Last heard here on Stack №110
(and The Visitor
), Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Kadhja Bonet announces her new album on Fat Possum, sharing this soulful, psychedelic, retro-feeling lead single.
One of the most celebrated
works of the season belongs to experimental pop songwriter Amen Dunes (Stack №6
). Released last week, Freedom
is "a momentous, unprecedentedly confessional record for the New Yorker," says The Quietus
Released yesterday, SABA's new album, Care For Me
, finds the rising Chicago MC (and Stack favorite
) refining his smooth, introspective craft with cameos by Chance the Rapper, theMIND, and Kaina. "Smile" is a feel-good ode to his family.
For his new album, composer Adrian Younge recruits opera singer Brooke deRosa and jazz singer Rebecca Englehart to build "an unrelenting mix of funk, R&B, jazz, and folk, all refracted through a kaleidoscopic lens," says Bandcamp Daily
North London lyricist Bakar brings hip-hop influences into his melodic punk-spirited pop music. "A warm and raucous offering from a refreshing artist who's bringing indie rock back in a big way," says Dummy
, a self-released LP from Montreal electronic-pop duo Young Galaxy.
, the hopeful new album from Brooklyn-based indie-pop project Air Waves.
Producer/DJs Shy One and Hector Plimmer mix a mellow two-hour set of freeform jazz, soul, and house for Peckham-based radio station Balamii.
Pitchfork makes the case for calling Boards of Canada’s Music Has the Right to Children the greatest psychedelic album of the ’90s:
"Listening to tracks like 'Wildlife Analysis' or 'The Color of the Fire,' you can’t help but think of yellowing photographs in the family album, blotchy and washed-out Super-8 films, or the drop-out addled sound of favorite cassettes left too long on the car dashboard."
Thanks for listening!
