3026944, New Release Friday - 2020-09-18
Posted by thebigfunk, Fri Sep-18-20 08:29 AM
The big release this week around here is probably SAULT - Untitled (Rise) ... and for good reason!

What's on everyone's radar?

Some other stuff I'm checking out:

Takuya Kuroda - Fly Moon Die Soon

Sly5thAve - What It Is (on Tru Thoughts, looks like Denitia's on a few songs)

Namir Blade - Aphelion's Traveling Circus (unfamiliar with the act but it's on Mello so probably worth a listen)

Brittany Howard released two remixes from the Jaime album.

And there's a new Murs collab project... "He's the Christian I'm the Rapper" (lol)

And for the acoustic/singer-songwriter/folk/americana listeners ... Gillian Welch - Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs, Vol. 2
--- This makes three releases of "new" material in just a handful of months, two albums of unreleased songs and one album of covers. All unexpected and all stellar.

Excited about new music.
Some of the loosies he's released have been solid.
3026980, Declaime/Madlib - Illminded

Apparently this is a recently found collection of tapes from the mid-90s that Declaime and Madlib worked on together? Haven't listened yet but that sounds really promising.

3026988, Solid week IMO

The Alicia Keys album slaps when you slice the ultra-positive joints out (she makes way too many of those songs IMO). So glad to see another Sampha collab, "3 Hour Drive" should be a hit, but it probably won't be.


BONUS: youtube likes to slow down songs and add a bunch of reverb to them....which making a more "VIBES" version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1qnXmreGRc

I really like the Busta/Anderson Paak single....the internet seems decisive on it.

Here's "YUUUU": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9wNNpNrXPA

Honestly Busta should've just stole "Bubblin" since it sounded like a Busta Rhymes song anyway.

Curren$y & Harry Fraud made another project out of the scraps of The Outrunners.....which it okay because there's no such thing as a bad Curren$y project. They're either good or great.

The Armani Ceaser album was okay....she's gonna need time to develop because all the features and the beats propped her up (FlyGod is pretty damn good at putting together projects). I can't stop listening to "Drill-O-Rama" with Benny tho.


Also solid songs from Rapsody, Black Coffee and another banger from SAULT. I thought next week was supposed to be the big week.
