Keep an eye out for these new albums this week:

Mac DeMarco – Here Comes The Cowboy

The pepperoni playboy’s sixth studio LP has been pre-empted by the release of three, generally downcast, slacker pop jams. It sounds like there’s something on the Canadian’s mind, don’t expect the facetiousness of his first three LPs.

Rhye – Spirit

Canadian singer Mike Milosh’s third album follows the jump in notoriety and recognition Rhye received following the release of Blood last year.

Mavis Staples – We Get By

Gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples’ new LP will serve as an introduction to the artist for an entire generation, following her collaboration with Hozier on ‘Nina Cried Power’.

Holly Herndon  – Proto

Third album from American electronic composer and experimentalist who brings a human and AI electronic pop choir together with the artist’s avant-garde sensibilities.

Ordnance Survey – Relative Phase

An electro-acoustic electronic collaboration between Irish and International musicians including Somadrone’s Neil O’Connor and Tortoise’s John McEntire, Sean Mac Erlaine, Kate Ellis and Linda Buckley. Recorded at National Concert Hall Studios.
