Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. The Antlers, Burst Apart
(Brooklyn-based trip follows up their sad hospice-inspired debut with a more uplifting, but still subdued, set of indie-pop songs. A perfect album for fans of Grizzly Bear or The National.)

2. The Beastie Boys, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
(The delayed latest album from these hip-hop pioneers is more like their 1990s output, a sledgehammer of punk mixed with rap deconstruction and unforgettable studio wizardry.)

3. Okkervil River, I Am Very Far
(The Texas folk-rockers bounce back hard, making a great Spring rock album.)

4. Tyler the Creator, Goblin
(Easily the most disturbing and digusting rap solo album since the early work of Eminem, the new solo LP from the founder of Odd Future is also surprisingly listenable and smart.)

5. Kurt Vile, Smoke Ring For My Halo
(Dark and dusty murder ballads from a songwriter that is one part Mark Lanegan and one part Tom Petty.)
