First up is an album we 'e really excited about, Tera Melos's second full-length, Patagonian Rats, which serves up a healthy dose of refreshing innovation. Bending the rules of what's expected in their musical field without sacrificing their creative qualities and fully satisfying our musical palates, this album earns them an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week.
Next, Stereolab front-women Laetitia Sadier is taking advantage of the band's hiatus to try out a solo career. The Trip smoothly transitions between various genres with the help of Richard Swift, April March and more. Also make sure to check out the refined sound of Fake Problems. Real Ghosts Caught On Tape is a combination of all good things from their previous albums.
If you had spoken to Flying Lotus a few months back, he would have told you he had no idea what his next round of productions would hold. Well, now we know, as Pattern & Grid World is out today. It features a much harder sound than his previous Cosmogramma, with a hint of cultural influence.
Cute, nerdy and Canadian are Meligrove Band, who have just the right combination of gloss and grit in their latest album, Shimmering Lights, which is also out today. While contrarily, Pasadena Napalm Division unleash a thrashing of "Texas all-scar thrash" with their self-titled release.
