cover album of the best albums out today

After a calmer part of the year a lot of great new albums have been released today, check out our favourite ones below. And by the way: if you were interested in Susanne Sundfør’s new album Music for People in Trouble, the record was supposed to be released today but it was unfortunately postponed to the 8th of September.

Brockhampton – Saturation II

After the release of Saturation back in June, today Brockhampton have released its follow up called Saturation II and a third album is awaited for the end of the year, as founder Kevin Abstract hinted on Twitter. From their very first release the band demonstrated the music scene that they definitely are one of of the greatest contemporary collectives around and that they are able to produce some of the music of the year. We are sure that they will be able to keep up their level once again. Check out the official videos for ‘GUMMY‘, ‘SWAMP‘ and JUNKY‘.

EMA – Exile in the Outer Ring

Cover of EMA's new album Exile in the Outer Ring

Today EMA has shared the follow-up to her 2014’s The Future’s Void. Her experimental sounds mixed with punk and noise rock drew a lot of attention among her works, especially for her deceptive hints at pop styles. Exile in the Outer Ring will surely keep the boredom away. Check out the official video for ‘Breathanalyzer, ‘Down and Out‘ and Blood and Chalk‘.

Liars – TFCF

Today Liars released the follow-up to their 2014’s Mess. It is impossible to predict what they have reserved for us since their works have always been unpredictable. To be honest it is really hard to say what kind of music will be on TFCF, except the fact that another new crazy experimentation is surely on its way. The album cover says it all.

Buy/Stream: Itunes/Amazon/Spotify

TFCF Tracklist:
01. The Grand Delusional
02. Cliché Suite
03. Staring At Zero

Queens of the Stone Age – Villains

Cover of QOTSA's new album Villains

Queens of the Stone Age finally released their follow-up to 2014’s Like Clockwork. The album was preceded by two tracks ‘The Way You Used to Do‘ and ‘The Evil Has Landed‘ and from their very first listen it’s clear that the band has definitely left Stoner Rock behind forever moving towards a more pop sound.  The album is produced by Mark Ronson at his very first experience in this a role. All of this will make Villains a big novelty for sure!

Buy/Stream: Itunes/Amazon/Spotify

Villains Tracklist:
01. Feet Don’t Fail Me
02. The Way You Used to Do
03.Domesticated Animals
04.Fortress
05.Head Like a Haunted House
06.Un-Reborn Again
07.Hideaway
08.The Evil Has Landed
09.Villains of Circumstance

The War on Drugs – A Deeper Understanding

Cover of The War on Drugs' new album A Deeper Understanding cover

The follow up to 2014’s Lost in the Dream is finally here! The War on Drugs have already released four of the 10 tracks of A Deeper UnderstandingAnalyzing them it’s really hard to think that the band will add new elements to their style with this release, more likely they will continue to follow their classic folk-rock style strongly-influenced by artists such as Bruce Springsteen. Let’s see what they’ve prepared for us! Check the official video for Holding On‘, ‘Strangest Thing and ‘Pain‘.
