Sounds Like: Their debut, Post- Nothing , was just as awesome as this one. They’re both loud and incredible fun.
Free Association: It’s a little dumbed-down but even more fist-pumping than before.
For Fans Of: No Age x Sonic Youth, harder Strokes + Cheap Trick, angry anthems.
The Stoned Immaculate
Sounds Like: The Louisiana-bred stoner, who’s been working the underground through multiple labels and mentorship from Master P and Lil’ Wayne, outshines them both.
Free Association: Lazy ’70s-flavored beats makes raps about THINGS sound awesome.
For Fans Of: Wiz Khalifa + Big K.R.I.T., Kid Cudi x Wale, spliffs and Impalas
In Our Heads
Sounds Like: The fifth LP from the British geniuses of dance is as sick as ever, this time taking their dancefloor obsessions and electronic confections to freakier places.
