Published Sep 24, 2013As of today (September 24), we've entered into a post-Nothing Was the Same world. Debates about the colossal figure that is Drake will persist, but whether Drake is your thing or not, you'll be sure to find something up your alley in the latest edition of our New Release Roundup. Check out new releases from Drizzy and others below, then head over to our Recently Reviewed section for more reviews.
As mentioned, Drake's Nothing Was the Same continues his world domination. On his third full-length album, the TO rapper offers a challenging set of songs that might just help squash ongoing debates about his authenticity.
Danish electronic music producer Trentemøller refuses to be pinned down to a single genre on solid third LP Lost, while hip-hop duo Tanya Morgan introduce a welcome change of pace on their Beatles-nodding latest album Rubber Souls.
Next up, L.A.-based punks Touché Amoré have released perhaps their most cohesive album to date with the excellent Is Survived By, though to pin the band down as a "hardcore" act would be an oversimplification at this point.
Finally, Mazzy Star have ended a 17-year hiatus with the release of fourth studio album Seasons of Your Day. The album represents a solid return for the California band, offering more of the hypnotic dream pop for which they've earned a reputation, as though they haven't missed a beat in all those years.
