No stranger to the worldwide festival circuit, Grouplove has made an album that brilliantly showcases their richly narrated songs with elaborate production.

FORQ is an all-star ensemble of sorts, but with the spirit and cohesiveness of a garage band. Though based in New York City, FORQ retains a subtle Texas accent, where League and Thomas established a fast friendship and musical rapport through almost two years of weekly gigs. Upon moving to New York, League formed a group deeply rooted in that distinctly Texan groove, with both the fire and inventiveness that the Big Apple is known for. This second album from FORQ was released in September 2015.

Colors is extreme, featuring some of the best and worst songs that Beck has ever written. After the wave of melancholy that engulfed 2014’s Grammy award-winning Morning Phase – created after a traumatic spinal injury – he has returned robust and emboldened. Songs are energised and enthused; imagine Midnite Vultures frolicking in a kids’ ball pool, wired on echinacea-infused green juice. On the winning side is its title track, his ebullient Once in a Lifetime moment, propelled by a funky flute solo. There is also supreme, sassy guitar anthem Dreams, the existential majesty of Dear Life and Wow, basically Beck’s take on the Ying Yang Twins’ Wait (the Whisper Song) – without the rude bits. This astonishing run of singles battles with the quasi-reggae of No Distraction, or the Maroon 5-like Square One, on an album that’s as shonky as it is sublime.

The self-titled fifth album from Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Ayo is a collection of soulful, sometimes reggae-tinged folk songs. On Ayo, the musician stepped up in the writing and production departments to take on more responsibility than on her past efforts, such as Joyful and Gravity at Last. The result is an album derived from an eclectic musical background that touches on a wide range of themes, such as her call for justice on the Ferguson-inspired “Boom Boom”, or casting aside material things and figuring out what really matters on the album’s opening track, “Nothing”.
