This week’s best albums

– Irish rock trio Adebisi Shank is as ecstatic and energetic as ever on its third LP, infusing new stylistic zest into its skittering, hyper-melodic tunes.

– On her anticipated first full-length, London’s FKA Twigs continues to offer a striking take on R&B with her disjointed and haunting perception of love.

– After eight years without an album, Dilated Peoples returns to showcase an assortment of creative passions, all amid the group’s signature sound.

Honorable mentions

Botanist: VI: Flora (The Flenser)

Mim0sa: Future Trill Vol. 2 (False Idol Muzik)
