New Music Friday - May 13

What better way to head into the weekend than with some new music? This week’s New Music Friday features new albums from Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, The Smile, and Mandy Moore.

“Dream Girl Evil” by Florence + The Machine

Album: Dance Fever


This 14-track release is the fifth full-length album from the indie British rock band.

“It feels like a joyous, slowly unfurling epiphany. It’s a gift to be able to listen in.”  
– New Musical Express (NME)

“For the Love of Money” by The Black Keys

Album: Dropout Boogie


“The svelte, 34-minute Dropout Boogie — which comes out the day before the 20th anniversary of their first album — keeps things similarly crunchy.”
Rolling Stone

“N95” by Kendrick Lamar

Album: Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers


“Mr Morales & The Big Steppers is one of his most profound, complex, revelatory statements yet, a double album fuelled by sonic ambition, the will to communicate, and Kendrick’s staunch refusal to walk the easy path.”
Clash Music

“Waving a White Flag” by The Smile

Album: A Light for Attracting Attention


“A Light for Attracting Attention sounds more like a proper Radiohead album than any of the numerous side projects the band’s members have done on their own. … The Smile spotlights the creative relationship between Yorke and Greenwood like never before.”

“Brand New Nowhere” by Mandy Moore

Album: In Real Life


“In Real Life showcases Moore’s growth and maturity as both a songwriter and performer. The album is fun and breezy, but most importantly, it feels authentic to her personal experience.”
