pearl jam
Republic

This is a fretful and ferocious record, lyrically much preoccupied with things having ended or appearing about to end, but musically much more blaze of glory than any kind of funeral pyre. Producer Andrew Watt helps the grunge stalwarts with what he did for The Rolling Stones last year: roll years back while avoiding parody.

bill frisell
Blue Note

Orchestras documents two inspired concert-hall engagements arranged by Michael Gibbs. Sweeping orchestration evoking landmark film scores and Gil Evans alike move nimbly within and around the trio’s telepathic rapport, and Frisell’s shimmering trademark tone melds gorgeously with symphonic strings and brass.

cloud nothings
Pure Noise Records

No need to fix what isn’t broken. For a decade plus, Cloud Nothings have delivered catchy, energetic songs without getting stale or repetitive. There’s something to be said for their ability to continue delivering hook-filled records with intelligent and heart-rending lyrics; and their latest installment, Final Summer, keeps that streak alive.

rennee rapp
Interscope

Based on the 2018 Broadway musical adaptation of the 2004 film. Features songs from the movie’s stars including Reneé Rapp as Regina George, Angourie Rice as Cady Heron, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis ‘Imi’ike, Avantika as Karen Shetty, and more. Includes “Not My Fault” by Rapp and rap superstar Megan Thee Stallion.

Pure Noise Records

On Coup de Grace, Connie Sgarbossa’s most private and innermost thoughts are funneled through the lives of fictional characters within a noir-inspired world. Sgarbossa’s hold nothing back attitude combined with the band’s intensely dark blend of sasscore, punk, mathcore and metalcore, makes for profound and devastating listening.

high on fire
MNRK Heavy

Cometh The Storm is an absolute monster of an album, a ten-ton aural leviathan, a thundering colossus in audio form, the sonic equivalent of an end-times harbinger of death from the second the listener hits 'play' and is walloped into consciousness to the last dying strains of the final track as everything fades to black.

What's New 4-12-24

Maggie Rogers - Don't Forget Me Vinyl
Capitol

Don’t Forget Me’s 10 brisk, lightly rocking songs evoke the radio-friendly pop-rock of early-2000s Sheryl Crow or Jewel while sometimes looking further back to ’70s soft rock a la Carole King. It’s a breezy, contemplative soundtrack for the open road that captures the freedom of hitting the pavement and the dizziness of moving on.

Necrot - Lifeless Birth
Tankcrimes

Lifeless Birth is a vision of what metal can be and do in 2024. It tears down old barriers and keeps those traditional elements that make it stronger while pivoting fluidly between technical intricacy, progressive poise and all-out brutality. Necrot continue their ascent to the forefront of American aural extremity.

Lizz Wright - Shadow
Virgin Music

Through an inimitable voice that the New York Times touts as, "a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather," acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Lizz Wright sings with a soaring reflection of the cultural fabric of America.

Mark Knopfler - One Deep River
Blue Note

One Deep River offers an unstoppable flow of future Knopfler (Dire Straits) classics, with their customarily learned lyrics and refined guitar textures. They draw on a lifetime of genre-crossing ingredients and influences in blues, folk, rock and beyond, and as usual, reveal their charms with unhurried grace and depth.

Verve

An album that speaks to “the grand sadness in life,” Revelator finds Houck further mastering his unique blend of ragged, experiment-y classicism intertwined with ethereal, lachrymose atmospherics. Houck sings from a woozy, worn headspace, but leads us to a place where dreams and reality mingle.

Columbia

The second album since the departure of in-house expert Rostam Bastmanglij, Only God Was Above Us feels like a record made by a band once more comfortable in their skin while throwing in some pleasing new tricks. It’s a bold exploration of new sonic and lyrical territories, striking a balance between gritty realism and enduring hope.

New West Records

Joe Pernice has been writing for a long time—most of his life, in fact—and has crafted a remarkable catalog that boldly reinterprets and recasts classic American pop. Who Will You Believe may be his most moving and nuanced album yet, showcasing a beautiful balance between sadness and moments of solemnity with warm humor and camaraderie.

City Slang

Much of Sinkane's previous releases, it resists genre. It's pop. It's funk. It's electronic. It blends the gritty punk newness of a 70s and 80s New York with the steady, foundational soul of the rhythms of his native Sudan. It moves and travels through worlds and eras, through emotion and healing in, as Gallab puts it, his "love letter to Black music.”

Nonesuch

While making Ohio Players, The Black Keys were also DJing dance parties in cities around the world, spinning 45s from their own eclectic and growing collections. The spirit of those parties infused Ohio Players’ DNA. “What we wanted to accomplish with this record was make something that was fun,” says Patrick Carney.

Rounder

With her sophomore album Mantras, Pruitt looks inward to explore such matters as gender identity, self-compassion or the lack thereof, and the struggle for peace in times of chaos and uncertainty—ultimately arriving at a body of work that speaks to the strength in undoing harmful self-beliefs and fully living your truth.

alt_text
Strngr Recordings

Sonically bold and ambitious, fiercely literate and imagistic, these songs dance around their theme, flowing through peaks and troughs of fervent psych-pop. It’s the singular work of a group of musicians whose confidence and abilities have not only scaled the heights of their ambitions but outstripped them. Luck has little to do with it.

alt_text
Metal Blade

On The Tide of Death and Fractured Dreams, Ingested expand its creativity without sacrificing the ferocity that make it one of the most impressively destructive, technical death metal bands on the scene. This is proof that once Ingested sniff out a trail of musical blood, they ravenously follow it until they've uncovered a festering feast.
