Published Jan 17, 2012This Tuesday offers up another fine selection of new releases to keep you going through January. Head over to our Recently Reviewed section to read full reviews of the following highlights.
First up, Rick Ross revels in the spoils of fast cars and cashmere socks (really) on his new mixtape, Rich Forever. A prelude to Rozay's delayed upcoming album, God Forgives, I Don't, Rich Forever sees the Teflon Don team up with the likes of Drake, Nas, Diddy and Birdman to create an at times spectacularly shallow but brilliantly produced record that's well worth a listen.
Avant-pop maestro Matthew Dear delivers his "most cohesive cut yet" with new EP, Headcage. The New Yorker joined forces with Swedish production team Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid (Fever Ray, Glasser) on this atmospheric follow-up to 2010's murky masterstroke, Black City.
Then we have Toronto duo Jokers of the Scene (aka DJ Booth and Chameleonic), who have released a solid, style-shifting EP with J0T5. Look out for a remix record, J0T5 RMXD EP, later in the month.
If you like your tunes long and brutal, check out British band Detrimentum's unrelenting slice of death metal on sophomore album, Inhuman Disgrace.
And finally, San Francisco's genre-defying four-piece Loma Prieta delight with their dynamic new full-length, I.V. "A masterpiece of kinetic emotion," I.V. receives the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week.
