NSFW: j/k, New Music Friday is totally safe

It’s here! It’s HERE! NEW MUSIC FRIDAY! This means you have made it through another week, paid your taxes, and are ready to listen to the new tunes all weekend. You did pay your taxes right?

Ok, good.

Here is your reward for finishing the week!

The Raveonettes – 2016 Atomized

This album is unlike anything else on the list–mostly because of how it was released. In the same way that Modern Electric released one song a month in 2015, The Raveonettes gave their fans one song a month throughout 2016 and put it into this album. Because of the way it was recorded, this might be the bands most varied and unique album so far.

GAS – Narkopop

If you’re a writer (or anyone who has to type a lot), this might just be the perfect album to do it to. Without a single word, the album tells you a story, and writing to it feels epic. With synths, heavy drums, strings & woodwinds, and a cinematic feel, this ambient album will take you on a journey through time and space.

Imelda May – Life. Love. Flesh. Blood

Before we start this one, if you’re looking for the rock-a-billy Imelda May of the past, this isn’t it. Songs like Johnny Got A Boom Boom and her cover of Tainted Love are pushed to the side on this album to show an incredible singer/songwriter. In no way do I say this to downplay what she’s done, but this album is raw, vulnerable, and extremely sophisticated comparatively. This one’s going to resonate with a lot of people.

The Black Angels – Death Song

Take your favorite ’60s pop band, mix it with your favorite shoegaze band, and mix in some psychedelics and you’ve got this album. I feel like the only way to listen to this album at home is by throwing it on the record player, popping a hole in the album and letting the trippy cover art take you on a journey.

Woods – Love is Love

This new album was recorded over the two months after the presidential election. I’m not saying that has anything to do with the feeling behind the album, but… it has everything to do with when it was recorded. With songs like Bleeding Blue and Lost in a Crowd, it’s a beautiful album of introspection and unhappiness about what went down.

Joe Goddard – Electric Lines

This album is a straight happy chill fest. If you wanna get a smile on your face and good vibes, throw on this electronic pop album. My favorite songs on the album, Funk You Up & Music is the Answer, are a little more upbeat than the rest, but still so chillllll.

Mr. Mitch – Devout

Mr. Mitch might be known worldwide as a grime artist, this new album has much more in connection with R&B. It’s almost as thought the electronic side of the music has been put on the back-burner. Those who are looking for heavy dance beats might not like it, but if you’re looking for guest singers on 6 of the 12 tracks and a slow groove, you’ve found your album.

Jacob Banks – The Boy Who Cried Freedom

Five tracks aren’t enough, Jacob. If you want to hear what it sounds to revitalize soul music, this is the album to do it. Jacob’s got an electronic backbone in this soul-filled EP but you’ll hear the analog delights of electric guitar and piano throughout. I’m gonna have this on repeat.

Uneven Structure – La Partition

Where the metalheads at? When you sit down to listen to this one, don’t be scared. It’s not until the end of the third track that we get the growl that we’re craving. The album is also broken up interestingly with almost intermission tracks on song 4 and 8. This is the three act story arc you’re looking for, prepare your rock hand to raise.
