Albert Hammond Jr – Far Away Truths

At this point in time I’m more about new music from Albert Hammond Jr than The Strokes.  He’s been on a roll for a while.  His new album, Francis Trouble, is due out March 9.  By the way, he’ll be at SXSW!

Courtney Barnett – Nameless, Faceless

Courtney Barnett’s new single doesn’t immediately grab you like Pedestrian At Best (or even Avant Gardner) , but I still think it’s a gem.  I just love the way she writes and sounds.  Her sophomore album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, is due May 18.

Beach House – Lemon Glow

There’s a new Beach House album coming in 2018, but it doesn’t have a title or an actual release date.  There’s a single though, and it’s really good.  I dig that it carries more of a punch than their usual sound.

Frank Ocean – Moon River

I could listen to Frank Ocean sing web addresses off of Google.  My bias aside, this is a good cover.

Sophie – Faceshopping

This new single from Sophie is aggressively good.  Put on headphones and get a little weird while it dominates you.
