Top 5 Charts:

1.) (Sandy) Alex G – House of Sugar

Coming off his last record, Rocket — which was full of folk and Americana cuts, as well as that unmistakable Alex G sound — it felt like he could go absolutely anywhere with his next project, and rightly so. House of Sugar, although one track and about 4 minutes shorter than Rocket, feels like a very refined conglomeration of everything Alex G has released to this point.

2.) Electric Guest – Kin

Though Billboard has described Kin as an attempt by Electric Guest to “dive headfirst into the mainstream,” this new release does not compromise the group’s well-established sound. Kin is upbeat and groovy, reminiscent of the early 2000’s music scene in the best ways possible.

3.) Hovvdy – Heavy Lifter

There is something so heart-wrenchingly familiar about the feeling of wanting to escape your hometown, to move far away and never look back, and Hovvdy captures this feeling in an exceedingly unique way in their third full-length album, Heavy Lifter. Read Ji’s review of the album here!

4.) Wilco – Ode to Joy

For a band that is already on its 11th studio album, Wilco nonetheless does not fail to impress. Ode to Joy is a departure from many previous Wilco works; the album is more spacious and focuses more heavily on finding the joy in life, rather than simply facing its obstacles.


BROCKHAMPTON’s Ginger is somehow both raw and mature, a bit more melancholy than many of their previous works. The record is vulnerable, painting a picture of many of the very real issues the band’s members have personally experienced.
