Here are five of my favorite albums from the last month or so:
Yuno – Moodie EP (Sub Pop Records)
From his Apple Music profile: “Yuno blends surf pop, synth pop, and R&B into smooth yet distinctive songs.”
Translation: catchy summer jams. So good — hope there is more on the way soon.
Snail Mail – Lush (Matador Records)
The debut full-length from Lindsey Jordan is SO good. Can’t get enough. Highlights are Pristine and Heat Wave.
Soccer Mommy – Clean (Fat Possum Records)
Best description I have is a combination of Liz Phair, Snail Mail, and Japanese Breakfast — which means awesome in my book.
Joey Bada$$ – 1999
The re-released version of his 2012 mixtape & debut. So talented and fresh, even 6 years later.
The Carters – Everything is Love
A surprise release from the super duo. Bey shines here for me, but Jay is no slouch. All you would expect from them and more. Check it!
