20 albums you need to hear

Published by BARONMAG

Fall is on our doorstep and at Baron, we are heading to our local record store to find upcoming albums (even if we admit to listening to our favorite tunes in streaming) and discuss with record store shop owners who will advise us of new releases and other small jewels not to be missed for our collection.

Always listen to your albums with a good sound system and appreciate each note, by equipping yourself with a good turntable, an audio mixer, and good speakers. Or better yet, get inspired by the work of producers and musicians by taking a music production course and create your own musical masterpiece,

20 albums you need to hear


Over the course of the last two decades, Detroit-based duo ADULT.(Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have released six albums and nineteen EPs and singles across some of our favorite labels: Mute, Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey, Clone Records, Third Man Records, and their own label, the revered Ersatz Audio. November 1998 marked their first release: the five-song 12″ “Dispassionate Furniture”. This September, twenty years later, Dais Records is proud to announce ADULT.’s seventh full length album: THIS BEHAVIOR. [Ghostly Song/Ersatz Publishing]

CLUTCH | Book Of Bad Decisions

Maryland rockers CLUTCH have announced Book of Bad Decisions as the title of their new studio album. CLUTCH’s 12th studio album is scheduled for a worldwide release on September 7th, 2018 via their own Weathermaker Music label. The album was recorded at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN by producer Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) and consists of 15 new tracks. “With Vance Powell as a producer, we were able to make a very different kind of an album. The songs feel as if they could jump out of the speakers!” says drummer Jean-Paul Gaster. Bassist Dan Maines seconds that when he says “Recording in Nashville with Vance Powell gave us a new and fresh approach towards making an album that truly captures the live energy of Clutch in a way I don’t think we’ve done before.” Guitarist Tim Sult adds “Laying down guitar tracks with Vance was fun and inspiring. Going through and trying out his and his engineer, Mike Fahey’s collection of vintage amps was one of my favorite recording studio experiences. I think the outro solo of “Emily Dickinson” turned out particularly great.” [Weathermaker Music]

The album cover was designed by renowned photographer Dan Winters.

Mothers | Render Another Ugly Method 

Mothers attempt to exist in two places at once – both singular and collaborative, sprawling and concise, present and distant. Kristine Leschper, songwriter and founding member of the project, says that it is in the space between opposites that she finds herself. The multifaceted is, by nature, fragmented – each facet reflecting a slightly different perspective of the whole. [Anti-]

Supersuckers | Suck It

With the odometer clicking on three decades, the Supersuckers mark the occasion with a resounding “Suck It.”! Off the blocks, this 12th studio album showcases a ruthless, get-it-done trio that sounds rebuilt from Motorhead parts! Compact disc digi-pack. [Acetate Records]

Voivod | The Wake

In 2018, Voivod’s 14th studio album, The Wake, is upon us. The band’s original members, drummer Michel “Away” Langevin and vocalist Denis “Snake” Belanger, find themselves reinvigorated and reenergized by the presence of guitarist Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain and new bassist Dominic “Rocky” Laroche. Mongrain, now celebrating ten years in the band, has done a more than respectable job replacing original guitarist, the ever-beloved Denis “Piggy” D’Amour. His contribution to the making of The Wake was as integral to the new album as was Piggy’s leadership during his reign. The Wake steers the Voivod spacecraft through a tangled, tantalizing storyline, woven into the most maze-like, edge-of-your-seat musical experience the band have embarked upon since those heady days of the late ‘80s. Songs such as “The End of Dormancy,” “Iconspiracy” and “Spherical Perspective” churn and twist in such a way that no Voivod devotee could possibly have wished for more. [Century Media]
