Week’s Top Releases
The Albums You Need to Know About Every Week


The first two releases on the list below are super-refined, glitzy pop. Justin Timberlake is back after seven years with his third solo record that everybody, including your mama (she’s the one really bringing sexy back), is listening to. The bleach blonde afro is long gone and has since been replaced with sleek, soulful charm. There’ll be no crotch grabbing — Justin is all grown up and prepared to blow pop charts to shreds. Asthmatic Kitty, synth-pop LA babes, Fol Chen, are also presenting their third full-length this week, and it’s full of experimental dance tracks designed to get caught in your brain and make you move.

Then, at the other end of the spectrum are Low and Phosphorescent, each presenting us with enough folk charm and country grit to keep us grounded and remind us that pop isn’t the only music you can dance to.  Low’s, The Invisible Way, is tragically beautiful, featuring more piano and more female vocals this time around, and Phosphorescent’s Muchacho is blowing the critics away with its rough yet refined swagger and electronically infused country sound. It’s that time again- go!
