Moving a little slower this morning thanks to a rowdy evening celebrating St. Patrick? Ease into the work day with some new music!
This week sees the release of new albums from Black Lips, The War On Drugs, Tycho, and more, so check out the full list of albums that have us excited this Tuesday, and be sure to let me know in the comments what you’re listening to today!
Black Lips – Underneath The Rainbow
This rambunctious Atlanta four-piece is back with their seventh studio album, but does it live up to the standard set by its predecessor, Arabia Mountain? Check out David’s review of Underneath The Rainbow to find out.
Foster the People – Supermodel
Can these LA locals avoid the sophomore slump and produce a single as catchy and beloved as “Pumped Up Kicks”? Fans can find out today with the release of Supermodel.
La Dispute – Rooms Of The House
Written in a cabin in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula over the course of a month, this new album from La Dispute is the first to be released via the band’s own label, Better Living. Like what you hear? Then catch the band at The Echoplex on March 27th.
Perfect Pussy – Say Yes To Love
This Syracuse punk band, which was one of Jay’s Top Five Rising Artists for 2014, attempts to live up to that distinction with the release of their debut album today.
Sisyphus – Sisyphus
This collaboration between Serengeti, Son Lux, and Sufjan Stevens (formerly known as s/s/s) releases a self-titled album partly inspired by the art of Jim Hodges today via Asthmatic Kitty.
Skrillex – Recess
With very little notice, the king of dubstep-inspired EDM is back with a new full-length studio album today.
Taking Back Sunday – Happiness Is
Currently on a co-headlining tour with The Used, TBS drops their sixth full-length album this week, and fans in LA have two opportunities to catch them at The Palladium: March 19th or March 27th.
The Coathangers – Suck My Shirt
All-female trio releases its fourth full-length today via Suicide Squeeze Records, and fans in LA can catch a live performance of the new album’s tracks when the group opens for Black Lips at El Rey Theatre this Friday, March 21st.
The War On Drugs – Lost In The Dream
LAmb’s Sarah Bellman calls the Philly rockers’ highly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s Slave Ambient “an utterly beautiful psychedelic explosion.” Check out her full review, and if you can snag tickets, be sure to catch one of their two sold-out shows at The Troubadour next month.
Tycho – Awake
Scott Hansen (the artist better known as Tycho) offers up his second LP for Ghostly International today, and in his full review of the album, LAmb’s Marcus Slater calls it Tycho’s “best effort yet.”
