Ryan Adams “Gold” (Lost Highway)

Ryan Adams’ second album still sounds quite fantastic and powerful 13 years on.

Shabazz Palaces “Lese Majesty” (Sub Pop)

Astral, symphonic, skyscraping next-level sounds from hip-hop’s far side explorers (“Cake” from the album below)

Jungle “Jungle” (XL)

Prepare for the album of the summer as Josh Lloyd-Watson, Tom McFarland and co fire it up. (“Busy Earnin’” from the album below)

Jessie Ware “Tough Love” (PMR)

Sweeping soulful grandeur from the soon-come second album

Wildcat! Wildcat! “Hero” (Downtown)

New-school pop with baked-in hazy harmonies from the Los Angeles band’s “No Moon At All” album
