This week we got 5 album suggestions by the same person, old time Revolver contributor: Myrnz
Thank you Myrnz for your hipster enhancing suggestions!
1. Corpo-Mente – Corpo Mente (2015)
If you’re an aspiring hipster, you should listen to this now! Baroque meets Opera meets Trip-hop meets experimental/acoustic: Corpo-Mente’s music is all that and more: with a sound so unique, it’s guaranteed to leave you itching for more.
2. Anna Calvi – Anna Calvi (2011)
Forget Florence Welsh and her machine: It’s Anna’s time now. This lady screams talent: from her sensational voice, to her strumming skills and powerful live performances. She goes down on my bucket list as one of the must-watch acts before I bite the dust. “One Breath”, her second album, is also worth checking.
3. The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses (1989)
One of the most overlooked bands in the history of British music. There’s more to them than their classic hit “I wanna be adored”. If you think Oasis were great, then The Stone Roses are the right band for you. And if you’re not big on the Gallagher’s, then at least listen to tracks 1, 3, 8 and 11.
4. Theater of Tragedy – Aegis (1998)
if you were born in the 80s, you probably started wearing black eyeliner and black nail polish around the time this album was released. You had a crush on Liv Kristine and grunge music was a thing of the past. Gothic was in and nobody did it better than Theater of Tragedy. Embrace Liv’s angelic voice and the occasional death grunts: let Aegis take you on a true “Beauty & The Beast” gothic metal ride.

5. Rush – Clockwork Angels (2012)
You’re probably thinking: “hmm, aren’t these guys dead already? if not, they must be pretty old by now”. Yes, they might not be the youngest musicians around, but this Canadian trio still kick ass! The pioneers of Progressive music, they inspired many generations and this album is here to teach generation Z what true music sounds like.
