New In Rotation (9-19-17)

Ariel Pink – Dedicated to Bobby Jameson

After an arguably lackluster collaborative EP with fellow Mexican Summer signee, Weyes Blood, and contributions to one of the more overlooked records of 2016, Drugdealer’s The End of Comedy, Ariel Pink shows just how weird (and great) he can be.

Cut Copy – Haiku From Zero

Cut Copy will probably spend the rest of their careers trying to reach the standard set by their debut record, In Ghost Colours, back in 2008. For now, this will do. It grooves.

METZ – Strange Peace

You don’t hear a lot of punk rock like this on KSDB’s airwaves. But whenever bands like Pissed Jeans or METZ have releases, we know to listen. And we know they’ll be good. This one is as well.

Anna of the North – Lovers

After a number of singles and even hopping in the studio with Tyler, The Creator to work on his latest record, Flower Boy, Norwegian pop artist, Anna of the North, is here with her highly anticipated debut record.

Death From Above – Outrage is Now

Death From Above 1979’s (or Death From Above, who even knows at this point?) debut record in 2004 was stellar noise rock. This is decent noise rock. Still worth your time and worth our airwaves. We think at least.


KSDB Charts

1. LCD Soundsystem – american dream

After their flamboyant departure from the music industry in 2011, James Murphy and co. announced their return a few years later. They’ve played a few shows since coming back, headlining large festivals, and they topped it off with one of the most gorgeous records of the year so far in american dream.

2. The War On Drugs – A Deeper Understanding

The War On Drugs are the project of Adam Granduciel, one of the leaders in indie rock today. The band’s consistency is hardly matched by anyone in music, and after a stellar record three years ago, they’ve followed it up with a worthy successor.

3. Alex Cameron – Forced Witnesses

Alex Cameron’s sophomore album is too good to pass up. He has a unique style that he brings to each song. “Stranger’s Kiss” is a powerful ballad which features Angel Olsen.

4. Zola Jesus – Okovi

The synth pop star is back for her fifth LP since her debut in 2009, The Spoils, and many believe it to be her best ever project receiving critical acclaim.

5. Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins

After their flamboyant departure from the music industry in 2011, James Murphy and co. announced their return a few years later. They’ve played a few shows since coming back, headlining large festivals, and they topped it off with one of the most gorgeous records of the year so far in american dream.
