King Khan and the Shrines (Canada/Germany) – A decade of extensive touring and personal tragedy took a toll on cultish anti-hero Arish Ahmad Khan, the flamboyant frontman of the psychedelic band, but he is now back with his 9-piece orchestral band and the first new album since 2008, the result of his soul-searching and rising triumphantly back from the ashes. For a taste, stream it here.
