Brand New Music
Christine and the Queens | Chris
Héloïse Letissier has, with her second album, created a subversive pop masterpiece. This mindbogglingly intelligent record sounds deftly effortless. This swaggy alter-ego delivers Letissier’s radio-ready pop that wraps themes like gender fluidity and female agency into slick hooks. This is pop with a purpose. Groovy, funky and sultry, Chris encourages freedom of form in both body and art.
Suede | The Blue Hour
Ambitious, towering, frightening, inspirational, but still focusing on themes straight from the gutter, Suede was never really a part of the oafish Britpop scene, and this dark dramatic new LP makes this more apparent than ever. Although it’s unlikely for The Blue Hour to win Suede many new fans, but it should convince those who were waning on the group that they’re back at the peak of their powers.
Metric | Art of Doubt
A staggering seven albums deep into their cataloge, Metric has solidified their own sound so much that Art of Doubt is undoubtedly their own. Stadium Rock, moody hooks, new wave spunk, this album is instantly memorable and one that shows the band’s maturity. This album is dense and explorative and is quite possibly one of their best yet.
