Staff Picks: Best New Music

all genres

The Hotelier
Goodness


I don't know what I want, what I want's where I've been.
Thrice
To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere


There's nowhere I would rather be than here.
Ariana Grande
Dangerous Woman


you're a princess to the public but a freak when it's time
Marissa Nadler
Strangers


apocalypse now
Gorguts
Pleiades' Dust


Is Pleiades' Dust just 33-minutes of Colored Sands condensed into one song? Yeah, it basically is. Is that in its own right a wonderful thing? Absolutely.
Chance the Rapper
Coloring Book


Still coloring outside the lines.
Kevin Morby
Singing Saw


Alongside the campfire and under the stars, Kevin Morby gives us a folk album for the ages.
Deftones
Gore


Gore: an intimate dissection of the sound of Deftones and where it's headed/should go
Tim Hecker
Love Streams


Hecker applies his refined approach with a refreshed sonic palette, producing breathtaking, but also lackluster moments. The result is a unique, and ultimately worthy addition to his catalogue.
Moonsorrow
Jumalten Aika


Showing the little guys how it's done
Cobalt
Slow Forever


Comfortably Cobalt.
Sarah Neufeld
The Ridge


Watching the countryside
The Starting Line
Anyways


Like they never left
Kanye West
The Life of Pablo


Imperfectly perfect: The Life Of Kanye West
The Jezabels
Synthia


What’s a girl to do, standing in the spotlight?
Rihanna
ANTI


The clamor of the album's botched release is oddly fitting.
Megadeth
Dystopia


The best Megadeth has sounded in a long time
David Bowie
Blackstar


This isn't even my final form.
Lil Ugly Mane
Oblivion Access


The blues won't born in a bunker.
Oneohtrix Point Never
Garden of Delete


Kill me with your beautiful noise...
Grimes
Art Angels


Reworking her style, Grimes attempts anything but what we’d expect from her on this long-awaited release. It’s a pop album through and through – but does it work?
Laura Stevenson
Cocksure


It's no Wheel. But hey, it ain't trying to be.
Horrendous
Anareta


No longer just an OSDM revival act.
Joanna Newsom
Divers


the nullifying, defeating, negating, repeating joy of life
