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!
