Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of January 27, 2017.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the art work so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


–Featured Release: Cloud Nothings: “Life Without Sound”

Image result for cloud nothings album art

Genre: Lo-Fi Indie-Rock // Label: Carpark Records

Background:

On Life Without Sound, Cloud Nothings drop their 4th LP with a slight shift in dynamics.  Their scrappy lo-fi brand of punk appears to now be incorporating a melodic indie-rock aesthetic, and the results are often breathtaking.  It won’t win over each and every diehard fan, but Life Without Sound still represents an important step outside of the band’s comfort zone that should help them earn more recognition while continuing to expand upon their sonic arsenal.  Don’t miss out on Hype Machine’s stream of the new record, while those of you looking for a quick sample can listen to ‘Modern Act’ below.

Listen to Cloud Nothings’ uncharacteristically melodic “Modern Act”:

There isn't a host of headline-worthy releases this week, but there are a lot of sneaky-good albums. Don't miss out on all the available streams this week either, there were a surprisingly high amount of them.

Fred Thomas album is definitely worth a spin

New P.O.S? Well hot damn

There's no way it'll match up to 'Emotional Mugger', but the new Ty should at least bring a couple jams. I'll probably check Priests, Ariel & Weyes, Migos, Delicate Steve, and maybe even that Bel Biv Devoe record. Morbid curiosity and such.

Definitely checking Japandroids and P.O.S. Thanks again for the heads up Sowing!

sad day when Japandroids isn't the featured release on sputnikmusic.com

Cool list of releases, need to check out Max Richter and Priests.

SowingSeason

Pitchfork has been hyping the hell out of Priests so I guess I'll have to see what they're about

Dewinged

Waiting eagerly for that new Cate Le Bon album. Julie Byrne's single is also a killer, lots of good releases this last week. Also, Kreator!

SowingSeason

Also for anyone who likes Paramore, that Greywind album is like a heavier rock version

Dewinged

Interesting...

Looking forward to Greywind. Loved the singles they have released so far. It's just straight forward female fronted rock music.

PistolPete
