#1)Lapalux // Lustmore
One of the most promising acts on Flying Lotus’ experimental Brainfeeder label. His debut is covered in lush textures and melodies carried by haunting vocals, and from hearing ______ & ______ he’s only gotten better.
#2)Modest Mouse // Stranger to Ourselves
They’re back after a 7 year hiatus, and they’re packing the goods (unfortunately no Big Boi). Modest Mouse fans won’t be disappointed though, the band takes on some new territory but stays true to their indie rock roots.
#3)Liars // Mess
Psychedelic synth masters Liars return with their 7th full length. This dense, textural, danceable double LP is packaged in a gorgeous gatefold. High quality product for sure.
#4)Mndsgn // Surface Outtakes
One of the more recently spotlighted beat makers from the thriving LA beat scene, Mndsgn comes through with another selection of oddly infectious and sexy tracks. Lovely, high quality vinyl form Stones Throw and Leaving records.
#5)Ras G – Other Worlds
(iN)Sect Records brings LA’s Ras G & the Afrikan Space Program to us with this limited edition 45, Other Worlds. They’re gone online, but we’ll have stash of them out for y’all soon, keep an eye out !
