The 10 Albums You Need to Hear in July

We're looking forward to releases from Neil Young, Shabazz Palaces, Waxahatchee, and more.

Xordox — Neospection (July 14)

Xordox is the latest alias of the great JG Thirlwell — it makes a change from variations on “Fetus,” I guess — and it finds him collaborating with Flavorwire favorite Sarah Lipstate, aka Noveller. The result is gorgeous — the music sounds like it should be soundtracking journeys to distant stars, and they’re journeys that I want to go on.
