Top March Albums
Written by Alexander Foy
I was on the Google one day and was searching for some new music that was released in March. Turns out the greatest month in the calendar had a very quiet and unproductive month when it came to new music release. Besides Jack White, Lil Yachty, and the cash grab music that is Diplo, March had an okay month when it came to album releases. (The Weeknd doesn’t count with that six song “album” because it’s is an EP).
These are my top three album from the month of March to add to your playlist when you’re packing for Coachella (or helping your friend pack because you’re too broke to go).
The Vaccines: Combat Sports
For all you lost souls wondering where the bands are in a world that is surrounded by hip hop, look no further, I present to you the Vaccines. The Vaccines come all the way from over the pond in West London, England.
The Vaccines put forward a solid effort with their fourth studio album. The top hits for the album are “I Can’t Quit” and “Put it on a T-Shirt”.
But my favorites are some high energy magic that I can drive too and if you need some tunes when you’re driving down PCH, “Out on Street” and “Surfing the Sky” will help you get through the sunburn and overpriced food by the beach.
This album will do a great job in holding over your anticipation for the new Arctic Monkeys album. The Vaccines will be hitting the road this year, touring all around Europe. It’ll probably be end of 2018 or mid-2019 before anyone in the US can get tickets to a show in the States.
Kacey Musgraves: Golden Hour
I put this album here so I can look back two years from now and said I called it. Kacey Musgraves is on the rise and Harry Stylez better watch out because he wouldn’t be headlining if she keeps up dropping bangers. Kacey Musgraves has a Dolly Parton/Lana Del Ray feel to her sound but it’s still unique which is mind blowing to me. I can compare what she is doing to early Mumford and Sons where you know you have heard the sound before but it sounds so revolutionary like its brand new.
Golden Hour is a must buy especially when finals week comes up and you need some relaxing music to study too.
Close your eyes, the year is 2008. I was in high school and this song comes blaring from the locker room. I have no idea what it is but its good. So my high school self caves in and I can’t stop listening to this song. It’s Paper Planes by M.I.A.
The first time I listened to Superorganism Paper Planes was my immediate reaction. Superorganism is a good listen in the Spring because finals week is approaching and the only thing you want to do is go to the beach and not be stuck in a Thursday morning biology class. The first album was a good foundation for Superorganism but now lies the true test of any band, the coveted second album.
