Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of July 21, 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: Lana Del Rey“Lust For Life”

Lust For Life [Explicit]

Genre: Indie-Pop // Label: Interscope


Lana Del Rey’s career got off to a blazing hot start with Born To Die, and despite the subsequent cool off, she’s still a household name in indie-pop.  Ultraviolence was a sultry, dreamlike follow-up that ultimately proved worthwhile, but Honeymoon drew considerably less appeal from fans and critics alike.  Her style hasn’t changed much across the board, which might begin to explain the diminishing return.  With Lust For Life, she vies to recapture some of that initial luster.  For a taste of what is to come, check out her collaboration with The Weeknd below.

 Hear the title track, featuring The Weeknd:

Way early, but here you go.

oh damn, new Tau Cross? Welp, here I go jammin' again...

cant lana del rey just make music without culturally plundering from a bygone time

I might listen to Foster the People, NIN, Lana, and Tyler. I highly doubt ill enjoy any of them but I might get some joy from Tyler and NIN at the very least.

Meeting of the Waters and now this new Avey Tare album have me hoping AnCo's next album will be going in this acoustic, super experimental direction as well.

Still haven't listened to much AnCo but I'll be giving the Avery Tare release a go

Man where is Wintersun? This week gonna be best week in July. NIN, Wintersun, Foster the People, In This Moment and also Projected.

Btw please explain how Lana Del Rey is indie pop

most of the genre tags I just pull from this site, so I dunno

Citycop - The Same Stories that Never Get Old and Holy Fuck - Bird Brains also have release dates this coming friday

Checking out the two singles from that Cornelius release - weird as all shit but I'm really enjoying them...

@theBoneyKing need i remind you: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=276983&listid=174583

Also new Avey Tare is much better than I thought it would be

Tyler is all I need. Also, nice photoshop job on that Sara Evans artwork.

lana del rey is disgusting.
only release i care for on this list is NIN tbh

Still not a great week. Avey Tare and Tyler albums I have some hope for. Lana...she's a naff phoney but has the occasional tune. Then again, as she's got a gawky cute album sleeve she'll get a few cum stained 4+ ratings here no doubt, I'll give the dopey mare a spin, whatever. Nine Inch Nails, fine inch nails, fine finch nails, fine finch fails...I didn't really get much from the last EP but it's all listenable stuff from trent I guess, not expecting anything unexpected if you feel me. Foster the People are quite offensive if I remember correctly, sorta like MGMT mixed with Vampire Weekend...I'll listen to that for more Doof objectivity maintenance. Other than that - Chris Robinson is still alive and making music, good to know.

Is anyone here planning to review the new Foster the People album?
