This week we’re highlighting new music from Placebo, Oksana Linde, and Destroyer.
Placebo – Never Let Me Go
In their first album in 9 years, Placebo (Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal) pick up right where they left off in 2013. The alternative rock veterans have created an album in Never Let Me Go that is filled with new and inspiring songs built to keep you entertained. We found ourselves following along with anticipation and enjoyment. Never Let Me Go is proof that Placebo have endured through the ever-changing music landscape due to their skill and mastery in creating music that matters.
Standout Songs: Forever Chemicals, Beautiful James, The Prodigal, Try Better Next Time, This Is What You Wanted
Oksana Linde – Aquatic and Other Worlds (1983-1989)
Unpublished for several decades, Oksana Linde is finally realizing her dream with the release of her debut album, Aquatic and Other Worlds (1983-1989), via Buh Records. Predominantly live, numerous recordings are overlapped and looped onto others to create what we hear today. With the sounds varying from track to track, Linde is a master at pulling everything together to convey her artistic vision. Overall, Aquatic and Other Worlds (1983-1989) is an approachable, contemporary, and heartwarming album that offers many moments of contemplation. In a world that seems ever-so-exhausting and tiresome, Oksana Linde’s music is a breath of fresh air.
Standout Songs: Playa Caribe, Estudio para una sinfonía folclórica ucraniana , Psicocatálisis, Descubrimiento
Destroyer – LABYRINTHITIS
LABYRINTHITIS, Destroyer’s 13th album, leans heavily on 80s electronica. Synthesizers, drum machines, and vocal arrangements all scream the 80s. For the casual listener, Labyrinthitis is a safe and solid album that’s worth a listen. Nothing skippable, and nothing too over the top. Impressively, the album is entirely recorded via isolated tracks yet sounds as if a band worked tirelessly in the studio, together, as one. LABYRINTHITIS deserves to be on your shortlist this week.
Standout Songs: Suffer, Tinteretto, It’s For You, Eat the Wine, Drink the Bread, It Takes a Thief
