Every Friday, at The Soundx we will pick five new releases, based on quality or importance, which ones you should listen to throughout the week. This week we have releases from The Armed, Andy Stott, London Grammar, Cannibal Corpse, and Greta Van Fleet.
The Armed – ULTRAPOP
The Armed’s new album, Ultrapop, features a chaotic and noisy sound. Led by Dan Greene, the Detroid group returns for its third release with more new members. The album follows 2018’s Only Love, has 12 new songs, and is released by Sargent House.
Andy Stott – Never the Right Time
With nine new songs, Never the Right Time is Andy Stott’s first album since 2019’s It Should Be Us. With vocals by Alison Skidmore, the album was made on throughout the last year, in quarantine. The album features the single “The Beginning” and is released by Modern Love.
London Grammar – Californian Soil
Talking about feminism and fame, Californian Soil is the third studio album by English indie pop band London Grammar. After being postponed for more than a month for unknown reasons, the album features 12 new songs and production by Charlie Andrew and George FitzGerald.
Cannibal Corpse – Violence Unimagined
Violence Unimagined is the fifteenth studio album by American death metal band Cannibal Corpse. It is the first since 2017’s Red Before Black and the first with Erik Rutan on the lead guitar.
Greta Van Fleet – The Battle at Garden’s Gate
Taking inspiration from several parts of the world, the second album by rock band Greta Van Fleet, The Battle at Garden’s Gate, is released through Lava and Republic. Featuring the singles “My Way, Soon” and “Age of Machine,” the record intends to remove the stigma that the band tried to imitate other groups from the past, such as Led Zeppelin.
