New at Southwest Sound: Aug. 12

by Cooper Stapleton

Aug. 121. Atmosphere, “Fishing Blues”Slug and Ant always bring something fresh to the table of hip-hop, and while the title of their newest album may lead one to think they are content to rest on their laurels, do not be concerned. If the single “Pure Evil” is any indicator, the album will be a slow burn that coalesces into something magical.

2. Rae Sremmurd, “Sremmlife 2”Swae Lee and Slim Jimmi return with another album full of enough bangers to break your neck. “Sremmlife 1” debuted at No. 5 on Billboard, so this new one is sure to heat up the charts as well.

3. Young The Giant, “Home of the Strange”The third record from this indiepop outfit, “Home of the Strange” brings in an interesting blend of electronics and subdued guitars and drums into the fold. Finding a nice balance of the mellow tracks of their self-titled album and the energetic nature of “Mind Over Matter,” “Home of the Strange” is poised to bring the group some new fans.

4. Of Montreal, “Innocence Reaches”If you want weird, you got it. If you want atmosphere, you got it. If you want pop music to confuse you, then by god grab up this record.

5. Thee Oh Sees, “Weird Exits”You never really know what to expect when it comes to Thee Oh Sees. You can expect it to sound like it was recorded in a smoky garage, and to be drenched in reverb. But beyond that, if you like lo-fi, and you like garage rock, then you should take the plunge with them, and expect nothing but dreams.
