As can be expected in September, there are almost too many quality albums coming out to mention, but we’re doing our best to get through them. Much of what’s on this week's playlist seems to have been long in the works: it’s been over two years since Atlanta metalheads Mastodon released their last LP, while indie-pop gang Twin Sister are finally releasing their debut album. Also new this week are albums from Dum Dum Girls, Machine Head, Dan Mangan, and comedian Lewis Black. Don’t miss new singles from Rihanna, Nickelback, and T-Pain featuring Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen.
- Wilco - The Whole Love
Alt-folk critical darlings Wilco release their eighth studio album this week, and it’s a slight return to their experimental side following two albums of more straightforward folk. Everyone wins!
- Justice - Audio, Video, Disco EP
It’s been five years since French electronic duo blew up with their massive single ”D.A.N.C.E.”. Later this year they’ll release their second full-length album, Audio, Video, Disco, but for now they’re keeping fans happy with an EP featuring the album's title track.
- Blink 182 - Neighborhoods
California trio Blink 182 return this week with their first full-length studio album in over eight years. Want to hear what pop-punk sounds like, all grown up? Check out Neighborhoods.
