After St. Vincent, Mozes and the Firstborn released the best new album that I heard last week. It was a big week with the mighty Beck also releasing a new album. I still love Beck and look forward to seeing him at Pitchfork fest this July. But Mozes, which recently played Subterranean, is worth a listen if you love garage rock.
Other notable releases this past week: the Notwist, Natural Child and Wild Beasts.
After a six-year break from its last studio album, German indie band the Notwist just released Close to the Glass.
If Southern boogie is more your speed, check out Natural Child’s Dancin’ With Wolves.
Wild Beasts’ Present Tense is more of a continuation of its electronic pop sound rather than a reinvention.
Beck’s new album, Morning Phase, will appeal to fans of his 2002 release Sea Change.
