#NewMusicFriday: King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Broken Bells, Charlie Puth and more

Canadian indie-pop outfit Alvvays release their third studio album Blue Rev and first in five years. The making of the record was disrupted and delayed by flooding and theft and in turn Blue Rev has become a symbol of perseverance and moving forward. The body features previously released tracks Pharmacist and Easy On Your Own?.

After four years, Broken Bells are back with their highly anticipated third Album Into the Blue. The record features the previously released track We’re Not In Orbit Yet… Broken Bells landed in the Top #10 on the ARIA Albums Chart with their self titled debut and reached #14 with their sophomore album After The Disco.



With two Top #5 ARIA Singles and two Top #10 ARIA Albums under his belt already, Charlie Puth is back with his new album Charlie. Charlie spoke on the body in an Instagram post, stating to his fans; “This album was born on the internet, and I’ve had so much fun making it in front of all of you this past year… I hope you scream cry every word when I sing these songs on tour because they wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.”

Australian singer-songwriter Indigo Sparke releases her second full length album Hysteria. The body follows her debut Echo, produced by Aaron Dessner from The National. Hysteria features previously released track, Pressure in My Chest  which dropped alongside a music video directed by New York based, Australian film maker, Madeline Clayton.

Two times Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album ARIA Award Winning band, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard release their 21st album Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava. The record will be followed by two more bodies of work in this year, Laminated Denim and Changes. 

Already ten years into her music career, 21 year old Willow is back with her fifth studio album . The body features previously released song it’s my fault, which according to Willow is about “what it’s like to hold ourselves equally accountable for the emotional pain we feel while also allowing ourselves to be human and fully process all of our feelings without shame.” Hit single Whip My Hair peaked in the Top #20 on the ARIA Singles Chart in 2010.
