Woe To The VanquishedUnited States Warbringer
Woe To The Vanquished is nothing new in the world of thrash metal. It comes in on the wave of retro-thrash that throws back the genre's heyday of the 80s and 90s, but just because it isn't new doesn't mean it isn't good. Warbringer come at this album with speed and with force, it's an album that kicks off in a high gear and keeps it running til it's done. The songs are tight, they're made well, and it's an overall enjoyable thrash album.

Semper FeminaUnited Kingdom Laura Marling
"Semper Femina" is an album about women, by a woman. There's nothing about men on this album, though not to say it attacks men or anything, they're just not here. Laura Marling has always been a strong songwriter and has consistently put out solid folk albums, and "Semper Femina" is yet another good album from her. This is an elegant, intimate, complex album, and is more proof that Laura Marling is one of the better folk musicians out there.

Nightmare LogicUnited States Power Trip
Nightmare Logic kicks off in a rage and never stops. It's a constantly powering forward metal album that doesn't play games or have any illusions as to what it is. The album is full of anger, both musically and lyrically, and it's a fun album. The instrumentation is really solid, it rarely gets boring as it's well-balanced, and the guitar-work is especially awesome. This is just a fun, straightforward metal album that falls somewhere in between thrash, hardcore, and punk.

UnfoldAustralia The Necks
The Necks have this experimental, jazzy improv feel going on, and it's fascinating. This album is only four tracks, but each track is a long, expansive work. Each track on Unfold is its own unique idea, its own concept. From the power of tracks like "Rise" and "Blue Mountain" to a more minimalistic psych feel in "Overhear", The Necks cover it all and do it well.

SweetSexySavageUnited States Kehlani
On this album, Kehlani just lays it all out there. I mean, she lays out her baggage completely, for everyone to see, and it comes across as very genuine. The production on this album is smooth and well done, and the lyrics are solid. Kehlani is able to be vulnerable and open without seeming weak. She can lay her heart out there, but she'll assure you that she can handle it and that she's strong enough to move on. It's an album of yearning but with an underlying theme of "I may be in pain, but I can make it through this"

Near To The Wild Heart Of LifeCanada Japandroids
Japandroids are exceptionally good at being very loud. That's not an insult, rather it's a compliment to how they are able to blend the fun of rock with the aggressiveness of punk, and they did that excellently on Celebration Rock. Now, five years later, we finally have the follow-up, and while it's good, it's not what Celebration Rock was. It feels like in the five years since Celebration Rock, Japandroids lost some of their heart and passion, and that comes out in a few songs on this album. That being said, when Japandroids are good, they're very good, and there are some tracks on this album that are every solid. Overall, it's a good album, but not the follow-up I think many people were hoping for.

An Act Of LoveUnited States Earthen Sea
Earthen Sea makes what you might call minimal dub techno, but in all honesty, it's not as upbeat as that genre classification would sound. This album is a lot more slowed down (for the most part), and is essentially a somewhat dark ambient album at times with some more upbeat techno-style stuff thrown in. Tracks like "Delicately in the Sunlight" are slow, thoughtful pieces that envelop you with a lush sound. Tracks like "The Flats 1975" are where the beat kicks in and the tempo shoots up a bit, but it's still a subtle beat, the track is muffled, it's not a full-out dance track. It's a solid album with some really interesting and pretty tracks.

I See YouUnited Kingdom The xx
I See You feels like the most cohesive The xx's identity has ever been. Their debut album was a surprise to a lot of people, and I don't think they'll ever truly be able to duplicate it. Coexist felt like it was trying to hard to not live in their debut's shadow, but I See You features the band as a total cohesive unit. "On Hold" is, for me, the best song The xx has ever created. It blends the talents of Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft as singers and guitar/bassists with Jamie xx's subtle, yet essential sampling. This doesn't feel like a Jamie xx-dominated album (and it could considering the fame the guy has made for himself now), nor does it feel like an album dominated by Sim and Croft, it's a perfect blend of all three, making it an album that is uniquely The xx, but simultaneously a step forward for the band.
