Dr. Dog

Be The Void

(ANTI-)

Sounds Like: West Philly’s resident rock royalty’s seventh studio album is all killer, no filler—packed full of vibes and moods drenched in their psychedelic, ambling rockness.

Free Association: Creativity is alive and well and in Philly.

For Fans Of: Spoon/the Kinks x Destroyer + Local Natives, Baltimore Avenue funk.

Air

Le Voyage Dans La Lune

(Aircheology/Astralwerks)

Sounds Like: A bit of a return to form after a couple flops, the French duo’s score to the classic silent film is indeed a synth-heavy, dreamy electronic trip worth taking.

Free Association: Love 2 was so bland, this feels like Han Dynasty spice level 10.

For Fans Of: Boards of Canada x Daft Punk, Stereolab + New Order, cosmic skronk.

Graffiti6

Colours

(Capitol)

Sounds Like: A debut of dance-friendly and catchy summer music—an exciting and eclectic mix of neo-soul and R&B-flavored tracks from London’s Jamie Scott.

Free Association: How is it possible that so much soul comes out of white Londoners?

For Fans Of: James Blake x Mark Ronson, Fitz & the Tantrums, breaths of fresh air

The Fray
