It's that time! New Music Tuesday is here yet again to set your week off to just the right tune. What's in store this nineteenth of May? A few highlights: a buzz-generating newbie and a sixth album that's still getting listeners riled up.
Read on for some required listening.
Why Make Sense? by Hot Chip ($12)
This is UK-based Hot Chip’s sixth album, and it’s a doozy. Hip-hop and groove-infused dance and synth beats make for what will likely be summer’s go-to for late night, careening party beats.
The Desired Effect by Brandon Flowers ($10)
The second solo effort from Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers sees the band’s trademark 80s gleam in full effect: glossy synths, keyboard, and lucid vocals. It’s catchy enough.
Ratchet by Shamir ($13)
Buzzed-about genre-bending recording artist Shamir’s full length debut is weird, catchy, moody, and dance floor ready. He’s one to watch, for sure.
