.Paak released the best Summer album of 2016…in January. Call it whatever you want – hip hop, neo-soul, RnB, millennial jazz, and so on. It’s all of these sounds and more. It’s powerful, it’s brilliant, it’s visionary, and it sounds fantastic.
♩ Anderson .Paak – The Season | Carry Me [from Malibu]
The group’s first new release since 2012. Good Lord. This is fantastic. It may or may not be about current(?)/former(?) bandmate Amber Coffman, but it’s new Dirty Projectors and it’s fantastic. I can’t wait to hear more.
♩ Dirty Projectors – Keep Your Name [single]
Yet another indie pop gem from a group that is finally getting the long overdue praise they deserve.
♩ Fialta – Do the Best We Can [from Shadow of a Drought]
