New Music to Look Forward To

October 14

Conor Oberst – Ruminations

The Bright Eyes frontman will release his first solo album in two years. The last album Oberst worked on was with his punk influenced group Desaparecidos. With Ruminitions, he returns to the sound that Bright Eyes fans are used to. Many of the album’s tracks are driven by piano and acoustic guitar. This is a must listen for old school Oberst fans.

Dillinger Escape Plan – Dissociation

Kings of Leon – Walls

Moby and the Void Pacific Choir – These Systems Are Failing

Much of Moby’s latest project brings in more of an influence from rock or punk than electronica or house. Anyone who knows Moby shouldn’t be surprised, considering his history with The Vatican Commandos. With several tracks already released as music videos, listeners can check out a good chunk of this album before it hits the stores.

NxWorries – Yes Lawd!

Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge team up to form the hip hop group NxWorries. The sound is a mixture of jazz influenced instrumental hip hop, reminiscent of Flying Lotus or Kaytranada, and the smooth flow that has given Anderson .Paak a good amount of credibility in hip hop lately.

Spirit Club – Slouch

Tanya Tagaq – Retribution

Throat singing isn’t usually the first thing listeners put on the stereo, but with Tanya Tagaq, younger audiences are being introduced to an ancient form of performance. Tagaq combines the traditional singing style with electronic instruments and guest musicians. The new album includes a rap from fellow Canadian, Shad. Tagaq, an Aboriginal native of Canada, has been nominated for Juno awards, the 2014 Polaris Music Prize, and has won numerous Aboriginal music awards.
