Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending July 29)

We're so used to seeing women objectified in music videos that it's kinda nice to see the tables turned. Charli XCX released a new music video this week for "Boys". It features a variety of boys to suit every taste, be it traditionally attractive (Joe Jonas), goofy (Mac DeMarco), silly (D.R.A.M.), and anything in between. It is a really great video, so definitely check it out!

No word right now on whether she is gearing up for a new album, but keep an eye out on my Upcoming Releases page in case she makes an announcement!

This week, Jessica Lea Mayfield announced her fourth album, Sorry Is Gone.

Mayfield is a singer and songwriter combining elements of folk and country, and hailing from Kent, Ohio. Her debut album, 2008's With Blasphemy So Heartfelt, was produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. She stuck with Auerbach for one more album, then co-produced her last album with then-husband Jesse Newport.

She has since separated from her husband, an experience which, in part, influenced her latest record. She's also shedding herself of "needing to constantly apologize."

Sorry Is Gone is set to be released on September 29.
