Staff Picks: Best New Music

all genres

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
Kauan
Sorni Nai


A story worth telling
Deerhunter
Fading Frontier


Quite possibly Deerhunter's most accessible album to date.
Panopticon
Autumn Eternal


a victorious effort that celebrates the process of change
Julia Holter
Have You In My Wilderness


oh she's been marooned, can anybody help her?
The World Is a Beautiful Place...
Harmlessness


We are as harmless as the thoughts in our heads.
Scale the Summit
V


Lots of new ideas, increasingly talented musicians, not quite enough melody or album flow.
Meg Myers
Sorry


This quirky, edgy & uncompromising talent has nothing to be sorry for.
The Wonder Years
No Closer to Heaven


For a band that released an album called The Upsides this sure is a downer.
The Dear Hunter
Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise


What will I know when the morning comes?
Amorphis
Under the Red Cloud


Finding harmony between the new and the old.
Caspian
Dust and Disquiet


The sounds of a post-rock band in full swing...
Destroyer
Poison Season


An Artiste for all Seasons
Ariadne
Tsalal


Six stages of purgatory.
Carly Rae Jepsen
E MO TION


Carly's new album has a more mature sound by going soul/R&B and ditching the more obtrusive synth elements.
FKA Twigs
M3LL155X


To my mind it's so sweet/And I wish you could see it
