"New Release Friday 2021-09-24"


          

Feels like the biggest day in a while (at least for stuff that interests me, lol). Haven't dug too deep but in hip hop and r&b there's at least:

Blu - The Color Blu(e)

Solemn Brigham (of Marlowe) - South Sinner Street

Nao - And Then Life Was Beautiful (with features from Lucky Daye, Lianne La Havas, and serpentwithfeet)

Hitler Wears Hermes 8: Side B


And then some other fun stuff including...

Esperanza Spalding - Songwrights Apothecary Lab

Theo Croker - BLK2LIFE||A FUTURE PAST

Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine - A Beginner's Mind


Quite a few singles of interest too. What's everyone checking out?

I was starting to get excited about Big Boi and Sleepy but it looks like I wasted my time on that one for now/it didn't drop. When I went looking for that one last night, my app slapped me in the face with the Hitler B, so I'll be on that one today!

I want/need to spread my wings though. I want to take some more time for R&B because it seems clear that folks are making good stuff out there.

Forgot that Big Boi/Sleepy was supposed to drop... if Donda hadn't happened I'd say this is the most fumbled roll-out in a while, lol. I'm honestly not too interested at this point. Singles didn't grab me at all...

There's been some great stuff this year. I haven't checked out the Nao yet but I'm expecting it to pretty good. If you haven't checked that Cleo Sol "Mother" album yet, that's great, too!

That's something I played a lot.
I'll have to check that out.
Sometimes I don't know somebody has an album out
until I see this post..ha.

WAYNE SNOW
https://waynesnow.bandcamp.com/album/figurine?from=fanpub_fb

Almost forgot about dude. Loved his Freedom TV album.
The joints I've been hearing on this new project are right down my lane.
Paid for the vinyl import...I DON'T CARE I DON'T CARE!
That cover is killer!

Let me add in ROMderful has a new single out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfZ76rTqIDo

His Ice Cream Clones is worth a listen
(i've said this in this post before...but I dig it)

It's all new material, beats and rhymes are very much like the Miles album from last year (in a good way, not necessarily redundant or anything). Not sure who produced it all.

It's themed around the color of blue which, tbh, I thought I'd get tired of but overall it works well. I do feel like he'd kind of rolled through a lot of that material on the last album... I didn't listen too close yet so maybe he's spinning it somehow. Anyhow, good first listen, probably get a lot of play for a while (but most Blu releases do right now).

Miles was overcooked and corny in parts.

So far, this is really fucking good.

Out on SomeOthaShip -- I don't know who this is but dude is kind of rapping his ass off.

https://someothaship.bandcamp.com/album/soil

Just a quick listen but I'll definitely go back for a closer one soon.

That song.....whew! Mean mug and all of that.

I can't lie, the album seems like the best thing he's ever released (I know, prisoner of the moment). Gunn is not my favorite rapper by any stretch and frankly can be annoying in large doses so an album heavy with features, mostly limiting him to 1 verse per song, over classic Griselda boom-bap, easy win for me.

I honestly can’t think of any hip hop beatmakers that are women. Her name is Sovren. I had to look up who made that,and was shocked it was an unknown(to me).

Dope of WSG to keep putting people on and giving them a platform.

Something about her voice just doesn't work for me. I had to fight the urge to skip tracks on the first listen even though some of the production is great and the actual vocal *arrangements* were engaging. It's her tone that doesn't work and that's not a diss to her, more just that I don't personally enjoy it.

Might grow on me though.
