Lots of great new albums are dropping today to get us rockin’ through the weekend! All of these albums and more are now streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
Give No FXK (single) MIGOS
Per Rolling Stone:
Like they command at the beginning of their live performance of the song, the bouncy track is an ode to flipping the bird, or in other words embracing an IDGAF attitude as the chorus relays. “We don’t give no fuck/Out in public, and we run shit,” the rappers proclaim in between their respective verses. “I got too many diamonds on, I look awesome.” In the accompanying video, the rappers are seen in a warehouse as cameras woozily film them in 360 degrees and lightning emits from their bodies in the futuristic visual.
Splid – Kvelertak
The hallmarks of KVELERTAK‘s sound do remain present throughout the first half of the record. Album opener “Rogaland” has infectious guitar work that matches some of the best moments from the band’s previous efforts. “Necrosoft” launches with a furious burst of fast-paced thrash before settling in as a bruising rocker. “Crack of Doom” and “Discord” are both stabs at English-language crossover tracks that are energetic romps with catchy choruses. “Bråtebrann” features a rhythm riff that evokes Megaforce-era METALLICA while layering in a little bit of sleazy Southern rock swagger.
No Time To Die (single) Billie Eilish
Per The Guardian:
Like her cover of Yesterday at the Oscars ceremony, No Time to Die sees Eilish taking a respectful approach. There’s a sense that this may all be part of a concerted effort to broaden her appeal to more mature audiences. It’s a moot point whether such an effort is really necessary – her multi-platinum debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? won praise from quarters that don’t ordinarily take much interest in music that appeals to teenage girls – but either way, the glitchy electronics of that record have vanished here, replaced by tasteful orchestration and nods to Bond tunes past.
Our Love (single) Incubus
Guitarist Mike Einziger told RADIO.COM Incubus has been writing and recording songs for a new album in between tour dates last year.
“We wanted to have kind of a collection of songs ready before we start diving into rehearsals for the upcoming Make Yourself tour,” Einziger said. “We have several new songs that are finished, and we’re working on visuals for them now, and we’re going to start releasing singles pretty soon.”
Honeymoon – Beach Bunny
It’s easy to brush her work off as emo Taylor Swift. But Trifilio writes songs that encapsulate the difficulties of being a normal young woman. Being stood up, left at prom, broken hearts, body image, dudes and the nonsense they make women go through. She sings those songs in a way that makes her devoted following feel she’s one of them, because she is. Trifilio isn’t some leggy, distant goddess, flanked by dancers. She’s a pop star now, with a grin, a guitar almost as big as she is and a genuine sense of “Whoa, that this is happening is nuts.” And she’s presenting personal, empathetic songs that are as catchy as they are genuine. “Honeymoon” might be the band’s first full-length, but it’s really a continuation of everything that’s come before, a continuing story being lived by Beach Bunny fans.
VFW Original Soundtrack
Composer Steve Moore has produced a synth heavy score that harkens back to Carpenter classics like Assault on Precinct 13. The score blends synth music with metal guitars to paint a picture of grindhouse gore lit in the hues of blue and red lights.
