Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of September 2023. September felt like a rare burst activity from the music industry in a year with really inconsistent momentum, managing to offer a fairly substantial amount of notable albums worth diving into. First: Alex offers his takes on the sophomore release from Olivia Rodrigo, TesseracT’s comeback after 5 years, and whether or not the newest Steven Wilson album breaks the pattern of his solo releases. Next: Mark praises the newest efforts from Mitski and Oneohtrix Point Never while also touching on collaborative efforts from the likes of Conway the Machine & 38 Spesh, MIKE/Wiki/The Alchemist, Smoke DZA & Flying Lotus, and more! Finally: Robert dives into some worthwhile heavy offerings from Harn’s Way, Cannibal Corpse, Tomb Mold, and KEN mode, talks about the the latest phenomenal effort from Armand Hammer as well as the corniest rap release of the year courtesy of Joey Valence & Brae (spoiler: corny in a good way, says he), and checks in for his latest appointment with the music of Code Orange.
Your hosts this month are Robert (@RobBarracuda) and Mark (@MAK2HybridMedia). Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and Google Podcasts.
