Adele – 21

Adele - 21

Keeping with the title of her last and debut album, 19, Adele’s new album title refers to her young age, despite the impressive maturity of her powerful voice. The British songstress and Grammy winner comes to her sophomore album with a youthful fierceness and the 60s-tinged soul sound that made her famous. The album has variety, too, with everything from upbeat hits “Rolling in the Deep” and “Rumor Has It” to the more heartfelt “Turning Tables” and “Someone Like You.”

Radiohead – King of Limbs

Radiohead - King of Limbs

The kings of alternative music are back with their 8th album, which was suddenly announced only a week before its release. In typical Radiohead fashion, it is an experimental departure from their last album, with more abstract loops and snappy syncopated beats. Longtime fans will no doubt stay in love with the band’s trippy sound and the eerie falsetto of Thom Yorke’s vocals.

The Cave Singers – No Witch

The Cave Singers - No Witch

This is the Seattle folk group’s third studio album, and their first since they made the label switch to Jagjaguwar. The band brings their infectious live energy to hippie-folk tracks laced with hints of blues and rock and roll. The album has a darker mood than previous records, with singer Pete Quirk’s raspy vocals and the addition of moody electric guitar melodies.
