The Devil Wears Prada - 8:18:00
The prolific metal band (who, for you fashionistas, aren’t associated with the film of the same name) returns right on time with a fifth full-length of relentlessness.
Grouplove - Spreading Rumours
The indie pop darlings behind Never Trust a Happy Song are back with extra sassiness on their sophomore effort.
Elvis Costello & The Roots - Wise Up Ghost
This unlikely collaboration was borne out of Costello’s musical appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where The Roots are the house band.
The Naked and Famous - In Rolling Waves
The second album from these New Zealand-based alt-rockers is buoyed by the fun single “Hearts Like Ours.”
Tom Odell - Long Way Down
The young British singer-songwriter has already been winning over fans and critics in the UK with this debut album.
