La Sera is the side project of Vivian Girls bassist Katy Goodman, and while there are stylistic similarities to her main band’s lo-fi indie-pop sound, Sees The Light stands firmly on its own two feet as a solid LP of fuzzy garage-rock based tales of heartbreak and youth.

Rocket Juice & The Moon – Rocket Juice & The Moon
This album from the Damon Albarn led super-group that also includes Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers bassist) and renowned Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, as well as an appearance from Erykah Badu, is more an organic collection of jams than individual tracks, but if you like your music funky, you’ll definitely want to give this one a listen.

Rusko – Songs
British producer Rusko must have set out to prove that he can make more than the brutally aggressive dubstep that he is mainly known for, and as such, this album will divide his fans. Leaning heavily on Jamaican musical culture, Songs is mostly filled with a futuristic electro-reggae sound, but does comes armed with a few dance floor ready heavy-hitters like “Somebody To Love”.

Breton – Other People’s Problems
Breton may be first and foremost an art and film collective, but it’s their music that you should get acquainted with, specifically their inventive, powerful debut album. They combine elements of math-rock with electronic wizadry and no fear of experimentation, and the result is exciting, vibrant and well worth your time.

Madonna – MDNA
Madonna’s done a new album, decided to call it MDNA, and has now started making embarrassing drug references and pissing off the Dance music community. Way to stay relevant, Madge.
