John Grant – Grey Tickle, Black Pressure
Grant’s new album kinda sounds like if Beck had decided to stick with the funky surreal route after Midnite Vultures. With ‘sick’ beats and real weird lyrics, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure is a cool new album that’s sure to please anyone who misses the time when really strange stuff was popular (i.e., the 90s) or people who aspire to one day wear green sweaters and own a tons of cats.
RIYL: Midnite Vultures era Beck, The Czars, Magnetic Fields The Beastie Boys
Tracks: Voodoo Doll, Grey Tickles Black Pressure, Guess How I Know, Disappointing
Balthazar – Thin Walls
Dark pop seduction in a bottle. Made with the help and experience of Jason Cox (Gorillaz) and Ben Hillier (Blur and Depeche Mode producer). Vocal styles of two leads balance nicely, like a slurring Jekyll and reserved Hyde. The whole album is about when it’s late and you’re horny like wolf.
RIYL: Arctic Monkeys, Lana Del Rey, Stand of Oaks, Lou Reed
Top Tracks: Decency, Then What, Nightclub
