Laura Jane Lowther, aka KUČKA, returns with her first single in three years, also her first with LuckyMe, accompanied by a music video shot in her hometown, Liverpool.

Following a breakout mixtape in 2017, Zambian-born, Botswana-raised, Sydney-based rapper, singer, and poet Sampa The Great (Stack №164) has released her debut album via Ninja Tune. "An accomplished blend of R&B, hip-hop, jazz, and Southern African influences," says TwistedSoul.

J Chrysalis - A Kind Robin

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Rising London producer J Chrysalis lands on experimental dance label Blank Mind for two expressive club tracks. The A-Side here is precise and effective. Per Test Pressing, "its hook line is some kind of modulating incomplete arpeggio that worms its way into your very noggin."

Say Sue Me - Your Book

Posted by 7 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
From the South Korean port city of Busan, Say Sue Me play with elements of indie-pop, shoegaze, and surf rock. Stereogum says "Your Book," one of two new singles, "has a souped-up Yo La Tengo vibe, but transforms into an outright noise blaster on the second half."

Jamael Dean - Kronos

Posted by 5 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Jazz prodigy Jamael Dean has collaborated and performed with the likes of Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, and Carlos Niño. The 21-year old's debut album, out today on Stones Throw, is "a dizzying, kaleidoscopic record that has as much in common with drone and ambient as it does with jazz and R&B," says Bandcamp Daily.
J Chrysalis renders a coveted Blowing Up The Workshop mix featuring an assortment of abstract lounge, new age, and dance music.

Kate Davis - Daisy

Trophy, the debut LP from indie rock songwriter Kate Davis.

Roland Tings - Up Close

Posted by 8 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Salt Water, the new album from Australian producer Roland Tings.

In MEL, Quinn Myers organizes an oral history of Limewire, the little app that changed the music industry forever:

"You could look at someone’s iPod, and if a song said something like '2000_Kanye_my_chemical_romance.mp3,' you knew that they were using LimeWire."

Thanks for listening!
