3 New Albums Out This Week You Should Listen to Now: Burial, Arctic Monkeys, and Dry Cleaning
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 Burial, Arctic Monkeys, and Dry Cleaning.
Burial – Streetlands EP
It’s not often we elevate an EP and highlight it here on ‘3 Albums…’. But it’s also not often we get a release from the reclusive South London musician Burial. The surprise EP features three songs: ‘Hospital Chapel,’ ‘Exokind,’ and the title track ‘Streetlands.’ Released via longtime label Hyperdub, the 34-minute EP crisscrosses an expansive universe in which you’re likely to lose yourself.
Standout Songs: Streetlands, Exokind
Arctic Monkeys – The Car
Sheffield quartet Arctic Monkeys have released their seventh album The Car. The album is their first since 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. 10 tracks deep, The Car offers the listener on-point songwriting, stellar musicianship, and tight production.
Standout Songs: There’d Better Be A Mirrorball, I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am, Body Paint
Dry Cleaning – Stumpwork
South London English alt-rock band Dry Cleaning have returned to deliver their sophomore album Stumpwork. Produced by John Parrish Stumpwork is both a continuation and a departure of their 2021 debut album New Long Leg. All the basic elements are present, albeit with new twists and turns along the way. It’s a definite delight.
Standout Songs: Kwenchy Kups, Gary Ashby, Hot Penny Day, Stumpwork, No Decent Shoes For Rain, Don’t Press Me
