If you’re a fan of R&B/hip-hop concept albums, such as Janelle Monáe’s The ArchAndroid or Deltron 3030’s self-titled album, give this one a listen. Like the aforementioned recordings, Logic’s latest offering is a sci-fi concept album.

New Music Friday - October 16, 2015

Hot new music from many different traditions this week. Check out the latest every Friday. Here are this week's picks:

  • The Color Before the Sun by Coheed and Cambria
    Neo-Prog. The New York power trio's unusually accessible eighth album is their first outside of the epic Amory Wars saga.
  • Dopamine by Børns

Psycadelik Thoughtz by B.o.B

Released last month with very little fanfare, hip hop artist B.o.B’s fourth release alternates between irresistibly funky beats and sweet guitar melodies. Although B.o.B still breaks out the raps, his singing voice is beautifully on display on tracks such as “Violet Vibrato.” The artist described the album in a Twitter post, saying, "This body of work is more than music, it's an experience." It’s also been compared to some of his earlier mixtape works in his Bobby Ray persona. This offering lives up to his No Genre label - it’s eclectic and fresh.

Here are the top picks from the last week in June, as appraised by the editors at allmusic.com (who also wrote the mini-reviews below). All links will take you to the relevant page on hoopla where you can listen to the music right now.

There are many things that just feel so right about The Weeknd. Maybe it’s the forlorn echoing, resounding bass and the falsetto register of Abel Tesfaye. Simply put, The Weeknd’s songs are dark, moody and lustful. Sometimes reminiscent of Michael Jackson, Prince, or Massive Attack with contemporary equals such as Frank Ocean or Drake, the Weeknd‘s Trilogy is a remastered release of his first mixtapes that contain some of his very best work.
