Album reviews: Florence + The Machine, Jason Derulo, Dawes and more!

Welcome to another edition of Skip Or Repeat, capsule album reviews for the week of June 2.

For this week's batch, summer comes out swinging. And crying a little. And bobbing its head thoughtfully, reminiscing about the old days.

Florence + The Machine's “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”; Dawes' “All Your Favorite Bands”; Jason Derulo's “Everything Is 4”; Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard's “Django and Jimmie”; Jamie XX's “In Colour”; and Major Lazer's “Peace Is The Mission” are all out this week. Does anybody take the cake?

And if none of those are your sweets, try on worldly Algiers' self-titled album, Eternal Summers' sunny “Gold and Stone,” or Queen Latifah's take on Bessie Smith and other blues masters' songs in the “Bessie” soundtrack.
