You Only Live 2wice by Freddie Gibbs

We recommend reading Samantha's entire review of this album, but if you're in a rush, here's the skinny: "Freddie Gibbs is back, with the freedom to create and the freedom to live. But with his sonic and personal resurrection, he's only focused on the future of one - Irie. With her, he doesn't need a third chance."

In the Same Room [Live] by Julia Holter

In the Same Room is the first release in Domino's new imprint, Domino Documents, which "is an irregular series of live studio recordings designed to capture the ever-evolving arrangements of Domino artists and their bands in high fidelity." Not a bad way to kick off a new venture.

Darling of the Afterglow by Lydia Ainsworth

Lydia Ainsworth makes the sort of music that worms its way around your chest, pulsing and slithering in time with the rhythm of your body. She also makes interesting pop music. Fans of both will find something to love here.

"If you overanalyze and break down things like lyrics or a manifesto, you lose most of the meaning if you interpret them separately. It's best understood by listening to the record, by going to the show, reading the lyrics or looking at the artwork, not through interviews or dissection." That's a quote from our interview with Margaret Chardiet, aka Pharmakon. So yeah, stop reading and press play.
