      It seems like the music world is already beginning to gear up for what is sure to be one of the busiest Septembers in some time, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few late summer gems worth listening to.

      Kesha delivered what is sure to be the most talked about album of the week, and the long wait was worth it. Meanwhile, a Cannes-winning soundtrack grabbed our attention, and a former Dum Dum Girl changed her tune.

      Elsewhere, The Cribs kept up their usual antics, while a member of Garbage set out on a new project. So without further ado, here are our favorite albums of the week:

      Kesha — Rainbow

      Kesha’s new album Rainbow is one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year, and for good reason. Over the past several years, the singer has been marred in a very public courtroom battle with former producer Dr. Luke. Thankfully, the new album gives us a chance to concentrate on Kesha’s special talents as an artist. Rainbow finds the singer moving forward and opening up. The album is filled with personal strength anthems that remind us why we all fell in love with the singer years ago. It is a powerful effort that finds the singer unafraid of being vulnerable, and well-worth the four-year wait.

      Oneohtrix Point Never — The Good Time [OST]

      We rarely feature soundtracks in this list, but when an artist wins the Cannes Soundtrack award, we are going to turn our heads. Now that award-winning soundtrack has been released and it’s as stunning as the critics said it was. The Good Time, from the Safdie brother’s film of the same name, is a vivid dreamscape full of high-octane moments. There may be some criticism due to the fact that this isn’t an ‘official’ album and therefore is relatively fragmented, but that doesn’t take away from the record’s rich textures and superb quality.

      Frankie Rose — Cage Tropical

      Former Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls, and Beverly member Frankie Rose has already put together an impressive run of solo efforts, but her latest album may be the strongest yet. Cage Tropical finds Rose in a difficult position, how do you make something that sounds new without alienating what you built your career around? She’s known for her guitar-pop anthems that shined during her tenure with previous bands, but since then has taken a more synth-y approach. On the new album, she is able to tweak her style without distancing herself too far from what got her here.

      The Cribs — 24-7 Rock Star S***

      During the mid-2000s, it seemed like The Cribs might be on the verge of rock stardom. However, they shunned the spotlight and instead positioned themselves as outsiders, forever judging the scene they only partially participated in. It’s been a few years since the band was performing at award shows, but that doesn’t mean they’ve changed their tune. Rock Star S*** finds the punkish indie rockers still delivering their lo-fi guitar hooks. If you enjoyed it then, you’ll probably enjoy it again now.

      5 Billion In Diamonds — 5 Billion In Diamonds

      Gravity Rules by 5 Billion In Diamonds on VEVO.

      When you’re a member of what was once one of the biggest rock bands in the world, it can be tough to escape its shadow. Especially when that shadow is partially cast by Shirley Manson. Nonetheless, Butch Vig has managed to make a name for himself as both a producer and a musician — he did produce Nirvana’s Nevermind after all. His new band, 5 Billion in Diamonds, have finally released their debut self-titled album.
