Musical Agenda: the key albums that we’re expecting for the end of April

The next two week look very promising in terms of music releases. Here is the list of the most anticipated albums that we’re waiting to listen in the following days:

  • 8 by Incubus

The new full-lenght album by the American Rock band arrives after six years from their previous release. As the name of the album suggests, it’s the eighth released of their career and has been anticipated by a couple of songs.

  • Love is Love by Woods

The prolific American Folk Rock band returns with a new album after last year’s City Sun Eater in the River of Light. Love is Love, the new effort, is also the name of the song from the album that the band has already shared in anticipation of the new release.

 

  • Humanz by Gorillaz

The visionary and acclaimed British virtual pop band foundedn by singer-songwriter Damon Albarn (Blur) and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett are back with their new LP, Humanz, which is the fifth of their career. The release has been anticipated by quite a good number of singles, which show the band exploring new and different directions.

 

  • Contingent by Pyramaze

The Danish progressive metallers are about to publish their last effort, Contingent, which is the fifth of their career. It follows the previous release, Disciples of Sun, which a couple of years ago received enthusiastic reviews because of its very well balanced mix of heavy, technical and melodic parts. At the moment there are a couple of singles available from the new album.

  • Gargoyle by Mark Lanegan Band

A few momnths ago the influential American rocker announced the release of Gargoyle, the his thenth album so far, which features guest appearances from long-time collaborators such as Josh Homme (ex-Kyuss and leader of the Queens of the Stone Age), Greg Dulli and Duke Garwood. There is still one single track anticipated from the new album, where we can however appreciate Lanegan’s beautiful voice (somehow resembling Leonard Cohen).

 

  • Async by Ryuichi Sakamoto 

Legendary Japanese pianist and composer is releasing a solo album, named Async. The 15-track LP marks the composer’s first original album since 2009’s Out Of Noise and will be his first since after recovering from throat cancer. There are a few tracks already available, which show rarefied atmospheres, delicate and distant sounds, and the adoption of a substantially slow pace with a minimalistic approach to songwriting.
