New albums by Arctic Monkeys, DMA’s, Beach House and Pennywise

Many fans have been anticipating the new album of the Arctic Monkeys for months. The sixth album of the Sheffield-based rockers was not preceded by a single-release, which possibly heightened expectations even further.  

While some bands (Pennywise!) sound familiar, others steer into a new direction entirely, like Alex Turner and associates with Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

Furthermore, the Australian band DMA’s is releasing a second album, and the pop sensation Beach House is also back with a dreamy vengeance. Happy jamming!
