For Fans Of: Broken Social Scene x Architecture in Helsinki, handclaps and tambourines.

 

Gym Class Heroes

The Papercut Crhonicles II

(Fueled By Ramen)

Sounds Like: The reigning kings of rap metal (take that, Papa Roach!) raise the low bar with their fourth using guests like Oh Land and Adam Levine to surprising effect.

Free Association: How many teens would be deeply bummed if this genre went away?

For Fans Of: Cobra Starship x Bruno Mars, Fall Out Boy x Buck 65, chest tattoos, lip piercings.

 

Owen

Ghost Town

(Polyvinyl)

Sounds Like: Owen is Mike Kinsella, the Chicago emo married dad behind Owls and Joan of Arc; his sixth solo LP goes darker, quiet, stringsy and a little melancholy.

Free Association: Sleepless nights with a screaming baby will take you to weird places.

For Fans Of: American Football, Elliot Smith x matt pond PA + Iron & Wine, sad dad rock.

 

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

(Mercury)

Sounds Like: The elder Gallagher’s first post-Oasis solo effort is a reflection of the brothers’ dynamic; Noel was always the stiffer, more disciplined one and it shows here.
