1.) Tame Impala – The Slow Rush

Tame Impala’s groundbreaking Currents was a hard album to follow up; this may be, in part, why The Slow Rush arrived a full five years later. Though it is debatable whether this album lives up to its predecessor, The Slow Rush is a dynamic album and a strong return for Tame Impala.

2.) Soccer Mommy – color theory

Soccer Mommy’s sophomore album somehow manages to be both brighter and darker than her debut, Cleancolor theory is an exploration in growth, encapsulating the young artist’s rise to indie fame and the struggles that have arisen as a result.

3.) King Krule – Man Alive!

Archy Marshall, the abrasively raw, smoky voice behind King Krule, has never shied away from anguish. His newest release, Man Alive!, might in fact be his most soul-wrenching release yet. On the record, Marshall grapples with an unexpected, looming fatherhood and his seemingly intrinsic desire to “kill good things.”

4.) Car Seat Headrest – “Can’t Cool Me Down” [Single]

In 2020, Car Seat Headrest is reinventing itself. This first single release from their upcoming album Making a Door Less Open (their first release in four years) marks a shift from their well-established sound within the realm of gritty rock to their new experimentation in electronic music.

5.) Grimes – Miss Anthropocene

In her fifth studio album, Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) returns with what might be her most astonishing collection of tracks yet. With her typically unsettling flair and alien-like sound, Grimes tackles topics such as climate change, the patriarchy, and death.
