Monthly Album Roundup – April 2020

Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of April 2020. The world is still kind of messed up because of this whole plague thing, seeing a number of high-profile releases being pushed out of an April release window, but there still was not a shortage of interesting albums to pick from. First up: Alex comments on the much-hyped new release from Fiona Apple, the debut solo album from Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, and delivers a beefy takedown of Sam Hunt’s latest long-in-the-works bro-country mess. Next, Mark praises the latest projects from Yves Tumor, Thundercat, Westside Gunn, and finds himself pleasantly surprised by Rina Sawayama’s debut album. Finally, Robert is hyped about the long overdue return of The Black Dahlia Murder, offers praise to the heavy new offerings of Ulcerate and Like Rats, finds himself thoroughly amused at Jarrod Alonge’s return to parody music, and is unfortunately underwhelmed by the newest Nightwish project.
