Every Friday, at The Soundx we will pick some new releases, based on quality or importance, which ones you should listen to throughout the week. This week we have releases from Weezer, Squid, Iceage, Sufjan Stevens, and Alfie Templeman.

Weezer Van Weezer

Previously scheduled May for 2020, Weezer’s fifteenth album, Van Weezer, was initially made for the band’s participation in the Hella Mega Tour alongside Green Day and Fall Out Boy. Due to the pandemic, the record and the tour were delayed. Van Weezer arrives now, almost a year later, after Ok Human! and through Crush Music and Atlantic Records.
