It’s our favorite day of the week here at SXSW HQ - New Music Tuesday! Although we don’t have quite the large selection offered up by SXSW 2014 alumni artists last week, don’t sleep on this week’s list of new releases.
It seems as though this is the week of debut albums: PHOX, Bad Suns, Peter Matthew Bauer and SomeKindaWonderful are all releasing their very first LPs today in the US. LA rapper Ab-Soul puts out his third studio album today on Top Dawg Entertainment, which apparently includes a 23-minute battle rap with Daylyt. We also have an honorable mention from a SXSW alumni act who didn’t perform at the 2014 festival: Norwegian singer and multi-instrumentalist Bernhoft is finally releasing his third solo album in the States. The album peaked at #1 on the Norwegian charts after its release earlier this year.
There’s plenty more music to digest - you’ll find the list of this week’s SXSW 2014 Artist Alumni releases below. You can also catch a peek of these albums throughout the day on SXSWfm!
