This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 6, 2016


ANOHNI's Hopelessness is another stunning album from the Antony and the Johnsons lead singer, one of the year's most important albums.

Radiohead released its ninth album, A Moon Shaped Pool, Sunday.

James Blake's The Colour in Anything, Julianna Barwick's Will, Little Scream's Cult Following, and White Lung's Paradise are other releases I can recommend this week.
