170x170bb-35. Highly Suspect – The Boy who died wolf – [itunes link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-boy-who-died-wolf/id1149445034?uo=4″ title=”The_Boy_Who_Died_Wolf”]

Highly Suspect’s album, released in November of 2016 brings back signature 90s grunge rock vibes, with some bluesy bar-room charm. “Viper strike” is an energetic song driven by heavy distortions while “Little One” is a more toned down reflection on a past relationships. The album is great for getting the adrenaline going but also to sit back and listen to the reflective lyrics.

 4. Cage the elephant – Tell me I’m pretty – [itunes link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/tell-me-im-pretty/id1051876257?uo=4″ title=”Tell_Me_Im_Pretty”]

Glass Animals released their second album, How to Be a Human Being in August of 2016. They stayed true to their sweet smooth indie-electric sound while drawing upon the nostalgia of 1970s funk. Each song tells its own story and the reality of humanity. “Pork Soda” has a fun “trip hop” beat while ‘s smooth vocals and the flute create a transcendentalist element to “Mama’s Gun.” This album is great whether you want to just chill out or to go out.

2. Temples – Sun Structures – [itunes link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sun-structures-deluxe-version/id942862366?uo=4″ title=”Sun_Structures_(Deluxe_Version)”]

 1. Karen Elson – The Ghost Who Walks –
