3 New Albums Out This Week You Should Listen to Now: Conway the Machine, Superchunk, and Tears for Fears
This week we’re highlighting new music from Conway the Machine, Superchunk, and Tears for Fears.
Conway the Machine – God Don’t Make Mistakes
Buffalo native Conway the Machine has made a lot of headlines as of late. Between abruptly leaving Griselda Records and releasing his mixtape, Greetings Earthlings just days earlier, Conway the Machine has found time to release his most personal project to date. The album God Don’t Make Mistakes sees his Shady Record’s debut filled with intense personal accounts of getting shot in the neck to losing his child. The beats are fresh. The flows are diverse. And the production is second to none: the Alchemist, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Hit-Boy, and more. Mix in a stellar list of features (Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Benny the Butcher, Westside Gunn, Jill Scott, and more), and you have the making of an album that will be standing tall at year’s end.
Standout Songs: Tear Gas (feat. Rick Ross & Lil Wayne), Piano Love, John Woo Flick (with Benny the Butcher & Westside Gunn), Chanel Pearls (with Jill Scott), God Don’t Make Mistakes (feat. Annette Price)
Superchunk – Wild Loneliness
Superchunk is now 33 years into their career. And this past week, the band has released their 12th studio album, Wild Loneliness. The album is a testament to longevity and dedication coupled with the conviction of a talented group of individuals hell-bent on inspiring the listener. Filled with upbeat, optimistic, and high-energy music Superchunk’s latest should create some new fans one track at a time. Most bands 30 years in would likely go through the motions. But with Superchunk, their craft means too much. And they have so much left to say. Wild Loneliness is filled with inspiring tracks of purpose and conviction that will leave you feeling energized.
Standout Songs: Endless Summer, On The Floor, This Night, Connection
Tears for Fears – The Tipping Point
For an album that has been 17 years in the making, we’re the first to say that The Tipping Point isn’t what we were expecting from Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal. As a duo that saw significant airplay at their height, we thought it might be more of the same for the boys from Bath, England. But that’s not the case. There’s no looking back to the glory days. And they definitely aren’t resting on their laurels. The Tipping Point carves its own niche within the band’s discography. Fans new and old will be pleasantly pleased. The album has a restrained vibe that comes with age but takes risks when appropriate. It’s not a perfect album, but it feels right.
Standout Songs: No Small Thing, The Tipping Point, Break the Man, Please Be Happy
