Don’t forget to check out our weekly playlist below. Enjoy!


Elbow, Audio Vertigo (Polydor): Critics are calling the UK rock band’s 10th studio effort one of their best in years. According to the band’s frontman, the album was “built from “gnarly, seedy grooves created by us playing together in ‘garagey rooms’ ” and is both more direct and sonically varied by purpose than its predecessor.”






Gossip, Real Power (Columbia): The indie rockers return with their first album in 11 years. The album finds the band reuniting with producer Rick Ruben, who helmed their 2009 breakthrough. 







The Jesus and Mary Chain, Glasgow Eyes (Fuzz Club): The Scottish alt-rockers return with their eighth studio effort, imparting the same “no rules” approach to writing and recording that made them an influential force since the 1980s. 







Boris & Coaltar of the Deepers, hello there (Dog Knights): Two of Japan’s heaviest rockers cover each other on this collaborative album.








Brodequin, Harbinger of Woe (Season Of Mist): The Tennessee-based death metal band release their fourth studio album, their first full-length in nearly two decades. 







Snuff, Off On The Charabanc (Sbam): The 80s UK punks return with a half-electric/half-acoustic set that frontman Duncan Redmonds calls a “journey,” saying “The first half is a party, a celebration of life’s good times. But then, as the record progresses, the mood changes. It’s about facing up to the inevitable, about looking death in the eye.”






The Veronicas, Gothic Summer (Big Noise): The pop-punk Australian sister duo release their sixth studio album, which is produced by Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann and aims to shine “a light on the truth beneath pop music’s shimmering surface.”
