Music is hard to keep up with. More than 50 albums can release in a month, and it can be hard to decide what to give your loving attention to and what let rest on the shelves. Below are a few albums coming out in upcoming days, weeks, months that we’d hate to see go unnoticed. These albums might not feature the biggest names in music (besides David Byrne), but missing these releases are guaranteed to make your ears sad.
A Thing Called Divine Fits: Divine Fits (Aug. 28)
Supergroups can sometimes be hit or miss. Monsters of Folk is a positive example. Diamond Rugs not so much, but Divine Fits brings together Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and Sam Brown (New Brown Turks). With Daniel’s precedence for perfection, A Thing Called Divine Fits has the possibility of topping year-end charts.
Failed States: Propagandhi (Sept. 4)
Punk rockers from Winnipeg, Manitoba return with its sixth studio album, it’s first since 2009′s Supporting Caste. If the title is any evidence, Propagandhi seems far from giving up its politically charged, metal-influenced brand of thrashing punk rock. Take a listen to the title track below.
Love This Giant: St. Vincent and David Byrne (Sept. 11)
Sometimes, musicians come together so naturally; it’s amazing, it’s never happened before. Hearing about Annie Clark and David Byrne’s union provoked a mixture of emotions — primarily excitement. The few songs that have been released thus far as only fueled the excitement. When St. Vincent and Talking Heads collide, it’s a beautiful thing.
Album Title Goes Here: Deadmau5 (Sept. 25)
Electronica musician Joel Thomas Zimmermann, more widely known as Deadmau5, releases his sixth studio album this September, metaphysically titled Album Title Goes Here. The cute cat-covered album features Zimmermann’s feline companion, Professor Meowingtons. No doubt the beginning of something amazing.
Cobra Juices: Black Moth Super Rainbow (Oct. 9)
Pittsburgh natives gear up to release their fifth studio album, which will drip with psychedelic electronic beats and spacey vocals. With the help of Eric Wareheim (of Tim and Eric Awesome Show. Great Job!), BMSR successfully launched a Kickstarter campaign, achieving almost triple of what they originally set out to acquire. Check at Wareheim’s promotional video and the album’s first single, “Windshield Smasher,” HERE.
Banks: Paul Banks (Oct. 23)
A well-known name in few circles, Paul Banks, lead singer of influential New York-based Interpol, will release his debut solo album this fall. The few released singles have pointed to an new direction for Banks developing a more electronic-synth sound then the quarter-note chugging which populates Interpol tracks. New direction or not, Banks looks like the beginning of something amazing.
