April showers us with a bevy of great new releases this year. There’s the return of long-running indie artists like Bloc Party, resurgent records from throwback maestros like Father John Misty, metal-as-fuck offerings from the likes of Meshuggah, and Scrunchies carrying on the mantel of riot grrrls in the best possible way; in other words, something for everyone. Hopefully, you’ll find something here you didn’t know was coming—or better yet, discover a great new artist you never even knew existed.
