    2018's first big release weekend has arrived! There's something in store for everyone, so let me present some highlights:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    LPX – Bolt in the Blue EP
    Lizzy Plapinger's solo project with a rawer (and frankly more convincing) sound than we've known from MS MR.


    Skott – Stay Off My Mind EP
    Four brand new songs from the Swedish siren Pauline Skött. (I saw her live the same day as Janice and Sabina Ddumba! Good times.) Catch her supporting MØ on her UK tour in a couple of months.


    Stefflon Don – Hurtin' Me EP
    Don't sleep on one of the UK's most promising rappers and singers!


    Sylvan LaCue – Apologies in Advance
    A concept album from the Floridian rapper, centered around confronting one's emotions.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Børns – Blue Madonna
    I'm not sure who this guy is but he's got a lovely duet with Lana on this album so it's probably worth a spin.


    Camila Cabello – Camila
    The (Half of His Dick Is In) Vagina hook girl releases a solo effort.


    Francesca Michielin – 2640
    Italy's Eurovision 2016 entrant and @Kuhleezi's & @NecessaryVoodoo's fave comes back with a new album. If the singles are any indication, it should be a great listen even if you don't understand any Italian.


    K. Forest – When It's All Said and Done EP
    Chilled-out soulful vibes from Toronto.


    Young Dreams – Waves 2 You
    Lovely indie pop from Norway.




    Also out today:
    Anderson East – Encore
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Wrong Creatures
    Black Veil Brides – Vale
    Cosmo – Cosmotronic
    Ezi – Afraid of the Dark EP
    Jinkx Monsoon – The Ginger Snapped
    Maxo Kream – Punken
    The Neighbourhood – To Imagine EP
    Noah Kahan – Hurt Somebody EP
    Savoy – See the Beauty in Your Drab Hometown
    Tonight Alive – Underworld

    Smh I was convinced Janice would be releasing her debut album today but it appears it's been pushed back to 2 February. So much for my gushing recommendation of the week ddd.

    Frankly I'd rather include releases with more... concrete dates. FAE's debut has been announced for January too but I'm still not including it until they get a move on and specify the exact day.
     
  11. Speaking of concrete dates, Pale Waves' All The Things I Never Said EP is out 16th March.

  15. It is indeed incredible. Much slower and more emotive than the singles would lead you to think, which is actually not a bad thing. There's a strong focus on lyrics, and that was also a nice surprise, considering I don't rate most Italian songs in that regard: they tend to be super abstract in order to sound "artistic", but scrub a little and underneath the surface there's little to no meaning. Francesca manages to completely bypass this by taking cues from the Lorde school: hyper-specific references grounded in everyday life, and a perspective that doesn't overlook her young age (she turns 23 next month), which transmit this special sense of intimacy. The lyrics are an integral part to this album, and if anyone needed some help with the language barrier just know my inbox is open!

    Not 2018 potentially turning into the year I make peace with Italian music! Today was the release date of another extremely exciting album. I think the Hipsterjustice crew in particular could find something to enjoy in this album. It's wall-to-wall excellent synth-pop bops (the production value is stellar throughout), so the language barrier is less prevalent. On the downside, there's male vocals, which I know don't go down as well round here (and I'm the first being guilty of that). Anyway, here's Cosmo's Cosmotronic, hope y'all enjoy:
     
  16. Me listening to Francesca's album:


    Also the LPX EP... Lizzy did that

I'll be adding Cosmo and Trembling Bells, plus I've just went through my neglected youtube subscriptions page and found a bunch of releases to add to the list (and one November release that completely passed me by but still will appear on my best of 2017 oop ddd).

    Metacritic are now listing it under "Feb 2018" ddd (it was "Jan 2018" earlier). Speaking of which, February is looking amazing already.
