S. Carey

Hoyas EP

(Jagjaguwar)

Sounds Like: The Bon Iver percussionist and expert in ethereal percussion-anchored vibes has a real ear for ambience. The singing is almost unnecessary.

Free Association: This poor guy’s always going to be the dude from Bon Iver—not fair.

For Fans Of: Owen Pallett x Sufjan Stevens + auto-tune and glitch, James Blake.

 

Damon Albarn

Dr. Dee

(Virgin)

Sounds Like: Hardly a solo album, it’s a BBC Philharmonic Orchestra-backed musical that’s hard to follow—dark, slow, and moody. It sounds nothing like Blur or Gorillaz.

Free Association: Britons and church-goers will be thrilled, pop fans will be confused.

For Fans Of: Peter and the Wolf with Leonard Cohen, operas x Quadrophenia.

 

Here We Go Magic

A Different Ship

(Secretly Canadian)

Sounds Like: Super-chill and delicious folk from Brooklyn, their third LP is produced by Nigel Godrich, with flecks of psychedelia, country and funk.

Free Association: Luke Temple’s voice is stellar—smooth, clean, capable and handsome.
