Published Aug 07, 2012It the tunes on your summer playlist are starting to get stale, now is as good a time as any to check out Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section to find some fresh tracks. You can check out some of this week's highlights below, before digging into our full reviews.
First up, armed with a new frontman, Norwegian outfit Turbonegro are back at it with their ninth studio album, Sexual Harassment, delivering the same classic rock'n'roll stylings that have marked their work since their earliest days. Meanwhile, the fruitful collaboration between Willits + Sakamoto continues with Ancient Future, their second album of experimental piano-meets-drone compositions.
Meanwhile, DJ Kentaro's Contrast offers plenty of high-energy electronic-oriented tracks, featuring both instrumentals and vocal tunes, while British songstress Lianne La Havas saw her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough? drop in North America after its UK release back in July.
And wrapping things up, hardcore chameleons Unsacred do some genre-hopping on their new EP Three Sisters, while A Friend in the Blues sees Toronto blues fixture Danny Marks demonstrating the talents that have underpinned his long, and successful, career.
