Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending March 4)

Trump's election has seemed to herald in a new era for the intersection between entertainment in politics. Kanye West has implied that he would run in 2020 (please, no) and there have been rumors that Oprah's considering the same (again, please, no). This week, Chance The Rapper met with Illinois' governor to discuss education. I don't know if that spells political aspirations for him, as well, but until we find out, keep an eye out on my Upcoming Releases page in case of new music from the talented performer!

This week, Sylvan Esso announced their sophomore album, What Now.

At first, Sylvan Esso seemed like just a side project for Megafaun's Nick Sanborn and Mountain Man's Amelia Meath, but has come to feel more like their main focus. They released a spectacular self-titled debut album in 2014, but have been far from quiet in the interim.

They spent much of 2015 touring and continuing to release singles from the album. Sanborn also released an album under the name Made of Oak that year. Last year, they did a few more shows and released a new single, "Radio;" a song that did not appear on their debut.

The new album was announced on Tuesday, along with a new track and video, "Die Young." Previously released tracks "Radio" and "Kick Jump Twist" will also appear on the album.

What Now will be released on April 28!

Alt-J - Relaxer (June 9)
