Great Albums Coming July 2012
#5 “TheFearOfMissingOut” by TheNewNo2, features Grammy winning production duo pHD and vocals by Rza & Ben Harper. So far, it sounds like an absolute head bobber. Released July 31, 2012.
#4 “A Thousand Miles Left Behind” by Gloriana puts the blue in bluegrass. Beautifully crafted, softly sung and full of heart, easily the country album we are most looking forward to this month. Released July 31, 2012
The 3 Albums Coming July 2012 We’re Most Excited About
#3 “Life Is Good” by Nas. Production by hip hop traditionalists like 9th wonder & Swiss Beatz indicate a stripped down style, and initial reviews are that he is moving away from the deep waters he touched on in “Distant Relatives.” We aren’t too thrilled about that prospect, but, we’re pretty sure Nas could release an album about Gremlins and we’d be allright with it. Released July 17, 2012.
#2 “Hope In Transition” by Brendan James promises to be full of the sort of unabashed big piano song-writing that appeared to be lost from pop music. Shades of Elton John in the very best way. Released July 10, 2012.
#1 “Channel Orange” by Frank Ocean. The follow up to a slew of group/mixtape work and heavy presence on Jay-z/Kanye West’s, “Watch The Throne” is one of the most anticipated debut albums in music history. Released July 31, 2012. Anything less than a classic will be considered a dissapointment.
Other Albums With July 2012 Release Dates We Are Excited About
We’re also excited for… ‘Gossamer’ by Passion Pit, “Uncaged” by Zac Brown Band, “Master Of The Dark Arts” by La Coka Nostra, “Forever So” by Husky & “Skelethon” by Aesop Rock.
This playlist of fresh music includes tracks off these 20 albums, plus albums that have already caught on and evenmore great albums you may have missed!
A Great Album Released June 2012 That Stands Apart
The Ten Best Albums Released June 2012 That You May Have Missed
#1 “House That Jack Built” by Jesca Hoop. A wildly diverse and always powerful collection by Hoop shows off a songwriter and performer hitting her prime. “House That Jack Built” is available on Vinyl.
#2 “Valley Tangents” by Blues Control sounds epic. Not like the popular phrase, but like there is a giant cinematic experience going on infront of it that you aren’t privy to. The sounds tease you, making you wonder what the hell is going on behind a veil that doesn’t exist. Awesome. It’s an instrumental album, but those instruments are wide varied and many, and all are played expertly and compliment each other wonderfully. “Valley Tangents” is available on Vinyl
#3 “My Tiger My Timing” by Celest. One of those rare albums that is irresistably catchy and also easy to keep on repeat without growing tired of it. And an absolutely epic album cover.
#4 “From The Mouth of the Cave” by Gaggle. A church like sound of break beats and funk that is absolutely positively kick ass.
#5 “People Hear What They See” by Oddissee. Brilliantly paced production toes the line between simplicity and richness to perfection and Oddissee takes full advantage with his continual laid back assault. An instant buy for most 30 something rap fans that hear it. “People Hear What They See” is available on vinyl.
#6 “Passion” by Para One. Off the wall yet polished sounds, cherished lulls, catchy breaks and easter eggs all over the place make this an early contender for electronic album of the year. Run to your nearest dance hall, find that DJ who keeps playing the same dance song from 1993 and smack him in the face with this album.
#7 “Dream Life” by Mary Epworth. Anthemic album seems hesitant to cut loose, but the tight structures make this one of the more radio friendly albums of the month.
#10 “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” by The Flaming Lips. The Flaming Lips are back with another must have for your library, and this time they’ve brought along some “fwends” like Erykah Badu, Biz Markie, Chris Martin and Bon Iver! OF COURSE “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” is availabe on Vinyl!
Ten More Albums Released June 2012 That You May Have Missed
#11 “Let It Go” By House Shoes. Wonderfully constructed rhymes and beats, probably a bit unrefined and underground to crossover.
#12 “Far End Of The Graveyard” by Ghosting Season. Silky clean electronica.
#14 “Ocean” by DIIV. Appropriately named, this is a great collection of easy going experimental surf-rock.
#15 “In the Mouth, A Hand” by Fire! with Oren Ambarchi. Righteously loud wailing jazz.
#16 “I Swear It’s The Truth” by Rob Baird. An album full of soulful crooning that doesn’t run from it’s twang or western bar appeal.
#17 “L’Enfant Sauvage” by Gojira. The heavy rocker’s heavy rockers release another album metalheads will cherish.
#18 “Slaughterhouse”by Ty Segal Band. A high energy rock’n'roll, a welcome does of great punk without the emo.
#19 “Mindy Smith” by Mindy Smith. The long-time star in waiting has been clearing a path for herself for a decade now. With her self-titled album, it looks like she’s ready to take that path and arrive to take her proper place amongst the country music mainstream.
#20 “A New Brutality” by Perc. Absolute synth madness. If you love bass, you’ll love this
