On the cusp of releasing her debut full-length, TDE‘s First Lady, SZA, delivered another ice cold cut for late-night consumption, while Francophonic pop perfectionists, Phoenix, followed suit with their own vintage synth seductions on a new single. OVO’s ace-in-the-hole, PARTYNEXTDOOR, surprised us with his own four-track release, featuring a few particularly kush-friendly concoctions that’ll do you well on the weekend wind-down. H.E.R. managed to escalate their own enigma with a stellar new single and Arcade Fire announced their forthcoming album with a delightful disco pop romp produced by Daft Punk‘s Thomas Bangalter.

And that barely tells the week’s tale. Hear it all in another heady transmission of The Round-Up below and be sure to take note of newcomers like JaramiJay Worthy, Stro and alcordo for continued listening from some exceptional upstarts.
