Published May 15, 2012After another week of sifting through the newest music on the market, we've compiled a list of some of the week's latest album releases. Here are just some of the reviews up for grabs in our Recently Reviewed section.
To start, Best Coast are back with The Only Place, the sophomore effort from the Bethany Cosentino-led project. Will this one live up to expectations or do we have another case of the sophomore slumps? Read our review and find out.
Then there's Simian Mobile Disco doing what they do best, delivering satisfying electro tracks on their most recent offering Unpatterns, while Squarepusher has given us his 13th full-length in Ufabulum.
Next, Vancouver's Apollo Ghosts have released their anticipated Landmark album, which follows their critically acclaimed and Polaris Music Prize long-listed Mount Benson, and Montreal's Parlovr return with another slab of jangly indie pop with Kook Soul.
Finally, Leeroy Stagger and His Band produces some of his best music on his seventh album, Radiant Land, earning an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week, while A Whisper in the Noise craft artfully morose tunes on their fourth effort, To Forget.
