The Albums You Need to Know About Every Week
This is a big week for fans of dancing and froliking in the summer sun. The newest efforts from Hot Chip, Jukebox the Ghost, Stepdad, and The Tallest Man on Earth will surely help to soundtrack your parties over the next few months with just the right amount of noisy fun.
STEPDAD – WILDLIFE POP
Making a play to for the most spun album of the summer, Stepdad’s (@fancystepdad) debut full length combines the best of electro and pop for perhaps the sunniest album of the season. Wildlife Pop promises to be the perfect name for the record, one that swirls and whirls just like any good summer dance party.
JUKEBOX THE GHOST – SAFE TRAVELS
Long time Wild Honey Pie favorite’s Jukebox the Ghost (@jukeboxtheghost) are back with another album full of pristine pop gems. Their delicate and catchy melodies are practically made for serious repeat listening, and we can’t wait to finally throw the record on rotation.
THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH – THERE’S NO LEAVING NOW
There are a million reasons to love The Tallest Man on Earth (@tallestman): his gorgeous melodies, his intricate lyrics, his hauntingly lovely voice just to name a few. With his newest effort, the Swedish song-smith takes his folk inspired tunes into a new, and happier, direction. While we love wallowing in the beauty of his previous music, we’re excited to celebrate his mellow joy as well.
HOT CHIP – IN OUR HEADS
Is there any band more suited for summer than Hot Chip (@hot_chip)? Their dance floor friendly rhythms and light vocals are the only thing needed to make even the electro haters groove. Their fifth album promises to be perfect dance-pop, like all of their others of course, with just enough interesting sounds to make it good listening as well.
POP ETC – S/T LP
After realizing that their band name was actually an offensive word for “gay” in Europe, The Morning Benders transformed into the very appropriately named POP ETC (@popetcetera). While the band’s sound has changed along with their name, they’re still delivering great music. Once you let yourself dig into this record, you’ll truly begin to love what it has to offer.
