CMJ, and need to get into the lo-fi feel-good punk rock mood.

Tycho Epoch

FOR THOSE WHO: need their own backing soundtrack. This album can score a lot. Super pensive drives down memory lane, sad walks home alone from a failed date, and even some tunes to hype you up for the excited run towards your office building to look your boss in the eye and say “I QUIT!” before realizing you need that paycheck and are back to being down in the dumps. But don’t worry, there’s a track for that, too.

PixiesHead Carrier

FOR THOSE WHO: are craving time with an old friend who just gets you. You know? The Pixies will always be there for you.

The GrowlersCity Club

FOR THOSE WHO: are looking for that special album to play in the car, while you pick up that special someone, and take a long, road-trip like drive to that special somewhere to pick pumpkins and apples.

Nico JaarSirens

FOR THOSE WHO: couple things here; those who like to tap into the darker, more intelligent realms of music and get completely lost in memories that you haven’t summoned in a while, OR for those who like to pretend they live in a dystopian universe circa the fall of 1950’s and have a creepy high school homecoming to attend, specifically “History Lesson”.

Bon Iver22, A Million

FOR THOSE WHO: like to cry, a lot, and then power dance yourself out of it just to find yourself sobbing again as the next song finishes.

BanksThe Altar

FOR THOSE WHO: need a serious, sensual confidence boost in their morale. BANKS has got you, babe, chin up!

Francis and the LightsFarewell, Starlite!

FOR THOSE WHO: wanna keep the downtempo synth vibe going cause tis’ the season, but need a sonic pick-me-up.

What So Not Divide & Conquer Tour

What So Not has been spearheading Australia’s latest electronic revival with boundary-pushing bass since 2011. Hailing from Sydney, What So Not first dominated the city’s club circuit with dancefloor-ready heaters, including the window-shattering remix of Major Lazer’s “Get Free.” Fast-forward to today, and this globally-known artist has released records on Sweat It Out and Skrillex’s OWSLA, has appeared on the world’s grandest stages, and just dropped his latest EP, Divide & Conquer.

Divide & Conquer represents not only a culmination of knowledge and a collection of sounds gained throughout producer Emoh Instead’s travels, but also builds on the new foundation of What So Not’s sound. The release sees What So Not further discarding genres while employing a consistent narrative, resulting in his most thematic work to date. Listen to the full EP here.

The What So Not Divide & Conquer Tour is coming in full force to the live arena, with What So Not touring the project throughout the US. We’re hosting giveaways to his upcoming shows! Check out tour dates, purchase tickets, or enter for a chance to win tickets to WSN’s upcoming shows below.
