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.
"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.”
