It’s almost April. Here are the best batch of records coming out during the first week of the new month:
AU— Both Lights
Avant-garde folk music from Portlandia.
Willis Earl Beal— Acousmatic Sorcery
A limited amount of pressings from the XL-owned Hot Charity Recordings are set to be released by Beal this Tuesday.
Bear In Heaven— I Love You, It’s Cool
If you haven’t been listening to the band’s drawn-out album stream over the past 2622 hours (as of writing time that’s how long the stream’s been playing on the band’s website), the much shorter physical copy is soon to be in-stores.
Candlebox— Love Stories & Other Musings
The 90s-era band’s fifth album.
A new disc from the challenging electronic producer.
De La Soul’s Plug 1 & Plug 2— First Serve
De La Soul’s still doin’ it, and still doin’ it well. Their latest work is a concept album about two fictional rappers trying to make it in the business.
Simone Felice— Simone Felice
A self-titled album from the singer/songwriter.
Great Lake Swimmers— New Wild Everywhere
Canadian folk rock group’s fifth full length album.
High On Fire— De Vermis Mysteriis
A new album from the metal band.
Lightships— Electric Cables
Definitely light indie pop album.

Nicki Minaj— Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded
Nicki’s back with another album of out-there rap/pop tunes.
Obie Trice— Bottoms Up
Finally, the repeatedly-delayed third installment of the Detroit rapper’s great booze-themed albums has arrived.

Debut, self-titled album from the former Books musician.
