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.
Mordechai – Khruangbin
Per NME –
With a whirlwind of success elevating the band to greater heights, you might expect a rushed third album – but Khruangbin neatly surprises with ‘Mordechai’. Underscored with memories and love for Houston, a city that shaped the trio, ‘Mordechai’ is the album on which they allow us further into their mysterious world.
Women In Music Pt. 3 – Haim
Per Pitchfork –
The third album from the trio is far and away their best. Intimate, multidimensional, and wide-ranging, the songwriting shines with personality and a great curiosity for melody and style. In interviews, each sister has described a personal trauma that she brought to the studio. Alana has spoken of the grief she suffered when a best friend passed away at age 20, and Este has talked about the low points of living with Type 1 diabetes. Most felt is Danielle’s deep depression; she traces its origin to when her partner (and co-producer) Ariel Rechtshaidwas diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2015.
Everythings Strange Here – G Eazy
Per CULTR –
The album has just one feature, being ‘All The Things You’re Searching For’ with Kossisko and new girlfriend Ashley Benson – who G-Eazy did a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ with just a couple of months ago. G-Eazy described the album as a “ten song project that encapsulates my mindset and creative inspiration over the last few months.” Highlight of the album is G Eazy’s cover of the David Bowie track, Lazarus.
The Last of Us 2 Soundtrack
Per HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience –
Composer Gustavo Santaolalla picks up right where he left off in the first Last of Us game. The mournful guitar strums and longing in the score is a perfect addition to the franchise. The score creates a symphonic background of a world that has endured so much from an apocalyptic outbreak. It’s no wonder the composer has been hired for the upcoming HBO live-action Last of Us series.
Come back next week for a fresh batch of new music Friday picks only on the HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience!
