Imelda May – Tribal (Verve)

See her live at The Loft on Friday, Oct. 3rd!
Alt-J – This Is All Yours (Atlantic)
Alt-J’s much anticipated sophomore album, This Is All Yours, features 13 new tracks as interesting and memorable as those on the band’s first. This Is All Yours was recorded earlier this year with the same producer/engineer (Charlie Andrew) and studio that yielded alt-J’s million-selling Mercury Prize-winning debut record, An Awesome Wave.

The Drums – Encyclopedia (INGROOVES)
Encyclopedia is the third full-length album from Brooklyn duo and childhood friends Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham. The Drums music often explores the themes of loss, nostalgia, redemption, vulnerability, and love with critic’s raves embracing both the lyrics and their sonic signature. This time around, they’ve embraced a darker sound while making it as grand and majestic as they please. Learn more about their newest release and order your own copy on The Drums website.
