A fresh haul of heat to cap the week.
Happy Friday, good people. If you’re ready to shake the mild warmth of spring, Release Day’s already got its eye on a blazing (and buoyant) summer.
Today’s list of essential long-plays spans the gamut of experimental soul, tedious trap, and full-float funk, with new studio projects from Jamila Woods, Young Nudy, The Visions, and Mac DeMarco.
And the loosies are just as potent. Flying Lotus and Anderson .Paak finally crossed the stream on a new single from the producer’s upcoming album, Flamagra. Breakbot ramped up Lizzo‘s feel-good disco lead. Denzel Curry snapped on a frenetic frequency. Georgia Anne Muldrow cooled off with a heavy dose of moody and atmospheric blues. Shay Lia and Buddy spin pure silk on their enchanting link-up. Skepta’s announced his return with an icy trap tease. Maxo Kream and Megan Thee Stallion stomped and slurred over a tremmoring trap beat. And that’s just half the script.
