Here are five new albums you should check out this week!

Prince Daddy & The Hyena – “C’mon & Smoke Me Up”

Album: Cosmic Thrill Seekers (Counter Intuitive Records)

Prince Daddy & The Hyena have rapidly grown in popularity over the past couple years. Listening to “C’mon & Smoke Me Up,” a track off their new album Cosmic Thrill Seekers, it’s easy to see why. Catchy, stoner punk music with relatable lyrics: it’s a formula that the group have mastered better than just about anyone.

The Appleseed Cast – “Time the Destroyer”

Album: The Fleeting Light of Impermanence (Graveface Records)

Their first full-length record in six years, The Fleeting Light of Impermanence adds another entry to The Appleseed Cast discography that has been growing since the band’s first release in 1998. Shifting away from the emo sound they helped pioneer, the band are moving in a more experimental direction. But don’t worry, if there’s one thing The Appleseed Cast never does, it’s disappoint.

Heilung – “Norupo”

Album: Futha (Season of Mist Records)

A self described “amplified history” band, Heilung mix modern sounds with traditional, nordic folk music from the iron age. It’s different from what many music fans might be used to, but their music is too fascinating not to check out.

Summer Cannibals – “Behave”

Album: Can’t Tell Me No (Tiny Engines Records)

Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Summer Cannibals are a rock band that have mastered both melody and grit. Enjoy Can’t Tell Me No, which is out today, and keep an eye out for a full U.S. tour starting in August.

Bloody Hammers – “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie”

Album: The Summoning (Napalm Records)

Horror-rock group Bloody Hammers are back with another album of terrifyingly delightful songs. If you’re a fan of classic horror movies, or wish Halloween happened 365 days a year, this band is for you.
