After a short break, PRESS PLAY returns with, what else, a collection of newly released albums for your perusal. Announced (and subsequently performed in its entirety) at the Newport Folk Festival, No Rules Sandy is the fourth full-length from playful electronic duo Sylvan Esso. When Toronto indie rockers Kiwi Jr. joined us at NON-COMM earlier this year, they played a handful of selections from their newest, the Dan Boeckner-produced Chopper. Following a tour with The Who (!!), vanguard Americana singer Amythyst Kiah branches out with an EP of surprising covers. Though they’ve worked together several times in the past, Reset is the most collaborative work yet from Panda Bear (of Animal Collective) and Sonic Boom (of Spacemen 3).

Released on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records, Kelsey Waldon’s No Regular Dog is a timely and timeless collection of Nashville charm. Expanding on last year’s already ambitious Big Mess, legendary composer Danny Elfman shares the spotlight with guests and remixers on Bigger. Messier.  Back home in Philly, longtime Roots MC Black Thought teams up with journeyman producer Danger Mouse for the eclectic Cheat Codes, and newcomers Doll Spirit Vessel deploy wiry guitars and sneaky hooks on their debut, What Stays.
