Bullion - Blue Pedro

Posted by 4 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
A hometown friend and frequent collaborator of Westerman, Nathan Jenkins aka Bullion is known for genre-bending dance releases on R&S and Young Turks. This "rhythmic sea-shanty anthem," per TRUANTS, arrived last year on Trilogy Tapes.

Obongjayar - CREEPING (Prod. by Lars)

Born in Nigeria, fellow Londoner and rising talent Steven Umoh aka Obongjayar "powerfully mixes spoken word with music to create a transcendent slam poetry experience," says Highclouds. He tags the sound as "spiritual."

Amen Dunes - Miki Dora

One of the most celebrated works of the year belongs to experimental pop songwriter Amen Dunes (Stack №6). Released in March, Freedom is "a momentous, unprecedentedly confessional record for the New Yorker," says The Quietus.

Kadhja Bonet - Wings

Posted by 1 site • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Out now on Fat Possum, the soulful, psychedelic new album from LA-based multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Kadhja Bonet has range. "Wings" displays the dreamy, orchestral side of its spectrum.

Angel Olsen - Unfucktheworld

The world awaits Angel Olsen's next move following the widescreen rock of 2016's LP My Woman. In the meantime, this sparse opening track to 2014's Burn Your Fire for No Witness reveals a songwriting influence of Westerman's.
Prototype, the new album from jazz composer Reginald Chapman.

Astronauts, etc. - The Room

Living In Symbol, the new LP from Oakland-based psych-pop project Astronauts, etc.
Bullion (above) makes TRUANTS a mix of blissful and eccentric '80s jams.

The New York Times talks to Ryuichi Sakamoto about restaurant playlists:

"I love your food, I respect you and I love this restaurant, but I hate the music."

Thanks for listening!
