Synth-pop singer Nandi Rose Plunkett is a former member of Pinegrove and has been performing solo as Half Waif for six years. Lavender is her second album following last year's Probably Depths.
Watch: "Keep It Out"
Janelle Monáe - Dirty Computer
Monáe steps away a bit from the thematic elements of her first two albums, though there's still some Cindi Mayweather around. In ways, it's a more typical pop album, but one only this artist could make. It's sexual, defiant, political, and (as she always is) amazing!

Okkervil River - In the Rainbow Rain
In the Rainbow Rain is the ninth album from this band fronted by Will Sheff. The album follows 2016's Away, in which Sheff unpacked major changes to his personal and professional lives. This album sees the band incorporating a wide variety of new styles.
