I Want That You Are Always Happy

(Indie Europe/Zoom)

Sounds Like: A varied and diverse debut LP from an Aussie folk rock collective that nails harmonies, acoustics and moods, for a surprisingly mature and powerful first go.

Free Association: Nominations for Album Name of the Year start right here, right now.

For Fans Of: Iron & Wine x America, Fleet Foxes + CSNY, slow burns, whispers.

Iceage

New Brigade

(What’s Your Rupture?)

Sounds Like: Truly chaotic and rambunctious punk from Danish teens

packing 12 songs into less than 25 minutes; angular, explosive punk that’s timeless and catchy.

Free Association: Damn, all these kids are under 20—how’d they get so sophisticated?

For Fans Of: Cold Cave x Bad Brains, Lightning Bolt, getting punched in the face.

Eddie Vedder

Ukulele Songs

(Monkeywrench)

Sounds Like: The Pearl Jam leader is 46 and decided to make a ukulele LP, which sounds whack, but it’s hard to hate on songs so lovely and well-executed.

Free Association: Dude had a mid-life crisis in Hawaii over some Mai Tais or some shit.

For Fans Of: Chill Pearl Jam, The Boss + Mike Stipe, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” poi.
