"‘Singles," Future Islands
Release date: March 25
Why we like it: Most people arrived at Future Islands’ new album through their March appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” at which frontman Samuel Herring charged through a searing rendition of the single “Seasons (Waiting on You)." But the aptly named “Singles” is far more than one memorable performance or song. The entire album is packed with synth-pop perfection: catchy hooks, moody bass lines and bittersweet lyrics that stick in your head.
