Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of September 1, 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: LCD Soundsystem – “American Dream”

American Dream

Genre: Post-Punk/Electronic // Label: DFA Records/Columbia

Background:

American Dream is LCD Soundsystem’s first album in seven years, following 2010’s This Is Happening.  Featuring the band’s most vibrant and colorful album artwork to date, American Dream also feels warmer and more expansive than past records.  A lot of the tracks, especially the lead single ‘Call The Police’, seem to be heavily channeling James Murphy’s inner David Bowie/U2.  In a year filled with high-profile comebacks, LCD Soundsystem stands proudly near the top of the totem pole,  boasting a must-hear record for fans of electronic-influenced rock and post-punk.

Listen to “Call The Police”, below:

It's not as impressive as last week, but there's still plenty of quality music to delve into here.

i hope Mogwai got better because that cover is too good for a mediocre album
