The new track from Dutch artist and Blood Orange collaborator BEA1991 "elicits chills and haunting future-Sade vibes," says Gorilla Vs. Bear. It's a standalone self-released single, though she does hint at a debut album in the works.

Ari Lennox - Grampa

With lines grooving between seductive and funny, Washington D.C. singer and Dreamville-signee Ari Lennox "offers up deep longing and throwback R&B," per Pitchfork, making the case for her lover to leave the video games behind.

The noise-pop of Columbus, Ohio-based band didi recalls that of "college-rock heroes Sonic Youth and Pixies spiked with the intersectional perspective of a lineup that counts Japan, Colombia, and Mexico in its collective lineage," says Stereogum.

Helado Negro - Please Won't Please

Ecuadorian-American artist Roberto Carlos Lange (Stack №101) announces his sixth album and second for RVNG Intl. After his political 2016 LP, the songwriter turns inward here, capturing "a visceral postcard of his soul," says Cause=Time.

Shampoo You, the new album from Chicago-based power-punk band Axis: Sova.

Sunken Cities, the debut album from Brooklyn-based electronic duo Odd Rumblings.

For XLR8R, Sutherland (above) mixes "some recent modal, jazz dance, and spiritual records that I’ve picked up in the last few months, and a couple of old favorites."

Pitchfork on pop’s morose new normal:

"Aren’t pop songs generally meant to lift us up? Or at least make us forget, for a moment, how terrible everything else is?"

Thanks for listening!
