What is it about this particular October day that is irresistible to artists releasing new albums? No one can say! Aubrie Sellers and Jade Jackson team up for a barnstorming collaboration, Breaking Point. For their first album of all-new material in years, My Morning Jacket tap into the energy from their renowned live performances. Azniv Korkejian’s third album as Bedouine, the warm and welcoming Waysides, is a perfect early fall companion. Entering their second decade as a band, Parquet Courts stretch out on the potent Sympathy for Life. Far In is Roberto Lange’s seventh album as Helado Negro, and it offers some of his most expansive material yet.

Longtime Philly favorite Dave Hause celebrates family (and trips down the shore) on Blood Harmony. Guitarist Meg Duffy’s skills are on showcase on their third album as hand habits, the sonically rich Fun House. Teaming up with producer Adrian Younge, Los Angeles trio La Luz deliver a self-titled set of swirling psychedelia. Future Past is a triumphant return to classic-era excess from pop icons Duran Duran. Havana’s Orquesta Akokán evoke Cuba’s big-band heyday (with a modern Daptone twist) on their sophomore collection, 16 Rayos. PRESS PLAY on these albums (and many, many more) below…
