The Navigator by Hurray for the Riff Raff

Alynda Segarra's latest album was inspired by her journey from "the South Bronx to the downtown punk scene" - a journey which afforded her the freedom to find herself. Situations like that always create the best art, don't they?

Feel Infinite by Jacques Greene

"The essence of the record is to draw emotions that above all feel human within the context of dance music. I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience - the beautiful, the good, and the bad." As far as mission statements go, that's up there.

Semper Femina by Laura Marling

I was never a huge fan of Laura Marling until I saw her live in San Francisco. Being in Holiday Mode definitely helped, and sure, Bimbo's 365 Club is pretty special, but she really won me over that night. She's a pro.

"I started out writing it as if a man was writing about a woman," Marling says of her new album. "And then I thought it’s not a man, it's me — I don’t need to pretend it’s a man to justify the intimacy of the way I’m looking and feeling about women. It’s me looking specifically at women and feeling great empathy towards them and by proxy towards myself."

She continues: "Innocent creativity had a little flourish in the last ten years. But also I’m getting older and now I think ‘What use is that?’ It’s not rooted, not pointed, not political. For me right now I feel like it’s more important that I have a practical use."

We think you're gonna like this one.

Heartworms by The Shins

This is your weekly reminder that The Shins shot to fame thanks to everyone's favourite film from 2004, Garden State. Have you watched that film recently? Total garbage. Also, this is your weekly reminder that The Shins created a song for the Spongebob Squarepants Movie OST, and it's better than anything they've ever created. Proof can be found over here.
