Friday New Music 5/15

It’s Friday! Can you believe its Friday again? Sure you can. There’s of course new music! And this week there’s new music I’m real excited about – Charli XCX is releasing her “4th” album, written and recorded during her time in quarantine. Without digging too much, it looks like the heavy collaborative threat was a bit of a red herring, as these look like 11 all new songs with her the solo performer. Give it a listen if you want to know what Sloot, Bresson and I are shouting about for the next few months.

We’ve also got the fifth album from Perfume Genius that I’m incredibly excited for. I haven’t heard any of the singles off it yet, but, he’s always appointment music for me. His last album No Shape was one of the bests of 2017 and I cannot wait to hear this one as well. There’s also a new Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, which, honestly is super underrated as far as band names go – it rules. I loved the hell out of Thao’s last album, and “Bag Of Hammers” is legit one of my favorite all time songs. Very excited to hear this one too.

New stuff as well from Retirement Party (lo-fi indie-rock stuff) that I’m looking forward to, a new Jason Isbell, something new from The Magnetic Fields, plus a ton more. Here’s a fuller list, borrowed gently from Consequence of Sound. Tell me what you’re excited for, what’s good, what isn’t and anything else – enjoy!
