Happy April radio fans! March brought us plenty of new albums that we’ve been absolutely in love with over here at KJHK, although there’s plenty of new releases to look out for over the coming weeks.
If you want a refresher of some of our favorite tracks of the month, check out our playlist of our most spun tracks for the month of March HERE
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Sasami – Sasami
[From previous week] Sasami Ashworth has been making a name for herself as an exciting, versatile multi-instrumentalist as a member of a number of bands featuring Cherry Glazerr, Froth, and more. Ashworth more than proves her capability in leading the charge, crafting her own unique sound and aesthetic with her self-titled debut. The album doesn’t revolve one specific theme or feeling, but offers us a vivid insight to Ashworth’s thought processes & emotions.
2.) Hand Habits – placeholder
(From previous week) Meg Duffy’s guitar work has garnered major acclaim on collaborations with artists such as The War on Drugs, Mega Bog, William Tyler, among many others. With Duffy’s second album placeholder there’s an undefinable tenderness that echoes with every line sung and every note played.
3.) Karen O & Danger Mouse – Lux Prima
Lux Prima is the collaborative effort between two critically acclaimed and massively accomplished musicians. Despite each artist’s expansive catalog, it was impossible to tell what the two would come up with in the studio. The result is a journey led by Karen O’s impressive and timeless vocal abilities through a dense and luscious soundscape.
4.) Nilüfer Yanya – Miss Universe
Nilüfer Yanya, the UK-based songwriter, has made quite an impact with her debut album Miss Universe. Yanya has a unique vocal annotations that take each genre spanning track to a whole new level. Miss Universe is a stunning collection of beautifully written songs exploring a vivid world of art pop.
5.) Stella Donnelly – Beware of the Dogs
“Stella Donnelly is a self-proclaimed shit-stirrer from Perth, Australia ready to say what needs to be said. Beware of the Dogsbrings us 13 powerful tracks about abusive men, sexism, and the power of sticking up for yourself, others, and ultimately, what is right.” Read the full review written by Miranda Roberts HERE.
