LP, a new album from country superstar Miranda Lambert, the latest installment from Atlanta post-punk favorites Omni and so much more. Scroll down to hear 10 essential new records, which are now available to stream as of today (Nov. 1).

1. Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox: Myths 004

Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox both released records earlier this year—Le Bon’s Reward and Deerhunter’s Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, co-produced by Le Bon—but they’re already back with more, and together this time. The two have banded together for a fourth installment of indie label Mexican Summer’s Myths series. The Myths EPs each feature a Mexican Summer artist (in this case, Le Bon) in collaboration with a musician who works outside the label: The previous recordings have brought together Connan Mockasin and Dev Hynes of Blood Orange; Weyes Blood and Ariel Pink; and Dungen and Woods. Le Bon and Cox completed their seven-track contribution, Myths 004, in just one week. All recording took place in Marfa, Texas, during the annual Marfa Myths music and arts festival in 2018, of which Mexican Summer is a co-founder. —Amanda Gersten

2. Earl Sweatshirt: Feet of Clay

A year after the release of his critically-acclaimed album, Some Rap Songs, rapper Earl Sweatshirt has dropped a new seven-track project titled Feet of Clay, which features Haiti’s Mach-Hommy and Mavi with additional production from Alchemist and Ovrkast. Earl says of the project, whose title is a reference to the Bible’s Book of Daniel, “’FOC’ is a collection of observations and feelings recorded during the death throes of a crumbling empire.” —Lizzie Manno

3. Miranda Lambert: Wildcard

Miranda Lambert  is consistently involved with the best projects in country music, year after year. In 2016, her album The Weight of These Wings proved yet again that her power as a solo artist is nearly unmatched in her genre. Last year, as one-third of beloved country supergroup Pistol Annies, she left her mark on Interstate Gospel, the story of three heart-broken (and world-wearied) women and their resilience despite it all. This year, she has a songwriting credit on one of the most moving songs on the year’s best country release, The Highwomen’s “My Only Child.” Now for the most recent piece of the puzzle, Lambert is back with another Wildcard, her seventh solo LP. She’s as sassy, smart and vengeful as ever. She’s a storyteller and outlaw, a singer of love songs and an ex-boyfriend’s worst nightmare. I’m just glad she keeps taking us along for the ride down this bumpy, red-dirt road. —Ellen Johnson

4. Omni: Networker

Atlanta post-punk outfit Omni have shared Networker, their third album and first for renowned label Sub Pop. They wrote Networker’s 11 songs between tours and four studio sessions, with their live show and approach to songwriting each informing the other. The band recorded the LP—which follows 2016’s Deluxe and 2017’s Multi-task—in a cabin in Vienna, Ga., backed by their longtime collaborator Nathaniel Higgins. —Scott Russell

5. R.E.M.: Monster (25th Anniversary Edition)

R.E.M.  have released a 25th anniversary remastered reissue of their ninth studio album, Monster, which is available now on various physical formats, as well as digitally. The five-CD and Blu-ray box set includes a 2019 remixed version of Monster by original producer Scott Litt, plus a CD of previously unreleased demos and a full live show from 1995 in Chicago. Digital download and streaming editions of the album include all the remastered, remixed and live content from the box set. —Lizzie Manno

6. Turnover: Altogether

Turnover’s music has always found comfort in the ethereal—ghostly vocals, reverb-laced guitar leads—but while past releases were steeped in melancholy, Altogether emits a distinctly danceable energy. The project is an amalgamation of each of the members’ unique songwriting styles. Living on separate coasts, the group’s three members wrote Altogether apart. Frontman Austin Getz says of the trio’s diverse musical taste, “Collectively we like everything from jazz to folk, disco to rock and roll, and a lot in between, and it’s where we all intersect that things start to feel special.” —Hayden Goodridge

7. TR/ST: The Destroyer – 2

TR/ST has unveiled the second part of his double LP, The Destroyer – 2, on Grouch Via House Arrest. TR/ST is the project of Canadian electronic artist Robert Alfons, and this two-part release is his first project since 2014’s Joyland. The Destroyer leans on the shadowy side of electronic music, utilizing industrial and ambient textures and offering a clear departure from Joyland’s euphoric, chugging dance-pop. —Lizzie Manno

8. Sean Henry: A Jump From The High Dive

Sean Posila, who records as Sean Henry, shared his second full-length, A Jump From The High Dive, today via Double Double Whammy , which follows 2018’s Fink. The Connecticut-raised singer/songwriter retreated home to work on his new record, splitting his time between making music and listening to classic hip-hop and ’90s alternative CDs in his car. On A Jump From The High Dive, Henry lugs around a big suitcase full of bittersweet memories and tries to figure out where to fit it into his present-day life—do you shove it in a closet, throw it out and start fresh, parse through it and salvage what you want or proudly display its contents? Through lenses of wonky pop, alt-rock and even hip-hop, Henry’s heartfelt, charming songs feel like they’ve been unearthed rather than created. —Lizzie Manno

9. Sudan Archives: Athena

Cincinnati-born, Los Angeles-based violinist, singer-songwriter and producer Brittney Parks (aka Sudan Archives) dropped her debut album Athena, which features the stellar singles “Confessions” and “Black Vivaldi Sonata.” “Confessions” is nothing if not a triumph, with Sudan Archives weaving together strings and synths to serve as her platform from which to demand, “Watch me frolic through the fields, bitch.” Sudan Archives collaborated with producers Washed Out, Paul White (Danny Brown, Charli XCX) and Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Sampha, Adele), resulting in a more wide-ranging release; she likens her previous EPs to “a haiku of what the album is.” —Scott Russell

10. Yak: Atlas Complex EP

After the release of their second studio album Pursuit of Momentary Happiness, British rock trio Yak return with a new four-track release, Atlas Complex EP. It was mostly recorded at Nashville’s Third Man Studio with additional recording in South London, and it’s noticeably more reserved when compared to their two raucous rock ‘n’ roll LPs, though it offers occasional moments of clamor. Frontman Oli Burslem says of the inspiration behind the EP’s title, “The ‘atlas complex’ is centred around an idea of losing all sense of everything. It’s a state of mind in which a person believes that the world is on their shoulders and they’re unable to deal with what they perceive as endless problems and uncertainty.” —Lizzie Manno
