    Why does every artist have to drop their album on the same day? For us listeners, it's a challenge to catch up with every new release, especially when it's several different releases from all really exciting artists. So to cut through the noise and make sure you have all of your ducks in a row, we're briefly rounding up the most important albums to listen to this week.

    1. St. Vincent - Masseduction

    Annie Clark of St. Vincent has never released a bad record, but this might just be her most realized, most important project to date. Co-produced by Clark and Jack Antonoff, the album is filled with bright colors and explores sexuality, lost heroes, and lost lovers.

    MUST LISTENS: "Los Ageless," "New York," "Pills"

    2. Beck - Colors

    Finally! Beck started teasing this album two years ago with the release of the lead single "Dreams" and now it is officially out in the world. On the record he attempts pop and boy, does he succeed. Every song is a catchy, danceable hit.

    MUST LISTENS: "Colors," "Dreams," "Wow"

    3. King Krule - The OOZ

    English singer/songwriter/producer Archy Marshall has released his new 19 track-long album under King Krule. It is his best album to date, as he explores the introspective wonders of being an outsider.

    MUST LISTENS: "Dum Surfer," "Czech One," "Half Man Half Shark"

    4. Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile - Lotta Sea Lice

    Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett make up to be pretty much the greatest team ever. Nothing will warm your heart more than this album.

    MUST LISTENS: "Continental Breakfast," "Over Everything"

    5. The Front Bottoms - Going Grey

    The New Jersey-based indie rockers are out with their fourth record via Fueled By Ramen, and it is their most cathartic yet.

    MUST LISTENS: "Vacation Town," "Bae," "Peace Sign"

    6. P!nk - Beautiful Trauma

    P!nk is back with her first album in five years, Beautiful Trauma. After hearing the heart-wrenching singles and P!nk's speech to her daughter at the 2017 VMAs, we can't help but love her.

    MUST LISTENS: "What About Us," "Whatever You Want," "Beautiful Trauma"
