The Best New Albums: March 2018

The hits keep coming this year. Let’s take a look at the best music releases from March.

We’re back at it with our monthly picks for the best albums! Get your playlists ready and enjoy!

Indie: There’s a Riot Going On by Yo La Tengo

Yo La Tengo have been making music for decades. And there’s just something about their music that feels comfortable. Their sound is always welcoming and familiar, but nuanced enough to provide unique experiences from album to album. Cozy up and let the calming vibes wash over you.

Electronic: Le Kov by Gwenno

Mysterious and a little dense, Gwenno’s latest album may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Regardless, you have to respect the atmospheres she creates on the record. Psychedelic and poppy, the compositions are absolutely gorgeous. You may not be able to sing along — the lyrics are all in Cornish — but that shouldn’t stop you from giving it a spin.

Pop: Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves

You may know her as a country artist, but hands down, Kacey Musgraves just released the best pop album of the year. This record weaves in and out of genres, crossing from more traditional country ballads to electro-pop jams and back. Even if you don’t like country, you’ll love this album.

Rap/Hip Hop: Rich As In Spirit by Rich Homie Quan

Quan may not gain as much attention as some other sing-song style rappers, but that hasn’t kept him from releasing some classics. Rich As In Spirit offers up low-key production that serves to highlight Quan’s vocal abilities even more. Rich in hooks, this record is perfect for a chill hang.

Rock: Jericho Sirens by Hot Snakes

Comprised of former members of indie rock heavyweights Drive Like Jehu and Rocket From The Crypt, Jericho Snakes deliver high octane rock n’ roll. Put this album on, turn it up, and enjoy the ride. The album moves, blazing along riff after riff, providing a true sonic experience.
