Hug Of Thunder by Broken Social Scene

Broken Social Scene are the sort of band that gatekeepers tell you are great, but you never really get around to checking out (not us, obviously, we love them.) Change that now. Listen to this album, and then work your way backwards. The forwards back to this. Now breathe.

Something To Tell You by Haim

If you liked Haim's debut album Days Are Gone, which I believe was released about 22 years ago, there's a lot to enjoy here. Whereas their debut felt like a bunch of killer singles backed by the occasional filler, their follow-up album Something To Tell You feels a lot stronger across the board, but lacking in certified bangers (minus 'Right Now', of course).

Boo Boo by Toro y Moi

Here's your typical Toro Y Moi news cycle: dude releases an album, we all rave about it, we forget about it 2 weeks later. Now, that could be applied to most artists given the speed of music consumption right now, but it feels like Toro Y Moi has always fallen into that trap. Which is a shame really because like his previous albums, Boo Boo is a solid release with touches of magic (see 'Girl Like You' and 'You And I') sprinkled in for good measure.
