While we are still eagerly waiting for the new Lana Del Rey album, there are already some promising new releases on the horizon. Like the collaboration between Karen O (from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Danger Mouse. And we can find out if Khalid, after being “Young Dumb & Broke” on his debut American Teen, has matured, brained-up, and maybe earned some mula now that his new album Free Spirit is coming up. And if you’re into Nick Cave, check out Oliver Oat from The Netherlands,
There are also some skilled guitar players in this week’s list, like White Denim and The Flaming Lips. And what about the soulful Daniel Norgren, the Scandinavian bluesy singer-songwriter. He recorded his new album in a nineteenth-century manor in the mysterious forests in the southern parts of Sweden. Check it out, and happy jamming!
