It is a very, very good time to be a Flight Facilities fan in Los Angeles. Not only are we days away from the release of their sophomore album “FOREVER,” which — judging by the singles we’ve heard so far — is fodder for best of the year material, but they’re also part of an epic triple bill this weekend at Banc Of California stadium alongside Aussie compatriots Rüfüs Du Sol and Copenhagen-based trio WhoMadeWho. You can still grab tickets for the show this Friday if you want to check it out, and we highly recommend checking it out!
Other things we recommend you check out? Why, the rest of this week’s Top 30, of course. Mainstays Damon Albarn and Parquet Courts remain as worthy of your attention as always, but be sure to carve out some extra time for chart newcomers Snail Mail and Spiritualized. Your ears will be grateful.
