Culture Abuse
— Bay Dream

I might have a soft spot for a concept album about the trials and tribulations of living in the Bay Area, but for my money, this album was near perfect. Every song is catchy, with just the right amount of sonic intricacies to differentiate from the current onslaught of post-hardcore bands releasing softer sounding albums. This one will live on beyond the era it was released. For Fans of: the stoned offspring of The Cars, Title Fight and Archers of Loaf.

Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread
— Self Titled

Michael Nau’s latest release embodies every mellow sunny Sunday morning bike ride you’ve ever had. The recording is timeless — simple mumbled ditties soaked in reverb and ornate piano melodies that keep things moving along. Any album that features just the right amount of vibraphone is an easy win for me. For fans of: Mac Demarco’s older brother.

Chancha Via Circuito
— Bienaventuranza

After becoming further entrenched in a growing fascination with traditional Cumbia music, I came across Chancha Via Circuito and fell in love. A balance of raw Argentinian instrumentation and subtle but nuanced electronic rhythms is the blend here. This album showed me that uncomfortable time signatures can be really enjoyable to listen to, and aren’t always reserved for inaccessible jazz or latin music. For fans
