From deluxe releases to full on lineup transformations, today’s new releases show off an array of artist development.
For the remaining summer days to contemplate outdoors and daydream about the past, White Fence’s new record, For The Recently Found Innocent, offers that ’60s folk and pop background to indulge in. The crispy tunes are emblazoned with WF’s signatory murky vocals that jump between solace and worry. You can stream the entire album via NPR First Listen here.
Due to an unexpected leak, Canadian duo Majid Jordan has decided to release their new EP A Place Like This on July 17th – a few days earlier than their original set date. The five-track effort has been crafted with mid-tempo melodies that exhibit a similar debonair found on Drake’s hit, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” That’s no surprise since Majid Jordan helped Drake compose the masterpiece.

Hit the dance floor with Cut Copy’s album Free Your Mind, a dance pop record containing an ’80s disco flavor bound in electro edginess. The Canadian quartet released the record back in November last year as their fourth studio album and have recently revealed the Deluxe edition. In this 14-track album, the artificial human voice echoes throughout the entire dance-inducing ballads that take you back into a funky dark club cornered in an alley. Play the entire album on Spotify.
From a duo to a solo act, La Roux has morphed into a single artist consisting of Elly Jackson. But the latest album, Trouble In Paradise, proves that La Roux keeps its synthpop flare. Released on July 21st, we hear Jackson’s voice backed by the same electro rhythms that throb audaciously. The new album has an ’80s Brit-pop touch to it, perfect for your poolside disco playlist. You can listen to the whole album on Spotify.
