Offa Rex/ ‘The Queen Of Hearts’/ Nonesuch


The record Colin Meloy has wanted to make for years: The new project featuring English songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney and The Decemberists draws on traditional English-Irish-Scottish repertoire to create a transatlantic musical conversation honoring the give-and-take relationship between British and American music while pulling from modern psychedelia and folk rock.

Mura Masa

Mura Masa/ ‘Mura Masa’/ Anchor Point Records/Downtown/Interscope


The 21-year-old producer’s much-anticipated debut LP is his vision for what pop music should sound like in 2017: Prince-style funk sitting next to trap with Calypso-inflected house intertwined with acoustic balladry. These 13 tracks feature an extraordinarily diverse mix of collaborators, from Damon Albarn and Christine & The Queens to Charli XCX and A$AP Rocky.

Mitchell Tenpenny/ ‘Linden Ave’/ Riser House Records


The Nashville native who co-wrote the Billboard Top 10 hit “If the Boot Fits” (Granger Smith) releases his debut EP. Named for the street on which his grandmother, a pioneering Nashville music executive and inspiration to Mitchell, once lived, the adventurous, genre-bending five-track EP flies in the face of the contemporary country formulas and shows off a diverse set of influences from Michael Jackson and John Mayer to the Oak Ridge Boys and R. Kelly.
