New Music Friday - October 28

This week’s New Music Friday features new album releases from Benjamin Clementine, Smino, Trampled by Turtles, Palaye Royale, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Happy listening!

“Delighted” by Benjamin Clementine

Album: And I Have Been


“It is truly unfortunate that this is the penultimate album of his music career; there will be only one more to add to his discography before he departs to other interests. And I Have Been, though more digestible than his previous works, fully enlivens the mundane aspects of life. Matters unexplored on other projects are excavated humbly here, and he speaks about them with sheer earnestness and honesty, a signature quality that has granted him numerous accolades.”
The Line of Best Fit

“Pudgy” by Smino with Lil Uzi Vert

Album: Luv 4 Rent


“Delivering an eclectic mix of smoothly-sung raps and woozy R&B over the course of his career, the St. Louis emcee’s third studio album is a true sonic anomaly. Featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Ravyn Lenae, J. Cole, Lucky Daye, Doechii and more, the 15-track LP not only reasserts Smino’s highly-refined lyrical talent, but takes his sound to an entirely new level.”

“Starting Over” by Trampled by Turtles

Album: Alpenglow


“While certainly not a concept album, there are definitely general themes around change that seem to touch just about every song on Aplenglow – the 10th LP from Minnesota-based Bluegrass sextet Trampled By Turtles. There is also a calmness to the set of tunes. The banjos and mandolins are still here in full force, but there is a feeling of peace or at least resignation to their latest record that seems to fit in with the album title – a term that describes the optical phenomenon of the rosy light of the setting or rising sun seen on mountains.“

“Line It Up” by Palaye Royale feat LP

Album: Fever Dream


“Each track could be a single. So many songs challenge traditional pop or rock arrangements. Every sonic moment is intentional and carefully placed. The band have removed any messy moments that have been considered ‘too much’ in the past and created a VERY strong body of work. Each member has nailed their craft in every way possible but a very special mention needs to go to singer Remington for a truly outstanding performance on every track.”
Wall of Sound

“Hate Dancin’” by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Album: Changes


“King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard seems to operate almost like a bacterium or other single-cell organism, in that the band’s growth seems exponential rather than linear. Like a bacterial culture spreading to cover the bottom of the petri dish, KGLW is constantly exploring new musical landscapes, and like any good explorers, sending back plenty of maps of these territories.“
