3032190, New Release Friday - 2021-04-30
Posted by thebigfunk, Fri Apr-30-21 08:34 AM
A few things right out the gate:

* new single from Jessie Ware, "Please"

This is in advance of a deluxe edition of What's Your Pleasure. I get tired of deluxe editions and they are all the rage right now (somewhat understandably in the age of COVID) BUT her deluxe extra tracks are often really, really good so I'm really not complaining.

* Alchemist - This Thing of Ours EP feat Earl, Navy Blue, Pink Siifu, and others

* new single from Skyzoo, "Bed-stuy is burning" in advance of his upcoming album All the Brilliant Things

I think Flying Lotus has something new out. Lots of other more random stuff out there.

What's everyone checking for?

Matt Johnson

I know it's not a "new release" but I wanted to share what I copped.

Plus, I got a TON of music I really need to spend time with anyway.

That was a great record -- thanks for highlighting it last year, probably wouldn't have known about it otherwise. I think he has a new single out: "Snow Child" -- haven't checked it yet but it's def on Spotify.

Thanks for the heads up - how is it?

3032224, I like it but it's so much different from Quadron

>Thanks for the heads up - how is it?

she's not as funky solo but there are some nice jams on here. it's a lot on the mellow side

3032247, I thought this might be Coco from Quadron...

...but I was too lazy to ask.

Now I need to check this out.
3032280, this is one of the cooler cuts

3032205, Rochelle Jordan's new one is fire
Posted by soulsike, Sat May-01-21 01:34 PM
called "Play With the Changes".

new Dawn Richard, too.

I've been enjoying "3" by Maiya Blaney (new name to me)

3032216, looking forward to this
Posted by thebigfunk, Sun May-02-21 08:10 AM
and the new Dawn Richard is on the to-listen-to list as well... she deserves more attention than she gets.

Maiya Blaney is a new name to me, too - thanks for sharing!

3032222, I had to drive a circle around the city today
Posted by soulsike, Sun May-02-21 12:44 PM
doing errands, and really gave me a chance to enjoy the Dawn Richard album, which didn't get justice on the PC setup. Really solid work. Hope she gets her flowers this time around.

She shoulda got a Grammy for Blackheart, real talk... Anything after that is just making up for lost ground...
3032318, The Rochelle one was kind of a mixed bag until All Along hit.

That song is so catchy, I want a remix with De La Soul or Freddie Gibbs...or both lol. From there it was pretty good.

Good looking out on this one. I loved it on first listen. I think it will hold up too. Definitely recommend checking this one out.
3032684, Alchemist EP is fire.
