October 1st, 2013
It’s finally October! And with a new month comes new music, of course. Here are some albums we can’t wait to get our hands on:
Sleigh Bells — Bitter Rivals (October 8th)
Noise duo Sleigh Bells — best known for their songs Rill Rill and Crown on the Ground, which have been used in a number of movie trailers and commercials — are back with a new album that’s just as unabashedly loud and in your face as their previous releases. Bitter Rivals was produced by guitarist Derek Miller and mixed by Andrew Dawson, who is well known for his recent work on Yeezus and Watch the Throne.
Shad — Flying Colours (October 15th)
Two-time Polaris Music Prize shortlist nominee Shad is going to take another stab at the Canadian music prize next year with his new album, Flying Colours. Packed with the same intelligent and thoughtful raps as his previous releases, Flying Colours also features guest appearances from some of the country’s most talented artists, k-os, Saukrates and Lights.
Katy Perry — Prism (October 22nd)
We might have no clue what to expect from Katy Perry’s third album, Prism, but we do know that we are super excited to finally get a new album from the pop star. With a slew of super successful, and definitely different, tracks out already, we can’t wait to see what other new tricks Perry has up her sleeves. Either way, she will roar and we will hear and love it.
Arcade Fire — Reflektor (October 29th)
Canadian music fans have a lot to look forward to in this month’s biggest release, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor. We’ve been following their every move since they released their first single Reflektor, and with three more songs to obsess over thanks to their recent 30-minute concert special, we can already predict this album to be one of the best this year. Mark our words!
Sky Ferreira — Night Time, My Time (October 29th)
It’s been a year since Sky Ferreira burst onto the scene with her catchy single, Everything Is Embarrassing, but we’re finally getting a full-length release from the singer. And if it’s anything like the minimalist electro-pop we’ve heard from her so far — she also recently released a new single, You’re Not the One — then you best believe this will be on repeat on our playlists for months to come.
