It's an extremely time of year for new album releases, and the quality has been exceptionally high, so there's a lot to get through for Rob Hakimian and Kieran Devlin in episode 06. Views From The 405 is back to give you an introduction to some of the absolute finest releases that have come out in the last month, including Protomartyr's Relatives In Descent, Torres' Three Futures, Four Tet's New Energy, Wolf Parade's Cry Cry Cry and The World Is A Beatiful Place's Always Foreign. On top of that we also have time to mention new releases from The Clientele, Moses Sumney, Kelela, Phoebe Bridgers, Daphni, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Alex Lahey.

This week's discussion of great music journalism from around the net touches on 'Meet the anonymous artist behind Aphex Twin’s insane visuals' about Weirdcore, written by Jack Needham on Dazed; and 'What Do We Want From Punk Music In A Trump World?' by Craig Jenkins on Vulture.

Listen to all that, with much more in between, below. You can subscribe to the Views From The 405 podcast on iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, Google Play, and Overcast. You can also listen to the podcast over at Pippa.
