When it rains it pours. April 8 is a crazy-packed release day, with a ton of notable albums, including new ones from the singer Syd (from The Internet), the shape-shifting, guitar-pop artist Omar Apollo, Camila Cabello, an all-star collaboration between Girl Talk, Big K.R.I.T., Wiz Khalifa and Smoke DZA, and a whole bunch more.
