There’s so much good music out in the ether that sometimes it’s difficult to parse through all of it. Every week The Daily Music Report will do the hard work for you and highlight the best releases available on streaming services.

This week we’re highlighting new music from Judas Priest, Bleachers, and Kim Gordon.

Judas Priest – Invincible Shield

Judas Priest’s 19th studio album, Invincible Shield, released on March 8, 2024, marks the legendary English heavy metal band’s triumphant return after six years. Produced by touring guitarist Andy Sneap, known for their 2018 offering Firepower, the album overcame pandemic-related challenges during its February 2020 writing sessions. Despite the hurdles, the band maintained the dynamic established with Firepower, playing songs in pre-production before recording.

Standout Songs: Panic Attack, The Serpent and the King, Crown of Horns, Trial By Fire

Released on March 8th, the album was preceded by the release of four singles: ‘Modern Girl,’ ‘Alma Mater,’ ‘Tiny Moves,’ and ‘Me Before You.’ Exploring themes of love, loss, grief, contentment, marriage, and maturity, the album draws heavily from Antonoff’s personal experiences, including the death of his sister and his relationship with his wife.

Kim Gordon – The Collective

Kim Gordon’s new album, The Collective, marks her second solo studio album and was officially released on March 8, 2024, under the Matador Records label. Drawing inspiration from Jennifer Egan’s novel The Candy House, Gordon, in collaboration with producer Justin Raisen, crafted a sonic landscape that embraces a more beat-oriented approach than her previous work. The recording process took place in Los Angeles, where Raisen sent Gordon instrumental tracks that served as the foundation for her distinctive vocals, complemented by innovative distortion effects. The Collective not only showcases Gordon’s evolving artistic vision but also reaffirms her ability to push the boundaries of her musical expression.

Standout Songs: Bye Bye, I’m a Man, Tree House, Shelf Warmer
