Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of June 29, 2018.  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 artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release

High As Hope

Florence + The Machine: High As Hope
Genre: Indie-Pop/Alternative Rock
Label: Republic

Few artists have as recognizable of a voice as Florence Welch, one of the most respected frontwomen in alternative rock.  While Lungs and Ceremonials launched her career to stardom, wielding hits such as ‘Dog Days Are Over’ and ‘Shake It Off’, the more understated How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful still managed to keep the magic alive with prevalent acoustics and a slightly more uptempo atmosphere.  While no one is certain as to what tricks – if any – that High As Hope holds up its sleeve, you can count on Welch delivering another vocal masterpiece.  That alone makes High As Hope worth investigating, regardless of whether this album treads the same lighter path as its predecessor or returns to the booming, anthemic way of Lungs.

There's nothing thrash about that BFMV album. I thought they got it back together with their decent last release, but this new one is just garbage.

DropTune

Someone's trash is another's treasure. Just look at Kid Rock.
