The Back­story: Sound­ing like a gen­tly ec­cen­tric, Val­leys Stere­o­lab, Cate Le Bon’s third al­bum Mug Mu­seum was one of 2013’ s high­lights, rais­ing ex­pec­ta­tions for where the now Los An­ge­les-based Welsh singer might go with her fourth al­bum.

The Clincher: An­gu­lar and sur­real for much of the time, Le Bon’s fol­low-up ramps up both fac­tors to de­light­ful ef­fect. What They Say: “With this record there was a lot more aban­don. It just seemed to come to­gether ac­ci­den­tally on pur­pose.” Key Track: Won­der­ful.
