Happy Friday, good people. Release Day’s arrived with a fresh bag of heat. So let’s dive right the fuck in.
Topping a short-stack of studio albums, Anderson .Paak‘s Oxnard-killing follow-up is here to chase the lingering bitterness of his 2018 Aftermath debut with a batch of rubbery and intoxicating cuts. And Rejoicer’s lushly experimental, Heavy Smoke, is the fix to your post-Low End Theory itch.
But the bulk of the week’s releases are building towards summer and late-year reveals. ScHoolboy Q wrangled Travis Scott for his latest single off an upcoming full-length. Steve Lacy dropped a simmering mid-tempo suite. Kaytranada brought it back to the dance floor with VanJess in tow. Tame Impala followed the Saturday Night Live premiere of “Borderline” with the track’s glimmering studio take. Mark Ronson slipped into a house mood with his latest. Crumb cast a psyche-pop spell. And that’s hardly the full script.
