Bob Mould – Blue Hearts
On the heels of an optimistic Sunshine Rock comes a protest punk album as ferocious as anything in his career.
Grimes – Miss Anthropocene
Five years after Art Angels, Claire Boucher makes the album that brings that album together with Visions in a mostly dark, sometimes uptempo, and always compelling way.
Jeff Rosenstock – N O D R E A M
I came to his music late, with Worry., the first of three acclaimed pop-punk albums in a row. This latest wastes no time establishing itself with huge hooks and rough edges around lyrics both personal and political in nature.
The Beths – Jump Rope Gazers
Throwing Muses – Sun Racket
Bob Dylan – Rough and Rowdy Ways
Tiny Bit of Giant’s Blood – Gigantosaur
Soccer Mommy – color theory
Childish Gambino – 3.15.20
Porridge Radio – Every Bad
