The Killers haven’t released an album since 2012, but they haven’t released a Killers album since Hot Fuss, the 2004 debut that nearly everyone loves. I can’t say if Wonderful Wonderful reaches those heights (reviews so far are tepid), but I do love that there’s a song on there about the Mike Tyson and Buster Douglas fight.
The only other new release that catches my attention this week is Phoebe Bridgers’ Stranger in the Alps. I’ve not heard her sing a solitary note before today, but Album of The Year says she’s on Dead Oceans, the same label behind Destroyer, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Japanese Breakfast, all artists who make rich, atmospheric, poetic music. It only took listening to the first two songs on the album to click “Add To Library.”
