With so many albums being released there is only so many that one man (me) can write about, so as another way of featuring some recommended albums beyond the reviews and album of the week posts, here is a list with links to the best albums of the last month with a regularly updated Spotify playlist you can subscribe to so you always have something long-playing to listen to.
Previously unmentioned albums include Irish producer Ebauche’s beautifully serene ambient album Adrift, the X-Files-influenced electronic of Palmbomben II, the teen duo Girlpool sharing their small worlds on the big stage and a potential classic in the Chance The Rapper / Donnie Trumpet all-star album (only released on US iTunes).
