Rick Ross

Rich Forever

(Maybach Music)

Sounds Like: The new don’s newest mixtape’s legit from start to finish with slick beats, variety of pace and solid guest spots from Nas, Kelly Rowland, Diddy and Drake.

Free Association: The girl that says “Maybach Music” 10 times each song has gotta be rich.

For Fans Of: Beanie/Freeway/Meek Mill, Jadakiss + Miami, stunna shades, cigars.

Bombay Bicycle Club

A Different Kind Of Fix

(A&M/Octone)

Sounds Like: The North London guitar-based indie rock outfit’s third LP after winning a Virgin Mobile battle of the bands is a hushed, lovely stroll through dancy twee.

Free Association: Totes inoffensive (if a little bland), but probably better in warm weather.

For Fans Of: Klaxons + Broken Social Scene, Metronomy + saddle shoes and knee socks.

Guided By Voices

Let’s Go Eat The Factory

(Guided By Voices Inc.)

Sounds Like: Pollard and Co. have truly reunited for the first time in eight years for a batch of new songs that pivot between jangle pop and angsty, angry post-punk sludge.

Free Association: Totally back in Oregon getting Pavement shoved down my throat.

For Fans Of: Galaxie 500 x the Breeders, Silver Jews + Magnetic Fields, the ’90s.

Himanchu (Heems from Das Racist)
