Tame Impala: Lonerism

Tame Impala follow up their successful debut with songs of persistent devotion, turning the heavy-lidded repetition at their sonic core into a warming psychedelic mantra.


Grass Widow: Internal Logic

On their self-released third album, San Francisco’s Grass Widow fully realizes their haunting relentless sound, comprised of two main elements: pretty, folky harmonies and jerky, trebly post-punk instrumentation.


Beachwood Sparks: The Tarnished Gold

Beachwood Sparks are back after a decade, with The Tarnished Gold, which resumes as if no time had passed, a fitting statement for a band that recreates the sounds from a bygone era, when psychedelia and country music cross-pollinated at the end of the ‘60s.


Liars: WIXIW

Liars may change their sound from album to album—the new one is unsettling electronica—but they are consistent at one thing: being good.
