New England’s Best Albums Of August

Spread the love

We thought June and July were hectic, but that was just the warm-up.  New England musicians continued their summer takeover into August with what was easily the best month of the year in terms of quality releases.  POMAGRANITE started things off on the first of the month with an exceptional sophomore offering, Oompa and Cousin Stizz dropped their highly-anticipated albums within four days of each other, Clairo gave us her long-awaited debut while touring with Khalid, Estee Nack and al.divino continued to rap circles around just about everybody, and Chase Murphy provided us with more intoxicating flows and melodies.

New Hampshire producer Ochophono (formerly known as 8-Bza) released a project featuring New England emcees Akrobatik, Bugout, Time of Time & Lepp, ILL By Instinct, Mr. Lif, Codenine of Tragic Allies, Cody Pope, and many more.  meetVoutside led Tha Village through every day of the week on “What Day Is It?”.  Just before appearing on Food Network’s “America’s Worst Cooks”, Waltham native Oak Lonetree teamed up with Framingham’s King Author and for the release of OAKINGADZ, and album produced entirely by EGADZ.  These are just some of the notable projects that came to light in the last few weeks.  Here’s the complete list:
