Sleep Well Beast by The National
Genre: Indie Rock
A huge step away from the drearier music of the past, oldtimers The National have used their latest release to explore a new, more energetic sound. This album, which has been widely regarded as a concept piece about divorce, gives The National a chance to stop and think about how much has changed since they entered the music world and they do so in perfect fashion.
Younger Now by Miley Cyrus
It would be an understatement to say that Miley has been on a long and winding journey since her foray into the pop world over a decade ago. From child pop star, to teen it-girl, to ‘bad influence,’ Cyrus has worn a lot of hats. She’s returning to her roots in her latest album, using country influences to create soft pop works like “Malibu.”
