It’s almost the midway point of the year and I must admit that I haven’t listened to a ton of music lately. (I’ve been favoring podcasts now.) Still, here are some releases for this year that piqued my interest.
- Action Bronson – Mr. Wonderful
- BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – SOUR SOUL
- Kamasi Washington – The Epic
- Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly
- Natalie Prass – Natalie Prass
- Shamir – Ratchet
(Except for Natalie Prass, pucha puro rap or jazz. Or both!)
So sad I couldn’t even come up with ten releases. But it’s worth mentioning that there are lots of albums that I’m sure are great but I just hadn’t had time to listen to. Like Sufjan’s Carrie & Lowell, Viet Cong’s self-titled, Jim O’Rourke’s Simple Songs and My Morning Jacket’s The Waterfall.
Now if only I can find that time.
