I swear there was a ton of shit dropping today but right now I can't think of or find much of it, lol. But a few things I'm checking for sure:
Tall Black Guy & Ozay Moore - Of Process and Progression * Listening to this now, just a few tracks in but already feeling like this might be the pick of the week. Just a lot of fun so far. This is TBG's year for sure.
Quantic and Nidia Gongora - Almas Conectadas * This should be super tight -- singles have all been great. Good reminder to revisit their earlier collab, Curao, from 2017.
Bedouine - Waysides * Kind of a throwback to sparse but lush late 60s/70s folk a la Nick Drake without ever feeling purely imitation. I liked her last album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy, a lot -- great songwriting and a very patient approach to each song's arrangement. Good fall music waking up/winding down music if it's your thing.
Omar Sosa and Seckou Keita - Suba Sosa's piano + Keita's kora + their combined rhythmic genius should make for a really engaging listen -- really excited for this one.
