The 10 Albums You Need to Hear in August

A selection of albums to take your mind off the fact that you may or may not be actually melting. (Also: Frank Ocean? Maybe? This Friday, y'say?!)

Wild Beasts — Boy King (August 5)

The UK quartet are streaming this, their fifth album, in its entirety via iTunes as we speak, so you might as well just head over there and have a listen. Our first impressions are that it’s as beautifully flamboyant as ever, which is entirely OK with us.
